I’ll admit, “Wife Swap” used to be one of my favorite shows like five years ago, but I’m a little iffy on resurrecting the show with celebrity families. ABC is planning to premiere a “Celebrity Wife Swap” series in January featuring the following couples (Brace):
- Gary Busey and evangelical pastor Ted Haggard
- ‘Growing Pains’ star Tracey Gold and Wilson Phillips singer Carnie Wilson
- Flavor Flav and Twisted Sister star Dee Snider
- Pro wrestler Mick Foley and actor Antonio Sabato Jr.
- Niecy Nash and ‘Family Ties’ actress Tina Yothers
Yes, Flava Flav. I didn’t even know he was married. Like the normal people version, wives in the two celebrity families will switch lives for two weeks. During the first week, the women must follow the rules of their host family, but during the second week the visiting wives will be in charge.
No specific airdates have been announced, but the series will debut Jan. 3 at 9pm on ABC. Will you tune in?
