Rhonda Shear: Next on TVC

Actress, comedienne, entrepreneur and author Rhonda Shear will join us this weekend on TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Most of you probably know Rhonda Shear as the host of USA’s Up All Night, which she did for eight years throughout the 1990s. Some of you know her for her award-winning brand of intimate apparel, which includes the revolutionary Ahh Bra, as well as her many appearances on HSN, the Home Shopping Network. What you may not know is that Rhonda is also a beauty queen, model, actress, comedienne, dancer, hostess, businesswoman, designer, philanthropist, political operator, onetime political candidate, mentor, and diva… all rolled into one. Not only that, everything that Rhonda accomplished in show business, she did it on her own terms—using her beauty and wit to her advantage, at a time when the entertainment industry was still very much male-dominated and women were objectified.

Rhonda’s new book, Up All Night: From Hollywood Bombshell to Lingerie Model: Life Lessons from an Accidental Feminist, has great stories about her life and career in the pageant, entertainment and garment industries, including how her longtime association with Chuck Barris (and how that cost her a chance at being Miss America), the ups and downs of her experience on Happy Days, the time when she nearly decapitated Bob Hope while auditioning for an NBC special, and nearly decapitated Bob Hope, and how her experience as a stand-up comic prepared her for her current career as hostess on HSN. But the book also shares many lessons that she learned along the way that you can apply, whether you’re female or male, and whatever career path you happen to take. Rhonda Shear will join us in our second hour.

Our first hour will include This Week in TV History, a Debra Messing-centric edition of our regular DVD report, and a replay our Sounds of Lost Television segment that focused on Playboy’s Playhouse, an early television effort by Hugh Hefner that essentially served as a precursor to Playboy After Dark.
