Leah and other hosts, and QVC, enough already that Oprah is on the cover wearing NYDJ Jeans

Leah, Kerstin, other hosts and QVC, enough already stating that Oprah is on the August cover of O magazine wearing these jeans!!!! It is ridiculous, so far today both hosts have said Oprah at least 20 times, it is liking hearing Jane Tracy and the stupid FRIYAY a hundred thousand times. 

 

You must think that because a celebrity wears jeans that is reason enough to purchase. You must think your customers are stupid.  It is not the case.  As a matter of fact, broadcasting as a selling point that Oprah is on the cover wearing the jeans is a reason why I would not purchase as well as others.  I feel it is an insult.  I was surprised how many times Leah mentioned Oprah, my respect for her diminished this morning

Maybe they are being told to mention it

When I was in sales they told us to mention things over and over.

Totally agree! I had it this morning in my car on the way to work and Kerstin was almost down right screaming OPRAH! The fawning over another human being is absurd!

 

Wonder if O is getting a cut of the sales of these jeans today???

Because there are people that will purchase because Queen Oprah likes it.  Be glad you're stronger than them.  It's just like those Jamie Foxx glasses constantly being promoted.  I mean if you think about it, their promoting this  brand because Jamie wanted a quality pair of sunglasses that "we" can afford.  Ha ha ha.  Because he has such a hard time purchasing good sunglasses on his income.  This tactic of promoting a product with a celebrity name has been going on in every category.  How many cooks who had TV shows are promoting a line of cookware with their name.  And can I say Martha Stewart. 

 

But you can't blame the hosts because that's their job.  You can only blame you for putting yourself in the position of watching it.

No...they don’t think their ‘customers are stupid...’,

 

but watching television & in particular 1 channel, long enough

to hear one word being said ‘at least 20 times’ might be a concern. 

 

Get out, enjoy the sunshine, breath some fresh air. 

Play among the 3 dimensional people!

 

And yes, if wondering,  I’m writing this while sitting outside.

Oprah is not a selling point for me. She makes that stupid “list” every year and clearly they are just paid advertisements. They attach her name to a number of things like Korres, Foot Nanny, Carols Daughter. Who cares, Oprah is richer than god and probably does use nor care about any of these things. I agree OP I heard her name dropped a lot today.

I wouldn't blame the hosts.

I'm sure it is the same mgmnt/producers that tell the hosts to act like they are in their own academy award show and yell and talk as loud as they can!

Still, I don't care if Oprah wears them but why in the world would I spend 80 plus dollars for jeans when I have the best jeans I've ever worn from Gloria Vanderbilt and Riders-both less than $20.

But as we all say, its your money, spend it like you want.

It's kind of like reading the constant complaints from the same posters.  Instead of removing themselves from the situation, they just keep engaging in the thing they don't like and makes them angry, bitter, and just plain grumpy.
