Once again, one of our Facebook friends tipped us off to home shopping news: Shawn Diddy has exited ShopNBC, which seems to be the revolving door of show hosts.
ShopNBC put it out on Facebook Thursday that Diddy was gone. It was short and sweet.
“Shawn Diddy is no longer with ShopNBC,” the No. 3 home shopping network posted. “We wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.”
In fact, back on Nov. 28 Diddy said she was going.
“Yes- it’s official,” she posted on Facebook. “I’m leaving ShopNBC as a host on December 24, 2012 to follow my actor/entertainer heart. Please watch Facebook and http://www.shawndiddy.com for updates. In the meantime, I’ll see you on ShopNBC :-).”
But in light of ShopNBC’s history of parting ways with popular hosts, the reaction to Diddy’s departure wasn’t good. Here are some of the posts on the network’s Facebook page:
“Don’t you think that it kind of a stinkin way to announce???”
“This channel only wants vacuous Stepford wife types. I stopped watching. I can’t stand any of the hosts remaining.”
“Is she related to PDiddy?”
“You guys fire someone every other week”
“Maybe she quit.”
“Her pic is even gone from the website too!!!!
“He’s Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs, AKA Puff Daddy. Probably not related”
“I’ve known it since she announced it here on Facebook she’s going to do much better things very soon!”
“Doesn’t sound amicable, that’s for sure.”
“She left on her own terms folks!”
“She may have left on her own terms but it appears NBC has an axe to grind just by the way they are presenting this. No class at all.”
“What a scumbag was of saying that… billion dollar company they need to hire a better public relation’s person. best of luck Shawn…”
“The Shop is cold blooded like Gangsters….”
