Ex-QVC and HSN Host Judy Crowell Has Her Primetime Premiere On ShopNBC

November 25, 2009

We caught part of Judy Crowell’s second show on ShopNBC Tuesday, at 9 p.m., and she still has it.

Former QVC and HSN host Crowell was well paired with ShopNBC host Melissa Miner, who said that she learned how to be a host by watching Crowell.

“You get around, don’t you?” said caller Carol, referring to Crowell’s stints at all three home shopping networks.

Crowell joked back that Army brats like her “can’t sit still.”

Caller Shirley said of Crowell, “She was my favorite on the other channels…I just can’t tell you how happy I am.”

Shirley even picked up several of Crowell’s new handbags (See Q&A with Crowell).

Crowell looked a little blonder than we remember her. She did a nice job, not too hyper or hard-selling like some other home shopping hosts we know.

Crowell, who is married to ShopNBC “Gem Insider” Paul Deasy, reiterated what she told us in a recent interview: That her accessories collection, which includes faux leather handbags, is meant to add zip to your wardrobe inexpensively.

“You don’t have to break the bank to do it,” said Crowell, who was wearing a sleeveless black sheath dress.

Her purses have a signature leopard print lining, and Crowell claimed that her purses look and feel like distressed leather.

Crowell’s unusual item was a pair of designer-look reading glasses, for those of us who need them.

Crowell’s first show on ShopNBC was at 2 a.m. Tuesday.
