I just found out about this book, Sellevision, which is all about the behind-the-scenes drama at a fictitious home shopping channel--similar to ... oh, I dunno ... maybe QVC or HSN, perhaps??? It came out in 2000, and how I haven't heard about it until now is beyond me.
It starts off with a popular male host getting canned for accidentally exposing his bits and pieces during a robe segment. Ok, I'm hooked. There's all sorts of hairy earlobe drama, peddling of Princess Di memorabilia *cough*shopnbc*cough* and, of course, the Dazzling Diamonelle (Hah! Fake diamonds ... I love it!).
