We posted a blog awhile ago when HSN mother of invention Joy Mangano introduced her line of pillows. We got a lot of comments from customers who bought them, and hated them. And a lot of people may be about to be disappointed.
Mangano broke a record on HSN this weekend when she brought back her Comfort and Joy MemoryCloud pillows and sold nearly half a million of them, or over 216,000 sets, the network said Monday.
That performance shattered HSN’s previous record, also set by Mangano, for the most units of a single item sold in a single day on the home shopping network.
Mangano beat her own prior record of 174,000 units sold in one day of her Forever Fragrant Odor Eliminating, which she set in 2010.
“All I can say is WOW!” Mangano said in a canned statement. “This was a hallmark day in my career and I am blessed to be able to share my products through the power of HSN. I pride myself on offering products designed to make people’s lives a little easier. Days like these make me so thankful for the incredible loyalty my fans have shown me over the years.”
The “Summer Comfort Home” event was part of HSN’s month-long 37th birthday celebration, which also featured collections rom two Bravo “Housewives”: NeNe Leakes of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and Melissa Gorga of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”
At the gym, when we’re on the elliptical machine, we often watch Bravo at night. Just last week we were watching “Housewives of New Jersey” and saw Gorga wearing a striking gold collar-type necklace.
Well, it is from her HSN jewelry line, the “Grecian Goddess” collar, for $30, item number 354-423.
We were unimpressed with NeNe’s cold-shoulder top.
