We Missed Christie Brinkley’s Debut Show On QVC, But Went To The Video

August 2, 2010

Christie had a lot of sellouts on QVC

We missed Christie Brinkley on QVC!

We got home shortly after 9:30 p.m. Sunday and tuned in to the Q to see the debut of Brinkley’s jewelry collection. But all we saw was the Ross Simon dude and host Antonella Nester. My sister even called to ask me what was going on, adding that my mother was watching Brinkley at that very moment.

We finally figured it out: My mother Ida had recorded the show on her DVR, and she was watching that, not the live QVC feed. Turns out most of Brinkley’s unique jewelry sold out early, and by the time we turned on QVC she was gone.

Anyway, we checked out Brinkley on the video on QVC.com. She’s the same age as us (and has the same birthday as Ida, Feb. 2) and look fantastic. She had a gorgeous turquoise one-shouldered dress on, and her long blonde hair was perfect.

Best of all, Brinkley is not just another celebrity just putting her moniker on a jewelry line.

Brinkley, warm and very sweet, explained that she started out as an art major, and painted and did photography before she got into modeling and became a superstar in that field.

She explained that nature is her inspiration, for items like the crystal quartz drop earrings that we coveted. Those earrings were inspired by the dew drops that Brinkley would see in her organic garden.

“I am so inspired by everything I see in nature,” Brinkley said. “I wanted to create jewelry that reminds you of the beauty of nature.”

QVC was giving the perfect opportunity to combine her love of nature, jewelry and art, she added. “I feel so lucky to do this.”

QVC Host Lisa Robertson Adds To Her Endless List of Purchases From Her Employer

October 31, 2009

We said we were going to keep track of each time QVC host Lisa Robertson says she’s buying an item she’s presenting, so here’s an update. Last week Robertson claimed she was going to buy a pair of hoop earrings from upscale jewelry designer Stephen Dweck’s new QVC line, Dweck Diamonds.

On Friday Robertson was presenting Ross-Simons jewelry. During that shindig, Robertson several times told the company’s CEO and president, Darrell Ross, that she planned to purchase several of his products.

First, she was going nuts over a pair of pearl and gemstone dangle earrings priced at $77.

“Don’t be surprised if I own those earrings by the end of the show,” Robertson told Ross, later adding, “Everytime you’re here, I spend money.”

Then Robertson said that she also planned to add a silver daisy ring to her shopping list (we put it on our list, too, for when we get a job).

As we said, Robertson’s jewelry box and clothes closet must be the size of warehouses, to hold all the QVC merchandise she claims she buys.

The note pad we’re using to list her QVC purchases is right by our TV, and we know it will get longer and longer.
