The Families of Daniel Baldwin & Jermaine Jackson Will be Featured in the Premiere Episode of “Celebrity Wife Swap”
Encores of “Resurrection” Will Air Tuesdays at 10:00 p.m. For The Next Two Weeks, on April 1st & 8th
“Celebrity Wife Swap” will make its season three debut on TUESDAY, APRIL 15 at 10:00 p.m. ET, on the ABC Television Network. In the premiere episode, two Hollywood dynasties come together for the 1st time when the partners of actor Daniel Baldwin & music legend Jermaine Jackson swap lives for one week.
Encores of “Resurrection” will air on Tuesdays at 10:00 p.m. for the next two weeks, on April 1 & 8, until “Celebrity Wife Swap” premieres in in that timeslot on April 15.
In the season debut, actor Daniel Baldwin’s former girlfriend, Isabella Hofmann, lives in the Hollywood Hills with their autistic son Atticus (17). After struggling for a decade with drug addiction, Daniel is now sober & working on rebuilding his relationship with both Isabella & Atticus. Meanwhile, in Calabasas, CA, music legend Jermaine Jackson & his wife, Halima, live a privileged life with their prized show dog, Fiji.
These families may be in consideration Hollywood royalty, yet in that is where their similarities end. At the Baldwin/Hofmann home, Isabella is solely responsible for the day-to-day running of her home, while Halima does not worry about cooking & cleaning & domestic responsibilities. When Isabella arrives at the Jackson home, she is blown away by the glitz & glamour as well as the racks & racks of clothing, endless pairs of shoes & infinite bottles of cologne. Meanwhile, Halima experiences a shock of her own when she sees her swap home’s modest size, compared to her own grand estate. Throughout the week, each of the women experience what it’s like to live in each other’s shoes: in addition to managing hectic schedules, scrubbing their own pots & pans & even cleaning up after messy, indulgent dinners. When the time comes, the two women gladly welcome the rules change, yet not everyone else is so willing. In the end, one side of the swap is left in an embarrassing & uncomfortable situation when the celebrity husband holds firm & resists any change.
“Celebrity Wife Swap” finds two women of celebrity families, each with opposing values, who trade households, lifestyles & children (but not bedrooms) in a week-long challenge. In the 1st part of the exchange, each woman moves in to the other’s home & agrees to follow a manual of “household rules” written by the departing woman including: how to parent, manage their social life, do house work, unwind & more. Everything changes in the 2nd half of the week when the swap participants take charge & introduce their own set of new rules & run the “nest” their way.
At the end of the week, the two couples reunite & come together for the 1st time. In a raw, honest & highly-charged exchange of views, they make frank assessments of one another’s lifestyle & discuss their experiences. Throughout the process they will discover what life would be like in the shoes of another celebrity family.
“Celebrity Wife Swap” is produced by Zodiak Los Angeles. Tony Yates & Bruce Toms serve as executive producers. It is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC’s selected HD format, with 5.1-channel sound. A TV parental guideline will be assigned closer to airdate.
