Surprised. Thought it was her hairstyle that turned 60.

...........and if someone can smell your perfume in the elevator you have on too damn much fragrance. Gagging just thinking about it. 

Wearing too much fragrance in the elevator is just as bad as farting in the elevator.

Bwahahahaha!  Thank you for clearing that up!

(I agree with you, though!)

I've heard NestHead with the elevator story before.

And she has other tales of men following her and sniffing.

So you're a man magnet and all you manage to latch on to is Harry?

Oh my, between this and the statement about wearing too much in an elevator, my tummy hurts.

Thank you for the laughs!!

I wonder why Mrs. NestHead doesn't share stories of women asking what she's wearing?  Not appealing enough?  Women are those usually buying it.   If I like a fragrance on a woman, I have no problem asking what she's wearing and I'm not hitting on her.  And over the years, anyone that has ever complimented my perfume were usually women.  While Philosophy fragrances on the other hand, the OAPs say everyone will want to get closer to you and be around you and ask what you're wearing, even kiddies.   Sounds like it's all about sex appeal for Mrs. NestHead.

Mrs. NestHead needs all the sex appeal she can get!  I'm not sure what modern day man looks at her and thinks she's current or sexy.

Is it just me, or is Courtney K becoming more and more shrill?   I just flicked by Q2, and I had to turn down the volume because she was not only talking so loud, but very fast.  She sure wasn’t like that when she was doing her overnight shows.  

Does anyone know how tall Courtney K is?  She was standing next to Graver’s fav model(forgot her name), and she looked like she came up to her armpit.

My theory is regardless of price , Jane has taste for shit, and no amount of money will cure that. If you have good taste and know what suits you, you can shop almost anywhere and find a nice outfit. JMO.

I totally agree she has strange/distorted taste. Also she has diarrhea of the mouth telling how she drove around l day looking for a Christmas tree and her daughter ordered non-qvc shoes that had to be returned. She is seemingly at the Q every day, can't she just order what she needs from the products she sells and sees there? She knows every move her girls make so a last minute need for work shoes is not to be believed (Rush order). I call BS on many of her tall tales.

Yes, she's 5'2 1/2". Overnights, she reminded the viewer of this every two minutes.

Can I just say it? I’m sick of Tova! Tired of her moldy old Hollywood stories, tired of Ernie’s picture propped next to her, tired of her cadaver-like appearance and Bride of Frankenstein hair. Time for her to go home and count her money.

She needs to stay, continue to make money for her frequent “visits” to the plastic surgeon. 

That hair has to go! I think she should go real short crew style with bleach blonde hair. Maybe a leather jacket with studs. 

Yes. That will do.

Tova reminds me of the lady on HSN who sells perfume and face creams  (can't remember her name).  Of a certain generation of "ladies;" maybe she appeals to some.  I sort of luv that they are strong, independent businesswomen!   The HSN lady does not go the Ernie love route, though!  (Her husband was murdered by Andrew Cunanin (sp?); so sad.)

Tova took full responsibility for the pregnancy of the model who always did her beauty demos on QUK. The model once claimed that Tova Nights had been what drove her husband into a frenzy of desire which 9 months later resulted in a bouncing baby. Clearly a crock of bullshit, the girl was about 22 and would not be wearing Tova perfume. And certainly with the amount she repeatedly sprayed in the demos she must have smelt bloody awful by the time she got home to hubby. 

However Tova milked this anecdote for YEARS. The baby is probably a teenager now and right up until the last few rancid old bottles of Tova Nights were sold in clearance she was trotting our the baby story. 

Not any more though. It’s been ovah for Tovah beauty for ages. She just does the occasional Eek! show these days. 

 

*eek! = diamonique

I'm really beginning to appreciate our male newbie from across the pond.

During one of Greg Lawrence's patented "puppy fur" comparisons, Anthony Heywood paused, repeated "puppy fur" very slowly as if he couldn't believe a man would actually say that, and gave Lawrence the side-eye.

Mama Gendel looks “rode hard and put away wet” with that harsh makeup. And, you know, nothing’s going to attract younger viewers like those giant granny panties - not! I’m 66 and wouldn’t be caught dead in them!

Okay. So I have a friend who watches QVC to relax and to buy clothes. I've bought some exercise equipment from QVC. That's it.   When I'm over, I hate-watch while she watches in earnest. I don't know the names of models or most OAPs or hosts. I know the main older ones. I do know Rene-Women-With-Control (and her shtick) because sometimes I read all the pearl-clutching on the QVC board.  Good for a laugh. Boy these people can be ridiculous. Last night, the host was showing some WWC pants and she said you can wiggle and jiggle in them. LOL. Rene couldn't correct her fast enough. NO WIGGLE OR JIGGLE!

Did anyone catch any of Stacey’s cooking show on Q2 last night ? I saw some of it, and she was quite good. She actually did some cooking, and seems comfortable in the kitchen

Can't they get rid of Mary and finally let Stacy do something beside standing behind David?

Ant looks great today. Her hair looks so much better - softer, and she doesn’t have those heavy bangs. I hope she keeps this style and ditches that awful bob she’s been sporting.

I think many viewers relate to her because:

a) she is the spawn of Diva

b) she has an asexual vibe that never strays into bedroom, swimming pool, fireside romance (gasp) territory. She's just a good old girl/boy. She makes neither the viewers nor the executives have tingles in their pee-pee parts.

c) she constantly downplays herself, her abilities, her resources (rare among all the big braggers at the Q).

d) she plays all ages. Aw shucks I just don't know what I'm doing! Aw shucks I been haunting these halls for decades! Which version makes you order more food I supposedly can't eat?

e) she loves her mama and daddy (a veteran don't you know), the U S A and most importantly...see point "a".

Well, “Down Home with David” opened with the set of Campanelli microfiber dusters, a product that’s been presented umpteen times on the Q. Yawn. David’s in a buffalo plaid flannel shirt. Is this supposed to make him “down home”?

I thought maybe it was the coffee cup he was wandering around with in the opening.  YAWN.  Backed to my DVRd episode of Botched.

Greg's going to have to come up with a more manly but still G-rated simile when working at least with male hosts, in order to stop looking like a complete (or a more complete) fool.

Bad enough that he's always using that soft-as-puppy-fur-or-kitten's-ass comparison with the female hosts. 🐕🐱

I have always said that Jane does her makeup for the long shots, and therefore looks way overdone in the closeups, but geeeesh that green eyeshadow! That is just too much.

Why are they doing closeups on her anyway? Oh, maybe because it’s a shoe show but instead of selling shoes she is talking talking talking about who knows what. Oh, Jane.

New Host Impressions Thus Far:

Ant-o-ny: Clearly the most proficient.  Whether you like him depends upon if you dig the accent or not; and there is a bit of porn producer smarminess about him.

Ali: Really good voice. One morning I caught her in profile and with the hair, thought what is Sandra doing on at 3 am?  Monitor progress. 

Rachelle : Lots of hair.  Mally-like extensions.  All I got with her.  She's so barely impressionable. 

NuNuCourtney: Cute.  Looked good in a Graver show I caught, acts like Courtney I.  With that blonde Graver rep there was lots of high pitched giggly squealing. At 4 am....I don't know

Terri Conn : Not having seen her as an actress,  but knowing she was one, I don't believe anything she says.  She can recite the script with earnest.  Don't particularly like.

Katrina: She's my favorite thus far and has promise.   I can tell she has a sense of humor.  Still flubs on occasion. My favorite: "This item has optional free shipping".  Yes please,  I'll take that.

Exactly. The other thing that annoys me is the verbiage that they use, terms like "Hot Pick", "Top Value", "Special Value". I call BS on all that. I use to think there were good values on gold and silver jewelry 25 years ago when I first started watching. The quality and value are just not there now.

Since I'm on a rant, I can hardly stand to watch PM style. First, I would like to know what the size demographic is of the majority of Q customers. Typically, they parade out four models plus Any Shtran (who can't even pronounce her own name) who are all wearing the Extra Extra Small. Then, Ellen takes one for the size 10 gals (though Ellen is 5'10" and looks quite slender in a 10). Finally they usually have one slightly chubby short model for the petite girls. I can't believe that line-up is indicative of their customer base.

THIS!!!!!!!!!!

The other thing that annoys me is the verbiage that they use, terms like "Hot Pick", "Top Value", "Special Value".

Hope you can see me giving you a standing ovation Potato  Chips  -How did you get into my brain! All of your rants are what I'm thinking. makes me feel much better.
