@ScarletDove  I'm curious about how they were both former celebrities.  I know Julia was a mixologist(?), but I'm not sure what Alberti did prior to QVC.


 

 

 

@NickNack 

 

 

julia cearley has done some acting and stage work, plus she had been with ESPN for a while before she came to QVC.

Alberti ingraciates himself with people to get ahead.   He is a master manipulator.   He never met anyone he could not use as a friend.   When I was younger we had a name for that, besides phony.

They both have acting credits and Alberti definitely was an Albanian pop singer, but calling them "celebrities" is really stretching it.

At least half of the hosts on QVC have acting or news show credits.  I count 13 hosts that I've seen or heard mention their past work on their resume.  It's one of the background factors QVC likes to see when considering host employment.  It means that person should already be used to being on air and selling a certain image of themselves.

 

Celebrity? No. Good for sales, yes.

@ScarletDove 

 

I laughed when I read the celebrity comment. I have never heard of either one of them before they started hosting on the Q. 


@icezeus @NickNack    "Julia Cearley is known for her work on Once Fallen (2010), Cry Wolfe (2014) and What Remains (2013)...."

"Alberti is also a pop star. His most popular single was Write to my email. The single won the best male video award at the 2006 Video Fest Awards in Prishtina, Kosova. 

On one stint in Albania as a teenager, he was offered modeling work. The success of that work led to Alberti starting a career as a singer/pop star...."

After returning permanently to the US in 2007, he began pursuing an acting career. He has appeared in the following movies:Them (2007), Rush Hour 3 (2007), Still Lives (2007), Gratitude (2011), Susanna (2013). Popaj also appeared in Sonic Burger commercials from 2008 to 2010..." "... Popaj has homes in both Los Angeles and Palm Springs as well as Westchester, PA...."

All this info available online in bios....

Alberti's popstar and modeling has been talked about on air, and someone mentioned Julia being a former actress but she talks about being a mixologist.

Thank you for answering. I had no idea. The only thing that I knew about Julia was that she was a Mixologist, and I believe I had heard that Alberti was a brand ambassador before he became a QVC host. 

 

I hear more about Rick D, being on a soap opera and a few "B" movies. LOL

Yes I knew Alberti was a singer. He is one of my favorite hosts. Always happy and explains things well. My opinion.
