QVC’s Courtney Cason: We Say You Shouldn’t

September 16, 2014

We’ve been so busy at our day job, and covering the sad passing of Joan Rivers, that we hadn’t seen QVC’s “Courtney Says I Do” promotion.

We know people will disagree with us, but we find it a tad tacky to be discussing every detail of your impending nuptials the way host Courtney Cason is.

But then again, if the deal included getting our wedding dress designed by Mark Zunino, maybe we would change our tune.

The wedding is this Saturday, by the way. And Cason’s groom-to-be is adorable.

Here is what she blogged on QVC.com last week:

I can’t believe my wedding is just one week away. It’s weird to even type that out. It’s crazy to think that almost a year ago I wasn’t sure that I was going to be engaged anytime soon. Now it’s full on crunch time to marry the man of my dreams!

As an ex-QVC host pointed out, it’s a little risky to promote a host’s wedding. What if the marriage goes sour?

You may recall when then-QVC host Judy Crowell wed a fellow host, whose names escapes us now. It was a very short marriage, let’s put it that way.

We’re glad Crowell finally found the man of HER dreams, fellow QVC alum Paul Deasy (now on SHopHQ).

We also remember when one of our favorite bloggers wrote a lot about her coming fancy wedding to “Mr. Wonderful,” as she called him. Two years later, she was blogging about going on a date.

Needless to say, all her readers were asking her what the heck was up. She sounded a bit annoyed when she explained that she and Mr. Wonderful had divorced, and would people stop asking about her personal life.

Girlfriend, when you put your personal life out there, people are going to ask about it.

Any way, best of luck, Courtney. Seriously, God bless.

See Lisa Robertson’s Three Christmas Trees, And Learn About Self-Absorbed QVC Hosts

December 28, 2010

Damn, QVC host Lisa Robertson is getting way more hits than we are with her video blog.

On her Monday PM Style show word leaked out that Robertson’s blog, where she offers a tour of her gorgeously decorated home, had gotten more than 50,000 hits.

Robertson had not one, not two, but three different Christmas trees — each exquisitely trimmed — in her palacial home. In contrast, we have one three-foot fiber optic tree, with no ornaments, that we bought a few years ago at CVS for $25. And we love it.

Robertson is obviously way out of our league. In the 17-minute QVC video, we see one tree that’s decked out in bronze and gold-toned ornaments at the “Casa de Robertson.”

The second tree, in the dining room, is done up in blue, silver and cream-colored ornaments. Robertson has also strewn white feather boas around the room, on the chandelier and on her furniture.

Finally, Robertson has a red-and-gold themed tree — with more than 500 ornaments — in her family room. It’s a sight to be seen.

Our only gripe about the show-and-tell video is that Robertson was interviewed by QVC’s new and extremely annoying youth-skewing host, Courtney Cason.

She’s so perky she’s pesky: We’d like to hit her upside the head with a pot of pointsettias.

At the video’s end, Cason compliments Robertson on her homemade banana bread. Robertson tells Cason that now she can try the bread without worrying about messing up her lip gloss.

“I’m so self-absorbed, I can’t stand it,” Cason said.

“She’ll fit right in,” a laughing Robertson shot back without missing a beat.

We assume Robertson means that Cason will fit right in with all the other self-absorbed hosts on QVC.

You said it Lisa, not us.
