Maybe it’s just my iPhone screen but his skin tone/color looks so off almost dead & dry looking,more so his lip color. Nothing about this photo would impress me enough to go buy his products. It’s so obvious looking at him that these “results” are from a Doctor & not from his Serums.  

I don’t care how much you spend on face lifts,Botox etc. At some point we all end up looking old. You can tighten your skin & plump it full of crap but you will never have the same young face you had in your 20s,30s,40s.  It’s the cycle of life.

Honeybell, Schmoneybell!

I enjoy Natalie's delicious, 100 per cent Florida orange juice that I get at my local Publix every week.

I ordered them a few years ago and asked for a refund, most of them were dry and just not good.

Drinking game - take a swig every time David says “extraordinary.” Good grief, I’ve lost count. He was selling a copper pot set earlier, and must have said “extraordinary” 25 times. Now, everything about Honeybells is “extraordinary.” It’s also an “extraordinary day.”

Why can't people just say they have a wide calf?! I wear wide calf boots. My legs aren't fat but the aren't "athletic" either. I just have large calf muscles that are NOT the result of any sort of athletics. Bodies are all different. Let's embrace them and not have to excuse ourselves for not being a runway model.

I call mine toddler calves. Idk how my muscles are. I'm a pear and I do have a strong lower half ( judging by the exercises i can do lol) but I can't see anything resembling muscle in my calves. They are just chubby.

This woman Mimi G ( she makes her own clothes) has large chubby AND heavily muscled calves which I kind of wish mine were like ( not as big as hers but to at least have visible muscle)

Hers look overdeveloped but I'd like a little muscle like this... I just don't understand how she managed to get her muscles to show when she obv has a lot of chub on her ( not calling her fat).... I saw a workout vid she did and she does do actual leg workouts so maybe she just works them very hard,

Kerstin has slightly chunky calves and good muscle too

if anyone knows what exercise produces that ball of muscle let me know! LOL

Not to brag (hahahahahahhhhh!), but I have good calves and I am a fluffy Apple shape.  (Less fluffy than last year, though.). In my family's case, it is hereditary.  Thanks, Mom!

Apples do often have good legs, it's just the middle that's an issue. But at least you can wear skirts and look great. I do like my legs ( they're shapely at least) but I don't feel they look nice w/out hosiery partly due to my big old knees lol. I not only have toddler calves but I have the nerve to have large unsightly knees lol. But hey, I have a 26-27 inch waist. Every body type has it's goods and bads... even hourglasses... they can be well balanced but have very hefty upper arms.

I had a customer in the late 90's who worked at, of all things, a sports management company - the one that had some really huge golf, basketball and tennis stars.  When I was called in to him, let's just say his name was John Doe, I showed up and to my surprise, John Doe was wearing a dress and introduced herself as Jane Doe.  Her manager was there, and kept referring to her as John and it was the most uncomfortable thing I'd ever been a part of.  I had to meet with her the following week and I called my dad, who was a psychiatrist and worked for a time at Hopkins in their gender reassignment department....I asked him what I should do, what I should call her.  He said be honest with her, ask her what she wants to be called.   I did that at the beginning of the meeting and what ensued was a 1/2 hour discussion about what she was going through and had been going through her entire life.  I'll never forget her saying this to me  - she said "Do people think this is something I chose?  If there was any way to spare myself this pain, don't they think I'd have done it?"  It was excruciatingly sad and frustrating....and this was at a time when you didn't see a lot of trans people, so it wasn't accepted - especially at a sports management company.

I often think about her and what she's doing - she was eventually fired, given the reason that it was too uncomfortable for their clients.  Can you believe that?

She looks like she's standing in the wind. Those two women seems like they are three sheets to the wind every time they are on air. I wonder if their contract will be renewed. You can find similar products for a lot less on-line or at ikea.

I think Suzanne needs to get a new hairstyle, IMO it looks ridiculous at her age.  Also she sounds like she has dentures.

Kerstin and Suzanne on air now, oh my. Four minutes into the show Suzanne gave Kerstin the side-eye-of-death look for interrupting her. Suck it up, Suzanne. Kerstin bulldozes over everyone. 

If anyone missed it, Suzanne wants everyone to know she's 72. 

Suz wants to tell us about our colons. Kerstin blurted out that she had her heinie sucked out. What!?! She had that done before her wedding. Probably to help her fit in her bridal gown. I'll try to curb my enthusiasm.

IMHO, in that photo above, Dimitri looks like he's 72 azzz well. Not that there's anything wrong with being 72; I hope to be so someday myself. But I hope I won't look all My-Pillow-stuffing-faced like all these Botox/fillers people do.

Calf raises on stairs will do it. Stand on the edge of a step and let your heels hang down. Then press yourself up to tiptoe, then let your heels back down. Repeat until you get either the desired results, or the Queen Mother of calf cramps (if you are like me)!

Those sisters are the worst OAPs ever! Poor Leah, Gravuh then those two. Someone obviously told them to shut up/tone it way down/stop interrupting because they kept mentioning it but they just could NOT. The last item was so torturous, I was cringing for Leah, they were stumbling, stammering, shoving, and WAY over-explaining those stupid $20 zip boxes. Yes we get how they work!! Shove your stuff in and move on.

ETA the lock and lock back up OAP is horrible too. "We just love it" and "you don't need to worry" over and over and over. Don't know about you but I ain't worried about lock and lock. She is so awkward and cringe inducing.

I think our beautiful Brenda is married now. Because she is in her later 30's I expect a baby bump within the year ( a la Meghan Markle) since she doesn't have the luxury of waiting as she would if she was 25. I think she would look so cute preggers. I bet she'll stay skinny and just have a bump.

Now I wonder when Deanna will get married. I sound like a grandma LOLOL but i'm actually just about their age which is what makes me more curious about them. Deanna seems kind of free spirited so she may not marry at all. What a waste of genes if she doesn't have babies though! LOL

I got curious checking out RLM on The Google.

He must really like that outfit he had on today.  There's an article from Women's Wear Daily, from this past November, and guess what?  Same outfit.  He must save the polka dots for really special occasions or something!

I'm glad I did this, though.  He really does some nice things and has a storied career.

Exactly! The show will be a cavalcade of the usual qrap, bundled in two hours that are masquerading as a “new” show.

The fake banter is ridiculous. Diva, selling the TSV humidifier, says to Scott Hind, “Thanks for coming in!” Of course he’s “coming in” - he’s selling the freaking TSV and has been there all day! It makes me laugh when these hosts want us to think that they’ve “invited” vendors into their shows. Just sell the stupid products and stop with the blathering - please!
