Tonight’s episode of CELEBRITY WIFE SWAP features a soap-star switcheroo, with GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) swapping spouses with THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s ex-Ridge, Ronn Moss. For a preview of the drama, we went straight to Christopher himself to see how the week went!
“I had a blast,” the actor reports to Soaps In Depth. “I just tried to be as zany and funny as I possibly could. I poked fun at myself the whole time and never took any part of it seriously. That was my approach to it, so I hope that comes across.”
Although before this experience with the reality series, Christopher didn’t know fellow soap star Moss well, he had five full days to really get to know his wife, Devin DeVasquez, who tried to loosen up some of his more rigid habits about fitness and diet. “Nothing goes in my mouth before I think about what it’s going to do to me,” he admits. “I tried to get the point across to her that it’s more than about looks and my job it’s about living a longer life and having more energy and being around for [my son] Greysun.
“She tried to get me to ‘live’ a little bit,” he adds. “It’s not like I’m so rigid about it that I’m a ‘no fun’ person!”
And while his wife, Brienne, was living with Moss, Christopher learned to appreciate his spouse even more. “Sometimes you love each other but you can’t stand to live with the other person because you have different habits,” he says with a laugh. “We’re not cut from the same cloth. We’re two completely different people and we were raised different ways. Thankfully, for us, it works!”
