QVC Host Faints on Live TV
WEST CHESTER, Pennsylvania — When it comes to live TV, the show must go on. A QVC host proved that when he continued to sell a product while his guest co-host collapsed.
Cassie Slane fainted Sunday while pitching a tablet device for kids.
Her co-host, Dan Hughes, was there to catch her, but kept hocking the product.
Slane returned to TV moments later, only to have more problems. She began slurring her words. That’s when Hughes said, “Cassie’s having a little problem.” He urged his co-host to sit down.
Slane is said to be doing fine. She took to Twitter on Monday, saying, “Thanks to everyone for the well wishes. Feeling better today!”
On her Facebook page, QVC host Carolyn Gracie attributed Slane’s collapse to low blood sugar.
Slane had a similar fainting incident on QVC back in 2010.
