The Q We Love

Antonella Nester

Has Antonella been given less air time? Shawn and Carolyn seem to have multiple shows - and the rest of the hosts are not on as often. Does anyone know why?

Sometimes it goes that way with the TPTB. Maybe these hosts sell the product better then Anton. Or maybe a request from Anton for personnel reason.

I have seen these happen again and again over many years. I don't think it is the hosts at all, it is the Q. THEY schedule hosts and perhaps there are some that if they don't work so many hours in a week they may not have the same benifits that other more popular hosts have. I have seen way more than enough of Jane Tracey. Jill is on enough. Of course Carolyn and Lisa R. Times are tough for us all and especially companies who are still here for US.

I think it has lots to do with sales too. I think Lisa and Rick (in that order) are probably QVC's top selling hosts. Shawn, Jill, David Venable and Jane Treacy (not in any order) are probably high sellers too. In the next batch of high sales.

Maybe I'm being bias because I love Shawn as a host and I don't care for Carolyn but I don't get Carolyn having so many shows. Jill stated in the "Inside Q", magazine not too long ago that she's now a part-time host. Carolyn seems to be getting the benefits of JB working part-time, to me.

I'm not a big fan of Antonella either. I will state that she is in her element doing jewelry shows.

Also, she seems to have quite a sense of humor. AN loves the big hairstyle. Recently while doing a jewelry show she said that a producer or a director was teasing her in her earpiece about her big hair. She told the viewers what he said, "the mafia called and said that they want their hair back".

I thought that remark was totally out of line. The producer I don't think thought she would repeat it to us but that type of joke should be kept behind the scenes. If said at all.

ETA: I was too lazy to check the information I posted about Jill Bauer earlier.

January 2011, issue of "Inside Q", page 44. Jill does not actual state that she is a part-time host but that she has cut her work schedule down from five days a week to four.

I would definately say Antonella has been given less on air time. But we don't know whether she may have requested it.

It seems there are certain hosts we are being "pushed" along more than others.

I am an old member since 1988 and it seems to me back then it was not this way. Kathy Levine was a stand out host but the others all seemed pretty equal in air time. I guess things have changed with new ownership......not always for the better!

I've thought recently it was the JRT network. She has been on all the time.

Personally I enjoy watching Antonella as a host. She makes me laugh. I'd far rather watch and listen to Antonella than Shawn. A little Shawn goes a long way, it's one reason I never watch the saturday morning Q shows. As soon as Leah's show is done, the TV goes off.

I agree. As soon as I hear Shawn's voice at any time, I run for the remote to change the channel!

I too enjoy watching Antonella. I don't find her humor offensive at all. When she was first at the Q, I thought she would be on a great deal but it was not to be. Who knows whether it was her choice or the Qs

Antonella has fun when she works and that is fine with me. She and Ralph had a good time together on the Honora show earlier today and I enjoyed it. Not a lot of gushing and bs like so many other hosts.

I think that's hysterical..and I'm Italian. Her hair reminds me of my older italian aunts in NJ. Why would that joke offend you?

If they gave D&C to Antonella or Jill I would watch it. Can't take CG, sorry, so I choose not to watch.

I like Antonella alot. I have seen her on early in the mornings (real early - EST), so maybe they are just shifting her around different time slots.

I love to laugh and dance......

I have always liked Antonella, I thin she is funny and down to earth. I don't like all the critcism of Carolyn. She is so nice and not full of herself. JRT and Jill use the show

to talk about themselves and their families. Not interested. Antonella come back
