Remember when everyone who was anyone who knew anything watched “Trading Spaces”? It was such a great show. Cute host Paige Davis introduced us to the neighbors who were going to take over each others’ homes for a few days, fun, innovative, and sometime psychotic designers (*cough*Hildi*cough*) were in charge, they had the help of one great carpenter, and it was all with a very limited budget and in a very limited time. What great TV.
Anybody still watch that show anymore? Yeah, me neither. Paige is gone. Ty and Carter each have their own shows now. The only designers they seem to use anymore are Frank, Dough, and Hildi. Blah, blah, blah. The only thing worth watching on TLC these days is “What Not to Wear” (which, by the way, I would LOVE to go on that show so anyone reading this is more than welcome to secretly videotape my horrible sense of style and send it in. I love Stacy and Clinton and will listen to every single word they say and I won’t fight with them unless they try to take away my t-shirts with really funny sayings on them like “Anything your guard can do, mine can do better” or with cute pictures, like the one with the monster from Where The Wild Things Are).
I read online some good news about “Trading Spaces”, however. Paige is coming back!! They want her back! Yay! They are bringing back some of the old designers and they are completely revamping the show (to get the ratings back up, of course). Anybody else as excited as I? Seriously, I love Paige! Did you know her real first name is actually Mindy? But Paige seemed a better fit for the show. Oh, and then did you know that she married a guy who’s last name is Page? So she didn’t take his name because then she’d be Paige Page. Ha!! It’s all true! And of course everyone knows that she is a successful Broadway star. This chick is cool. The show is going to get good again.
Too bad we’re cutting our cable to save a few bucks.
