Patti Blagojevich on "I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!": Day 3

Apparently navigating Illinois politics isn't all that different from life in the jungle.

On last night's "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!" Patti Blagojevich had some words of advice for John Salley, who was struggling with a crotchety Janice Dickinson.

"My husband had this campaign where he was running against this woman who was a little bit like her," Patti told him quietly. "And he thought of her as, as like a crazy old aunt. That he had to kind of like suffer and kind of like, and kind of just like, roll your eyes at. Like she's the kooky old aunt. You had to be respectful to her because she's your old aunt."

Presumably she was speaking of Judy Baar Topinka

My wife's spider meal an 'act of love'

— Rod Blagojevich

Former Illinois Democratic Gov. Rod Blagojevich says it’s difficult watching his wife, Patti, fill in for him on a reality show, but he appreciated the former Illinois first lady’s televised exercise in tarantula-eating as an “act of love.”

“She's making a sacrifice because she loves her kids,” Blagojevich told CNN’s Larry King Wednesday night. “Eating that tarantula like she had to is an act of love. It's a sign that this is a mother who loves her children.”
