Never Seen Judith Ripka's Eyes.

Why is she always staring down? I would never buy from someone who can't look into the camera.

She may just be looking into the monitors.

I didn't notice her looking down...she faced the camera and callers through all her times on air....

What a weird thing to say!

OP - have you thought of getting an eye exam? Seriously. I don't watch every Judith Ripka show, but she certainly does look directly ahead and always into the camera when speaking to someone who phones in.

(Or is this just a veiled attempt to bash a vendor you don't like?) {#emotions_dlg.thumbdown}

Sorry, but I agree with the OP. Everytime I tune in, which isn't often because of her outrageous prices for silver and diamonique, she is looking down at the desk.

I believe the times she looks down she is often looking at/admiring or adjusting the jewelry she is wearing. I look at and enjoy my jewelry while I'm wearing it too, especially my Ripka pieces. I think it shows she loves her jewelry, what's wrong with that?

Lots of Ripka fans here who allow no hint of criticism. Just like the WEN/Chaz groupies.

I agree with you!!

And thanks, Sheesh. That ignore button comes in quite handy

Maybe she's like me and she can't see that far.

This response is directly related to the way the OP was responded to and not to the topic or JR at all. It's getting so you can't post a simple statement without being told to "get a life" or some other condescending response. You don't have to agree, but the comeback remarks are far more worse than the OP's statement. An "idiotic slur" was totally uncalled for. {#emotions_dlg.huh}

I can be shy and I certainly don't like cameras directed at me, perhaps she is like me and tho she has to be on TV, maybe the cameras make her uncomfortable....Stardust2, there are other reasons for this than what you insinuated.....

I have always believed that preening is one of the ways women have cornered solitude and kept ourselves sane in this society....Author Unknown

I agree with you -- that could very well be a reason.

I don't know that the OP is insinuating anything, but hey, if she does not want to purchase JR's items for that reason, then that would be her choice.

I agree, too. I rarely watch Ripka, but I watched several shows recently and thought that she doesn't come across well. She does look down a lot. Several times, she didn't want to do a task with the jewelry (like taking off the stand or whatever) and said to the host "you do it". It's odd to watch a professional person do that. I almost feel uncomfortable watching her. Perhaps she is shy on camera.

Sparklestar is right. The responses are often far worse than the the original poster. They like to demonize casual remarks made by OP's.

I do see her look down occasionally when she's adjusting or changing a piece of jewelry. But I must say you really can't see much of her eyes anymore since she had all that face work done. Don't know why because she was always very pretty. She does look great though with her weight loss.

I agree with the OP. I don,t watch when she is on,but turned the Q on the day she was on and stopped to look at the piece being presented. I noticed she was looking down and looked ill. I had seen her do this before at another time. My thought was she acts so snotty like everyone is beneath her. Just my opinion, and I was going to post it, but thought no you are not allowed to give opinions or comments on here, so I am supporting the OP. I agree, I saw what she saw.

You can comment all you want but if its negative the ripkanistas will pull you apart. So get ready!!! LOL I do have some of her pieces which I love but I'm not fanatical. As far as her demeanor or attitude is concerned,I have no comment. I buy things that I love and not because its from a certain vendor.

She is always looking into the camera or the host when he/she is speaking, but I don't see her looking down much at all. She is very polite and friendly with the customers who call in as well. She is very wealthy now, but it always was not the case. She built her business into what it is today. She does not put on "airs" that she is better than anyone else.

I am not a Ripkanista, so I have no particular stake in this claim, other than noticing this is a very odd topic.

The old saying, "when you talk to someone....look them in the eye" has been taken way too far here. Haven't you known people who can look you in the eye and lie through their teeth? What an unkind thing to say about someone you don't really know.

I have noticed that she is very often looking at the monitor. Whether she is looking at herself or the jewelry, she is always gracious and lovely to the hosts and the callers.

Judith has said before that she is very shy on camera. I remember her and Rick discussing her first visit once and she said she couldn't barely speak and Rick had to carry her.

She said she still gets very nervous but she loves her fans so much and hearing from them makes it easier for her.

I couldn't care less if you like her designs or not, doesn't phase me one way or the t'other, but I do not think Judith is shady in the slightest, quite the opposite.

OP...when I read the title to this thread I knew what you meant, and I don't watch the Ripka shows anymore. Quit watching when a magnetic closure bracelet was lost before I even finished paying for it. She does look down ALOT.

She does look down a lot, but not when she is speaking to someone. I think she is looking at moniters or adjusting jewelry. However, I think the OP is just not crazy about JR.

I don't buy much Ripka because it's all starting to look alike to me. However, I have never seen Judith (or her reps) less than gracious.
