Will Ted Haggard Swap Wives With Gary Busey?

| by Michael Allen

According to the Colorado Springs Gazette,  ABC's 'Celebrity Wife Swap' has lined up actor Gary Busey and former New Life Church pastor Ted Haggard to swap wives, without the sex.

Each episode of 'Celebrity Wife Swap' follows two couples as they switch wives for two weeks. For the first week, the new wives must live by the manual left by the real wife. The second week, the new wives take control and set out to try and change the way their "new" families live.

Haggard fell from grace as a high-profile pastor when news broke of his ongoing affair with a male prostitute, causing him to resign from the presidency of the National Association of Evangelicals. He later participated in an HBO documentary of his post-scandal life, which portrayed him struggling to find a job and a place to live.

Busey has made a number of TV appearances recently, having been part of 'Celebrity Apprentice' and 'Celebrity Rehab.' Busey is a born-again Christian and minister with Promise Keepers. Haggard is a pastor of St. James, a nondenominational church in Colorado.
