TLC aka The Learning Channel may not be the educational powerhouse it started out as, but there is no doubt that it is still very popular. Now, TLC has done everything from reality series to home renovation shows and shows no signs of slowing down. With a ton of popular shows and their stars like The Little Couple, Say Yes to the Dress, and Little People, Big World dominating the network right now, it is easy to forget some of the original stars and hosts of now forgotten series. Take a look at 9 forgotten popular TLC stars and hosts and find out what they are up to now!
9. Paige Davis
From 2000-2008, Trading Spaces was one of the most popular series on TLC and for the majority of that time, Paige Davis served as the host. After the series came to an end, Davis went on to host segments on The Best of Trading Spaces which aired on OWN and also hosted Home Made Simple on the Oprah Network. Along with other hosting duties, she continued her theater work starring in Chicago, Sweet Charity, Boeing-Boeing and Senga Quinn over the years and is currently starring in the interactive theatre play Miss Abigail’s Guide to Dating, Mating, & Marriage. Of course, with the news that Trading Spaces is being revived the big question was if Davis was also being brought back, and the answer is yes! So get ready for the return of Trading Spaces along with Davis when the hit series returns to TLC in 2018.
8. Kelly Nishimoto and Sam Saboura
One of the areas TLC has especially thrived on is weddings with shows like Four Weddings, Say Yes to the Dress and their spin-offs. For three seasons Something Borrowed, Something New was also in their wedding lineup hosted by Kelly Nishimoto and Sam Saboura. After the series wasn’t renewed following its third season, Nishimoto continued to focus on her personal brand with her own comfy pant line Cute Booty and is balancing being a mom and an entrepreneur. Meanwhile Sam Saboura has taken his stylist expertise to several shows working as a stylist for the Food Network, and worked exclusively as the stylist for Giada De Laurentiis’ Food Network shows Giada Entertains and Giada Italy. He also recently worked as the style expert for SportsCenter from 2015-2017.
