Hidden Potential : Conspiracy Theory

When my lovely offspring are with the sperm donor for their "weekend" on Tuesday and Wednesdays, I am in Kewanee with my boyfriend. Where we spend the nights eating panini's and watching the Home and Garden network. Yes he is very much a man, but since he loves me THAT much he watches the decorating shows with me while we drink wine and make fun of people.

One of our favorite shows we have started watching is called Hidden Potential. The idea behind the show is young couples are trying to decide which of the three houses they want to be their first home but the houses need some work done to make it more livable. So the couple chooses three houses that they like and then the designer comes in and shows the couple three different designs that they can do with the money they will have after they buy the home. The concept is pretty cool and the designer uses this computer generated program to transform the old space into the new one so the owners can see what it could look like. Which is pretty interesting in and of itself but the thing I am now obsessed about is the designer on their Paige Rein. I didn't notice anything different about her at first until Eric brought up his theory that she used to be a man. She is very manly looking I'll give him that she has huge arms and a is massively tall. Whatever, I have known some manly looking women out there that are all women. I am not convinced she used to be a man until he tells me that there used to be another designer on the show named Barry Wood, which I knew because he used to be designer for TLC's Trading Spaces. So I google their pictures and OH MY GOD. I swear they are the same person. They look like they are brother and sister if nothing else, but apparently that rumor was put to rest. I found Paige's blog site where she states that her and Barry get asked the question if they are the same person all the time and she find it disturbing.

But come on!!! They look exactly alike. Last night we were studying all the things Spike TV told us to look for if a guy is on a date and not sure if his woman is really a woman. (Things that are important you know) Big hands? Check. Adams apple? I really can't tell cause she/he tends to wear alot of scarves. She is hugely tall and her face looks just like Barry Wood's. I know I know I need a hobby and Eric and I need to start watching something more productive like Robert Downy Jr movies, or porn but come on...You be the judge....
(The woman is on the top. I know right?)

No I havent seen an adam's apple, mainly cause I am too focused on her huge arms and the fact that she looks just like that guy! : ) It is a good show though

Wow. You're onto something here. Fishy, fishy, fishy. Not that there would be anything wrong with it were it to be true. It's just a mystery that needs solving, right?
I have heard the show is entertaining and now I've got double the reason to check it out.

Oh sure BV I'm all for men wanting to become women I mean who wouldn't right? I'm just sayin its a little bit odd. : )

their noses and chins are almost identical! how's the voice? because there is that saying "hormones can give, but they can't take away," so M to F trans people usually still have a deeper voice.

Wow! Your post is #6 on Google when Paige Rein is "googled". I am impressed.

I think one of the things my wife likes about me is that I enjoy watching most of what she likes to watch. But I like the fact that she likes to do "guy" things with me as well—like going to the hardware store.

I just saw Paige and thought the same thing....and I am a transgendered girl.

If She is Barry....Kudos to her for what she's accomplished.
