Taking the extremes to a new level, “Celebrity Wife Swap” on Tuesday night is going to have two different women take controls of households that are completely different. Laila Ali, the daughter of global boxing icon Muhammad Ali, and Angie Stone, a Grammy Award nominated singer switch lives for a week to take care of the kids and live in a different place. According to the TV Grapevine on Monday, the viewers are in for a surprise as the lifestyles of the woman aren't remotely similar.

Laila Ali lives in Los Angeles with her husband, former NFL Wide Receiver Curtis Conway. The house is home to three kids and Laila is in charge of the running of the household. It is a very strict schedule and Ali does it all. From cooking and cleaning to getting the kids off to school, Curtis and Laila are very hands-on parents who keep the kids on a strict schedule, including meal and bed times. Keeping to the more famous Los Angeles life, the family doesn't allow visitors at the home unless invited.

Angie Stone lives in Atlanta with her fiance Ashanti, and two kids. At Angie’s house, Ashanti is “the king of the castle” with Angie serving him breakfast in bed every morning. Even though Angie suffers from diabetes, she loves to cook calorie-loaded soul food. The family invites in friends and family who drop by frequently. Angie spends her days shopping while her family spends time together in the gym.

When it’s time for the swap, Laila is out of synch with the “boys club” that Ashanti and the kids have. Laila is determined to get the family living a healthier lifestyle and encourages an invite for Angie in the gym to help her manage her diabetes. Back in Los Angeles, Angie struggles to keep up with the family’s tight schedule.

Celebrity Wife Swap” features two women of celebrity families trading households, lifestyles and children (but not bedrooms) for one week. This week the comfort zones of two famous women are taken away leaving the ladies to assess their lives and their families back at home.

“Celebrity Wife Swap” airs Tuesday at 10 p.m. on ABC.
