:-# :-# Is there any time in the near future when Todd English can present his products WITHOUT Joy Mangano. I turn the volumn down when anyone else speaks other than Todd. Of all the people on HSN she has her hooks into, Todd is the only one she has to be on the show with. She has her time with her products, couldn't she just butt out of Todd's shows????](*,) ](*,)
Ya know I just thought of something. Instead of looking "through the smoke" at Todd Maybe Joy would be kind enough to put her "Table" that she sells to work. She should move it to the side, pull out a chair for her self and her tribe and let that gorgeous hunk of a man sell his Pots and Pans without interruption. At the end of the presentation "when the smoke clears" she could be at her Table with a fork, knife and spoon ready to dig into one of Todds creations, quietly reminding him how good his foods tastes. "Just a thought" It will never happen. hahahaha=d>
You know, I could not care less about the guy or what he's selling. How many pots and pans can one person have anyway? I have my great-great-grandmother's cast iron skillet and all those grandmas pretty much cooked everything for their entire family in that one item. Not that I don't have more.... but anyway.... I just had the misfortune to turn on HSN in the middle of the night (coughing non-stop w/ FLU all night) and not only is Joy there, but Shannon too. It's really kind of entertaining. There he is, Joy on his right and Shannon on his left and they both sound like cackling hens and um... gals??? he is COOKING. With a HOT stove. As in: GET YOUR HANDS, ARMS and FACES out of there unless you want a vacation in the burn unit. He looks like he is ready to dump whatever he's got right on their heads. He might be contemplating the risk/benefit ratio of dumping it on his own head just to get the heck out of Dallas. Those two are real space invaders.](*,)
He must have the patience of Job. My brother was a chef for over 20 years in one of the top 5 fine restaurants here. He cooks with me during the holidays and stuff, and if I get in his way, watch out. Chefs don't really like extra hands poking, prodding and completely invading their space. One chef on TV just added something to a pan to glaze and the flames are 2 feet tall. Have they ever heard all the cliches about too many cooks, etc...?
Plus... I love "Family Guy" but Joy's voice sounds just like the whiny, nasal Rhode Island voice of Lois the wife. That's not a compliment (and no offense to folks in The Ocean State - GO PAW SOX!). Joy should consider taking some diction lessons. Or, as was suggested, just stay home and count her money. :-"
