That's the rep for Vita Liberata, a self tanner

Haven't seen it offered on QVC for a couple of years.  I've used it for years and years and was surprised when it was offered on QVC.

And then, of course, QVC ran it into the ground, as they always do, by showing it non-stop, every day of the week (at least it felt like that!).

Someone mentioned lightbulbs.  Sooooo......

How many QVC hosts does it take to change a light bulb?

4.

Shawn to order the new one on the app while on air.

Amy to open the box when it arrives.

David to get on a Little Giant ladder.

Jane to point at him and shout "THAT COULD HAVE BEEN ME UP THERE!"

Apologies.

You're not kidding. 

She was looking like a shiny Barbie doll:  pretty, but plastic.

This show and the last time I saw her, she was wearing her hair in a severe ponytail, probably to show off fresh Botox injections.

Reminds me of Rachel and Connie Craig Carrol who have very high foreheads, but insist on displaying them like freshly paved roads instead of utilizing a wisp of hair or two for a bit of coverage.

Please tell me someone else saw Jane trying to prove her youthful, athletic prowess (and, officially, the traction of Muk Luks cabin socks) by running across the studio and up the stairs, cheered on by Courtney.

This was after she said she was so freakin' excited about an air fryer coming up.

Maybe later they can put on their saddle shoes and grab a milkshake at the hop.

Uh oh, Courtney is going on a vacation? So, here’s my prediction.

She wants to knock back her hairline. Clean it up and be able to execute more styles like the one she’s sporting tonight.

its really very sad to me.  she was a beautiful girl.  now looks 100% fake.  we think people do this because they are vain but could be just the opposite.  instead of becoming MORE beautiful, many think this is becoming beautiful.  its not.  i feel bad for her, dont try to fit in, be your own personal beauty.  be so beautiful inside and out without the surgery and let that be your statement. we all have our own beauty.     (sorry so serious here )

Courtney has been at the Q six years?

She said she started there at 27, and I believe she is 33.

Doesn't seem like that long.

Her counterpart during the Christmas shows just said she's been there 15 years.

Now that is just criminal.

Aww, I watched some of Jane and Courtney tonight tonight and I didn’t think it was that bad.  Court sort of caters to JRT as a “senior” host and lets it ride.  She goes along. And JRT, bless her heart, does her best to be current.

I mean, I muted at times for items like electronics that I don’t care about, but I think they are trying to make it work. 😁

Tuned into ITKWM on Q2, and Mary was sitting in a chair, looking like it was storytime or that she was giving a fireside chat, with a remotely located Brittany Rastelli, selling crab cakes.

I assumed correctly that she was deep into a long show (third of four hours) and needed to set a spell.

Don't think I've ever seen David do the same.

Perhaps he is afraid he will pop a button or be unable to get up.

Mary, for all intents, etc., is probably one of the better hosts on the Q. She’s smart, well prepared, knowledgeable and professionally dressed…and, seems genuinely liked by vendors as well as team associates. But that lisp🤦‍♀️
I give her credit for having achieved as much in her career in media despite it, but I have to watch on mute because it is so distracting…to me. 🤷‍♀️

Don't forget it is also a way of Q doing the show on the cheap.  Park her in a chair and only one camera is needed.  Less cameras during every demo + less food displays/demos needed on set = less money spent on staff costs.  This is not the first ITKWM in which her frequently sitting down is a regular feature.

Edit to add that with stationary cameras they're all going to be running but someone in the control room can switch among them and depending on the quality of the cameras also control the cameras themselves (ie. zoom in/out, move them from side to side) .  I don't know if Q's boom cameras need individual operators to move the camera around, but if they do sticking to the stationary ones makes sense $$-wise.

My wife has them all over the house. I was running to Costco once a month just to stock up on batteries. Not to sound crazy, but I don't think batteries last as long as they used to.

I wasn’t paying a lot of attention but at one point I looked up and saw Brit stuffing a hundred dollars worth of crab cakes into a casserole pan. If that’s the side dish what are the Rastelli’s having to go with it, one wonders.

I think she said she was making a dip with it, for guests or hanging out at home.

The guests must come for the expensive seafood because she is a snore.

Also, she, like Stepford Wife Epps, seems to only use a toaster oven for cooking, or so she says.

Those little ovens must be made in the same factory that manufactured the Mary Poppins carpetbag, because no way can you cook for an entire big family using only one of those in real life.

I clicked on and saw the duo of David and  Rick.

I like Rick, but all I can think about is Crazy Eddie whose prices are INSANE, when I see and hear him going crazy  about a fan/ heater, to the point that in need to turn down the volume to tolerate him ! 
And wow - wtf is happening to David ? He’s always been big, but he has gained so much weight that his face is also massive !
 

He just looks so unhealthy and it’s actually sad.

Is it because he can finally sample food on the air again ?  Do the hosts get eat to rest the leftover food?

Did he not look a bit smaller when he was unable to eat on the air ? Lately he just seems bigger every week!

I actually clicked on his coffee talk chat last week, he seems to obsess about food and talk about it quite a bit . It’s actually gross listening to him getting so excited about food .  I wonder if someday he realize he has a major problem with food .

My first thought was "Why is David on main Q on a Saturday?" since I know he's appeared occasionally on Q2 on Saturdays but not on the main channel.

My second thought was, "Oh yeah, the 3rd Quarter ends on Thursday."

Baby Blabby (Ali):

Every other sentence is about her or her family. 

She seems to play "This is Your Life, Ali Carr" every time I see her.

Gee, wonder what ensemble he’ll choose:

Plaid shirt with burgundy sweater vest … or, solid dark shirt (no visible perspiration stains) with black sweater vest. Either choice goes well with BigBoy jeans, don’t you think?

DV’s absence was explained with a cursory “David’s having a day off” at the start of the show”. That was it. No Mary-style pandering with the VWDV crap. Good for you Alberti. Now we’re 90 minutes in and DV hasn’t been mentioned again. The old lady brigade are probably jamming WestChester Hospital with enquiries.

Elise said she moved a few weeks ago (and hurt her foot in the process).

I wonder if Guapo has moved to PA.

This could affect her romance writing.

Instead of jetting off for a weekend rendezvous to Miami, filled with clubbing and beach basking, it will be milk and bread runs to Wegmans and dog food pickups at PetSmart.

She mentioned him a few days ago during a Prive Revaux presentation.

Anything can happen in a few days, though.

I find the heart she puts over his face funny since her writings about him invade his privacy anyway.

Elise is 40 yrs old too.  The last I read her and Guapo's long distance relationship survived the pandemic lockdown. Wonder if she bought a stone wall McMansion now like many of her cohosts. She used to use her apartment living as part of her sale spiel with many products.

Alberti's show, believe it or not, is more relaxed and low key than David's (to me.)

No fretting over color sellouts, no how many did I sell during my show, no asking the social media secretary how many fans are loving my show.....

And no dancing!  I forgot to mention no dancing!

And a TT pot color just sold out (at least for now, K-50815) so he took the one sitting on the top stove display and put it underneath the counter instead of handing it off to someone, and they got the other one off the lower display while the camera was focused on him.

Tapping colors, dancing in circles, and rolling your eyes can take such a toll on a person that a WDV just doesn't fix.

David is dramatic which is annoying , so the lack of drama is refreshing .

If David retired tomorrow, as much as there would be people clamoring for Carolyn or Jane T. or MBR to take over on Sundays Q would be better off going younger and with someone who could host it for years to come, as in likely Candidate #1 Mary or Alberti.  Wednesdays, though, I could see Jane making a run for that timeslot unless they have one person take over both shows or they get rid of the Wednesday show entirely. 

Not to say that there aren't other hosts who wouldn't be qualified to host it on a full-time basis but there are very likely some who have no interest in it for reasons such as scheduling, not to mention those for which the show would be like fitting a square peg in a round hole.
