She is so immature. Her emotional bucket has a massive crack in it. 🐿️🤡

As Carolyn was squealing and squeaking throughout, VPH worked the patented "bless her heart" smile.  You've got to hand it to Valerie, she can work with anyone, lol.

That’s why she survived so many years at the Q.

I think Jen Coffey is sincere.  Vision boards aren’t my thing, but I’m not saying they don’t work for others.

 

.

She's always had a vision board and really does believe in them as tools to achieve one's dreams; in this sense I agree with you.  But of course QVC exploits all this "New Age" stuff to part viewers from their money and Jennifer must go along with the game.  The hosts have convinced themselves that they are truly doing something wonderful for humanity, lol.

Well, if your conscience bothers you after spending hours on air telling lies to viewers, you gotta think up some justification to help yourself sleep at night. "But I'm helping them!"

The women were sex workers. This caused a big reaction in the UK. Opinion was split on whether a member of the Royal Family should be telling prostitutes that they are strong, or brave, especially using a banana to do so which was deemed inappropriate or just plain odd. 
Others thought it was caring thing to do. 

I stand corrected-they were sex workers. The banana writing was still stupid. How this was supposed to help and inspire is beyond me.

No.  Convincing the hosts that they are helping customers is just part of the Q indoctrination training.   I think that’s why some of these newbies left.  They couldn’t do it and look at themselves in the mirror anymore.

I think it’s this simple, if you want to keep your job, you push what the company says. Most jobs are like that, they just aren’t as visible than the Q.

True fact.  We all have done or do things at our jobs at the behest of our employer that we don't like to do and/or don't want to do.  It's the price one pays to eat, have a roof over their head, health coverage, etc.

That's why my Vision Board has the big old RETIREMENT on it.  Or, win Lotto!  LOL!

I think the way I worded it was confusing, sorry!  I meant Alex Butler was fired more than a year ago.

I was just including Alex to your list of hosts that have recently left.

Oh no Jane...you didn't?  Did she just tell us a story about her announcing in a store that she knows PTR personally?  I didn't catch the name of the store.  I just turned the TV on, and there she is blabbing away.  And away she goes...it is Friday after all.  On a positive note, she looks very spring-like (raspberry sherbet color) on this chilly day here in PA--snow flurries while out at lunch time today (miss having some snow this winter...can't believe I feel that way, but I feel we're already onto Spring and Winter never really happened).

Serious question...is PTR facial hair real or is it painted on...what does everyone think?

I mentioned on these boards last year--my sister saw him at Q's Beauty thing, and he was looking and/or talking away on his cell phone for quite some time at his booth...not into the crowd I guess.  LOL!

I don't if it's painted or just sparse.  Honestly, I try not to look too hard at him, as he squicks me out!

Here is Antonella being a good sport on Shawn's Friday night beauty show, letting her hair be used for a demonstration of the Calista Finishing Spray. I think her hair looked better before (pic where she's sitting in her chair and smiling).

He is creepy AF. Didn’t he go thru a mid life crisis recently, divorce his wife and start dating someone younger? I want to say it was Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife but I can’t remember for certain. His jewelry line isn’t horrible (pricey though) but he is on my no watch, no buy list.

Went over to the QVC forum. Someone made a post about kerstink , I was shocked they didn't take the post down. They did lock  the thread. Kerstink you suck !

Kirsten's blunder

 

Options

‎02-28-2020 08:01 PM

While watching the end of a program today - in which Kirsten was hosting organized options - I couldn't believe that for the sake of a sale of an item she would use fear (of corona virus) and suggest a reason for purchasing a rack for the storage of items.  The last thing this country needs is hosts telling people they will need someplace to put the items they are buying for stock up due to the corona virus.  Really?  I've thought of Kirsten as a circus-barker for quite a long time and this took the cake.  Between the ridiculous rapid fire talk and the strutting I will intentionally NOT make a purchase during her presentations.  Good grief.  QVC can do better than this...and so should their hosts!

Watching The Q this morning.  Alberti is talking a mile a minute.  It’s causing me to have anxiety.   He just sounds desperate.  

I’m not a fan of Kirsten but I’ll take her boring monotone over Alberti’s hyper jabbering.   Want a relaxing Saturday.  If I want to get all spun up, I’d watch the news.

His ex wife claimed he tried to swindle her out of her fair share during the divorce. She helped build the company with him during their 20 year marriage.

A quote from her lawyer:

“This case shows that Mr. Roth should go back to the lab to try to develop a cleanser for the soul and perhaps a cream or ointment that promotes basic decency and honesty.”

Ouch!

So this is what skeeves me out about Peter Thomas Roth. 

Here is what he looked like BEFORE he had what appears to be a total face transplant and discovered spray tans and stubble.  And prior to his deciding that his "come hither look" was sexy.
