  • the worse ...I'd rather turn the show off than to watch her

    -0- rating very patronizing and obnoxious......not professional acts like she is scared/and unsure of what's going on.....put her behind the scenes not in front of the camera...there are too many other people out there that would fit the ob...she is definitely not the opinion..john gidding deserves a better host to compliment his episodes and compliment his abiility....she does not compliment the show at all....other hosts help the staff and she doesn't seem to do that either. I will say that I will not watch design to sell when she is on...and I like John Gidding and what he I guess I will have to watch him on "curb appeal"moreless
