Marguerite “God Warrior” Perrin returns to Trading Spouses tonight

Trading Spouses‘ most famous cast member will return to the show for two weeks starting tonight at 9 p.m. ET. Marguerite Perrin flipped out and said things like, “I am a God warrior, and I don’t want anyone tainted doing anything with my family!”

She apparently has a sense of humor about the whole thing, and thus returns tonight to switch houses with another family once again.

The episode description says she “returns to the show after gastric-bypass surgery and swaps families with a socially conscious mom who homeschools her 7-year-old daughter.”

As a warm-up for tonight’s episode, here’s what happened last time she was on the show:

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
