Amy Paffrath -- Canned from 'Dating Naked' But Still Happy As a Clam (Video)

  • TMZ
[[tmz:video id="0_dfxdxlej"]] Former "Dating Naked" host Amy Paffrath might be the happiest person we've seen after losing a seriously kush Hollywood gig. We got Amy outside Fred Segal in WeHo and asked why she wouldn't be hosting season 3 of the show. She was dropped just a few weeks before shooting started ... which makes the tone of her response even more remarkable. Zero bitterness, tons of praise for her old co-workers, and she even worked in a plug for her latest project.

Dating Naked: Playing For Keeps — Dare To Date Bare … Again.

Last season, VH1 took dating to a whole new level with the series, Dating Naked where brave singles bared their bodies in the search for love. Host Amy Paffrath shared that for some of the show’s participants, being physically vulnerable allowed some participants to share the deep, dark crannies of their personalities, in addition to flashing their naughty bits. And to be honest, the TV experiment worked: the series boasts one wedding (so far) and several serious relationships — which is a better success ratio than any TV dating show I can think of. This season, TV’s favorite nude dating … Continue reading →

Dating Naked: the Lost Episode Recap

Of course, this episode isn’t really lost. This is the show’s pilot, something that was created by the producers to serve as a sales vehicle to VH1. I have seen images of the pilot since this summer when VH1 first contacted me about covering the show (I wrote an article for July’s Channel Guide Magazine, so I interviewed Amy Paffrath in May.) and I’ve been wondering if and when we’re going to meet the woman with the dark, curly hair and wondering if any of the couples clicked. I also have been wondering what changed between the pilot and the … Continue reading →

Naked body painting! Naked drum circle! And other things we saw at 'Dating Naked: The Wedding'
The first thing you notice when you peer tentatively into a serene botanic garden is a pair of wedding crashers doing cartwheels in the buff. “I heard there was a naked wedding,” one of them tells a guest, “and I was like, ‘I’m going to be there.’” Funny, you thought the same thing when VH1 announced that Dating Naked—the only show on TV that features love-seeking singles (and/or one-night grandstanders) throwing caution and clothing to the wind—would film the nude nuptials of two contestants. You read that right: a brave couple were going to exchange vows

Zoe Bell Becomes Gator Bait in Freshwater

Zoe Bell’s made a career kicking ass in the movies. Judging by the premise of her new nature gone amok thriller Freshwater, it sounds like she better be ready to add alligator wrestling to her impressive array of fighting skills.
