Vanna White takes a turn selling linens on Home Shopping

Wheel of Fortune hostess Vanna White will make her Home Shopping Network debut Nov. 10 to introduce her line of bed linens and women's fashions, HSN officials announced Tuesday. "We are pleased to bring Vanna White into our Home Shopping family," said Roy M. Speer, chairman and chief executive of St. Petersburg-based Home Shopping. "Americans believe in Vanna, and Vanna believes in the product lines she's introducing on Home Shopping. I know our viewers will enjoy having the chance to call and chat with Vanna on the air."

White, famous for her letter-turning on the popular Wheel of Fortune, said she was excited about the prospect of presenting her products on HSN.

"I chose to offer linens because when it comes to buying them for yourself, I know I'm like most people _ I'll usually find something I think I need more. My "White Sale' will offer viewers the perfect way to treat themselves to top-of-the-line designer linens at affordable prices for everyone."

White's collection also includes Vanna look-alike dolls.

She will appear on Home Shopping's cable and broadcast television networks Nov. 10 and 11.
