COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Former megachurch pastor Ted Haggard and Hollywood actor Gary Busey are trading partners for a week for an upcoming edition of ABC-TV’s “Celebrity Wife Swap.”
Haggard’s wife Gayle will temporarily move in with Busey. It was unclear if the actor’s longtime girlfriend would be the one to stay with Haggard under the arrangement.
Haggard’s New Life Church in Colorado Springs had about 14,000 followers when he resigned in 2006 after a man said Haggard paid him for sex for more than three years. The reality show isn’t about infidelity, but about wives experiencing daily life in another wife’s home.
The Denver Post says the network and the production company confirmed the program plans.
