Kate and Kendra are trading lives

Mama Gosselin and former 'Girl Next Door' to appear on 'Celebrity Wife Swap'

By Kenny Herzog Feb 14, 2013 12:07PM

Just when it seemed scripted comedies were making a comeback, leveling the playing field with network reality series, ABC has jostled "Happy Endings" over to Friday evenings to make a space for the new season of "Celebrity Wife Swap." 
Not that this is all bad. At least not when Kate Gosselin and Kendra Wilkinson are among the misfit duos living in each other's shoes for one week. And we don't even have to wait much longer for this spectacular sideshow to hit airwaves, as it airs less than two weeks from now on Feb. 26. 

For Gosselin, the experience will amount to a relative resort stay, as she'll co-exist with Kendra's hunky NFL hubby Hank Baskett and their 3-year-old son, Hank Jr. It's Wilkinson who gets the rawer deal, tasked with minding single-mom Kate's eight rugrats, who vary in age from 8 to 12. Yeah. Good luck with alllllll that. 

Kate and Kendra's episode of "Celebrity Wife Swap" will air Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

In order to make this 'an even playing field'.... hope Kendra gets all the nannies support and money needed to watch the 8 kids just as miss Kate does. But we all know that won't happen or it wouldn't be 'good for TV'.  ugh.

Poor bullied Kate. Seems there's nothing she won't do to stay in the limelight. In other matters, I watched Idiocracy the other day. Coincidence?

Never watched the show, certainly will not watch now.  Is there anything Kate Gosselin won't pander her family to to keep herself in the spotlight?  Hope Kendra and husband have a solid marriage.  One week with America''s most unfit mother could rock any family and for Kendra, one week with the super undisciplined, badly brought up, entitled Gosselin brats could turn anyone off from motherhood.

Same here... she is not a wife after all but my guess is that the the show producers is so desperate for ratings that they will try anything.  I for one have never gotten into this whole idea of reality shows and actually will be doing away with television/cable within 7-10 days.  After all I previously did away with television for 10 years so not like I will miss not watching anything.

ABC would do good to reconsider even the thought of this. First of all as someone else already said you have to be a wife first before you should appear on a show called wife swap. Second of all people are sick to death of Kate Gosselin. She used to be a nurse so she should go back to working in the health care field and stay out of the public eye. Not good for her, not good for her children or any other children for that matter. I will not be watching.
leave it to wannabe kate to ruin the show...  poor poor hank... he should say no way

Don't you have to be married to be considered a wife? Why am I commenting on a Kate Gosselin article?
