Kate Gosselin and Kendra Wilkinson are switching places in the season premiere of ABC’s “Celebrity Wife Swap.”
The episode, to air on February 26, will send Gosselin to stay with Wilkinson’s husband, Hank Baskett, and 3-year-old son, while the former “Girls Next Door” star cares for Gosselin’s eight children solo.
Executive producer Bruce Toms told the New York Post that he’s been on the lookout for someone to cast opposite Gosselin, and the kids she shares with ex-husband Jon, for some time.
“We had to find a real great contrast,” Toms said. “They’re both beautiful young women, with very different ways of raising their kids.”
“Kate is very structured, a very controlling person," he added. “Kendra just does not live that way.”
