Planet Hollywood headliner singer Jermaine Jackson hit sour notes with a temper tantrum on ABC’s Season 3 premiere of “Celebrity Wife Swap” on Tuesday night.
When his wife Halima was swapped with actor Daniel Baldwin’s ex Isabella Hoffman, she exposed his OCD tendencies and extraordinary hoarding of luggage, clothing, shoes and cologne — more than 100 bottles.
Isabella called a storage truck, but Jermaine refused to let it enter the security gates:
Hoffman: “You’re a shopaholic, and it’s crowding everyone out. There’s no other way right now.”
Jackson: “It ain’t gonna happen.”
Hoffman: “It’s gotta happen.”
Jackson: “It ain’t gonna happen.”
Hoffman: “It’s my rules.”
Jackson: “Nobody is gonna touch my clothes.”
The argument ended when Jermaine stormed out and locked himself in his room. He also refused to continue with filming. Producers did manage after much persuasion to get him to take part in the round-table analysis, but afterward Jermaine ordered communication with Zodiak producers to cease.
He refused to give the six-weeks-later update and vowed, “I would never do ‘Wife Swap’ again in a billion years.” Facebook and Twitter fans exploded over his diva display and for being so adamant in his denial of OCD hoarding.
Next week, you’ll see how I react when actor Eric Roberts’ wife Eliza steps out from her hippie life into Las Vegas glitz and glamour while my good friend actress and model Joan Severance tangles with Eric’s screams.
Still ahead, more regular Las Vegas figures: Muhammad Ali’s daughter Laila, the late Anna Nicole Smith’s baby daddy Larry Birkhead and a Las Vegas entertainment couple who swap with a lesbian couple.

Catering to the young and modern crowd, Planet Hollywood is a one-stop shop for entertainment with its massive shopping mall, slew of restaurants, spacious casino and clubs.
The ambiance of the casino is retro-chic meets high-tech with black granite floors throughout and colorful LED lights throughout the space. The theme carries into the 100,000 square-foot casino with 250 flat screens topping off slot machines. The casino is also home to 87 tables, a sports book and a poker room.
There's also the Miracle Mile Shops, one Vegas' largest malls, with 140 stores including BCBG Max Azaria, bebe, Urban Outfitters and The Discovery Channel Store.
Following an afternoon of shopping, guests can satisfy their appetites at one of the gourmet restaurants in Planet Hollywood, like the non-traditional approach to steakhouses at Strip House or check out the exotic Far East motif at KOI restaurant and lounge. And if guests are still looking for more, they can spend the after hours at Privé, Triq or Krave nightclubs.
Perhaps one of the resorts biggest attractions came in March with the addition of "Peepshow." The naughty twist on the story of Little Bo Peep is modern-day spin on the run-of-the-mill Vegas topless review. The "Peepshow" stage has seen visiting celebs like Scary Spice Mel B, "Dancing with the Stars" Kelly Monaco and Playboy's Holly Madison.
