TRACEY GOLD AND CARNIE WILSON THROW THEIR WEIGHT AROUND ON “CELEBRITY WIFE SWAP”
When we heard about the new ABC reality show Celebrity Wife Swap we wondered whether celebrities would actually embarrass themselves and cooperate, but obviously they will – for the right price. The premier episode on January 2, features two celebs with opposite eating disorders – Carnie Wilson (singer from Wilson Phillips) who battles obesity despite stomach stapling surgery, and “Growing Pains” actress Tracey Gold, an admitted anorexic. The three day “swap” reveals that Carnie is a casual housewife who doesn’t mind dirty dishes piling up. Tracey is portrayed as a neat freak who makes lists and runs a tight ship at home. Opposite marriages reveal the big differences in their husbands. Carnie ends up envying Tracey’s close and communicative marriage. We’re already hooked and plan to tune in.
