Mary Beth Roe Returns To QVC After Harrowing Crash

QVC host Mary Beth Roe, a fan favorite at the home shopping network, is back in the house. She returns today, Wednesday.

The sweet-natured blonde was off the air for about three months while she recuperated from a car accident. We just assumed she had suffered a few broken bones, or injuries along those lines, when we heard of her mishap.

But Roe described her accident, her injuries and her recovery in detail in a blog on It turns out that she didn’t have any broken bones, miraculously, but she struck her head several times when a drunken driver slammed into her car. It ended up being a four-car accident, and Roe feared her face would be so damaged that she would never be able to go on the air again.

She suffered a concussion, and that is nothing to sniff at. For several years we wrote a blog on concussions for an ex-boyfriend, who is now a TBI lawyer. We learned all too well the damage that concussions do to the brain, how former NFL players have developed permanent brain damage — with a number of them committing suicide.

Roe found out about concussions firsthand.

“I’ve learned more about the brain and the body than I ever knew before, and it’s been fascinating,” she wrote.

“I have a whole new appreciation for people with concussions. I now know how it affects your balance, memory, the way your brain processes thoughts, the fatigue it creates, the emotions that a concussion can bring on such as anger or sadness, and the sensitivity to light and sound.”

Roe also posted a photo of the crushed car that hit her vehicle.

She is a devout Christian, and she thanked God for protecting her.

Welcome back, girlfriend!

    Just thought I’d let everyone know that Lisa Robinson was on the local news last week talking about her departure from QVC, and a little of what she’s doing now. She runs a business out of her basement and has 2-3 employees. She looks different. Maybe because she didn’t have all those extensions in her hair and make-up piled on 3 inches thick. And it was nice seeing her actually talk into the camera instead of checking herself out constantly in the monitor. She also talked about how she was weary of working TWENTY (whew!) hour days even though she loved the job. She seems happy and stress free.

    Mary Beth Roe is one of my favorite 3 QVC show hosts–the other two are Jill Bauer & Pat James-Dementrie. (Hope I spelled those correctly).They are so sweet, kind, & just gentle souls!
    I didn’t know about Mary Beth’s accident ’cause I don’t watch like I used to, since you can always use something they are selling!! Lol.
    I’m not on FB , Twitter, etc, so I’m slow to get new news! I’m so thankful, also, to God for her healing & will be praying total recovery!

    I too was in an accident 2 years ago. Semi trruck rear ended me. I bounced back and forth several times. Finally stopped. I had to be cut out of my car. I sort of blacked out and opened my eyes and saw the sky and started singing thank you Lord for every blessing and crying. Although to this day still having effects from the crash. New knee, hip replacement. It’s been a long 2 years. I thank God he was with me in everything.
