OMG can't somebody or something fix it and make Kerstank's eyeballs stay still?  They're in constant shifty motion. It reminds of a wall clock from years ago that was a black cat whose tail & eyeballs moved left right left right as the seconds ticked away.

I wonder if she takes some sorts of pills, supplements, to ramp up her metabolism and it makes her shifty eyed.

So shifty eyes is called Nystagmus. It has many causes.

"Nystagmus is a vision condition in which the eyes make repetitive, uncontrolled movements. These movements often result in reduced vision and depth perception and can affect balance and coordination. These involuntary eye movements can occur from side to side, up and down, or in a circular pattern."

A former roommate gave that exact same "retro" clock to me for my birthday when I lived in Chicago.  

You describe the eyes perfectly, lol.

Is she dressed for Halloween??  I gasped out loud when I saw this picture, she has changed so much since she first started on the Q....she looks like a lion.

She looks old and frail in that picture. How old is she? Around 70, or 70+?

Yes, also drinking alcohol can cause this, and police check for it during road sobriety tests. In Pennsylvania and least.

ahahahahahahah I find her eyes VERY disturbing too. as if she CANNOT keep them on the camera

it does feel to me as if she doesn't want to look the viewer "in the eye" but i think it has to be some condition...

i knew a guy in high school who had some form of partial blindness and his eyes shifted that way...

The outfit really isn't all that bad. I think she' just wearing the wrong shoes with it.

 

The cat clock is still available. Amazon has it in several colors. https://www.amazon.com/Kit-Cat-Klock-Gentlemen-Original/dp/B0019IBD3U/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_201_t_0?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=3JBMGPJFT4NT6D5QW302

QVC should sell this clock and let David present it. It comes in 20 colors. Think of all the fun he'd have tapping the colors!

@SnowDazed they are such cute clocks! My aunt had one, I was about  9 when I first saw it and I loved it.

I missed this whole day of Q but saw that crappy Plexiderm they must have a million to sell or more of that sheet, that was with Amy and then saw Curtis with the pans I like but they are not the same as before and added on a mini one to jack up the price.

Let the fun begin!

@letusprocrastinate I noticed that too with Kerstin competing.

A keen observer can notice the Kerstin dynamics as she tries so damn hard to not make it known that in reality she really wants to claw Josie's eyes right out of her head!!

Jill just pretends.

Why don't they have a checkpoint after getting dressed and before exiting to the camera?.

Jill looks dowdy and matronly - and there's absolutely no need for that. Her shape can't be worse than say mine, for example, and even I know that dressing like a black hole doesn't make one's body look thinner.

I see Courtney has gotten the 6-9 shift. That's actually outside the graveyard hours. Is this something to do with the change back to standard time or have they dug her out of the graveyard lol...I'm going to assume it's just to do with the extra hour.  Her face is looking disturbingly plastic this morning. I have to be honest and admit her face sometimes bothers me and not in the way you might think. It's the fakeness that bothers me, makes her appear vain and I feel as if I'm unable to see the "real" person. In that old college news vid her face did appear a lot more sincere and less vain ( back when she had her real features and less makeup).

@Day2Day these 2 were such polar opposites in that presentation... bat wing lol chiffon top was really a mess.

Maybe she thinks that since she has hit the big 50 as she mentioned so much we all got sick, she feels she's old and does indeed look dowdy. A shame really since she has beautiful skin. A little more youthful attire would go far with her but then she does act like a school teacher and I sooo hate that

I think she doesn't GAF about how she dresses on air, she has said before shes very casual IRL, but this is the job you have and should dress accordingly.  She has access to great stores, it's not important to her

I think you're spot on. She doesn't care when on Q.  She needs someone at Q to help her it's a very easy concept but Q doesn't seem to care wtf they walk out in. It's merely 3 hours for Gods sakes. Q should hire someone a professional to lay out something for her lol.   With Q being such a large company w/dressing rooms and all you'd think they would get her a personal or shared dressing assistant since others need it too.

As for myself if I have trouble with dressing at times since I really have not many affairs to attend it's tough to figure out what goes with what. I have so much stuff but get like ADD when it comes to dressier events.

Oh yeah.. the necklace does nt belong on there helooooo! Never heard of GAF. Good acronym.

No, unfortunately having healthy "teeth" starts early and most people simply don't brush their teeth enough . That's pretty short and to the point. Obviously there's much more to it, but having a healthy oral cavity/teeth should be part of any decent health insurance plan in this country in this day and age.
