Last night Twitter was abuzz as a many a soap fan gathered around the television set to watch ABC’s Celebrity Wife Swap, the soap edition!  In it, two couples were featured and as is the premise of the show, the guys have to switch wives for one week, where for part of the week the woman lives by the gents rules , and the tables are turned for the latter part of the week.  In the end, the couples come together to discuss their experience with one another.

General Hospital’s Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) and wife Brienne Pedrigo, and their four-year-old son Greysun were one of the featured families. And what was shown was that:  Tyler has a very definitive calorie counting regimen and is the chef of the house. He loves his son Greysun more than anything, and he and Brienne love the beach, being outdoors exercising, and are not prone to huge public displays of affection.

As counter point to them, the former star of The Bold and the Beautiful Ronn Moss (Ex-Ridge) and his wife Devin Devasquez were the other couple in the wife swap.  Moss was shown to have very overt romantic gestures to his wife, drinks wine, loves to be his “man cave”- the garage rehearsing with his band Player, but does not dig the outdoors so much, and neither did his wife, Devin.

But as for Devin, she was shown to really gravitate towards Tyler’s son and wanted to teach him some table manners and new foods during the wife swap. Devin, who works on social media for herself and Ronn, tried to get Tyler Christopher to do a little video on the beach to help engage his fans and for him to open up a bit.  For Brienne , she tried to get Ronn to get outside and go for a ride with her on tandem bicycle, and she did so by first taping off his garage so he would not go near it.  That did not go so well!

Two different couples with two different perspectives!  After watching the episode, who surprised you the most and why? Tyler, Brienne, Ronn or Devin?  Let us know!

    Tyler Christopher weighing his food all the time is odd, do not know many that do this unless they are training for a competition…Ronn Moss being naked does not surprize me at all!!

    OK here goes. For a reality show.I liked it. I liked all four of the couples. They all came out looking fine. The Christopher’s son is adorable. No one came out looking like an ass ,as others have done on other shows.It was nice seeing Tyler is not a prince, He is on TV so counting calories is perfectially acceptable. Ron Was very loving to his wife, and they all pretty much followed the rules. No one looked to be angry all the time. I enjoyed it !

    Agree with everything you said. It was odd for one of these shows because there’s usually so many fights and squabbles.

    Ronn Moss! Strange to say the least lol He was too touchy feely with Brienne. What he does with his own wife is his own business, but touching and treating Brienne the way he did was just creepy. He and Devin were both a tad condescending to both Tyler and Brienne. I did like the way Devin was with Greysun though.

    I was most surprised by Tyler Christopher. For some reason I thought in real life he’d smile and laugh a little more easily. Ron Moss was as creepy as I thought he’d be, although I liked that he didn’t seem to mind that his wife isn’t stick thin. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the show. And yes, Grayson is absolutely adorable.

    It’s “Greysun”, he’s part Native American.

    My biggest shock was Ronn Moss’ house! How can he afford that “manor”? LOL.

    I found both Ronn and Tyler a bit strange. Ronn was a tad inappropriate in certain aspects with Brienne. Tyler was a little weird with the calorie counting. I can understand it with him, he’s on television, especially soaps where your appearance is key, I can understand his strict diet- but for his wife and kid? If my husband was counting MY calories, I’d slap him silly.

    Ronn Moss came across creepy to me. Tyler is a little bossy but nothing over the top. Enjoyed the show.

    I think Ronn is too selfish to be any kind of a real dad. He is the teenager in his house and he’s happy!
    Tyler has to watch his weight, it’s part of his gig. Yes, lighten up.
    These shows are so edited to have juice.
    Producers did a good job finding counter lifestyles.
    It was entertaining.. . the beach seemed way more fun than the over sized, over styled, staged house!

    I assumed that alot of the “fights” between the swapped couples was exaggerated or staged and I didn’t take that part of the show too seriously. I was very interested to see how Tyler lives, and Ronn Moss, and I’m sure we did get more than a peek into the relationships of the actual couples and their lives. The part that seemed the most sincere was Devin’s feelings for Tyler’s son. I thought that was real and touching. Plus, it was good to see Ronn again.

    As I previously mentioned on the post before this one, Devin surprised me the most in that she came across as much more together and grounded than I expected. She really keeps things moving at “Chez Moss,” and her forte’ in the kitchen was certainly impressive….not the stereotypical Hollywood wife who cannot even boil water! I also admired her true partnership with Ronn…they seem to have an amazing and affectionate bond. Their playful nature was really sweet…just goes to show that 40+romances needn’t be staid or boring! As for Ronn….quite the saucy one, isn’t he???? Somehow I just knew that his reveal about his “song performance” was forthcoming….like he couldn’t wait until the end of the show to share that little tidbit with the Christophers…and all of America!!!! LOL. That being said, I found it all to be in good fun, although if I had my druthers, I would much rather visit the Moss residence, as I am also not a sun and beach person!!!!

    I just saw some clips of what went on & I went away very sad! I think my problem with Ronn’s wife is she just can’t put a sock in it and Mr. Moss needs to keep his shirt on for the camera and in the day he was a stud. Old father time has not been kind.

    LOL, k/kay, and you say I’m the one whose sarcasm knows no bounds!!!! Yes, Devin can come off as a bit, um, too enthusiastic, but I think her heart is in the right place….I honestly expected her to be much more off the wall, so I was pleasantly surprised she was actually pretty subdued in comparison to my preconceived notions . As for Ronn, I just wanted to see what must be his massive collection of scarves….the fact we didn’t get a tour of his walk-in was a disappointment to me. I also liked that he was into dressing (and covering up) for dinner….sounds like Rod Stewart, albeit on a somewhat less grander scale!

    Shay replied

    @k/kay….Although I didn’t follow Ronn’s career that much after I quit watching B&B—post-Thorne2 and pre-Thorne3—I do recall the brouhaha that followed his departure from that soap due to his wife’s social media postings and also that there were some rumblings then about prior unflattering personal comments she had made in the past regarding the ex-wife…..not privy to the specifics, but overall, probably NOT a good idea! That is, in fact, why I expected Devin to come off as sort of loopy, pushy, and maybe really high-maintenance and self-absorbed?…I certainly would not have pegged her as being so nurturing, devoted, capable and domesticated. Perhaps those positive qualities also caused her to be a tad too passionate when it came to sharing, opining and defending her husband in the public domain? Hard to say, but overall, I was left with a favorable impression of her after viewing the show, and that was not something I thought I would! Hence, I give her the benefit of the doubt!

    I just finished watching the show OnDemand.

    Hhahaha Shay! Even on this we disagree! Ron and his wife have a true partnership? The way he struts around and has her feeding his bandmates, cooking for their guests, getting drinks for the band, telling her how to dress…(I assume he does all these things…or as much as we’re led to believe from these “reality” shows…by the way he treated Tyler’s wife.) Her nude pics on the wall? Yes, I’m sure she loves showing them off…but I found their relationship simultaneously very loving, sexual…yet like Ron loves his playboy bunny who would do the world for him.

    As for Tyler and Brienne…they came across as much more down-to-earth…though Tyler really seemed reserved, controlling and regimented. Didn’t see much personality there. He claims he’s not like Nicolas, yet his “aunt Alexis” is always telling him to be less proper and cut loose a bit more…I see a similarity though on a different financial scale with less entitlement.

    Overall the show for me was like a peepshow…LOL…just peeping in to see what their homes/wives look like. It was an interesting look…I didn’t find any of them offensive or unlikeable….

    Ron has a cute, smirky sarcasm about him. His wife, even with her “wifey” role seems sharp/bright.

    Tyler is one handsome dude; his wife seems very girl-next-doorish and earthy. Spencer…ahem…I mean Greysun…was beyond adorable…

    @rebecca1….Well, I know I am going to raise the feminists’ hackles, but here goes anyway! I have no problem with Devin and what you seem to view as her role of subservience…..Ronn’s dual music/soap career has obviously handsomely provided for a fine lifestyle for the both of them to enjoy, and I view her contributions as no less important than his….she supports his social media efforts to keep his loyal fans in the loop, furnishes a gracious home with obvious love, business-like management and tasty home-cooked meals that she takes pride in preparing and seems very happy and fulfilled in that capacity….who are we to judge???? That is what some of us would say constitutes a most successful marriage, and yes, a partnership as each person brings their own strengths to that union!!! This couple seems to thrive on marching to the beat of their own drummer in the privacy of their palatial love lair, and at the beginning and end of the day they are there for each other…..certainly worse things a woman can face in this world!!!! As for Devin’s “Playboy” past, that was a path she chose for herself decades ago, and she is content with her image as a former “Bunny,”…..it is part of her personal history….so what??? It’s not as if Ronn found some indecently young girl to exploit and promote in that respect for his own ego gratification….these two came into each others’ lives as grown adults and have created what by all indications is a very cool, charming and devoted relationship…..it’s a lovely thing to behold. Quite frankly, I found Brienne as being much more “under the thumb” of her man than Devin. Although I totally respect Tyler’s commitment to healthy living for himself and his family, he is extremely controlling in both the dietary and living departments….it were as if his wife didn’t quite know what to do once she was cut loose from his apron strings for that week….the “deer in the headlights” look was a dead-giveaway to me! That’s not to say that I didn’t like her, but whereas Devin bloomed and flourished in her independence—especially with Graysun—Brienne shrank in hers….although some people found Ronn’s attempts to be “friendly” too familiar and off-putting, I think he was just trying to loosen her up a bit with his perhaps overly-flirtatious nature. I didn’t find anything untoward about it….I actually laughed, as we all know guys who are like that! He didn’t cross the line….she just was really taken aback and didn’t appear to know how to respond, which rather puzzled me….surely living in L.A. she must know how to schmooze and mingle with entertainment types, even if her wifely and motherly duties keep her at home for the most part. I also think that the differences between the two couples may be down to age….there is a generational gap and thus, their concepts and experiences as to what constitutes a suitable home life would be vastly different. The one unifying thing I noticed about both couples was that they seemed to have found the right match for themselves, and that was a really nice thing to see….there were no major drama queens or trainwrecks that are seemingly de rigueur for reality programming. Overall, this was a fun and interesting show to experience!!!!! (Even though it won’t turn me into a regular viewer….)

    k/kay replied

    @ Shay I have no problem with Devin and her love for Ronn just sometimes she came off as too much. She did a social media blog a few years ago about Ronn’s ex and said some things that we did not need to know and his daughters did not need to read that. I did think it was funny that she said she did not know how to deal with children when she has helped Ronn raise his daughters. I am sure that was scripted. The best part for me was trying to pick which lifestyle I liked best I decided BOTH! Lol!!!

    rebecca1 replied

    I agree; there’s nothing wrong with her having been in Playboy. I just said it’s an “interesting” form of art to have hanging all over the walls and for some reason I felt like I was watching Hef with one of his ladies… And I also don’t think there’s anything wrong in Devin handling the PR for Ron…she seems quite capable as well as personable. But Ron came off to me as a bit sexist…though she doesn’t seem like anyone’s pushover…When Brienne had to go in and serve the “boys” drinks…and go shopping for what they wanted…it was a tad too much for me. I’d be like…”get it yourself…” UNLESS I was already on my way out to do some shopping. (if they do everything together they should have had that stuff stocked in the house.) Overall, if I can believe it wasn’t all put on for the show, I agree that it works for them. They seem happy and in love.

    As for Tyler’s wife…she’s no deer in the headlights. She’s a e pit reporter for ESPN on NASCAR…I just think it was a look of disbelief when he asked her to go shopping, wear her hair down and refused to ride the freaking bike! LOL.

    Cute couples all around.

    Shay replied

    “Hef with one of his ladies…” LOL, rebecca1! Yeah, I suppose that “server role” rubbed a lot of women the wrong way!!! But I wasn’t one of them…..those boys in the band are like family, so Devin was just being a gracious hostess….it’s her thing, and being Southern, I don’t think she finds it to be demeaning at all. But I have friends like you who would definitely see that task as uncool….I’m just one of those rare birds that doesn’t view things through that much of a feminist prism….a lot of issues that really ruffle others feathers don’t phase me, yet I’m definitely no pushover either!!!!! (As for the grocery shopping, a lot of women prefer to do it themselves….they get exactly what they want/need and not a lot of the junk they don’t if their man hits the market instead!!!!) But I can take your point….still, I remain less impressed with Brienne. Probably because she is just a bit too low-maintenance, outdoorsy and chill for my taste, but I applaud her efforts. However, I remain with Ronn on the bike riding the second time around, and I also agree that women look better with their hair down and dressed up, so I didn’t find his request unreasonable….go ahead, call me a traitor to the so-called “sisterhood”…..it certainly wouldn’t be the first time I’ve heard that!!!! ; )

    rebecca1 replied

    Not sure if it’s okay to post links here…Shay (etc) if interested…this LOL contradicts quite a bit about the Moss stay-inside household…seems he likes biking too (maybe not a bicycle built for two but still…) and is a tad more outdoorsy and exercise conscious than portrayed. Seems like it was necessary to build the contrast of the two couples. Or…they could have emphasized differences that they REALLY DID HAVE!

    Actually, my favorite was Brienne. What a delight! down to earth and charming, not to mention a GREAT sport! I’ve always been a Tyler Christopher fan, but she is a real asset to him.

    Ron and his wife live a pretentious life and Tyler and his wife live a normal life. I wish that Tyler would smile, laugh, and be less serious. He actually said that he was going to try to relax more. He needs to watch what he eats b/c of having to take his shirt off on the soap and he competes with younger guys there too.
    I enjoyed the show and both wives were very, very nice and not purposely trying to hurt one another.

    Back when Nikolas and Lizzy were having that vile affair while hapless un-Lucky was shopping for wedding rings, Tyler was going through his fat Elvis period.
    I called him Chubby Bunny back in those days.
    So, good for him for using those Weight Watcher scales and counting his points.

    Ron Moss was odder to me in his home life…. unless that was just for the show.

    And what is with all those scarves looped around his neck, or the bandana tied around his neck?

    I think Tyler weighing his food is a little odd, but if he has a problem with his metabolism and needs to keep a certain weight for the camera, I can see why he’d be concerned.

    The best part was Ron’s wife got to “have” a child for a week……. maybe they can adopt or she could go work with kids, and let Ron take care of his own social media while she’s doing something more meaningful. :-)

    Ronn Moss and his wife are so over the top. His wife is just so pathetic. She actually thinks she’s a Hollywood celeb. Not to mention how condescending – her comment about Tyler’s house was so inappropriate …she once again has made herself look like a complete ass all by herself.

    Omg! I just watched my recorded episode with Ronn Moss and let me tell you, I found him creepy as hell. All that cappuccino shirtless serving was just pathetic. The way he is looking at you is creepy, even though I think is intended to be romantic. I think the dude confuses romantic with creepy. Sheesh! I do not want to see him again. I was afraid he will try to rape that lady at some point. Very very disturbing. The other dude was just too rigid. No smiles, very serious, not laid back at all. His counting calories is whatever he has his reasons. But man, Ronn Moss?! Nah!
