GMA’s Tory Johnson Bringing ‘Deals’ To HSN

February 5, 2016

Our sister is a fan of Tory Johnson, a “Good Morning America” contributor and host of the morning show’s “Deals & Steals” segment. Well, HSN announced Thursday that it is making Johnson part of its “family.”

Johnson will be bringing exclusive deals and new brands to HSN every month, starting Feb. 12 at 10 p.m., with the premiere of “Tory Johnson: Deal Hunter.”

“Leading ‘Deals & Steals’ on ‘Good Morning America’ allows me to connect with terrific business owners across the country,” Johnson said in a canned statement.

“I’m excited to introduce HSN viewers to my favorites. With an hour in primetime, it will be an honor to present phenomenal products at significant savings, along with sharing the stories and successes of the creators and entrepreneurs behind the scenes.”

According to the press release, Johnson will introduce HSN customers to brands across the jewelry, clothing, accessories and home categories, “negotiating exclusive deals at the lowest price on the market.”

Each deal will be available for a limited time following each of Johnson’s “Deal Hunter” shows.

“People across America have fallen in love with Tory through her ‘Deals & Steals’ segment on ‘Good Morning America’ and we are excited to be introducing her to our consumers as she sources new and innovative brands for HSN,” HSN President Bill Brand said in his canned statement. “We can’t wait to give our consumers exclusive access to Tory’s style and eye for innovation.”

Ex-QVC Host Lisa Robertson Dishes On Stalkers

March 28, 2015

What was up with ex-QVC host Lisa Robertson’s appearance last week on “Good Morning America”?

Host Robin Roberts claimed that it was the first time that Robertson had ever talked about her multiple stalkers. We don’t think that is so.

We have no sympathy for nutjob stalkers, far from it. But in the journalism biz, there usually has to be a timely news peg to do a story. But there was none here, that we could see.

Robertson told Roberts that she was so fearful of her stalkers, she essentially became a shut-in except for work. Robertson talked about court proceedings against one of the crackpots that tracked her.

She also said that her stalkers weren’t the sole reason she left the home shopping network, but was part of a list of reasons.

The ex-host also said that she isn’t retired, and is enjoying sleeping in.

QVC Alum Lisa Robertson On “GMA,” Lisa Mason Comeback?

March 23, 2015

Our astute Facebook friend Maryam informed us that former QVC host Lisa Robertson is slated to make an appearance on “Good Morning America” tomorrow, Tuesday.

We don’t know if she’s a guest, a host, or what.

And has a good scoop. The site is reporting that former QVC host Lisa Mason is coming back to the home shopping network. Maybe it’s an effort to fill the Grand Canyon-sized gap left by Robertson’s departure.!!!

Congrats to TVShoppingQueens for breaking the news, and congrats to Mason for returning as a host. We hope Gino is doing well with his brain cancer treatments.

QVC Host Lisa Robertson, Stalkers And ‘Good Morning America’

April 18, 2014

The story about QVC host Lisa Robertson’s numerous stalkers went national, with “Good Morning America” even doing a segment on it.

Robertson provided a statement to ABC News that we thought worth republishing.

“We enjoy the connection we have with our audience from being open and sharing our personal stories. Unfortunately, one of the downsides to this is that people can take these connections too far and cross personal boundaries,” the statement — or should we cay the UNDERSTATEMENT — said.
