It was a Celebrity Wife Swap that will go down in history.
For the show’s season premiere episode on Feb. 26, Kate Gosselin and Kendra Wilkinson, swapped lives for what turned out to be a drama-filled switch that left both women agreeing that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.
While the former Kate Plus 8 star butted heads with the centerfold’s hubby, former NFL player Hank Baskett, Kendra had quite a rude awakening caring for Kate's kids. The married 27-year-old is mom to one child, Hank Jr. versus Kate, who is a single mother of eight.
Unlike her typical week, caring for Kendra's child was more like a vacation for Kate, who leisurely sipped on cocktails and made use of the man around the house. As for Kendra, who normally has help from Hank and the family nanny, Rosa, the former Playboy centerfold struggled to manage eight kids on her own.NE

After their week was over, the ladies met up at the show's roundtable to talk about what they learned… and that’s when Kate didn't hold back her brutal honesty.
“Imagine my surprise when I arrived at your house and discovered you have one child. It was a very unique experience to sort of do nothing," Kate said to Kendra. “You let everybody else do everything because you don’t care. Between [Hank] and Rosa, they do everything, so essentially it enables you to do nothing.”
Cue the tears.
After a long seven days, Kendra broke down and agreed that she needs to take some responsibility off of her husband and the nanny, then admitting, “Kate has empowered me. I need to dedicate more time with little Hank.”
While Kate admitted she finally understood the value of unwinding every once in a while and taking time for herself when needed, the most powerful lesson was learned by Kendra: Don’t mess with Kate Gosselin.
