Can Alison Keenan not keep quiet for a minute?

I like Alison, but I wish she would calm down. She just never, ever, stops to catch her breath.

I agree. She's pleasant, elegant and professional but she speaks so fast that I can't concentrate on what she's saying now let alone remember what she's said. I think it's a nervous on-screen habit because if she spoke to friends or colleagues as fast, someone would surely pull her up on it. I know I would. Slow down, Alison. You'd do just fine at 45rpm instead of 78.

But generally these days, so many people on the box gabble. And so much of what they're gabbling about is repetitive rubbish.

You never know how people behave behind closed doors. She might be quiet and reflective when she's off air. It's a possibility. Some bright and seemingly lovely people, are monsters when they close their front doors.

A few weeks before Christmas and watching IW, Genevieve was the same - gabbling away at 19 to the dozen and it was becoming unintelligible to hear her. There was a Studio line for emails, so I shot one off telling her to 'calm down and speak slower'. To her credit after the next break, she read out my email ! -- "I have received an email from Linda, telling me to speak slower" she laughed and admitted she was always being told that, and for the rest of the show she did speak more measuredly. A shame QVC don't have that same facility - perhaps its too dangerous 😂 as they'd get too many complaints.

Indeed they are.

I could probably cope with the runaway train speed of her gab but I turn over the moment I see her these days as I have no wish to hear any more 'my family' talk from her.

That handbag guest she was on with last night was a switch off for me.
She was constantly giggling like a silly schoolgirl, she was the same last week when on with Charlie.

What with AK talking at the speed of light, and her giggling along non stop...... 😒

Yes, that's the word for it: desperate. But why? I know that maybe she thinks time is short, but desperation and wild gabbling are to be pitied, they won't get me shopping!

Not content with the wedding, the granddaughter she has now started on a baby born to a niece in New Zealand! Could even be on husbands side of the family so not even her own.
Come on LATI, you weren't paying full attention, she is her niece's baby & she was born in Australia!
 
I think everyone is full of themselves, I know I am. However, most of us don't include it as an integral part of our job.
Well, I have to say if I was full of myself, I wouldn't struggle with weight issues. Women who are full of themselves would never allow themselves to gain a half pound let alone a stone.
