Paige Davis has been fired as the host of TLC’s Trading Spaces.A TLC rep tells the New York Post’s Page Six that “TLC is taking ‘Trading Spaces’ in a new creative direction, transitioning to a ‘host-less’ format this spring …
Perky Paige Davis is packing her toolbelt and leaving TLC’s popular renovation show, “Trading Spaces.” The network announced the change in a statement yesterday, attributing their new Paige-less look to a dynamic change in format which allows the show to “focus more on the homeowners.” Davis, who began hosting the popular renovation show in 2001, posted a touching au revoir on the show’s Web site.
“I just wanted to take a minute to say goodbye,” the 35-year-old TV personality wrote.

Since the New York Post brought up (again) the rumor that Page Davis made a sex tape years…
“I cannot begin to explain what an incredible journey this show has been for me. Like or Dislike: TLC’s firing of Paige Davis, BEFORE all the facts are available regarding the “Sex Tape”, is absurd!!!
I love `Trading Spaces’ so much, and I am very proud of what the cast and crew has brought to you.” Despite the hunky-dory arrangement, rumors have been swirling that Davis’ departure was prompted by recent bursts of risque behavior.

Like or Dislike: Who knew home improvement was so much fun? It now seems that the tape may not be Davis after all.
Previously, Paige survived the TV Guide cover scandal and the fundraiser stripping scandal, but this was apparently too much, according to the information, which apparently comes from a Banyan Productions insider’s friend. As a result, Paige Davis will be leaving the cast of Trading Spaces.
We believe that this new creative direction will enable the show to be more spontaneous, focus more on the homeowners and designers, and create alternative home trades in different cities and on opposite coasts.
Paige helped make Trading Spaces a great success for the network and we wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.
Paige’s last new episode will premiere in March, with repeat episodes of Trading Spaces airing throughout the year.
Last June, the New York Post reported that the married host engaged in an impromptu strip tease at a Broadway fund-raiser and there were also dogged hints of a sex tape circulating on the Internet starring the cheerful can-do chick. Maybe that sex tape that was, then wasn’t, now is again? Personally, I’m still holding out hope that the Paige Davis sex tape rumor turns out to be true – that’s one I’d actually shell out some hard-earned cash for. Like or Dislike: I hate that Paige has been fired from “Trading Spaces.” She’s been a big reason why I watched that show instead of any of the million other home-improvement shows that are on. The claim by TLC that they wanted to take the channel in a “different direction” is also drivel, ESPECIALLY since she ia the main reason for the success of Trading Spaces.
