Jane has just announced that in less than 49 minutes she’ll be hosting a show that will include her home movies from the 50s and 60s!!

She has become pathetic. She is looking worn; like that woman who’s been coming there so long, she has her own stool at the end of the bar. 

"Oh ma gosh"!! How many times does she say that? And I don't like her hair, it's way too curly......

Meanwhile, as I'm doing a Jane impersonation today (chatty, chatty, chatty), does she have something written into her contract that allows her to show the same home videos at certain times of the year?

After all, it's a truth not universally acknowledged but generally acknowledged that most people, even relatives, don't care about your home videos.

Poor Blabbly, trying way too hard to be relevant and liked.  How many times are they going to let her show those home movies?! I just happened to tune into QVC when she was showing them.  Love the shade being thrown by Martha and Alex.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, Diva overuses the word "opportunity".  I counted 4 times within minutes.

I follow her on Instagram.....she shares a bit there.  For instance, she ruptured her Achilles tendon back in June, wanted it to heal on her own, it didn't, so she had surgery at the end of June.  As far as I can tell, she isn't allowed to walk or put any pressure on that foot yet, although she's graduated to a couple of different types of casts.

She also posted on one of her Instagram stories in the last day or two that MTV Cribs is coming back and her house is one of the ones being featured.  Which one?  Don't know!

She has two Instagram accounts.....one is a bit more "company" related the other is somewhat more personal though still has company related marketing on it.

https://www.instagram.com/marthastewart48/

https://www.instagram.com/marthastewart/

I was going to check out Martha on Instagram and I couldn’t log in. Wouldn’t take my password. So I decided to change it. When they said they were sending me the message to change it, they showed coded parts of my supposed email address. Wasn’t mine!  Last letters were .ru. Hm. So I tried to log on via FB and Instagram said my account was shut down or whatever. And I had 30 days to request a review!  WTF.  I rarely even go there but perhaps someone hacked it?  Whoever said this Internet shit was easy was lying.

I've discovered that one of the most entertaining shows for me is when Mary Beth hosts Gourmet Holiday. 

I'm always surprised at what she never saw, heard of, tried, or tasted.  She gasps in the discovery!

Her diet seems to consist of the pork, beef, cheese and lemon bar food groups!

Jane takes the Q directive of using "storytelling" as a sales tactic to a whole other level.

I think as well that she honestly believes that talking about her 20-something kids, especially the one who lives in NYC, and tying them into the products she's selling (Oh, this would work great in her studio apartment!  She loves these shoes!) will encourage customers to buy the same stuff for their kids or grandkids, since those kids and grandkids surely aren't watching QVC.  Maybe get some new, younger customers if they like what mom, auntie, or grandma bought them and check Q out for themselves, online.

I respectfully disagree. 

IMO, she’s a narcissistic ass.

Jill's Response:

well, I’m not just selling “stuff.” I love having control of my time, my life, and choosing what I share. It’s more authentic. It’s more me. I hadn’t planned on starting an e-commerce site…but things came together and it felt right. And I still enjoy checking out QVC, so why not share what I find? I guess in the end, my question back to you is , what does it matter? I’m happy, enjoying life and hope you are enjoying the contents down products I’m sharing. Have a great day!

Indeed she can.  While the poster could have worded her question in a less combative way, I understand her comment.  When QVC hosts leave the Q, they then rely on the Q's customer base to follow them on their next journey.  Without the Q's customers, Jill would not sell much from her couch. Furthermore, she made it sound like she was going on to a "second act," and is basically doing the same job just in a different environment.

Mama Mancini's grandson did a good job, solo, on Q2.

No Alberti.

No Rachel.

No agita.

He did mention them, saying Alberti gave him a simple, delicious recipe to use with Mama's meatballs.  And, apparently, Rachel was hysterically laughing on the last show because, she said, the meatballs were the best she's ever had.

Glad she managed to twist her clowning into a compliment, as Daniel seems very serious about the quality of his products, but who laughs maniacally when some food pleases his or her tastebuds?

I just had a very tasty salad, but not a chortle, guffaw, or cackle crossed my lips while eating it.

Good point.  A person can't have social media both ways.  Post personal stories and examples of family, dogs, and illnesses and then cop out to a poster with "What's it to you?"  I will give Jill credit for her self-promotion skills because according to her, she has discovered candles, bracelets, and pottery never seen before.
