The View: Celebrity Wife Swap
A new season of Celebrity Wife Swap is about to kick off. In the show’s season premiere, mother of eight Kate Gosselin is trading lives with Kendra Wilkinson, causing culture shock all around. Gosselin was on The View to talk about the “rude awakening” of the experience.

Gosselin chalked up the compliments about her figure to her busy life managing eight children. As for how she got mixed up in Celebrity Wife Swap despite not having a spouse, that is a great question. Maybe they should change the name to Celebrity Life Swap?
She said that the producers seemed to watch to tweak the format, and didn’t mind that she is no longer married. Busy single mom Gosselin traded lives with Wilkinson, who has a husband, as well as a nanny and maid for just one child.

How did Kendra do juggling eight kids instead of one? Gosselin said it was hard for her to get used to having just one child, which has never happened in her life. She said it was strange for her to think about what she wanted to do and how she wanted to spend her time.
Guest co-host Brooke Shields said that it was interesting to compare the differing lifestyles in the episode, noting that a household with eight children has to be more regimented by necessity. However, Wilkinson’s one child has a much freer schedule.

“We both came away learning something,” Gosselin said of her time on the show. She has learned that sometimes you can let go and be spontaneous.
Though she did not run this experience by her ex-husband Jon, she did talk about it with her children beforehand, and they were excited about the idea. But they agreed that they preferred to get back to their regular life with Kate.

Kate said that she would love to date someone like Hank Baskett, after spending a week with him. She said that it is hard to date when you are a single mom.
