Jane went too far with the eyeliner this evening, and she really seems to love her Calista flip.

Wow, Jane was fast with her "after" hairdo.  That ought to sell a few right there if anyone is tired of taking a long time to do hair.  She did it off camera, though.  I would have liked to have seen her do that in front of the camera.  That was fast!

Blabby, fiddling around with the Perfector, asked the producer, “Do we have a B and A?” She was asking for her Before and After, of course. The producer obliged. (Love the “eyes to Heaven” pose in the the After!)

She looks so much better with straighter hair - younger and more polished.

I'm tempted to buy one of these Perfector TSVs.  I wonder how long the curl lasts.  I agree Jane looks good in the "after" photo with straighter style.

Good grief, Blabby looks awful.

Hair and makeup.

Even her teeth look odd. 

I am wondering too if she is ok.

 

 

Love Maria Mc's hair style and color. At first I thought those big panels of highlights were kind of out, but actually probably anything goes now. Within reason!

I have a Perfector, which I bought a couple of years ago and I really like it. My hair is naturally wavy (but not in a good way) so I use it to smooth and create volume. The style does last, so I’m sure curls would last too.

Yep, this is a new thing. Blabby was so dramatic about it. She opened the show by squealing, “After 35 years of doing this job and 15 years of doing this show, I have goose bumps because we’re doing something new!”

Then they cut to the customers on Skype and she starting frantically waving to them. She was bouncing up and down on the couch so much I thought she would wet her pants.

Then she turned around and said she was teary-eyed over this, putting on her best “I’m gonna cry!” face.

Blabby nearly had an orgasm when one of the Skypers asked her to explain the jute stripe on the Spenco sneaker. Someone asking her to blab some more - does it get any better? It looks like she’s thanking the Lord in the second pic.

I doubt it will be long before they get an "obscene" video call.  Years ago, Kathy Levin took a customer call, and the caller immediately went into the most obscene language, directed at Kathy herself.  A true obscene phone call.  It took at least 30 seconds for them to cut the call.  I guess the Q did not think they would need caller delay (they did!) You just know there will be some joker who will do that on the video.

Ick.  Based on some photos of customers wearing Q merchandise on another site I visit, it’s NOT a great idea.  Also why I would not post photos of me in my Q clothes.  There’s a reason models model! 😁

They had a group of customers on Skype the first night of the Q 35th birthday celebration with Rick and Courtney. I only watched a little bit of it, where Courtney was asking them what their favorite Q products were, so I don't know if they used that group in specific product presentations.

Are they giving these customers a gift card to be on the show in a Skype group, or just the "prestige" of being on TV? This is more involved than just random people calling in, and you only hear the audio. It has to be organized and coordinated ahead of time. I wonder if they rehearse?

Are you listening, QVC PTB????

I don't know what's going on with Carolyn's eyes. They have had that wide startled look many times in her recent visits. Maybe it was caused by an illness?

Boy, Monifa Days has a really laid back, low key presentation style.  It's not a bad thing and certainly an antidote to some frantic, frenzied, mad crazy kewl hosts.

But I dozed off, which may not be the goal.

@KLovestoShop hopefully you are feeling a bit better and less anxious this morning! Think of this as the first day of your new life.

Trust in your doc, nurses and physical therapists to take very good care of you and control any pain you may have.

I’ve had both hips replaced, knee surgery + many broken bones, so I speak from experience.

Barring complications, everyone will want you up and around quickly. I know it seems daunting with multiple sites involved, but you can do it. Once again, pain control is excellent.

Two years ago I slipped on ice and snapped the top of my tibia off as well as broke my wrist with permanent bone displacement. Both were on the same side…I was non weight bearing for two months, spent 8 weeks in the hospital and a nursing home but figured out how to get my ass around vía unusual means. Today I’m fine with no indication any of the above ever happened!

Follow doctor’s orders. Take one day at a time. You can do it!

Interesting!  Just read that a vendor (unnamed) said (on Facebook) that all guests were informed by QVC that remote presentations will continue indefinitely.  

Don't know if it's true, but I do know Mike George said customer service will work from home permanently.  I think they even closed one call center.

I actually looked at the Career Opportunities within Qurate to see what was going on.

Hiring at the Bethlehem warehouse, $17-$18.30 per hour.

A number of customer service positions,  all say Work From Home Opportunities.

Well, if the vendors don't come back to the studio, that spares us from having to see all the over-the-top hugging and kissing.

And we get to see more cute cats and dogs in the vendors' homes. 🐶 🐱

That's a plus in my book. I actually prefer the vendors Skyping from home. As @Coffeecup said, less hugging and kissing, and also less bullshitting and more focus on the product. They can keep the remote presentations forever as far as I'm concerned. I think this would be welcome news for a lot of the vendors. Instead of having to truck into West Chester, they get to do their presentations from the comfort of their own home. No travel time wasted, and no travel expenses. Seems like a good deal to me.

I agree.  I think the remote OAP presentations keeps both their big egos in check a bit and the hosts too.  Lots more room to show off when live in the studio.

re remote Reps ,  must be way better for them, but the ancillary businesses around Westchester will get the fallout, no hotels, cars to airport etc

Then there are the vendors who rent or have bought apartments or houses in the West Chester area so they don't have to stay at hotels when they visit.  What do they do?  Give up a lease?  Sell?

That makes sense to me. Someone had to pay for travel and accommodations (I know they had rooms at Q, but meals, etc.?). The presenters are all set up now to do it this way.
