Long story short, we just realized that we have ShopNBC on our Comcast channel lineup. We are off Fridays, and spent much of that day last week and Saturday checking out ShopNBC’s Tucson jewelry event.
We were pretty impressed with ShopNBC’s offerings and picked up two dainty items in our new favorite gemstone, black spinel.
We tuned in for the Saturday night finale of Tucson with host Kendy Kloepfer and Jersey jewelry maven Chuck Clemency, and by the end of the show we wished we could have blasted Kloepfer out of our TV set.
First of all, we are huge advocates of celebrating your birthday and proudly proclaiming your birthday. That said, we wanted to muzzle Kendy. She would not stop telling Chuck, and viewers, that her birthday was Sunday (or was it today, Monday? Guess we blanked it out).
If we had a drink every time she mentioned that her 50th birthday was almost here, we’d have been dirty drunk.
Next, maybe facing a midlife crisis, Kendy told Chuck about a man who got very friendly with her at her son’s hockey game. She all but said that he hit on her. And she repeated that comment again and again, adding that her husband was getting jealous and agitated and was ready to take on the randy spectator.
Give us a break, Kendy. Next time your husband should give you a dressing down for flirting with strangers right in front of his eyeballs.
It was a thoroughly annoying ShopNBC segment, and we put the TV on mute a couple of times to make it tolerable. Kendy said she was going to Costa Rica, and with any luck she’ll stay.
By the way, Jewelry Television is the king of black spinel. ShopNBC has some selection, and QVC has a bit. But JTV’s assortment and prices for black spinel are unsurpassed.
