Peterson Does Nightline, Fiancee Moves Out

peterson_1-30.bmpDrew Peterson appeared last night on ABC’s Nightline, in an interview with Martin Bashir. It was his first television interview since he became engaged to his fifth wife.

Well, according to Peterson, “his fiancee dumped him as they watched his interview Thursday on ‘Nightline.’” She decided to move out immediately — with the help of “five squad cars.”

“The engagement is over because of your interviews,” Peterson told Bashir today.

It’s been quite a week for Peterson’s publicist, Glenn Selig, whose other major client got impeached yesterday after a major media tour.

Geraldo “Sabotaged” By Blago “PR Guy”

geraldo_1-26.jpgAs if today’s Rod Blagojevich press blitz isn’t bizarre enough, a new wrinkle came from Geraldo Rivera‘s interview, which was supposed to take place at 2pmET on FNC’s The Live Desk.

Instead, Geraldo was “sabotaged.” You see, Blago’s publicist is Glenn Selig, who also happens to be the publicist for Drew Peterson. Seriously. And, as Geraldo put it, “Drew Peterson is my arch-enemy.”

So, Rivera tracked down Blago in the parking lot of “The View” this morning after a last minute cancellation by Selig. He banged on the window until Blagojevich emerged, and Rivera asked, “What happened to our 2:00 interview?” Blagojevich responded: “I don’t know I just go where they tell me.”

Then the interview took place outside while other reporters tried to get in questions as well. As a bonus, Rivera interviewed Whoopi Goldberg.

There’s a lot more to it, including the use of the term “double-murdering.” Just click continued and watch the whole segment…
