Pat James-DeMentri

I am curious, it may not be my business but I really like Pat but never get to watch her she is on so early!

Why is she the only host who seems to have the luxury of having the same schedule, I never see her nights or weekends as with the other hosts, wonder why.

Good question.

In addition, I thought she was divorced, yet she wears rings on her left ring finger. It was a horrible ordeal as I remember

She must have an excellent agent negotiating her contracts.

WOW!!!
They aren't living in an evidence-based world.<

I think she's just keeping the lowest profile possible.

I think she's at a perfect time. I am sleeping. I am sure she is nice and all, but her hosting skills are not up to par for a veteran.

Maybe she only works part time. Could also be seniority.

JRT, Dan W. and Dan H. work all different shifts, holidays and weekends. (been there the longest, I think)

It's weird she doesn't work weekends. I just don't think she could sell a whole lot in prime time like Lisa R.

How many days a week does PJD work in the am show?

She has been there forever, remember when she was a Q model? After she had her daughter, she said she was going to cut way back on her hours..

She used to be a really good host. I don't know what happened.

Does a part time employee there get all the health benefits and perks? Anyone know someone there?

Maybe there is a reason she doesn't work nights? Her former DH seems to have an anger problem.

you mad bro?

I stopped watching her, and cackling, and grunting Jayne, and the couch Twitter person long ago. Keep her, and her azzzzzz wellllllllls on early while I am still sleeping.

I have been watching the Q since 2001 ish and I can't watch her for very long. She has limited vocabulary and doesn't describe the items well.

I used to watch her many years ago. I cannot watch or listen to Jayne so I am happy that they are on before we are up on the West Coast.

Thanks for all the replies, I just knew last I really watched her it was her Dan and they always had a dog on with them...cute dog.

She used to host the four hour gold shows many moons ago and did a great job.

It seems like she's been on the Morning Show forever and ever and hosts little else.

That pathetic ex-husband and divorce seemed to change Pat and she's not the same PJD she was before all the trauma. Hope happiness finds her once again.

Many divorced women wear a ring for a reason.

She did the 18K gold evening shows. She lives in NJ, a distance from QVC. When she returned from her maternity leave, she must have negotiated that she would only work certains hours.

Pat and Jane have not been so silly on the morning show the last couple times I watched. I don't think Pat is all that good as a host anyway; Jane can be very good when she keeps her attention on the product. I have seen times where it was Pat who started the giggling,not Jane, .

While her hours appear to be great - 7 to 9 am Monday through Friday - I believe has mentioned that she gets up around 3 am and is at the studio for hours before and after her shift. I've often wondered if she has a live-in nanny since she must leave her daughter in the middle of the night to go to work.

I don't know what other veterans (other than Dan H) start their work day at 3 or 4 in the morning. Being a divorced/single mother, her priority in her contract negotiations is probably more hours and days, security and benefits than financial compensation.

I really like Pat -and I prefer her on her own- I think she is wonderful with guests.

Be kind to dragons, for thou art crunchy and good with ketchup.

I think you all answered your own question...........the powers that be probably feel that's her best fit.

I like her....in fact, she may be my favorite host. I think her hosting style makes her seem more "down-to-earth" and like someone to whom I could relate.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass.....it's about learning to dance in the rain.
