A drag queen selling some cocktail nuts is a "debacle"?

I guess if you are looking for trouble watching a shopping channel from your hateful high horse, you might deem it so.

 

I just checked the posts and there is push back from posters who like Latrice and are glad she is representing squirrel brand, it gives me some hope.

Right ? And the presentation was really just pretty standard. Nothing risque or even any innuendo. I'm sure the fact that RuPaul's Drag Race was even mentioned was enough to set some people off.

I've watched RuPaul's Drag Race before but it has been years. I hadn't heard of Latrice but I've seen her in memes, waving her fan and saying "shade". 

I didn't know QVC had replaced their other Squirrel Brand OAP with Latrice. I was surprised for a few seconds to hear a deep voice I was unfamiliar with being the new OAP, so I looked over at my tv to see a woman's face to go with that deep voice. Mary mentioned RuPaul's Drag Race. I'm not shocked by her at all. For money, QVC is being forced to think outside their usual. What will QVC do next?

I get the sense that Squirrel made this variety under the Royale name like how Vintage Wine Estates will make wines with a celebrity's name on the label for Q to sell.

Pretty much all of the discussion threads on the QVC site have been closed or removed. Didn't take long. Kinda sad.

Well, the Mr. Pillow advocates had to chime in, like the situations were equivalent. Then we were off to the races, sigh. 😟

There's actually a one-star review already posted for the product!

"..using a creepy trans freak of nature to generate sales."

Good reason to not allow a review before the item is shipped!

I wonder how a review for a product can be posted already since it was new today?

ETA - I just went over there and there are many, many reviews of Latrice, not the product. And just as @JohnnyStar5 said, they were not nice. Some were supportive - but not of the damn product!!!!

Not sure, but I think sometimes they do pre-sales of products, and that would account for early reviews.

But QVC has always allowed people to post reviews of products they didn't buy. That makes no sense at all. You are supposed to use reviews to talk about your experience with the product, not post opinions on items you never bought.  That's what their forums are for -- a place to post your opinions, whether or not you made a purchase.

If QVC continues to allow those fake reviews, then they should follow Amazon's example and use the "Verified Purchase" notation whenever somebody really did buy the product.

I wonder if the name Ruby Royale came first and then there was a discussion about how to market it.

“Ruby Royale, it sounds like a drag queen!”

”OMG you’re right, like Latrice Royale?”

”Ha Ha yeah, imagine if we had Latrice promoting this for Squirrel...”

Lightbulbs go on around the virtual conference table 💡

I looked into this and see that Squirrel commissioned an entire ad campaign for the product featuring Latrice, not just a Q appearance. 

Of course, the focus is social media, not broadcast TV, with lines like "put these nuts in your face!"

Given her huge number of followers it makes sense.  Very clever.

Just wait until it becomes clear to some of these people who are unhappy with Latrice presenting/having her own product find out that........David Venable is gay!

Whichever QVC buyer is obsessed with leggings/joggers in a pinkish/flesh color needs an intervention! It’s not flattering on any of the models.

Say what you want about Alberti presenting women’s clothes, but he’s proof that the host of a fashion hour doesn’t have to model every item presented. I’m so sick of Amy, Jennifer, Kerstin and others putting on everything they’re selling and preening around the set. This is what the models are there for!! Alberti does a fine job presenting the item and letting the models do what they’re paid to do - wear the item.

And oh boy do those three preen !

They can’t wait to disclose their sizes and feel they are much more important to the clothing than the actual models...And heaven forbid it’s a plus size model, the first question out of their mouth’s is oh what size are you wearing ? So offensive...

And I completely agree about Alberti

I think they're asking the models what size they're wearing so the viewers can see what that size looks like on the model. As we all know by now, QVC tends to dress the models and hosts in clothing one or two sizes too small. So if you see one of them in tight clothing with the seams straining, you know to order up a size.

But I agree that the hosts often seem to be boasting about their small sizes. Yeah, they all wear XS. 😄

Also agree that Alberti does a great job presenting clothing.

Courtney is complaining about her under eye wrinkles, marionette lines, and jowls while presenting the Nu Face product.  What is she, all of 33?

She is still nasal from her recent plastic surgery, and I would not be surprised if she is contemplating more.

I'm hoping she is not scrutinizing her face to the point that she wants to erase everything on it.

Well, they got rid of all the nasty Ruby Royale reviews...the only 1 star reviews state that they just didn't like previous Squirrel purchases.

All of the 5 star reviews praise Latrice and Q for reaching out, being inclusive, etc., etc.

However, the only product mentions are that it looks appetizing, will buy the product because of Latrice, like previous Squirrel Brand purchases....

Wasn't it just the other day someone posted a pic of Caro where she looked really good- in clothing that fit and flattered her and the color was pretty and all that? Well the one above of the Denim and Co is NOT a good look. In any way.  And yet she CAN look good. 

And I love how she twirls and thinks she is the cat's meow.
