Ex-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich isn’t able to participate in the ratings disaster-in-waiting I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here as it would require him to head to Costa Rica for filming. International travel isn’t an option as Rod awaits his trial for that whole Senate seat for sale snafu.
In another “NBC Executives Are Idiots” move, the desperate replacement for Blagojevich’s slot is none other than his wife Patti. She wants to appear on the show so that people will know the real her. Um…is there anyone out there that has any perception of Patti Blagojevich?
I move that this show immediately be renamed I’ve Heard of Celebrities…Get Me Out of Here.
So there’s this dumb article about Dennis Hof, the guy who owns that brothel in Nevada, offering Rod Blagojevich a job on the upcoming season of the show about his brothel. Obviously a stupid publicity stunt, but OMG THERE’S AN UPCOMING SEASON OF CATHOUSE!!!! And I never would have known without this publicity stunt!!!
Here’s the article (well, it’s not even an article, it’s on PRNewsWire, so it’s just strictly a press release, really):
After hearing about the federal judge ruling against Rod Blagojevich’s participation in a celebrity reality TV show, Dennis Hof, owner of the world famous Moonlite BunnyRanch would like to offer him an apprenticeship. U.S. District Judge James Zagel ruled that the former governor could not leave the country to film “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here,” which is to take place in Costa Rica in June. Dennis Hof is not supportive of the judge’s decision and believes that Rod should have the opportunity to fulfill his reality TV desires with the BunnyRanch.
“I am offering Rod an apprenticeship position, in which he would assist with hiring ladies in addition to facilitating with training and proper disciplinary action,” stated Dennis. This apprenticeship could be featured throughout the upcoming season of HBO’s CatHouse. Rod’s willpower would be challenged daily by the ladies as they bribe him to acquire finer rooms or better working hours and days off. In lieu of Rod’s work throughout the apprenticeship Dennis Hof will pay him a handsome amount of money.
Have I ever told you guys how much I LOVE Cathouse???? I think I wrote about it once years ago, but there haven’t been new episodes in a loooong time, so I haven’t had a reason to obsess on it publicly. But OMG I LOVE THAT SHOW. Here’s what they do: Follow high-class hookers ALL DAY LONG. And because it’s on HBO, they show EVERYTHING, like all the sex sessions, all the behind-the-scenes fights and hook-ups and bribery, and you get to see all the crazy weird things that clients request from them. It’s total crack. I am beyond excited for a new season. BEYOND. Hooray!
Hells yeah! You guys remember how pissed I was that NBC had asked ousted Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich to appear on their summer craptacular, I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! So I’m absolutely delighted to hear that a judge has denied his request to leave the country to film the show in Costa Rica. (Rod is currently out on bail awaiting his trial for selling Barack Obama’s Senate seat to the highest bidder.)
NBC said in a statement that they have no plans to move filming to the US to allow this asswipe to participate.
Meanwhile, American Idol also-ran Sanjaya Malakar has joined the cast, along with Janice Dickinson, Geraldo Rivera and Duane “Dog the Racist Bounty Hunter” Chapman (another choice I disagree with).
