Rod Blagojevich, the disgraced former governor of Illinois, is off to prison for 14 years. He’s being put away for corruption and for selling the Senate seat Barack Obama once had. Over the past couple of years, Rod had been becoming a bit of a celebrity himself over this. Appearing in TV shows for various interviews and most notably being a contestant for Donald Trump’s, “Celebrity Apprentice”. He’s 54 now, and he’ll be out of prison when he’s about, 68.
Enjoy it, Rod, and good riddance. I never liked that guy myself.
More on the story, here.
Yes, I have been watching this year’s “Celebrity Apprentice” every Sunday. Surprisingly, this year is a very good season. I am liking the show. It was no surprise to me that Rod Blagojevich wasn’t going to last long. Why did he get fired? Simply for being a douche like he always has been. He must love his 15 minutes of fame just for selling Barack Obama’s Senate seat. The reason I think Rod agreed to do “Celebrity Apprentice” was so that he could show the world that he isn’t a bad guy that people are making him out to be. Well Rod is still acting like an asshole, even on TV.
I don’t see the end of Rod Blagojevich being on TV anytime soon. He is now officially a TV celebrity star. Congrats Barack, look who you just made famous?
What’s next for Rod? Will Rod appear on “The Marriage Ref”? Maybe Rod will come out with his own TV reality show? Maybe even host a late night talk show about politics? Rod on “Dancing with the Stars” for next year? Any of these are possible.
This guy would make a good celebrity badguy, with the likes of Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan. I know the WWE will even try to get Rod to host an episode of Monday Night RAW in the future as well.
Rod Blagojevich, the controversial former governor of Illinois, has been set to be a guest in Donald Trump’s, “Celebrity Apprentice” this year. Other surprising names for this year’s guests include: Sharon Osbourne, Cyndi Lauper, WWE Diva Maria Kanellis, former wrestler Bill Goldberg, comedian Sinbad, Daryl Strawberry, Poison’s Bret Michaels and many others.
This year’s lineup sounds interesting. I think I’ll definitely watch this season.
I wonder if Bill Goldberg can take “You’re Fired” from Trump without throwing a chair at him.
Since the announcement that disgraced Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich was impeached, TNA Non Stop Action wrestling company is offering Blagojevich a job to perform storylines in TNA. TNA is offering Rod to become chairman of the Main Event Mafia stable. The Main Event Mafia is a new group of heel wrestlers similar to the WWE’s Corporation/nWo. The Main Event Mafia is currently being lead by Kurt Angle, but Kurt says he’s all game for Rod taking over leadership of the group.
More on it here:
I actually agree with Kurt Angle that Rod is innocent until proven guilty. I’ve been following the Blagojevich impeachment trial and all that, look like that trial was all talk, they couldn’t prove anything that Rod sold the Senate seat
I’m not on Blagojevich’s side or nothing like that, I don’t like the guy either but you have to understand the fact that he is innocent until you can prove he did anything wrong. I think his impeachment was all ego and power of politics, had nothing to do with selling the Senate seat. Illinois just wanted to get rid of him simply because no one in that state liked the guy.
Did the impeachment trial prove he did anything wrong? No. It was all talk. He shouldn’t have to be impeached just because people don’t like him. I’m not defending the guy, just being real.
