Rod Blagojevich’s wife, Patti, will take his place in the reality show ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.

The disgraced former Illinois governor, who is currently facing federal corruption charges for trying to sell President Obama’s former senate seat, was not allowed to appear in the series because it would take him out of the country. The series is set in Costa Rica.

The couple went on the ‘Today’ show to make the announcement. Patti stated that she hopes the show it will portray her in a positive light – and that the public’s current perception of her as a loud-mouth is unfair.

Rod stated he will be involved in the series but will mainly stay home with the children. Check out a video of their announcement after the jump.
