Sorry, but I just have to vent. I can not stand watching Joy Mangano any longer on HSN!!! She is sooo irritating, and she sells junk! I immediately change the channel when I see her. I got so sick of hearing her call people "dear" and "honey" and "sweetie" all the time. The only thing she's had that I even remotely liked were her hangars. And instead of buying them on HSN I ran out to our Target store and purchased them for a lot less money. She's irritating and so fakey. Maybe you have to be to sell low quality items. I heard she purchased part of HSN and is now part owner of it. If that's the case, I will greatly reduce my shopping there. Just had to vent!:-({|=

I have a deep respect for Joy Mangano.  I enjoyed the movie, "Joy."  I know that Hollywood embellishes as someone pointed out, but Joy was a consultant on the show.  I'm sure she had a lot of input.

I personally like Joy Mangano and admire her for breaking ground into the business world when it was typically impossible for a woman to be taken seriously. Many people misjudge her larger than life personality as being, "to fakey or over the top", but that's just her personality. Very much like Joan Rivers who was a sweetheart, but people either loved her or hated her due to her bravado and non-apologetic demeanor. 

 

It takes a strong Woman to endure and believe in herself and Joy certainly does! Sure not everyone will like her or her products, but why do people find it necessary to belittle and criticize her! I have seen threads before, where people go out of their way too smear her products and even get others " riled" up for the sake of damaging her reputation. We won't always like people, but certainly doesn't make it right to just bad mouth someone. 

 

Joy and her products have been around for a long time and will continue to be! Her investing or buying into HSN is a great accomplishment, not sure why that would bother anyone...Woman WinkWoman Tongue

One more point about Joy. It's tough getting through all the struggles in any business. You gotta work your fanny off to make the sale so give her a break.

I'm sorry but after watching the movie Joy I fell in love with Joy Mango. She reminded me so much of my lovely wife who passed away 3 1/2 years ago. Watching the movie brought tears to my eyes watching the strugles, ups and downs and her strong family values. We both had a major deal with HSN in 1994 but Barry Dillar was just begining to take over HSN and that cancelled our deal. It's OK because we had other successes later on But watching the story hit home so much I couldn't help but fall in love with her.. Hope the very very best for Joy and all her family

I'm sorry you lost your sweet wife Steve. God bless you and your family.

Joy Mangano is an IMMEDIATE click to another channel for me.

 

I refuse to watch her antics, listen to her spiel, or buy her products; and wouldn't watch the movie about her no matter how many big names were associated with it.  Annoying and overbearing doesn't even come close to describing her, but those are the gentlest terms I can muster.

 

She elicits a NEGATIVE response in me.  :-)

mooncat3 | Maven 2 | 10.29.2016 3:13 PM

I turn the channel when she and her daughter are on, but the movie was great!

 

It is NOT a documentary- just loosely based on Joy's story. 

VONNIE676 | Inspirer 1 | 12.06.2015 10:45 AM 7 People have Smiled

Joy does not need anyone to blow her trumpet. She does it all by herself.I stopped liking her and her products after I purchased her *little steamer* that expands and renders it impossible to unscrew. I had to bang it on the edge of my kitchen countertop to pry it apart. Needless to say, it eventually cracked and had to be discarded. The cord snapped back and hit me on my face which remained black and blue for close to a week.

 

As for disliking her -- it goes back to her vacation to St. Barts. It was all she bragged about upon her return during her show. She was selling a copy of a prestige brand of luggage she saw people using. Several times during the show she urged everyone to vacation at St. Barts, as if some of us can afford going there. She also mentioned that she could purchase several sets of her luggage which does not come close to the price of the shoes she was wearing. I've also heard her state the same about the cost of her dresses in comparison to whatever item she was selling at the time. Joy's', braggadocio personified.

I don't dislike Ms. Mangano,but I would never  buy her products. She acts as she is doing you  a favor for selling cheaper and badly made products.Ms. Mangano is a great sales person,look at her millions.But I am not impress by her millions or her products.

her umbrella doesn't work, as the fragrance sticks also don't work. The hangers I do love. That's it.

Deano123 | New Friend | 04.12.2014 5:13 PM 5 People have Smiled
OMG!! I've been been saying that for years! She is totally annoying! She won't shut up. She out talks the host 9 to 1. I wish she'd take a break breaking let her products be on without her.

What is so irritating about joy is that she never shuts her mouth. She over talks the host with stupid comments like "oh my gosh" and "exactly".
oldpixie | Pro 3 | 04.12.2014 9:11 AM 3 People have Smiled

 I myself have not tried her sticks,  but I know a few peeps who did and unless you stick it up your nose there is no smell.   I guess if you like the container / vase  then order them.       I dont care for how much  Joy blathers & babbles on  either.      

REIKIBABE | Admirer 1 | 12.28.2011 1:13 PM 1 Person Smiled
LOL - I have her hangers and they are actually holding up. But oh my gosh - how many times do we hear her say that? Drives me nuts. And I have to wonder about her accent these days - is it real or her schtick? Although I think all of her is schtick. Wonder what kind of tanning stuff she uses? Last time I saw her she glowed a very unnatural orange.

Most of the hangers that I bought of Joy's have broken. They are very poor quality. I now buy them at Walmart and they are so much sturdier.
frenchy371 | New Friend | 12.03.2015 1:30 PM 3 People have Smiled

Yes the hangers have broke and the umbrella doesn't work, the fragrance sticks do not smell at all just junk!!!! So dissapointed. Will NEVER BUY HER STUFF AGAIN. SHE ALSO TALKS TOO MUCH CALLING EVERYONE DARLING!!! Ugh!!!!!!

kimd24 | Inspirer 2 | 12.21.2011 7:24 PM 2 People have Smiled
I agree she is very annoying and how in the heck can they spend a whole hour talking about those hangers, maybe 20 mins but they will talk forever can't stand it. Ohhhh and those darn "Green Pans" that I have spent a fortune on, well they suck big time! I have had to send some back three times, and I get the new ones and now it's time to send them back because they are sticking again, what a pain!

What are those fragrance sticks that have no smell. I thought well she says they absorb the odors so maybe they are not suppose to be fragrant.........NOT! I put them in my son's room which is like a smelly locker room does not work. Now I am stuck with decorative sticks!](*,)

Joy is a multi millionairess who could care less about the people who put her there, the customers. Most people with her net worth are arrogant and have to be. They have hundreds of employees under them.

I TOTALLY agree! She is so fake, it's pathetic!!!!! NEVER watch her, only for a few minutes a couple of times. That was ENOUGH for me, ugh!!!!!:-&

I think JOY should create something apropos for this Joyous season and forget about glamorous accessories like
Wigs and Parisian Luggage. For ex., why not lead the hosts in a Joyful-$ing-A-Long and name the CD, what else -
Joy To The World. And pray she doesn’t forget about our darling children...soon there might be Huggable Joys,
ingenious, petite dolls with a striking resemblance to our own JM and designed in her inimitable style....just squeeze ‘em
and they squeak - OH MY GOSH!
