ABC greenlights 'Celebrity Wife Swap'

Perhaps the “Wife Swap” well has begun to run a little dry, because ABC is upping the ante with a star-filled edition called "Celebrity Wife Swap."

According to Deadline, this version of the show will also ask its celebrity couples “to switch lifestyles for a week."

ABC has apparently ordered six episodes, with casting underway.

The network didn’t say who’s in consideration, although “SNL” alum Victoria Jackson - she of the "Glee" same-sex kiss bashing - might be one of them. Deadline reports that she tossed out a hint that she was approached for the program on her blog.

Time to play casting director: Which famous couples should do a “celebrity wife swap”?

    The regular 'Wife Swap' was bad enough. I can only imagine how the celebrity version will go? Heres an interesting swap out...Angelina Jolie swaps with Madonna? Id like to see that.
