Celebrity Wife Swap Recap Season 1 Episode 4 Niecy Nash and Tina Yothers

Four episodes into Celebrity Wife Swap and I am guessing tonight there is going to be some drama.  Swamping tonight is Actress/comedienne Niecy Nash and actress, singer and nature-loving Tina Yonkers.  Niecy is a self-proclaimed diva while Tina a country mom will see if they can cope with each others lives.

Can city-girl Niecy trade her pampered life for the great outdoors?  Can Tina trade her country lifestyle for life in a stylish San Fernando Valley home?  We will find out tonight on Celebrity Wife Swap.

In “Celebrity Wife Swap,” two mothers from two celebrity families with very different kinds of households swap lifestyles and children (but not bedrooms) in a week-long challenge. In the first part of the swap, each mom moves into the other’s home and must adopt their new celebrity family’s lifestyle, no matter how different. She agrees to follow a manual written by the departing mother that sets out the rules of the household – how to parent, manage their social life, do house work, unwind and more. In the second half of the week, everything changes when the new moms take charge. They introduce their own set of rules and get to run the new household their way.

At the end of the week, the two couples will meet for the first time. In a deeply honest and highly-charged exchange of views, both couples will make a frank assessment of each other and talk about what they’ve learned from the experience. In the process, all will discover what it would be like to live a life radically different from their own.

We will be live blogging the episode tonight with all the up-to-the-minute laughs and drama.  So stop by at 9PM to this spot and refresh often!

RECAP: You would think we all had enough of Niecy Nash on Dancing with the Stars, but no, tonight we get another dose. Niecy first gives us an inside look at the village that it takes to make her a diva!

Tina Yothers gives us an inside look at her active lifestyle, her family loves the outdoors which is completely different from Niecy’s diva lifestyle.

Niecy arrives at Tina’s house wearing a hot pink boa and is surprised to see chickens outside the house. Both women start reading the handbooks that they left for each other – both are equally shocked at each other’s lifestyles.

Niecy doesn’t know if she can do it, she wanted to learn something from this experience, but not be a farm hand. Now it is time for the celebrity wives to meet their families, Niecy is first and when she meets little Bobby, she knows he is going to give her a run for her money. To Neicy’s dismay, the family doesn’t know who she is. First chore, she has to cook Bambi for the family and she has rarely cooked ever before, then her new husband tells her that they are going camping tomorrow!

Tina turns out to be more of a celebrity to Niecy’s family, at least they recognize who she is. Niecy’s mom is preparing dinner and Tina is surprised that the children take their meals up to their rooms. Tina follows the house rules, she brings her new husband his meal in his room. She goes to check on the kids and she finds it tough to break through their barriers.

It’s the second day of the swap, Tina is spending the morning with Niecy’s trainer, while Niecy’s first chore of the day is to collect eggs for breakfast. Even five year old Lilly sees that Niecy is not an outdoor person.

Tina is getting a day of pampering, when the stylist and makeup artist arrive, but it’s just not for her. After getting all pampered, she has a lunch date with Niecy’s best friends.

Back in Ontario, Niecy and the family is heading out for their camping trip and she is wondering why anyone would want to sleep on the ground when they don’t have to. They head out in the canoe and Niecy starts screaming for her ‘mama’ while Bob realizes she belongs on Rodeo drive with her credit cards. Niecy tries to chicken out and go to a hotel but the family pleads with her to stay with them. She picks up her cell phone and arranges a ride, she’s outta there. Bob is not upset that she is leaving, he thinks it will actually be more fun without her.

Tina is back at home after her lunch and everyone is busy doing their own thing, there is nobody for her to spend time with.

It’s the morning of the rule change. Tina is going to add more family time, while I have a feeling Niecy is going to add some glitter! Niecy announces to the family that instead of camping, she is going to add some glamming. Tina tells her celebrity family that she wants them to spend more time together, she also wants them to help their grandmother more.

One of Niecy’s rules is “Bobby Must Be Nice”, or she is getting a babysitter for him while the rest of the family go out for a fancy dinner and a red carpet experience.

Tina gets Jay out of the office for lunch, outside and she gives him a lecture on spending more time with his kids.

Meanwhile, Bobby’s behaviour is spiralling out of control, he threatens to hit Niecy with a rock. Niecy takes the family out for sushi and as promised, Bobby stayed with a babysitter.

The next day, Niecy has arranged a pamper session for the girls and Bobby seemed to have turned over a new leaf. Meanwhile, Tina gets the family outdoors, to go horseback riding and find out that the family knows absolutely nothing about horses. Grandma is thrilled at the outdoor adventure for the children, she is really happy that they are not at the mall.

Bob is home from work and he is getting the full pampering treatment and Niecy tells him that a little discipline went a long way with Bobby.

Tina has the children help to make dinner, while grandma has a rest. The whole family sits down to dinner, Jay says prayer and they talk about what happened in the kid’s school day.

Niecy and the family are on their way to a red carpet premiere, the family really enjoyed glamming up on the red carpet for photographers.

The swap is over, both women are going home but first, they have heartfelt goodbyes for their families that they spent the week with. Now the couples get to meet to share their experiences before they return home to their own families.

Tina called her time away a vacation while Niecy tells her about how Bobby was mean to her at first. Tina claims that she has her own individual way of dealing with him, Niecy tells her about not letting him go out for dinner, a little tough love, then he behaved the whole next day. Tina doesn’t want to listen to the advice – she knows best, according to her.

Tina tells Niecy about taking the girls out to the wilderness and Niecy is shocked that the kids enjoyed it. Niecy doesn’t want to divorce herself from the glamour of her Hollywood life, but she is willing to open up a little for the kids.

Both women are heading home, where they both belong.
