EMERIL, Why did he leave HSN and go to QVC??

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHY EMERIL LEFT HSN?? After setting up my DVR programs for the next 2 weeks, I kept seeing EMERIL on the schedule at QVC. I thought to myself W-H-A-T??

Probably because he was always paired with Shannon and could not get a word in because of her constant, yeah, ok, snort, yeah, ok, snort.

Celebrities usually leave one shopping channel for another because they have been offered more money. I read this is why Suzanne Somers left HSN for the peacock channel.

You are probably right. lol She does that to everyone. I wish they would stop having her on at midnight so I could watch the first airing of the TS.

RE: EMERIL, Why did he leave HSN and go to QVC??

My personal opinion is a) more money and b) there just wasn't enough room for two star chefs Emeril and Wolfgang Puck. These are two top chefs. The major difference was with WP you have to be very careful with because he has a much lower quality control standard than Emeril and will put his name on anything. I know because all of the items I've purchased from WP have never lasted. Emeril seems to care very much what he puts his name on. But, I think it has to be more A than B; but, something else had to have happened because I just can't picture HSN telling such a successful chef and entrepreneur they're taking a bigger cut of his money, and also if he said he was leaving why wouldn't HSN make a counter offer. Apparently, there is at least a little bad blood. Wasn't In the Kitchen With David also HSN or was he QVC. Can't really remember.

Hey, maybe he'll get more money by getting a cut of the outrageous s/h that Q charges! *snark*

My guess is the $24 million lawsuit filed against Martha Stewart, Emeril and HSN for selling knock-off German knives that were actually made in China. There can be additional reasons as well.

OH! ...didn't know about that!

Funny how many of these cooking "personalities" have gotten into big problems.

...well, maybe not so funny.

The lawsuit was settled some time ago. They can no longer print "Solingen Germany" on the cutlery. Who cares, best knives I have every used in my life. The little snap to the counter sharpener is a must have. In my opinion go to Emeril for knives and Wolfgang for the stainless pans.
