In my opinion, the Q is lucky to have Louis. I hope that Rachel was reprimanded for her bizarre behavior, but sadly, I doubt that she was because we see this type of behavior again and again.

I recorded the show to watch when I got home and wasn't expecting her to host so unfortunately had to fast forward when she started up.  At that hour she must have forgotten to take a chill pill.

Louis Dell Olio is QVC's best designer. Rachel stepped on his words throughout hurrying him along.  Carolyn was much more gracious.  Louis is well spoke and I love to hear his descriptions of his clothing.

Several Linea Fans were not happy that Rachel implied in a Blog she wrote about her trip to NYC (Sept. 27th) that someone other than Louis does the designs, fabric selection etc for Linea -


" In fact, Elaine Lai produces clothes for several brands including Linea by Louis Dell’Olio, Quacker Factory, and Joan Rivers. Each piece goes through multiple steps before we see the finished product. There’s a sketch, color decisions, fabric selections, body creation, pattern making, sample production, specification adjustments, and production (this is a loose translation…lol). All of those steps are necessary for every single garment!!! Now you know why pieces take at least 3 ½ months to come back in stock! "

Didn't see the show with Louis, but just saw the show with Dennis B.  Rachel would not let him talk!!!  She kept cutting him off and spoke very teacher-like to him. Almost as if she was reprimanding him!  Did not enjoy the show....
