...is now doing infomercials with Rhonda Shear for Auuu Bra's.

I was wondering where she had been hiding.

Do you mean Judy Kroll?

kmcshopper1301256817.256305 PostsRegistered 8/10/2007

Is she also known as Judy Crowell?

Beebo- Sorry, we must have been posting at the same time.

Thank you KMC- It's Crowell!

Her main job is being married to Paul Deasy, who is the gem guy at Shop NBC. That's not meant to be a putdown, I think they are a wonderful team. She also "designed" some items for Shop NBC, I don't think they were that successful.

Judy Crowell married Paul Deasey while they were still hosts at QVC; they left and went to HSN where they hosted for a while. Now Paul sells jewelry on ShopNBC. Judy has an accessories line that she sells there as well. They are vendors, not hosts.

She was also married to that Jeffrey guy.

I just did a search for Judy Crowell on Shop NBC and the 15 items I found were on sale or clearance. I don't know her accessories label. Another line that seems to have bit the dust is Encore by Daniel Kiviat (another HSN guy). Shop NBC is having a hard time getting into the apparel business. Can anyone tell me a successful ongoing line that they carry?

I don't shop on ShopNBC, only HSN and Q and that is enough! But I don't think NBC is as successful of course. Seems as though Judy Crowell and her husband can't stay put long enough in one place.

I love to laugh and dance......

Shop NBC used to be really high end and I think it is trying to appeal to more people and just has not gotten there yet.

Anyone else remember her very brief marriage to Jeff Hewson? Big scandal at the time..

I've read about her first marriage in Kathy Levine's first book. Kathy was my intro to QVC, that woman could sell me anything. But Judy was really one of my favorite hosts, too. I don't look anything like her, but if she wore something, it was so cute on her that I would buy it.

I think Paul and Judy will stick around ShopNBC because his jewelry line seems to be doing very well.

The only apparel line that seems to stay the course on ShopNBC is Pamela McCoy's. She and her husband were hosts on the channel for many years. I was surprised that Daniel Kiviat's line didn't do well. His Maggie Sweet line on HSN sold like crazy for a long time. They used to even do Maggie Sweet marathons.

The only vendor I enjoy watching on ShopNBC is Chuck Clemency. He has a couple of jewelry lines that are very nice. And he is very entertaining.

Yes, I remember that. The marriage didn't last long enough to get through the honeymoon. He was Jeffrey "Thanks for the Jeffrey" Hewson. I recently heard on this forum that he suffered a major stroke or something similar just a few months ago.

BTW, they sell those Ahhh bras on HSN. Don't buy if you need real support.

I still miss Judy. She is one of my favorite Q hosts of all time. It seems, though, she and hubby are determined to stay in the home channel shopping world.

I still remember her doing the old Kirks Folly shows with Jen Kirk-what hoots they were together! That's when Q and those crazy Folly shows were elaborate and so relaxing-a real few hours of escape.

I saw part of that infomerical for Ahhh Bras, and recognized Judy right away. I've seen Bob Bowersox and Steve I-can't-remember-his-last-name on infomercials as well. Makes sense, they certainly have the experience.

edited to say: Good grief, blackbeltshopper1. Maybe the OP is more concerned with, I don't know, running her life than following the careers of TV hosts.

BOY, YOU DON'T KNOW SQUAT.

{#emotions_dlg.scared} Some reason you needed to yell?

BTW, the plural of bra is bras. Apostrophe s is the possessive.

Peaches, the name you are trying to think of is Steve Bryant!! I too enjoyed a lot of the former hosts. I also liked Suzanne Runion. She's been quite successful on HSN. I liked Kathy Levine & Judy Crowell. Oh well..the good old days!

Jeffery did suffer a stroke, among other things. I think he lives in New Mexico? It was in a paper that he had suffered from alcoholism and ruined his health. Went job to job. I think he raked Judy over the coals in a National gossip rag magazine, then things went sour for him. Sounds like he may have been drinking when he made the comments. Sad.

How do I know this? Hahaha. On one of the threads about a month ago Jeff Hewson came up. A poster included the links to the newspapers where I read this. I think if one wanted to know about him they google his name, Jeffery Hewson and link will come up.

I do miss Judy. She was so gracious, and knowledgeable about her items! She went over every measurement and detail, inside and out. You knew what you were buying. Not like now, where they say, "buy this, you will look like Madison Ave", or "look like money"

Spring break time?

I think this poster left her computer open and some kids are having fun. All posts from her have been nasty in this childish way today.

If not, then her siggy line is really ironic.

When I get tired of shopping, I sit down and try on shoes~

I shop @ Q, Shop NBC and HSN, so I don't remember which one this host was on but she cracked me up. She had short scrunched hair and glasses, and was always doing something off the wall on air. She once rolled across the stage in a chair behind the on air hosts. She just disappeared around 12-18 months ago. If anyone has a clue, what was her name and where'd she go???

Hey blackbelt, unusual for you-I always respected you from the few posts I have seen. Sorry if bad day. JUDY??? Love her. I always remember the week my daughter left home for her own place-I was so very sad as it was my first chick to leave the nest and I was a wreck. I ordered two angel throws(now owned by the dog) for her room as now it was the guest room and was asked to talk-Judy. I told her briefly why buying when asked and she looked actually as if she was going to cry. Very genuine person and she was a riot with those crazy Kirks Folly shows-those were really good times with those fantasy sets and shows. Miss her!
