ABC Is Making Celebrity Wife Swap

Tabloids are never shy about telling us when stars cheat, but at least this time, the extramarital activities will be sanctioned: Prepare yourself for ABC's brand-new, celebrity version of Wife Swap, which will find semi-famous women swapping husbands and families for a week (including, potentially, Saturday Night Live performer turned right-wing pundit Victoria Jackson, who claims she's been approached for the show). The network has ordered six episodes of the new Swap, but you may want to keep your expectations in check — though it would be fun to swap, say, liberal firebrand Susan Sarandon with outspoken conservative Patricia Heaton, we have a feeling that the caliber of celebrity approached will result in swaps between a Playboy Playmate you haven't heard of and whoever might be married to celeb-reality veteran Jeff Conaway at the time.
