Blagojevich reportedly lands gig on Celebrity Apprentice

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/10/16/art.celeb.gi.jpg caption="Blagojevich is reportedly going to star in Celebrity Apprentice."](CNN) - Members of the Blagojevich family are becoming pros at reality television.

First, Patti Blagojevich, wife of ex-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, appeared on NBC's "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here" this past summer, lasting 23 days in the Costa Rican jungle before being voted off.

Now the disgraced former governor himself - who had reportedly been the original choice for the Survivor-like show - appears likely to be a cast member of this season's "Celebrity Apprentice."

People Magazine reports Blagojevich has been spotted on the New York City set, along with Sharon Osbourne, ex-baseball star Darryl Straweberry, celebrity chef Curtis Stone, and comedian Sinbad. Singer Cyndi Lauper and Bret Michaels are also rumored to be a part of this year's cast.

NBC is not confirming the official cast list.

    Things like putting Blagovevich on the show are the reason I quit watching it. I have no respect for the choices of people being brought on or for all of the petty arguing that goes on. Why do they think America has to be influenced by such nonsense anyhow?
