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.

Humnnn.....

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.

Next up...HORIZON Sept 18th to Bermuda!

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! 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.

I think Pat is quite pretty too....but who knows what makes people tick.

I'm sure the pressures felt by those in front of the camera are like nothing we could imagine.

As for having things "lifted", never say never!!

hi T good to see you again..I can say never...I don't have the money for any surgery like that.....and even if I did...I would rather spend it on another cruise
and I like myself the way I am...the bits of gray are coming in...and I am not coloring them...so Mother Nature is fine with me.

Yes, thank you for sharing! I e-mailed you back and said that I love that pink and black top and your formals were just fabulous!

Looks like you had a great time!

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??

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.

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.

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.

To each her own!

lszu..glad you liked the photos and we did have a FANTASTIC TIME!

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 though...I am 46 and a few of the men (and women)thought I was in my mid 30s ..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 though!
