On QVC why does the Models Prefer lady always have her hair in curlers?? I don't get it....
It's because when she comes out, if you notice, she doesn't have a stitch of makeup on. I believe she's supposed to represent what a woman would look like when she's getting ready for work or to go out, etc. Some women put their hair up in curlers to let it "set" while they apply their makeup. At the end, she takes the curlers out and finishes up. She looks wonderful!
I remember Kathy Levine was cleaning out her basement once and was talking about all the stuff she had acquired. I got the impression it was all the free things that she had to test before actually pushing it. I guess they get lots of freebees to try and keep. So when a host says he/she has a certain item, we are supposed to believe they purchased it, but in reality they got it free.
Yes, I remember reading Kathy's book back in the '90s and her saying that they'd get freebies. The thing I remember about the jewelry, however, was that the hosts would generally get "costume" (read: fake) stuff. I remember she said that Joan Rivers may sell something really bang-zoomer from her line and TPTB would have it made over for Joan in real gem stones whereas she, Kathy, would get the less expensive do-up.
