ABC may have outdone themselves with the casting of this upcoming episode of
Celebrity Wife Swap,” which returns with a new season on February 26.

Wildly different reality stars Kendra Wilkinson and Kate Gosselin are the famous faces trading places on the season premiere of “Celebrity Wife Swap,” ABC announced Wednesday.

Former Playmate Kendra is the fun-loving, booty-shakin’ footballer’s wife and mother of one (who’s also competing on ABC’s upcoming celebrity diving show “Splash“).

Former TLC star Kate is an intense, Type-A personality and divorced single mother of eight children (who’s finally getting her wish to be back on reality TV, even if for only one episode).

Who do you feel more sorry for? Kendra’s hubby Hank Bassett, who will have to deal with the former Mrs. Gosselin who famously nagged her husband to tears, or Kendra, who will have to single-handedly manage Gosselin’s pack of sextuplets and pair of twins???

Well, these polar opposites have at least two things in common: Both ladies took a spin on “Dancing with the Stars” and they both penned best-selling books.

The season premiere of “Celebrity Wife Swap” airs Tuesday, February 26 at 8/7c on ABC, bumping back the reality cooking competition “The Taste” an hour, airing at 9/8c that night. The series premiere of “Splash” debuts Tuesday, March 19 at 8/7c on ABC.

The celebrity version of the ABC series “Wife Swap” follows two celebrity families “with very different values as they swap lifestyles, children and homes (but not bedrooms), for one week and embark on a journey like no other. They’re given the chance to see how another celebrity raises their children and deals with life in the spotlight, while allowing both couples the opportunity to re-discover why they love each other and why they decided to get together in the first place.”
