Reality TV mom Kate Gosselin is about to get a vacation of sorts. ABC announced that the mother of eight is participating in the new season of "Celebrity Wife Swap." The person she'll be switching places with? Fellow reality personality Kendra Wilkinson.

The show typically swaps wives who have completely opposite lifestyles. And in this instance, the difference is pretty huge. For starters, Gosselin has eight children, while Wilkinson has just one. (Hope the former "Girls Next Door" star gets plenty of rest before heading over to handle a brood of eight.) There's also the issue of actually being a wife. Wilkinson is married to football player Hank Baskett, while Gosselin is an ex-wife (of one Jon Gosselin).

"Wife Swap" often shows the husbands struggle with the "intruder's" new set of household rules, but with no hubby at the Gosselin home, who'll pick up that role? We asked ABC, and the network said the mom of eight will not have a boyfriend around while Wilkinson is at her home with the eight children. Perhaps the nannies will have to step up for that particular task during the week of the swap. 

"Celebrity Wife Swap"  premieres Feb. 26 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Do you think Kendra will be able to handle Kate's eight kids? Will Hank survive Kate? Share your thoughts on our Facebook page!
