Unscripted babble about an offensively-printed cardigan between two QVC hosts quickly turned into a scientific discussion where hypotheses were made, and judgemental "darlings" were thrown.

Host Jane Treacy noted that the pattern recalls memories of "what the Earth looks like when you're a bazillion miles away from the planet moon." She quickly corrected herself asking, "Isn't the moon a star?" Fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi stepped in, "The moon is a planet honey." Bickering and "I knew it!"s ensued, making this the most interesting QVC bit to ever exist.

Just in case you too are inexplicably unclear about this matter, according to Space dot com, the moon is Earth's only natural satellite, making it neither a planet nor a star.
