Sneed Says TV May Be Next Step For Blago

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Mar 26, 2009 2:40PM

Thought yesterday's radio appearance by former governor Rod Blagojevich was bad? Wait until you see the television show. Yes, rumors are flying the governor is working on a reality TV show. Of course, given the news comes from Michael Sneed, we take it all with a big ol' grain of salt. Sneed quotes "a source familiar with Blago's inner circle" as saying, "I'm told a reality show is being discussed by his inner circle." Sneed also spoke to Blago publicist Glenn Selig, who said, We are focusing on all kinds of things. But there is nothing beyond talk. Not even a reality show." To be fair, though, we can totally see Blago being narcissistic enough to do a TV show just so he can Tivo it and watch himself in HD. Over and over.

Our suggested title: "Hair and Back Again: The Rod Blagojevich Show." Leave your suggestions in the comments. [Sun-Times]
