Paige Davis - Biography

 

Mindy Paige Davis (born October 15, 1969, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania), billed as Paige Davis, is an American actress best known as a host of the reality television series Trading Spaces.

Davis attended Charles H. Bird Elementary School in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, from first grade through part of fifth. She lived for a time in Louisville, Kentucky, and graduated from the Louisville Youth Performing Arts School. She graduated from the Meadows School of the Arts at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.
Much of her training has been in musical theater as well as dancing, and she spent two-and-a-half years in the national touring company of the Broadway musical Beauty and the Beast playing the role of Babette the Feather Duster for her second year. During this period, she was sometimes credited as Mindy Paige Benson, following her 1994 marriage to actor Greg Benson.
In Los Angeles, California, Davis also did numerous TV commercials and videos.

In 2001, Davis became the host of the TLC cable-TV network's redecorating television series Trading Spaces, replacing Alex McLeod. Also that year, Davis married actor Patrick Page, with whom she appeared in Beauty and the Beast. Davis and Page's wedding was featured on the TLC series A Wedding Story.
TLC dropped Davis in January 2005 to revamp the show with a host-less format. There was some media speculation that TLC's decision was in part motivated by Davis' appearance in TV Guide "wearing nothing but wallpaper" and her performance of a faux striptease in a "Broadway Bares/Equity Fights AIDS" charity event. The New York Post had reported in its "Page Six" column that Davis exposed her thong and permitted onlookers to touch her body. Davis responded to the story on the TLC message boards, writing that she had been dressed "...in a very modest, almost demure, yellow dress, cut to my sternum." She acknowledged that she had "flipped her skirt for a second" and said that she "kept all of her clothes on at all times." She went on to characterize the article as "rumor and exaggeration" in its description of the event. The Post responded after Star magazine published three pictures of the event in their July 2, 2004, issue, noting that the photos showed Davis in poses that appeared to confirm the Post's version of the story. However, both Davis and the network insisted there was no connection between the controversies and the format change, which the network described as a decision to take the show "in a new creative direction." Davis subsequently signed a multi-year agreement with television syndication company King World Productions/CBS to develop new scripted and reality programming, including a deal to co-star in a daytime television program with interior designer Nate Berkus, but nothing came to air.
TLC announced in November 2007 that Davis would return as host of Trading Spaces in January 2008, along with others formerly associated with the program. Reports on the announcement published in the New York Post and in Davis' hometown paper the Philadelphia Inquirer remarked on the earlier "bad press" in 2005, with the Post commenting, "Apparently, that 'new creative direction' has done an about-face," and the Inquirer quoting a network vice president who "doesn't know the specifics behind the perky Davis' firing, but called it 'shortsightedness.'"

During her initial run on Trading Spaces, Davis played the role of Roxie Hart in the musical Chicago on Broadway, and wrote the book Paige by Paige (ISBN 0-696-21836-4), chronicling her television experiences. It spent numerous weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list. By 2007, Davis had created a cabaret act, Taking A Chance, described as "chronicling how the choices Davis has made have informed her life's loves"; In mid-2007 she took over the title role in the national touring production of the Broadway revival Sweet Charity, replacing Molly Ringwald through the end of the show's scheduled run on August 12, 2007.
Davis made other television appearances during and after her hosting duties. In 2004, she was a guest judge on the Food Network's Iron Chef America in "Battle Egg." She also was a contestant on the summer 2006 CBS television series Gameshow Marathon, in which celebrities participated in recreations of classic game shows with their winnings going to charity.
Appearing on Ellen DeGeneres' show on January 24, 2008, Davis shared with the audience her excitement about returning to Trading Spaces. She praised the new TLC executive team and its intention to keep "TS" fresh, while at the same time maintaining the original mission of the popular show, which has been the inspiration for so many others.
Davis is currently spokesperson for RC Willey Home Furnishings, a subsidiary of Berkshire-Hathaway, with locations in Utah, Idaho, Nevada, and California.
In September 2008, Eastman Kodak Company formed a U.S. partnership with Trading Spaces and with Davis to encourage people to explore their creativity with their photos. Davis will act as Kodak’s celebrity spokesperson with the media through March 2009, sharing Kodak-inspired projects and ideas in the weekly design show, 30-second TV spots, on-line tips, videos, and a custom-published magazine.
Paige recently finished a run in the Broadway play, Boeing-Boeing opposite Christine Baranski, Mark Rylance, Greg Germann, Missi Pyle and Rebecca Gayheart.
