British American Couple on Wife Swap

Charlie and I love Wife Swap. We were even more excited when we saw there was a British American couple on last week's episode. Our favorite Brimerican couples include Chris Martin/Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Ritchie/ Madonna (RIP) and Paul Bettany/ Jennifer Connelly.

Much to our surprise, this was one of the most upsetting episodes I have watched. Stephen Fowler, the brainy Brit from San Francisco represented English men as anti patriotic, Anti American, elitist, snobby and cruel. His words to his new wife, Gayla Long, were so harsh and undeserving. It was so painful to watch Stephen call her stupid and fat just because she was from Middle America. He made Hugh Grant's character from Bridget Jones diary look like a sweetheart.

I know I am giving this man more that his 15 minutes of fame, but if you missed a second of it, here is where you can indulge yourself:
