Oy, can you believe QVC was part of a recent Trump brouhaha? It all had to do with First Lady Melania Trump’s bio on WhiteHouse.gov.
We previously blogged that Mrs. Trump had done a fashion jewelry and watch collection for the home shopping network, but that was a number of years ago.
The initial version of her online bio mentioned her QVC line, according to CNN.com. That raised some eyebrows.
So the bio was later edited “out of an abundance of caution” that the reference to Melania’s QVC wares could be interpreted as an endorsement, a Trump mouthpiece told CNN.
The bio had said that “in April 2010, Melania Trump launched her own jewelry collection, ‘Melania Timepieces & Jewelry’ on QVC.”
QVC doesn’t sell items from the collection any more.
