Indicted Ex-Gov Blago to Appear on “The Celebrity Apprentice”


By Allan Lengel
WASHINGTON — Ex-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who became a household name after being indicted for trying to sell President’s Obama’s Senate seat, seems to be doing quite fine while he awaits federal trial next June 3.

For one, he’s written a book “The Governor”, which likens his fall to a Shakespearean tragedy. And now he’s going to appear on the “The Celebrity Apprentice” in what promises to a be a battle of dueling hairs: His against the Donald’s.

Of course, the only reason worth noting this is to mention the comment by Seth Meyers on Saturday Night Live Update, who said of Rod Blagojevich and others joining the upcoming “The Celebrity Apprentice”:

“I think we’ve finally reached the point in our society where ‘celebrity’ just means ‘mammal’.”
