Mrs. Blago to Star on Reality Show

Maybe this will save NBC? Appearing on the Today Show this morning, the Blagojeviches announced that Patti will participate in NBC’s I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here—the reality show her husband wanted to participate in but was banned from by a federal judge. She said she hopes her appearance on the show will help her to demonstrate that she’s not the potty-mouthed spouse that was recorded on federal wiretaps. “I don’t think those characterizations were fair at all,” she said. Rod said that, though he won’t be a contestant, he’ll play a role in the show. In the meantime, he’ll take care of the couple’s two children.
