reported Paige Davis sex tape is apparently not of the Trading Spaces host.
Last Thursday, Lloyd Grove announced that he’s giving up Paris Hilton. But if his Internet-found items hold up as well as his report on an alleged Paige Davis sex tape, he’ll have to return to Paris on about January 6. Lloyd pointed to reviews on the Celebrity Nudity Database that suggested the Trading Spaces host starred in her own sex tape. But the day after Lloyd’s item ran, someone contradicted the reports, writing,

We have been able to confirm through various sources that the woman in the sex tape we have is NOT, repeat NOT Paige Davis of TLC’s Trading Spaces. She looks and sounds almost exactly like Ms. Davis, but is certainly not her. I want to apologize for any misleading information that came out of this. We were trying our best to keep this quiet, but some within the company just had to get this info on the internet. Again, sorry.

There are several CNdb reviews of the tape; one says, “The Trading Spaces hostess is on tape having rough sex with a boyfriend several years ago. She sucks, gets spanked, and is eaten out in this tape, according to the distributors.” Although the sex tape may not be real, the pictures of her quasi-stripping at a charity event over the summer certainly are.
+ update: Lloyd Grove is still running with the story, despite the new info.

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
