QVC Morning Host Pat James-DeMentri’s Bad Boy Ex-Husband (We Think) Is Fired From New York City TV Station

May 22, 2010

We don’t know if Pat James-DeMentri is still married to him or divorced from him, but the QVC’s host’s one-time better half got himself in trouble again. In fact, newscaster Vince DeMentri has been fired from WPIX-TV in New York City, according to the New York Daily News Saturday.

The tabloid’s story, headlined “DeMentri Gets Canned From Channel 11 News,” says he was let go just days after allegedly slapping a chauffeur during a fight over a parking space.

Read the story for all the juicy details.

DeMentri joined WPIX in March after getting in trouble, and scandals, at a station in Philadelphia “after bedding a co-anchor and engaging in an overly public beef with the station’s weatherman,” according to the News.

While working for WCBS in New York City in 2001, DeMentri was arrested for posing as a federal agent to get access to Ground Zero just two days after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Those charges were dropped.

‘Extra’ Host Mario Lopez Tells Us QVC Has The Hook-Up For Black Friday

November 26, 2009

Wow, QVC’s PR team must be working overtime. They got a plug Wednesday night for the network’s 28-hour Black Friday event on “Extra,” with the segment delivered by host/hot actor Mario Lopez.

“QVC’s got the hook-up,” Lopez told viewers. Really?

And then we got to see yet another pitch for the Clarisonic facial cleansing system, which has been on QVC about a zillion times, along with Nintendo’s Wii. The Clarisonic is $195 on QVC, versus $288 in retail, according to Lopez.
