When “Celebrity Wife Swap” fans tune in to the upcoming episode, there will be more interest in one particular youngster than the two highlighted celebrities combined. Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter, Dannielynn Birkhead, will be seen on the show as her father Larry Birkhead is swapping wives with Helio Castroneves. According to The Courier-Journal on Friday, the show is offering up a glimpse at the life of Dannielynn and how she lives with her dad.
Larry Birkhead is the former boyfriend of Anna Nicole Smith and is well-known by the tabloids during a very long and public custody battle over his daughter. Currently residing in Louisville, Larry lives with his daughter Dannielynn (who is now 7,) his sister Angie, and plus her two children Chloe and Justin. Larry is a hands-on dad and uncle who barely has any time for himself while the kids do not have set schedules or chores. A painting of Anna Nicole Smith hangs in the family home and could be seen by the fans.
Helio Castroneves is a three-time Indianapolis 500 champion and former ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” champion. He lives in Ft. Lauderdale with his girlfriend Adriana and their daughter Mikaella. The family is on a strict schedule that includes no television and healthy dinners every night.
When it’s time for the swap, Angie is immediately impressed by Helio's home but is out of her comfort zone working out with Adriana’s friends and feels out of place consistently overseeing the housekeeper. Meanwhile, back in Louisville, KY, Adriana finds the Birkhead home messy and overwhelming. During her first night of the swap, Adriana shares a family dinner of fast food burgers and fries, but she notices that the family does not spend the mealtime together.
When the rules change the families get a chance to see how life can be more structured, less uptight and the two ladies offer up some surprises as well. “Celebrity Wife Swap” features two women of celebrity families trading households, lifestyles and children.
“Celebrity Wife Swap” airs Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET.
