Celebrity Wife Swap RECAP 3/5/13: Coolio and Mark McGrath Swap Lives


Tonight on ABC Celebrity Wife Swap returns again for a whole new episode.  On tonight’s show Rapper Coolio and Rockstar Mark McGrath Swap Lives.  Did you watch last week’s episode when Kate Gosselin and Kendra Wilkinson swapped lives?  We did and we recapped it here for you.

On last week’s show Kate Gosselin and Kendra Wilkinson swapped places in a week-long challenge.  Kate Gosselin is was living with her eight children in rural Pennsylvania. As a single mother raising twin girls Cara and Mady (12) and eight-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel, Kate lives by a rigid set of home rules. She cooks, cleans and shops, all while working to support her family.  Kendra Wilkinson, perhaps best known as a Playboy Magazine cover girl and Hugh Hefner’s former girlfriend, resides in Los Angeles with former-NFL husband Hank and their four-year-old son, Hank IV, aka “Little Hank.” Kendra and Hank have a very relaxed parenting style in which they allow “Little Hank” the freedom to learn and grow without any harsh guidelines.  It was a crazy episode.

On tonight’s show

Mark McGrath, who is perhaps best known as the front man of the ’90s rock band Sugar Ray, and his wife, Carin, are parents to two-year-old twins Lydon and Hartley.
When self-sufficient Mimi arrives in Los Angeles, CA to swap lives with Carin, she is surprised to see a maid, a nanny and Carin’s parents — who live with them full time. Mimi is flabbergasted when she sees how the twins have complete control over the household. She also zeroes in on Mark’s “helicopter parenting” and thinks that his hovering over everyone’s interaction with the twins is a problem.
It’s a far cry from the standoffish behavior Coolio displays when Carin arrives: Sleeping the day away and hanging out with his friends, he spends little time at home with the kids or helping with the household duties. And when it comes time to implement her own set of house rules, Mimi discovers that Coolio is less than quick to accept her terms.

We will be covering tonight’s Celebrity Wife Swap, Coolio and Mark McGrath episode with all the details. You don’t want to miss it!  Don’t forget to come back to this spot at 8PM for our coverage of the episode.
