QVC Diva Lisa Robertson, Kelly Ripa Team On Cancer PSAs

How’s this for hype, part of a press release issued by QVC Wednesday:

WEST CHESTER, Pa. (June 26, 2013) – Talk about a show stopper! Two of the hottest hosts in live television – Kelly Ripa and Lisa Robertson – appear in both print and television public service announcements promoting “QVC Presents Super Saturday LIVE” on QVC Saturday, July 27 at 2 PM (ET), with net proceeds benefiting Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF).

We don’t know if we’d call them TV’s hottest hosts but Ripa, co-star of “LIVE with Kelly and Michael,” will once again serve as host for the fund’s “celebrity garage sale” in the Hamptons. Robertson will tag along to take viewers inside the event during the “QVC Presents Super Saturday LIVE” broadcast.

QVC began broadcasting from the Saturday sale in 2006, offering its viewers fashion, beauty, jewelry, accessories and home items for half the manufacturer’s suggested retail price, with net proceeds benefiting OCRF.

“It has been a pleasure to host this exciting show since the beginning and watch it rapidly grow into one of our highest viewed programming events,” Robertson said in a canned quote. “For me, personally, it has been amazing to be a part of such an important cause. If even one woman benefits from our broadcast then I feel that we have made an impact in helping to build awareness for this difficult- to-diagnose disease.”

Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecologic cancers in the United States and is the fifth leading cause of cancer death among American women.

QVC’s PSA campaign was designed to bring more awareness of this often “masked” disease.

“QVC continues to be one of our greatest supporters and we are so thankful to Kelly and Lisa for continuing the fight this year to help bring attention to the importance of research for Ovarian Cancer,” said Audra Moran, the CEO of OCRF. “We look forward to QVC’s involvement again this year and, of course, the amazing awareness that their broadcast brings to the event.”

    Two of the most beautiful women on the planet from head to toe teaming up for a cause & QVC benefit is great. Lisa R. & Kelly knock me out completely, no exaggeration & both of’em make a cool duo.

  2. Mammaberti Says:

    Kelly was better in her soap days …..have never watched her since. Poor Lisa she is so “overdone” that it is difficult to watch her. Women need to realize more often than not less is better!

    if lisa piles on any more makeup her head may fall off

  4. bodi Says:

    One by one corporate sponsors are doing the right thing, I suppose QVC is just waiting until the economics work right by selling off their inventory before ditching her, now that’s “doing the right thing”

    You can ice skate on her forehead

    Thanks you — I have Judith Ripka on the brain!

    Poor Lisa talked for two hrs, all tight in a strapless dress, too much makeup and a fussy hairdo. She’s so sweet and pretty but ages herself. The sale was two hours of beauty products so the visual was boring. Who wants to look at bottles of creams and cosmetics.

      whats up with lisas hairline? anyway, qvc needs to adjust their lighting. it makes her makeup look horrendous. she had the same look when she was playing queen lisa on the shows from Italy. lisa is a pretty girl but i cant figure out if she is conceited or terribly insecure. what will she do when she reaches the big 5 0 ?

    I don’t create many remarks, however I read through
    some responses on QVC Diva Lisa Robertson, Kelly Ripa Team On Cancer PSAs | Homeshoppingista’s Blog By
    Linda Moss. I do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not
    to mind. Is it simply me or do a few of the comments look like they are left by brain dead individuals?😛 And, if you are posting on other sites,
    I’d like to follow you. Would you list of the complete urls of all your social networking pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin

    it seems odd to me that a guy would follow a shopping blog. this is a format for us girls who love to gossip and dish about frivilous things. that doesnt make us brain dead . so derrick, go shit in your hat and pull it down over your ears
