December 30, 2010

It looks like QVC host Rick Domeier’s new book, “Can I Get A Do Over?,” is already out and in bookstores.

Earlier this week Domeier posted this message on Facebook.

What a difference a Year can make!! One Year ago: An idea to write and Publish a book that would truly inspire. No manuscript, no Publisher, nothin’… nada. One year later, as of TODAY… on the shelf at B&N, with a Title inspired by my son. Pay it forward and get limited copies on Amazon Now. So… What do YOU want from 2011? Best to the New You in the New Year!

The posting also included a photo of Domeier, incognito in a baseball cap, and his son standing near his new tome in a bookstore, which we assume was Barnes & Noble.

Get Out Your Cruise Wear: ShopNBC’s Suzanne Somers, The Controversial Cancer Book Author, Ready To Set Sail With Her Fans

November 4, 2009

Last chance to book a reservation on the 2009 Suzanne Cruise, which leaves port from Fort Launderdale, Fla., next Tuesday. If you have to ask which Suzanne, then forget about it.

Actress-singer-entrepreneur-author Suzanne Somers, who moved to ShopNBC from HSN this year, will be on board for the trip. It spans Nov. 10 to 15 and will sail to ports such as Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Georgetown, Grand Cayman.

This is Somers’ first cruise since her sold-out 2001 Goddess Cruise.

One would think that this respite would perhaps give Somers a chance to relax after doing high-powered promotion, and taking a lot of heat, for her controversial new book on cancer, “Knockout: Interviews With Doctors Who Are Curing Cancer, And How To Prevent Getting It In The First Place.”

But it looks like she will be very busy working on her very own Love Boat, as hostess.

Suzanne Cruise guests will enjoy stateroom accommodations, meals, entertainment and access to private Suzanne Cruise events, we are told.

Those include: a cruise welcome featuring Somers; fitness classes; presentations by guest speakers; four special workshop presentations by Somers on health, fitness and beauty; multiple networking and Suzanne “fun” events; a “thank you” farewell event with Somers; and the encore event, the Suzanne “Onstage” Musical Performance.

Passengers will also learn about Somer’s “philosophies and strategies on entrepreneurship and how she has built one of the most trusted brands in America….In addition, she will reveal and discuss her personal secrets to attaining optimum health, which has allowed Suzanne to maintain years of peak business performance and success,” according to the press release, on the event.

Somers’ ship is the new MSC Poesia (Italian for “Poetry”), which will make its U.S. debut later this year. Exuding her Italian roots, the Poesia features include the luxurious Aqua Spa, two pools, four Jacuzzis, a state-of-the-art gym, salon, sushi bar, wine tasting bar and Teatro Carlo Felice, a state-of-the-art three-level, Broadway-style theater.

Tickets for the Suzanne Cruise will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis and will only be available at

Interior staterooms are sold out, but you can still book a room for $1,000 to $1,800.

ShopNBC’s Suzanne Somers Blogs About Larry King Interview, Her Controversial New Cancer Book ‘Knockout,’ And Close-Minded American Cancer Society

October 30, 2009

ShopNBC’s Suzanne Somers has blogged about her recent interview on CNN’s “Larry King Live,” and what she believes is the obstinancy and close-mindedness of conventional oncologists.

The blonde actress/entrepreneur faced off on the show with Dr. Otis Brawley, who is with the American Cancer Society. He was dissing her new book, “Knockout: Interviews With Doctors Who Are Curing Cancer, And How To Prevent Getting It In The First Place.”

Somers’ book advocates alternative treatments and diet as ways to cure and prevent cancer, rather than always turning to chemotherapy.

According to the actress, a year ago she was misdiagnosed at one point for full-body cancer, and thought she was going to die until finding out she was really OK. Scary stuff.

ShopNBC’s Suzanne Somers And Her Controversial Cancer Book ‘Knockout’ Lent Some Support By New York Times Series

October 26, 2009

When ShopNBC’s Suzanne Somers appeared on CNN’s “Larry King Live” Friday, she defended her controversial new book on holistic treatments for cancer. The book is called “Knockout: Interviews With Doctors Who Are Curing Cancer, And How To Prevent Getting It In The First Place.”

Somers, under heat from the American Cancer Society, mentioned that even The New York Times had written about how the war against cancer was being lost. She was critical of chemotherapy, saying it does not have a good success rate.

The blonde has a big bone to pick with the medical community. On the King show, Somers said that last November several doctors had misdiagnosed her and said she had full-body cancer. She thought she was going to die. Prior to that, in 2001, Somers had breast cancer, and survived without chemotherapy. She had the lump on her breast removed, did radiation and turned to alternative treatments.

We had missed the Times’ stories Somers referred to, and wondered what she was talking about. But Sunday The Times had a very moving Page One story about a Houston hospital that only handles cancer patients. Patients, and doctors and nurses who themselves have cancer describe how difficult it is to endure treatments, how devastating the disease is and how hopeless they feel.

All the stories on The Times “Fourty Years War” cancer series can be found here.

We’re not advocating that cancer patients forego conventional medicine, and we have not read Somers’ book, but The Times’ stories do seem to lend some credence to her questioning the success rate of traditional treatments like chemotherapy.

In point of fact, we know women whose lives have been saved by chemotherapy, so we certainly are not knocking it.

But Somers is raising some legitimate issues about how difficult the fight against cancer is, as The Times has chronicled. Anyone who has lost a loved one — who was in remission after treatment, only to have their cancer return and kill them — knows how tough some cancers can be to beat.

ShopNBC’s Suzanne Somers Takes On The American Cancer Society On ‘Larry King Live’ Friday: Is Her Book ‘Knockout’ Risky Advice?

October 24, 2009

And so the battle over Suzanne Somers’ new book on alternative treatments for cancer begins.

A tense-looking Somers defended her latest book, “Knockout: Interviews Wih Doctors Who Are Curing Cancer, And How To Prevent Getting It In the First Place,” Friday night on CNN’s “Larry King Live.”

The blonde, who is selling her new book as part of her line on ShopNBC, traded arguments with Dr. Otis Brawley, who is chief medical officer for the American Cancer Society. He maintained that diet and alternative treatments must be used in conjunction with traditional medicine.

He has outlined his views on CNN’s Web site. The commentary is headlined “Somers’ Cancer Advice Is Risky.”

Somers is not a big advocate of chemotherapy, and maintains that traditional treatments for cancer don’t work very well.

The actress/entrepreneur, wearing an off-the-shoulder purple dress, denied that she is against conventional medicine. But she questionned its effectiveness against cancer.

“If chemotherapy is the answer, then why do half a million people die of cancer every year?” she asked. “The New York Times has said the war on cancer is a dismal failure.”

Two doctors that Somers interviewed for her book, Stanislaw Burzynski and Nicholas Gonzalez, also appeared on the King show with the actress.

Here’s a CNN video clip of King’s show.

ShopNBC’s Suzanne Somers Revs Up Promotion Blitz For Controversial Cancer Book ‘Knockout’: ‘Inside Edition,’ ‘Access Hollywood,’ And ‘Rachel Ray’ On The List

October 20, 2009

Suzanne Somers’ appearance on “Larry King Live” may have been postponed until Friday, but she will be busy all this week promoting her new book on cancer.

Somers, who is now selling wares on ShopNBC after moving from HSN, had an appearance Tuesday morning on “The Early Show” on CBS to talk about what could be her next bestseller, “Knockout: Interviews With Doctors Who Are Curing Cancer, And How To Prevent Getting It In The Future.”

The book talks about alternative treatments for cancer, methods that have been attacked by the established medical community.

“They’re fighting it tooth and nail,” Somers said on “The Early Show,” arguing that doctors have too much vested in treatments like chemotherapy.

The actress also described how her own cancer was misdiagnosed, leading her to do research on the topic. Only three types of cancer respond to chemotherapy, according to Somers, and there has only been a 5 percent drop in the cancer death rate in recent years, not a very good success rate, she said

Somers will appear later Tuesday on “The Today Show” and “Dr. Nancy” on MSNBC and “Access Hollywood” tonight.

Wednesday she will appear on “Inside Edition,” “Fox & Friends” and Fox News Channel’s “The Cavuto Report.”

Friday, she’s on “Larry King Live”, and “Fox and Friends Weekend” on Sunday.

The first week of November, Somers will appear on “The Rachel Ray Show.”

Balloon Boy Scuttles Suzanne Somers’ Appearance On ‘Larry King Live,’ Rescheduled For Friday

October 20, 2009

Suzanne Somers was knocked off CNN’s “Larry King Live” Monday night by the Balloon Boy.

Actress Somers, who moved from HSN to ShopNBC this year, was scheduled to appear on “Live” to promote her new book on cancer. “Knockout: Interviews With Doctors Who Are Curing Cancer, And How To Prevent Getting It In The First Place” is being released Tuesday, and Somers is out promoting it.

But Somers’ appearance with King was abruptly cancelled.

Viewers got a surprise when they tuned in to “Live” at 9 p.m. King wasn’t there, and neither was Somers.

It was announced that Monday’s show was “Balloon Boy Parents Under Siege,” about the hoax a Colorado couple perpetrated last week when they claimed their son was in an airborne homemade, flying-saucer-shaped balloon.

Then CNN’s Wolf Blitzer came on the air, saying he was sitting in for King on “Live.” Blitzer said that Somers’ interview with King will air on Friday.

ShopNBC’s Suzanne Somers Kicks Off Cancer Book Launch With ‘Larry King,’ ‘Today Show’ Appearances Today

October 19, 2009

Reminder: Suzanne Somers is scheduled to appear on CNN’s “Larry King Live” tonight, just a day before release of her latest book“Knockout: Interviews With Doctors Who Are Curing Cancer, And How To Prevent Getting It In The First Place.”

Somers, who this weekend was selling her book on ShopNBC, also has appearances set for both this morning and Tuesday on NBC’s “The Today Show,” according to her Web site.

The blonde singer-actress takes a holistic approach to health and medicine, which has put her at odds with the traditional medical community. She stirs controversy for her views.

ShopNBC, Tell Us Something We Don’t Know: Suzanne Somers Is Not A Doctor

October 16, 2009

ShopNBC must have checked with its legal department, because the network is going to great lengths to warn viewers that Suzanne Somers’ new book on cancer isn’t intended as medical advice. Then what’s the point of the book?

Just as we predicted, Somers is doing pre-sales on her new book, “Knockout: Interviews With Doctors Who Are Curing Cancer, And How To Prevent Getting It In The First Place,” on ShopNBC.

The book is due out Oct. 20, and Somers is appearing on ShopNBC Thursday and throughout the weekend, selling it and other items from her jewelry and clothing line.

Somers this year moved over from her long-time home-shopping home HSN to ShopNBC, which is selling her book for $19.95.

Somers, a cancer survivor and best-selling author, has sparked a lot of controversy with her views on not only cancer but the use of bioidentical hormones by women. The medical community has blasted Somers for doling out medical and health advice, and Somers has defended herself against the criticism of traditional doctors.

On, the network gave viewers many caveats about Somers’ book.

“Suzanne Somers does not have formal medical or scientific training,” the site says. “The information presented in this book is in no way intended as medical advice or as a substitute for medical counseling. The information should be used in conjunction with the guidance and care of your physician.”

And that’s not all.

“Your physician should be aware of all medical conditions that you may have, as well as the medications and supplements you may be taking,” ShopNBC’s site says. “The author of this book is not a medical doctor.”

Does anyone not know that Somers isn’t an MD?

The site said that in “Knockout,” Somers “interviews doctors who are using innovative cancer treatments. She is presenting in this book her observation and personal experience of the various cancer treatments methods developed and practiced by doctors from around the world and their opinions.”

Recently Somers sparked a controversy over comments she purportedly made about actor Patrick Swayze’s cancer treatment, remarks published after he died.

So what’s in her cancer book?

“Somers shares her personal choices and outlines an array of options and theories she has found from doctors and researchers across the country, including alternative treatments, integrative protocols and ideas for managing cancer,” ShopNBC’s Web site says. “Somers experts also provide nutrition, lifestyle and dietary supplement opinions to help empower and give hope to every person who is touched by this disease.”

Somers has written 18 books, including the No. 1 New York Times bestseller “Ageless,” as well as bestsellers “Breakthrough,” “Keeping Secrets,” “Eat Great, Lose Weight,” “Get Skinny on Fabulous Food,” “Eat, Cheat and Melt the Fat Away,” “Suzanne Somers’ Fast and Easy” and “The Sexy Years.”

This visit to ShopNBC, Somers’ second one, coincides with her birthday.

Somers, a very savvy marketer, is set to appear on CNN’s “Larry King Live” next Monday, the day before her new book is released.
