Ex-QVC Host Kathy Levine Resurfaces to Rep Nutrisytem on HSN

January 28, 2020

We saw that former QVC queen bee host Kathy Levine just turned up on HSN as a rep for Nutrisystem.

Since her exit from QVC many years ago, and her marriage to a wealthy older man, Levine has made appearances on a number of other home shopping channels, including ShopHQ.

She also just appeared in a video session on Facebook with husband-and-wife home shopping team Judy Crowell and Paul Deasy.

As with many home shopping personalities, Levine’s face looked tucked and taunt. Maybe she was just really rested, but we think she succumbed to the TV medium’s pressure to look young with the help of a surgeon. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. We understand the pressure.

We hadn’t seen QVC host Jane Treacy in awhile, and she looked like she has had some work done on her eyes.

Big Whoop: QVC Is Now All Easy Pays, All The Time

January 2, 2020

QVC had hyped a big announcement it said it had planned for New Year’s Eve.

We didn’t see the announcement, but apparently the big scoop was that the No. 1 home shopping network from now on is offering easy pays on all its merchandise all the time.

We use Easy Pay all the time, but it is a bit of a trap. You forget all those Easy-Pay items you ordered, and sometimes wind up getting a very rude awakening when your credit card bills come in.

Anyway, it reeks a bit of desperation on QVC’s part.

QVC Vendor Lisa Rinna Goes Nude For the Holidays

January 2, 2020

QVC vendor and reality TV star Lisa Rinna posted a nude photo of herself about a week before Christmas on social media. We think it was on Instagram.

All we can ask is why? Is she this desperate for publicity?

We saw part of the photo, which apparently dates back a number of years ago. The version we saw had the nipples hidden by two black strips that said “Hollywood gossip.”

Not cool. We don’t want to sound like prudes, but guess we are.
