ShopNBC Host Katina Forte Marks The Latest To Exit Home Shopping Network

July 19, 2012

The hits keep coming at ShopNBC — as in hosts making abrupt exits. The latest one is Katina Forte.

One of our dedicated readers tipped us off Wednesday that Forte was gone. ShopNBC had posted the news on Facebook.

“Katina Forte is no longer with ShopNBC,” the network posted.”We wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.”

This exit comes just weeks after host Shawn Wilsie’s departure in June.

Forte seemed to be happy about leaving.

On Tuesday she posted on Facebook, “This is one of the happiest days of my life! I am so excited about what’s next! My dreams are coming true! Thanks for the love. You will be missed.”

Forte’s fans were not happy campers, however, and several mentioned on Facebook the abrupt exit a few years ago of host Charla Rines, who was very popular.

“This station only hires vapid hosts,” one person posted on ShopNBC’s wall.

“If you are let Katina go to make room for Charla, I’d learn to be OK with that,” another posted,

“Katina, head over to QVC,” wrote another.

“Kat got a better offer don’t worry about her,” posted another.

“What a scummy operation. Just carnival barkers and snake oil salesmen left, with the exception of two or three,” added another.

“First Charla, then Shawn, now Katina. Are you nuts? Good luck Katina,” posted another.
