A judge said that Former Illinois Governor Rob Blagojevich facing federal “pervasive fraud” charges can’t take off to Central America for the reality show “I’m a Celebrity – Get Me Out of Here!”
So instead, the producers get even less of a celebrity to replace him. His poor wife.
From NBC Chicago (where everything South of them is South America):
All signs point to Patti Blagojevich starring this summer in the reality show “I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here.”
A federal judge denied a previous request by the former governor himself to make the trip to South America (sic) for the show, but — so far — there’s nothing barring his wife from taking part.
Sheldon Sorosky, an attorney for Rod Blagojevich, confirmed that Patti was planning on participating in the show.
“It looks like she’s gonna do it,” he said.
We know a Dick Cheney second-cousin that might also have some spare time if Patti doesn’t get her passport in time.
