Sunday Wrap-Up And Home Shopping Dish: HSN’s Fran Drescher Turned Down Threesome With Warren Beatty, But Ex-HSN Vendor Janice Dickinson Was One Of The 12,775 Women He Bagged

January 3, 2010

Warren Beatty proposed having a threesome with HSN vendor/actress Fran Drescher, according to a new book on the legendary actor and skirt-chaser. And Beatty actually slept with model Janice Dickinson, a one-time HSN jewelry peddler.

That’s just some of the juicy gossip to be found in the Sunday papers today about the celebrities that sell their wares on HSN and QVC.

The dish about Beatty and Drescher and Dickinson is in a story that the New York Post did about a new tell-all biography on the actor called “Star: How Warren Beatty Seduced America” by Peter Biskind.

Fran Drescher nixed threesome

Drescher, who will be on HSN today selling her line of skincare products, was up for a part in the 1987 bomb “Ishtar.” Beatty was having an affair with the movie’s leading lady, Isabelle Adjani, who complimented Drescher on her beauty.

And when Beatty suggested that the threesome have dinner that night, “just the three of us,” Drescher got the hint that he was not just talking about sharing a pizza. She declined the menage a tois offer.

Drescher shouldn’t have felt that special, however. The book claims that Beatty has bedded almost 13,000 women.

The Post’s Page Six also noted in its “Sightings” section that actress Charlize Theron was spotted buying a ring at the Me & Ro store in Los Angeles. Me & Ro do a jewelry line for HSN.

Sunday’s New York Daily News has a story headlined “16 Ways to Boot Winter” that includes a pair of boots from Stefani Greenfield’s Curations line for HSN. The boots are on clearance, at $99.

And finally, Sunday’s Parade Magazine, in its “Personality Parade,” talks about Ellen DeGeneres’ pets. The item mentions that DeGeneres owns a pet-care company named Halo. QVC sells the Halo pet food line.

HSN Introduces Kurgo ‘SkyBox Booster Seat’ For Dogs And Other Pet Products, To Match ‘Dog Whisperer’ Cesar Millan And Ellen DeGeneres’ Offerings On QVC

December 28, 2009

Taking a page out of QVC’s book, HSN is now selling a line of higher-end pet products from Kurgo, including car seats.

Even in a recession, Americans are still spending on their dogs and cats, which is probably why HSN has decided to start offering the Kurgo goods.

The merchandise, ranging in price from $23 to $80, includes harnesses, back-seat restraints and a travel carrier. Our favorite, however, was a Skybox Booster Seat for small pooches, like our parents’ min-pin Max or our neighbor’s Yorkie.

QVC offers a collection of pet products from the Cesar Millan, the animal behaviorist whose show “Dog Whisperer” airs on the National Geograpihc Channel.

My mom just bought a fancy dog-bowl “Neater Feeder Spill Proof Feeding System” for Max, for $27, on QVC.

The set holds bowls in place so that water and dog food from Max’s dishes won’t ruin my mom’s new wood kitchen floor.

Even Ellen DeGeneres is selling a line of premium dog food on QVC named Halo.
