A New Jersey mother once featured on ABC's "Wife Swap" is accused of stabbing her husband. Jamie Czerniawski tells The New York Post it was self-defense. But that claim is denied by her husband's lawyer.

She's free on $75,000 bail, charged with aggravated assault in Monmouth County.

According to court papers, the former Miss Teen New Jersey used a kitchen knife to slash her husband, Charles, in their Freehold home on Memorial Day weekend.

She tells the newspaper her husband became jealous when she got a phone call from a mutual male friend.

The couple were featured in the reality show in 2006. Jamie swapped places with a mom from Arizona who is a tattooed freak show performer.
