How Much Is Antonella's Net Worth?

Following her dream, she went for the show’s audition, although she lacked experience and had no marketing skills. Rejected two times, Antonella did not lose hope. The third time she came out with confidence compelling the people around her to select her. After all these trials, she got her dream job.

What is Antonella Nester Doing Now?
Back in 2020, QVC let go of some of its hosts. Antonella was one of those hosts. She revealed that the reason behind her departure via a Facebook post. In the post, she mentioned that it was because of the re-airing of the recorded program in QVC2.
Few weeks after her news of leaving QVC, Nester announced her plans of living on a boat with her husband through her social media. On November 12, 2020, Nester uploaded a video on her YouTube titled 'Goodbye home...selling our home', which featured the interiors and exteriors of their house and the process of selling their house and buying a boat.
After Nester posted the video, her fans expressed their concerns regarding her decision, which she addressed during a video a month later. Nester mentioned that due to her and Chris’s unemployment, they could not pay their house mortgage.
However, Nester also stated that living on a boat was their retirement plan of 33 years, and they implemented the plan quicker as both of them were jobless during the same time.
A Sweet Love Story of Antonella And Chris
Antonella is married to Chris and is blessed with three adorable children. She and Chris met in college and were best friends for three years. The crazy in love best friends turned into a forever couple.
Antonella has many sweet stories to tell about her love story. In 2018 she shared a personal story with the QVC community. Nester revealed that she and her husband didn’t make a decent earning when they were just married.
Once the couple saved up for a few months, they decided to get the bracelet that Nester really liked. While buying that bracelet, her husband, who barely noticed jewelry noticed a watch that he liked. She said that when Chris saw the watch, it was the same face that she made when she saw the bracelet. The watch was the same price as the bracelet: $150.
Since Chris never bought anything for himself, Nester decided not to buy the bracelet. She instead chose to pick the watch for her husband. But Chris insisted on getting the bracelet for which he saved money for an entire year. The couple argued for a while in front of the storekeeper, and Nester sneakily insisted on finalizing the watch instead of the bracelet.
The storekeeper was moved by their love and offered to sell both the items for ½ the price, which enabled them to buy both the bracelet and the watch.

Weight loss and Cancer
Nester has always been vocal about her cancer journey with her fans. Initially, she had a nerve sheath tumor in her arm. After the specialists diagnosed the tumor as a dead cyst, Nester underwent surgery during December 2020, but the tumor's biopsy concluded it to be malignant lymphoma.

Because of the disease, Antonella lost 40 pounds and felt constant lethargy even after proper diet and sleep.
