QVC Morning Host Pat James-DeMentri’s Bad Boy Ex-Husband (We Think) Is Fired From New York City TV Station

May 22, 2010

We don’t know if Pat James-DeMentri is still married to him or divorced from him, but the QVC’s host’s one-time better half got himself in trouble again. In fact, newscaster Vince DeMentri has been fired from WPIX-TV in New York City, according to the New York Daily News Saturday.

The tabloid’s story, headlined “DeMentri Gets Canned From Channel 11 News,” says he was let go just days after allegedly slapping a chauffeur during a fight over a parking space.

DeMentri joined WPIX in March after getting in trouble, and scandals, at a station in Philadelphia “after bedding a co-anchor and engaging in an overly public beef with the station’s weatherman,” according to the News.

While working for WCBS in New York City in 2001, DeMentri was arrested for posing as a federal agent to get access to Ground Zero just two days after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Those charges were dropped.
