They are doing a tie in with the new movie  

will be shows tonight 

at least they were scheduled 

I wonder how they will do the tie-in? Adrianne could play the murder victim. She's looked dead for years.

LMAO!

My question was going to be if we got to vote which host we could off first?

Speaking of Iris Apfel - what the heck does Rara Avis mean??

Not a regular watcher of her stuff.

So am watching the Murder on the Orient Express show - so what does a bra have to do with anything???  Were the cast all wearing this Rhonda Shear number.  Duh....

Speaking of Murder on the Orient Express and Judi Dench in particular.  The first thing I think of now when I see her name is I wonder how she's doing with her macular degeneration.   I feel sorry that she has that.

HSN's Today's Special is the Giannios 5 lbs Assorted Chocolates for $49.95. They look delicious but I question the timing of this TS. I've still got Halloween chocolate bars. I don't want to think about buying expensive chocolates right now. Waiting 2 weeks or more would have been a better idea, IMO.

Mmmm....chocolates.

BUT, my sister won't let the kidlets eat the candy that they got trick or treating, they can only eat the candy she bought (~ insert your own eyeroll here~), so guess who scored all their Halloween haul? ???

I need more chocolate like I need a hole in my head.

HSN is selling some sort of immersion blender by a company named SMEG. It costs $179.95.  I looked them up, the letters stand for "Smalterie Metallurgiche Emiliane Guastalla". They are an Italian company with a high emphasis on design and technology.

Yes, but according to the Q promo I heard, there's ONLY SEVEN WEEKS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!!

Speaking of advertising, remember an earlier conversation in the thread on how the Q should advertise on other channels if they want to attract a different demographic? HSN seems to have realized that; I've been seeing advertisements for them on MSNBC. I think it's specific to my cable system (Optimum) since it included the channel number.

???????????????

HSN:

554-273

Microwave glass 8-cup popcorn popper

$19.95, free shipping, flex pay available

The Giannios TS is $49.95-5lbs and 10 gift boxes.  Forget the boxes, the candy is $9.99/lb.

You can get a 6 lb. tin for $59.95, also $9.99/lb.

I don't need the boxes, I'll take the 6 lbs for myself.... and I order them early Dec last year.

HSN has free shipping on all kitchen and food today. I wish David's Cookies had stayed there since their stuff would go on sale at good prices. Probably why they left though.

Every year there was a Today's Special of crumb cakes and brownies. I got them 2 or 3 years ago and would look for them closer to Christmas. Was that a David's Cookies item? I was surprised to see they jumped over to QVC.

Those were David's Cookies items. Those crumb cakes taste good. I haven't had them in a couple years either though. The desert stuff now left on the Ho doesn't look that good. I can't comment on the rum cakes since I've never had one. I remember people commenting in our previous threads that they liked them though. I keep getting emails from the David's cookies website after purchasing something from them directly a few years ago during a sale they had. They are offering $5 off orders this month.

For Christmas I would send my family the David's tower of boxes: brownies,  assorted cookies, crumb cakes...Very well received

We also love the Jimmy the Baker crumbcakes at QVC.  Always very fresh and moist.

Thanks for the link. I liked the crumb cakes. The brownies were okay. I really liked the presentation of everything in the Christmas boxes. I'd gift some and keep some. With these type items it's not the cost of the gift but everyone likes getting a little dessert something in pretty wrapping. I used to look for HSN to have that TS during the holidays. It was around $20, iirc. The crumb cakes and stuff were worth it to me. HSN now has chocolate covered pretzels that cost $24.95. I'm going to check out the David's Cookies link instead of spending with HSN.

ETA: shopping that link, D.Cookies are a bit pricey. 12 brownie pieces is $39.95. I need to get out my apron and bake stuff myself.

Where to begin on this screenshot? The “world launch” of Joy Mangano’s new book, “Inventing JOY”? The question of why Joy’s head looks too small for her body? Or, the big shock - what has happened to Amy Morrison’s hair??

I used to envy her hair - it always looked so good. Now it’s too long, IMO, but it also looks like straw. Her makeup is very harsh here too. I always thought she was so cute, but I’m not liking her look her at all.

It could be extensions, but if it is, she got ripped off because the extensions look like straw too.

the color is fine, but if you watch her, they don't move like real hair,

she should go back to her real hair,

she is cute and enthusiastic, no need for the fake hair

If you're talking about ads for the shop channels, so have I.  MSNBC seems to run a lot of them for HSN, maybe not as much for Q.

She looks so much younger in the Before picture. She seems to be doing her eye makeup with a heavier hand now if you compare it to the After pic from 2013.

I was surprised when Geoff left, but maybe it was on good terms.  He posted pics of his family in the studio on his last day..He seemed like a rising star there,  as they paired him with Colleen for shows, which usually means they like you... .

I'm not unhappy over that Geoff leaving because I never cared for him.  Not a big time watcher of HSN so I'm only now just finding out what his name was.  Oh well, c'est la vie and toodle-oooo to you.

I have never seen that guy before in my life... where the heck have I been???

Well, they're not combining the channels, so the on-air personnel should be safer than those in management.

The before pic is so much cuter.....and younger.  Before looks like a college kid.  After one looks like a hardened shop channel host.
