Sorry to say…

The My Saint My Hero rep is Tony Robbins in a dress.

Blabby “I get chills” Blabathon is in rapture selling simulated $49 miracle pearls.

The rep appears to be rolling in big bucks showered from heavenly royalties.

Have praying babushka ladies been replaced by off-shore bead stringers?

I guess what gnashes my teeth is that Jill does not have any credentials to tout herself as a lifestyle expert.  Furthermore, I get a bit annoyed at how she like so many other former hosts who leave, do so proudly only to return to the Q in some other capacity and/or sell from their home sofas.

Sometimes I wonder if somewhere buried deep in the so happy you are back nonsense is a fat lawsuit settlement. 
 

“I’m leaving to spend more time with my family/dog/mother-in-law/best friend’s husband” is a bunch of crap.  We know that they know that we know they got the cardboard box express tour out the back door right after making their goodbye video.

Oh dear, Mama Gendel needed to size up this morning during AM Style. The dress is skin tight, and the low-slung belt is an odd choice with that dress. From the side, it looks like she’s packing ammo in that belt. Also in the side view, she’s got “double bubble trouble” going on. Wait - aren’t Breezies bras supposed to prevent that? 😊

Watched a bit of Kim G and Courtney. They really do work well together and I can see the appeal. They have such a great rapport and you feel like you are friends with them.

Now my snarky comment is that as lovely as Courtney looks, her eyebrows have a life of their own and someone needs to guide her.

It's ridiculous how shitty most of the OAPs set-ups are.

I caught a couple minutes of Dennis Basso the other night with BCB (The Szish List), and his already giant head, was even larger because it looked like he was sitting 6 inches away from the camera.  The picture and sound were horrific.  Hate, hate these remote presentations.

They've become popular the last few years because of low-carb and keto diets, and some brands are gluten-free (the Oak Stove ones that Q sells are gluten-friendly, so the food doesn't have any gluten in it but is being made in a place where cross-contamination with products that do have it may happen).

I think for marketing purposes these you-can-toss-them-in-the-microwave products, which have also been marketed as egg bites, get called crustless quiche because quiche is a better-known term, although I occasionally have seen them marketed as frittatas.  Never have seen them called Spanish tortillas or omelets.

Momma G belongs in her own special category:  OAPs who destroyed their brand by wearing their own product. This gives me zero confidence in Breezies.

On a side note, I have purchased exactly 1 Breezies product, a t shirt bra that was the oddest fit ever.  Nothing I could do to adjust would make it fit right.  Every time I reached up the bra would ride up and I would have to continually pull it down.  Should have returned it as defective (meaning it's a POS fit).

We still haven’t had an explanation of her foray into pizza last year. Don’t hold your breath! 
Reminds me of being in Rome a few years ago and going out to lunch with my bestie (who was living there at the time) and some local friends he had made. One girl made a huge fuss about needing gluten free pasta at lunch which the restaurant dutifully obliged with but which delayed us massively. 
Two nights later we were wandering through the Trastevere and came across Miss Thing stuffing a shared pizza in her face with a group of other girls. I mean, they might all have been gluten free and it might have been a gluten free pizza but it really didn’t look like that sort of place. 

No disrespect to coeliacs and those with genuine allergies or but there’s a great deal of “posturing “ going on around food choices these days. I’m sure it’s not the case with Mary.

It's an assortment and of the three, the lemon's ingredients include wheat flour.  She didn't try that one.  The presentation came near the end of the show.

Whether she's just gluten-sensitive or celiac, I don't know for certain.  Personally, I'd guess it's the former and when you're on a live TV show it's best not to push the envelope.

I actually thought that Caro looked OK in the TSV dress, except for the shoes - and the color of the dress. It was all wrong because she was one monotone blob. A color would have been better on her, but the dress did seem to fit better than D&C.

If you've seen her website, she came to Q already knowing a lot about the beauty industry and beauty products.  She's said multiple times it's a passion of hers. 

I noticed when she first started solo hosting last month she was pretty much exclusively doing beauty shows, which likely helped build her confidence as she got used to selling stuff on live TV.  At first I thought they were going to pigeonhole her into the beauty shows, but over the next weeks they are going to increasingly give her shows in other categories.
