I think Marla moved to CO to be near her son or daughter but quick to abandon NYC like many others during the pandemic.

Me too THUMPER. I really like some of her jackets and tops but I like a tunic length. I don’t like her pants at all.

I have many Birkenstock sandals, but they are all the thin 2- strapped style.  I find them a little more feminine than many Birks.   The comfort is so great.     I do NOT like their usual “thong” style.  They look thick, uncomfortable and kind of “uterus-y” looking, IMO. 😂😂

To my eye (😜) , the thong has one thick strap down the center (uterus) with the two other straps being the Fallopian tubes, I guess?!  Plus the ugly thick button fastener at the toes.  (Not female anatomy-related, just unattractive, IMO)!   😁😁😁

Some psychologist might have fun interpreting that!

Colleen has had some jade jewelry on some of her jewelry shows today.  I remember when QVC used to have a lot of jade shows.  Even bought a bracelet that I still have, although I never wear it.

My two favorite jade rings came from QVC. Celadon green Burma jade. I bought them when the  U.S. lifted the ban on imports of rubies and jade from Myanmar (formerly Burma). Retailers were quick to jump on that and order new jewelry.

HSN has some pretty jewelry in the Jade of Yesteryear line.

I love how Curtis Stone thinks his son invented the Japanese omelet pan. 🤣   We usually buy the Egg Harbor Faroe Island salmon from QVC which is a Rastelli product. We took a chance and ordered his salmon, also Faroe Island, hoping it would be just as good. It was because it turned out to be a Rastelli product. Thing is, he charges more than QVC. He slaps his name on it and it’s suddenly worth more? The pork ribeyes he was hawking today are also Rastelli as QVC sells the same product under the Rastelli name. For what it’s worth, that Faroe Island salmon is to die for. It’s one of two shopping channel foods that we always splurge and order because we can’t get them any better elsewhere. The other is the bagels from QVC. Hubs loves them. The rest of the foods are ridiculously priced. So much we see is the same fare Aldi carries.

Flipping through channels this morning and stopped at HSN because they are doing a "Spring" show all day and I need to spruce up my backyard. 

Anyway, Guy Yovan was hosting. Never paid much attention to him before but this morning he was looking cute with his shorts and tanned legs. He was very funny, too, while still staying professional.  He kept moving around all over the place and the camera crew was having a hard time keeping up with him. I think I have a little crush on Guy. 😍

I got a survey from HSN. I'm not sure if they are thinking to make it more like Q. One of the questions was something like, what do you think of when you watch QVC? What would they watch on tv? What would you talk about with them? Or similar nonsense. I roasted them good. I think my response was, dirty, sloppy, unprofessional, unprepared, drunk.

I said HSN, was professional, prepared, not drunk, etc. 😁

I think that Alyce's father passed away, noticed she missed several of her shows.

She mentioned her parents often and her father was frail;  I think they were still living in their home,  not a facility.

(Read this elsewhere but I noticed her absence yesterday.)

Agree! I always feel like he talks in circles. 

That said, I buy several of his vitamins and supplements. They are too expensive but fabulous!

Former host Anji Corley is the rep for the TS Soul Naturalizer.

She was with Professor Amos for awhile after hosting. 

Funny how they jump around into various categories.  I guess it's a talent to be able to do that.  Having been a host helps.

I have mentioned this before, but the bedazzled Prai packaging is so tacky!     Get rid of the faux “jewels” and lower the price.

I do like Prai’s neck and décolleté cream, though.

How do you even hold the jar in your hand without getting bits of cream all over the fake jewels? A plain smooth jar would have been so much better.

One of the former JTV hosts, Jana Laurin, is on HSN now as a "Guest," or what we call an OAP. I researched it but there is no information on what jewelry brand she represents. Saw her when I was channel surfing last night. She and Adam Freeman presented a couple of small tanzanite items, and the most beautiful blue topaz ring I've ever seen.

Jana's LinkedIn says "On Air Guest, HSN freelance, dates employed May 2020 - present." It says she worked for JTV for 3 years, 2 months, March 2016 - April 2019. I remember we were posting about it when she left, and we felt she'd been pushed out because she never could fit in with the clique over there.

I'm embarrassed to admit I had no idea she'd had the HSN gig for almost a whole year! Back in the days when gold jewelry was affordable, I was a heavy HSN viewer. But when the jewelry inventory dropped so much after the recession, I virtually stopped watching them. I just do a drive-by once in a while.

This is the gorgeous blue topaz ring, 738-459. I didn't know you could get topaz in that deep, vivid blue color. It looks similar to high grade aquamarine. Unfortunately it's very expensive, $1,057.25, since it's 10K gold with diamond accents. So it's not in my budget -- I just wanted to drool over it!

The product line name on HSN is Passport to Gems, so maybe that's one of the brands Jana is representing.

I wonder if Passport to Gems is an HSN house brand?

Since she says she's "HSN freelance" it sounds to me it's a "we'll call you when we need you" setup.

And I didn't know either she had gotten together with HSN.

HSN does this with fashion too.

They have guests billed as "fashion expert" or "style consultant " come on with a variety of brands, rather than be an employee of a specific line.

I can't understand why they're necessary, other than to give the host someone to talk to!

I really like my Democracy jeans, and I suspect today’s TS shorts fit the same way.  But they are soooooooo long!  I read either 11 or 13” inseam???  I need about a 7”.   Something between a Bermuda and the short-shorts.

Please don't purchase the Today's Special, the Keurig Supreme Coffeemaker.  It is a disaster waiting to happen and it did for me and thousands of people who bought this.  Please read the reviews at QVC, at Amazon and even Keurig and you'll find out how it doesn't work.  

What's wrong with it? 

  • The new pods explode creating a huge mess and once they do you can't get a clean cup of hot water.  The second time mine did it died.  Mine lasted 5 months and even though it was under a one year warranty I decided I didn't want another one because QVC where I bought it wouldn't give you your money back; only a replacement.  No thanks.  
  • Many people couldn't get it to work the first time they used it at QVC, at HSN (before they removed all the negative ads since it's a Today's Special), at Amazon, and even Keurig.  They replaced the defective machines and some that I read had it replaced 2 or 3 times.  Keurig had to have lost of money on this DUD!
  • They have a new descaling process and the first time you descale which is at 3 months you can't get the descale light to shut off.  You have to use their descaling product and it's expensive.

This product should have been recalled.  I wished I hadn't got rid of my Keurig Elite which worked for years.  I will never buy a Keurig ever again! 

Reviews at QVC:  

https://www.qvc.com/Keurig-K-Supreme-Coffee-Maker-w-Multistream-Technology.product.K405441.html?sc=PSCH&qq=mh&TZ=PST

1 review from Amazon but 7% are 1 star

1.0 out of 5 stars Stops working with no warning !!!

Reviewed in the United States on November 12, 2020

Color: K-Supreme BlackVerified Purchase

I loved the look of this Keurig....it brewed nicely, has a large water reservoir with a handle that made it easy to fill....it turns on automatically when you put in a k-cup and close it, then you choose your setting.....BUT in less than ONE month, it just stopped working.....no warning, nothing.....went to make a cup of coffee and it didn't go on.....I had purchased this one from HSN, so I thought maybe it was just defective.....sent it back, and ordered this same one from Amazon. Well, this one worked for less than ONE week !! I don't recommend this at all.....especially as a gift....I have gone through a lot of Keurig's because I am a stay at home mom and I drink ALOT of coffee, but previous machines lasted a lot longer than a week or a month !!! And the price of this one is NOT cheap....I now have the Keurig K-Elite and so far it's working fine.....my daughter has the Elite too, and she's had it for awhile, so you might want to get that one....

I’m watching Colleen hawking her Today’s Special on HSN. It’s a maxi dress. It’s okay and nothing I haven’t already seen. The funny thing to watch her in the earlier shows saying the same things all over again for her 8pm show. Can you imagine having to repeat yourself over and over to get people to buy your stuff? Of course, I doubt she had much to add in the clothing line but now I know why these host make so much. As long, as the viewer buy this crap the more they’ll be selling. That said, Colleen is miles ahead of a lot of the female host on QVC. That’s for sure. LOL!!!!

When I turned the TV on, two of the models and Colleen’s cohost all had that maxi TS knotted to the side or front!    I didn’t think that looked good, but I don’t like the hem on that dress either.

Watching one of the models, Annette, in the TS really pointed out how “fit” is so subjective.  I thought the dress she had on was too tight, hugging her abdomen too much.    She said she couldn’t get the large, so ordered a medium but she liked the fit of the large better. I’m thinking “oh she’s wearing the Medium.”  No!  She was wearing the large and thought it was a good fit!  lol

Dimitri James' adorable cat on HSN last week. He said the cat is a Daddy's girl. Shannon said her producer thought the cat was the star of the show, and they showed the cat before Dimitri started the presentation. Hey, I agree!  The cat can point at the products and Dimitri can narrate.
