Ted Haggard Will Be Swapping Wives With Gary Busey

Generally, we are completely underwhelmed by the “celebrities” who make it onto “Celebrity Wife Swap.” But I am pretty fascinated by the latest two who will be trading wives, and lives, for an upcoming episode of the show. Apparently, today Ted Haggard—the former pastor of New Life Church who was ousted when it was discovered that he frequented a male prostitute (for massages, y’all)—filmed an episode of the show. So whose wife did he get? Gary Busey’s. Yes, the actor and artist who was on “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.” It feels to me like both of these guys have a need to be in the spotlight. Ted Haggard was not only the preacher for a 10,000 member church, but since his scandal, this is the second time he’s brought his wife on a national television show to tell their story. In 2009, Ted and Gayle Haggard appeared on “Divorce Court,” talking to Judge Lynn about how they kept their marriage in tact through their strife. “This is part of Ted’s journey,” Gayle said at the time. “It’s made him a better man. I see what has happened as a divine rescue.” Ted has also echoed that statement doing interviews with Oprah, Rachel Maddow, and Larry King. And that’s in addition to his recent cameo in “The Waiting Game,” the pro-abstienence sex comedy.

Meanwhile, Gary followed up his run on “Celebrity Rehab” with a turn on “Celebrity Apprentice.”

What do you think—will you watch this episode?
