Rod Blagojevich’s Wife To Replace Him on Reality Show

Now that a judge has barred Rod Blagojevich from filming I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here in Costa Rica, is looks like his wife Patti will be taking his place RadarOnline.com has confirmed.

“Patti is definitely thinking about it for the obvious financial reasons,” Rod’s attorney Sheldon Sorosky said.  “Patti is not involved in any
of the legal proceedings about her husband so there is nothing to prevent her from going.”

The former governor of Illinois was signed on to appear on the reality show alongside Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, Janice Dickinson and other notorious celebs until a judge nixed his plans. (The ousted politico is still facing federal fraud charges.)

Blagojevich was indicted last month on a host of Federal corruption charges, which is what led Judge Zagel to bar him from leaving the country.  “If the show was shooting in the Florida Everglades, he could have gone,” Sorosky added.

Sorosky declined to confirm if Mrs. B is Costa Rica-bound, but RadarOnline.com has learned she was spotted at the Federal building in Chicago on Monday applying for an expedited passport.  “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here” premieres June 1.
