HSN Host Diana Perkovic The Latest To Exit The Network

Another one of my favorite home shopping hosts is leaving the airwaves: HSN veteran Diana Perkovic.

We missed the news, but one of our astute readers tipped us off. It was apparently yesterday that it was disclosed on-air that Perkovic was leaving, and several other HSN hosts bid her farewell.

“Bill Green gave her a farewell today and they showed some old videos of her,” our poster said. “She said she would miss HSN.”

And this was posted on her Facebook page: “An important message for Diana’s HSN fans out there: All good things must come to an end, and we’re all afraid that was exactly what happened yesterday. Diana has left HSN after over 13 years with the company. We thank Diana for a great 13 years on the air at HSN and wish her the very best of luck in the forseeable future.”

Oddly enough, that message wasn’t posted by Perkovic but rather by a dude named Justin Floyd.

And this character kept re-posting that message when Perkovic’s fans expressed dismay that she was exiting.

Her bio is still on HSN.com.

“Diana, originally from Toronto, Canada, debuted on HSN in 1999,” it says. “She’s a big reader, particularly politics, business, and biographies. Diana enjoys home improvements, from tiling floors to reupholstering furniture.”

We found Perkovic to be knowledgeable and enjoyed her beauty and fashion presentations.

Good luck wherever you land, girlfriend.

      Missing , her she was great , lovely , reminded me of J -Lo & Celine Dion.I know her and hubby recently split , she talked about that and getting a date or finding a guy , hpoing that didn’t cause her departing from HSN. To bad she will be missed and
      wondering what happened to Michelle Serrano , New host came in late nights w/Leslieann and right around the same time as Angie and Carrie???

  2. StefF Says:

    anyone who leaves home shopping networks has my utmost respect; there has to be a shelf-life of faked enthusiasm, phoniness, stupidity; she didnt ever strike me as being a stupid one. good for her; hope she goes on to bigger and better things!

    she seemed to me as being uncompromising when it came to slinging the b.s.

  3. Ricar277 Says:

    She was the lisa robertson of hsn. Def one of my favs and will miss her.

  4. Roz Says:

    Hope she goes to a larger channel. She’s great fun!!

    That Justin dude sound like a stalker or at the very least a tard.

    • Lauryn Says:

      A complete tard! He kept repeating over and over “Diana said goodbye to HSN as much as they said goodbye to her”. What the heck does that even mean?! He posted that he didn’t know what her next step would be, so he clearly is not representing her and needn’t be commenting on posts for HER, not him! What an idiot. I will miss Diana. She didn’t oversell like some of the other hosts do.She was one of my faves…I haven’t cared for any of the newbies HSN has hired over the last 2 years, so hopefully they won’t lose anyone else.

      • Christina Bristol Says:

        Especially the Newest one just 2 weeks ago , from California , is it Lisa? Or Kate IDK…What happened to Michelle Sarrano she lasted a few months? She came around the time as Leslie-ann Angie & Carrie ?

    • I hate offensive language Says:

      What does “tard” mean? If it means “retard” then you really should consider removing it from your vocabulary…..it’s no different from using the “N” word or “C” word…thank you!

  6. Luke Says:

    I am hopping she ends up on QVC. But she’s posting a picture of NYC so I guess that’s where she will be.

  7. Trina Dade Says:

    I have always thought that Diana Perkovic was very professional and knowledgeable, until the last time she was on with Antthony, the clothing designer. He would try to talk about his creations and she would pointedly interrupt him, and you could tell there was a lot of tension. I had never seen such a display of an obvious wrestling match for power. And what for? It was very strange to watch. Antthony seemed genuinely confused by her constant attempt to do the opposite of whatever he suggested. He finally even said that he needed a new host! There definitely had to be some behind the scenes happenings that brought this tug of war to air time. And now, Diana is gone? Wish I knew “the rest of the story”.

    • Abigail Says:

      I also saw that surrel show of her ‘I’m somebody and you are just here’ with that vendor, she was really thinking that she owned HSN and wasn’t doing what the rest of them are, peddlers of goods, will not miss her or her arraognce at all, and, while they are cleaning house, I have about 5 more ‘hosts’ they could get rid of.

    • Christina Bristol Says:

      Since her and her husband split she was acting different, Flirtatious, talking about getting dates or hooking a man with money and talking about going out clubbing on-Air , maybe she had started drinking her sorrows away and was being a little wreckless on the air, IDK , But I liked her for many years , but something was different up to the month of her leaving…Definitely will miss her!

  8. Mark Says:

    I would actually like to see her go to QVC. I think it would be a great fit/addition, and they need to mix it up over there. “Shoe shopping with Diana”… I can see it all now….

    • Christina Bristol Says:

      Sounds good , they need more action in the shoe category! Although most all QVC host are terrific… HSN theres some good oldies and a few new ones I like , But A few definitely over do it , or plain just gotta go…

  9. Deb Says:

    I was a casualty of HSN’s return policy so I don’t watch HSN at all anymore. QVC is Lisa Robertson’s domain, I can’t see Diana there at all. HSN sells cheesy celeb lines but somebody like Diana who is young and energetic worked well on the stage with them. All in all I’ve been much happier with QVC, electronics, apparel, and they have “real” designers, Dennis Basso, Judith Ripka, Robert Lee Morris, Isaac Mizrahi, etc.

    • AprilD Says:

      Real designers like the Kardashians, Joan Rivers, Jennifer Hudson, Lisa Rinna, Elizabeth Hasselbeck, etc. They are all the same. I bet none of the “real” designers that either network has looks at what they are selling on the channels until hours before airtime. I rather buy clothing and accessories now from Nordstrom et al when the items are on sale. Better quality and free shipping.

    • Christina Bristol Says:

      Your Absolutely right, much better Quality also and nobody can move in on Lisa’s territory, the host she has there and models respect and work so well together! I can’t see Dianna moving in on their home…I like her and wish her well , They need better host over @ ShopHQ !!!

  10. BLKHILLSGUY Says:

    Lol….real designers like Star Jones at QVC…..LMAO…. it’s pathetic. Joan isn’t a designer either…..she has a team and all she does is get on television and act as a mouthpiece. She’s a comedian. And how could she dress bad…..she wears the same outfits over and over. She’s a comedian who thinks she knows fashion. Judith Ripka stares at herself in the monitor the entire show and Lisa Robertson kisses her butt. I don’t know anybody that takes fashion advice from QVC….they are old and dated. HSN is getting the younger viewers.

  11. AprilD Says:

    Linda Dano Home Collection. They’re kidding, right?

  12. DLM Says:

    I have quit watching QVC for quite a while now. Their clothing styles are geared for retired women most of the time. Susan Graver needs to go, she has worn out her welcome, and Denim and Company is really outdated, as well as Clark Shoes they are so old looking. HSN has much more up to date styles and better values especially on electronics, QVC’s shipping charges are much higher as well.

    • Christina Bristol Says:

      And they’re flex are rarely available , I do like the Host on QVC and some of the real designers and make-up artist , love Lisa Robertson , Gabriella, Amy & Cortney , also theyre models have much more personality, but I still am hooked on HSN also I like alot of the host that have been theyre for over the last 9 years I’ve been watching , there are definitely some that need to go…Love Amy Morrison, Lynne , Connie Craig Carroll, Shavone,Adam, Helen & Robin , Kathy Wolfe’s good to, wondering what happened to Rachel Hubbler?

  13. Jueseppi B. Says:

    Diana Perkovic AND Sean Diddy were classy talented show host. Being a male, I tuned in just to see the personalities of these 2 Ladies but now I have no reason to watch HSN, or ShopHQ, or whatever the name is this month.

  14. Jenn Says:

    Diana left over a contract dispute and she wanted more money.
    Also I have to agree the clothes sold on qvc are for old women and sooo tired and boring. We all know the hosts don’t wear that garbage in real life

    • Christina Bristol Says:

      Especially the models , they’re so pretty on QVC and they always have hot shoes on , thats why Lisa came out w/ Gili line she doesn’t want to wear alot of they’re things now she has Gili Clothing , Shoes , Jewelry & Handbags , definitely updated love her style, along w/Amy, Coutney , Albany & Sandra…My host picks!

  15. Christina Bristol Says:

    Really wondering what happened to 1of my favorite HSN host Dianne Perkovitch , 13years of beauty and fashion she was great , I thought she was from Croatia? I know her and her husband recently spli & she was always commenting on finding a new guy or getting dates ! Hoping airing that personal part of her life didn’t take part in her leaving. She reminded me of a cross in looks between J -lo & Celine Dion…Goodluck where ever she is , definitely missing her Personality.

  16. jenny Says:

    Just noticed she was gone! I’m glad,never liked her harsh voice and strange demeanor.she was awkward,I thought and I would change channels even if she was hosting a product I wanted to buy.now they need to get rid of that bridge troll that sells silver jewelry,daddy must be a close buddy of barry diller of this fat,ugly woman would not be on camera.how did she land this gig? Walmart wouldn’t hire this thung to be a door greeter!
