The legendary comedienne, 79, and her 45-year-old daughter arrive at Bristol's Wasilla, Alaska home that she shares with her 19-year-old sister and her son, 4-year-old Tripp. According to a press release, Melissa, mom to son, Cooper, 12, immediately "finds it a challenge to deal with Tripp's boyish exuberance."

Meanwhile, at the Rivers' household in Los Angeles, the Dancing with the Stars alum, 22, is apparently surprised to find that the home doubles as a set for three reality TV shows and vows to "lighten things up" while she watches Cooper.

Bristol, daughter of the 2008 vice president candidate Sarah Palin, last appeared in the 2012 Lifetime series Life's a Tripp and was on the 2010 11th season of DWTS and on the all-star season in fall 2012.

The Celebrity Wife Swap episode premieres on June 23 at 8pm EST on ABC, 8 p.m. ET.
