I like Albany. I think she's funny and I've really enjoyed the few shows I've seen her host. I wish she did more prime time shows.

I sometimes think that all of the presentations are too chatty or talky.

 

I chalk it up to too much coffee being served backstage.

 

But Albany seems to be a nice person. Maybe trying a bit too hard at times. If you watched the Miss USA pageant this evening, I think sometimes a combo of nerves and needing to talk a lot can get a lot of people into trouble.

 

Maybe they ALL just need to calm down a little. And maybe the the presentations of each piece might be too long - causing more need for more extended or unnecessarily chit-chat which can ultimately lead to anyone saying too much or saying something that winds up bugging people.

 

Despite it looking easy, I could not imagine sitting there for hours talking and talking and talking about certain items. And sometimes 30 minutes or even an HOUR on one item is just waaayyyy too long to present something AND talk about it.

 

After all, even a nice blouse...even a really nice blouse...is just collar and sleeves after a while.

 

"Oh, there are buttons! Let's COUNT them!" lol

 

I really don't know how they do it. So I sort of cut some of the hosts a break on that angle alone.

If she's the pretty redhead who is really vivacious, I like her when I see her.  I mostly watch shows I'm interested in and somehow she hasn't hosted those or I'd remember her more.

Thank goodness the simple answer to your question is a big, fat NO. I love surfk's posts. They're smart and very witty, two things we can never have a surfeit of around here.

Like it or not there are a lot of folks out there who do not mind her flirting and dirty talk. I agree all the Q cares about is how much she's selling or she would be gone.

Such a wonderful day (still morning here) with Gabrielle on with Isaac.

The show is so pleasant,  low-keyed and easy on the ears, even bought a new jacket from Isaac.

 

Yeah!!!! No Screaming today!!!!!!
