49 thoughts on “Carolyn Gracie QVC, Wiki, Married Husband, Bio, Net worth, Age, Surgery”

  1. Carolyn loves to tease Gary, but it comes off as hostile passive-aggressiveness. I love her smooth “radio” voice, but that squirrel schtick has got to go. I actually think she is sick of it herself but has sort of boxed herself into a corner with the whole routine, and, to save face has to double down on the routine.

    Many viewers will remember her on-air giving a raspberry (a Bronx cheer) to viewers who had the temerity to write and ask Carolyn to tone down the squirrels. She obviously was upset and took it out on them. Not a nice woman.

  2. I was always a size small until I quit smoking and immediately gained 20 pounds. I feel so negative about being 66 and overweight, but having a host like Carolyn who isn’t tiny but is clearly confident in her appearance, gives me hope. Like many others, I like her down-to-earth personality, which most of the QVC hosts don’t have.

  3. Carolyn,

    I think you are the greatest person for QVC. You know how to explain everything you do on the product. David Venable is next in line!!!

  4. Alberti seems to work better alone. Amy just steamrolls all over him. Rachel and Alberti are a much better fit together. I enjoy watching all of the hosts and think they all do a wonderful job. My favorite host is, however, Carolyn Gracie.

  5. As an actual former TV and print model and an on-air personality almost 50 years ago, it seems what I learned half a century ago still holds true. Unhappy, and perhaps jealous in some way people, are usually the ones who make nasty comments. Do you “ladies” want Carolyn’s job maybe? Are you size XXS with hairdressers and makeup people available whenever you want? Since you feel you have the right to criticize, could you please upload a current photo where these people who left nicer comments can view it? I have pulled a lot of punches with this epistle. But, I can only say how very sad it is that someone was probably unkind to you. Please don’t perpetuate that behavior.

  6. I have been a QVC customer since the 1990s.

    I purchase everything from them. They stand behind their products and have great items. Leah & Carolyn, Mary Ann & David are my favorites of the older crew.

    Alberti & Amy from the younger group both do a great job. They are fun to watch. Shawn is too much of a name-dropper social climber to be in the group. It’s a negative distraction from the show.

  7. Love watching Carolyn and Gary. Love Jayne and Pat, Leah, Alberti, and Amy. They’re great. Love David and Dan, as well. Been shopping at the Q since 2010. It started when we had a big snowstorm. One thing I will request for all vendors to perhaps incorporate bust darts in the tops for a more polished fit. Thanks much!

  8. I really think Carolyn is a sweet person with a personality to match. She is genuine and it shows through. Love watching you and Gary. Keep going strong and don’t ever change.

  9. I love Tuesday mornings. I get up early to watch Carolyn and Gary on Denim and Co. They both work well together. Gary reminds me of my brother-in-law whose name is Gary also. You guys simply rock!

  10. Agree…and every other word is uh, so uh so. I’m embarrassed for her…tight clothes. She insists on stuffing herself into a size clothing way too small and it looks terrible.

  11. I love Carolyn Gracie…she is a very good host.

    Love it when she hosts very kind and understanding to the callers that phone in. Definitely not a phony like so many are. Some of you people are so mean and rude if you don’t have something nice to say don’t do anything at all. There’s enough meanness in this world.

  12. Carolyn Gracie is the “BEST”…down to earth and honest. Some of the hosts are so ridiculous and full of themselves, that I won’t buy what they are selling. Give us more hosts like Carolyn!

  13. Kirsten Lindquist: stop the stealing of products
    While on-air and all the time. Your house is an absolute
    Disaster as are the habits and disgusting Poe’s of
    You and the children unruly, but you know that is
    Because mama is too busy being s*xy whatever.
    You don’t have it, girl. You just don’t have it.
    Your dog has been treated with abuse how sad it is
    Obvious and very sad.

  14. I enjoy Carolyn but the most obnoxious host ever is Rachel Boesing. That person is loud, abrupt, no manners, and very insecure.

    Another is Shawn. Wow! She appears to be high and drunk most times on TV, but so does Courtney k. Another whatever, young, foolish gal, who needs to get sober. So many people comment on the caliber of these hosts but please Respect Carolyn she has quality.

    Thank you.

  15. Carolyn is an exceptional host. It would be great if she could open her mind to a whole new hairdo. She needs an uplifting style as that hair is like a helmet on her head, coming completely downward as all the bulk at the crown is so heavy.

    Wonder why a stylist on the show van guides her into a nice new uplifting hairdo. It is just not attractive it squashes her face and covers up more than half to get a new hairstyle!!! Less bulk on top! How does she stand it?

  16. I so enjoy Carolyn & Gary. I’m 87 & I don’t buy a lot of things, but I enjoy keeping up with what is going on in clothing. I enjoy watching the other hosts also. I especially love to watch Alberti, Jayne & Pat.

  17. my favorites are Carolyn and Leah. David Venable is great too, they have such great personalities and explain everything well so you know if the product is for you. They are so honest as well

    1. I refuse to watch her!. She comes off as snobbish and makes constant references about her large property. A couple of years ago she made a denigrating comment about people who have chain-link fences while she was presenting a faux ivy attachment for fences.

  18. Carolyn is one of my favorite host at the Q!!! Others include Leah, Gabrielle, Amy, Jayne, Pat, David, Rachel, Jane and Rick. Loved Jill also. I miss her so much. Keep up the good work Carolyn. Love you

  19. I love Carolyn Gracie!!! She is so genuine and sweet. She explains items presented thoroughly. She is interesting and lovable. She seems to have a great love for people and animals. Love her tips on gardening! Carolyn is one of my favorite QVC host, Others include Leah, Gabrielle, Amy, Jayne, Pat, David, Rachel, Jane and Rick. Jill was also one o my favorites. Miss her.

  20. Carolyn luv u. We’re in a sister hood of breast cancer survivors.2015 was both of our findings. Here’s to good health!

  21. I so look forward to Tuesday’s when Gary and Carolyn host Denim & Co. No matter what’s going on in my life, I can count on having a relaxing hour with them. Love you both. Keep up the good work. Sandee

  22. I just love Carolyn. She does such a great job explaining everything we want or need to know about the products she is showing. I am sorry, but I totally disagree with Doris. I love it when she shares her life with us!! Wish others did the same.

  23. I have been watching Carolyn! Carolyn is an excellent host very sincere and friendly! So she talks about her belongings, there’s no harm being done, I believe she just feels comfortable with her viewers and tries to connect on a personal level! Keep up the good job Carolyn and denim company has really flourished under your hostessness!

  24. I just love Carolyn Gracie, she started me on Denim and Co. The only time I buy Denim and Co is when it is the Garolyn show, no other host will due for me. The two of them just make my day, I look forward to them on Tuesday’s. I hope Gary and Carolyn read this, you are the best team and probably sell the most. Keep the humor

  25. I love tuning in to all of Carolyn’s episodes. She is professional, comfortable, and realistic. And her new hairdo (March 2018) rocks!

  26. A great host on QVC. Watching your show with Mr. Beams motion sensor spotlights…I had the same problem with my outdoor coach lights on my garage going out every few weeks—until I replaced the candleabra bulbs with LED lights. I have not had an issue for 5 months with my New replacement. Thought you might enjoy giving your lights a try with LEDs…
