Actress/singer Pia Zadora (Butterfly) will swap homes with Oscar winner Cloris Leachman on Celebrity Wife Swap. To promote the show, Zadora went on KTLA to talk about her home life. She says she’s “a big pushover” with her 18-year-old son Jordan Maxwell Kaufer. Jordan is her only child with her second husband, writer-director Jonathan Kaufer. Kaufer, 58, died in a car accident in 2013, the same year Zadora was arrested on domestic battery charges.
Zadora allegedly scratched and choked her then 16-year-old son Jordan. When the police arrived, there was a standoff. The incident is interesting for many reasons including the fact that Zadora is currently married to Michael Jeffries, a retired detective with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, who initiated the standoff. We’re pretty sure none of this be mentioned on Celebrity Wife Swap, which airs Wednesdays at 10pm on ABC.
