Fame-whore and general fucktard Rod Blagojevich won’t be getting the chance to shine on reality TV with all the other fame-whore’s and fucktards. The ex-politico had requested special travel adjustments in order to appear on the show I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! Past celebrities include Brian Paddick, Simon Webbe, Joe Swash, Robert Kilroy-Silk, Dani Behr, Carly Zucker, Nicola McLean and Esther Rantzen…I don’t know any one of those people.
Blago was shut down by Judge James Zagel, who stated, “I do not have confidence that things will not go astray if I modify bond conditions.” The judge also continued on about Blago not seeming to understand the seriousness of his legal situation, and the whole hoopla being a “bad idea.” Imagine that.
NBC released a statement saying, “NBC is disappointed in the court’s decision today regarding Rod Blagojevich’s participation on I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! but excited about the casting announcement for the show this Friday. There are no plans to move the show to a location in the United States.”
Blago was just trying to hustle and make last minute dough, apparently. Before entering the hearing on Tuesday, Blagojevich told reporters that appearing on the reality show was “a way to earn a living and support my children,” according to the Tribune. “It’s not my first choice, but it’s a living.”
Blago could have made as much as $125,00 from doing 12 episodes of the Survivor type show.
I am glad to see that this “celebrity” isn’t getting the special treatment instead of the justice that so often alludes “celebrities.” Blago is a true criminal and needs to be prosecuted so. I still think Winona Ryder got the shaft in her shoplifting scandal, though, for the record.
