Q Did What?

Dan Hughes has to mention 'his wife' in nearly every presentation

I dont' know if others notice this, but he mention his wife in some way in almost every presentation. It's like he wants everyone to know he's married. We get, who cares. I know people always jump on Jane Treacy for mentioning her daughters, but Dan Hughes is not far behind. It is so uncalled for.

And the problem is? I think it's sweet that he mentions his wife often. I don't see this as anything other than a man who clearly adores his wife. I find it refreshing.

He's clearly mentioning his wife so that all the single ladies out in QVC land don't get any funny ideas.

It's a shopping channel selling handbags, make-up and jewelry. He can hardly say "I wear this all the time when I go to my soccer moms' book club", can he? It's just a convenient vehicle for a male presenter to make his sales products appeal to women.

I think Dan went through a divorce a few years back, maybe this is his way of expressing his joy that he has pulled through and is doing well again. Just sayin'...

It's either his wife or his old farmhouse. Actually he used to mention the other one all the time too before his divorce.

What is wrong with a man mentioning his wife? I think it is sweet. Have we become so cynical that this is a bad thing? If so, I think that is very sad.

By the same token, Caroline usually mentions "my husband...." while presenting almost every product. I heard her say it three times already! Once for the Slanket, one for the neck warmer thingy and for some other thing that escapes me now.

I need to switch back to the movie I was watching!

Everyone has their own sales thing or comments as they work. Who cares. It's practically free - or how about the 20 bill alert, can't get any more before the holiday's, on and on.

He must like her! It doesn't bother me much.

Good for Dan...I see no problem with it. I am sure a lot of people relate better to him because of it.

She was on-air with him a couple months ago. I can't remember why. But he said he met her when she was a vendor, so she might have been selling something. I don't know. But I do remember that he made a crack about her being on so that he could prove that he could get such a pretty lady to marry him, or words to that effect.

He did. I think his present wife was the trainer for the dog that was on the morning show. She is there when they have some of the pet product shows, I think. Guess they met at QVC.

Thanks! Yes, that was it. And yes, he did say they met on QVC.

He's probably trying to get rid of all the rumors that he and Pat James were 'carrying on'.{#emotions_dlg.lol}

Why would this bother you? I think its a sweet gesture mentioning his wife seems there are such few happily married people now days and Dan seems like a real nice guy. Most of the hosts mention family Jane T her daughters, Caroline her animals, Lisa M her Gino, Rick his sons I also think that by mentioning their personal lives it makes you think they are more of a "friend" and will buy from you.

His wife is some sort of animal trainer professionally.

He just mentioned his wife again 3 times in the current presentation for the steam mop that's on right now lol.

I remember when he had the hots for Lisa R. when he was between marriages. They hosted the morning show together. That didn't last long.....

Omg Lisa R. could eat off the top of his head he's so short!
