OK, it's just a reality show - ABC's "Celebrity Wife Swap" - but it's still a little bit like fingernails scratching a blackboard that ABC thinks these dudes are the shining example of marriage not afforded to gay people.

Haggard, you might remember, resigned 5 years ago as leader of the then-important National Association of Evangelicals and pastor of the New Life Church in Colorado Springs after a scandal involving a gay male prostitute and drugs. Haggard admitted to buying the drugs but said he didn't use them - and of course he denied he was gay or had gay sex.

Nonetheless, FoxLA "Good Day LA" co-host and gay favorite Jillian Reynolds talked to Haggard about gay marriage.

On Tuesday, they talked to us about the show via satellite... and let's just say the interview got a little awkward... after Jillian questioned Haggard about his stance on gay marriage.

Video after the break.
