Paige Davis Comes Back to 'Trading Spaces'

Paige Davis might be on the brink of getting something many seek, but few really love - exoneration. She wants exoneration for being dumped - severely - as the host of "Trading Spaces" in 2005. And oddly, she might just have that gratification on "Trading Spaces," where she returns as host Saturday at 10 p. m. on TLC. "It's not something I always would get considered," Davis told the Daily News during a recess in output Friday. "My exit was really terrible; it was a resolution I didn't realize, why it had been made. I didn't realize why it was done in a rough style. I was pretty damage by the folk who were running TLC at the moment."

Back so, Davis' exit was announced by TLC in an assertion that said they wanted to go "Trading Spaces" in an "original imaginative instruction" and that it would get hostless. Ratings disappeared faster than a hoop of Snickers bars at an outing for "Biggest Loser" candidates. Once the hottest display on TLC and the touchpoint for stake in an original rise of how-to shows, the reconfigured, hostless, "Trading Spaces" became a loser. "It took me a few months to go to terms with it," Davis said of the sacking. "I'd like to tell it was just another career blip, but it wasn't. I had dedicated then more of myself that wasn't in my work description. I took it a little harder than warranted. But it came out of left area and was done in a comparatively cruel manner."

She was lured backwards by an original administration squad at TLC and by the fact that the display is now produced by a distinct party. More significant, all involved were determined to take the display to its new format: a pair of designers redoing one room in homes of friends, with Davis as the host. "They said, 'We seek to offer you the chance to have that display increase, to take it backwards,'" Davis said. "They wear't feeling 'Trading Spaces' had operate its class," she said. "They look it was operate into the soil. " In the three years she's been off, Davis has worked to produce programs with King World and CBS, and returned to the theater reality she loved.

Once backwards on the "Trading Spaces" work, Davis said it felt like she hadn't left. Some of the same on-camera folk are yet around. And they've returned to some of the staples of the new, such as the music and consumption of elevated cameras to document the changes. That sits easily with Davis, overly. "Now that entire moment period becomes just another region of the travel, quite than the conclusion," she said. "I'm getting to rewrite the conclusion of my script. [Being fired] was just a chapter. After shooting the best installment of the original season that strike me really powerfully: how robust it was to go backwards and make it again."
