Scoop: CELEBRITY WIFE SWAP on ABC - Saturday, March 16, 2013 "Kate Gosselin / Kendra Wilkinson" -- Reality TV mom Kate Gosselin ("Kate Plus 8") and former Playboy Magazine cover girl Kendra Wilkinson (ABC's "Splash") will trade lives for one week on ABC's hit reality series, "Wife Swap," SATURDAY, MARCH 16 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (Rebroadcast. OAD: 2/26/13)

In the series, two mothers of celebrity families, each with opposing values, trade households, lifestyles and children (but not bedrooms) in a week-long challenge. In the first part of the exchange, each mom moves into the other's home and agrees to follow a manual of "household rules" written by the departing mother, including how to parent, manage their social life, do house work, unwind and more. Everything changes in the second half of the week, when "new mommy" takes charge, introduces her own set of rules and runs the "nest" her way. At the end of the week the two couples meet for the first time. In a raw, honest and highly-charged exchange of views, the couples will make frank assessments of each other and discuss their experiences, having had a very real taste of what life would be like in someone else's family.

Reality TV mom Kate Gosselin lives with her eight children in rural Pennsylvania. As a single mother raising twin Girls Cara and Mady (12) and eight-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel, Kate lives by a rigid set of home rules. She cooks, cleans and shops, all while working to support her family.

Kendra Wilkinson, perhaps best known as a Playboy Magazine cover girl and Hugh Hefner's former girlfriend, resides in Los Angeles with former-NFL husband Hank and their four-year-old son, Hank IV, aka "Little Hank." Kendra and Hank have a very relaxed parenting Style in which they allow "Little Hank" the freedom to learn and grow without any harsh guidelines. Hank is a supportive husband who pampers his wife by cooking for her, helping out around the house and planning "girls' nights out" for Kendra and friends. The family also has a full-time housekeeper/nanny, Rosa, who runs the household so that Kendra can relax during the day and enjoy her free time.

When Kate touches down in Los Angeles, she tries to get used to relaxing -- an entirely new concept to this working mom of eight. Meanwhile Kendra struggles, plunging head-first into the chaos of caring for eight kids. It's a comic turn of events as Kendra tries to put all the kids to bed while Kate is treated to a girls' night out. As the week progresses, Kendra continues to juggle all of her new responsibilities while Kate relishes her "me" time, far away from household chores and obligations.

"Celebrity Wife Swap" is produced by Zodiak USA. Natalka Znak, Claire O'Donohoe and Bruce Toms serve as executive producers. The series is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HD format, with 5.1-channel sound. This program carries a TV-PG parental guideline.
