Actress Kate Walsh, Out Of Scrubs, Tells Us About Her Boyfriend On HSN

November 12, 2010

We caught a bit of actress Kate Walsh’s debut on HSN with her “Boyfriend” perfume Thursday morning, and she seemed pretty at ease hawking her new fragrance for women.

Walsh, a gorgeous redhead, was wearing a red dress. She was a bit of a tease. She told host Diana Perkovic that some of her co-stars on ABC’s “Private Practice” — “You know who they are,” she told HSN shoppers — had sniffed her Boyfriend and loved it.

Walsh’s cast mates on “Private Practice” include hunky Taye Diggs, Tim Daly and Amy Brenneman.

Walsh described her fragrance as a mix of vanilla and musk, and explained how she came up with Boyfriend.

The actress broke up with a boyfriend (small “B”) five years ago, and missed him and his scent.

“You know how your guy smells,” Walsh said, noting that you can smell your man’s aroma and pheromones on his shirt and other clothing. (Funny, the shirt of the guy we’ve been dating is hanging on our doornob, and we can’t smell him on it. And we’ve been sniffing it like a hound looking for a hare all week.)

Anyway, after her break-up Walsh went to a store looking to buy a men’s fragrance to remind her of her guy, and they were all too strong. Hence, she came up with her softer version of man’s fragrance for women.

Twiggy Is Just ‘Brilliant’ On HSN, And We Hope Her Jeans Are, Too

April 3, 2010

Saturday is Twiggy day on HSN.

The 1960s modeling icon — of short hair and painted lower eyelashes — debuted her Twiggy London line at midnight with her Today’s Special, a Union Jack Tote in a variety colors.

“I carry my life in my bag,” she said during her Saturday morning show. Now there’s something we girls can relate to.

Twiggy, now sporting long hair and more girth that during her modeling salad days, is quite charming. We like how she keeps throwing in British slang and word uses like calling items “brilliant” and talking about putting “bits” in her purse.

Twiggy, who expanded her career to include acting (with two Golden Globes and a Tony nomination) and even being a judge on “America’s Next Top Model,” is rocking a long gypsy skirt that we loved. But we were afraid it would be too long for 5-foot-2 shrimps like us.

Instead, we decided to give Twiggy’s jeans a try, in the grey color that we love so much but is so hard to find in retail.

We’re praying that their waistband don’t fall just two inches above our private parts, like 90 percent of the other jeans we’ve been trying on. How can you not feel like your pants are falling off?

Twiggy will be on all Saturday.
