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.” Keep reading »

Ted Haggard Coming To A Television Near You

In 2006, Ted Haggard was one of the most powerful ministers in the United States—he was the head of the enormous New Life Church in Colorado and the leader of the National Association of Evangelicals, which boasted 30 million members. And then, in a major sex scandal, a male prostitute outed Haggard, saying that not only had Haggard paid him for sex, but that he had bought and done crystal meth.

Women In Denial: Oprah Sits Down With Denise Richards & Mrs. Ted Haggard


Yesterday’s episode of “Oprah” could have been subtitled “Women In Denial.” The talk show queen first sat down with Denise Richards, who spilled, oh, half the beans about her ex-husband, Charlie Sheen. Sheen was arrested on Christmas for allegedly assaulting his current wife, Brooke Mueller. Richards said Sheen called her from jail so he could wish their two kids Merry Christmas (Aww! Not.), but claims she didn’t inquire as to why he was in the pokey. Maybe because she could easily guess? Richards accused Sheen of being abusive during their very bitter divorce battle and even claimed she feared for her life. Richards told Oprah that Sheen was verbally abusive but that he never hit her, though she does admit he had pushed her — which qualifies as physical abuse in my book. While Richards was revealing more details than we’d known previously about their relationship, she still seemed weirdly … defensive of him, despite acknowledging that he has an obvious and reoccurring problem, one that he has continually denied inflicting upon her or Mueller. Even Richards’ father, who was in the audience, seemed frustrated that his daughter continues to “go back” to Sheen. Check out a clip of the interview above. Keep reading »
