So True So False, STSF

Are Gary Busey and Ted Haggard's better halves about to see a whole different kind of crazy?

The kooky actor and the disgraced pastor are rumored to have signed up for an upcoming episode of Celebrity Wife Swap, which was supposed to tape at the GLBT Pride Center in Colorado Springs today.

But come on, would these two really sign up for this?

This rumor is...

So true!

In what has to be the most brilliant reality TV casting ever, Busey and Haggard will in fact swap their better halves for an upcoming episode of Celebrity Wife Swap, a production rep for the show confirms to E! News.

Busey's baby mama, Steffanie Sampson, (they're not actually married) will take Gayle Haggard's place as the wife of the former New Life Church pastor, who came out as bisexual earlier this year.

Steffanie will briefly fill the position of a wife who stayed with her straying hubby even after he was caught with a gay male prostitute. Gayle will see the real Busey, who has been on both Celebrity Rehab and Celebrity Apprentice and is now himself a born-again Christian minister.

The only thing the swappers don't share is a bed.

Although the wacky duo's episode was supposed to begin taping today at 10:30 a.m. at the GLBT Pride Center, the production crew never showed for the taping, executive director of the center Charles Irwin tells E! News.

"The segment producer from Celebrity Wife Swap contacted us a few weeks ago about taping," he said. "We already had a program planned for today...and they were a no-show. We have no idea why at all."

Irwin said he received a voicemail yesterday saying the shoot had been canceled, but that he believed it was a prank because the center is in a conservative area.

No word yet on why the crew changed location. An airdate has not yet been set for the episode.
