I just found out that Rod Blagojevich — who today plead not-guilty to being the worst governor ever in the history of ever — is in negotiations to star on a reality show full of "D-list celebrities."
I don't know why that didn't shock me more than it did. I guess I'd just assumed he was already on a show like that.
I mean, seriously, what took him so long?
The NBC show, called "I'm a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!," will premier June 1, WMAQ reported. The plot would include leaving a group of D-list celebrities in the middle of the jungle and let the plot unfold, on prime time.
The show reportedly could pay the impeached former Illinois governor, who is facing federal corruption charges, as much as $80,000 an episode. NBC confirmed it wants Blagojevich on the show…
According to WMAQ, Blagojevich asked a federal judge Tuesday to allow him to travel if his bond was increased. The impeached governor reportedly is broke and believes the show could help finance his legal defense.
If that doesn't work out for him, I think he should look into taking over for that ShamWow guy.
Unless Eliot Spitzer already has it.
