I liked Monifa. Enthusiasm without the syrup. Please don’t saddle her with the unwashed one.

I don't know, I had no idea that yesterday or even the month of April was when the Titanic sank.  Does that mean I'm insensitive to the 1500 who perished?  I heard the clip and I guess I'm not really understanding what all the beef about Carolyn is?  Maybe if I'd heard it in context with everything else, I'd get it?

You're o.k., @lovemesomejoolery.  Just be glad Carolyn doesn't get under your skin like she does some of us.

Lynn Murphy is looking very dark orange right now.

Much like some nitrate-laden animal food product. 🌭

She's on with Carol Brodie, who is professing the rarity of her Rarities.

Carol:  "I'm a Harry Winston/DeBeers girl.  I came out of both of those houses, so I know."

Well, I have a very high-powered BS detector, so I know BS when I hear and see it.

Her haughtiness makes her pretty unwatchable for me.

Hmmm... I would guess that "Master's degree --> Local stage actor --> Contest winner --> Move to L.A. --> Commercials and bit parts --> Shopping channel host" is not the career trajectory that she dreamed about growing up, but I wish her the best and hope she succeeds in everything she wants to do.

I also hope the Q pairs her with good mentor hosts, not the other ones. (We all know who the "other ones" are!) 😛

MaryBeth on Q2 doing the live clearance show.  She was rambling and apologizing and sort of talking to herself or producer. It was uncomfortable to watch. I don't think she has what it takes to do the job anymore. It made me kind of sad.

Forgive me, I don't know what day it was - I think yesterday? - since every day is groundhog day, but I was watching when they had Philosophy on in the morning.  Mary Beth was the host.  I thought during some of the presentations she seemed sort of off.  She's always had a habit of speaking to the audience like we're all five year olds and she's our kindergarten teacher, but this was different.  I couldn't put my finger on it and chalked it up to my maybe being disinterested.

A couple of times, she would correct herself and it was like she was talking to herself, reminding herself of what she should have said instead of what she did say.  And none of it was all that deep it needed to be corrected.

It's like she's lost her confidence or something.  Or aged like 10 years in a matter of just a year.

Looking at the program guide, they're starting her live hosting next week, with 2 hours a week on Q2.  Her first pairing will be with Terri and the next with Julia.

Amy said she's a woman in her 40s with two kids and feeling confident in the tsv swimsuit! She looks stiff as a board and uncomfortable to me and maybe feels a little exposed being on live tv in a swimsuit. Why bother? But she's another one so smug and taken with herself, feels she's that important (at her job) and needs attention. The models look so much more at ease and even better!

I don't mind Amy modeling the swimsuit. She looks good in it. Yep, she certainly is straight up and down, very narrow hips. She really is an XS or even XXS. What drives me crazy is when the hosts keep changing clothes throughout the show, acting like they feel obligated to wear every single thing. (Kerstin and Shawn are the worst offenders.)

Checking the program guide to see which hosts might be modeling the swimsuit tomorrow:

7 a.m. Leah ? Probably not.

9.a.m. Kerstin -- probably. She loves showing her body.

12:00 p.m. Terri?

1:00 p.m. Jen? Probably not at 1:00, because that's an Isaac show. Maybe at 3:00 p.m. when she does accessories.

5:00 p.m. Jane? Maybe. She's brave enough to wear it.

6:00 p.m. Courtney comes on with Jane. Probably not. Courtney is kind of modest.

9:00 p.m. Shawn. Probably not, because it's an Isaac show. Her 10:00 p.m. show is Dare to Share. I doubt she'd wear a swimsuit for that show. At midnight she's doing a Beekman goat beauty products TSV.

So I think the only host highly likely to wear the swimsuit tomorrow is Kerstin.

Agree she looks better with the wrap!  I think Amy looks good in practically everything, but not so much that suit.  It may be the cut of the suit — I don’t like the cut of the legs.  
Haven’t seen any live presentations yet.

Recent casualties such as Stacey, Antonella and the rest must be wondering what Monifa has that they don’t.

I have no idea what Kerstin did, but the last presentation of the day was during Terri's show and she was wearing the coverup that can be bought separately.  The wrap Amy was wearing was pretty much gone earlier in the morning.

They had brought in 30,000 swimsuits and were down to less than 5000 by the end of the noon hour, including one option that sold out at midnight.

Kerstin had the bathing suits on for a couple of hours. She looked good in them. Neither Jane or Courtney had bathing suits on. They were too busy screaming over each other couldn't hear a word, Jane was so flipping loud, I turned it off.

I don’t care for the long, artificially sustained animated host like Jane or Rachel, but sometimes Kerstin appears to disconnect from her spirit  and “de-animates” to the point of a momentary loss of consciousness.

I've noticed recently that Jane has been more intentional about pronouncing "coral" correctly, instead of saying "Carl" over and over. But, she still can't help calling the stuff that comes out of the goats "melk."

The female OAP is Alison Waggoner, who was a host on ShopHQ/Evine before she left there and became the Beekmans' "Milkmaid" a while after.

If you've ever watched ShopHQ/Evine and seen Waggoner Chocolates, that's her family.
