I understand she has a Facebook thingie going on, but I don't do Facebook so I haven't heard anything about what she may be doing these days.  when she first left Shop there was some talk about her going to another shopping channel.

but, I haven't heard anything recently. can anyone update us?

here is her latest facebook post... i think she is still looking for a job:

 

hi ladies, you folks crack me up! yeh, i'm off the roof and back on the ground. (wow, cleaning gutters in heels and black jeans is a killer.) now when april showers come i'll be inside breathing a sigh of relief that all water is moving away from the foundation. all is good. working from home putting a plan together. (ok, that's a task i haven't done in years.) bring it on. hope all of you are well!on Friday

I don't do Facebook either so I appreciate this info on Charla. I really liked her and miss her on ShopNBC.

I liked her, she didn't oversell an item like so many other hosts do.

Love me, love my rescues!!!!!

I liked her, thought she was a riot.   I haven't watched SNBC since she's been gone.

Seems like since she left, all they sell are WATCHES!!! They don't have any hosts now that I really like.

Love me, love my rescues!!!!!

I loved Charla.......very genuine and fun to watch....hope she shows up somewhere soon (as a host, not a vendor).

I typed in Charla Rines in the You Tube search and a video came up with her from 1990, in a commercial about having your child become a star. She sounds entirely different , face looks virtually the same.

Isn't this the channel that the 2 hosts that are married and on the Q for yrs,then moved to HSN,then to Shop NBC.??????

Haven't seen this couple for quite some time on any shop channel I tune into just to get a break from reruns.

Appreciate the update. Charla's an acquired taste & I grew to love her presentations!

ShopNBC seems determined to commit slow suicide. Charla's exit is just one of the many examples of the wrong-headed decisions that make that channel not only unwatchable but unshoppable as well.

Viva...you're thinking of Paul Deasy and Judy Crowell...........Charla was the lady with the very short very blonde hair who was always on with Isomers and Manuella.  I think she has always been with ValueVision/ShopNBC.

She has a face book page- she has a bunch of friends. Right now she is pretty much home with her daughter. She does some jobs off and on. I hope she ends up on HSN - I do not think she would fit with the conservative QVC. They are too straight and narrow and have no sense of humor. Charla has the same sense of humor as Lucy  in I love Lucy had. She is very funny and contagious to watch. When I first watched her- I thought she was crazy- and the more I watched her I grew to love her!

I want to add that SNBC sells too too many watches!! How do they make it with all the watch shows? When I turn them on and see a watch I change the channel right away. So so boring!!!

Wow!  She looked (and sounded) amazing in that old commercial video!

Charla was, for me anyway, an acquired taste.  I grew to like her and hope she finds something good.  I think she enjoys being on camera.

Does she smoke?  That would account for the voice change. 

Too bad that SNBC has gone to being the watch channel.  BTW, if you like rugs, Dave King is on right now with a rug show.

I also miss that they used to have a lot more GOOD find jewelry...18k gold, stuff in 950 platinum, premium gems, etc.   Now they seem to have mostly costume (plated & silver) stuff and junky gems.  :( 

Bippity boppity BOOYAH!

You are thinking of Pam & West McCoy.  They were also let go awhile back.

Charla said on-air that she was a smoker for many years, although I believe she had quit.  I do think that's why her voice was so low and raspy.

I didn't know she was gone.  I recently bought an exercise gadget on SNBC, based on recs here, and they sent me an email asking me to review the product, and also to rate them.  I told them that I couldn't take most of their hosts... that Charla was the exception. LOL.  I don't know if that was before or after she left.  I liked her.

I liked Charla, as a person.  But she was the absolute WORST show host in the business. I always wondered how she kept her job.  Then I realized it was her personality, if you liked Charla, you could forgive her total ineptness.
