Is Kate Gosselin still considered a celebrity?

ABC thinks so. The network has recruited the onetime tabloid staple for its reality series Celebrity Wife Swap. The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star will trade lives with Playboy Playmate Kendra Wilkinson in the season premiere of the Alphabet's reality series, airing Feb. 26.

Like previous Wife Swap-pers, Gosselin and Wilkinson will trade lives, kids and homes for one week. For Gosselin that means temporarily moving in with Wilkinson's hubby, former NFL wide receiver Hank Baskett, and their 3-year-old son Hank. Meanwhile, Wilkinson will try out single motherhood with Gosselin's brood of eight, which includes twins Cara and Mady, 12, and sextuplets Aaden, Collin, Joel, Leah, Alexis and Hannah, 8. Their father, of course, is Gosselin's ex-husband, Jon.  

Wilkinson is also slated to appear as a contestant on ABC's upcoming reality series Splash.

Celebrity Wife Swap returns to ABC on Feb. 26 at 8 p.m.
