Helio Castroneves says that viewers of the May 27 episode of “Celebrity Wife Swap” on ABC “will see who wears the pants in my family.”
As the show’s title implies, the mothers in two celebrity families move into the other's home for a week and adopt that family's lifestyle. They agree to follow a manual written by the departing mother that sets out the rules of their new household - how they parent, manage their social life, do house work, unwind, etc.
The show airs at 10 p.m. (ET).
Adriana Henao, the mother of Castroneves’ 4-year-old daughter, Mikaella, moved into the home of another family in December, while the three-time Indianapolis 500 champion opened his Fort Lauderdale, Fla., home for the guest.
“It came about in June last year and I when told Adrianna I didn’t think she would do it because normally she doesn’t like the red carpet and things like that,” Castroneves said. “But she decided to do it, and I think it was a great experience for Adriana to try a different family, and myself, too. The whole Zodiac Production (company) did a great job and I’m looking forward to it.
“I have no idea how the piece is going to come out; I haven’t seen it. It turned out to be some interesting scenes in our (house).”
