Shopping Channel Hosts: Sales Prevention Team

Hi Gang! 🤗

Stopped watching shopping channels for over a year but now I'm back. Nice to see everyone! I missed the snark and the fun, that's for sure! Hoping you all are safe and experiencing good health, enjoying getting back out there as you feel comfortable. 💖

 

Enjoying this new overnight host from Los Angeles. She seems very professional and has a very smooth and calming voice.So poised and confident! So much better than the strange inconsistency of Celery Lady.

  I do wish she would dress up a bit more like a host instead of someone behind the scenes. God forbid I just like someone without finding something to bitch about! 
 

Missed you!  So glad you're back!

Did I detect a bit of smugness from Diva when he was demo-ing his surf 'n turf burger?

I'm loving seeing all the comments from the disgruntled fans who didn't receive their special Facebook group invite for Diva's cookbook.

I'm sure the CS reps are going to be thrilled to be dealing with all of the phone calls from people who haven't gotten the email yet and want it, now, and having to repeat over and over, "Have you checked your junk/spam folder?  Have you checked your Q account settings so you can receive the email in the first place?" etc.

Although they have taken the "within 24 hours of ordering" that was originally advertised off the product page, which is a tacit admission that yeah, they screwed this up.

And the skank from KC looks like he sells knock-off Nikes and Rolex from under his raincoat on 42nd Street. 
He creeps me out. 😳

I seem to remember Kathy Levine as the lead trainer in the past. For the most part, her trainees were top quality. Many have weathered the long haul.

IIRC, MBR was anointed  appointed newbie head master after her car crash and head injury, which rendered her dingier than she already was. Due to memory lapses, her heretofore previous marathon TV time was greatly reduced. For a while, she displayed a split personality of good girl/ribald bad girl with a marginally offensive potty narrative.

It appeared the Q had a classic HR case of ‘what do we do with legacy Bell Cow now that she’s mental flotsam?’ MBR constantly referenced the accident. The Q didn’t need a major scandal involving the firing of every mindless Qustomer’s favorite dingbat...sooo, they ‘elevated’ her to new host trainer.

As the old saying goes, GIGO 

Mary Beth was a mentor many years before her car crash. She mentored Rick and the unmentionable one, among other successful hosts.

MB’s smile is a bit strained, especially compared to Vanessa’s genuine one.

I wonder if MaryBeth’s “training” of new hosts is purposely lacking in order to protect her interests.

Could our pageant queen, the former Miss Teen Minnesota, be capable of such skullduggery?

She has an adopted family issue outside of the Q that's causing her a lot of stress.

I love this comment about the book email problem:

"Mary should get her act together!

Always so gung-ho but can't fulfill promises!

Should have Ali Carr, much more personable."

(I can't even imagine getting so upset about something inconsequential like this....but I'm not a David groupie.)

I think David's groupies think of him as Santa Claus and Mary as one of his elves, and if nothing else, elves should be efficient in their tasks for the big guy.

By next month, his book will probably be abutting Woman's World at the grocery store checkout, flanked by the Chiclets and Mentos where it should be.

And I can't imagine people being so stupid as this, thinking that a QVC host, and not some IT person/program is responsible for generating the email to the FB group.

Really?  They think Mary's supposed to do that as well as be on air 22 hours a day? (referencing all those 2 hour shifts she did yesterday or the day before).

Well, considering how many reviews I've read from people who have taken it as a personal affront when a host said a product was great and they bought it and didn't like it (food in particular), I can truly believe there are cookbook buyers who are blaming the hosts themselves for the lack of a timely email in an inbox.

I noticed that too.

Shared hosting anger eating? 

Inflated ego?

Bunion slippage?

Tick, tick, tick…almost time for three hours of shoe shopping in Jane’s closet. I’d be looking over my shoulder hoping no one accidentally slams and locks the door.

The last time I saw her was wig day, and her face looked very round.

Maybe that is why she shows so much love to My Courtney:  needed a good reference for facial enhancements.

Jane just called her cat "evil".

I thought KiKi was the love of her life?

After her NYC daughter.

And Disney.

Maybe she was scratching at her closet door.  Kiki, that is.

Jane must be carrying some scary microorganism because it looks like there is no professional illumination occurring. 

More like a flashlight rigged on top of a propped up Lexi Marigold.

Rinky dink production quality.

Jane (from her closet):  "I wonder who is going to come in here tomorrow to clean up this mess?"

Jane (answering her own question, laughing):  "Me, that would be me."

Yes, very difficult to place shoes back in boxes.  🙄

Don't worry.  You can blab while you box them.

I know we've said this before but it bears repeating. Given all the new hosts who have bombed out in the past few years - and who were mentored by Mary Beth - why do they continue to use her as the host trainee mentor? I don't get it.

I don't think the hosts' failure to reach company standards can be blamed on their mentors, who are there to support and provide backup to the training. If the new hosts decide to ignore suggestions or aren't able to reach the goals set for them, it certainly isn't the mentor's fault. And who is hiring these people that only last a couple of years? Who makes the decision to assign a host to Q2, where the chances to reach sales goals are very low?  Nancy is a perfect example. I liked her and thought she did a good job. But off she went and finally got the boot.

Yeah, I don’t think MBR is to blame.

I’m kind of loving JRT doing the shoe show from her closet!  So odd and dumb!!! Yayyyy! 
 

Hooray that Katrina is kicking off the TSV tonight.  I want her to succeed.

Not sure about the linen/ rayon not-wide leg ( but to me it is wide leg) pants.  TSV.  I have a wide gut but thinner legs, so not sure this works for me.  Cute, though.

Some highlights from SSWJ on The Deuce. She said she converted a spare room at home into a shoe closet. She had a "treasure shelf" on display behind her and shared all kinds of sentimental treasures throughout the show. Like a picture of her Mom Ginny, Ginny's white gloves, Ginny's hat, her QVC nametag, a dinosaur dear Dad Rudy made for her, family photos. She even did a leg lift to show off a shoe. Kiki and Deidre even made an appearance! And to top it off she closed the show with a glass of wine toast!  JRT did manage to sell a few pairs of shoes in between. LOL!

When she rambles on about JackieJane , I think she is almost talking to herself because no one can keep up with her. Like an alter ego or something.

Szish has a black skull and crossbones inner wrist tattoo? 

First, ouch.

Second, from here it looks like a prison tattoo or a tragic crafting /Sharpie accident.

Or maybe it is one of those tattoos where they inject a loved one's cremains into the ink. That's actually kind of cool; I'd do that in a second.

I'll bet she has some stories about her NYC days that don't involve fashion!

 

Also, her nails look like crap. Surprised coming from Miss High Style.
