I'm not looking this up on ye olde internet, but how old is Jane?  Isn't she right around 60?  60 years ago is 1961, and even if she was born in the late 50s her memory would likely be based on photos.  Just sayin'.

She’s only 57 isn’t she?

I noticed that Diva jumped on the panic buying train last night, reiterating BUY NOW because of the supply chain. My tolerance for him decreases with every viewing.

Courtney Cason posted an IG story.  She had returned from Knoxville.    

Isn't that where JTV is located?   Wonder if that is why she was in Knoxville?

Wish I could have done a screen shot of the story before it disappeared.

Susan Graver's OAP, Beth, was drinking out of a big cup that looked like it had small photos of Susan Graver's head all over it.

I wonder if Susan drinks out of a cup that has tiny pictures of Katya all over it.

No comments on Amy Stran's dissing of Isaac M's velvet floral stirrup pants last night? She's normally so positive/gushing about everything she presents, but boy! She told the audience that they should cut the stirrups off!

Also, in the hour or so that I was sort-of watching the clearance show with her, she must have changed outfits 6 times.

I went over to Q's website and a "stirrup pants" search turned up 37 items.

The last time I wore those was probably during the Reagan Administration. 

I'm not current on this stuff, but are they suddenly fashionable again or are QVC's fashion buyers reliving their childhoods?  Or both?

She seems very self conscious and annoyed lately.

Could have something to do with her announcement yesterday that she now wears a 2 instead of a 0.

Not sure if she meant in the Koolaburra joggers she was wearing or in general.

Because I'm a nice person most of the time I won't quote that chicken and dumplings pic but my first thought was whether it was something from a medical encyclopedia.  Intestines or something along those lines.

Omg, that's exactly what I thought !  Is that someone's intestines ? Then my second thought was chicken and dumplings. Now that's kind of scary. 😖

Been with the Q for years. Remember when Rick D was hired, and his teaming with Kathy L …even his engagement announcement (complete with pics of the couple on the slopes) and Kathy offering her condolences to Rick’s girl.  My point:  Rick, you’ve made your bones…and millions for the Q. STOP acting like a rookie, whose job depends on his impression with management. It’s tiresome. It’s old. It’s annoying. Give it a fucking rest.

her Classic tablet holder and utensil crock blaring out the logo “Life is short, lick the bowl” is naff AF too.  Are there no depths of market stall tat that this woman will not stoop to?

Just realized I must not know how to double quote — or my iPad’s acting up.  

I watched part of the Ali and VPH show last night and Ali didn’t bother me much, but I can see how she might come across to others.  There were times when, to me, she seemed to be giggling over the absurdity of some of the things she was saying!  
 

I remember her from Evine when she was either a “fashion expert” or host, or maybe both.

David's undelightful photo of his chicken and dumplings reminds me of something he said during a presentation about a week or two ago:

"I've been in the food business for 28 years."

But how long has he been Our Resident Foodie?

I don't remember seeing him in the kitchen until boring Bob Bowersox and his chef's uniform left QVC for good.

That wasn't 28 years ago.

And hasn't he said publicly that after Bob suddenly went bye-bye he was shocked when he was told he was taking Bob's place as the kitchen show guy?

I don't think anyone really knows.  It is really a well-kept secret, it seems.  I think he was told that his contract was not being renewed, but I do not know the backstory.  I seem to be a party of one, but I thought he was a good host.  He was actually a cook with restaurant experience.  He also did a good job on electronics shows, as well as jewelry.  What is odd to me is that there is little to no mention of him if you Google him.  I know he had some acting experience, and was also a screen writer, but he completely disappeared when he left QVC.

Caught a bit of David Venable tonight. I had never noticed the similarities between big Dave and Mr. Potato Head. Searched for a picture. Found one that suited my interest.

I also did not know there was a Mr. Potato Head show on tv around 1989-1990. They could be brothers.   Apologies in advance if the comparison between the two has already been made.

There is information out there about Bob Bowersox, and he has his own website too. He hasn't disappeared. He's had some recent acting jobs. I didn't know anything about him until I researched this. All I knew was that he had been a QVC host, and I didn't remember seeing his shows. (I don't cook much, so I don't usually watch Q cooking shows.) So I was surprised to see how many other entertainment industry things he has done.

Bob has a page on LinkedIn. There are over 10 people with that name on LinkedIn, but I identified him by looking at his work experience and seeing that he was a QVC host for 22 years.

He gives his current job as "Writer/Actor/Producer at Wherever the Work Is, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States."   "About" says: "Over 35 years acting; 21 films (7 as lead); Sitcom (lead); Daytime Drama (recurring supporting player); innumerable TV spots."

Experience:

Playwright/screenwriter, self-employed, March 2000 – present

Resident Playwright, Red Barn Theatre, Key West, FL, Jan 2020, May 2021, I year 5 months

Program Host, QVC Inc, 1986 – 2008, 22 years

Freelance Entertainment Professional, Sox Media LLC, 1984 – March 2000, 16 years. Actor, Voiceover Artist, Spokesperson, Interviewer, Host, Writer

[and similar work]

He has two degrees, PPMFA in Screenwriting, University of California, Los Angeles, 2007, and BA in Journalism, English, Acting, University of Delaware, 1991.

His website is http://www.bobbowersox.com/. It has a long list of his acting and screenwriting jobs, also has his agent's name and contact information. His most recent acting job was a supporting role in the movie "Muti," starring Morgan Freeman. The film will be released "sometime in 2022, with a premiere at the Toronto Film Festival." Bob also wrote the screenplay for the movie.
