QVC is not the network that we usually associate with space and science. However, this week host Shawn Killinger and fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi turned it into some weird hybrid shopping/science network.
Killinger was presenting a “Cherry Blossom Print Boyfriend Cardigan” design by Mizrahi. She told the designerer that it looked like Earth “when you’re a bazillion miles away from the planet moon.”
“From the planet moon…” repeats Mizrahi.
“Isn’t the moon a star?” she asks, questioning herself.
“No the moon is a planet darling,” he says.
Not willing to give up what she believes is a valid point, Shawn Killinger continues, “The sun is a star. Is the moon really a planet?”
The strange and completely incorrect conversation goes on for a while, until eventually crew members Google the correct information.
Trying to recover from her obvious lack of intellect, Killinger makes a joke about having a “blonde moment.”
