I tend to agree with you!  Kim is gracious with every host,  but they don’t have the best connection.

Loco looks even worse with all those tops. I think this one might make it into the fashion poll.

She truly looks like an authentic bag lady.  No offense to bag ladies since they usually look like this by necessity.

Lori has a huge walk-in closet where she can park her clothing and doesn't need to wear all of those major layers at once.  It just looks piled on and heavy.

More eccentric than eclectic, IMO.

Now that things are opening up and getting back to semi-normal, I imagine the hosts are clamoring to be the first to go on their "well-deserved" vacations.

TPTB should require that each writes an essay on why they should be first to go, or have a race to the signup sheet.

Picturing some gold gladiator stilettos sprinting to the front of the line, stepping on someone else's Lexi Marigolds.  Hoping Officer Jayne will write a ticket (for poor taste in fashion and speeding while intoxicated).

Others who enjoy rehashing the journeys that make them choke up on cue will choose the essay option, trying to get extra credit by adding vision boards with pasted on bikini pics or diamond tennis bracelets to their submissions.

Speaking of the Joan Rivers collection I do wonder how many of these designs she would have signed off. She was a very classy lady. Yes, she mass produced costume jewellery (which she joked was made by children in sweatshops “tiny fingers set tiny stones”) but her aesthetic was more Jackie O than LoGo. I hope Dangle is keeping true to her…

Burly, I had those exact same thoughts as I was watching this afternoon and honestly while I think there are a few things that Joan may have sanctioned, the bulk of the shmattas were definitely not something that I could see her wearing or selling....

Very surprised at David because when she first passed away he was very true to her but now I think he’s gone off half cocked ....but of course that’s just my opinion

You know, I want to like this dress - I really do. It’s probably cool and comfortable. But it just screams prison matron. Not a look I necessarily want to adopt.

I just read an interesting article in the Washington Post titled, “When the ‘Mean Girl’ is a Woman: How to Deal with an Adult Bully.” This paragraph caught my eye:

The most frequent form of relational aggression [Dellasega’s preferred term for bullying] is the ‘take-back.’ It’s saying something insensitive and unkind and then, when you realize it didn’t go over well, you say, ‘I was just kidding.’ ”

I’d say this describes our bully “relational aggressor” Caro to a tee!

It’s all about $$$. 

Joan was a very smart businesswoman.

Although she was ranked as a world class fashion icon, Joan knew how to roll with the times and cater to her audience and customers. Her time (and win) on The Apprentice showed her eating shit on the regular to keep everyone’s feathers unruffled and her progress under everyone’s radar.

David Dangle has a tough line to walk in not straying too far from Joan’s vision but keep up with fashion’s vagaries and make sure the bucks keep rolling in.

True.

Joan was all about classic simplicity and tasteful iconic brands.

Black columns topped with drop-dead jackets. Tweeds. Twills. Money.

Caro continues to play the fool with Nutsy, and the fact that viewers egg her on to continue to do it confounds me. Some woman is sending her US flags for Nutsy to play with.  I bet they send her lots of crap for that stuffed yutz. I had to turn off the Q because she’s constantly talking in her squirrel voice.  And of course, she looks like a schlubb, but thinks she looks like Christie Brinkley.

I have a thing for older game shows so I like to livestream the Buzzr channel a lot. The shows they're airing now are from the 70's and 80's which makes it easier to remember what it was like before extremely whitened teeth became so normalized. I've even caught myself looking at some of the contestants along with celebs' thinking how their not blinding white normal looking teeth look kind of dingy. Then I have to remind myself of what peoples teeth looked like before teeth whitening became commonplace and the methods to do so became so readily available.

Caro has a highly over-developed concept of self-confidence. (😅If there is such a thing.)  When she preens and prances, she’s almost convincing.

Carolyn mentioned she visited Paris "I was there only once but it was the highlight of my life" and said she has two rooms in her house devoted to Gallic items -- "Gary, I have a Degas print on one wall -- you know who he is, right?" plus mentioning other French styled items.  

This really surprised me -- since she likes to present herself as your typical down-to-earth Midwesterner from Indiana -- until I remembered that she spent 20 years in "latte/white wine sipping" (my quotes, lol) Southern California and has mentioned a few times that she used to spend a lot of money on designer clothes and is obsessed with the British royal family.

But no matter what, still a mean girl.

Despite Carolyn’s present stage persona as a down-home gal, you have to keep in mind she was once a hard-edged heavy metal DJ chick tuned into the crazy LA music scene and all of the excesses. Back in the day, Jim Morrison, Robert Plant, Alice Cooper, Lou Gramm, Gene Simmons, et al; their bands, their roadies, their groupies, their management and the DJs playing and promoting them were far from angelic with big egos. Irreverence and pushing the envelope are elements of Carolyn’s history.

I’ll bet she has great stories to tell.


***full disclosure***

I’m retired. I have quite a few replacement parts. But I still have gas in my tank.

Is it wrong of me to convince Led Zeppelin to reconsider going back on tour and me be their road manager?

Ha!  Good points, @BenchWarmer!  And I believe it was @Booney who conjectured that Carolyn's past as a D.J. surrounded by a lot of macho-but-juvenile (correct me if I'm wrong about this, @Booney) men always coarshly joshing around, contributes to her QVC persona. 

And you will notice that Gracie is the only female who does that "dolphin" laugh along with Rick and David.  Can you imagine any other woman there letting out that sound?  I think not.

But apparently Carolyn is more sophisticated than she appears or lets on.
