The Q We Love

Why Did Kimberly Wells Leave HSN, Go To ShopNBC?

Started 1341607484.82 in The Q We Love | Last reply 1343048010.55 by robomo

I was flipping the channels between QVC and ShopNBC today and saw Kimberly Wells hosting. I know she's been on ShopNBC for a few months, but I don't know how long she's been there and why she left HSN. ShopNBC seems like such a last place competitor compared to QVC and HSN.

Kimberly Wells has been on Shop NBC for several years now!

Okay, didn't know that. But why did she leave HSN?

I think they got rid of several hosts at one time and she was one of them. I find her voice to be like fingernails on a chalkboard......

I wish I could answer your question but I do not watch HSN. Had she been on HSN for a long time?

I actually really like ShopNBC. If they had the ability to add items to a wish list, I would shop there more. They certainly offer more multiple payment options on more items than the Q.

I don't ever remember her being on HSN. ON SNBC she's the only host who works with Suzanne Sommers.

I don't know how long she was on HSN. I remember seeing Kimbelry on there maybe 8, 10 years ago. She used to work with Suzanne Sommers when Suzanne was on HSN.

Thanks to all for their posts.

Kimberly Wells used to host the early morning shows on HSN, 6 to 9 AM, her cohost was Kerry McNally. never saw her with Suzanne Somers on HSN.

Since she left HSN she has also gotten a divorce, perhaps that had something to do with her relocating.

I don't remember her at HSN either.........and I watch mostly overnight. Shivan and Rachel used to do overnights for many years..........

I remember her on HSN and she was as annoying there as she is on Shop NBC. Like another poster stated her voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard. She kisses Suzanne's behind and Suzanne kisses hers. They are made for each other. I do watch Shop NBC occasionally but they are like the uncle you wished had stayed home on Christmas so I find myself scrambling for the remote pronto. I also believe that Shop NBC is like the happy hunting ground for hosts that have left other channels.

I'd say I wish HSN would take her back, but I watch them more than shopnbc. I simply canNOT watch her. Everytime she's on the channel is changed. She seems like such an odd pairing with Suzanne. I really don't understand how those two ended up together.

I love ShopNBC too. I have never had a problem with customer service, and in fact I purchased a ring as a top value and about a month later the same ring was advertised at a lower price. I received and email from ShopNBC that they were crediting my account for the difference. I never asked, they did it automatically so how is that for customer service? I love their quality on many things and the value pays. I have several pieces of nice jewelry from this channel. I also love their sales. They have very nice sales. I have never had a problem and have shopped there for several years. I only wish I had tried them when they had the spectacular Jewerly years ago. I started at the tail end of that.

Me too.....thought I was the only one. Between her and Nancy on the Q, I have to click them off.

Her voice bothers me so I cannot listen to her.

This is one host who truly bothers me; I was surprised to see her with Suzanne; I would suspect she chooses the host she wants.

I do enjoy a lot of the shows on Shopnbc. however and also love their value pays.

One morning she and Kerry called Kathy Levine (when she had that awful clothing line on hsn!) very early- live tv tells all! Kathy was obvioulsy NOT happy! When Kathy was back on air for her next show she referenced the call and said she was playing it up. I don't think so! Becasue shortly after each host left pretty abruptly, there one day gone the next.

She has been on a few years. Suzanne Sommers only lets her be the host.

Libby Floyd is the one who left nbc. She used to be on the now defunct shoptathome.

Kimberly's voice also bothers me, as well as few of the other hosts over there.

Was I the only one who saw Libby on a cooking show on the cooking channel not so long ago? Don't recall the name of it, but the show's premise was to take people who cannot cook and make them chefs - Libby was booted off pretty early into it. I really liked her on the shopping channel and wish she would return.

I don't recall Kimberly on HSN, but she has been on SNBC for quite some time now. She's okay, but not even close to being a favorite for me.
