With that Kate & Kendra Take Over Role As Mommy.
Even though Kate Gosselin and Kendra Wilkinson seem to have a lot in common, they both competed on separate seasons of ABC's Dancing with the Stars, after both were on their own reality shows. But that's where the similarities end, because when it comes to their personal home lives, they're completely opposite.
Sex kitten Kendra found out when she was shocked into consciousness when she stumbled into Kate’s home and took on the role of single mom to eight kids. Even taking them to a local arcade park to play games and ride go karts for a night of fun and spontaneity and good news she only loses one of the boys.
While on the west coast the Playboy vixen is used to a daily helper in her Los Angeles mansion freeing her so she can freely live her Hollywood lifestyle with her sports star
husband Hank Baskett and two-and a-half-year-old son Hank Jr.
When the two exchanged switched time zones,houses and children. Kendra started her new day on the east coast a lot earlier than she was used to with a 5:30 a.m. start. With only one other woman on hand for the eight children, Kate’s friend Deanna. The sexy bunny learned quickly that the children have chore's like feeding the chickens. As she observed and commented that the Gosselin children have so many jobs to do. Kids should enjoy being a kids, it's normally so hard other wise.
While the sex kitten was so overwhelmed by her hourly grind, Kate was enjoying Kendra's social life. Feeling imediately relax, and realizing what she had been missing. For once she wasn't focused on 8 kids, while planning to step away a bit and start dating. Kate also was still finding it hard to believe that she would only had take care of just one kid for a week, but also leave nearly all of the house work to Kendra’s husband Hank Baskett and their housekeeper aka ''Nanny" Rosa!
Still there were rules and both women had to impose their lifestyles on the other’s family. On the first day Kendra meets the eight kids, the kids purposely ignore Kendra,who admits that she’s pretty bad at remembering all their names,and is unsure how the rest of the week is going to go. But the kids are mothering Kendra as they teach her how they make their lunches, what their responsibilities are while involving the former playmate with their routine.Kendra admits' that one of the older twins Maddie is mentally older than Playmate Kendra could ever be.
But Kendra still made life less hard and more fun, by deciding to have taco picnic on the floor and took the kids on a day out. Of course the taco making kids made a mess resulting in a lack of control with the children. Soon Kendra realized why the kids have their strict schedule, to simply keep them in line. But with ony one child, Kate Gosselin got Hank and Rosa involved in chores and set up a family dinner together at the same table. Making baby Hank finally enjoy the new structure.
Kate is in for a pleasant surprise when she sits back with a glass of wine and watches Hank make dinner on the grill. Then some of Kendra’s and Hank’s friends come over, and they all grill out and drink together. Nights even got even crazier when the girls take Kate to a swanky LA club! She drinks some cocktails with her new gal pals', while getting use to a life of partying, and actually getting to bed on time.
But by the end of the show, both momma diva's, were happy to return to their own lives but glad to have seen how the other lives.
