“Celebrity Wife Swap” features the wife swap between Mick “Mankind” Foley and Antonio Sabato, Jr in the season finale. Will it be the final smackdown, however, for the Sabato household? Time will tell.
The show starts out with the wife’s investigating the new digs they will be staying at for the next week and Cheryl, Antonio’s fiance, is not too happy with the disarray she faces. Colette, Mick’s wife, however, is in heaven in the clean Sabato home but thinks there is too much time spent cleaning according to the schedule posted on the refrigerator. When the women figure out where they are, Colette is beaming to be in the presence of a male god while Cheryl seems a little star-struck herself as this is Antonio’s daughter’s favorite wrestler!
After meeting the families, Mick seems a little worried about Colette being in the home of such a handsome dude for a week. Get over it! As the two women struggle to abide by the current rules in the houses, Cheryl is on a never-ending cleaning spree while the Foley’s sit around and watch. Mick is a slob as are the children and there is little respect for all that Colette does do which includes making six separate meals each evening. Seriously? At the Sabato house, Colette is amazed by the help she receives in making one meal for the family, but overwhelmed by the amount of housework and the rigid schedules even though she thinks it is great that Antonio takes care of himself.
At rules change, Colette is going to try to get the Sabato’s to slow down and enjoy life while Cheryl is going to try to get the Foley’s to learn some structure. As the changes take place, Cheryl leaves the kids to clean the house while she takes Mick out for a makeover which includes new teeth and a haircut. The Sabato’s are relaxing in the pool while the house turns into a disaster area! But hey, that’s life! Antonio, Colette, and Mina go to a fun park for the day and when Mick returns home from the makeover, the kids are really impressed as is Cheryl with their effort to clean the house!
At the couples meeting, ideas were exchanged with each side noting there was some definite changes which needed to be made and it seemed to be going well until Cheryl got overly sensitive by Antonio’s confession that they really needed to change from thinking everything needed to be prefect because they are not. Cheryl went off on him and even though he apologized, she left him in the limo and took a room at a hotel. She is really high-strung and acting like a complete witch! It made the Foley’s feel as though they did something wrong. In the end, Cheryl realized her over-reaction and all is well in the Sabato house, so it was not a final smackdown after all…but it was close!
