I don't either, but I have seen the movie. Her comment was incredibly offensive and disgusting.

Not only does it make no difference, it actually turns me off. I want to see products presented professionally, not families, stupid questions of the day or other ridiculous time fillers. 

Wishing twirling fruit salad would knock off the dead family stories. Creepy. Crappy. Click-worthy.

Jilly B did another live show on fb selling stuff (from her beach house because it was quiet).  She said it's a small business with a staff of three including her husband and she's doing this for us!

Jill: (Beaming while speaking to her social media person about seeing people's comments on her FB Live page) "Look how far little Just Jill Bauer has come!"

If you say so, Jill. 

She's always been her own horn tooter.

I hope the rest of her journey just involves selling stuff and not herself.

A pair of jeans that state “i AM HAPPY”...

I am so tired of all this self affirmation BS I could scream. 

In the mid 70s in SF Bay Area there was a radio station with call letters FOX. They started selling t-shirts with those across the chest. I remember then, thinking, if you have to display it...you ain’t “it”

I've gotten the sense that while MBR is still involved in host training and quite possibly selection (she admitted at the end of the TSV show that she was at Terri Conn's audition), the mentoring of new hosts is largely being left to others.  I recall mentions of Kerstin and Rachel being mentors in the past.

the top of the Caro's shirt is good but the lower half kind of messes it up

it does look and flatter her better than her usual D/C that just makes her look heavier than she is.

The pattern on Caro's top, and the way it (pardon me for sounding like a Q bot) hugs her curves, reminds me of a precious piece of imported fruit that requires protective netting to ensure safe travels.

Yeah, it's funny how her blah messages always get under my skin.

She's like Captain Obvious's less intelligent first mate.

Might as well have jeans embroidered with "I like pants".

Or a t-shirt that says, "I pull this shirt over my head to get it on".

She gets an "F" for effort.

And yet...still there.

What are we missing?

Not only is she doing this for us, she said even at QVC, it was never about the money.  It was always about us.

I tend not to believe that, but it's not shameful to try to make a living.  That's one of the reasons most people work.

She seemed excited about the few items she stretched into an hour of selling, and said there will slowly but surely be more. 

And I know they are near and dear to her heart, but I beg this one thing of her:  please, none of these (they chill me to the bone):

Antonella posted a new cancer update video on YouTube. She said they were starting to sail north up the coast. She said this portion of the trip could be "dangerous" because of shallow water, or something. That bothered me. If she's so sick, she should not be in a dangerous situation. Seems that either the husband or son could have rented a car and driven her to the destination, one driving her and one sailing the boat.

For her breast cancer treatment, she said the port (for the chemo) will be put in on May 21, and chemo will start on May 24. She will be staying in a hotel during the treatment, instead of on the boat, and she said this was thanks to the GoFundMe contributions. (She didn't say whether husband and adult son will be staying in the hotel too.) She said the closer this treatment gets, the more frightened she is. She's trying to visualize the chemo as Pac-Man, gobbling up all the cancer cells.

She cut her hair herself, and joked that it looked "moppy."  She expressed frustration that her doctors said she could not drink any alcohol all summer. She wants to eat a lot of blue crabs before her chemo starts, because she's heard chemo affects your taste buds and she wants to enjoy the crabs while she can.

Her tongue looks white as chalk. I assume this is a sign of her illness.

The one we can't mentioned offered her home for her to stay. She said no, I guess she'll probably have her husband and a son with her. I don't think they even have a car!?! I don't think she could live on a boat going through chemo. She'll need something that doesn't rock. Hence the go fund me account. jmo🤷🏼‍♀️

Debbie:  "You guys, this is high fashion."

Looked more like an outfit for someone wishing to camouflage herself as various flora and fruit while visiting a tropical botanical garden.

And here is the high fashion look, head to toe, in all of its colorful glory:
