Flair / 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper" - The girlfriend
and the wife of two of the biggest former stars of
the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) swap lives
and homes for one week on "Celebrity Wife Swap,"
SUNDAY, JUNE 30 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television
Flair, better known to wrestling fans around the world
as "The Nature Boy," lives in Charlotte,
North Carolina with his girlfriend, Wendy, and her
four children, Sophia (14), Sebastian (12), Paris
(10) and Summer (9). Ric and Wendy live a very lavish
and fast-paced lifestyle and enjoy the finer things
in life, spending most evenings out on the town where
Ric revels in his celebrity and the attention of fans.
Roddy Piper is one of the WWE's most notorious villains
and one of "The Nature Boy's" fiercest competitors.
Retired from the ring, Roddy lives with his wife of
30 years, Kitty, daughter Fallon, son Colt and his
fiancee, Sarah, on a large piece of land on a mountain
in Portland, Oregon. While retired from the business,
Roddy's never too far from the sport, spending his
days training Colt, who is following in his father's
footsteps as a professional wrestler. The Pipers are
a close-knit family who enjoy spending time at home
together. Kitty is solely responsible for the running
of the home, including cooking, cleaning and caring
for the family's animals.
Kitty, arrives at the Flair home, she's happy to catch
up with her old friend, Ric. On the first night of
the swap, she gets an immediate taste of Ric's lifestyle
when he takes her to a jewelry store and buys her
an expensive gift, followed by drinks and dinner out.
Kitty finds it hard to keep up with Ric as she watches
him mingle with fans, and feels left on the sidelines
and alone. When it's time for the rules change, Kitty
sits down for a heartfelt talk with Ric that really
opens his eyes and puts things into perspective. Meanwhile
in Portland, Wendy finds stepping into Kitty's shoes
challenging, especially when she tries to cook dinner
for the family. When it's time for Wendy to implement
her rules change, she tells the Pipers that it's time
to get off the mountain and have some fun - specifically
having the thrifty Roddy spend money on a family day
in town -- which Roddy surprisingly enjoys.
the series, two mothers of celebrity families, each
with opposing values, trade households, lifestyles
and children (but not bedrooms) in a week-long challenge.
In the first part of the exchange, each mom moves
into the other's home and agrees to follow a manual
of "household rules" written by the departing
mother, including: how to parent, manage their social
life, do house work, unwind and more. Everything changes
in the second half of the week, when "new"
mommy" takes charge, introduces her own set of
rules and runs the "nest" her way. At the
end of the week the two couples meet for the first
time. In a raw, honest and highly-charged exchange
of views, the couples will make frank assessments
of each another and discuss their experiences, having
had a very real taste of what life would be like in
someone else's family.

is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected
