I've recently discovered QVC and so I have it on while doing a little work..
There's some enormous queen, someone named Dennis Basso who's allegedly a "high fashion designer" who is shilling some fake fur shit and a bunch of old lady clothes.
This shit MUST be seen to be believed. To say it's like an SNL parody is a major understatement.
Watch for this stud Nate Matatall as the Dell guy when they have a computer hour. He's not the guy they always feature, but he is on quite often and I can't help but picture him shirtless like in this submission to get on the show "the Bachelor."
I can't start threads or I'd think this might deserve a new one.
Right now the guy doing the electronics show on HSN looked so familiar to me I had to go on their website to figure out who he is.
Does the name Brett Chukerman mean anything to anybody? If you've seen "Eating Out 2:Sloppy Seconds," you might know him.
I guess he has been doing more TV hosting than acting lately, and now he's an on-air host on HSN. From what I understand, he's not publicly out, but he sure comes across as very gay.
OP, Dennis Basso is a high-end fur designer. I've seen his stuff in [italic]Vogue[/italic] and on celebrities.
I was watching HSN and they had Snookie from Jersey Shore on hawking cheap purses, slippers, stuffed animals and perfume. It all looked cheap and nasty. The shit sold out.
The shopping stations are hilarious when your high! I often put them on when there's nothing else on or when I'm cleaning just for some giggles.
[QUOTE] It all looked cheap and nasty. The shit sold out.
r4 you did a good job describing Snooki...but what about the products she was hawking? What were they like?
Amen, R5. The amount of hours I must have spent watching that shit stoned in the 00s with my mate in the early hours of the morning.
And then you got Bid Up! TV with that dude who is clearly a (barely) functioning alchy who looks worse every time you see him.
Here he is obviously after enjoying rather too much Glenfiddich.
My little desk TV couldn't receive digital signals til I found another cheap converter. Until then, I only got one channel and it was HSN 24/7 (just something to listen to while I surfed the internet). I now know more about women's clothes and jewelry than I ever thought I would. The mood is unbelievably UPBEAT as they hawk everything like it's the coolest thing ever!
R3, are you talking CURRENTLY in Vogue or are "we" stuck in the 80s?
And who, outside of a few celebrities (who are probably also the ones too stupid to know they shouldn't be performing for dictators), trashy Russians and old yentas still wears fur?
Snooki was on HSN a few days ago selling her crap. I didn't watch it, but from what I read on Twitter, I shouldn't have missed it. She was awful and people felt bad for the host because she had to make that vapid little chinchilla interesting.
She apparently made quite a few bucks. I would love to see the numbers on where most of it was sold.
Rick Domeier is a ridiculously obnoxious host. I guess I like his enthusiasm, but he constantly cuts in when his guest is talking.
Also, how gay is he?
I'm against real fur ,but I bought a Basso faux fur blanket and it is honestly incredible. Its really heavy and it keeps you amazingly warm. Its amazing how real it looks in person too. No I'm not a Frau, an old lady , an old Russian lady, an old queen, sales guy, etc. This guy's products I swear by them and I highly recommend them to anyone.
I'm sorry, but I just HAD to bring back a QVC thread if only because I had no doubt in my mind that the host on air now was gay. His name is Jonathan Redford. My jaw just dropped when they were congratulating him on getting engaged to "Tracey," one of the QVC models.
WTF is that "gay-acting straight" thread because this queen owns it if he's not a closet-case.
Jonathan is a very cute gay. I'm a little shocked when I hear him talk about being engaged too - I didn't know it was to one of the QVC models.
Sounds like what Adam Freeman did from HSN. He transferred from the UK version of HSN a few years back, and relatively quickly married one of the HSN models.
Interesting bearding technique.
So I'll expect an anouncement that Brett Chukermann is engaged to an HSN girl shortly also.
[quote]My jaw just dropped when they were congratulating him on getting engaged to "Tracey," one of the QVC models.
OMG.It's the Jeffrey ([italic]"...thank's for the Jeffrey!"[/italic]) Hewson story all over again.
I'm watching him now and just shaking my head. My eyes popped out like a cartoon character when a caller congratulated him on the engagement.
Here's the future Mrs. Redford (24 years old):
R27, Jeff Hewson was one hot stud back in the day. That whore bitch he married (a co presenter on the channel) should be hunted down and eviscerated. She was an ugly sow and I could never imagine why Jeff would marry the fugly trollop.
David Venable - massive guilty pleasure watching.
QUEENS of the year
Venable used to be so hot. Now he's just a fat ol' queen with a lisp. It's hard to believe he used to look like this. His head alone now weighs a good 100 lbs.
I'm also guilty of watching 3 hours of "In The Kitchen With David" each Sunday morning. I enjoy watching him making his 'oh, yummmmmy' slow-mo (literally mo) dream face as he bites into something edible every 4 minutes -- all while exclaiming, "Fill me up, buttercup," and other frivolities concerning the color yellow. This, unfortunately is what I also do alone every Sunday morning. I think he should fire whoever has been tending his giant hair plug colony, however. I've seen it go from actual plugs to this now woven hair helmet from the House Of Travolta. Why do they think that looks at all natural? Maybe he should just walk about the show wearing a chef's hat, and ditch the mat. He seems like a nice guy, despite the bad judgment in hair.
Lisa R. keeps on packing on the makeup. She has beautiful features but , Jeez, put the eyeliner down for a sec
I want to eat QVC frozen clam chowder out of Dennis Basso's hole
Is David Venebable gay? He sure looks it and acts like it
R26 I just want a big fat black dildo up my ass and one inside my mouth
Yes, David Venable is gay, R36. He has a partner.
Yummy puffed pastry with extra yellow cheese and rice crispy treat stuffing, watch me make it on Sunday!!!
This poor QVC guest host passes out, or comes close to it, twice during her segment earlier this week.
I'm not a regular enough watcher to know Cassie Slane, but I am familiar with Dan Hughes who makes a valiant effort to continue shilling their dumb product without letting the viewers know that Cassie is in trouble. It's not until she starts to lose it a second time that he acknowledges that she needs to sit down.
Apparently she's OK - she posted on her Facebook that it was an issue with low blood sugar and it's happened to her before so it's not entirely unexpected.

Yesterday QVC was selling fake candles in different colors. They kept referring to the orange one as great for "harvest" celebrations. As if anyone ever has a harvest celebration. You know their inbred frau audience freaks out if they dare mention that devil worship holiday 'Halloween'.
Recently one of the shopping channels was selling sparkly women's loafers in bright colors. They sold out very quickly. A woman called in and explained why: old ladies in her nursing home were buying them to lift their spirits. She said the whole nursing home was full of women with these shoes. Makes sense since they probably don't go out much, but still like pretty things.
Shopping channels are really meant for people that can't go to the store. That's why they sell "old lady" clothes. Dennis Basso sells fake fur coats to old ladies. Dressing up is how they get their entertainment. They don't give a shit whether it's in style or not. By the time you're that old, you dress for yourself.
I've been reading a blog lately that's by a young gay guy in NYC, he photographs stylish old ladies he sees in the streets and makes friends with them. He likes their outlook on life. You can't stop getting old, but these old ladies are still having fun.
There's a designer on one of the shopping channels, Iris Apfel, who's about ninety years old. Check her out, she's what everybody hopes they'll be when they're old: old, and still cool in a way younger people can't be.
I turned 50 recently, all I hear is if you're above 50 you can't wear a bunch of stuff, so I was looking for what you can wear without dressing like a teenager or looking like you're already dead. There are old men pictured on the linked site too. Have a look. Like my grandma used to say:
The only thing worse than getting old is the alternative.
I want to dress Dennis Basso in a Quacker Factory Christmas sweater and suck his cock and lick his hole
Is HSN host Aaron Berg gay?
hello ex gay porn star
Rick Domeier is supposedly straight.
Anyone know if he's family?
Any truth to the rumor that Rick Domeier is a cross-dresser?
Yes in Quacker Factory
It's Aaron Berger, r55. I don't think there is any doubt that he's gay, but I've never found anything online that would be confirmation.
He is buddies with his co-worker, the out (at least I think he's out) host Bill Green and has spoken about being over to Bill's house. However he is friendly with several of the other hosts and talks of socializing outside of work with a few.
