A former television shopping host was arrested in Tallahassee on felony warrants out of Colorado.

Christine Scanlon, 59, was arrested as a fugitive from Routt County, Colorado, where she was wanted for felony theft, forgery and tax evasion.

Scanlon was a host on the Home Shopping Network for more than 20 years.

She is being held in the Leon County Detention Facility on $1,000 bond after being arrested at her apartment in Tallahassee.

 

I hardly recognized her - she looks so much older (at least 20 years) from when she was on TV.  Holly cow, was this a shocker.

That's sad. I remember her and thought she was still a host-though I haven't watched in a long time. The left is how I remember her.

WOW!!

 

I'm not sure which is more of a shock ..... that she was arrested or how she's aged.

 

I never would've recognized her in a million years.

That is sad that she went so far down hill after being such a great host on HSN for 20 years.   Things happen... life happens.... I hope she can get her life together again.

Re: Christine Scanlon from HSN Arrested!!!!

I am not familiar with this HSN host, but I hope she can rebound from her fall from grace.  This sort of thing is heartbreaking to read about, and you can only hope and pray/send positive thoughts that she can emerge, somehow, from all this.

 

We do not know what her downfall was.  Yes, greed is there, but why such a need?

I feel the same way, SeaMaiden.

 

Life.  It can be a beach sometimes.

Re: Christine Scanlon from HSN Arrested!!!!

Wow.  I'll have to Google to see if I can find some details.  She  looks 20 years older than 59 but I suppose we'd all look old and beat up in mug shots.
