It's funny that you liked redneck wife because the whole production staff hated her. Unlike Fox's Trading Spouses where you get $50,000 in some form, Wife Swap pays only $5,000 to the family. Aletha made demands of the production company that she be provided during the swap. She conveniently left behind clothes, makeup, medicine so that she would get new items. The crew bent over backwards trying to meet her demands.
A lot of footage from Arkansas wasn't shown. They took Aletha out to experience a bar in town. There was a dinner party with Jeff and Amy's friends that never aired. It didn't fit into the story that the crew had edited together.
In my opinion, Aletha was looking for fame. She viewed this opportunity to be something she wasn't. Aletha looked for a job in Arkansas to show that she had initiative unlike Amy. Aletha said she found a job in the mall that paid $10 an hour. Hell if I knew about that job, I would have applied. When they asked the "employer", they said that she wasn't hired and all she asked is that she could help out for the afternoon and all she did was stand in the store. They don't even pay $10 an hour.

I donít know how anyone could live in a house that is only cleaned once a year and where animals are allowed to roam.
I can find no plausible reason why Aletha would agree to be on this show. She comes across as cold and standoffish. I don't think she smiled once. She could have been a little nicer to Jeff when he brought her the flowers. I am not going to speculate about the state of the Alethia and Glenís marriage, but something is not right there. Every time he went to kiss her, she turned her head.
I could tolerate Rasta Jeff, he seems cool and mellow. Gee, I wonder what heís been smoking (heh). They didnít show enough of the SC kids for me to form an opinion, but I found Amy, Glen, Aletha and Emily seriously disturbing. Which begs the question, where do they find these people?
Just Forting Around
Here is Amy's extended family that doesn't want to hang out with her and her husband:

There was not an ounce of warmth in that woman. I know I wouldn't want her in bed next to me...I might wake up frigid. I really believe these families were complete opposites and that Amy was "out of control" emotionally and the Aletha was just a "Contol Freak".
If ever I was sympathetic towards "Tree Huggers..."
I am no longer. At least, not sympathetic towards "tree huggers" who stand under a mounted deer head (It is DEAD, honey. It can't HEAR you,) sobbing near hysterics.
Wait, shall we call them hysterics? I think we shall.
I am middle of the road myself, and no fan of guns or dead stuffed things, but St. Francis of Assisi? Come ON.
While I'm wondering, what was with her Confederate Flag hysteria? Is she a descendant of slaves? Seriously, though... I do understand why some people object to it, and I certainly wouldn't hang one in MY window, but to rant and rave and demand it be removed... maybe it's just me, but I thought that smacked of "I need to pick on SOMETHING, and THIS is gonna be IT."
As for the devil child... I have to imagine her teachers were watching saying to themselves, "Oh THAT explains a LOT."
This show is a train wreck I can't turn away from. I thought of applying, but I do not think on my worst PMS day I could be so judgemental... well, ok, obviously I can BE judgemental, but not to someone's face in their home. Can't wait to see Princess down on the farm next time. She'll probably put the rest to shame.
