Jeff Hewson MIA



I have gotten sooo many emails asking me where-oh-where Jeff "Thanks for the Jeffrey!" Hewson is these days. Honestly, I don't have a clue. Sorry. Rest assured that Queen Bea is trying though.

In case you don't already know or just need to refresh your memory, Jeff was a QVC host known for selling jewelry in tuxes, singing karaoke, and thanking callers who referred to him as "Jeffrey" instead of the more pedestrian "Jeff." He married another QVC host, Judy Crowell amongst great fanfare--and yes, that's the same Judy that went to HSN and eventually married Paul Deasy.

The QVC fairytale marriage between Jeff and Judy ended practically before the honeymoon began. What happened? No one really knows, but it wasn't an amicable split.

This wonderfully written article, LOVE! DRAMA! SHOPPING! ALL ABOUT QVC!, perfectly captures what it was like to be an avid QVC viewer back when all this drama was unfolding.

According to Kathy Levine's biography, "It's Better to Laugh...," Jeffrey asked for a divorce right before Judy was about to go on the air. Stunned and scared, Judy called Kathy for advice. Angered tremendously that Jeffrey would do this to Judy Kathy told her this: Cry later. This bites but you are a professional. Go out there, smile, and sell whatever you have to sell. Do the best you can. It will all be okay.

Jeff, on the other hand, left QVC and supposedly sued for breech of contract. He then sold his story to the Enquirer--classy move, doncha think?

Allegedly this is the old Enquirer article:

Jeff Hewson, the baby-faced star of QVC, has quit the TV shopping network --because he says his jealous ex-wife made his life a living hell. In a bombshell that rocked the network, Hewson and QVC host Judy Crowell split up three months after they wed in April 1992 -- but they both kept their jobs hosting separate QVC segments.The 38 year old heartthrob claims that immediately after the split Judy began spreading vicious rumors that he was gay and had a serious drinking problem. A furious Hewson resigned from the network on Friday, November 5, saying he was sick of his ex-wife's antics and QVC's refusal to do anything about it.

Astonishingly, Hewson, who says he was QVC's top seller, moving as much as $2.4million worth of gold jewelry in one night, admits their troubles started as far back as their honeymoon. "We were on a yacht in the Mediterranean. Judy started making scenes. She seemed to delight in humiliating me in public," he said. "When we got back home, Judy said, it's not working. I said, let's get some therapy. We haven't given it a chance. But she didn't want to give it a chance. She never even moved into my home. I feel she married me just to get ahead. Judy's love for me was all an act. She went after me because I was a star. She got me to fall in love with her and marry her, thinking the publicity would make her a celebrity. She's a Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde and Mr. Hyde came out after we married." Hewsen said he threatened to slap QVC bigwigs with a lawsuit if they didn't stop Judy's harassment. But they did nothing. QVC made matters worse when they offered him a ridiculous new 5 year contract. "I would have earned less than I did two years ago. When I looked at that, and thought of my ex-wife's viciousness, I decided I'd had enough," he said.

When contacted by the ENQUIRER, Judy Crowell had no comment. Hewson now hopes to land a job hosting a TV game show and he's thrilled to finally be rid of his ex-wife. "The biggest favor Judy ever did for me was to walk out of my life," he said.

"She's put me through a horrendous year, but it's time to move on. My fans will definitely see me again -- a lot happier and with an even more beautiful woman."

  3. Here's an example of what a good salesman JH was: Years and years ago, he was doing one of his 18 kt gold shows, complete with tux and fancily dressed models, and he told his audience he had a wonderful new pair of earrings coming up, that we shouldn't wait, we should just jump on the phone and order immediately because we would all love 'em and they would surely sell out. He kept saying this, and sure enough, I ordered these earrings sight unseen, I loved them and still wear them several times a week! P.S. They DID sell out and the Q never got them back again.

    1. Judy has always seemed like one of the nicest, most genuine people I've seen and I think he totally blindsided her with the way he treated her - according to Kathy Levine, who knew the situation.

  5. Kim Parrish was on QVC one night and Jeffery called in from Indiana. You could tell it was Jeff Hewson. It was a 3 am show. Jeff was very quiet on the phone he was buying some jewelry. He said he was doing some Christmas shopping. Kim reconziged who it was.

  6. I always loved "Jeffrey." I was stunned when he and Judy got married! I didn't like her at all and to be honest, I pretty much gave up on the Q after he left.

    Remember Molly Daly? She was my fave from WAY back. I wonder what she's up to!

  8. Jeff was one of the first hosts of QVC and no doubt helped make it what it is. It's too bad QVC treated him that way. He came across as very sweet and charming. I first came across QVC when I moved back to the states in the early 90s as a teenager. I thought this shopping channel concept was the coolest thing ever. I remember watching it surrounded by boxes as we unpacked, and would watch it whenever there was nothing on (which was often). I think he was the one who was showing the viewers the back of a wedding ring quilt his mother or grandmother made for his future marriage (???), long before he married Judy. It was cute, he didn't want to unfold it b/c he didn't want to peek until he got married. I never was a fan of Judy's. She seemed fake. However, that line in the NE about how he'd find an "even more beautiful woman" was pretty juvenile, especially for a man his age.

  9. Having worked at the QVC call center in West Chester, PA during the reign of Jeff & Judy, I can honestly say their marriage was a bid chock. Not because of their different personalities but because we all thought Jeff was gay. Many of us believed at the time that this marriage was cooked up by the QVC heavies. It was a publicity stunt.
    I can witness that Jeff had a huge ego and always thought himself better than anyone else in that studio. Judy on the other had was made out to be this bitch and was totally opposite. She would talk to those working in the trenches. I remember a time after I had left QVC and she was in a local card shop. I had stopped to talk to her and she was as nice as always.

    1. I always thought Jeff was gay too, Anonymous. My gaydar is pretty strong (as one of my gay friends told me), but maybe he isn't. I don't know him, but I heard that when they were on their honeymoon, she caught him in bed with a man. Don't know if that's true, but, Judy always struck me as very nice.

  11. One of the writers above was mistaken, Jeffrey was not one of the first QVC hosts, he came a few years later. Jane Rudolph(Treacy), Bob Bowersox and Kathy Levine were the first hosts followed by Ellen Campbell, Paul Kelly and Steve Colontuno.

  13. I have a gay brother who used to date a kid named Jeff Hewson at Purdue back in the 1980's. I always thought it was the same guy, but was never sure. I'll have to ask my brother about him.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Jeff Hewson wasn't at Purdue in the 80's. He was there for certain in 1973-76. I'm from his hometown and we both lived in Shreve Hall and spent much time together. I dont know if he is gay or not. He was definitely not openly gay at the time :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Judy Crowell chased Jeff Hewson from the time she met him. He finally gave up and married her. Big mistake. She treated him like a dog. Then she moved on to married host Paul Deasy. Destroyed his marriage then married him. I hear she wears the pants in that family.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I always wondered what had happened to Judy and Jeff. She seemed very happy about the engagement (I even purchased a copy of her wedding ring when she married Jeff. It is still one of the best designs that QVC has done in diamonique.) I was never a fan of Judy, but Jeff alway seemed like a nice guy.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Jeff is gay, gay, gay! IMHO LOL. He married Judy, who is quite homely, bless her heart, as a beard to cover up the fact because the old biddies that loved him so much on QVC would never go for him being gay.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I knew Jeff when he lived in Cincinnati. In fact I dated him for awhile. I don't know if he is gay or not. He came from a very nice family. What went on between he and Judy is really between them, but Jeff certainly captured the imagination of a lot of people or you wouldn't still be talking about him.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I always thought Jeff Hewson was more in love with himself than anyone else, so that would make him, what...an autosexual? He sure liked to carry on about his convertable and his boat to the point that you'd have thought he owned a fully staffed yacht, for crying out loud! And remember when QVC sold cassette tapes of him singing and the old ladies calling in and swooning over him?

    ReplyDelete
  23. "Thanks for the Jeffrey" was beyond annoying!
    I have never seen anyone else so in love with himself! No wonder there was no room for Judy!
    Good riddance!

  24. I was a good friend of Jeff 15 years ago...funny how time flies!! Judy was gay and is gay. Her big choppers are so gross...Thank God she is off the air. I went out to dinner with jeff along time ago... and he was so sad that he had married a lesbian.

  25. I did a little researxh on "FOnd a Person" and some other sites based on the information that I found on the web. It appears Jeff has returned to Indiana, from whence he came. No further information.

  31. Goodgawd, Judy Crowell has the biggest mouth of horse teeth I've ever seen. But I still can't figure out why she and Jeff kept their marriage a secret until after the wedding. And then one day she showed up without her wedding rings. He was a cutie....and then there's Paul Deasy. What the h. happened there? Judy Crowell? Paul Deasy? Who's next, Skip Connelly?

  32. No matter what anyone has to say about Jeffery, he was fun to watch and listen to.
    Like Kathy he made QVC fun to watch and along the way I bought a ton of stuff. Now its so phony and boring. I hardly ever see it anymore. Jeffery, wherever you are there are many of us that miss you and wish you a world of good luck.

  34. Did a little internet research and it appears that Jeff may have returned to his home town or nearby in Indiana. Indeed, using some free sites for locating people, a Jeffery Hewson formerly of West Chester PA now comes up residing in inner Indiana. Nothing else about his career path, however.

  35. It's interesting that no one knows where he is

  36. Story was.. that he made a sexual advances to a model on the Q. She pressed charges and left the Q immediately and moved to FLorida. Judy said BYE BYE JEFF!!

  38. I would've SWORN that boy was gay and HE married HER so he'd have a "beard". I tend to never believe the person who protests the loudest. And in this case, the whiner is him 100%. The class act has kept their marital issues to herself.

  42. That is really good to hear. I heard that he and his wife divorced, shame but I'm glad he's doing what it is he loves.

    Oh, and I doubt that Jeff is making any of these comments, I'm sure that just as I feel in wondering lots of others do too.

  43. I have known Jeffery for over a year now. He is no where near Indianna! He is happy, living a truly Christian life and is a wonderful friend. He has gone through some difficult times; weathered the storms and learned how to dance in the rain. May God bless him!

  44. I loved watching Jeff Hewson. He and Kathy made such a great couple (or appeared to), I thought they should have married. Like most, I was completely shocked when he married Judy but even more shocked when watching one night and noticed he wasn't wearing a wedding band. I always thought he said "thanks for the Jeffrey" because of the pronounciation. People would say Jeff-ery, which was incorrect instead of Jeff-rey.

  48. Jeffery Hewson is a personal friend of mine. After he left QVC, he went into hiding because he has a serious issue with drinking. He has been unemployed since and has attended AA meetings 2 times a week. We celebrated his 2 year anniversary of being sober about 2 months ago. I have photos....of Jeffery and us at his party. Tonight, unfortunately, Jeffery had a serious stroke On Saturday evening October 22. The doctors do not believe he is going to live. He is hemorraging terribly from his brain. He is in a hospital here in Mesa, Arizona where he has resided for several years now. You can email me at gates40@yahoo.com for questions. He hasn't seen or spoken to his family since leaving QVC due to being embarressed.

  49. Regarding the October 24, 2010 post from Anonymous about Jeffery Hewson--
    I grew up next door to him in rural Indiana and we rode the school bus together for years. My brother and sister and I had great fun with Jeff and his brother and sister. Now that we're all grown and moved away our moms have fun together, they go to movies, eat out, etc. All of us are very sad to learn of his condition and now that his family does know of his whereabouts they are working hard to make arrangements to go to him. Some wonderful angel of a human being contacted his mother and she now can find some peace.

    Everyone has worried and been concerned about him for years. We are so sorry he did not realize that he should not feel embarrassed about his trials and tribulations with QVC and other challenges. Jeffery was very talented and a kind person to my family. We will always think of him fondly. Those of you who have a need to denigrate others to feel better about yourself, then go ahead. All of us have weaknesses and we do the best we can at the time we have available to us.

  50. I believe the above post is from my sister. I too grew up with Jeff. He lived down the road from us. Jeff and I used to fly kites together. (Funny aside; he taught me how to put an army man with a parachute on the kite string and it would work it's way up the string until it finally would fall off and parachute to the ground.)

    His mom and mine are best friends his dad died in my dad's arms when he had a massive heart attack as they waited for the ambulance to get there. The last time I saw Jeff several years ago, he seemed so happy.

    Jeff is one of the naturally funniest people I've ever met. We are all very sad to hear the news about Jeff. We always wondered and were concerned what happened to him. While it's nice to hear his last couple years he was sober and he is doing well, it's dis
    heartening to hear of his stroke and his poor chances of survival.

    I believe Jeff thrived on having fun and making those around him enjoy life. It is said to read many of the post of people that truly didn't know or understand him.

    I'm glad that Jeff had good friends out there that let his mom know. She has worried about him for years.

  51. I, too grew up with Jeff. He was my neighbor and one of my very best friends. He drove me to school every day for two years. We were in drama club, band and many other activities together in High School. We lived in the country, so many childhood years were spent playing imaginary games. We would dress up and be silly. One of my favorite memories as children is making up a slip and slide out of plastic. We played all day and when Jeff's dad got home and realized that we had ruined the grass, we were all in big trouble. We laughed about it for years.
    My mom is very dear friends with Jeff's mom. All these years have passed and we all longed to hear something from Jeff. I knew he was out there, we are all so sad that he never
    came back home. My heart is broken that he didn't know how many people loved and cared about him. Thank you to the angel that contacted his mother to let her know where he is. I am praying they get there in time.
    For all of those who pray, please keep Jeff and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

  52. Jeffery's condition seems to have improved slightly. He is able to communicate and understands what is being said to him. He was standing with help yesterday. He is partly parallyzed on the right side and only able to open his right eye. He was eating solid food too.

    They are looking to move him to a rehab facility and he has a long road to recovery ahead.

    His family traveled from IN to AZ and have been with him the past few days. I think they are staying with one of Jeffery's friends. Hopefully some healing with the family will come out of this tragedy.

  56. Former QVC host Jeffery Hewson suffered a sever stroke on Sat, 10/23/2010. He has spent the last several weeks in a hospital in Mesa, AZ. At first, it was thought that he would not survive because of all the bleeding in the brain; however, he has defied the odds and made great strides. He is partially paralyzed on the right. He is slowly gaining strength and mobility back in his right side and was moved to a long-term care facility this past week.

  57. I worked with Jeff's sister Linda. I was not watching QVC at the time and never knew of him until years later when I began to watch. My husband coached and taught at Eastern Hancock which I believe is where Jeff attended school We were not there at that time. The Hewson name is well known in those parts and the people are very nice. I hope Jeff continues to show improvement with his health issues. He should know he has many friends around the world who are thinking of him and hoping for his recovery.

  58. I too am very sorry to hear that Jeffrey suffered a stroke recently. I loved watching him on QVC every time he was on. He was the highlight of my day. I am so sorry that he has had such a hard time since those good ole days when so many of us enjoyed him soooo much.

  59. I loved watching Jeff on QVC. I won a $1500. 14 Karat Gold, 15 carat(all 1 carat stones)multigemstone bracelet when I played the spinning wheel game of unscramble the word when Jeff was hosting. The clue was "A Virtue" and the letters were all scrambled, but I guessed it and the word was Charity. Jeff yelled out, "You've WON !! I could not believe it. I wish I had a picture of that bracelet now, I lost it at a singles dance about 10 months later. I was sick to my stomach. I'll always remember Jeff on QVC. He was GREAT. That JUDY (Donkey Teeth) did not deserve a good guy like Jeff. He was so good looking and I could not understand why he would marry HER! Drinker or not, he was better than her. Good Luck to Jeff Hewson. I still have his CD which was sent out with my Karaoke Machine back in the day.It's easier to select ANonymous than try to put my name, which is Sandy

  60. Jeff Hewson - Come out, come out, wherever you are! I would love to know what's going on in his life. I thought he was talented, smart, adorable and should have been doing something other than selling crap at QVC. He was definitely immature but hopefully he's grown up in the years since he left QVC. The flirting that went on between Kathy Levine and Jeff always made my skin crawl because she looked old enough to be his mother. I guess they really weren't all that far apart in age but Kathy looked older than she really was, and Jeff looked younger than he really was. I hope he's well and happy, wherever he is. I don't believe anything that all these so-called friends of Jeff write in the comments.

    I am amazed where QVC comes up with their latest hosts. Shawn is either a coke queen or has mental problems and now we how an even worse psycho in Nancy Hornbeck. She can't even complete a sentence with forgeting what she wanted to say. I have to turn either of them off even if the merchandise is something I like. Is QVC that hard up? Or do they need a new talent scout?

  65. Bob Bowersox and Judy Crowell are both doing infomercials, he for some cooking item and she for the Ah-Bra for someone who is also on HSN. Is this a step "up" for them? Seems as though it's the end of the line. I thought Judy cut ties with HSN and went over to Shop NBC. So many changes on all shopping channels, neither of which are what they used to be. Guess the bottom line is money to all companies. They got rid of many hosts we all liked and showed considerable decline in many products. Quality has truly been replaced by substandard goods. The replacements for items I once purchased from QVC and HSN have not been duplicated by any means especially now that it's all coming from China. Diamonique was fabulous when QVC first bought the company but now receives many negative comments. Too bad QVC refused to acknowledge the Tova line and make at least an attempt at satisfying the customer with the fragrance that we all loved and still want to purchase. They have long since forgotten that it was us, the customer, who made them yet they're willing to lose us. Go figure.

  70. I really hate to hear of Jeff's health problems. I watched Q when he, Judy, Paul, Kathy, Bob and so many others were on there, but time changes things there as everywhere in life. I have loved watching each of those . BUT I have to agree with some on the people on there now. I have to turn it off when Shawn comes on and will not order anything she has on air.There is a couple of others that sort of gets on my last nerve but Shawn is the worst they have hired. Just do not order when she is online and maybe they will find someone else that is not so stuck on them self. She really thinks she is cute but isn't that the way it is the one who is not cute thinks they are pretty and cute.

  71. I have read all these posts and so far I have learned that Jeffery was missing, gay, a drunk, a sexual predator, full of himself, and is now paralyized from a stroke in a hospital. And that everyone here, grew up with him, lived next door to him, knew his sister, dad/mom, went to school with him and recently had dinner with him. Some of you even had sex with him. Ya'll are making me tired, he's probably laughing his ass off, reading all these stories about himself.

He kept a lot of people happy by just watching him on QVC..I was never a fan of Judy Crowell but remember we all are Gods creatures. WOULD REALLY LIKE TO HEAR FROM JEFFERY HEWSON... Give him all the best and I pray he gets well...

  73. It is true that QVC hosts are not what they used to be. I watch only certain ones and change channel when, ie Shawn and other come on

  74. It is true, I can't stand most of them. I have watched QVC since 1988 and really liked Jeff. Best host they ever had. Judy Crowell is such a phony. She destroyed Jeff and then destroyed Paul's marriage. Paul used to talk about Susan, his wife, on air until one day he stopped and Judy took over. I feel so sad for Jeff.

    Not only have the hosts changed at QVC but the products. To name just a few, Tova, Nick Chavez (hairspray), Bethlehem lights, Northern Nights etc. I used to love the Mrs. Prindable apples til they changed to the sour green apples and way less carmel. Oh and Ryka shoes!! What did they do with the sizing? I have send 3 pairs back because they made the toe box smaller.

  75. I do hope Jeffery recuperates from his divastating illness. He should be selling again--had a real talent for it. We used to watch for hours and bought thousands of dollars of gold from QVC. Jeff was a cute as a bug in a rug. And he knew it. A speedy recovery, Jeff.

  76. I always watched him on QVC he was so funny especially when he was doing kids toys. I am so sorry to hear of his illness, hope he is getting better every day. My best to him. As for Judy I never liked her I always thought she was a phoney.

  78. Whenever Jane Treacy used to be on I would change the channel. It seems like they toned her down a bit but I still can't watch her. Same with Shawn. They just get on peoples nerves. So I just don't watch it anymore. And I used to spend a lot.

  79. Does Isaac Mizrahi have Tourette's Syndrome? If so I sympathize with him. If not, then he has BIZARRE SYNDROME & acts inappropriately on the air. I turn QVC off.

  80. I hope he is doing better. he in my prayers.
    Isnt it something they way people will trash one another even though they dont know them. Wow give us a break. So what he thought of who he was, he was good at what he did. Give a guy a break. Glad I dont know any of you trashers.

    2. QVC was NEVER a shopping channel in Minnesota. It started and still remains in West Chester PA. I started watching QVC 1989 and grew sick of hearing callers talk about "when you used to be CVN." It was NEVER CVN. QVC bought out CVN and CVN ceased to exist. Some hosts from CVN were hired by QVC - an example is Mary Beth Roe.

  82. Jeff-rey was the best of them all on QVC! He could sell anything they threw at him! People are mean. Just mean. Probably why he went into hiding. Hell has a special place for the mean ones. Sounds like y'all will have lots of company down there...

  83. I too notice a big difference with the newer QVC hosts. They talk too fast, talk over their product people such as Isaac (who by the way, I LOVE!) Not fond of the new women hosts and Jane Treacy seems to be trying to be just like them instead of her normal self. IF QVC is encouraging this playful interaction such as the Rick/Shawn "Anything Goes" show, I am not a fan! Act professional and not silly. Get rid of all the new Hosts, and start fresh.

  84. I was with QVC from the start and bought a lot. I loved Kathy, Jeff, and most of the early hosts. But even today, QVC is the best shopping channel BY FAR.

    Due to economic reasons, I had to go with basic cable and lost QVC. The only shopping channel is HSN, which is the PITS. The hosts know nothing about the features of the products. They have no personality and just repeat the same high-pressure lines for everything.

    The reps from the product companies are better but as soon as one is going to actually tell you what features the product has, the HSN host cuts them off with some high pressure crap they repeat for everything.

    They accept on-air calls but never talk human to human to them as I recall QVC doing, and rush all callers right off, as if these customers are beneath the hosts.

    Even worse, HSN will claim items have features/capabilities they do not have. And many of their product reviews are obviously fake, written by HSN themselves.

    In comparison QVC, even though it is not what it was, is so much better.

  85. You all are getting confused with Jeffrey Hewson. He did NOT have a stroke. He is NOT the only Jeffrey Hewson in the world!! It was another with the same name. As far as the QVC hosts, I agree. The new ones and some of the ones who have been there for awhile are terrible. I also agree, what gives with QVC and their products. If they keep buying from China, I hope that EVERYONE gets smart and stops ordering. The products are horrible and I guess Quality Control does not care, because they know that some people are dumb enough to buy their cheap looking, defective crap.

  86. It is quite sad to read such hatred. I say deal with the facts or keep it to yourself.

  87. I agree about some of the newer QVC hosts. Shawn K. is a female version of Rick Domeier(sp?) and a tacky dresser to boot...just a mouthpiece. Gone are the days of feminine classy women, like Kathy Levine, Mary Beth Roe, etc. Jane Treacy talks all over every guest vendor trying to present their product, shes so RUDE...Then, on top of that she always brings up places in Delaware County where she grew up...who the H*** cares? She was on a spiel for a while there about how old she was. Maybe if she stopped "talking all over" vendors she would be more respected as a mature person.

  88. Jeff and Kathy were the best. Hope he is doing well. I remember when he had Joan Collins on and he had his hands full. Judy has been all over the place and I was flipping channels and she was on Jewelry TV with a line. Been wathing since Value Vision merged with them. Lisa R does a good job. Leah Williams (sp) and Mary Beth and Antonella are always great to watch, seem like a real people and not putting on an act for the cameras. I think alot of times the hosts need to listen more and talk less, some talk over the vendors and forget what they asked the callers or what the callers said and repeat. I too have noticed some quality issues, Northeern Nights sheets do not seem to be made the same.

  89. I didn't know who Jef Hewson was until I went to a local auction here in Denver. I ended up bidding on boxes of "stuff" from a storage unit and most of the items belonged to him. This was about 2008 I think. Ended up selling most of the stuff on ebay. Yearbooks, etc. If the above comments are true...maybe he left his items behind here when he moved to AZ.?

  90. I can't agree more regarding the comments regarding Shawn. She is flirtous, poorly dressed and a deficit to QVC.
    Jane is so phoney; I'm sorry she returned to QVC.
    Sharon talks over her quests and her smacky kisses need to go.
    As for Jeff, who cares?!?

  91. I don't know who's a bitch and who's not, but the fact that he stormed out of QVC because some woman he married drove him to it while she remains happily married now to someone else shows that she's definitely capable of having a successful marriage and that the fault undoubtedly lied with Jeff. FIrst of all, he acts like he is gay, and I can't imagine that any straight woman in her right mind would've married someone who is so obviously not into women and why any guy who was clearly that gay would entertain the notion of coming within a foot of any vagina, so probably just a mistake on both parts. But I'm pretty sure the reason the marriage didn't last was because of the fact that he was into men. It would be one thing if he wasn't so obvious, but it was so I have to wonder what she was thinking, too. Another thing, i did not find him to be adorable, smart or funny. He came across as a boyish hick farm boy who constantly mispronounced foreign words (croissant he used to say and pronounced it phonetically I remember) and appealed mainly to old ladies with southern accents squandering their life savings on overpriced jewelry and figurines that they probably never bothered to open, but ordered nonetheless until senility finally overtook them. He was not a heart throb by amy stretch unless this type of man is someone who interests you. For most women, it's not. He did have really cool 18k shows and had impeccable manners. It's just that, as a woman, I do not understand his appeal sexually to other women.

  92. One night when jeff was on air someone called in calling him a fag...they quickly cut the caller off. About a few months later he was engaged to judy, and it ended. I feel sorry for anyone who is riddiculed publically, and i always wondered if the marriage was a cover for him? As far as judy goes, i think she broke up paul's marriage, but if his marriage was solid it would've been impossible. Just some thoughts. Paul acts and presents himself very much like jeff did.

  93. Nick Chavez is on QVC as I sit here typing..
    Judi Crowell married Paul Deasy and is doing infomercials along with her shopping channel sales
    I hope Jeff is well and the "Stroke" is a fabrication....If someone is "gay" so what, as long as they don't hurt anyone, live and let live... lizitish1@yahoo.com would love to hear the truth about Jeffrey!!!!! :)

  94. Tired of Jeff'n'Judy comments. My fave early QVC host was Toni Price (Molly Daly a close second). I collect vintage Hollywood autographs but was glad to receive an inscribed photo from Toni. Believe she had a career as a local tv news reporter in Phiilly area before, or after, her QVC days. Anyone know?

  95. Do not like that most QVC products are Made in China.
    Buy American! Chinese is good for" takeout" only. Product quality is POOR & CHEAP. I agree that a lot of the hosts (especially Lisa Robertson) talk over the product representative - they should "assist" not dominate.
    Lisa Robertson tries too hard to be humorous & funny & IT DOES NOT WORK! Despise her frequently used "Sister Sledge" reference. Also, claims she uses EVERY beauty product EVERYDAY. Comes across as vain, obnoxious & phony! Botoxed lips, fake hair extensions, fake nails, false eye lashes, overly self tanned.

  96. Re Lisa Robertson, watch her, she can't go 5seconds without looking at herself in the monitor! She's so pretty but so obviously lacking in self esteem. Quit looking at yourself for reassurance, Lisa, you are very pretty!

  97. For awhile thought Jane Tracey was having some type of a mental breakdown~Not to be mean But all of a sudden she started wearing like fit top dresses and then the skirt on it was like petticoat and flared and like 50's type sweaters~maybe it's not bad to some people BUT she comes across very wide in the hips~as for shawn Ugh~don't like Sandra and certainly not Carolyn~miss Lisa mason

  102. I think all of the shopping channels are over priced on their merchandise. They rave on about what a good deal they have, you can't buy these items in the brick and mortar stores for these prices, etc. So often, that is just not the case. Their prices need to be cut by 20 percent, given the volume they sell verses their overhead. There is little 'Value' anymore and the quality has definitely declined in many product categories. Having to send things back so often shoots down the 'convenience' factor as well. Shame on all of them! They took a great concept and ruined it with greed.

  103. I agree with many writers about the show hosts. Tell me about the product, don't dance to the music, chit chat about nothing, etc. So many of these show hosts are just irritating. They repeat the same rhetoric and their ignorance of the products they are selling is astonishing. For example, Shaun doesn't understand the most basic fashion terminology, always asking Isiac to explain terminology I learned in junior high home ec! Please, do your homework BEFORE you get on air. The funniest thing the other day was when a show host was talking about how cheap clothing failed to match patterns on the side seam. She held up a garment to prove the point that their products were superior and guess what, yep, horribly mismatched. Bless her heart, she just ignored and and kept on talking. At least I got a good laugh out of it. Unreal.

  106. Did anyone ever watch judy on jtv? Jtv has such low production quality. Judy was astounded by how prople kept interrupting her and cutting each other off. She was never a good fit there, but that was JTVs fault not hers.
