Today's Blue Plate Specials ... Eat in the Heat!

QVC is obsessed with all this summer eating business! Maybe David “Yum-Yum Face” Venable and his appetite have taken over the Q. Anyway, today--for your July 4th picnic prep pleasure--the TSV is the Kitchen King Pro 11-piece Food Preparation Station.

This is one of those gadgets that does a little of everything. It looks like it works (really like the suction cup feet!), but I always end up with storage and clean up issues with these things. Regardless, it’s hotter than a goat’s butt in a pepper patch around here so Queen Bea will not be eating outside any time soon!

HSN has the Clean-A-Bout 1600psi Premium Electric Pressure Washer as their TS. I’m sure it’s great, but I just can’t sit through those horrid presentations where the washer is roaring and the host is trying to talk over the sound without sounding too much like they’re screaming. Not enjoyable. However, Laura Hutton will be on today and that is enjoyable. Hope she got some sleep!

ShopNBC has a fabulous 14k 1.26ct. diamond flex ring from Sonia Bitton of the Galerie de Bijoux Collection—I just love saying all that in my horrendous French accent (I sound strikingly like the chef from The Little Mermaid, “Les poissons, les poissons, how I love les poissons!”).

But, as fabulous as it might be, it’s also over $1600. Not really doable. This is why Queen Bea has an undying love for fake diamonds (note recent Tacori ring purchase). I wonder if these flex rings are easier or harder for people to slide over their knuckles.

  1. Flex rings are awesome--they're comfy & if you're a little bloated you can still get them on and off. They're also good if you like to switch the ring from one finger to another (fingers within one size work best).'Course, mine don't have real gemstones.


If your forbidden love is home shopping and you love all the latest dirt, then come on in ... Queen Bea is holding court!
