Sorry, Lisa Robertson’s Dress For QVC’s Red Carpet LA Party Makes Her Look Plump

February 26, 2011

We just got in and tuned in to QVC’s Red Carpet pre-Oscar shindig at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills. We’ve got to hand it to QVC — there is a huge crowd there, and when we came in actress Marlee Matlin was using sign language to say something that we missed.

Now QVC jewelry queen Joan Rivers is talking to host Lisa Robertson, hawking sunglasses.

Lisa Robertson, we wished we liked your red carpet dress

Earlier in the day, on Facebook Robertson said she was heading out to get made up for the party five hours before it started. “It takes a village,” she joked, to get her ready to go on-air. So we were looking forward to see how she looked.

Robertson is a beautiful woman, but she is clad in a long beige gown that is pulling against her stomach area and making her look heavy — which we know she isn’t. This unflattering dress is apparently by QVC designer Isaac Mizrahi. Isaac, Isaac, Isaac.

Robertson’s side ponytail is not such a great look, either. And guess who did the hair? QVC vendor Nick Chavez. Nick, Nick, Nick.

We also got a gander at QVC host Shawn Killinger, who is running around with a microphone interviewing the partygoers. She’s wearing a short black babydoll dress, and her boobs are popping out of the top of it.

Now model Camila Alves, actor Matthew McConaughey’s baby mama, is showing off a pretty fringed bag and a huge bag she did for QVC. She is dressed in a beautful black sequined dress, and looks stunning.

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian are being interviewed on the red carpet, and will soon be pitching their QVC clothing line, K-Dash.

And FYI, vendors and hosts from different home shopping networks do fraternize together. Former QVC host Dave King, who is now at ShopNBC, is also in LA. And on his Facebook page he posted a photo of him, Robertson and Laurie Feltheimer, who does the “Hot in Hollywood” line for HSN, at a restaurant.

Ex-QVC ‘In The Kitchen With Bob’ Bowersox Boards That Plane to Minnesota To Work For ShopNBC

June 17, 2010

Bob is back

Another QVC alum has found his way to ShopNBC.

Former QVC host Bob Bowersox, who used to date ex-QVC host Kathy Levine, will be on ShopNBC Thursday at midnight, 4 a.m., 12 p.m. and 4 p.m, in the “Around the Kitchen” show series.

He will be appearing as a “guest expert,” according to the No. 3 home shopping network. He will offer his cooking and kitchen appliance expertise.

ShopNBC describes Bowersox, who abruptly disappeared from QVC some time ago, as as “actor, voiceover artist, screenwriter, playwright, novelist, poet, singer, songwriter, and national television network personality.”

What ShopNBC fails to mention is that Bowrsix “was a national television network personality” via his tenure at QVC. But ShopNBC does call Bowersox “a home shopping favorite.”

Former QVC host Dave King is also now over at ShopNBC, as a host.

Bowersox will be hawking a Sharper Image Super Wave Oven. “Designed to cook your food up to three times faster than a conventional oven, with up to 80% less energy, customers will learn how this unique product will transform their time in the kitchen,” we’re told.

ShopNBC Covers International CES Show With Online Reports From The Floor In Vegas

In a clever move, ShopNBC is offering some nifty reporting from the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on its Web site, tying in interviews with big manufacturers like Sony and Panasonic to products the home shopping channel is selling.

ShopNBC host Dave King, an alum of QVC, conducts interviews of vendors on the floor of the huge show (we were laid off just after attending last year’s CES show). And he actually does a decent job, talking about the hot news at the CES this year, namely 3D-TV sets.

King does reports on the latest on TV sets, GPS systems, cameras and camcorders, and computer notebooks.

With consumer electronics the big growing catetory on home shopping channels, we think it was a smart move for ShopNBC to be at the CES.
