I seldom watch QVC when she was on .... didn't she mostly do the early am show?

Anyway, now you have my curiosity going. Did they mention her, or have you noticed that she's just gone without a mention?

I also wonder when/why Steve Bryant left. I know I've seen him in those two infomercials lately, one with Esteban, and one with the Ronco rotisserie gizmo.

Hi...I heard a caller ask about Pat the other day...and I think the answer was, she is on "an extended vacation".

Steve left a long time ago...wanting to get back into the music business....I am thinking that didn't work out for him because I have seen him on those same infomercials.

According to a message board I lurk on, Pat had plastic surgery. She was gone for a couple of weeks and did come back last week but obviously had not healed yet. Apparently her face was still very swollen. She was only back the one day. Then a few days later a caller asked where she was and the other host said she was still on vacation. I rarely watch QVC anymore and never the morning show so I don't know if that is true or not, but it was also discussed on the QVC message board so maybe it is.

On that Shop At Home tv channel one of the hosts is looking like twenty years younger-she sales alot on the makeup shows and supposably it is the moisturizers she uses-I don't believe for one whit. This is a woman in her mid fifties and looked it who suddenly is looking like she is around 30. She had to have had a facelift. Now to me Pat still looked good- I know she is hitting her late forties but she did not look like it-she could pass for 35 any day-so I don't understand why she would feel the need for a face lift.

One thing I noticed too is those lifts don't last. I know Dixie Carter had one while on Designing Women and she looked great but before that show ended she looked like she aged twenty years-seems to me you look even worse in a couple of years if you don't keep getting those lifts. Same for Paul McCartney-heard he got one after he met Heather but I saw a picture of him recently he looked really OLD-he is in his early sixties and just a year or so back he looked like he was no more then 35-but in this recent picture he looked more like 75.

I thought I saw her the one day she came back on - then she was gone again. Sometimes I have the Morning Show turned on while I'm getting ready for work. Kind of figured they got rid of her since all she does is the morning show and Susan Graver!

Wonder what she had done. I always thought she was pretty.

Boy, I surely don't think she was in her late 40's, maybe, maybe she was in her mid thirties... I'm just guessing. I always thought she was very pretty also.

I'm 48, and I certainly don't need a facelift! http://messages.cruisecritic.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Something else needs lifting, but not my face!

I think that Pat may be close to forty. Certainly not in her late forties. She looks pretty good, I think. I can't believe that she would be having a face lift, I really don't think that she needs one.

Well, I'm getting ready to have a "mini" face lift next week. I'm 49. I don't think I look awful or am in dire need of one, but I don't want to wait till I look really wrinkled and then everyone will know exactly what I had. Now, I will just look refreshed and good for my age. Not trying to look 21 again, just not so tired looking.

I have no problem with those who enjoy their wrinkles and gray hair. I just want to look as good for my age as I can AND I can afford it. I don't think I'm any more vane than the next person, just more honest maybe??

lszu
April 6th, 2004, 01:18 PM
Not that I'm trying to start something here, but are you insinuating that some one who says they don't want plastic surgery is dishonest? Isn't it possible that some people find natural to be beautiful?

I'd rather look like a real woman than Pamela Anderson any day! And I'm being honest. http://messages.cruisecritic.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I didn't mean to say that people who don't want it aren't honest...I just meant I'm honest enough to admit that I want it. I think I may have worded that thought wrong, I'm sorry about that!

It sometimes seems that some people are so against doing any kind of plastic surgery that they are insulting to the ones who have something done. And I certainly would have NO DESIRE to look anything remotely like Pamela Anderson...she looks like a plastic blow-up doll. But there is a happy medium between looking like her and having a little something done here and there.

I just don't feel there's anything wrong with wanting to look the best you can. If there's a proceedure out there that isn't dangerous and a person can afford it and it will make someone feel better about themselves, I say go for it. It's an personal choice.

lszu
April 6th, 2004, 02:57 PM
At this point Pamela Anderson IS a plastic blow up doll.

O.K. so we all agree that either having it done or not having it done - either way doesn't make you a bad person.

I agree..we all have our own wants in life. Personal Choice...I couln't have said it better!
It was really nice on my last 2 cruises thoughhttp://messages.cruisecritic.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif...I am 46 and a few of the men (and women)thought I was in my mid 30s http://messages.cruisecritic.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif..that is what I call flattering!

And so far I don't see any wrinkles either...but then again Nat..you said it..you can afford the surgery as well...I don't have that kind of $.
I do hope all goes well thoughhttp://messages.cruisecritic.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif!

I had it on this morning running around trying to get to work, but didn't get a good look at Pat. I do think she had collagen injections, too. Either that or her lips are still a little swollen.

Yeah, Judy announced that she's leaving during the Denim & Co. show over the weekend. So far that's Paul, Jane, and Judy. Wasn't somebody else going, too?

Hi,

I saw Pat this morning also - and I thought her
lips looked different.

I hate to see Judy go I kind of liked her presentations.

Kim Parrish did leave a while back.

What I was going by when I said Pat James Dementri's age was in her late forties was something she said many years ago around the late eighties on QVC. (yes QVC has been on that long-they were on when CVN was on-QVC just bought out CVN) She said she had graduated from high school in 1973. At that time she would have been in her early thirties and not ashamed to admit her age. The only reason I remember this is I graduated high school in 1972 so I assumed that made her a year younger then me and I turn fifty this July. So Pat looked really great for her age-she could easily pass for 30-35. She did not need a lift.

Anyway the problem with lifts is they only last 2 or 3 years and then you look worse then ever. So once you start this you need to keep getting the lifts if you want to look good. Even if you have millions who wants to have to have surgery every couple of years.

I don't know where you got your info on face lifts, but it is not correct. Your skin certainly begins to age again when the face lift is done, nothing will stop time. But you do not look worse than if you hadn't had it done and you do not need repeat lifts. I know many women, including my mother and mother in law who have had one face lift, both in their mid 50's...now they are in their late 70's and they both look very good.

And who are you to pass judgement on whether someone does or does not need a face lift? That's for each individual to decide based on how they feel about themselves, not on what YOU feel about them.

momofmeg
April 14th, 2004, 07:35 AM
natdon- I was not passing judgement anymore the LoisR was -just expressing my opinion. If you read my earlier post on this topic I was talking about Paul McCarntey and Dixie Carter. Both had facelifts done-looked REALLY good and then 2 or 3 years later looked worse then BEFORE they had the facelift.

I have NOTHING against cosmetic surgery. If I could I would have a tummy tuck and liposuction. I just don't have the extra $$$ for that as I am ordinary middleclass turning 50 and need more to worry about the fact I may make it to 90 as my grandmother did and don't want to be a finanicial drain on my daughter.

Yes I do understand those who have jobs exposed to the world feel this need but honestly I thought Pat looked great. I watched her this morning and yes her eyes look younger but I agree with the other post-her lips are a little too full but then I am a WOMAN and it is men who are attracted to the fuller lips. Anyway Pat is beautiful but she was already.

This is what I want to say-Pat if you should read this you look gorgeous but honestly I truly felt you were gorgeous already. I have always admired your beauty and wished I looked HALF as good as You did before your surgery. I sure did not mean to give the impression though that you should not have had your surgery. You are the one in the public eye not me so how could I judge you?

Lois- I just try to be nice when I post. I can't stand some of these sarcastic posters I find on all messageboards. I go out of my way to be nice AT LEAST I TRY but if I express an opinion I am told I am being judgemental.

Just not true maybe envious but not in a bad way. It was just hurtful that someone could take and twist what I said.

I have never found anything offensive in your posts-and I only mentioned you because someone had blasted you also-when I thought you had said very nice things.

One thing I do feel though is we never know who reads these posts and I would do nothing to offend Pat or anyone else. I guess that is the real bad thing about being in the public eye-that people get on places like these boards and talk about you as if they knew you personally.

Do you remember Kathy Levine? She is on HSN now selling a line of clothes and jewelry. She looks really good-a lot prettier. I don't think she had a facelift though-looks more like she is getting more rest-anyway she looks really good and this is a woman in her fifties I know.

natndon
April 14th, 2004, 02:23 PM
I'm sorry if I was sarcastic. I know I"m a little touchy on this subject. As I stated before, I'm getting a "mini" face lift tomorrow. I've had to defend myself to a few people who think it's terrible or that I've lost my mind, so I've gotten a little defensive on the subject. I try not to pass judgement on anyone's life but I have some family members who seem to think it's their duty to direct mine.

This is just something I"m doing for myself. It's not a big deal and I'm using money I"ve earned and saved.

Don't be so sure Kathy Levine hasn't had a face lift. A good lift is one that makes the person look more "rested", not all tight and stretched like Joan Rivers. I haven't seen her on HSN, but I used to just love her on QVC...her mother too.

Please accept my apologies...I didn't mean to offend.

Nat...and Mom.....ok...lets move on http://messages.cruisecritic.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif...I understand when on the internet things can get taken the wrong way...we cannot see each other.

Anyway..thanks Mom for your explanationhttp://messages.cruisecritic.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I appreciate it...and Nat, thanks for the apology. http://messages.cruisecritic.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif..and I hope everything turns out the way you want.

I have seen Kathy on HSN...and (remember this is just my opinion)...I never liked her to start with...well, maybe when I first saw her..but she ended up grating on my nerves.

Oh one story about facelifts....and this is someone in my family...my dad's sister-in-law...my uncle has been gone since I was in 6th grade...anyway...she would be my aunt...this woman has had more facelifts than anyone could ever want http://messages.cruisecritic.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif...I mean it...she is probably about 85 now...well, over the years...she has this tucked, that nipped, this done...YIKES!!!....I remember when my nephew and neice met her (after they got married) I suppose that was about 15 years ago....well, they weren't sure what they were looking at...I know that sounds horrible...but I guess she thought everything would make her look younger....NOT... http://messages.cruisecritic.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif. (my nephew is my sister's son)...neice is his wife...and she had never met my Aunt before!
Her skin is so streched...lets put it this way, Michael Jackson would look pretty good standing next to my Aunt http://messages.cruisecritic.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Maybe the way I expressed my self was because of previous experiences too. My daughter was born with several birth defects and she has had several plastic surgeries. They can only fix so much plus they take tissue from elsewhere that leaves scars. She won't wear a high cut swim suit for this reason as they have taken tissue from her thigh area for these surgeries. Also too-they make you feel these surgeries will "fix" all these things but they don't-you can still tell there has been surgery. We have been told only so much can be done-as I guess Micahel Jackson has learned the hard way. He has ruint his nose and all his millions can't fix it.

Anyway my daughter is a beautiful girl and I know I am prejudiced ofcourse-but she is still very beautiful despite all the little imperfections she was born with-I just wish she could see it.

Our health insurance covered for these surgeries but we would have gladly used our own money if they didn't. Anyway I sure don't want to judge anyone else and I hope your surgery goes well.

"Mom" - I wasn't going to post anything else on this thread hoping it would just go away. I had to respond to you. This is not a judgement of anyone on this board or anywhere else - we are all born with imperfections - some outside, some inside.

You said that your daughter is beautiful you just wish she could see it - one day she will. Having a mother that loves her and supports her will help her understand that. http://messages.cruisecritic.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Oh my goodness. I saw Pat today. She has a permanent "surprise look" on her face. Her appearance is as difference as day is to night.

At first I didn't recognize her. Then I remember reading this post and recognized her voice. I wonder if she was treated by Joan River's MD. http://messages.cruisecritic.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
