Here’s a shocker! Blabby, who’s a charter member of the “Size Up!” club, actually admitted something was too small. She donned this Isaac jacket and it was clear she couldn’t zip it if her life depended on it. She said, “This is two sizes too small. I literally grabbed the first one on the rack.”

But wait…two sizes too small? Doesn’t she usually say she’s a small? Does that mean this jacket is an extra extra small? Sizes have become absolutely meaningless on the Q, for f**k’s sake.

No more tight dress Gina??!!

Seems Gina may be on a downward career slide. She’s also been replaced as the substitute traffic reporter on WPVI in Philly.

I heard Jane say yesterday and the day before that she was not on the schedule for Saturday but called up, insisting she must be. 

I guess it was because of Isaac and his exciting TSV.

I can imagine the scheduling person must get a lot of calls like this from her.

Jane is so obviously someone who is called a starf****r.  She desperately wants that proximity to fame to hire one of her offspring. 

Definitely explains why she always sucks up to Laurie Feltheimer.

She's desperate and pathetic and sad.  And not in a good way.

I'm really starting to appreciate Ginger. The Q is obviously not her life. She strikes me as the type to stay until she doesn't and then will just move on to the next thing.

And only for an hour.  I'm guessing Amy's 3-hour shift got changed to 2 to make room for Jane.

Or she's really PO'd that she only got 2 hours of Rose of Tralee the other day and she demanded some compensation.

I guess “Girls with Curves” translates to “wear the biggest, most shapeless thing you can find to hide your curves”? This thing looks like the 2021 version of the muu muu. Amy looks like the Head Abbess of an all-girls Catholic school in this number -

She’s looking to heaven for divine guidance here -

She said she was wearing an “extra extra extra small extra small.” I kid you not. Is this a new size category at the Q? What’s the equivalent, a negative 4?

Let me guess:

Did Amy say she had a muffin for breakfast yesterday and three ravioli for dinner, so appreciates the Dark Horseman cloak to hide it all?

She probably was thinking it, though.

Has Isaac lost his mind, or does he just babble to fill up the time? That is nothing more than a plain ordinary puffer vest.

It is also way too small. The model would never be able to get it fastened across her bosom.

Ya know, now that you mention it, Isaac really does babble. Almost without ceasing, he babbles. Even when the delay on Skype is proving to be difficult, he babbles. When the moment calls for only the host to be speaking (even unwashedhosts), Isaac is babbling.

Ali Carr is a sweet woman.

Very cute.

But she talks about her family even more than Jane.

If I measure that on the Q Annoy-o-Meter, she is right up there with The Blabbiest of All Time.

 

I'm doing more clicking off of Q and its spawn channels than ever.

I noticed hosts are giving him the Susan Graver treatment, going over colors while he babbles.

In his mind, maybe he is employing a stream of consciousness presentation style.

This might be interesting on paper, but in person, it is maddening.

One other thing that annoys me is those necklaces Isaac wears. I don't care whether he wears them -- it's that they are all from his costume jewelry collection on QVC, but it's very rare for a host to mention that the necklaces are available for sale. Once in a while they'll show the web page for whatever necklace he has on. If he wants people to order the necklaces, he should speak up during the fashion presentations. Or he could request that Shawn, Jen, and the other hosts he works with to wear a necklace on his show and give the item number.

Newbie Vanessa has, as Kathy Levine would say, a “honker” of a wedding ring set. Reminds me of the first time Joan Rivers worked with Gobby. She looked at her ring and said, “You must be the second wife…the first one NEVER gets a ring that big!”

I have to say Stacey Stauffer is clearly a much bigger person than I am because after being fired by them I’d have been tempted to tell QVC to stuff their OAP job offer right up where the sun don’t shine. 
Still, work is work I suppose and showbiz is more business than show, so I suppose she’s being very sensible. She’s a thousand times more engaging than Gingerpuss.

There are a number of kitchen/food OAP’s I’d be happy to see Stacey replace. 
Lugwig: cocky, full of herself and over exposed. 
Fleming-Epps: The Stepford Wife who’s on permanent repeat no matter what product she’s selling. 
Idina Thingy: The Marge Simpson of David’s Cookies. That voice 😖

I've bought them before at the grocery store.  They're microwaveable right in the package, so David doesn't even need to get a pot out of the cupboard unless he wants pasta to go with them. 

(IMO, they're nothing spectacular, the sauce in particular, but they do the job if you need something fast or don't want anything with too much kick to it; you can always add your own seasonings if you find it bland.)

Jacqui Stafford was shilling on Q2 alone. Aside from the tone of her voice (not the accent), she is pretty watchable. All business except the brief doggie cuddle.

Agree! It seems that most of her items are either full of glitter, or illuminated, or both.

When skimming through Items Recently on Air, I noticed that some of her items are advance order and don't ship until November 15. That is way too late for Christmas decorations. Besides, if they aren't put in the mail until Nov. 15, who knows how long it will take them to be delivered to the customers' homes? Five more days? Ten days?

If I wanted to have new Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving, I'd go shop in person at Michael's or JoAnn's or some other local store.

Perhaps because of Dan's ticker issues earlier this year he's limited in what he can taste and the amounts so he can have a happy cardiologist, which means while he can take the lead on segments Rachel has to take the lead on tastings?
