Jewelry Designer Nolan Miller Returns To QVC After Two-Year Absence Due To Battle With Cancer

July 2, 2010

Clothing and jewelry designer Nolan Miller, suffering from cancer, has been absent from QVC for two years. Yes, his jewelry has still been sold on the home shopping channel, but his business partner, Mark Zunino, would present it.

Well, Miller will finally be back on QVC this Fourth of July weekend, QVC host Mary Beth Roe says on her Facebook page.

“I hope everyone is looking forward to the holiday weekend coming up!” Roe writes. “We are so blessed to live in a country with the freedoms we have, so celebrate! I’m celebrating the fact that Nolan Miller is coming to West Chester, PA, for his shows on Sun. at 7pm and Monday at 4pm. He hasn’t been able to make the trip east for almost 2 years! Join us to see him ‘live’ in the studio! 18th anniversary for him on the Q!”

The last time we saw a photo of Miller, he was looking gaunt and sickly. We hope he’s conquered his cancer.

Designer Wayne Scot Lukas, A Vet Of HSN, And ShopNBC Have Parted Ways

January 4, 2010

Celebrity stylist and fashion designer Wayne Scot Lukas and ShopNBC are parting ways, the designer tells us.

Lukas did not offer us many details, other than to say he was not happy at the Minnesota-based home shopping network.

Lukas moved to ShopNBC from HSN earlier this year, and he was soon followed by actress/entrepreneur Suzanne Somers. She left HSN after more than a dozen years there to go to ShopNBC.

Lukas did a line of knits, easy-fitting pieces for both HSN and ShopNBC.

These Lukastyle items are now on clearance on ShopNBC.com.

Handsome Lukas, who has the more gorgeous hair we’ve ever seen on a man (but he doesn’t bat on our team, if you get our drift) has a biting sense of humor, full of double entendres. We caught him once on ShopNBC, and he did not seem like a happy camper.

He didn’t like the camera-work on his show, and his attempted bantering with the host did not work as well as his rapport with Colleen Lopez, who he always cracked up, on HSN.

HSN and ShopNBC have been swapping many jewelry and clothing designers this year, almost too many to list here. For example, jewelry designer Dallas Prince went to HSN from ShopNBC.

We hope you find a new home-shopping home, Wayne!
