Out of work since he was impeached by Illinois lawmakers, Rod Blagojevich is taking his job search to TV’s toughest boss — Donald Trump.
A person close to Blagojevich’s team says the former Illinois governor will make an appearance on Trump’s “The Celebrity Apprentice” reality television show on NBC. The person, who was briefed on the announcement, spoke on condition of anonymity because it wasn’t officially announced.
The person says Blagojevich will be paid but how much was undisclosed. It was unclear if he would compete on the show or just make an appearance. An NBC spokeswoman declined to comment Friday. (Msnbc.com is a joint venture between NBC Universal and Microsoft.)
Blagojevich currently faces federal corruption charges for allegedly scheming to sell President Barack Obama’s former U.S. Senate seat.
