Flavor Flav, Dee Snider to swap wives

Now that ABC has given "Celebrity Wife Swap" the green light, Entertainment Weekly reports that the midseason reality show is filling out its cast.

Among the "Wife Swap" contenders are none other than aging music stars and reality show vets Flavor Flav and Dee Snider. The two will reportedly swap spouses in an as-yet-unscheduled episode of the spinoff series.

Snider and Suzette, his wife of 30 years, have four kids together, and Flav asked for his current wife Liz's hand in marriage during a 2008 reunion episode of "Flavor of Love."

"Celebrity Wife Swap" is exactly what it sounds like - a Hollywood spin on the network's "Wife Swap" series, which has participants "switch lifestyles for a week." Back in May it was reported that ABC had ordered six episodes of the show and that casting was underway.

Who else would you want to see trade lives on TV?

    It is not the (lack of) class of the cast, but lack of class for ABC, the producers, and those who will even watch this crap, welcome to "America of the brain dead", now that would be a real reality show

The so called "reality television" idea has been blown so far out of proportion that all it takes now to get a show is whether or not youll have T&A, car crashes, fighting, or someone off a Jerry Springer episode to make people laugh thier collective asses off , and youll collect a check... good thing theres the internet, or wed have nothing intelligent to turn to huh?
