Evine Live jewelry vendor Samuel Benham, fellow tequila lover, you’re a man after our heart.
Last night on the home shopping network host Heather Hall was talking about Benham, a courtly man who designs lovely artisan-crafted jewelry. Heather Hall mentioned to turquoise king Paul Deasy that she had gone out to dinner with Benham at the Vegas jewelry show, and he ordered a bottle of expensive tequila. And he apparently enjoyed it.
We wouldn’t have guessed that Benham liked snaffing down pricey tequila, so he rose a notch in our eyes. It’s our liquor of choice.
And speaking of Evine Live, on the network’s second-quarter call yesterday with analysts CEO Mark Bozek said that the new cookware lines by Paula Deen and chef Todd English are selling extremely well.
As you might remember, Deen and English are cast-offs from other home shopping networks. QVC dropped Deen like a hot potato during the controversy over racist remarks she made years ago. And HSN and English parted ways after he showed up in the tabloids inebriated and pawing willing women in public places.
Deen, by the way, is rumored to be one of the contestants on the new season of “Dancing With The Stars.”
