Re: SUZANNE SOMERS COMING TO QVC

I like her and her energy. 

I've purchased some face products and they delivered.  Also, she had the first pen whitening product for teeth - worked too. 

I did buy a nice dress from her line and it's still good to wear - attractive as well. 

 

For a gal her age, she looks good (prcedures and all).  How many can say they made the sacrifices and walked the walk.  Kudos to her.

Re: SUZANNE SOMERS COMING TO QVC

Her and Colleen Lopez were great together, very entertaining shows when she was on with her jewelry.   I have a couple of pieces, they're okay.......not the best quality.  Makes me wonder how her other lines will be.   I am a true believer in Andrew Lessman also.

The only vitamins me or my family takes are from his line.

Unless those day come back I probably wont watch.

Vitamins aren't fun. Smiley Frustrated

 


@Pqfan....yes, I remember all the various shows and products she had on HSN.  I think that is why she lasted so long there, but I just can't imagine her doing that well with only selling vitamins and other healthy products? 


@shell gardenI loved those old HSN shows.

They were fun. 

I like the clothes too but I never bought any of them. Smiley Happy

 


@Pqfan....yes, and she was a hoot with Colleen, lol.

I also buy and use Andrew Lessman's vitamins,I have for years. I will not buy any of Susan's vitamins. Why does she hop from one channel to the other,maybe her products don't sell as fast as she would like.


@Rosebud 06...yes, I'm sticking with Andrew also.  But I wonder the same thing with all the hopping.  But, alot of vendors seem to be doing that lately.

@mtc...honestly, I was surprised too.  I didn't know she first came to QVC.  I only first started watching Suzanne when she was on HSN and was really, really surprised when she left there and went to Evine.  There were lots of rumors about her leaving HSN in not a good way.

[ Edited ]

SS is funny to watch. When she was only paired with queen host Colleen (HSN), it was LOL. Then they had a falling out. She also generally had one host all the time with her on Evine-(terrible host Kimberly Wells). I haven't watched in awhile, so...

Most of their hosts are bad on Evine, except talented and beautiful Heather HallI wish she would come the Q!!!!

I don't listen to SS health info. I like when she sold food, clothes and jewelry on HSN. Vitamins and skin care are boring to watch, imo. SS crazy dh would just pop in on air.lol. The cooking segments and blending the vitamin drinks were entertaining, and an unprepared mess. SS items are overpriced, but someone is buying them. Good luck SS on coming to  QVC! Oh plastic surgery, or not SS looks good for age 70.

Re: SUZANNE SOMERS COMING TO QVC

@shell garden  Add me to the small list that like Suzanne.  I don't purchase her vitamins - much too pricey when you can get good quality elsewhere.  I do like to listen to her when she talks about them though and her beauty products.  She isn't the dumb Chrissy that she played on TV years ago.  I have read all her books and learned alot from them.  Her books are based on interviews with many, many alternative doctors.  They are extremely interesting.  I have learned a lot about hormones, thyroid issues, bladder infections, and cancer from her books.  These opinions are from conventional doctors that have chosen to take a different approach to medicine .  They weren't seeing the results with mainstream medicine or they were seeing too many side effects from the Big Pharma meds.  Suzanne does share her experiences.  She doesn't claim to be a medical person, but she has put in the hours of interviewing and reporting what she has taken away from them in her books. 

 

Hey, she is in great shape, has survived cancer, has a husband she loves (and he loves her), children and grand children, a successful business, and is doing what she loves.  Most likely, QVC made her a better offer or maybe promised her more air time.  She wasn't on Evine that often.  She is a shrewd business woman so I am sure the move involved economics......why else are you in business?

@shell garden I'm not sure if she was on QVC first ( @hennypenny was wondering the same thing) but I do remember my first purchase from her.  It was a set of three allegedly SS rings with faux pearls which was very cute but tarnished the second they came out of the bag . . . I thought we would never stop laughing as it was back in the day when you could still expect consistently good quality from shopping channels . . . oy.

 

I do find her endlessly entertaining when she is on the air but she is a handful and I agree I don't think she left under pleasant circumstances from HSN.  I never followed her skincare but did enjoy her cooking and food shows.

Re: SUZANNE SOMERS COMING TO QVC

REMEMBER:

 

She has pushed very dangerous ideas about cancer and lied about support from an MD a couple of years ago.

 

I can't believe QVC is foolish enough to have her here.
