    I have often wondered whatever happened to some of the old/ex models on QVC like…..Carol (the redhead) and her buddy (the blonde whose DH had a restaurant) that were on many years ago. Melissa who had twins who used to be on PMS and many other models.
    It sure would be nice to compile a list of them and what they’re doing now!!

    I compiled a list of QVC models that I know of starting from when I started watching about 15 years ago:   :blink:

    Aiko Heike – Married and I see her on QVC once in a blue moon; I think it was a special occasion, actually! I miss her presence on QVC! Update 1/5/2015: News from our QVC Queen Debra! Aiko is married to a Canadian, then moved to Mexico, and is now with another gentleman.

     

    Angela Izzo – Still very active on QVC! I’ve seen her on fashion, jewelry, and mattress/pillow shows.

     

    Anne Glunk – She doesn’t seem to be on QVC often anymore but she was there on New Year’s Day modeling! I wish she’s on a lot more, another one of my favorite models! Update 2017: Anne has been on QVC often. Hooray!

     

    Carole Alston-Bissett – You can read an update here.

     

    Colleen – Very active on QVC especially for fashion shows. She’s super fun to watch!

     

    Deanna Fontanez – She’s one of the younger models and very active at QVC.

     

    Dorian – She was quite popular on the Q many years ago and then poof! I felt like she suddenly wasn’t there anymore.

     

    Jacqui Thompson – Very active at QVC! She does lots of fashion shows and is a regular on Isaac Mizrahi’s shows and The Lisa Robertson Show before it ended. I :heart: it whenever she’s on a show!

     

    Joy Pinizzotto – She’s on QVC once in a while! My favorite beauty model! She could have been a makeup artist, IMHO. Update 1/5/2015: News from our QVC Queen Debra. Joy is on a lot during the day for makeup {BE, Laura Geller & Mally} and WEN, home goods. She rarely does fashion and her hubby is the #3 guy for Vionic/Orthaheel {Joakim Alvarez} Update 2017: I should have shared this a lot sooner. Joy has not been on the Q in a long time. I believe she has her own modeling business; and many of her former QVC model friends work with her agency too :ladywink:

     

    Kate Coll – Very active at QVC for fashion and jewelry shows. She was a regular model for The Lisa Robertson Show. When I see Kate, I think of QVC the way they used to be.

     

    Kerin Martucci – Still see her once in a while on QVC!

     

    Kerri Kazall – Still very active on QVC for a variety of fashion shows, WEN, and beauty!

     

     

    Lorraine McKiniry – One of my favorite Q models from a long time ago and she only returned a few times after her departure. I remember seeing her in a commercial years ago on the mainstream channels :ladywink:

     

    Melissa – Married and retired. Most recently popped up on Lisa Robertson’s final show. Above is a photo of Melissa (right) with fellow Q models Brenda (left) and Monica (center) who are both active on QVC. Update 9/2017: I’ve seen her twice this month, including on the Red Carpet Live in LA show! ! I wonder if she’s back permanently?

     

    Rebecca then (above)

    Rebecca Now… looking fab! She was off QVC for a very long time and I think she popped up on the Q earlier this year (2017) but I missed it! Hope she shows up a lot more.

     

    Sheila Alasha – Still see her on QVC from time to time. :heart: her shows! Update 2017: Sheila’s been on the Q a lot. YAY!!!

     

    Stacy – Very active at QVC! She was a regular model for The Lisa Robertson Show and Joan Rivers Collection. Update 2017: I feel like I haven’t seen Stacy on much this year.

     

    Suzanne Thomson – Very active at QVC! She is one of the regular models for the Joan Rivers line and in many fashion / beauty / and jewelry shows.

     

    Thea Marr – I have seen Thea on QVC once in a while!

     

    Trina Clark – It’s been rough. You can watch a video here and here.

    Thank you so much for the update!! I started watching QVC within about 2 months of it’s debut. The first two hosts were Bob and Kathy and you HAD to call in within the presentation of the product, usually 3-5 minutes, to get it. The sets were minimal and there were about 2 or 3 models.
    I can’t remember their names, but one left modelling and became the “voice” on the phone lines and one retired, but still worked there for a while in another position.
    I guess I’ve been watching since about 1988 or so.
    I really liked Patti and both Lisas, so I really don’t watch any more at all. Jill is about the only one who keeps my attention.

    sbar – I know what you mean! We watch the hosts and models for years and while we understand people move on from their jobs… there is a void when our favorites leave :ok: I’m with you on being big Patti and the two Lisas fans!

    Thanks for all the news, Q Queen Debra! Really appreciate it!

    Wow, Joy’s hubby is one handsome fellow! Not surprising since Joy is gorgeous and it seems to be a pattern for all the Orthaheel guys to be good looking! :teehee:

    Found a pic of Liam (Left) and Joakim (Right)! Is Joakim Australian like the other Orthaheel guys? :ladywink:

    Thanks so much! As you posted, we do get attached to people who are in our homes every day and while I know they long for privacy it is nice to know wht they’re up to after they leave. Lisa R. is by far the most approachable host. She’s so secure in her own skin and appreciates her fans.

    Cool thread! Long time viewer myself, and definitely have a fondness towards
    the former/older models and hosts. I started watching back in the early 90s.

    Some of my favorite models were already listed on page 1. A few others that come to mind are Linda, Abbe, Luanne and Karen. I haven’t seen any of them for a long time, so I have to assume they have all left. Only have a picture of Karen , in case anyone remembers, very class looking lady.

    I remember her! I really liked the models from “back in the day”. Linda and Carole always worked together and seemed to be great friends off the air. I remember Linda and her husband opened 1-2 Italian restaurants/pizzarias, but she still worked occasionally for a few years. She finally left when the restaurants became successful and she was needed there. They made a pretty big deal about her departure.
    I also miss Dorian. She was so much fun!

    I have watched QVC since the very first day the aired! Kathy Levine selling a strand of pearls. Times have certainly changed and lot of the host and models through the years have came and went. It is weird but you actually do get use to watching them and honestly in a lot of ways because of how much they share on air and different places on the internet now it really is like watching a soap opera! It really is interesting how a lot of them end up dating and even marrying each other. Of course they spend so many hours at the work place that is who they are interacting with. Jane Treaceys’ husband Sean worked for QVC and of course Jacques’ husband Jim works there. Colleen Lopez at HSN her personal assistant married her son and she also models at HSN. There have been several marriages at HSN between different employees also. Quite interesting history through the years.
