Wow!  Double wow!  Isaac got a sweet deal. No wonder he keeps telling 🦨 how much he loves her. For that much money, he will love everybody at QVC.

Kendy K. on Shop HQ (exclaiming delight at some shoe):  "Ho-lee buckets!"

This brings to mind Albany's signature "Oh my stars and garters!"

Buckets, and stars, and garters.  Oh my!

Which conjures up an image of David crying out, "Oh, my word!"

Then Kendy says she has big, healthy, German thighs ("but a tiny wrist", says her producer).

This keeping up with the shopping tv personalities is rotting my brain.

But like the COVID pandemic, we're all in this together.😜

A statement necklace, if ever there was one.

The statement:  "I will not be ignored." 

Alternate statement:  "I need the name of a good physical therapist for this aching neck."

Please see video, with model in purple dress, for full effect:

https://www.jtv.com/product/gold-tone-heart-charm-necklace-and-earring-set/OPC980

 

That necklace is from the Off Park collection. Everything in that collection is big, bold and heavy. I like their pins and have a few, but I can only wear them in the winter, because you need a thick sweater or coat lapel to keep the pins from drooping and pulling your clothes crooked.

JTV also has a line called  Moda al Massimo, gold plated bronze jewelry in classic Italian styles. The OAP is a charming Italian man, and I love listening to him speak. But this jewelry is big and heavy too. I saw a necklace that I liked from the website photo, until I read the description in the dropdown under Jewelry Attributes. The necklace weighs 89 grams!  Nope, nope, nope.

OAP for the trash can TSV was struggling a bit on the launch with Leah. Lots of hesitation and awkward silences where Leah was obviously expecting her to speak or give info but she didn’t. Not good.

The OAP is still "struggling" with Terri. Still more of the same awkward silences, delays and hesitations.  Terri is doing all the talking and pretty much carrying the entire presentation.

I thought the same thing about the jean jacket. When I saw her in the dress alone, it reminded me of the house dresses my late mother used to wear back in the day (she called them “shifts”). With the jean jacket though, Caro looks okay.

Ant update (plus editorial comments):

Headed up to Maryland on the boat to get port placed for chemo.  Seems like a long time to wait with a diagnosis of cancer months ago.

Cat won't stay inside the boat and struts along the deck, hopefully incident-free.

Her son looks like a pirate (of Penzance).  I thought he hijacked their yacht.

Discussions of where you go to the bathroom on a boat were answered (or what happens with the remains of the day, so to speak).  Goofy giggles ensue.

The sea and sky views were beautiful, but  if I were Ant, I would worry about feeling sick on the water.

She still seems in good spirits.

Thank you for the update about Ant. I’m curious, but not enough to click on her channel to help her generate revenue. I feel bad for her, as I would anyone who has/had cancer, but I get the impression she’s trying to cash in on her success at QVC. I don’t find her to be a friend—rather someone who’s trying to take advantage of former viewers. I felt that way before the cancer diagnosis, so nothing has really changed my opinion. The whole boat adventure is odd given her circumstances. I have to wonder if she’s putting it all out there in hopes of a reality show or something.

If not for all the oddness about Antonella's panhandling fund raising etc., I could probably watch the videos of them at sea, so to speak.

As for their son...one look and I think I might know why he isn't employed.  Antonella and her husband are trying to come off as if they don't know a whole lot about what they're doing, but I have to believe that is a ruse.  Sailing a rig such as that without a whole lot of knowledge about it would be certifiable in my view.

Most chill kitty ever.  Mine would have leapt off the side just to end their panic.  I'm a bit angry that she doesn't keep it in a life vest, or maybe inside the cabin?  Do.not.like.

She said she cannot keep the cat inside, or in a life vest.  And she or he loves the water.

I was getting nervous, too, watching that water rushing by, but, as they say:  cats rule.

Oh My Word!  (and no, that's not something I say normally, but it's a Davidism that is more "clean" than what I really want to say!)

Watching David eat is as stupid and gross now as it was a year ago!  Maybe more so.  It's just food, for crying out loud!

No potstickers in the show.

I shall have pork dumplings in the fridge for breakfast, then.  As far as I know there is nothing in the US Code that makes consuming such items for breakfast an illegal act.

(He only consumed two items:  The bone broth and the Delizioso Desserts.)

He actually made mention at the end of the show about his happy dancing and the yum-yum face and googly eyes and to me he strongly implied he knows there are people who make fun of it.  But he prefers to think of the Happy Dance as a form of optimism.

I have not missed the on-air eating one itsy bitsy teeny weeny bit. 
 

I have liked Kim Gravel about 100% more when she's been Skyping in than when she was in the studio, shrieking at the top of her lungs. She even toned down her makeup quite a bit, or so it seemed. I will not be happy to see her back in the studio when they all come back. 

I would ten thousand times rather watch Susan Motormouth “Literally a Liquid” Graver from home because of her adorable dog who keeps coming into camera range and stealing the show.

Just stumbled upon OAPs doing their own shows without a host over on Q2. I like it! Although the Peace Love World lady seemed a little iffy, she was also interested in giving us actual information about her items rather than blathering about her dead relatives or trying to impress us with her glorious life.

And surprise of surprises, I am finding GILI Jill Martin halfway watchable when there is nobody there with her but her mom. She is talking like a regular person, not the stupid airheaded celebrity stalker/namedropper she used to come across as.

Random QVC thought:

Which hosts have pleaded poverty?

From start to seniority, it is still somewhat of a mystery the salaries hosts earn, but I am assuming they do well for themselves.

Yet there are some for which it is simply not enough.

Broccoli Queen claims to have been financially ruined by the adoption process, though she had been gainfully employed as a newsperson prior to this hosting gig, and always seems to have the in-laws waiting in the wings as benefactors.  Are they paying her in 8Greens instead of greenbacks?

Just Jill has posted pics of her (second) vacation house, saying that she had to redo it on a budget.  And in her PA home's "40 year old kitchen", she could only replace a backsplash and now, yay, the cabinets, because she does not have the budget for an entire renovation.  Maybe she truly was doing it all for us, not the money, as she has stated.

Ant's situation went from bad to worse, due to health issues and husband also becoming unemployed.  She got on the Patreon bandwagon soon after termination from QVC, asking for a dollar in exchange for a recipe.  Maybe having an elevator installed in a home puts a lot of hurt on the finances.  Perhaps it even came with a professional liftman.

Interesting how Our Lady of Perpetual Anonymity never complained about finances and lives high on the hog.  But she is a swinging single who feasts on inexpensive cauliflower and seems to be responsible only for herself.

Maybe we should be grateful for Jane's family stories and glad she doesn't tell us that she is slowly but surely going into hock from her monthly visits to Disney World with her clone crew.
