I never thought I'd ever get the chance to appear on QVC. My aunt Bevy swears by it and when I first found out I was going to be on, my mom put out an all points bulletin in South Florida. So today at 1pm, I'll have seniors all the way from Boca to Boynton tuning in for my big debut.
While preparing for my eight minutes in the spotlight, I've been watching a lot of QVC and I have to say those hosts are amazing. I was thisclose to purchasing an HP touch screen computer and monitor last weekend and then realized I already have five computers in the house and we're only a family of four. Then I happened upon a segment on sheets and comforters and as I sat on my ratty quilt thought, hmmm, that pastel blue satin down spread with the 1000 thread count matching sheets would look divine in my bedroom.
Just the other day, I was watching a pilates machine segment that lets you do all your exercises lying down while lengthening your limbs and giving you a six pack all in one. Plus, it's so narrow I can slide it under my bed, which is now draped with my brand spankin' new comforter.
Then there was one of my favorite people on the planet, Laura Geller who was selling her make-up on Friday and it looks amazing - 10 colors in one palette - what a steal! Laura is a QVC veteran btw - she's on like 20 times a month and told me her car can pretty much drive on auto pilot to their studios in Pennsylvania.
Over the weekend, I caught another exercise segment. This time it was for a Reebok treadmill that burns tons of calories and even sets up a meal plan for you. In fact, if per chance you just ate a donut, you can enter in the number of calories you just consumed and it will figure out how far you need to go to burn it off. Now, if I had three glasses of wine, how far would I have to walk to burn those calories? Or is it too dangerous to drink and do the treadmill at the same time.
Let's not forget all those jewelry segments. Or the clothes. Or the handbags!!! I watched a 30 minute dedication to Jackie Onassis reproduction jewels and almost bought a pair of thermal underwear while slipping into my winter uniform - DKNY tights, stretch pants and cozy sweater.
Before I confess any more QVC purchases, I better get ready for my close-up. In a few more hours, I will be standing in one of those gorgeous QVC living rooms. If you want to check out my segment tune into Keep it Clean at 1pm. I'm going to be introducing an exclusive cleaning item by Swiffer and I'm hoping they're going to fly off the shelves and into people's homes!
So without further ado, if you happened to miss my QVC debut, no worries, let's go to the videotape! Just make sure you click on video when you see the SweeperVac on the screen. And then, if you want to place an order...well go right ahead!
