It’s going to be hard to top the onslaught of lunacy that Celebrity Wife Swap contestants Ted Haggard and Gary Busey and their respective significant others brought to the table during last night’s absolutely bonkers episode. No one brings the crazy quite like Busey. While Flavor Flav and Dee Snider will do their best to protect the sanctity of marriage and reality television during next week’s episode (though Snider should try and save up some of that energy for his upcoming stint on The Celebrity Apprentice… just ask Busey), there’s plenty of other stars who would make for an hour of baffling, albeit undeniably entertaining, television.
Of course, there’s the wish list of celebrities who would rightfully, understandably never participate in this bizarre, desperate social experiment (Jay-Z and Beyoncé, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, Kate Middleton and Prince William, Bert and Ernie), but there’s the, well, lower echelon of stars we can envision making an appearance on the ABC series. Here are some dream pairings:
- LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian with Nancy Grace and David Linch. Everyone’s got an opinion on LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian, but no one has more opinions about anything in the world than Nancy Grace.
- Jenny Mollen and Jason Biggs with Kirk Cameron and Chelsea Noble. Oversharers Mollen and Biggs could make even the most adventurous couples squirm, so imagine how the über-religious former Growing Pains stars would react around the American Pie guy.
- Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchinson with anyone else on the planet. The horror! But, oh, would it make for some exquisitely uncomfortable television. Especially when Courtney starts making this face at someone’s poor husband and then takes their kids to a pumpkin patch.
