@willomenia  I've gotten the impression that she was divorced because when Bill Greene was there, he invited her somewhere and she mentioned that she couldn't go because she had her son, Buzzy (?), that weekend.  I often wonder which one petitioned for the divorce. Connie has always struck me as being "cold".

 

@pattypeep: Connie Craig-Carroll cold??? I never got that impression.  You mentioned that maybe her divorce had something to do with Bill???  Huh??? Smiley Surprised  Well, we're all entitled to our opinion,  everybody looks at things in different way, I guess.

I can believe this.  When HSN was first starting out, this was probably part of their package every year and was used as an incentive in the early years.  In the later years, it's a great way to give them more money without giving them more money.

 

 


I can believe that about Bobbi. She's been there since the beginning, when they sold on radio and not tv and she said they used to deliver the products themselves.  

 

Colleen hasn't been there that long. 


@Lipstickdiva   Colleen will have her 25th anniversary with HSN this August.

@Caaareful Shopper, I've heard her mention that she will have an anniversary show in August but her actual anniversary was in mid-May.  She posted a photo of a bouqet of flowers she received from HSN for it.  

 

I know she has been there for 25 years but there were a lot of hosts at HSN prior to Colleen. I just meant she wasn't an original.  Woman Happy

@Lipstickdiva   I see, thanks!  I will definitely try to catch her anniversary show!

According to the Homeshoppingista website, the lay-off also includes Brett Chuckerman.

someone wrote they should come to QVC.  QVC owns HSN they are letting some of these veteran hosts go.  Brett Chuckerman is being let go as well, but he has only been there 8 years.  I am wondering if HSN will be gone altogether.  Usually when a merger happens it consolidates to one company  It doesn't make sense to have the some products and vendors on two channels.  Time will tell


I wish QVC would go and not HSN

Well if getting rid of high salaried hosts was the solution, I'm sure there were plenty to choose from, i.e.,Colleen, Bobbie Ray, Callie, Shannon, etc.  Not to mention Robin hadn't been there as long as Connie.  I suspect threre was more at play than just that. Unfortunately, we'll never know.

I totally agree with you.  That was exactly my thought when Robin Wall started.  I remember when Colleen introduced her as a new host and my thought precisely was she is the next Colleen, I always enjoyed her shows.  she has a very bubbly personality and I really like her.

It was so entertaining and funny when Connie and Bill

Greene were on air together.  they cracked me up!

 

I also enjoyed watching Bill Greene host some years back.  Always a pleasure to watch and I was sorry to hear when he got promoted.
