"Trading Spaces" Star Graces Women's Out Night

He's the hunky carpenter on the popular TLC show Trading Spaces. Carter Oosterhouse stole the show and many of the women's hearts at Women's Night Out at Tyler's Harvey Convention Center.

"We sent a card like this to Carter, saying, come by and visit our booth," said one representative at the Stampin' Up vendor booth.

After getting an autographed photo, one woman tried to downplay what she thought of Carter because she was afraid her husband might be watching.

"He's ok," Jessica Hogan, of Palestine, said. "I'd love to be on the show myself, actually."

Carter, who's from Michigan, says he's quite fond of Tyler: "It's very nice and cute. My mom actually said she wanted to get a house here."

Too bad he's not planning to move here. But maybe the beautiful women of East Texas will sway him.

"If you see me fading off at times, work with me, people, come on. I'm only a man. I'm only human," Carter said.

Carter wasn't the only man the women had their eyes on. Several local fitness trainers modeled swimsuits in a style show on the Pepsi stage.

"Too bad I'm married," Amanda Denfield, of Longview, said.

The night could not have ended without a nice massage and some free food. Even photojournalist Jason Hewes tried to take part.

But I had to tell him: "Hey, hey! This is Women's Night Out!"

A third of the proceeds from tonight's event will go to the East Texas Food Bank.
