Kerstin Lindquist: Bad to the (Pubic) Bone

Recommended Posts

I was horrified too. Kerstin took away the poor deceased lady's privacy and dignity. Something is really messed up with a person who thinks it's a good idea to post things like that on public social media.

Social Media is a horrible thing for family members of attention seekers. They will share things that should be kept in the family, just for a thumbs up 😞

I can’t access the IG, but I don’t like the pictures either. 

There is something sacred about the clasped hands of loved ones, especially before one physically departs this world. If that’s what I’m seeing. It isn’t, to me, a photo op.

There is nothing social about impending death. A person’s final moments are not an event to share, an informal gathering for a mortality club. Nor is it something to be broadcasted.

Coincidentally, within the last twenty minutes, I found this passage in a local paper from years ago. The author was acknowledging the closing of a church and its last Mass. The reference to “the final touch of a parent”  was particularly poignant to me. And how timely, regarding Kerstin (and another host’s picture of her dying father’s hand).

It wasn't the clasping of the still-living person's hand that upset me so much. It was the coffin picture. The final moments were long gone.

I’m not on Instagram, but was able to see some photos, not all .  Only the “hand” one, which I also do not think was so awful.  But casket??  On social media??   Eek.   I guess some people grieve so much, they want to share?

All I know is that when I was holding my mother's hand as she passed, the last thing on my mind was "where's a camera?" I just don't and never will understand the social media obsession.

Does she have a personal IG? I don't see any coffin or "hand" pics on the QVC IG page. Maybe she took them down?

On Kerstin's "personal" fb page, not her Q pg, it looks like she's in the casket with her Mom taking a selfie!  Inappropriate and absolutely horrifying!

It is sad, but not necessarily in her mom’s casket.   She is grieving and may regret these photos later.  My mom, also Alzheimer’s, but much later in life and she was a pleasant and mostly cheery, although missing my dad, who had passed and had been her touchstone to reality, I believe.  She died at age 93, much older than Kerstin’s mother.    I have read that each Alzheimer’s patient’s journey is different, so I cannot judge.  I send my sympathies to Kerstin as she grieves.

Kerstin said she'd be back Monday morning, then will take another week off. The QVC program guide shows her scheduled for 9:00-11:00 a.m. with LOGO Lori fashions. I don't understand why she's coming in to work for just one show and then leaving again.

Edited to add: I checked the program guide again, and Kerstin is scheduled to be back from her week off on Wednesday, April 7, with a Spring Cleaning show at 1:00 p.m. Back again on Thursday, April 8, at 8:00 p.m. for Down Home with David.

My mother also had this horrid disease.  I'm not judging one's journey, however her need to post this very intimate picture on her social media is certainly disrespectful of her mother.  You have to draw the line at what is honorable.  Apparently nothing is sacred.

I'm so happy to see Kerstin back on the Q this morning. I can certainly understand what she's going through. I lost my mother, suddenly, in 2016 and I still grieve for her. It does become easier over time, but you're never the same again. Kerstin's handling herself with such dignity and courage, which isn't always easy when you're on national television. Good for her! I continue to pray for Kerstin and her family in the days ahead.

In a world where you can be anything, always be kind.

It makes me sad that some people are so desperate for attention. Starving herself, carefully angled poses, one sunburn away from skin cancer, totally inappropriate public sharing of personal moments. Once again, she needs to check that bible for the bits about being humble, and vanity. 
And go pay a professional therapist, QVC watchers are not going to help you get your shit together.

Yes certainly.  We all have lost loved ones, all of us, but one should be kind as well as respecting the deceased from being shown on public media.

She seems very pleased with all the attention she received by her thank you speech on fb today.  Of course she mentioned how social media can be a very hateful place but was surprised by all the positive messages.  My question is, then why post such a fragile, delicate, meaningful and vulnerable time in your life on there to a bunch of potentially "hateful' strangers!  She's insufferable.  Sadly, she doesn't even seem to be a people person or like many people, especially those on sm. She only needs them for an audience to feed her big giant self-serving narcissistic ego.

My condolences to those who loved and will miss Kerstin's mother.  May she rest in peace.

But after seeing that photo above, it must be said:  narcissism knows no bounds and disrespects the dignity of others, as does Kerstin's particular strain of neediness.

I actually removed my FB app from my phone today because I was sick of seeing overshared personal info from some friends.

A friend's wife posted every detail about her father-in-law's terminal illness, the logistics of where she, her husband, and every family member will be living during this difficult time, loads of family photos, and a final "he will be missed" sentiment while the man is currently receiving hospice care and has not yet passed.

When people (and even animals) can't protect their own privacy and pride, they count on others to do it for them.

"Me, me, me" selfie culture threw all of that out the window.

Kerstin just took it to the nth degree.

Shameful.

Reading what Kerstin wrote to go along with that post-mortem photo, her mother had many serious health challenges throughout her life.

One could see why Kerstin could have become obsessed with diet and exercise and also more religious.  But she used her mother's very recent passing as an opportunity to expound on this, to talk about herself, and how the sicknesses have affected her.

There's time for all of that.  But right now, what about reflecting on your mother's life, who she was, things that were important to her?

I just feel a book is in the works.  Nothing wrong with being ambitious as a writer (who spelled "lose" as "loose" twice therein).  But being opportunistic during an emotionally raw time is pretty awful.

We probably all know narcissistic people, have high hopes that some major event or breakthrough will change them for the better, but it never happens.

And to top it off...

Kerstin:  "Give me cancer any day over what we saw her go through with Alzheimer’s."

No, Kerstin.  Cancer is horrendous in its own horrible way.  Please choose your words wisely.

I have a photo of my fathers hand in mine when he passed....it is a private for me only photo.  NEVER would agree it on social media looking for attention.  And for her to say she’d rather have cancer?  I’m a cancer survivor and daughter of a father who suffered and died from dementia..... F her.... cancer and the treatments are not something to say you’d rather have.  Bitch has no clue.  Keep starving yourself you narcissistic biotch

This bitch never stops. I’m pretty sure everyone here has had cancer effect them and their family. My mother RIP was a breast cancer survivor. Watching her suffer was heartbreaking. This was when marijuana was illegal everywhere. My brother took the chance of going to jail just so my mom could keep her food down during her treatments. Just thinking about it has brought tears to my eyes. You fucking bitch . You got your attention but you have to keep pushing it. I’m sorry for my language.

Back on Monday for her three-hour Logo Lori show. Her face looked tired and strained, eyes puffy. While litening to Lori speak, she often looked somber.

But she managed some smiles for Lori and the camera.

I swear she wore everything in the show except for a pair of jeans. Apparently every time they put the camera on a model, Kerstin was busy changing tops, just like the Unshowered One does sometimes. She was so anxious to wear all the clothes that she even changed right on camera a couple of times.

She must have been eating even less broccoli than usual, because she looks thinner. Not too bad from the front, since her lower legs are thick, but from the side, she's a scrawny stick. I think she has convinced herself that if she keeps her body on the verge of starvation, it will protect her from developing dementia. Or else she  just has a serious eating disorder for some other reason.

I saw her do small leg lifts a couple of times, like she was trying to sneak in some exercise. After her show ended, I'll bet she went outside and power-walked around the building for 30 minutes before going home.

Those light tan leggings look horrible. A couple of the models wore them and they looked awful too.

Not for me to suggest how anyone else deals with the death of a loved one. I do wonder what the motivation was for her to go into work yesterday morning though. I mean, why would anyone do that when there are doubtless things to be arranged at home and where there’s presumably (hopefully) no pressure from your employer under such circumstances. I don’t understand it.

Why don't they ever have Shawn pitch in and do a show for her?  She doesn't need Courtney to babysit her and Courtney could have gone solo.  No reason for Kerstin to work that segment  at all and then be absent for awhile.  Go off work and certainly go offline.

You couldn't stop kerstink even with a gun to her head. No one was going to work the segment but her. She was in all her glory. In her head."MY FANS  FEEL SORRY FOR ME AND THEY LOVE ME.

She is covering her tracks and noting on IG that her Mom is still alive in what looks like a coffin and it wasn't taken at her funeral, so she doesn't look as insensitive.   The photo had me fooled and is still disturbing.

Fooled me too. If the mom was still alive, she must have been almost gone.

Notice how Kerstin put herself first in the sentence? She said "Last photo of me an [sic] my mom..."  instead of "Last photo of my mom and me..." It was supposed to be about the end of her mother's life, not another opportunity for Kerstin to get her face on social media.

When I seen that photo. I was in total shock ! You can show 100 people that photo and 100 people will say she was in a coffin ⚰️ Even if she wasn’t (which I don’t believe)who tells someone to take a picture of them crying over their mother’s DEATH BED ☹️Then feels the need to post it on social media. Your drying mother is not a promotion prop. Get some help, you sick bitch.

Perhaps she saw Skunky’s performance when her father died and decided this was normal behaviour. 
You know what, the thing that’s so pathetic but almost laughable is that this sort of thing happens amid the general pious tone that QVC projects. Everything is depicted as so wholesome, perfect products for perfect families sold by perfect hosts. Then they have two of their most high profile employees behaving like this in a time that’s meant to be private and reflective. It’s so crass.
