  2. My thoughts ~~ David is a fine example of a SOUTHERN GENTLEMAN!! This GEORGIA PEACH enjoys his demeanor, his wit, his culinary knowledge and fantastic abilities when it comes to selling ANYTHING and the uncanny ability to make a person feel like “” I JUST GOT TO HAVE THAT!” That, my friends is a well- honed talent!! Continued success!!!

    1. If you have a smart phone, you can download the QVC app and watch all the shows on the main QVC channel and the other channels, like QVC2, QVC3, etc. That’s what I did a couple of years ago when I cancelled cable for financial reasons. I knew I’d miss seeing David and my other favorite show hosts, so I’m really glad that it turned out I didn’t have to when I got the app!

  4. David is great on QVC. I do worry about his continuous weight gain. He, along with several of the other hosts, gain weight each year. I known the camera adds 10pounds on you but his health is declining in front of our eyes. 🙁

  5. I love David on QVC. He’s so cute and has a great personality. I would also like to meet him someday. Love the happy dance. He looks like a cuddly bear when he “dances”. Keep him on the show , he’s amazing.

  6. I think being a host is a job and folks need to remember this. It’s not an interview about their personal life including their sexual orientation, weight loss or gain, and their interests. I think if you think about it for a moment you wouldn’t want these same things to be a part of your job.

  7. Been watching David since the beginning and I don’t even cook. He makes me smile and sometimes laugh out loud. His private life should remain private. Who cares?

  10. LOVE LOVE LOVE David!! Who cares about his PERSONAL life! That is PERSONAL and PRIVATE and should remain so. I would say to any of you who are questioning these private matters –IT’S NONE OF YOUR D### BUSINESS!! Now, my husband laughs at me for watching “In the
    Kitchen With David” every Sunday morning. He says, and I quote, “just where art we going to put all this stuff you’re buying?” I tell him not to worry, because I just have to have this item, that item and then some more. I could probably “host” a show right from my home with all the wonderful stuff I have purchased! And, I gotta say, it’s all because of David’s magnificent personality and ability to SELL! Anybody that is that talented is ACES in my book — because my earlier career was in Sales and I know how difficult it can be.

    1. You are so right. I order stuff. Have it sent to the house while I’m outta state. My DIL and grandkids think it’s Christmas and I love the reactions I get. Esp when I ordered that pint ice cream making appliance I don’t even know the name of! Leave his private personal life private and personal.
