So, remember all that fuss about how former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich wanted to appear on the reality competition show "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!"? And how he couldn't, because the show was shooting in Costa Rica and a federal judge ruled that Blagojevich was barred from leaving the U.S.?
Well, it now looks like Blago's sending in the next best thing as his replacement: his wife Patti:
In another bizarre chapter of Illinois political history, the wife of onetime governor Rod Blagojevich is likely to finalize a deal this week to appear in a reality TV show.
"It appears she's going to do it," said Sheldon Sorosky, attorney for Rod Blagojevich.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Patti will join the likes of actors Stephen Baldwin and Spencer Pratt, wrestler Torrie Wilson, model Janice Dickinson, onetime American Idol contestant Sanjaya Malakar, retired NBA player John Salley and actress Heidi Montag on the show.
If Silda Spitzer shows up on the next season of "The Apprenctice," I'm quitting TV.
