Did you get a chance to watch ABC’s Celebrity Wife Swap last night?
Remember the original wife swap? I do. It wasn’t exactly the first show I would choose to watch, but it provided some great entertainment – especially while watching everyone squirm at the changes each new mom’s bring to the household. And some how, our own lives seem that much better. Isn’t that a nice feeling?
But, now we have Celebrity Wife Swap. And the brand new show premieres tonight, featuring Gayle Haggard, wife of (former) TV evangelist (you know the one, he got accused in 2006 of paying for sex…with a male masseuse…and using crystal meth), who will be swapping with wife of ever controversial actor Gary Busey.
So with that said, what do you take when you add religion, controversy, and television?
You have Celebrity Wife Swap, or at least the premiere episode that is. Gary Busey’s family is not into organized religion, so the conversations that go down for this episode, should be…well, interesting.
ABC provided viewers with an awesome sneak peak of the new show featuring Carnie Wilson and Tracey Gold trading places. And at the end of the episode, we’re all left with a wonderful, warm and cozy feeling inside that Celebrity lives are just as messed up as ours. Carnie Wilson is left shocked at the order of Tracey Gold’s house, and Tracey Gold can’t help but notice the absence of Carnie’s husband.
Aside from the controversy of celebrities switching lives, we get a peak into the dysfunction that inside of every celebrity relationship. So, who would you like to see exposed on reality television? Here’s my top couples I would love to see swapped with another:
1) Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
With as many kids as that couple has, you know that house has to be chaotic. And although neither couple needs their celebrity status boosted in either way, I’m sure all of us would be dying to see how the two actually relate on a day to day basis.
2) Beyonce and Jay-Z
With Beyonce with a new baby on the way, and both of them being very popular in the music business, I can’t help but be curious about this couples dysfunctional moments. They seem so…happy. How weird is that?
3) Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
I don’t know about you, but it’s the “cool” Hollywood couples I’m most interested in seeing under the spotlight. I mean really, come on, how many of us really care about a bunch of D-list celebrity lives? That’s what we have Dancing with the Stars for. We want to know the juice on the real celebrities we all know and love (or hate). So, with that said, let’s put Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes in the spotlight…see how there supposedly outstanding relationship fairs.
4) Ben Stiller & Christine Taylor
Okay, to be honest, I didn’t even know that this couple was even married. How weird is that? But, really, I think it’s too cool that they are together, and would love to see their relationship live and in action.
5) Britney Spears and Jason Trawick
Okay, aside from the fact that we all sort of groaned at the news of Britney getting married (not judging you girl; just saying you don’t have the best history), I can’t help but wonder what it would be like for Britney Spears to be swapping with another wife, and what fresh, new dynamics would appear as part of this couple’s relationship.
Alright, TV Watchers, tune in tonight to catch Celebrity Wife Swap, tonight on ABC, 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
Who do you hope to see under the spotlight?
