Is couture furrier, and QVC vendor, Dennis Basso jockeying to get his own show on a TV network other than the home shopping channel?

That’s what the New York Post’s Page Six said Monday. An item in the gossip column noted that Basso, a Jersey boy who does faux fur coats for QVC, is celebrating his 30 years in fashion.

Page Six said that Basso is doing his fashion show Tuesday at Lincoln Center, and that some of his loyal customers — Joan Collins, fellow QVC vendor Joan Rivers and Ivana Trump would be in the front row.

The column also noted that last week Basso was spied at lunch with two bigwig CAA agents, which started the rumor mill going that he might be trying to line-up a TV show.

If QVC vendors Isaac Mizrahi, Rachel Zoe and Heidi Klum can do it, to name just a few, why not Basso?

QVC’s Red Carpet Party From L.A. Rocks With Stars Like Joan Collins, Nolan Miller’s Date

March 6, 2010

We came in late to watch QVC’s “The Buzz on the Red Carpet” from L.A. Friday night, and were surprised to see Patti Reilly in the West Chester studio.

We checked the online forums to see what we missed, and apparently the home shopping network had trouble getting its live feed from the Left Coast and Reilly had to fill in at the last minute until they got things fixed.

Anyway, we were pretty impressed with QVC’s celebrity-studded pre-Oscar event at the swank Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. Lisa Robertson was doing the selling, while Mary Beth Roe and Shawn Killinger were conducting celebrity interviews. Joan Collins, QVC vendor Nolan Miller’s date, and Tia Carrere were among those in the house.

A still drop-dead gorgeous (and fellow Northwestern alum) Cindy Crawford was hawking Meaningful Beauty products, and former entertainment-magazine show host Nancy O’Dell introduced her QVC fashion jewelry line.

“I’ve loved QVC for a long time,” O’Dell said.

QVC vendors Isaac Mizrahi, Rachel Zoe, Chaz Dean and Bruce Makowsky were also on the air.

The fun will continue Saturday night.
