Holy shit, you guys: Tuesday nights are about to get bonkers. The couples partaking in the first-ever season of Celebrity Wife Swap have been announced, and the stars who have enlisted are like gold mine. A few of the participants may have been expected (at this point, what reality show hasn't Gary Busey been on?). But just imagine the home lives of Tina Yothers and Tracey Gold! Will their real families be anything like the TV families they grew up with on Family Ties and Growing Pains? I sure hope so.
For those who've managed to avoid watching the original show on lonely Friday nights, the premise is as follows: Mom #1 moves into Mom #2's home and Mom #2 moves into Mom #1's home. They must learn to live with the new family, and impose the rules of their own home. Each family learns a lesson about the beauty in or stupidity of imposing curfews, TV-restrictions, dietary changes, and punishments. It almost never really works out. he full swapping schedule, below:
• Mick Foley and Antonio Sabato Jr.
• Niecy Nash and Tina Yothers (Family Ties)
• Flavor Flav and Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider
• Tracey Gold (Growing Pains) and Carnie Wilson
• Gary Busey and Ted Haggard
That's right! Gary Busey will be put in charge of evangelical pastor Ted Haggard's children — and vice versa. Expect nothing less than a complete and utter disaster. The show kicks off on January 3rd.
