Patti Blagojevich on "I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!": Day 6
*Rod was the people's governor.
"People are really supportive," said Patti. "My husband's a jogger, you know, he runs, and people will be honking and thumbs up [and saying], keep fighting, don't let 'em get to you..."
*Longtime friends turned against them.
"Good friends, they just weren't strong enough to stand against the tide or speak up for him," said Patti.
*The Blagojeviches aren't impressed by luxury.
"There's a 35-room, 50-thousand-square-foot mansion in Springfield with the chefs and the butlers and stuff," said Patti, "but we decided that for our girls, we wanted to keep them in the school where they were and keep them in the home where they were, because it would be too much . . . Boy, those people in Springfield hated us for that."
*At least one co-celebrity suspects that she's calculating.
John Salley: "So you play quiet wife but you know how to work?"
Patti: "I express my opinions when appropriate."
One of the things helping Rod's case more than anything is that, compared to some of the other contestants, Patti is down-to-earth, polite, gracious, and, if nothing else, a real person.
To what extent this is an act may never be known, but judging by the FBI transcripts, whatever we're seeing is, at the very least, only one facet of her personality.
On the other hand, it's a lot easier for joe average to relate to a woman who went to state university, and then entered the real estate market, than to an NBA player or supermodel.
Score one point for the Blago PR campaign..... and they need all the points they can get!
