I’m thinking there are separate forums for discussing the two networks. There’s a Q forum a little further down. This one is for hosts in general.

I like that there’s a separate Lisa forum. I didn’t watch much during her Q tenure, so I mostly scroll past posts about her.

@Stacey1014 is correct.  There is a thread for QVC and a thread for HSN.  Those threads are to discuss things like.. 1) I really love the Christmas in July programming and/or 2) I wish they had more cleaning gadget shows than makeup shows etc.

I notice The Shittish was taken out for breakfast for a bagel by the Consultant.  Of course, she had a video of her chomping on it sans makeup (she actually looks better without all that troweled on crap) and wearing her Pebbles hair.

There was the usual gushing by her sycophants, but my favorite comment was, "Don't you ever wear makeup or fix your hair when you go out?"  This intelligent person was instantly jumped on.

Then she posted some bizarre video of her "flying" or something.  I'm not sure if she was in a zero gravity chamber or what.  There was some guy holding her up and she still freaked out.  Strange.

The return of Humblebragisms! I watched a few of HB’s videos from this morning, and he was in rare form. 

Selling Catawba Comfort Socks:

“Is anyone old enough to remember tube socks? Well, nobody’s foot is shaped like a tube.”

There were several color sets. The OAP showed one set with pairs of white, grey, and pink socks. HB: “That’s the ‘leave your hands off my socks’ set.”

“The socks don’t fall down. For me, that is a big, big issue.”

ECAE8247-723B-4BB8-A48F-10BFF690204F.thumb.jpeg.7d7429839bfbec2f5c46d45abe37a1f9.jpeg

Selling an electronics charging hub:

“Think about this. Building codes in America have not changed since about 1964. We have the same number of electrical outlets that we did in my parents’ day. This was way prior to the invention of cell phones, portable electronics, tablets, bluetooth speakers, ekcetera, ekcetera, ekcetera.” (Yep, that’s how he pronounces it - “ekcetra.”)

You can customize the top of the charging hub with a photo. The OAP had a picture of her daughter and cat in the top of the charging hub. HB: “I just have to ask - what kind of cat is that? That is not a normal sized cat.”

73453AC9-1E60-478E-B34C-DB58D7DCF36A.thumb.jpeg.a8a939a0c5020c29e679e7dbb5506cc2.jpeg

Selling a flashlight with Sean Pickford: 

“I asked Sean Pickford to come in this morning.” (Yeah, I’ll just bet that you set the schedule of products and OAPs...)

“It’s a gift that will be appreciated by the guys and also the ladies. But for some reason, us guys gravitate towards cool flashlights.”

About the magnet feature of the flashlight: “Sean and I, our therapy is working on cars. Man, every time I’m underneath the hood, I will drop something in the perfect spot or the perfect slot where my fat fingers can’t get in there to retrieve it.”

“Personally, I’m a big, big proponent of being prepared for virtually anything.” 

Showing the flashlight sticking directly to the car because of the magnet: “You’re not having to hold the flashlight in your armpit or your teeth.”

Carolyn was in her usual posing mode during Carolyn’s closet:

Not sure what to say about this outfit...Purple sweater over a Kathleen Kirkwood cami/lace schmatta, and burgundy suede boots? At least the boots cover the probably too short black pants length.

Those poor OAPs. CaCa was on a tear today. Especially with the boots, she CaCa-commandered the whole presentation...uhhuh, uhhuh, uhhuh..."now listen girls..." STFU

Where's Jilly Bean? WDV?

Professor Feh.

"I don't normally use this word on-air but I can tell you that their flounder has purity"

Dan:  "Hey, we're both wearing purple"

Sharon:  "No, it's called aubergine"

Lifts up her pinky while holding a cheese pretzel popper.

Does this woman know how excruciatingly, unbearably pretentious and annoying she is?

Unless Feh is on a Logo show, I normally can't watch her. Everything is a search for the perfect word - such a production. I can't watch her eat on the food shows without providing a MST3K running commentary of my own; she's too over the top.

ETA: Every time I see Carolyn posing for the monitor, I have to laugh.

Ugh oh.....I just got an email from Barefoot Dreams (please don't hate...I've bought a couple of their items, direct from them, for baby gifts - they have some darling children's items and when on sale, doubly nice!).  Anyhow......they made Oprah's Favorite Things list for 2017.  Some sort of pajama set.

  1. You know we'll hear about this when Shawn comes on.  And we'll hear it over and over!
  2. Who even cares about Oprah's Favorite Things?  I mean, isn't that sort of old school now?  Are her "things" still a "thing"?

**As we've said before, more like a disincentive to purchase if Oprah is attached!

Cathy Pedrayes is incapable of conversing in English.  Not sure that reading comes naturally to her either.  Someone should do something about that.  

Currant Jam in CathySpeak = Ker-ONT Jomb

I will be forever curious as to what qualities TPTB saw in her that compelled her hiring.

This comment slipped through, as well: "Who cares! Chomping with you mouth open. Disgusting. How old are you? 12. Grow up!!!"

Wonder if someone will be put in a timeout banned from shopping for a month...

Speaking of legends in their own minds, Carolyn told Mama Gendel she sees Ann the lingerie model staring back at her in the mirror.

I'll bet it gets brought up at the next Forum Misbehavior meeting though!  Listed in the outline as Things We Should Have Thought Of

You know it's bad when I choose to watch HSN's Dianne Gilman over Kirsten on QVC.  

I'll bet Dianne is happy that Fall/Winter has arrived, so she can wear actual turtlenecks and crew necks, and doesn't have to choke herself with yards 'n yards of polyester scarves.

I never saw patterns so busy like the tsv.  I wouldn't be caught dead in them either.  Not sure what to think of JRT in it either!

All the TSV patterns are way too busy, but this one on the Elf looks like a bullseye.

Oy vey! The OAP is stroking the fur trim on the hat like a madwoman, and Kerstin looks bizarre in the hat. The way her hands are positioned, they look like someone’s man hands grabbing her boobs from behind her.

That hat is definitely not Kerstink's friend.  She looks like a dork.  She better hope the Lobster wasn't watching.  That's something he could never un-see.

Those do look like man-hands over Kertin's boobs.  Ha!!  Very unfortunate photo (for her),  great snark value for us.

Dark haired gal.  She models Breezies bras always wearing pants that are way too low slung.  Her bellybutton skeeves me out.  And, no, she's not plus sized and looks nothing like CaCa.

This looks like one unattractive blouse on Aims - a navy pinstripe puffy shirt. It makes her look all out of proportion - big arms and shoulders, teeny-tiny waist. Not a good look. By the way, when is Clark’s Amy having that baby? I’m soooo tired of her. It seems like she’s on every other hour.

It can be hard to guess a model's age because if they're starving themselves to stay thin, that will result in a haggard looking face. Ann may be younger than she looks.
