katzwisdom: that is exactly what shop HQ did too, regarding hosts they let go, etc. i never watch shows anymore, i only purchase on line and on sale. Do you notice how she has a rather large family unit, but no one, including her sisters, seems to bother with her. Look at what is popular on Insta gram and the influencers who make millions. We are doing ok, although we miss my income. Her jewelry is over priced for what it is; though I have a couple Tanzanite pieces I save for special occasions. Antonella blamed her departure on the transition of QVC2 to re-aired and previously recorded programming. LIsa Robertson’s Mother died a number of years back from cancer..Lisa is doing well with her own channel and has some beautiful things,although, quite expensive. If you EVER say goodbye to David Venable I won’t shop from your channel ever again. Sandra Scott…Not sure..about Jackie..all the good ones…the sweet down to earth ones…leave or get let go. Losing your job sucks. Now, they all are terrible to watch, have inferior merchandise, high costs of products and shipping, and lousy customer service. They’ll all be missed. Good luck to all those who QVC so unkindly dismissed. Constructive criticism is fine. The way she flaps her hands during presentations makes me seasick. I think you and your coworkers made a safe and wise decision, but are you doing ok? Firing Antonella was NOT a smart decision. But the blond hair makes her look hard and older. I watched her at times just to remind me of the Italian neighborhoods and friends I had there….very real..very nice. It is horrible! Joyce….you can have free speech without being nasty and criticizing someone’s looks as Linda did…That’s just plain cruel and uncalled for.The blonde hair was not a reason for QVC to let her go…you couldn’t get any sweeter or nicer of a person than Antonella and the other hosts that were let go..QVC doen’t want the down to earth and natural hosts…they want the ones that act like actors..the fake ones..That’s how I see it.. QVC should have gave maryDE Angelo the pink slip and should have kept Stacy on she is so warm and kind hearted I am so upset would QVC right now don’t know if I’m going to keep shopping with them, I am upset to see these beautiful and talented women lose their jobs. I KNOW that better things are coming her way, as she not only has the skills, but the kindest, most positive nature of ANY of the Q’s so-called “Superstars”…, Antonella is genuine and sweet but that’s not what QVC wants…They want hosts that can really pour on the bullshit …they like fake and phony…not genuine people..Antonella is,I think…by nature…a natural..just sweet as can be..She will be better off..she may not think so but she will. Bottom line…NO ONE is jealous A CRAZY, USING BITCH WITH LOTS OF MONEY AND NO REAL LIFE!!! I have seen changes in QVC lately that concerned me and lead me to believe that they are on a downhill trend. My post is focused on all shopping channels, and yes, I’m sorry about Antonella, and everyone else…..on screen and off, who make home shopping what it is, and were fired. QVC will post five (5) Susan Graver 30th Anniversary Giveway posts, as follows: Get sneak previews of special offers & upcoming events delivered to your inbox. That would be you…know it all…talking shit about people and you don’t even know…LIke saying Lisa’s contract wasn’t renewed…how in hell would you ever know that? I have been a gardener, landscaper and nurseryman for over 25 years, and when I see their tv commercials, I just shake my head in disbelief. Measurements? How stupid to let seasoned QVC hosts go and not more recently hired hosts. The majority of shoppers are 50+ and more of their diehard customers are passing away daily. Â© 1995-2020 QVC, Inc.

Katie and Claudia, most certainly, have boyfriends and LIVES, as do her other 4 female and male employees, so NOW she’s forever with her “Chief of Stuff”, who has to photograph her for her glamour shots (phito-shpped, of course) near her tomato plants and film her nightly cooking sessions. On the other hand QVC may also be following the new trend in who will represent them..more minorities as this is happening in all segments of sales especially TV ads. I know that these people are working from home and instead of doing their job their homeschooling their children and cooking dinner and swimming in their pools or whatever they’re doing other than answering the phone to help QVC customers because they’re being paid by the hour. Employees and agents of QVC, tarter, their parents, affiliates and subsidiaries, and immediate family members and household members of employees and agents are not eligible. I think it had NOTHING to do to with looks. Of all the ones to let go, ugh. And abruptly or kindly put, everyone has a right to their opinions. . Create a free website or blog at WordPress.com. Antonella was a great host. Thats what makes you you! SHAME ON YOU!!! Why would you fire one of your MOST POPULAR hosts? I KEPT LOOKING FOR HER, AND FIGURED SOMETHING WENT WRONG. To me she was a a great host. I HAVE WATCHED QVC FOR 30 YEARS, AND HAVE SEEN HOST COME AND GO. I feel for the people they fired. I wish them the best of luck in future endeavors. I doubt you will let him go because you would lose a lot of viewers. That would be you…with no life..Not Lisa…She has a life and has many followers who love her.. That’s the point…Facebook “followers”…lots of people have those…FRIENDS are a different story…that’s why she’s tethered to her estate with her PAID employees and her FACEBOOK FOLLOWERS to keep her from losing her mind…, I might know a little more about her than you might think I know…believe me, there is NOTHING to be jealous of…her daily, monthly, yearly redundant Facebook postings tell the whole story…maybe you would like to try tracking down some of her old “friends” and “acquaintences” to get the REAL LOWDOWN on the one you so admire…and I don’t know what in the world the previous poster meant by “she’s still with her”? They seem to be ok with it. Having a pink slip hanging over your head while you work doesn’t help, either. Hope you can help me lost directions theFrench croissants wanted to make them for Christmas I’m not sure if they have to race before you bake them if you can let me know please do. Miss the hosts that are gone! That would be about right for 16 years, 4 months ago. What an a$$ you are.. lol,, You are so pathetic. Sorry to see that some of the better host were let go. The job also fit her talkative nature, considering QVC hosts have to constantly chatter to keep sales interesting. Whether youâre sending a gift across the street or across the country, during checkout you can request to have your holiday gifts packaged and delivered straight to â¦ Shawn Killinger, Sandra Bennett, Alberti our so loud, horrible fake laughs, talk over everyone, very rude, love attention. I am so happy you are one who reads these blogs and better yet, answers, good or bad… You are you,,,,, nose , knuckles, sexy blonde hair and everything else. If you would’ve notice the truth she smiles not only with her mouth but with her eyes. The list of hosts that were let go includes Antonella Nester, Gabrielle Kerr, Stacey Stauffer and Kristine Zell. I am glad she is rid of them. She’s been there since day one practically. Covid spread like wildfire here. She was bright and alert, and endearingly real. I’ve had to stay on hold for a customer service rep sometimes for up to an hour or more. Do not like any new hosts I only watch when either of the Janes are in or Rick Domeier why did you also get ri of Stacy Staffer what did she do wrong. Cheryl Garfield I agree but there will always be people that buy from the shopping channels…let’s face it…not only is it an addiction but also,there are people where money is no object..I keep saying I won’t buy and then find myself buying…QVC is not our friend and is staying rich because of buyers like me. I get that, but there is negative right along with the positive. I know that must have made a big impact on you financially. All fresh from Lancaster, PA farms. Antonella was a breath of fresh air on that “stale” network, and I’m hoping that she, along with Gabrielle (who always was a fine host who, in my opinion, was given poor treatment), will find their paths to much bigger and better horizons! Good luck to her and the others. I will miss you sweet lady. Wow, time flies!! I do believe that it was station “stylists” who required her to go blonde and she did it in order to keep her job, but it actually looked dreadful on her and took away from her natural beauty. She answered all their questions, except about her ex boyfriend. I’ll know QVC is interested in quality when they get rid of that Laurie person with the 20000%markup items she hawks on there. You were ‘real’. Hoping to stay. It was not appealing. I will miss those hosts that were pink slipped. Every time I turn on Shawn Killinger is bragging that she wears a size cc’d and yet she is stuffed into an outfit like a sausage and consistently has camel toe. And, when the remaining audience stops watching, that will probably end home shopping as we know it, because if the younger people aren’t buying now, they will not buy in the future. Shawn remains annoying and Alberti stop with the preppy sweater and scarf thing. If conditions don’t allow us to open by fall 2021, I’m taking retirement at the beginning of 2022. Like “old”Antonella better than “newer” Antonella, but I still do like her. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if she had visions of the upcoming changes, and (smartly) decided to go while the going was good. We’ll never see those days again. I guess in a way she got just what Antonella got, but with much less kindness, Antonella was not one of the “superstars” like Jane or Shawn. Get hit by a ð of crisp, clear sound with today's best deal, the Bose® Wave Music System IV!

She’ll bounce back – she can start a business selling her sewing machines she rehabs or start a FB following like Jill Bauer. no so…. she doesnt have a mean bone in her body.

I knew that Linda, you have class.. That one just got my goat,,. hey linda, the nasty one, has anyone ever told you what a bitch you are? I watched HSN a lot more, but I tuned into QVC pretty often. She has used many people for many reasons over the years, from her QVC pals in LA and NY when she needed a place to “flop” (she even bragged on her FB page that it was cheaper than staying at a hotel), to essentially “using” Patty Reilly and Albany Irvin for “invites” to their Thanksgiving dinners for years when she had to work at the Q on the holiday. I am really sorry to see all this happen. But. Sorry to hear about these hosts being laid off. I looked it up, because we moved to SoCal early spring 2004, and about a month after we got there, I noticed her. QVC is definitely not the “Q” I use to love from day one that I watched. ..just a PAID employee whose life is as sad ad empty as hers, to do her bidding and keep her company. Let’s all respect each other and agree to disagree. Best of luck to everyone at the Q. I don’t know why she was let go, all I do know, it was a mean spirited way of doing so.

Good luck Antonella..you will reinvent yourself and hopefully the severence pkgs were very generous…but with HSN and QVC now People keep talking about Antonella fired because if looks , hair etc…. Saw that Shop HQ was selling Lock and Lock the other night. And good grief…..HOW can 16 years fly by like that?!?! As for Carolyn, I hope they don’t fire her. To me, she was a breath of fresh air in contrast to the Q’s mostly stuffy hosts, who seemed to be on Xanax or something. Gabrielle and Stacey were always professional, well-informed, provided excellent descriptions of products and allowed the vendors to talk. All so I hope she stays. They’re two beautiful people-inside and out. Like you, I remember them or her saying she had just started. Sara, blow it out your self righteous ass! With all the crazy changes it makes me wonder if this is why Sharon Fatche abruptly left. I agree %10000. QVC's Gift Guide Scavenger Hunt Instagram Giveaway. But, it’s her choice. Not good pr!! Ant NEVER fit into their culture, no matter how hard she tried to be one of their “team players”. And, David’s sidekick, “Lisping Mary”, can’t sell her way “out of a paper bag”. STFU..You are the big know t all with all the answers…not!Lisa never said anything about leaving because her contract wasn’t renewed.She has always said she wanted a change.You have no idea about any of it…so stop acting like you do. The other hostess I can’t stand is Kirsten. They warn that the Nation's meat supply is in peril. This has been unpleasantly surreal, and I want it to GO AWAY. Lisa’s contract was not renewed. Change ), You are commenting using your Twitter account. She can’t come close in comparison with Stacie. We are losing the right to free speech in the USA little by little….and some is because of computer crusaders who want to see only good, positive posts. I agree with you. its all true and you put it into perfect words for us. Antanella Nester was a great host. Now just stop with your freaking snarky attitude with me,,, You don’t know half of what you say and it seems you have alot,,,How do you know I am not a friend of someone who indeed works there? She was so real and so relatable. Fighting about shopping channel hosts you don’t know personally, and never will, seems so trivial. Gina as her personality and presentations just make me sick to my stomach, particularly when she is yakking it up with Isaac, who she acts like she is just as well known as he, when in fact, he is a long-time, well known, famous designer and deserves more respect that that – I do believe online shopping is here to stay, but the current channels are hurting themselves when they turn away from and replace procedures and methods they have used for 35 years that have made them the financial successes they have been in past years, but now may be cutting off their own nose to spite their faces…. She can rest now, no more jumping through hoops and kissing ass. I feel she brought a lot of life to the shopping channel. You are all top notch hosts, and QVC will miss you, as will your audience. I DID PREFER HER WITH THE NATURAL COLOR OF HER HAIR. They were 2 of my favorite hosts. Long after Lisa was let go, she went on the tv circut, when asked why she left and she told the same story. Change ), You are commenting using your Facebook account. Yeah, I thought she started sometime early-ish in 2004, too.

But, with the current management (Mike George), and all the negative changes, they are better off out of there. Hope you are doing well and are happy! I’m certain I will be “crucified” by some by expressing my observations and opinions, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist or a degreed candidate in the field of psychiatry to see what is evident to more than a few, who are not IN LOVE with her….by the way, the prices for almost ALL of the items on her site are so outrageously overpriced, I’m surprised she still has a business…I suppose her “faithful” are her “faithful” customers…, Just like most employers these days they want your loyalty but have none for their employees. She’s great at decorating and you can get some useful ideas. I agree qvc has gone dowm hill its rare anymore that I shop there. I thought something was going on with Antonella lately. That sounds far away, but believe me, it is not.

She appears to be moving on with smiles once again, can’t we just be happy for her……………………….. Anyway, I guess I shouldn’;t have said she had her own channel…I meant on FB and that she has her own web site…I don’t think QVc got rid of Lisa…I think she just went off on her own…probably figured she would make more money that way.. Don’t guess I will be shopping at Qvc due to them getting rid of good hosts! Antonella, sorry to see you leave under these conditions. Sorry I’m so rude… I really liked Gabrielle…thought she was an exceptionally good host!!! Now things I have ordered are being delayed. We need another lockdown to get rid of this.

Seniority obviously means nothing. But they let the wrong hosts go, the ones that are professional, calm, and know their products. I thought for sure she would have changed it back by now. Lives and health come first. WEST CHESTER, Pa. (PRWEB) January 21, 2019 Cottage Farms announced today the addition of two new hosts for its long-running QVC appearances.
