Dave King’s Wedding, Daniel Green Back, Gorga Out In Montclair

January 5, 2017

A bit of brief home shopping catch-up, since we’re under the weather and have to get some rest.

Former QVC host and actor Dave King kicked off the New Year by tying the knot with his lady love, Jenny Repko, in Manhattan Beach in Cali. Congrats to all.

Former Evine host Daniel Green, who left the network last year to break out as a chef and to hawk pots in infomercials, has turned up on the No. 3 home shopping channel again. We don’t know what that’s about, but it looks like the dashing Brit is back with “The Sizzle.”

And finally, Melissa Gorga of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” fame, has apparently closed the shop she had opened in our town, Montclair, N.J. Our talented colleague at our day job, Joan Verdon, broke the story.

What’s the home shopping connection? Gorga is one of the many women from the Bravo “Housewives” franchises to do a jewelry line. Her’s was for HSN.

HSN’s Joy Mangano Sells Record-Breaking 216,000 Pillow Sets

July 29, 2014

We posted a blog awhile ago when HSN mother of invention Joy Mangano introduced her line of pillows. We got a lot of comments from customers who bought them, and hated them. And a lot of people may be about to be disappointed.

Mangano broke a record on HSN this weekend when she brought back her Comfort and Joy MemoryCloud pillows and sold nearly half a million of them, or over 216,000 sets, the network said Monday.

That performance shattered HSN’s previous record, also set by Mangano, for the most units of a single item sold in a single day on the home shopping network.

Mangano beat her own prior record of 174,000 units sold in one day of her Forever Fragrant Odor Eliminating, which she set in 2010.

JOY

“All I can say is WOW!” Mangano said in a canned statement. “This was a hallmark day in my career and I am blessed to be able to share my products through the power of HSN. I pride myself on offering products designed to make people’s lives a little easier. Days like these make me so thankful for the incredible loyalty my fans have shown me over the years.”

The “Summer Comfort Home” event was part of HSN’s month-long 37th birthday celebration, which also featured collections rom two Bravo “Housewives”: NeNe Leakes of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and Melissa Gorga of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

At the gym, when we’re on the elliptical machine, we often watch Bravo at night. Just last week we were watching “Housewives of New Jersey” and saw Gorga wearing a striking gold collar-type necklace.

Well, it is from her HSN jewelry line, the “Grecian Goddess” collar, for $30, item number 354-423.

We were unimpressed with NeNe’s cold-shoulder top.

HSN is going to party-hardy for its 37th birthday, bringing us such polarizing celebs as hip-hop artist Nicki Minaj, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” reality star NeNe Leakes and Melissa Gorga of the Jersey “Housewives.” Shaquille O’Neal will even be in the house.

We don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

The month-long home shopping shindig will include a $50,000 jewelry giveaway, which sounds like a great idea to us. Hundreds of baubles, ranging from fine gold and gemstones to fashion statement pieces will be awarded weekly via the HSN Arcade at HSN.com, the network said in a press release Tuesday.

On July 11, “fashion and beauty vanguard, global entertainer and multi-platform recording artist Nicki Minaj will once again push beauty industry boundaries with the exclusive launch of her latest fragrance MINAJESTY Nicki Minaj Exotic Edition on HSN,” the network said.

On July 28, “your favorite housewives will make HSN their new home for style,” according to HSN’s press release.

Leakes will introduce NENE LEAKES, her exclusive new fashion line for HSN. Gorga will also make her official debut on HSN with an exclusive line of fashion jewelry.
