Kate Gosselin Trading Lives with Kendra? Seems Like an Uneven Swap to Us!

The single mom of eight swaps places with the married mom of one on Wife Swap. Will Kendra be able to handle it?

When celebrities sign on to do Wife Swap, they know they'll paired with someone who's their complete opposite. Still, we're guessing that ex-Playboy Playmate Kendra Wilkinson had a minor heart attack when she discovered she'd be swapping families with Kate Gosselin: a single mother of eight. Considering that Wilkinson is a married mother of one, we'd say it was a pretty uneven trade!

On Tuesday night's Celebrity Wife Swawp, we'll find out what happens when the former Girls Next Door star (who's married to NFL player Hank Baskett) and the former John and Kate Plus Eight star switch lives. During an appearance on The View this morning, Kate claimed that the stunt was as much of a shock to her system as it was to Kendra's.

"I have eight but I’ve never had one, so it was definitely very different," said Gosselin, who took care of Wilkinson's 3-year-old son Hank Baskett Jr. "And there was a lot of time to worry about what I was doing, what I wanted to do."

As for Kendra, it seemed she was less intimidated by the size of the Gosselin family (that would be two 12-year-olds and six 8-year-olds) than by Kate's extreme organizational skills. In a preview clip shown on The View, Hugh Hefner's ex marveled that Kate begins the day at exactly 6:03 a.m. ("Not 6:05, 6:03!")

In another clip, Kate complains about the "clutter" in Kendra's kitchen, which seems to consist of an iPod plugged into the wall. (Note to self: Never let Kate Gosselin come over.)

So, we're looking forward to seeing the shock on the two moms' faces when they realize whose house they're in. But we're also curious what the Gosselin twins and sextuplets are like, now that they're growing up. Has two years away from the spotlight mellowed them out? Is it even possible to be mellow if Kate Gosselin is your mom? Guess we'll find out...
