CHICAGO – The wife of ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is considering reality TV after her indicted husband was barred from travelling to Costa Rica to be on a show.
Blagojevich lawyer Sheldon Sorosky said Monday that NBC has offered Patti Blagojevich a spot on “I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here.”
However, Sorosky says she hasn’t reached a deal with the producers.
NBC spokesman Gary Mednick says the network has no immediate comment.
Sorosky says he has “no idea” whether Patti Blagojevich will agree to be on the show.
A federal judge has barred her husband from leaving the United States to do the show pending his political corruption trial in Chicago.
