Kendra Wilkinson & Kate Gosselin Switch on ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’ & We Know Who Got the Better Deal

OMG 19

kate gosselinI'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?

Maybe just maybe Kate will get a new TV gig out of this and can stop blogging.  Her 1500+ word spiels on the most absolute basic of all things in life are horrendous and yell "I'M A NARCISSITIC CONTROL FREAK LIAR WHO IS TRYING SO HARD TO CONTINUE TO BE RELEVANT AS A QUASI CELEB".

I also disagree with who gets the best end of this deal, you watch, Kendra will be great with the 8 and they will have a blast and enjoy things beyond expectations.   I think this is Kendra's way of kicking her ex in the crotch and getting paid for it.

Definitely not the kids...Kendra's son gets to be watched by an admitted child abuser and the 8 are, once again, exploited for financial gain by the admitted child abuser. Don't forget, the kids' school is K-12, so the older girls will probably have peers w/ older siblings who know of Kendra's past. But hey, what's a little humiliation for the kids when Kate can get her mug back on Tv? She is a TERRIBLE mother.

I agree with CAP's first paragraph!  But I truly, truly feel sorry for Hank.  What did that poor guy do to deserve a week with Kate?

I'm sure the 8 will be happy for a parent capable of joy for a bit. One can only hope Kendra's little one doesn't try to hand Kate any food WITH HIS DISGUSTING, GROSS, FILTHY, BARE HAND!!!!

TECHNICALLY Kate isn't even a "wife" how'd she get this gig?

Darn tootin', I will most certainly be watching this! But I must agree say...if Ms. Gosselin is technically no longer a wife, how will this work? Will Kendra be co-parenting with their nanny?

Isn't Celebrity Wife Swap supposed to be about swapping wives? Kate is no longer married. Super confused as to why this switch is happening.

It is for one episode of this show. A couple of airheads swapping houses. Chill out, Kates kids probably had fun, change of routine. Anyone would think she was hosting the show.
