Fashion Designer, QVC Host Debate If Moon Is Planet Or Star [Video]

If you watch QVC, you know fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi is on the cable network shopping channel all the time.

Recently, he and his co-host, Jane Treacy, were talking about a women's shirt, and she said the green pattern reminded her of what the Earth looks like from the moon.

Free Beer & Hot Wings: Comet Is Making Some Pretty Creepy Noises [Video]

Science is just mind-blowing sometimes.
