Ex-ShopNBC Host Charla Rhines Is Back, And EmVee TV Has Her

August 10, 2010

Charla Rhines

SHIP BOTTOM, N.J.–Why does so much news break while we’re trying to take a few days off down the shore?

We just got back from a nice dinner at PF Chang’s in Atlantic City, checked our e-mail and Facebook, and saw that former ShopNBC host Charla Rhines Monday confirmed that she’s landed at EmVee TV.

We’d previously reported that she was likely to land there, but Rhines offered this dish Monday.

“Hi ladies and gents! Ya, i’m going back to work this weekend at emvee tv. soooo looking forward to it. they stream live now every sat. and sun. so go to emvee tv.com, or if you have a dish they are on channel 225 direct tv, or channel 224 on dish network. see you all soon! thank you for the kind words”

ShopNBC let tart, mouthy, funny, frank Rhines go earlier this year, releasing an angry torrent of venom from her fans against the No. 3 home shopping channel.

Our blogs on her have gotten more than 100 angry posts from her fans.

Here’s wishing you luck, Charla.

Singer Jewel To Peform Live On HSN At Crack Of Dawn Monday

November 29, 2009

If you’re a fan of the singer Jewel, set your alarm for 6:30 a.m. Monday. That’s when she will be performing live, acoustic guitar, on HSN.

Why HSN has scheduled Jewel’s first performance at dawn, we have no idea. But the singer will also be on at a more reasonable hour, 1 p.m. Monday.

We believe she will be performing songs from her CD “Lullaby,” which HSN is selling for $18.

As part of its effort to draw in non-home shopping viewers, both HSN and QVC have been offering live concert performances of artists such as Natalie Cole and Jose Feliciano.
