Wife Swap (US)

Wife Swap (US)


Have you ever wondered whether the grass is greener on the other side of the fence? Two wives discover that it often isn't when they hand over the keys to their homes and literally switch families — but not bedrooms — for two weeks on the new reality show Wife Swap, already a critically-acclaimed smash hit in its third season in the U.K.

Wife Swap is not a competition or a contest. It is a reality show unlike any other, where the battlegrounds are the kitchens and living rooms, child-rearing is a subject of intense and heated debate, and the outcome isn't a cash prize, but a couple's opportunity to re-discover why they love each other and decided to marry in the first place.

In the first week of the swap, the wives move in with their new family and adopt their very different lifestyle. They agree to follow a manual written by the departing wife that sets out the rules of their new household – how they parent, shop, do the house work, manage their budgets and their social life. But then, in the second week, everything changes. The new wives take charge. They introduce their own set of rules and get to run the new household their way. It's a radical shock to both families. The results are explosive, enlightening and often very funny. This is a show about the things that really matter to families across America.

At the end of the show, the two couples meet for the first time. In a highly-charged exchange of views, both couples make a frank assessment of each other and talk about what they've learned from the experience.

I am 54 years old ,in all this time I have never felt I needed to write someone about anything. Why did the producer even think that this was entertanment! I cant believe you who produce this show would allow someone to treat another person with such rude comments. I could write a whole book on what Fowler should know about manners. Now I know it seems she was out of her element,but why was he so rude. He could have maybe made an effort to show her a different way to live. Because of this shows disregard for people on this show I choose from now on not to watch it ever again. I also plan to boycott the products you reprsent ! One thing more , I was always told that people that have to tell people they are smart have some self esteem problems. Read more

Can I tell you how much this episode pissed me off ????
The British guy ( Fowler ) was so rude to the woman that I wanted to reach through the television a choke him ! I cant believe someone can be so rude and condescending as he was. I hope the town that he lives in recognizes him and makes his life miserable as he made that woman who spent the two weeks with him ( after he forced her to move into a motel room ) Rude Asss WHOLE !
