Harry Slatkin looks so much better in his natural skin color. LOL!!

Do you know how many homes that man owns?  I don't either, but I read about it online, and it's a lotta lotta real estate!  Those little candles filled with Eau de Paree are making Harry King of the Manse in some pretty posh spots, not to mention paying off his hairdresser and his blazer maker.  Burn 'em up, Harry!  Burn 'em up!!!

Wow, I would love if 3-4 days was my normal!  My normal is/was 7-10 days at least!  

Yeah, I know.....this falls into the category of "Are you bragging or complaining?"  Keep in mind, I live in Maryland, smack in the middle of the east coast, so am in close proximity to their warehouses, no matter where they ship from.  In that 3-4 days of shipping, sometimes the orders come from North Carolina, go up to Pennsylvania and then travel back down to Maryland.  On occasion, stuff is shipping from Virginia Beach, going all the way to PA and back down to MD again.

My recent orders all have taken 7-10 days OR MORE just to get out of the "in process" status.  That's why this is such an anomaly to me!  Why, all of a sudden, did they show up in 4 business days?

Me too. I got boxes that went from UPS to the Post office. The local route was from Eagan to Minneapolis, back to Eagan, to the post office, to St. Paul. 

To those that don't live in Minnesota, this is all within about a 20 minute drive. I wish they would stop with that stupid "UPS Mail Innovations".  It adds about 2 days to shipping.

I hope Kerstain eats Beano with all that broccoli or else she could blow a hole in one of their sets. 

I LOVE broccoli (and am chagrined to be in line with K) and eat it probably 5 times a week.

It doesn't make ME gassy, I've never heard that before............obviously YMMV.

The producer or whoever decided to give Kerstin her own food show the same genius who gave gluten intolerant UnMary her kitchen show too? 

I caught KL presenting those French croissants the other day. Claims she eats a croissant every day and “it’s the best part of my day”. I do not believe that for one tiny second. She had one in her hand and my eyes were on stalks wondering if she was going to actually eat any. Finally she tore a piece off it and ate some. Just once. It was the last item in the show so she was probably straight over to the toilets to stick her fingers down her throat.

Kerstink always tells us she is the ultimate multi-tasker.  She's proud of it but also loves to play the martyr, i.e., all the complaints about her family.  Evidently they are impediments to her finely tuned five year plans.

I need to say that there is nothing wrong, to me, with Jill Martin helping Jill Bauer get on Today.

It’s almost 10am & I’m sure Kerstin is bursting at the seams for showtime. She’s never normal. She’s always OTT. I’m guessing Alberti will be joining her. 
 

The TSV Arctic Expedition Quilted Down Coat with Removable Hood is down to 2 colors. I’m guessing everyone on the east coast got a taste how cold it’s been and is preparing for the worst. LOL!!! It’s actually a cute coat. Also, it’s currently 37 degrees in Philly. Brrrrrrrr! Happy Saturday, y’all!!!

The Rastelli Guy was just explaining how to thaw and cook a turkey breast, pretty important info for potential buyers, when Rachel B cut straight across him to waffle on about it being a limited offer. Then while she was yapping on about that, Alberti slides into view with a fork, takes a piece of the meat, hovers it in front of his mouth successfully pulling the camera off RB to his own waxwork face, and mouths the words “so juicy” silently while RB is still talking. 
 

What is wrong with these people and their insistence on being front and centre of every moment on tv? Boesing is becoming totally insufferable.

Flipped by Q2. Caro looks good in appropriately-sized, flowy top (solid wine color is flattering). Loose silhouette (bit of camouflage for her torso fullness), angled hem. Simple necklace, black slacks with low heels. Nice ensemble which actually looks 'professional.' But she and D&B OAP, Ashley, seemed to be jockeying for talk time, yapping over each other.

Jennifer Kovich is admittedly very attractive. Given the demographics of the shopping channels, not sure skin-tight, shiny black leggings (faux leather?) with 4" stilettos, is the appropriate look. Perhaps another type of channel (especially some of the camera shots). Just sayin....

I have to go to my apps to watch Q2 which I don’t do since it’s a hassle. I wonder if Q2 has been profitable for them? I guess that’s where a lot of the over night host get to work since they abandoned the over night shows. Does anyone strictly just watch Q2?

I only started watching it when I discovered my cable company was carrying it.  I don’t like watching online.  I check out Q2 when Q1 is showing stuff I’m not interested in, and usually only stay if it’s fashion or something like VPH.

I only have OTA on my old TV....which is rarely on. If I watch QVC or HSN, it's usually their YT stream (which neither promotes...they'll mention streaming on FB) on my laptop. Being my TitanTV listings don't include Q2, there's nothing to prompt me to check out what's airing and I hardly ever check the Q2 Program Guide (qvc.com isn't all that user friendly). ITKWM is about the only thing I'll wander by if I want background noise.

ETA: speaking of ITKWM. Kind of refreshing, today, with the show focusing on edibles, for UnM and SS to be nibbling, only sampling little morsels. Haven't seen any of the over-indulging and orgasmic reactions of some of the other food shows (DV, AP...)

Wasn't it determined that the casserole dishes, shown with St. Clair sides, actually contain two of each of the flavors so customers would need to purchase two orders ($120!!) to have the quantity of food shown on air?

If I do choose to watch, or mostly just have it on for background noise, I usually have it on Q2. There seems to be a lot less drama and more useful information.

Sorry, boring post but what was the TSV that sold out today? I went on QVC.com to see if there was a mention but of course, there’s like eight TSVs listed. What’s the point of a TODAY’s Special Value if you’re listing like a week’s worth????

I see her -- and I can't decide whether I'm fascinated by Lori Grenier or not.

On one hand, I'm curious as to how she -- and her business machine -- parlayed her image as an inventor....from going to Asia and other places outside the U.S. and buying up licenses and products to get patents in the U.S.....all the way to being on Shark Tank.

Is SHE really business savvy? Or is there a "wizard behind her curtain?" Does she fool people with the "dumb blonde image," but SHE really is the brains behind her success, or is she just the "front/face" of her "empire?"

Sometimes I'm curious about all that. Other times, I'm just contented to know that SHE does not "invent" her products...and that just because you have a patent on something, doesn't mean YOU invented it. (And I have no doubt most people, and QVC viewers, don't know that.)

And, sometimes I just wonder in a superficial way -- why she dresses the way she does. And why she likes that "look" and who told her color block dresses and platform shoes made for a flattering outfit on her. And of course, what's with the hair.

Mostly I guess I just don't get all the hype about LG.

One of QVC's late night reps is Joe McAllister with Cook's Essentials. I had only seen him in the overnights, but recently saw him on the Sunday ITKWD. It's good to see they didn't dump Joe since they went to recorded programming. 

Regarding QVC's TSV, I'm sure it's a nice coat but it's reallllly pricey. With all the sales, door busters and coupons stores are shoveling at us, I would look online and compare deals before buying anything from QVC. It all ships, right? May as well get it faster and free shipping from a different retailer.

It wasn’t until she was on Shark Tank that I realized how Lori Grenier “invented” her products.  lol. That “Fill-a-Bowl” was a big seller for her when I first started watching QVC.  Her hair and wardrobe have often been commented upon  on the boards!

Regarding watching Q2 — if you have a Roku, Fire TV or Apple TV, etc, you can download a QVC/HSN app through which you can stream any Q/HSN channel for free. Works great, and the stream is in HD. I can get the main channels OTA, but only in SD.
