Paige Davis might be on the verge of getting something many want, but few actually enjoy - vindication.
She wants vindication for being dumped - badly - as the host of “Trading Spaces” in 2005. And oddly, she might just get that satisfaction on “Trading Spaces,” where she returns as host Saturday at 10 p.m. on TLC.
“It’s not something I ever would have considered,” Davis told the Daily News during a break in production Friday. “My departure was very bad; it was a decision I didn’t understand, why it had been made. I didn’t understand why it was done in a harsh manner. I was pretty hurt by the people who were running TLC at the time.”
Back then, Davis’ departure was announced by TLC in a statement that said they wanted to take “Trading Spaces” in a “new creative direction” and that it would go hostless.
