First Diamond Dean Michael O’Connor, Now Makeup Queen Leslie Blodgett Gone From QVC?

Thanks to posters on our blog and on the QVC.com boards for giving us the 411 on what is happening with QVC diamond maven Michael O’Connor, who has exited the home shopping network. And they dug up news about doe-eyed Bare Minerals/Bare Escentuals founder Leslie Blodgett.

“Unfortunately, there would have been a contractual conflict with other projects that I’m working on for future and therefore I had no choice,” O’Connor said.

O’Connor, a celeb stylist, also posted a video on Facebook with a clip for an outfit called Engagement 101 TV. It is launching next year — and O’Connor has a show on it.

QVC’s Affinity Diamond line will go on without him.

And a sharp-eyed poster on the QVC forums said that Blodgett will no longer be hosting the Bare Escentuals mineral makeup shows on the home shopping network.

“Leslie said it on her FB page,” the QVC poster said. “She took a sabbatical, and she’ll be back with BE, but her QVC days are over.”

We went on Blodgett’s Facebook page and couldn’t find this announcement, but apparently she’s been MIA from QVC so it sounds real.

UPDATE:

A smart friend found Blodgett’s post.
