This will go down as the worst and best idea I have ever heard. Unsatisfied with the general despicable level that reality television has fallen to of late, an upcoming episode of Celebrity Wife Swap will feature Kendra Wilkinson and Kate Gosselin. Yeah let me slow that down for you for a second — Kendra Wilkinson, former Playboy bunny, girlfriend of Hugh Hefner, and star of Girls Next Door and current wife and mother of one will switch places with Kate Gosselin, former wife of Jon Gosselin and star of Jon and Kate Plus 8 and Kate Plus 8 and current mother of EIGHT CHILDREN.
First of all, are you still allowed to call it a wife swap if one of the swappees isn’t actually anyone’s wife? (As a related question, are you still allowed to call these women ‘celebrities’ when neither one has done anything more impressive than airing their business on a reality television show?) But how is this a fair trade? Kendra Wilkinson is literally going to shut herself inside a Diaper Genie and laugh herself to death. Which is a dangerous thing to put on television, because her laugh is annoying enough that it may cause the death of multiple viewers as well.
But Kendra has one child. ONE. And his name is Hank Baskett IV, just one number higher than her husband, Hank Baskett III. So she can technically treat her husband and her three-year old as one person. When she wants them to come to dinner all she has to do is shout ‘HANK’ and here they’ll come scampering. It’s as easy as pie. And all of a sudden she’s gonna be in charge of two twelve-year olds and SIX eight year olds? With different names? Are you kidding? They should make this episode a crossover with Nanny Immediately 911 4Ever or something just to ensure that Cara, Mady, Aaden, Collin, Joel, Leah, Alexis and Hannah (phew) get out of there without any fatal wounds or errant bunny tails stuck on them. It makes me tired just thinking about it. Which I guess is reality TV at its finest, so well played, NBC.
