Thursday, May 28, 2009

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Former governor Rod Blagojevich's wife is off to the Costa Rican jungle for a TV reality show. Patti Blagojevich is appearing on NBC's "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here." She's competing because a federal judge barred her husband from going while he faces federal corruption charges. The show premieres Monday. Others set to appear include actor Stephen Baldwin and "American Idol" contestant Sanjaya Malakar. Patti Blagojevich has said she's appearing on the show because of her family's financial situation. Both she and her husband are out of work.
