We don’t know why a British tabloid, the Daily Mail, is so obsessed with ex-QVC host Lisa Robertson’s love life. But it is, and apparently so are a lot of other folks.
The London rag’s story on Robertson and her younger 38-year-old boyfriend, her tattooed personal trainer, spread like wildfire among QVC customers.
There’s been speculation about Robertson’s romantic life, sexual orientation and her pursuit by a horde of nut job stalkers for years.
Once she left QVC last December, Robertson started posting photos of her on vacation canoodling with her new beau, Eric McGee. The posts were a shock because Robertson had kept her personal life close to the vest.
According to the Daily Mail, McGee is divorced with two kids, and he and Robertson have met each other’s families. He even appeared on the home shopping network several times with her.
The Daily Mail dug up some dirt on McGee’s past financial woes.
His new life of luxury travel is a far cry from just four years ago when he and his wife Amy filed for bankruptcy with debts of almost $200,000.
In court documents seen by Daily Mail Online, Eric claimed he had personal assets worth just $11,000 and owed $189,243.
He said he had just $36.67 in two bank accounts, owned clothes worth $200 and household furniture valued at $1000.
His biggest asset was a 2007 Dodge Charger with 77,500 miles on the clock he valued at $9,475.
There have been plenty of snarky comments about Robertson’s new beau, that he’s too young; below her station, etc.
Here’s what we think: She and he look happy and very much in love in their photos.
No. 2 — This is not England with its royalty or India with its castes. We are all equals here. McGee has a job, seems to be treating Robertson well, and is hot as far as we are concerned. He’s not “beneath” anyone.
Good for both of them!
