Vern quits Trading Spaces for NBC show; Doug staying for three more years.
Vern Yip is quitting his gig as a Trading Spaces designer. He’s taking his leather jacket and anal retentiveness from TLC to NBC, where he’ll host Design Intervention. On the new show, he tells the Baton Rouge Advocate, “We’re going to transform an entire house, inside and out in two weeks,” including the yard. Fellow drama queen and designer Doug Wilson is keeping his leather pants at TLC: He tells Zap2it.com, “I’m signed on to ‘Trading Spaces’ for three more years. I’m making TLC my home, so people know where to tune in and find me.” Part of those three years will be spent doing various specials, which Doug previews: One is a series of “four, two-hour quarterly segments for TLC, called ‘America’s Ugliest Rooms’–big-budget, lots of fun.” He also says there will be a Trading Spaces musical episode, an episode on his family’s farm where his brothers switch rooms, a Medieval version that will take place in Scotland castles, and a special that is “going to let the viewers choose the next new designer.”
