Good grief, they’re still trying to unload these dreadful AnyBody rompers. This thing should have “perpetual contender” status in the fashion polls.

Caro in a DJ RUS & PUC (Popped Up Collar) this morning. Her hair is a hot mess.

Carolyn’s Before and After using the TSV “FAUXblo.” Not much of a difference to my eye. The After is a little poufier on top, but that’s about it. Not exactly a ringing endorsement for the product.

Btw, who came up with the name “FAUXblo?” I could make a couple of jokes that play on that name, but I won’t go there. 🙂

Great job on the new Tova.  I love Tova 3.

Today's TSV, I purchased a brush from Amazon that looks nearly the same as the Calista, minus the fancy colors, for $ 24.99. 

I still can't figure out what's going on there.  All you hear them say is " This is your only chance to buy this. No other chance this year."  And they seem to have so little product.  Yesterday during Quacker, it seemed like there were very few choices in every size.  Maybe Q has told vendors not to produce as many items because they don't want stuff piling up in their warehouses.  

Everyone on the East Coast, please stay safe.

The other day someone (sorry, can't remember who) posted that Lori G. had said that prior to CD-19 she had been told to bring in less quantities of her clothing.  The poster also noted clothing is one of the weaker sales areas for Q (which is true).  So it's likely a combination of less quantities of new clothing items being ordered plus over half a year and counting of difficulty in getting those items produced and shipped here, which also means they have to find old stuff to sell in whatever quantities they have just to fill the time.  And it's happening across the board:  For example, how many CIJ items looked awfully familiar?

Would you like to pick a Tova?

Any hair without actual stripes is an improvement.

But #3 Tova looks best.

Looks like she knows it, too!

I notice Sandra isn't even trying to use the roller brush TSV to put a curl in her hair.  I have a feeling her hair is the type that can't hold a curl from any kind of curling iron longer than a couple minutes without hairspray, so if she did try it would be limp in no time.

I also think Sandra layers in extensions.  One wrong move and they will probably fall out especially if they are the extensions are on a string like the real hair extensions she said she used that they sold on QVC once.

Oh, I could see the Q telling people to limit the quantities of items, especially if they know clothing isn’t a great seller. 

Just read an article about Lori where she was quoted as saying that people who look down on QVC fashion are probably jealous and “I can see no difference between QVC and Bergdorf Goodman”.  Really??  Seriously?  Does anyone here think that you’d see Quacker Factory at Bergdorf’s, when Bergdorf’s still existed?

I went into Bergdorf's once when I first moved to NYC.  Got some side eye and a vibe that I shouldn't be in there (probably looked like a tourist) so I left and never went back.

Not the cubes.  It's stock, but made with a focus on using meatier bones and marrow bones.  Chicken (often recipes call for the whole thing to be dumped in the pot) and beef are the most popular but you can use pork and even fish.  Take the bones, add Mirepoix and any aromatics you want, add water, and many hours later (unless you use a faster method), you have bone broth.  It's popular these days particularly in the Keto community for the collagen content, and is said to help with inflammation and provide nutrients like calcium, magnesium, and potassium.  It's also useful to have around if you're feeling unwell as a quick alternative to chicken noodle soup.

You can also buy it already-made liquid form at the grocery store.

Mary D. was pulling apart a Swiss Rosti and the melted cheese inside formed a string that resembled a jump rope.

Mary could not close her mouth, looking wide-eyed from one end to the other.

It rivaled, almost surpassed David's astonished face when he tastes the mac and cheese out of a Temptations steaming casserole dish.

These people act like they have never seen cheese before.

Get over it.  You know full well there will be more tomorrow.

So, basically she knows that most viewers aren’t fans of Nutsy and Acorn, and she could get in trouble for continuing to showcase Nutsy and the Nutsy voice, yet she still keeps doing it? The only explanation...

Why do the hosts always squeeze their meat, so to speak, even when it looks disgusting?  Right now they’re squeezing bacon wrapped chicken breasts, stuffed with Swiss cheese (from Wisconsin, as the OAP is constantly saying) and to say it looks gross is an understatement.   It looks like something from Dr Pimple Popper.  Major yuck.

Blabby Jane said she did not have wet hair in her "before" photo. It was supposedly her 4th day after her last wash, she said. Huh? She had her hair styled at some point in those 4 days. How did it go to looking wet. Behold, the Calista TSV hot brush is a miracle worker to go from Blabby before to Jane after. 

The producer must have been having fun at Jane's expense with how many times her "before" and "after" pics were shown. Jane told us they showed her photo more times than what she figured.

I think she should work with her naturally curly hair. Just gel it or whatever and have that be her style. Why do women with curly hair always style it straight.  And then women like me curl my hair and used to get perms to get curly hair instead of straight.  

It also looks like she had a mini eye lift between the two pictures!  Upper lids hanging and then like magic lids appear!
