I really enjoy Barry Ort when he is on with the KJL jewelry. I have noticed that some hosts try to compete with his personality and chattiness and it becomes distracting. I do wish that the hosts would talk and interrupt less with the very informed vendors such as Barry.
I love Barry Ort too! I really look forward to all KJL shows because of his joie de vivre! I look forward to the 2013 shows... More faux pearls and sparkles please!

From your lips to Q's ears.
I like Barry, but I miss Kenneth.

I think Kenneth is in very poor health. He was coughing all the time when they did have him on-air.
Barry is priceless, one of the few that i consider a true viewing treat............
I loved to watch Kenneth as well, but Barry is the BEST I've ever seen. He is funny, clever, and VERY knowledgable, and not just about KJL jewelry. I would love to go to lunch with him!!! ;-)

Barry loves to chat ( his personality is what makes him so fun to watch), Albany kept putting her two cents in, Barry had to correct her several times. It would have been better if Barry did most of the talking and the host interject only when needed.
I enjoyed Kenneth, but must admit, I adore Barry! He is such a hoot, yet so knowledgeable! Like has been said, he's a viewing treat. I'd love to know him in person.
You were born an original - don't die a copy.
I used to love Kenneth and Jane together, he had such a dry sense of humor and Jane played off it so well. Barry is so fun to watch, love it when he is on!
I absolutely agree. I love Barry! He is a treasure. I really enjoy his stories, fashion advice and history about the jewlery he brings to us. There is one host who is more of a late night early morning host that always interrupts him. In her eagerness to get her selling time in she takes away from the presentation and comes across as rude and overbearing. Please let Barry talk. He and the pieces will sell themselves if he is given the opportunity!

I think Barry is one of the most knowledgeable and entertaining reps on the Q. He should win one of those "Best Vendor" awards! I would also love to have lunch with him as he is a hoot!
I love watching Barry present the jewelry
He cracks me up when he tells us he has secret gossip and tells us anyway
I enjoyed the shows when he was working with Lisa Mason. They are truly friends and had such a good rapport during the shows. Miss tht Lisa!!!!
I think KJL is the best you can get in costume jewelry...I miss Kenneth but Barry does a great job for him. He could host his show completely alone that would be great viewing.
