The Best Times Celebrities Sold Stuff on QVC

by

Jennifer Hudson and The Jennifer Hudson Collection

Dream girl J-Hud is no stranger to being the face of a brand. Her full body transformation with Weight Watchers was the monochromatic ad seen ’round the world. We couldn’t find any videos of this diva selling or even talking about her QVC line; maybe she remembered she was a fierce, FIERCE Grammy/Oscar winner who could at least be selling her stuff in a Macy’s. Her line touts being for women of all shapes and sizes, but we’re crossing our fingers that this clip showing one of her recently marked down turquoise cotton gaucho jumpers isn’t for any woman, ever. And I am telling you, I’m not going (to buy that).

Rachel Zoe and Luxe by Rachel Zoe

I don’t know about you, but besides wondering how she could possibly claim to die 80 times an episode, every time I watched Rachel Zoe‘s Bravo show I wanted everything she ever wore. Sure, she was making Roger and the rest of us crazy with her weird back-throat voice, but she looked damn good. Well, lucky for us, she realized that vintage Chanel fur probably wasn’t in our monthly budgets and started her own QVC line.

Although you might not have expected to see this vintage fashion snob hocking costume jewelry on a home shopping network, Luxe by Rachel Zoe is full of her notorious “sunnies,” large stoned rings and furry vests.

Paula Abdul and Paula Abdul Jewelry

Straight up now tell me, Paula, were you drunk on QVC? Whilst reaching into the QVC archives, we found video of former American Idol judge and 80’s pop star Paula Abdul promoting her Paula Abdul Jewelry line, and looking like she’d been knocking a few back before the shoot. I mean, I guess if we had to sit next to Simon Cowell and were once forced to sing and dance with an animated cat, we’d need a drink, too (see: her “Opposites Attract” music video). We honestly couldn’t tell you what the heck she was selling, we were too busy rewinding and replaying the part of this clip where she hides behind a plant on live TV.

It’s happened. Thanksgiving came and went, and you stuffed your face with turkey, pie, stuffing, and potatoes. You name it, you ate it. Then you had a nap, and went back for seconds. And the next day you woke up in the morning and made a sandwich filled with leftovers for breakfast. We get it. We did, too. And we loved EVERY SECOND OF IT.

Now, we’re not here to encourage fad dieting or unhealthy crash eating habits. But we do understand that there might be a desire to try and get rid of that food baby that’s making you look pregnant right now. And that’s OK. Who better than to get diet advice from than the rich and famous? Celebrities have their diet game down — they have to stay healthy in order to look radiant and maintain energy, so there’s no room for starvation (something we would never recommend).

Here are 10 celebrity diets from the likes of Katy Perry and Jennifer Aniston you might want to try after Thanksgiving. You know, before you stuff yourself again at Christmas.

In other Kardashian news, Kris Jenner is getting involved in one of her daughter’s love lives.
The momager thinks of teen rapper Jaden Smith as her own son, so she probably wants him back with daughter Kylie Jenner. The 17-year-old Kardashian sister is rumored to be dating 24-year-old rapper Tyga, but was previously linked to Smith.
