QVC vendor Tova Bognine has lost her husband, Oscar-winning actor Ernest Borgnine. He died Sunday in LA, and was 95.
Tova, a long-time QVC personality who sells perfume, is a stunning, gracious lady.
We send out our condolences to her, as have several QVC hosts.
Dan Wheeler posted on Facebook, “Tova, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am so sorry for your loss. I loved Ernie. He was always so kind to me and I was honored to know him. God bless you Tova during this difficult time. Love, Dan Wheeler.”
But our favorite comment on Ernest was from QVC host Rick Domeier on Facebook.
“I had the pleasure of introducing him to my wife and two boys a few years ago,” Domeier wrote. “I introduced him as ‘A WWII Veteran, and an Oscar winning Movie Star.’ He said to my boys, ‘Hey kids, you know Sponge Bob??!! I’m Mermaid man!!!’ And he laughed that great laugh. A true legend, and one helluva nice guy…RIP.”
