@AuntCarol, A few years ago, Jo Jo was on Dance Moms, and was actually pretty sweet and polite. Her mother turned full Dance Mom and is one of the reasons I was able to finally walk away from that mess. Abby used to call her Jo Jo with a Bow Bow and she ALWAYS wore them. She and her mom made sure they stayed mostly friendly with all of the other girls and moms and volunteered to support anyone any time, which, I was surprised to see, actually got Jo Jo a career!

Quite amused that neither Isaac or Kirsten can

Pronounce the word current , like the dried fruit , correctly to describe the color
Unless Isaac was doing one of his silly little things and giving emphasis where there shouldn’t be one and Kirsten didn’t know the difference either way it’s sad

Asked myself the same and promptly clicked off. Only watched a couple mins of DV and AC (coughing, clearly not feeling well), present a heating pad. Also, saw a few minutes of him during ITKWD on Wed and ATWD on Thur. As 'professional' as DV can try to be, he might've been physically on set but got the feeling his brain was still on vaca and he'd rather have been back in FL.

I'm trying to figure out the sad point of this?  Does she think we find her cute and sexy? Or showing us how happy she is?  Is she showing me jeans or a top she will be presenting tomorrow? Like I said the Q doesn't sell crop tops.

I was wondering about that also. I know I never want to go back to work after two weeks away. I don't want to go back after one week, let alone two. That's when I really get a taste of "freedom" and hate going back.

With only one week off, you never really forget that you have to go back. And with only one week off it could be a busy week off anyway. But by two weeks off, the things you had to do the first week are done, and the second week is when you really get taste of what it could be like to be free and not have to get up and go to work. And then alack-and-alas the two weeks are over and it's...."God, I really, really, REALLY don't want to go back." 

Psychologically/mentally my first days/week back from a vacation are not the greatest. 'Cause I really don't want to be there. So if David is going through that...I totally get it.

Just watching Fri-Yay with DV (hate the whole Fri-Yay crap, Q trying too hard to be trendy).  Anyhow he had some phone charger for your car that also cuts through the seat belt and glass (last two if you're trapped for whatever reason in your car).  He is doing a hard sell on this item, like it's the most innovative thing EVER.  Then he says, well you know you're driving along with the kids in the car, then they say oh my electronic device is dying - what do you do?  You don't have any device in the car to charge your phone.   Say what?  I don't have your wonder gizmo, and I charge my phone all the time in my car.  It's called a micro cord that you can buy anywhere.  I've even gotten simple adapters (thinking of my mom's older car that only has the cigarette lighter type of thing) at the freaking dollar store.  I have plugs to plug into the wall using my micro cord.  

Did you just sell millions of the Halo devices that everyone HAD to have?  How in the world can people NOT have a way to charge their phones in the car?  Plus, if you have kids that age, you are already prepared if you're going away for hours.  

They are losing me with the outright malarkey to try and sell stuff.  

BTW, found a small sewing kit on Amazon (around $6 - lightning deal - not tremendous but good for the price - pins, needles and thread is worth at least that much) containing basic thread colors, scissors, measuring tape, buttons, snaps, hooks. pins, needles - all in a cute zippered case - ordered around 11 am yesterday, delivered by 10 am today.  Good luck, Q.

Looks like Isaac raided mom’s junk jewelry box tonight. I couldn’t get a full shot but he is sockless with black tennis shoes in his Johnny Cash black suit with those strings of beads. And I am supposed to take fashion advice from him?

On another subject, I saw Jane Treacy do a promo for some show and it looked like she has either had Botox around the eyes or she was plastered up with plexiderm. 
Pat JD needs to step back from the fillers. She is  a pretty lady and I think she would look so much better if she would just let her face age naturally.

I just found out that Mary DeAngelis has thyroid cancer.  She posted a picture on her Instagram page showing her scar and saying she’ll be back at the end of the month.  If you’re cursed with cancer, thyroid is one of the most easily cured.  My dad had thyroid cancer when he was 54 and lived cancer free until he passed at age 89. 
 

Sending good wishes and prayers her way.

That is some visual. I have to agree that I have been rather puzzled by him. Most of his clothing is actually on the classic side , you know, nice tailoring, nice fit. Obviously his success over all over all the years confirms that he is talented and people recognize and respond to that. He is a successful designer. I actually do enjoy his chatter most of the time.

Full disclosure, I have never purchased any of his line from the Q, but I believe for sure I have in the past purchased his line at Tarjay and liked it fine .  I guess I am building up to say that I have always been puzzled by the way that he presents himself, the way he dresses. I TOTALLY get the requirement to be comfy. That 's a biggy to me as well, but somehow even when I am staying in for the whole day, and decide it's ok to wear beloved sweat pants and sweatshirt and slippers (trust me- heaven) I feel  just a tad uncomfortable because it's not a pretty look. Comfort overrules though so it wins. What I am saying in a long winded way is that if I was going to be seen (let alone on TV!!!!) I would put something else on for my appearance.

I guess on the bright side, maybe he is trying to elevate his regular look. You know , for when running errands and then a dinner date and then a meeting at the school and then and then

(then maybe I would rush to change into my sweats).

why post a picture like this  

just say you had surgery and will be back,  I guess I like some degree of personal space 

and yes Thyroid is an "easy one" to fix .  I know ladies who had the surgery and were fine   scar heals well and fades

Given all the hosts QVC has in their stable, why aren't they mixing things up while MD is away (medical leave)? For this very casual, but discerning viewer, JC ensures I won't tune in. How does someone, who seemingly came out of nowhere...and very recently...get 'elevated' to full-on host....on a relatively prominent segment (ITKWM being an offshoot of ITKWD and MD put in her time before being 'promoted')?

Last night when Ant was working with Skunk, they were showing an epilator.  Of course, the discussion went towards talking about their body hair and Ant said that despite being Italian, she doesn't have much in the way of underarm hair.  She then proceeded to say that she'll show Skunk her not hairy pits, and started to pull at her blouse, but obviously thought better of it and stopped short of actually showing us her pits.  TMI

Last week Cearly was "in the kitchen". The few seconds I tuned in she was shoving Philly Cheesesteaks down her gob. Turn it on today, she doing the same thing. Not just a little bite either.

Her hair and makeup look like a middle-schooler did it during their awkward teen years. She's really off-putting.

Wishing Mary DeAngelis all the best.  It hits close to home for me.

Years ago, probably at least 10 years (yikes does time fly by!), I could not shake sinus infection for going on 6 months.  It'd clear up and I'd feel like I had the flu, then symptoms would come back.  I went to my GP for at least 2 to 3 months, as he thought maybe it was viral, and gave me various meds according to protocol.  Then he said we need to send you to specialists (actually wanted me to take a leave of absence and stupid me didn't do it).  So off to ENT and Allergist I go.  ENT was a waste of time, a total jerk.  Then the allergist was one of the best doctors ever.  Found I did have allergies, then he said you have an enlarged thyroid.  My GP had noticed it but thyroid levels through bloodwork was in the normal range.  Allergist said I think you need an MRI.  Great.  Finally sent to a wonderful endocrinologist, and I thought I'd get some pills, maybe say change your diet and be along my way.  Nope.  Biopsy.  Worst procedure I've ever had (but I am very sensitive about anything re my neck - really sensitive).  I cried during the procedure and endo was the best.  As I sat in waiting room to make another appointment and get paperwork for more bloodwork there, the couches were filled with people who had thyroid cancer or relatives of those who had thyroid cancer.  Even though you hear oh it's one of the "better" ones to have of all cancers, it still scares the crap out of you.  It's at a 95% cure rate, but that still means 5% do not make it.  Then, about a week later I get a call asking if they can send my biopsy results to another lab.  Yikes.  No, she was doing it for all her patients as the local lab had too many false positives (came out in the news like days later - big to do).  Both came back negative, and I made it past the 5 year mark.  I now go to GP for management of a thyroid condition via meds.  Anytime I hear a story though, I am like wow, I am lucky.  I don't care how 'good' the odds are, cancer is a bitch period.

I caught a bit of Julia C this afternoon and she wasn’t too bad. It was the first time I have seen her, as I’m not too familiar with the newest batch of hosts other than Terri (I watched her on OLTL before it was cancelled). She seemed pleasant enough, put together and friendly to the OAPs.

@hoosier80 - So glad that your health scare had a happy ending.  I agree with you about taking these things lightly.  I've had scares that turned out okay, but spent days being terrified.  Someone in a white coat uses the word 'cancer' and it is a HUGE deal.

Best wishes to Mary.

Diane Gilman.  She's been on HSN for years and people do swear by her jeans.

She had long brown hair before she got breast cancer.  The hair she has now is what grew back after she went into remission.
