Design on a Dime Host

Gets XXXtreme Makeover

7/3/2008 1:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has finally uncovered the connection between the HGTV show "Design on a Dime" and hardcore pornography -- a host who really enjoys interiors.


While the network continues to regularly air episodes featuring former host Lee Snijders, we've learned the guy who helped homeowners for more than six years is still giving advice to couples -- but purely of the girl-on-girl variety nowadays.

Snijders used the cash he raked in from "DoaD" and his stint as a Disney Imagineer to start his own porn company with porn star girlfriend Jett Angel. You can even catch Lee in several of the reality-style skin flicks manning the camera (or so we've heard).

Calls to HGTV were not returned.

Hey, I've personally known Lee since junior high school and he is not gay or sleazy. He's really a great guy. How he makes his money is his own business. I don't really care for the porn industry either but I will not judge him by that realm. As another commentor said, "it's legal" so why not judge the people who make porn legal not the ones who make the money from it. Everyone has limits to what they can tolerate and his porn photography really doesn't have anything IN THE LEAST to do with his stint on Design on a Dime. What a bunch of prudies!! Grow up and stop passing judgment on everyone else. He's doing what he wants in order to keep a job and make money.

Hey, let's just hope he's a better pornographer than designer.

I CAN NOT UNDERSTAND HOW PEOPLE CAN BE SO PRUDE. PEOPLE TODAY ARE DOING EVERYTHING AND MOST UNDERSTAND THAT NO MATTER WHAT, YOU DO NOT LOOSE WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED. LEE IS STILL A TOP DESIGNER. ALWAYS WILL BE. WHAT IS MOST UNFORUNATE IS THAT PEOPLE DO NOT SEE THROUGH PORN WHEN TOLD NOT DO. ALL THE HOLLIER THAN THOU PEOPLE SHOULD LOOK IN THEIR OWN CLOSET.. DO NOT BE SURPRISED WHAT YOU FIND. YOU JUST DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS THERE. WHAT IS SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY HIDING?. DO YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO CRITIZE OTHERS WHEN YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS IN YOUR CLOSET??
IT IS A SHAME THAT LEE CANNOT DO BOTH JOBS; BUT AGAIN THE HOLY ROLLERS WILL ALWAYS BE THERE TO PROTEST AND CAUSE A SCENE AND EMBARASS NOT ONLY THEMSELVES BUT LEE AND HIS CREW.

He's got some really ****ed up hair...It's sad when middle-aged men take extreme measures to be hip.

Both Lee and Jett are ARTISTS - he is merely channeling that talent into something....well, different. To say that you refuse to watch his episodes now on DOD is simply ludicrous! Your loss....Oh! And I guarantee, the sets for his films must be FABULOUS!
