Did Jen take a crimping iron to her hair? Yikes. She was presenting something the other day, clothing maybe. They zoomed in on the ends of her hair. She had a lot of split-ends. Time for a trim Jen.

Every time I see the Yonanas presentation I think of iconic America’s Next Top Model winner Yoanna

Yoanna is an OAP for something. I saw her about a week ago. She's blonde now, still looks great.

What is he selling that everyone's hair looks like crap! Jen's looks terrible, and she looked bored listening to him rambling on. He looks like he puts black shoe polish in his beard way to dark!

Agreed, @Elle820.  Couldn't hide her boredom.

She surprised me when she rudely interrupted him mid-sentence to say how great one of the models looked.

Jen:  "Sorry for interrupting".  But she didn't seem to be.

He is headed into cartoon character territory with his appearance.

He should have styled Jen’s hair like he did his models — hot rollers, blow out, etc.

On her social media, she said (during the past two weeks?) she had six inches cut off her hair. With such a fresh trim, she shouldn't be getting split ends yet. Wonder what she's using on her hair, that could have damaged it so rapidly?

What's causing her hair to get damaged is probably a flat iron.  It's what most people are using today to get that super straight hair Jenn was sporting for the TSV.  It's also how to get sort of the wavier look on longer hair that hosts like Courtney and also Jenn have had.

They work well...but I find it can really damage your hair if you don't use a protective spray or have a "safer" flat iron.  Even then, particularly if you color your hair, you could leave your hair vulnerable to damage.

This kitchen set is a disaster. 

It's cluttered and claustrophobic. 

David stumbles and bumbles and waddles from one inane location to another.

It was smoother, cleaner and more professional when the set ups were merely wheeled in and out.

A moron came up with this (in my opinion. )  A complete failure. 

JMO but I think that setup was done intentionally to ensure the hosts do as little "cooking" as possible when they're using it.  It also makes me wonder how long it's going to be before they have hosts and OAPs standing next to each other while the OAP is cooking, since that set is not conducive to that either.

The other two new Q hosts, Vanessa and Rosina, will be starting to co-host Q2 programs next week (week of the 17th).  And looking ahead into June, it also appears Julia will be doing nights 2-3 times a week on main Q and the sidekick job on ITKWD, but nothing regularly scheduled on Q2.

It was a set of stationery with inspirational messages and separate cards a giver could include.  It would have to be a deliberate choice by the giver to gift one.  Personally, I'd be careful in making sure the recipient would be OK with it.

Although you can tell by the link they have a stationary/stationery issue at Q.

Laura Slatkin showed up on Friday Night Beauty without her signature hairdo.

I’ve wondered if Laura’s pouf is a wiglet or pin-on hairpiece. It’s hard to imagine her hair in this pic blowing out to the *volume and density she’s usually sporting.

*OTOH, perhaps Tweaked By Nature guy volumizes her to lemon meringue pie heights

**anyone remember when TBN guy had his first company he would routinely hold up a jar of Brazilian mud goop, giving credit to his then wife’s grandmother who lived in the Brazilian jungle? Today’s version is that he discovered the magic stuff and formulates it in labs

Isaac's enthusiasm on a gold top:

"Amber Alert!"

 

This and his laughing hysterically whenever he talks about how his cat died are the two out of three strikes that I need to totally click him off when he appears on QVC (honestly, I really only needed the cat one).

Besides, I think most of his clothes are dreck.

Tim Gunn on Isaac:

"In the book ("Golden Rules"), Gunn takes on designer Isaac Mizrahi, calling him a spoiled snob. He explained to the Daily News, 'Oh, please, I was so kind to him. I mean, I wouldn't have the words to describe some of the more abhorrent behavior. He really is a terrible, terrible, terrible person.'"

"Gunn does not regret calling designer Isaac Mizrahi “one of the world’s biggest divas.” And with a narrowed eye and raised eyebrow he makes clear he could have said much worse.

“This is merely the tip of the iceberg,” Gunn said.

But he’s not planning a follow-up. 'I’ve gone as far as fits taste.'"

I've watched many seasons of Project Runway with Tim Gunn. Also watched Isaac M being a judge on the fashion program he was on. I'm going to side with Tim on the "spoiled snob" issue.

Using the Amber Alert in relation to clothing is almost as bad as the other genius QVC vendor that used Sophie's Choice to describe the dilemna of picking one color over the other of her rags.

Maybe they are just ignorant, have a rotten sense of humor, or are simply total a-holes.

None are attractive qualities, IMO.

That's a good way to look at it. Everyone has flaws. That doesn't mean I have to cancel them from my viewing list. I still watch some of Isaac's shows on the Q. 

Having said that, I choose to NOT watch Lisa Rinna. I don't want to give her a moment of my time.

I'd be offended. I'm shopping for secular products, not for spiritual assistance. If I wanted Bible merchandise, I'd go directly to one of the websites that specializes in those products.

It's very presumptuous of CCB to do this. She has no clue what religious beliefs are held by the people who order her QVC products. Or if they are even religious at all, for that matter.

Even JTV doesn't send out religious literature with the Christian religion-oriented items they sell: crosses, prayer boxes (little sterling boxes, like lockets, with some loose gemstones inside), and things like necklaces and bracelets engraved with the words "blessed," "faith," etc. Two of their hosts, sisters Wendy and Heidi Williams, often speak of their Christian religion during their shows, but they don't do it in a pushy way. In past years when Michael Paolercio of Michael Anthony jewelry (Anthony is his younger brother) did a lot of gold shows on HSN, he sold a lot of Catholic-themed religious jewelry. He spoke about his religion a lot, but he didn't proselytize to the customers either.

Wondering why Q thinks it necessary to bring hosts’ families into show themes. Does it make a difference to you, as consumers, whether you hear the hosts’ family history and see their family photos? Isn’t Jane Treacy’s family history and 8mm films enough for one channel?

Please remember to keep the discussions about the host(s) and not your fellow members.  If you see something you believe breaks a site/forum rule, report it and then ignore it.  Thanks.
