What is her husband gesturing when she goes to the stage?
Did anyone watch?
I frankly don't understand actors, even if no longer popular, making appearances on these programs. I would think she has an income given that "Who's The Boss?" is still in syndication (is it not?), still gets semi-regular work and her husband works extensively in voiceovers. It seems rather belittling to do these appearances.
Second, these networks must get an audience and sales or else they wouldn't exist. What's the target audience, and who buys the things they attempt to sell?
R17 Maybe she just likes to make jewlery.
Plenty of stars have hawked their stuff on home shopping networks over the years.
She is a fabulous person. Met her New Year's Eve weekend and she couldn't have more lovely. But could someone explain how they think her selling jewelery on HSN is anything but a good business move for her? She's an actress. Why do you put actors on pedestals, like they are above the normal every day experiences? She likes jewelry and by doing HSN, her wares are sen by millions in in an hour.
Women are wearing such gawdy bling these days, stuff that's supposed to look like an empress holding a state dinner. But it's Technibond* and pave crystals and cubic zirconia. It just has to be huge, and worn with your lace bodice, capri pants and six inch heels.
It's not for us. It's for the middle America women who loved her on Who's The Boss and One Life to Live. I didn't like the stuff, but my sister and mother did.
Why shouldn't she make some money?
I don't care if she sells shit in a box. That woman is a great and true friend of the gay community.
I agree, R22.
I just wish she wasn't always on the side of Gary's Old Towne Tavern.
In a related story, WHET Erika Slezak?
Other than her appearance on the daytime Emmys, she's been INVISIBLE since OLTL went off the air.
And her imdb listing has NO projects upcoming...
Maybe she's preparing a lingerie line to be sold on TV!
Hey if Susan Lucci and Judith Light can do it....
Slezak can always go back to shilling for prunes.
I recall reading somewhere that selling on these channels is quite lucrative.
Anyone remember Joel McHale guest spotting on QVC or HSN hawking a mop and making jokes about cleaning up blood with it and then offering free Stuff That really didn't come with the mop? Hilarious
Anyone see Nate Berkus' segment on HSN late Sunday/early Monday, selling his over-priced poofs and sheets? He looked dirty, seemed exhausted and had huge sweat stains under his arms. He even at one point said, "I feel like Mr. Greasy Man" but the chirpy hostess just chattered on.
Why is HSN "third rate" and QVC "first rate"? Which channel then is "second rate"?
I saw Suzanne Somers on ShopNBC? What rate is that? All I know is that it had the worse back-drops ever!
I miss Connie Stevens drunk ass hawking the "Time Machine". SS has her own version called the "FaceMaster". She has so much money for shilling shit.
Yes she is, r28, OH GOD, YES SHE IS! Please stop badgering me, r28. What else do you want to know? How -- how much more do you want? Haven't I said what everyone wants to hear? What you want everyone to hear? That I am a common hooker like Katrina Karr! That Marco Dane was my pimp! Is that what you want me to say? What do you want from me? You want blood? You want me to say that I'm lower than the lowest piece of scum? You want more filth? You want more slime? You want more names? I'll give you another name -- Talbot Huddleston! He was my first john! He was the first in a string of so many men, I don't even remember their names! Now? Now are you satisfied?
Even M couldn't have pulled this off.
I remember when she played the hooker with a heart of gold on, what was it? General Hospital? Amazing Actress. Amazing Person. I hope she sells a lot of her bling.
Her hair always looked fucked up - even when she was young. JL, Angie Dickinson, and the wife from the second Newhart show always looked like they didn't own a comb, or ever bothered to look at the back of their head in the mirror.
