We never thought we’d be writing this, but QVC host and resident glamor puss Lisa Robertson is leaving network!
We are on vacation and were down at the shore, not checking QVC.com or Facebook very often.
We got back late yesterday and it wasn’t until tonight that we sat down at our computer for any amount of time. It was on Facebook that we saw Robertson’s post and blog about leaving the home shopping network, effective in December.
Here is part of Robertson’s blog announcing her departure:
Over my last 20 years at QVC I have had the most amazing opportunities met the most wonderful people and gone to the most beautiful places. I cannot tell you how lucky I feel. But there comes a time when you have done what you can do and it is time to see what else there is. And that is where I am.
After a lot of soul-searching I have decided that I will be leaving QVC. It is time for a new challenge and a new adventure. Although it is a little scary to leave what you have always known, I am very excited about what lays ahead.
We can’t help put wonder whether Joan Rivers’ death played any part in Robertson’s decision.
One of our gracious readers also notified us on Facebook of Robertson’s exit and suggested that the stalking nutjobs that have plagued the gorgeous host may have played a part in her decision to leave. That could be.
So where will she land?
Via her role on QVC, Robertson has appeared on a variety of TV shows, so maybe she will find a job at one of those programs. QVC will survive, as it did the exit of hosts such as Kathy Levine. But Robertson’s departure represents a big loss. She worked on the design of the network’s G.I.L.I. line, and was of course a real fixture on QVC.
