‘Celebrity Wife Swap’ — The Show Replacing ‘Happy Endings’ — Features Kate Gosselin & Kendra Wilkinson

Earlier today we brought you the less-than-spectacular news that ABC had bumped Happy Endings from Tuesday to Friday, and would begin airing double shots of the show from 8 to 9. Now, sure, shows with small, rabid fanbases have survived on Friday nights lately (Supernatural, Fringe), but dumping them in two at a time makes that logic feel a little like George telling Lennie about a farm filled with rabbits before depositing a bullet in the back of his head. No bueno. And when we explained all this, we also told you that ABC would be filling the now-open time slot with a reality show called Celebrity Wife Swap.

Hey, why don’t we check in with Celebrity Wife Swap to see what they have lined up for their upcoming season. I mean, maybe it won’t be that bad, right?

Who got the better deal? Kate Gosselin and Kendra Wilkinson have agreed to trade lives for a new episode of Celebrity Wife Swap.


ABC announced Wednesday, Feb. 13 that Gosselin, 37, and Wilkinson, 27, will be the first stars to appear on the new season of the reality series on Feb. 26. On Celebrity Wife Swap, stars switch lifestyles, children and homes for one week to experience another celebrity’s life.


Gosselin will get to stay with Wilkinson’s husband, former NFL wide receiver Hank Baskett, and their son Hank, 3, while Wilkinson will become a single mother of eight kids (twins Cara and Mady, 12, and sextuplets Aaden, Collin, Joel, Leah, Alexis and Hannah, 8), whom Gosselin shares with ex-husband Jon.

In summation, ABC put Happy Endings on an iceberg and pushed it out to sea so they could fill its spot in the schedule with an hour of Kate Gosselin berating former Philadelpia Eagle Hank Baskett and Kendra Wilkinson trying to raise eight children by herself. KENDRA WILKINSON. EIGHT KIDS. WHO, TO THIS POINT, HAVE BEEN RAISED BY KATE AND JON GOSSELIN. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?

The whole thing is honestly going to give me a stroke if I don’t stop thinking about it, so I’m just going to watch this video on loop for the rest of the day instead. See you tomorrow.
