On the morning of August 28 as I was getting ready for work, Joan Rivers inexplicably popped into my mind. For some reason, I began wondering what the world—and QVC—would be like without the inimitable Joan. It wasn’t until an hour or so later while driving to work that I heard the news that Joan had been admitted to Mount Sinai Hospital after undergoing an endoscopy in a Manhattan clinic.
Like the rest of the world, Joan was in my thoughts during the following week as news continued to come in about her condition. Just when it sounded like she was improving, he... Continue Reading

Twenty years have passed since Program Host Rick Domeier joined QVC on October 10, 1994. Now, he’s happily married with two boys and one of the most recognizable faces and personalities on QVC. “A lot has happened in 20 years,” Rick muses. “All in all, it’s been a wonderful experience.”
I first met Rick shortly after I started at QVC about 16 years ago. I took my mom on the QVC Studio Tour. Rick appeared along the tour route and stopped and spoke to the group, and I remember how excited and impressed everyone was (myself included!). Work... Continue Reading

Active! I wanted to make sure I gave you the full scoop on the athleisure looks, as well—and what better time to dish... Continue Reading

Chili is a great year round meal. I like it in winter with a loaf of crusty bread, and in the summer with nacho chips. It’s perfect for a party because you can leave it on a warm burner on the stove or in a crock pot and let guests serve themselves. I admit that I usually make chili with a seasoning packet and a pound of ground beef for a quick meal. But for special occasions, I use this 2 Die 4 Chili recipe.
My friend Tova Borgnine first shared this recipe with me in 2004. She got it from a dear friend of hers, C.V. Wood, Jr., an amusement park developer and the man who brou... Continue Reading

One of my favorite actresses is Sophia Loren. I first saw her in Marriage, Italian Style (1964) with Marcello Mastroianni. About 20 years ago a version that had been dubbed in English was on television. I taped it and watch it once a year. The quality isn’t great, and the movie hadn’t been formatted to fit TV screens, so most of the time I only see half of the actors’ faces! Recently I purchased the original Italian version (with subtitles) on DVD, but I prefer to watch the version I have on tape, bad though it is!
What does all this have to do wit... Continue Reading

It’s time to get into the spring of things! Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and the days are getting longer. The change in season always gives me a renewed sense of inspiration. I’m suddenly motivated to clean, renovate, and redecorate. But sometimes I find myself fresh out of ideas. This year, I turned to Valerie Parr Hill, home décor expert, for her top 10 tips for refreshing a home. I’m now convinced that small changes really can make a big difference. And you don’t have to break the bank, either—Valerie’s first two tips won’t cost ... Continue Reading
