Greg Williams, best known for his role as teen heartthrob Greg Brady on the 1970s show “The Brady Bunch,” will appear on the July 8, 2014 episode of ABC’s “Celebrity Wife Swap,” along with “Saturday Night Live” alumnus, Joe Piscopo. Despite the title of the series, the two men will not be exchanging wives for a week, but instead will be “swapping personal assistants instead,” according to Branson Tri-Lakes News.
ABC described the episode with, “Two of the most important women in the lives of two single dads... Joe Piscopo... and Barry Williams... swap lives for one week on ‘Celebrity Wife Swap...’” According to Broadway World, Joe currently lives outside New York City with two of his children, Michael, 11, and Olivia, 9. His personal assistant, Jessica, also referred to as his sometimes significant other, runs Joe’s home, but not his children, the report says.
Broadway World also reports that Barry has one son, Brandon, 11, who lives with the entertainer on a part time basis in Branson, Missouri. His assistant, Marie, takes no part in his personal life, which is primarily Brandon’s territory. The Williams household is also quite patriotic and the two typically “recite the Pledge of Allegiance prior to dinner,” according to Broadway World.
Williams, who maintains a show in Branson entitled, “The ‘70s Musical Celebration,” is seen on tonight's episode being less than happy with his new assistant, Jessica, who is late to his rehearsal and on top of that, brings him the wrong guitar stand for his performance. In the meantime, Marie appears to be somewhat confused about the relationship between Joe and his assistant and believes they should keep both the personal and the professional separate, Broadway World reports.
As with every other episode of “Celebrity Wife Swap,” the women learn what it is like living in someone else shoes and either appreciates what they currently have, or want changes to be made when they return to their own lives. In this case, Broadway World notes that when the couples are reunited, “tensions flare... resulting in a shocking and unpredictable moment that changes one couple’s relationship for good.”
“Celebrity Wife Swap” featuring Barry Williams and Joe Piscopo premieres July 8, 2014 at 10/9c on ABC.
