Oy f--king vey... Everyone's favorite fundie isn't just willing to smoke meth and have sex with a male prostitute, now he's going to swap his wife with Gary Busey.

Producers of "Celebrity Wife Swap" confirmed Wednesday that the former New Life Church pastor and his wife, Gayle, will appear in the new ABC reality series, on which they will swap partners (without sex) with actor Gary Busey and his partner and baby mama, Steffanie Sampson.
The premise is simple: Haggard and Busey will swap partners for a short time. The first couple of days, the men make the rules for their new "spouses." After that, the women take charge. The fun could come from the conflict between Haggard and Sampson, who's reportedly a spiritual woman but not a fan of organized religion.

The best part? The show will start shooting today at the GLBT Pride Center in Colorado Springs. No shit.

I don't know that I have much to add to this one. It rather speaks for itself, doesn't it?

Please, God, why can't Ted Haggard just go back to meth and rent boys?

On a happier note, it's Celebrate Bisexuality Day--which will no doubt be enjoyed by far more well-rounded bisexual/pansexual/queer/fluid people than Ted.
