It's Better to Laugh...Life Good Luck Bad Hair Days & QVC

America's Top Learning Expert Shows How Every Child Can Succeed

The ultra-popular host of QVC shares her fascinating life story!


"I am who I am, and you like it or don't. I'm not changing. Since I made the decision to be myself, I've had more fun and better relationships than ever. No lightning bolt is going to strike this girl twice!"

Kathy Levine is the girl next door who answered an ad in 1986 and became a host for the then-infant cable-TV shopping network, QVC. A few years and over fifty million viewers later, Kathy, "the champion of the middle-aged, not-so-beautiful woman," is a national phenomenon.

In It's Better To Laugh..., Kathy reveals to her fans the most precious jewels of all -- her laughter, her tears, her hard-won triumphs, and what she's learned about life and being good to herself. She also tells all about life at QVC -- off and on camera, her romantic ups and downs, her special bond with her mother, and her ongoing struggles with her weight and hair!

Told with the warmth, honesty and humor that could only come from Kathy herself, It's Better To Laugh... brings us the nicest, funniest, most down to earth woman on television today -- sharing her intimate thoughts and experiences.

Joan Rivers was an American comedian, actress, talk show host, businesswoman, and celebrity. She was known for her brash manner and loud, raspy voice with a heavy metropolitan New York accent. Rivers was the National Chairwoman of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and is a board member of God's Love We Deliver. Like the ground-breaking Phyllis Diller, Rivers's act relied heavily on poking fun at herself. She died in 2014.
