I'm not embarrassed to admit that I've seen more than a few episodes of Celebrity Wife Swap and have enjoyed the show, immensely. Usually they're with "celebrities" you've hardly heard of like some pro wrestlers and Antonio Sabato Jr., but ABC just announced the two stars that will kick off a new season of the reality show, and not only have you heard of these women, you also have strong opinions about them, making the potential for the show all the more entertaining. On February 26, Kate Gosselin will switch lives with Kendra Wilkinson. I know.
Kate's going to go live with Kendra's former NFL star husband Hank Baskett and their 3-year-old son, Hank. Kendra, on the other hand, is going to take a walk in Kate's shoes and become a single mom to 8-year-old sextuplets and 12-year-old twins.
Even, let's say, if Kate didn't want to do any more reality TV and wanted out of the spotlight, not even someone in that position could turn down this opportunity. Hello! It's going to be like a paid vacation for her. One toddler and one husband? It's gonna be a god damn breeze. I mean, I'm sure they'll try to create some drama -- Hank Sr. won't wash the dishes! The baby's Pull Ups are nowhere to be found in their messy closet! -- but please, it'll be a cake walk compared to what she's used to.
And poor Kendra. What a terrible trade she got. I wonder if she got news she was switching with Kate Gosselin and tried to burn down her house so that it'd be impossible to film. Sorry, ABC! Got no house with which to swap. Shrug!
The episode will air February 26 on ABC at 8:00 p.m. EST.
You gonna watch?
