MyPillow isn't going to be showing up on Q or HSN anyway; it moved to Evine/ShopHQ in mid-2019.  Looks like SHQ has jettisoned the brand, although that channel has reduced its on-air time for home goods so much in the past two years that doing so made a rather insignificant dent in its programming.

First, thanks to the posters who expressed compassion about my experience over at that other board. I guess I am too naive and sensitive, but, whatever. They still like me on the Kitchen and TV threads!

@lovemesomejoolery - you are awesome!!

I  agree that the usual nasty posters I have seen are the ones who don't like the My Pillow guy and his politics. I heard that Bed, Bath and Beyond will no longer sell them, either. Ridiculous. 

I am just looking forward to the next All Day Cooking Day, which I know, annoys the heck out of many others!

I don't care what his politics were. He was creepy as hell all on his own. I don't miss him one bit.

I totally agree, and we all must be on the board at different times, because for about 2 weeks all I saw was deleted pro My Pillow posts. Whatever, it’s no great loss.

I just learned this evening that people are vicious in the question/answer part of the product page on the website. There were some feelings about the TSV.

Josie's back tonight. I always like to see what she's wearing. Tonight it's a low-cut pink dress, and for some reason she's wearing a black bra under it. She's lightened her hair. Sandra Bennett is hosting (alone, yay).

I like to see the dresses Josie's models are wearing too, because they are usually very odd dresses!  It always makes me wonder if they are put in weird dresses on purpose so Josie's dresses will look prettier in comparison.

I just looked and you're right! 

I appreciated two people who were positive:  One said she was going to paint her toenails green and wear them for St. Patrick's Day, while another said she thought you'd look fine wearing these with shorts "out and about".

Counterbalanced by someone's whose feelings sort of mirror my own:  I'm a middle aged woman who wants to be Classy not Trashy.

That's about as vicious as I saw!  It would appear that anyone's REAL questions were not even answered by anyone, except for people who asked stuff that was already in the description....people had to point that out to them!

The big question I have is who told people to comment on this stuff in the  Q & A section of the product?  SMH.

He loves her for ** obvious ** reasons, but he also thinks she's simple.  I remind him that she's so simple she's created a pretty lucrative empire!

I like Josie too. (Although I haven't tried her products yet.) She's always smiling and apparently high as a kite, looking like she's just having fun. But you're right, she's accomplished a lot. While she's doing all that smiling and posing, she's working. She's been great at marketing her products and growing her company.

The gossip rags claimed he was having an affair with a Broadway actress. Both of them denied it, and both said they had never even met each other. It was just a fabricated story. The rags were trying to profit from all the publicity he was getting. Why they picked on that actress, I don't know. She hasn't done anything controversial. I had never heard of her.

If it was Jane Krakowski, she was in 30 Rock (tv show, with Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin).

Just for the heck of it I checked her IMBD, and it looks like she has been pretty steadily employed. What made me laugh, was when I saw she was cousin Vicki I National Lampoons Vacation in 1983. I love that movie, remember she was cousin Eddie’s daughter. 🤣

I first watched Jane Krakowski in Ally McBeal.  Her 'face bra' is a classic.

She also did the commercials for the Tropicana Trop 50 orange juice, which are fairly recent.

Oh, that's so sad. I adore Sue. She could go on air for six hours selling dryer lint and I'd watch the whole thing. A lovely voice; friendly and fun, without being silly or unprofessional; knowledgeable and well-prepared for every show. Condolences to her and her family.

ETA: May I ask where you read the news? I can't find any mention of it.

The "other boards."  Someone copied an announcement from Sue's Facebook page.

Here is the post:

 

Sue Clifton

is with Joel Clifton  

 

To the love of my life and oh what a life it’s been.... they say love is more precious then gold and Joel you were my Brick! You have given us all the most wonderful life . We are all lucky to have done so much in this short timeframe and enjoyed every minute of everyday with you the husband , father ,grandpa and best friend anyone could ever ask for. When the tumor appeared in 2003 we thanked the lord it was not cancer and excepted the fact life now needed to be lived to the fullest and I can honestly say this has been done with the so many who knew you and had no idea what you had going on in that Beautiful Soul. Goodbye for now Joel my Love we will meet again!

And they wonder why the apparel category was down every quarter last year in comparison to 2019.  (Jewelry was too, but that wasn't performing well even before last year.)

Sure, CD-19 probably played a role in apparel's slump with people staying at home more, at least in quarters 2-4, but issues with sizing consistency, fabric quality (thin material, so much polyester, etc), and that even though they have a bunch of brands, the clothing is tending to look like variations on the same theme don't help.  Oh, and the prices.

Another thing that may have hurt clothing sales last year:  Where a lot of it is made, and people refusing to buy products coming from there.  I see it all the time on product pages that if the origin is listed as "Imported" there will very likely be at least one person asking in the Q&A section where exactly it's coming from.  Problem is, if Q quit selling items that come from there they'd have a lot of airtime to fill across all product categories.

To add to the above, here's how the QxH product categories fared sales-wise last year in comparison to 2019, from worst to the less bad. 

Apparel:  Down every quarter and for the year

Jewelry:  Same as Apparel

Beauty:  Down in the 1st quarter, up in the 2nd, down in the 3rd and 4th, and down for the year

Electronics:  Same as Beauty

Accessories:  Down in the 1st and 2nd quarters, up in the 3rd and 4th, and up for the year

Home:  Down in the 1st quarter, up the other 3 quarters and up for the year

Financially, they did well overall but... Every product category was down in the 1st quarter.  Only 2 categories were overall bright spots (Accessories and Home), 2 more categories definitely have cause for concern (Beauty and Electronics) and 2 (Apparel and Jewelry) need intervention.  I suspect, though, that with Jewelry HSN will carry on as they are but Q will just continue doing what they have been doing, and that's showing it less.  Show it less, less sales, so show it even less, you get the picture.

I’m watching Jayne now & she’s put together nicely. Black & White animal print top & black pants. I think it helps that she is tall and not rail thin. She’s kind of normal looking. She’s not trying to be all wacko like Shawn, Kirstin & Jen. A lot of clearance prices but even then it ain’t super cheap. I’m just browsing today and seeing if they have any cheap summer tops.

Quite a bit of the time if a show has two cohosts they are working on the same set; they just do the camera work in such a way that you can't tell, or at least they hope you can't tell.  Probably the best example of this is Gourmet Holiday.  I suspect it is primarily to save costs and keep on-set staffing down.

It’s not a cost issue. It’s a Covid-19 issue. No host have been on the same set or in close proximity to each other for a year. That’s what I meant when I’ll be glad when Jayne & Pat can be together again. It’s the same for the celebrity’s and OAP. They haven’t been in studio for a year either. Zoom is the word.

I also recall a Q vendor, I believe it was Lori G., saying that when they were doing planning for what she was going to bring in for 2021 that the Q buyers told her they were going to order less quantities of her items.  I wonder if that applies to most or all of the other clothing vendors, and between that and TSVs showing up online early that we're seeing more limited quantities at the start of the TSV day.

Exactly my thought.  Easier to sell out when you start with far fewer than "the good ol' days".

Perhaps I need to borrow some of Diva's selling techniques... 🤔
