Tina Yothers cops an attitude

Actresses Tina Yothers and Niecy Nash changed lives on the latest episode of Celebrity Wife Swap.

Tina Yothers cops an attitudeWhat year is this: 2012 or 1982? We'd guess 1982, judging from Tina Yother's divatude on last night's installment of Celebrity Wife Swap. The former Family Ties star swapped places with Niecy Nash on the new version of the show.

Well, we should be fair — both Nash and Yothers were divas on the show. Nash was definitely not a fan of Yothers' new suburban lifestyle, while Yothers didn't want the same pampering Nash loves.

I feel like I have a rat on my head," Yothers said while Nash's stylist put her in a wig and makeup for a lunch date.

"I'm happy in my flip-flops," she added. She's got that right — the former Jennifer Keaton took a tumble in stilettos while at lunch. "This whole Hollywood thing and the pampering, it's just not for me."

Nash wasn't into Yothers' favorite activities either, including camping. "I can't wait to get back to civilization," Nash said during an outdoor trip, ultimately opting for a hotel.

The real fireworks came at the end when the two met up to give each other advice on how to raise their children.

"I have my own individual way of dealing with him and not everyone — friends, family — can handle him," Yothers told Nash of her son. The former Reno 911 star nicknamed Yothers' son "Chucky" for his destructive ways.

Still, Yothers wanted Nash's husband and children to take away a sense of family from her time with them.

"I hope to leave behind that there's more to life than the mall and more to live than video games and more life in your family than you know," she told them.

Oh, yes: Celebrity Wife Swap is all that we imagined — and more.
