    Shawn Killinger: The Good, The Bad, The Skunky

    And meanwhile, QVC viewers are getting angry. Complaints about Dare to Share Beauty show being too chaotic...... Complaints about too many QVC channels and repeat shows.......... Complaints about hosts leaving yet certain hosts who are worse staying.... Complaints about shipping, both cost and length of time it takes to receive...... Complaints about too many people on the set - host, OAP, models .......

    Yeah, I don't get it AT ALL. With his experience, you'd think he'd be the last to go, compared with the three whose names I don't know.

    yeah, his QVC Facebook page is 86'd, same as Cathy's was when she got the boot. I don't even know what to think....poor guy was great in the UK, right? He barely was on air here, I know I never saw him.

    Oh, so true! But I venture a guess the feeling is quite mutual!!

    I was thinking something similar. David has a "shtick".......and up until the past year, his show was showing a lot of new stuff, and as an avid "pretend" chef, I really enjoyed watching and bought quite a bit. I think Shawn's days are numbered. Maybe it's wishful thinking on my part, but she doesn't seem to fit anywhere and while her "shtick" seems to be that of a ditzy teenager, it's not going to sustain her or QVC in the long run. No one likes seeing a 40 year old pretend to be a tweener! To me, Shawn appears to be in limbo, in terms of what QVC wants to do with her. Her own attitude will get in the way of that - as much as I don't like seeing a 40-ish year old woman pretend to be a 20 year old, I also don't like seeing someone act bored or rude on the rare occasions I tune in. At the end of the day, I think it's about product offering and service. And we all know that QVC's product offerings have gone downhill. Add to that their lame shipping charges and their slow shipping, and it's a recipe for tanking hard. They keep wanting us to think it's the hosts who will make me buy.....and it's just not. At least for me.

    You're right! I left a company 7 years ago, one that had been very good to me for 24 years. Rumors were everywhere that they were going to be sold...and six months after I left, it was announced that they were selling. It was horrible to work there when the rumors of selling were happening, and it was worse once the company was bought. Of the 15 tenured sales reps that were there when I left - and they had been there even longer than I - only two remain. Those people left on their own because it became such a struggle to get anything done for their customers that they were losing customers - income for them - and it was too stressful. Companies who are in turmoil don't want their best to leave. They have to keep the money flowing in. Jill was a known commodity there with viewers and had a following. In QVC's case, they are on a downward spiral because times have changed. They can try all they want to buck the trend, but it's only going to spiral more in the very near future. I read last week that in 5 years shopping malls as we know them aren't going to exist. That's pretty sobering. Companies who have an online presence will survive. This television medium can't be much better....

    Agree - we've all been saying this about her for the past year or so. She looked miserable and I'm not talking about her outer appearance, either. I think she's smart......I wouldn't want to be anywhere near QVC....the place is dying a slow death with a management team that seems ill equipped to change it - and I don't even think it can be changed. The web is where it's at. She's smart to leave now while she's still young enough to find her bliss, whatever that means for her. I'm 56 and I went through a complete overhaul of my career in 2012. I've discussed it here in a post or two. I knew that if I waited until I was in my 50's it couldn't happen, for a host of reasons. We're not who we were in our 20's or 30's......so I believe Jill when she says she wants to see what can come next. And if it is that QVC didn't want her, then f**k them - it just proves they don't know what the hell they are doing, replacing her with these terrible hosts they've been hiring!

    Why is it that when a host leaves, we all think it's because QVC didn't want them anymore? Why is it so hard to believe that a host would want to move on and do something different? Employment is a two way street. She has looked lighter the last few times I've seen her on air, which is evidence to me that she's at peace with whatever she is leaving behind. As someone who has started over, sometimes, it isn't the money that makes you want to go or stay, it's about having a sense of inner peace and happiness.

    Small Talk: Take A Break From Shop(ping) Talk

    Geller's website has been having nothing but sales.......I've bought directly from there a few times, so get emails. It's strange to me because all I ever remember them having was one big sale once a year. It's given me pause, that's for sure.....I've been using her Balance & Brighten foundation for years and would hate to see that go away.

    QVC

    Wow. I'm really shocked at Jill's announcement. But when you think about her reasons, plus the fact that she has done that job for 1/2 her life, you can understand why she may want to move on. She wasn't my favorite, in terms of "personality", but she was always professional. Way better than some of the other hosts, old and new. Now................I wonder who she'll gift her lucky, wrinkly white pants to?

    Just to say it again, I loathe Kerstin.....this picture sums up why!

    Ever since someone here posted that video of the dating show that Kerstin was on, I can barely look at her. I didn't like her before, now I truly loathe her! Every look she makes, I want to punch her. Every glance she makes, every show of her pubic bone, I loathe. She is the biggest phony, the biggest show-off I have ever seen. I loathe her even more than Shawn, which I never thought possible! And you all know how much I loathe Shawn!

    THAT move (hiding cards) was a move my parents did. It scarred me for life! Not really, but I didn't miss an opportunity to tell my folks that it did. I was well in my 40's and was still harping on it!

    Shawn Killinger: The Good, The Bad, The Skunky

    yes, and telling the same, tired story about her lady bug tattoo - which even I can recite verbatim since I've heard it a cajillion times in the past 10 years - her best friend who died of kidney cancer...blah, blah, blah. So daring!

    Thanks for posting this. I did know this about them but it's always a good reminder. They are good people who walk their talk. P.S. Would love a close up of that blue diamond the article mentions. My name here isn't "Lovesmesomejewelry" for nothing!

    Oh! But Harry Slatkin isn't, as you say, a homo. He's married to Nest Lady!*** We call her Nest Lady because she owns Nest and is frequently on QVC selling her perfume and, well, her hair is a 1960's version of a nest! ***wink wink, nod nod

    I understand what you're saying, completely. I would venture a guess that that is what Lisa Mason wanted to do, sit back, grieve and be in the moment, but someone else beat her to the punch.

    Oh no! I am so sorry to hear this. I sort of stopped following her story and hadn't read her FB page since Christmas. He was doing so well! I hate cancer. ETA: I just checked her FB page and she posted this 25 minutes ago. There is no indication that he was sick, although there is about a week where she didn't post anything, then this post a short time ago....... I wonder if she is upset that MaryBeth posted it?? There is nothing more disappointing than when a confidence is broken in the midst of anguish and heart-break. And, broken by a person believed to be a trusted friend. At a later time, I will share the story of my beloved husband’s final moments. For now, God bless you and thank you for your understanding.

    I'm either really tired or my mind is in the gutter! I read this statement as "Mr. Happy Pants". Took me 5 minutes to realize you typed Mr. Happy Dance.
