I find Courtney's looks very very very variable. I think she is an attractive woman, but she does have harsh features and I suspect the camera is not always her friend. Sometimes she looks stunning, and other times just so harsh. She kind of reminds me of one of the RHONJ (the Turkish one Jennifer, married to yet another plastic surgeon). Sometimes really looking great, but often just too angular.

I will say that Court is very articulate, and could probably talk for 45 minutes non stop about the eraser on a pencil.

Carolyn:  "Chaz, how long has WEN been around?"  Chaz:  "Since 1993"  Carolyn:  "Wow....you were just a kid back then! (pause, then, w/o any irony)  "And come to think of it, so was I"

No, Carolyn.  Twenty-seven years ago you were already 34 years old.

All three of these need to go along with Shawn Killinger.  Enough is enough!  Oh but test them all immediately for coronavirus.  Shawn Killinger should be the very first one.

WHAT is it that makes almost every Q host turn into a whirling dervish idiot when they set foot onto the kitchen set to sell food?!

First of all...let the effing vendor TALK about their product...especially if it is THEIR company. Quit HOVERING over them like a prison guard in an exercise quad. Are you THAT hungry that the vendor has to risk being mortally wounded by impalement from your stabbing fork?!

MBR stutters and gushes through every product, while peering wild eyed into the camera and exclaiming how she’s never heard of, let alone tried something as exotic as chicken and waffles. Stacey S has gained her stripes working with DV and has become expert at quelling every oncoming orgasm by touching one finger to her nose and closing her eyes until she regains consciousness enough to go on. And then, in the last shutter, gives way to shoulder twisting...because, after all, the happy dance is trademark protected. Alberti obviously honed his skills by having been given the starring role in his high school’s salute to the Marx Brothers. And Rachel B has no equal.

Its almost incredible to think that one of the few hosts who is even half way tolerable in selling food on the Q is Rick D...the original flea in a hot skillet.

Yes...you described the above perfectly.  

I come home to relax/chill a bit and watch some TV before starting dinner.  I pop the Q on--ooh, food...let's see.  OMG!...off-the-charts annoying.  I just couldn't.  I had to change the channel.  Stacy and her cinnamon bun tales...rambling.  The baker guy even looked annoyed.

Whether her lips are natural or not (I'd guess not), the pale pink shiny gloss is not flattering on her. She applied it outside the lip edges too, and it looked sloppy because of the shine. You need a more matte lipstick to get away with that trick.

Speaking of Rick and food presentations.  The Lindt Chocolate representative was on the other day, and Rick wouldn't let her get a word in edge wise.  He was constantly interrupting and shouting, OUR ONLY ORDER OF THE SEASON.  I was thinking of placing an order, but it was Rick's constant barking that made me decide not to.

On the TV show Chopped, the dude has eaten ice cream and sorbet using chopsticks.  I am not joking. 

You can kinda blame Martha Stewart for that, since when she first started making appearances on the show she would often choose to use chopsticks, and soon he started doing it.  But ice cream and sorbet is taking it a bit too far.

whats the problem , there is a window of time to sell their stuff and make some money.   it's business 

Not disagreeing with you there.  Make money while you can, and shopping channels are a prime example of celebs putting their names on things to try to do just that for them and the channels. 

If someone wants to buy mixed nuts with his name on the label, go for it.  I just had a "What the...?" moment when I saw it and decided to share.

Yeah, Terri's acting career in soaps hasn't transcended well with being a shopping channel host. I liked her when she was on ATWT. They gave her the noon gig just to have her do something since she's being paid anyway. LOL!!! She just doesn't have "it". Whatever that is. I'm not really sure her contract would be renewed whenever that is. They do cut people so I wouldn't be totally shocked if she was canned.

Watching a rerun of ITKWD. Those trays with the silicon nonslip things. I bought those exact two trays from Amazon UK Prime for 12 quid no postage. Serious.

They’re $24 down from $27 on the show and $5.50 shipping? 

Never buy silicon from Q without checking Amazon first.

Another proof that Zakarian will put his name on anything:  M-67422

Seriously?  You're slapping your name on jars of mixed nuts?

By his own admission he has slapped his name/brand on a company (Ferris Nuts) that has been sold on HSN for years. I purchased once. They are the worst. Apparently, Warehouse Wally held strong at Germack for a good reason. Ferris is really awful...dry, mealy, no flavor. Maybe Mr Z pumped up the volume, but I think it’s just a recycle.

Anyone ever try those Tara mug cakes?  They look gross to me.  I know I've seen these mixes in the supermarkets before...never tried them.  

Alberti & Rachel...whew, another exhausting pair to watch.  I guess I didn't learn my lesson from yesterday.  I did tune in again, however, my TV viewing choices are limited since I dumped my satellite service recently.  Cost keeps increasing $$!  And, I just had like a basic plan (no added special channels either). 

I've gone old-school antenna!  Gotta say...it's not so bad.  It's only been one month, and I've already adjusted.  Most of the over-the-air channels come in HD, and many of the channels look better than satellite which surprised me. The Q, however, does not...it's a bit funky looking/letterbox format, and everyone looks extra slim.  I get Q (main) & Q 3, but not Q 2...go figure.  I also get both HSN channels.  I do miss some of the satellite channels, but I'd rather save some money for now and decide at a later date if I want to stream or go with something else...or not.  It's nice to have one less bill a month 😌.

I guess I really am over QVC...didn’t watch a second of Logo TSV day. 

Maybe we could combine our Coach collections and open a LARGE boutique? I can also contribute wallets, keychains and other assorted goodies, with another section for LeSportsac and Kipling.

 

And a store next door for cookware. LOTS of cookware.

You can order direct from LindtUSA.com and get their 150-count Spring Mix Truffles for $40. The only advantage the Q has with their deal is the free shipping, but any time your direct-from-Lindt order totals more than $75 you can just use their FREESHIP75 code and get free S&H. Somehow we always manage to order more than $75 dollars worth though.

 

BTW, try to avoid ordering in warmer weather. We always limit our purchases to the winter months after one disastrous purchase from Amazon in September where all our truffles arrived either partly or completely melted. I'm sure Lindt has some sort of dry ice that they use during the warmer months but 3rd party vendors might not. I wonder if the Q has their orders shipped direct from Lindt via FedEx, or if they're subject to the Q's usual Turtle Express shipping? Anyone know?

 

When you register at Lindt's website you get regular emails with special deals and sometimes even a free ship code with no minimum on your order although those are rare and usually only offered around the major holidays. They also ship FedEx within just 2 business days, and have a Rewards Club program. Ordering from Lindt also allows you to order 75-count Custom Mixes with three flavors of your choice.

Apparently, no one at the Q is aware that there is a serious, contagious health issue going on in this country and throughout the world. The food shows are an example of pure irresponsible conduct. Vendors should be wearing gloves and not have hair hanging down over the food. Hosts should be forbidden to use their gloveless fingers to pick up a piece, take a bite and set the rest down with the others. And even when using a fork, no double dipping. I have always disliked the “family style” attitude in the food shows, but in current circumstances it is unacceptable and shows a pathetic disregard for hygiene. 🤒

And good god, Ant...just get a sit down John Deere already, to mow through the food presentations.

I live 23 miles from QVC. My county, which borders QVC's county, is essentially in lock down mode due to the coronavirus. PA's governor announced today that all schools, gyms, entertainment centers and other public venues in my county are to be closed starting tomorrow for a minimum of two weeks to try to contain the virus (my county has the highest number of cases in PA). This is happening essentially next door to QVC. If that doesn't wake people up there...

Between the stammering and the halting speech....she is making up her own words (bajillion😱)....and she thinks she’s so cute and she really really isn’t..

Did I mention how long and stringy her hair is and needs a cut desperately ?

And she, like Christine Zell last night,  keeps saying jooo-lery and there’s  nothing that rubs me the wrong way like that....

I’m so done...
