Ex-Evine Host Sarah Anderson Comes To HSN

January 6, 2017

Several of our readers have pointed out that ex-Evine host Sarah Anderson is now at HSN.

She hasn’t been added to HSN’s host list on its website yet, but she has an HSN Facebook page and has posted a number of photos of her being on the air on the No. 2 home shopping network.

On another note, fans of Jennifer Flavin and her HSN line, Serious Skincare, should tune in to the Golden Globes this weekend. The three daughters she had with super action-star Sylvester Stallone will collectively be serving as Miss Golden Globe for the award ceremony.

Basically, Sophia, 20, Sistine, 18, and Scarlet, 14, will be handing out statues at the awards, which are bestowed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

This ceremony is usually a lot more fun and raucous than other award shows, because alcohol is served to the stars as they await word of who won and who lost.

You Go Girls: HSN’s ‘Hot In Hollywood’ Laurie Feltheimer Heeds Our Advice, And Takes Jennifer Stallone For A Celebratory Dinner

October 5, 2010

People never seem to take our advice.

We gave our brother recommendations of Boston eateries when he went to Beantown to see the Yankees play that evil band, the Red Sox. He and his wife didn’t go to any of them.

We recommended, to that same brother and other friends, our favorite places and restaurants in Scottsdale (Mastro’s, The Spotted Donkey Cantina, Carlsbad Tavern), and no one went to any of them.

We suggest places for friends to buy great, inexpensive clothes, and they don’t go.

So imagine our pleasant surprise when we we tagged on Facebook Monday by none other than Laurie Feltheimer, who does the Hot in Hollywood apparel and accessory line for HSN.

It was a photo of Feltheimer and Jennifer Stallone, who sells her Serious Skincare line on HSN, both raising glasses of wine, in a toast.

Awhile back we suggested that Laurie, who is married to Lionsgate studio chief Jon Feltheimer, take Jennifer, who is married to Sylvester Stallone, to dinner in thanks. That’s because Sly Stallone’s action flick, “The Expendables,” gave Jon a blockbuster box office hit when he really needed one, to help fend off corporate raider Carl Icahn.

So here is what the Facebook tag said yesteday:

“Hi Linda S. Moss! Laurie and I love your blog…so fun, interesting and informative (https://homeshoppingista.wordpress.com/). Laurie took you up on your suggestion, and took Jennifer out to dinner last night to celebrate Expendables going over $100 million in box office! Excellent idea! My Best, Molly Gilles, assistant to Laurie Feltheimer.”

Thanks, Laurie and Molly, for actually taking my advice!

And congrats to all for hitting the $100 million mark on “The Expendables.”

HSN Vendors’ Six Degrees Of Separation: Jennifer’s Husband Sylvester Stallone Helps Laurie’s Spouse, Lionsgate Honcho Jon Feltheimer, Fend Off Icahn

August 18, 2010

In the HSN “family,” one vendor’s husband may have helped another vendor’s husband keep control of his company.

We’re taking about Jennifer Flavin’s husband, action movie star Sylvester Stallone, saving the bacon of Laurie Feltheimer’s husband, movie studio chief Jon Feltheimer.

Sylvester Stallone have given Lionsgate a hit with The Expendables

Flavin, as any home shopping fan knows, sells the Serious Skincare line on HSN. Laurie has an apparel and accessory line called Hot in Hollywood on HSN. Here’s the deal.

Laurie’s husband Jon, whose nickname is “Felt,” runs Lionsgate, a film and TV studio that has produced movies like the “Saw” film series, the Tyler Perry money makers, and the hot Emmy-winning TV hit drama “Mad Men.”

We interviewed Jon at Lionsgate in Santa Monica two years ago when we were working for place whose name we refuse to say, and profiled the company.

At the Emmys that year in LA, where “Mad Men” won the award for best drama, we saw the show’s leading man Jon Hamm give Jon Feltheimer a warm embrace at the Governor’s Ball after the awards.

But that was then, when Lionsgate was the toast of the town. This is now. Lionsgate has recently had a string of dud movies. That provided an opening for corporate raider Carl Icahn, who has mounted a hostile takoever bid against Lionsgate, increasing his stake in the publicly traded company.

The battle between Jon Feltheimer, Lionsgate and pesky and persistent Icahn, who has blasted Lionsgate management for producing box-office bombs this year, has been going on for months. It’s hard to keep track of it.

Laurie's Today's Special

Wall Street analysts agreed that Lionsgate needed a blockbuster film to prove that management still knows how to create a big movie. And Flavin’s husband, Stallone, provided it in “The Expendables,” a Lionsgate film.

The action flick, which also features Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke, was No. 1 at the box office this past weekend, raking in $35 million.

Stallone’s potential rescue of “Felt” and Lionsgate may wind up one of the most important feats he’s ever performed.

Laurie should take Jennifer for a nice dinner, either on the West Coast or when they’re in St. Petersburg at the same time to appear on the Southern Channel.

Anyway, Laurie had HSN’s Today’s Special Wednesday: a ruffled military-style jacket for $50.

While we’re at it, host Bobbi Ray Carter’s eyes are looking awful wide open and slanted up, unnaturally so. We know you’ll slam us for saying this, but we think she’s had some work done.
