Kendra Wilkinson and Kate Gosselin are switching lives in a celebrity episode of Wife Swap.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the former Playboy bunny and the reality starlet are slated to take on each other's lives in ABC's Celebrity Wife Swap.
Wilkinson, who has one child with husband Hank Baskett, will take on Gosselin’s eight children in the episode.
Executive producer Bruce Toms tells the New York Post, “Kate is very structured, a very controlling person. Kendra just does not live that way. Kate wakes up every morning and bakes fresh bread for her family.”
He adds, “Kendra didn’t even know what a breadmaker was. It was up to Kendra to follow Kate’s rules.”
The two live completely different lives. Kendra has live-in help while the divorced reality starlet tends to her 12-year-old twins and 8-year-old sextuplets on her own.
“They’re both beautiful young women, with very different ways of raising their kids,” Toms explains.
Radar Online claims that Gosslin’s children were “traumatized” from their experience with Kendra. Author Robert Hoffman explains, “Gosselin children were scared and very confused, having no idea who their new mom-for-a-week was, or why they were left alone with her to be filmed by strangers.”
Post notes that the two women remain friends and their families keep in touch.
Celebrity Wife Swap premieres February 26 on ABC.
