Early Life and Career Beginnings
Paige is of Puerto Rican and African-American descent, with her mother hailing from Puerto Rico. Her parents are very close to rapper DMX, who is her godfather. While little is known as to how she developed an interest in acting, she began her career in 2000, appearing as a guest in several popular television shows including “Felicity’, “George Lopez”, “The Division”, and “Boomtown”.
She also had several film projects including 2003’s “Cradle 2 the Grave”, an action film starring DMX and Jet Li. During the same year, she made an appearance in “The Cat and the Hat”, which is based on the Dr. Seuss book of the same name, and starred Mike Myers, Dakota Fanning and Alec Baldwin. In 2005, she was cast in one of her first notable roles in “Beauty Shop”, which is a comedy film spin-off of the “Barbershop” film franchise, and starring Queen Latifah who first appeared in “Barbershop 2: Back in Business”.

Her popularity increased significantly in 2006 when she was cast as Tasha in the series “Everybody Hates Chris”. The sitcom is set during the 1980s, and is based on the teenage experiences of actor and comedian Chris Rock. The show’s title is a parody of another popular sitcom “Everybody Loves Raymond”. In 2008 during the fourth season of the show, it was moved to what was considered the Friday night death slot which, usually denoting that shows in that slot are slated for cancellation. The move proved true and Rock also announced that the fourth season coincided with his own past, as he dropped out of high school to become a comedian, so it was time to end the show.
