She was back on HSN recently as a vendor and looks terrific.

Don't have any idea why she left the 2nd time around.

What's she selling? Makeup?

She married Tony Little , divorced, then she came back and didn't stay long. Of course he was on selling his fitness stuff daily. I would have left too. I think they were only married a year or two. I remember when she was single and was on HSN. She had a couple of kids with her first hubby.

She did marry Tony Little, but her two sons are from her first husband. I could be wrong, but I do not think that she and Tony had any children together. I did see her as a vendor on HSN about a month ago and she looked great!!!

Her FB pages lists ahubby named Jeff, and a link to her own web page. She looks happy and has pic of her 2 sons on it as well.

Over the years I've seen her on all kinds of infomercials. She must be making a good living.

I remember when she was on HSN, at the end of her show she would say "(insert kids names), mommys coming home".

what a long strange trip it's been

I remember her appearing on the Q when she was married to Tony Little and he was selling a treadmill. He was not on the Q very long though and eventually went back to HSN. IIRC, she and Little were married for more than five years and during that time she did not work.

She did remarry recently.

I think that was Susan Jones (way, way back when) that used to say that at the end of her show.

I've been watching the shopping channels for way too long. {#emotions_dlg.blushing}

Did Susan Jones have kids? I thought Susan was the one who always talked about her dogs and acted kind of like "air headed".

Maybe I'm mistaken; but I do remember when Mindy was expecting and hosting a fashion show and all of a sudden they switched to a promo and when they came back a male host was had taken over. Seems she wasn't feeling well and had to leave.

Wow that was a long time ago.

Wow, you learn something new every day...I did not know she and Tony Little were married. But then, I don't watch that channel very often.

I didn't know that either. I can only take Mr. Little in small doses. He must drink a lot of red bull type of drinks. Too hyper. He isn't that fit either.

She was just on HSN a few days ago as a product rep.

I barely watch any HSN, but do flip over occasionally....and I saw her demonstrating the light wand that makes wrinkles and creases go away....light therapy. She and the host were having a hard time spitting out the facts, but the demos showed eye lifts from light and it looked pretty impressive. Did not buy, however....flipped to something else!

I remember when she was very young and engaged to "Dan" her first husband. She was so cute and vivacious. She often spoke of her grandma. I thought she worked "behind the scene" at HSN for awhile after she was off the air.

I read that she worked with Jennifer Stallone. The other day, she said "we" have the SSC cleanser on sale. I wonder if the machine is something Jennifer discovered. Mindy said she will be bringing more machines in the future. If those machines worked they would put alot of the cosmetic industry out of business. Almost $270 for a machine that makes wrinkles disappear around the eyes is a bit much. If it worked all over, most people would buy one.It will be interesting to read the reviews.

I always liked her and she did look fabulous when I caught her on HSN the other day.

I remember her from years ago when I watched HSN all the time, now hardly ever. I always thought she was adorable. I was a little disappointed in her when the Tony Little thing happened, she always seemed so happily married. You never know I guess.

Yes, she looked great and the host said "Welcome back".....I didn't know if they were welcoming her back as a rep or as a host.....

She used to do the promos for HSN that aired between show segments, remember? She did that for a couple of years, then they discontinued them.....

She was on HSN for a long time.....Wasn't she on when they still had "Tootie"?

Remember when they used to show bracelets, and one person was holding each end, and they used to pull it back and forth across the screen to show how it sparkled? Used to give me a headache.....HSN has come a long way.....LOL.....

I used to watch back then. Do you remember Hans? I just adored him. I do think Mindy was on back then also.

No I don't remember a "Hans".....I much preferred QVC's soft-sell approach and I only watched HSN sparingly.....Now HSN is getting nicer merchandise and the Q hosts are the shrill ones.....

Mindy was always my favorite HSN host.

I could not believe when she married Tony Little.{#emotions_dlg.scared}

As I recall I saw that machine that she was the rep for on the SSC website before their last appearance on HSN, but didn't watch many of the shows so I don't know if they brought it on as part of the SSC products?

Susan has two boys, as I recall, and that was her sign-off....."momma's coming home"
