Joan Rivers and Bristol Palin to trade lives on 'Celebrity Wife Swap'

Rivers and Palin

I have a feeling that Joan Rivers is getting the bum deal out of this one. Rivers and former Alaska Governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol Palin, will be appearing together on the summer premiere of ABC’s ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’.

The swap will be a two-for-one deal, with Rivers and her daughter Melissa trading lives with Bristol Palin and her sister Willow Palin. The swap will have Rivers going north to Wasilla Alaska while the Palin sisters head to warmer climates in Los Angeles and Rivers’ home, which also serves as her television production office.

Valid question: How does this count as a “wife swap” if neither of the participants are married? Either ‘Wife Swap’ is getting desperate for celebrities willing to go on their show, or I don’t really understand how the show works exactly. Either way, it is a bit of a stretch to consider Bristol Palin and her sister as celebrities, and I think most people would have to agree with me on that one (and those who don’t likely are the same people that consider the cast of ‘Teen Mom’ to be celebrities). Other than being a contestant on ‘Dancing with the Stars’, Bristol’s only claim to fame is being Sarah Palin’s daughter.
