What Happened to Kim Gravel? How It Affected Her QVC Career and Recovery

Bella by Kim Gravel is a popular name for clothes on QVC. The famous designer often goes on live shopping to promote her clothes, which include leggings, tops, coats, sweaters, and more.

Around December 2023, fans noticed that Kim wasn’t on the show. Even though nothing has been proven as of this writing, there were early rumors that the star had a stroke and was out of the country.

Fans are saying that Kim looks and maybe even acts differently now that she’s back. Okay, where did Kim Gravel go?

What Happened to Kim Gravel on QVC?

For sure, we don’t know why Kim was off the air for a while or if she had any kind of health scare lately. But there is a lot of talk about the golden blonde on the QVC blog.

Someone who watched on January 10, 2024, said, “She’s back on today with Mary.” For some reason, her mouth looks like it’s been worked on. She keeps putting her hand there. “She might have talked about it on the show, but I just watched it, so I might have missed it.”

At the same time, someone else wondered if Kim had Bell’s palsy. At the start of the show, Kim said she has Bell’s palsy, according to one reviewer.

What Happened to Kim Gravel?

The Mayo Clinic says that Bell’s palsy is marked by “sudden weakness in the muscles on one side of the face.” The medical expert backs up what many QVC watchers are saying on the blog, which is that the condition is only temporary and that most people get better in a few weeks.

A person may feel this way: “The weakness makes half of the face look like it droops,” says the Mayo Clinic. One-sided smiles happen, and the eye on the affected side won’t close.

At this point, the condition’s cause is mostly unknown, but it could be caused by a virus like the flu. Women who are pregnant, have diabetes, high blood pressure, or are overweight are all at risk.

Bell’s Palsy Has Affected a Lot of Celebrities

It looks like a lot of people have this condition, though we still don’t know for sure if Kim Gravel has Bell’s palsy. But she’s not the first person on TV or in the movies to have been told they had one-sided face paralysis.

A-listers like George Clooney have talked freely about having had Bell’s palsy in the past. The actor went on Jimmy Kimmel’s show in January 2023. During his speech, Jimmy was showing pictures of George when he was a teenager when the star cut him off.

“Now wait, I want to point out something because you’re going to laugh, going to make a joke,” Clooney stated. “I have Bell’s palsy there, and half of my face is paralyzed.”

In 2016, Angelina Jolie talked about how she had successfully handled the condition. She told Vanity Fair, “Sometimes women in families put themselves last until it shows up in their health.”

Pierce Brosnan and Terrence Howard have also had Bell’s palsy and fully recovered.

If Kim from QVC has Bell’s palsy right now, we hope she gets better quickly and has as much privacy as possible while she does so.
