Ex-QVC Host Lisa Robertson’s Squeeze Is Tattooed Trainer

May 1, 2015

We don’t know why a British tabloid, the Daily Mail, is so obsessed with ex-QVC host Lisa Robertson’s love life. But it is, and apparently so are a lot of other folks.

The London rag’s story on Robertson and her younger 38-year-old boyfriend, her tattooed personal trainer, spread like wildfire among QVC customers.

There’s been speculation about Robertson’s romantic life, sexual orientation and her pursuit by a horde of nut job stalkers for years.

Once she left QVC last December, Robertson started posting photos of her on vacation canoodling with her new beau, Eric McGee. The posts were a shock because Robertson had kept her personal life close to the vest.

According to the Daily Mail, McGee is divorced with two kids, and he and Robertson have met each other’s families. He even appeared on the home shopping network several times with her.

The Daily Mail dug up some dirt on McGee’s past financial woes.

His new life of luxury travel is a far cry from just four years ago when he and his wife Amy filed for bankruptcy with debts of almost $200,000.

In court documents seen by Daily Mail Online, Eric claimed he had personal assets worth just $11,000 and owed $189,243.

He said he had just $36.67 in two bank accounts, owned clothes worth $200 and household furniture valued at $1000.

His biggest asset was a 2007 Dodge Charger with 77,500 miles on the clock he valued at $9,475.

There have been plenty of snarky comments about Robertson’s new beau, that he’s too young; below her station, etc.

Here’s what we think: She and he look happy and very much in love in their photos.

No. 2 — This is not England with its royalty or India with its castes. We are all equals here. McGee has a job, seems to be treating Robertson well, and is hot as far as we are concerned. He’s not “beneath” anyone.

Good for both of them!

Does Ex-QVC Host Lisa Robertson Have A Boyfriend?

March 12, 2015

We’ve been out of action for a few months, while we were on the mend. That left us a lot of time to watch home shopping while the ol’ ankle healed.

Here are a few observations from along the way:

We always liked Chris Scanlon when she was an HSN host, and were happy to see she was returning to home shopping on a new net, Evine Live. But her product was a hanger that bore a remarkable resemblance to those that HSN Invention Queen Joy Mangano sells. Is Scanlon trying to be “Huggable”?

We will still hate the Evine Live name forever, but we think it was brilliant for the network to introduce its Top Value, Today’s Special or whatever else you want to call it at 10 p.m. each night, two hours before HSN and QVC. This change has us tuning in to Evine Live before midnight.

Why is Lisa Robertson smiling?

Kudos to the home shopping nets for their recent jewelry shows. Evine Live did a particularly nice job with its live broadcasts from Tucson. Wish we were there.

We missed the soiree that Evine Live held at the Plaza in the Big Apple during Valentine’s Day weekend, when the channel introduced its new moniker. Lisa Vanderpump, Paula Deen and playboy chef Todd English were all there, as was Giggy, who dresses better than we do.

But there was an uproar from fans of the Three Amigos — Chuck Clemency, Paul Deasy and Michael Valitutti — because they weren’t included in the festivities. Some viewers feared that Evine Live’s new management was sacking the dynamic trio. It was a tempest in a teapot, because these jewelry mavens appear to be quite secure, and deservedly so, as Evine Live vendors.

Talk show host Wendy Williams, who at one pointed lived in our town of Montclair, N.J., had a jewelry line on QVC that never got traction. In fact, former QVC host Lisa Robertson made several appearances on Williams’ show. Well, Williams has now joined the flock of ex-QVC vendors who have been picked up by HSN. But it looks like Williams is doing apparel for HSN, not baubles.

Speaking of Robertson, QVC viewers continue to be obsessed with her love life. She posted photos on Facebook of her recent vacation, which showed her with a younger man. He is apparently her trainer, Eric. Is her also her boyfriend? Some claim that Lisa said on Facebook that he is, but we couldn’t find any such comment.

Anyway, if he is her squeeze, good for her. If not, that’s cool, too.
