Carol Brodie gets attacked by caller
I could not believe that a caller on live tv thought it was her right to attack Carol Brodie and tell her she is not a good Jewish girl for wearing a cross. HSN did cut the caller off but not until she had made some terrible accusations. Carol handled it professionally and beautifully. I am a huge fan of her jewely and after today an even bigger fan of her. That caller was ugly and should have kept those feeling to herself, or shared it to Carol in a personal message, not on tv.
That’s not nice. I am glad I missed that show!
OY I mised that show. Well Carol, Joan Boyce, Adrien Arpel, Noa Zuman, and more on HSN are all Jewish. You create jewelry for everyone. This woman who called is an embarrassment. HSN screens you before you talk, so this woman obviously lied to get on the phone with her. She should be ashamed.
It is good to see that blatant rudeness is not considered desirable. Ultimately, people who attempt to embarrass others just end up embarrassing themselves. In any case, the caller must have forgotten that Carol is a business woman.
That caller should be ashamed of herself. Carol handled herself with grace, dignity, composure and class. Some people need to go back to school to learn the basics about respect and etiquette. Obviously the caller has no style or class. Carol you are a first class act!
I think that it was a good thing this was allowed to happen. I am SURE there are many women who would like to wear a cross simply as a fashion statment but are shying away from it on religious grounds. Incidents like that tell them that it’s actually OK to wear a cross.
I heard the call myself and what impressed me the most was after the opinionated caller was cutoff, the cameras stayed on Carol and didn’t go to a break, she fixed her shirt, squarred her shoulders, took a deep breath and again responded that she was a good Jewish girl. Go Carol Go. That was class!:heart:
Kudos to Carol for handling an extremely awkward situation with grace and class. Crosses, hamsas, evil eyes, etc. can all be fashion statements. Thanks for doing them all so well Carol! Gorgeous shows yesterday!!!
The caller must have lied to HSN to be on the air.
All callers are screened before speaking on the air.
When I have been asked about products by HSN, I tell the truth.
The times I have said, I do not like this product because XYZ reason. I never hear from HSN again in regards to that particular product.
The caller needs to move to another planet where more perfect people like her live.
I have several of Carol’s products. I LOVE all of them!
Sorry Carol this happened. You are Beautiful. :heart:
People are so angry these days. Didn’t see it. Glad I didn’t.
Ladies WELL said!!!
You all got class!!
Theres nothing left for me to say! (I wish the caller would see this thread) How Rude!
Being a Jewess myself, I feel especially qualified to respond to this sad state of affairs. Apparently, the Caller either doesn’t know her Torah, or, she has deliberately decided to mock GOD by refusing to abide it… ‘Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall’. PROVERBS
I wear my Star of David… I also wear a Cross sometimes. I have a statue of both Buddha and Quan Yin in my house, along with a plaque of Shiva and a portrait of White Buffalo Calf Woman. To honour GOD is to accept all peoples, all cultures, all beliefs… ALL HIS CHILDREN! It is HIS to judge each and every one of us, not ours.
I saw that live too. The caller asked Carol if she was ashamed of herself and Carol said no, then the caller went on to ask her if she knew what a shonda was (yiddish for shame/fool). The caller also said that wearing a cross was not a "fashion statement". Personally, with a delay (I work in radio/tv) of at least 5 seconds, I was shocked that the caller wasn’t cut off sooner! Carol was so classy and composed and handled it (rude person) perfectly.
SHE HANDLED THAT CALL WITH SUCH CLASS HER THINGS ARE BEAUTIFUL
NOW A DAYS THEY CAN CALL YOU BACK THEY KNOW WHO SHE IS THAT WAS AWFUL I HEARD THAT CALL SOUNDED LIKE A PROTESTER
I did not see it, but I think that was wrong wrong wrong.
Thought there was a 5 second delay on live tv, maybe that doesn’t pertain to shopping channels.
I am Catholic but I respect other religions and their practices, (unless they hurt others and I’m sure everyone knows what I’m talking about).
And I HATE bullying and sounds like this was a prime example of bullying.
