Comparing someone who doesn't care for dirty nails to a racist is rich.

Seems as though many of the more tenured hosts have started packing on the pounds.  Not too surprising since it's a struggle we all face.

I don't find the OP's comment rude at all.  Realistic perhaps but not rude.  I find that people here have a skewed definition of rudeness.

I find all shape wear very painful in my lower back, so I won't wear it. The compression fabric isn't designed to be selective. Also, very little stays in place. It rolls and rides up. Lastly, my bustline is far more generous than any shapewear can handle, even the ones with "cutouts for bras."

That and any non-breathable fabric causes a massive skin reaction.

I agree that it should be a requirement for a host to be clean and well put-together; however, I do not think hosts need to be thin and "lump and bump-free".  Whereas I think I look fine when I stand still in front of a mirror, sometimes when I catch my reflection in a mirror while I'm in motion, I am shocked and the rolls that seem to pop up in my mid-section!  I am 61 yrs old! Normal size, not thin or heavy. They are just part of the body at this stage, like it or not. And I would hate to think I have to be in spanx just to please others!


Love this. We are so obsessed with being a thin-centric society while deluged with obesogenic lifestyles. The normal, average and healthy woman is neither a mannequin nor a clothes hanger. And why should we have flat bellies? A woman's abdomen houses so many more organs than a man's does. Why smoosh them as though ashamed? The original statues of Venus and Aphrodite were not of skinny chicks. They were of voluptuous females with full, rounded bellies.

Okay,a little off topic, but when they present food,especially bbq ribs and chocolates,all the food under their fingernails kind of grosses me out. I wonder what they do with all the food they pick apart during a show???? Nevermind, David V. is in the house!!! LOL, I like David so don't attack me :-)

I think the worst is all the wild different color nails. They should be in a soft color so not to take away from the jewelry or what ever they are handling, like food. The hosts always look good. Some odd clothing mixture a few have. Need to be professional.

They are sales people not your best friend. A few should have a speech coach. There seems to be no standard what is required on how they look or act. Like throwing a expensive hand bag when sold out. Real classy!!

Some "opinions" are better off left unsaid and kept to yourself.  The fact that it's an opinion and your entitled to it does not mean you have to broadcast it, esp if nothing good comes of it.
