What a stupid, disingenuous thing for David to say about a product that has his brand name on it, and not on the back but right on the front!

Sundays were the day my husband and I would watch ITKWD.  We can't anymore.  He is so full of himself in a way he hasn't been before.  I know he was always pretty self-important, but lately he's just become unwatchable for us.  The repetitive product doesn't help, either.

 

The cutting board is sold out. What next ?  Perhaps Tara could put happy dancing Dave on some dishes. What should be the next David product ?

Jacqui with a Mimosa on Q2.

Jacqui has a pretty nice view from her window.

Perhaps I shouldn't have given the side eye to her alleged background of personal shopping for the rich and famous.

Sounded like some LinkedIn embellishment to me, but perhaps it is true.

A very special edition Medic Alert bracelet, exclusive to QVC and ITKWD.

It automatically calls 911 if you are eating any of David's Half Homemade recipes, to alert the hospital to get the angioplasty instruments ready for your arrival.

It will account for differing levels of urgency, depending on what you ate and quantity consumed.

Example:

Mac and cheese with bacon and 14 different cheeses:

One serving:  Ready the heart monitor

Three quarters of a baking dish:  Sterilize the unclogging equipment

 

Buy as many as you want.

Store in your gift closet.

Give out at Christmas for immediate use, after you've served the donut bread pudding. 

Comes in 12 colors.

Soon the Q will have to run a public service announcement:

"We, here at QVC, do not endorse the drinking of any alcoholic beverage while operating heavy machinery.  However, we do hope you will be double-fisting any distilled grain or fermented grape thirst quencher that will inebriate you to the point of wanting to buy as many Jimmy the Baker's crumb cakes and colorful Tolani tops as your giggly self sees fit to do."

Sure.  Just like the at-home parties where adult beverages are served.  Inhibitions lessened = more sales.

Back to:an earlier post, I have not noticed that the wine in JRT’s glass gets any lower.  It is a prop, unlike Shawn’s use.  (I don’t really care if Shawn is drinking,  but don’t want other who care, to think JRT is in the  same sales mode.)

Susan Graver:  "Women tell me they've changed over their entire wardrobe to liquid knit."

Well, they're just nuts. 

Jen (wearing Susan's tie sleeve liquid knit top): "I'm 5'6" and wearing the xx small."

Then, without mentioning the dwindling pandemic, but planting a seed that another cause of death is right around the corner:  "Life's just too short to be uncomfortable."

The top was pulling under her arms, but baggy all over the body of the shirt.  Same fit on an even slimmer, less busty Kadisha.

Pulling is not comfortable.  It's right up there in annoyance with an itchy sweater or fly buzzing around your face.

I guess with all of Susan's attention to creating a properly fitted trouser, she totally forgot about properly fitting a top.🤷‍♀️

Caro is hopeless. I find it amazing that she can continue to find ways to look worse than  before. 
BTW, I’d say her middle and Diamond Dave’s are about even. Maybe they can join together for one more “host name” product. This time, a clothing line:

“David and Carolyn’s BELLY BUSTERS”.

its not her fault that she looks awful in the TSV, it is the stylist's fault for a lousy job of doing it or not finding her a better option 

I think by the way she was scarved and jacketed she was uncomfortable in the jumpsuit

One would think this look says: 

"I don't care.  I'm getting paid anyway."

or

"Maybe my prescription needs an increase in magnification."

But the way she examines herself in the monitor and poses, she really thinks she looks good.

Straw hair.  Sloppy clothes.  No, you don't.

She really does. When she was presenting that jacket - zipping, unzipping, twirling around - she was just so full of herself. Confidence is a good thing...until it crosses over into delusion. Carolyn is on the delusional end of the spectrum.

Sure, a host should get bonus points for wearing the clothing they are selling at their place of business.

But if those clothes are ill-fitting and unattractive on you, then that doesn't make you or your place of business look good.

There are a lot of fuller-figured women shopping at the Q for fashion. And the cut of the clothing they sell, while available in larger sizes is, much of the time, not flattering.

It seems like QVC does not make use of focus groups, where different demographics can express what they want and what they don't want in clothing.

Marla Wynne does this. She seems very interested in pleasing her customers.

Getting more and more disgusted with Carolyn every day.  Landed on Q3 and there she was with an early morning Carolyn's Closet, making fun of Gary yet again:  "Do you think he's still asleep at this hour?  I'm sure he's putting on eye cream and a beauty mask."

Gracie follows this up with:  "I'll bet Gary, if he's listening, would want to reach into the t.v. screen and strangle me"

I'm not a violent person.  Perhaps a good on-air throttling would suffice for this bitch.

Tough love moment for snarkers:

She's never going to dress in a figure-flattering manner.

She's never going to condition her hair.

She's never going to put three pieces of clothing together that coordinate.

She's never going to see what we see.

She's never going to change.

We can only change our attitude towards her.

Now buck up, gird your loins, and ready yourself for the next fashion disaster tomorrow.

I may be going out on a limb here. I didn't see the show where Caro made these comments, so just going by the quotes written here. Is there a slight homophobic slant to her digs at Gary ? I don't know anything about Gary's personal situation, so maybe that even doesn't apply, but just a thought. Didn't she joke about his manhood on a previous show when she said Acorn was the only male ? Even if she's "just kidding" and wasn't intending to relate it to whatever may be his sexual orientation, the comments are still nasty and unnecessary and just basically bitchy. 😟

Yes, her comments are homophobic, harrassing, ignorant and ballsy, to say the least. How she's allowed to do this is beyond me. Gary should sue her. She also needs to knock off the stupid squirrel shit.
