Well, this is unexpected.

US Weekly reports reality-TV moms Kendra Wilkinson and Kate Gosselin will appear on ABC's "Wife Swap" spin-off "Celebrity Wife Swap" later this month.

Gosselin, most famous/infamous for her incessant tabloid covers and TLC series "Jon and Kate Plus 8," will be trading lives with "The Girls Next Door" star Kendra Wilkinson.

While the former Playboy model will tend to Gosselin's sextuplets and set of twins as a single mother, her 37-year-old counterpart will take on the role of wife to Wilkinson's husband and former NFL player, Hank Baskett. Gosselin will also be cutting her childcare duties by seven while playing mom to the couple's only three-year-old son, Hank. 

The reality-TV stars have had pretty parallel careers following their first shows that shot them to fame. Gosselin got her own spin-off series "Kate Plus 8" following her highly public (and messy) divorce, while 27-year-old Wilkinson has had two: E!'s "Kendra" and WE TV's "Kendra On Top." Hugh Hefner's former girlfriend also has published two books, "Sliding Into Home" and "Being Kendra: Cribs, Cocktails, and Getting My Sexy Back," while the mom of eight has authored three, including "Multiple Blessings," "Eight Little Faces" and "I Just Want You To Know." Both have competed on "Dancing With The Stars."

The "Celebrity Wife Swap" episode will be the first of the show's second season and is set to air on February 26.
