It seems that there’s nothing that 13-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner, and routine dropper of names, Phil Hellmuth, won’t give up for a little mainstream publicity – including Katherine, his wife of roughly 25 years.
“Wife Swap“ is the television show where a pair of married couples exchange the matriarch of each family for a set period of time (a couple weeks) to see what drama may unfold.
Phil’s recent tweet implies that there is or was an offer to include the burger eating poker champ on the table, and, while he was 100% game, “Honey!” had to put her foot down.
One might think that while being married to Phil for that long of a period of time, that this would be the perfect opportunity/escape plan one might hope for. That said, it’s being rejected for now.
Makes sense though as Phil’s wife Katherine, according to Wikipedia, is a Stanford psychologist perhaps giving her the mental fortitude to deal with Phil’s sometimes outrageous behavior and the good sense to turn down a show life “Wife Swap”.
For all he knows, Phil might have dodged another bullet as it’d probably be a race to see if his lady would even come back after the swap. Phil’s luck knows no bounds.
Bonus: “He called a raise with Queen Ten, honey!”
