'Celebrity Apprentice' Cast Will Include Rod Blagojevich

Before he becomes The Defendant, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich may become 'The Celebrity Apprentice.' According to The Los Angeles Times, Blagojevich will be allowed to compete in Donald Trump's latest season of 'Celebrity,' within months of a scheduled appearance in federal court.

"Blago" was an 'Apprentice' question mark until confirmation came from NBC today. The coiffed pol was not allowed to compete in NBC's 'I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here' last year, as it would have required Blagojevich -- who is facing corruption charges -- to leave the country (Costa Rica, to be exact). Instead, Patti Blagojevich --merely married to a celebrity, you could say -- became an "I'm a Celebrity ... " contestant and finished fourth.

What would Joan Rivers -- captain of the 'Apprentice' morality police and reigning champ -- make of this season, which mixes celebrity and infamy? After all, Trump is welcoming troubled New York baseball legend Darryl Strawberry and hair band bad boy Bret Michaels of Poison into the boardroom. Can any of this season's blame games compare to a righteous Joan meltdown?

In addition to craving a Joan cameo, here are some other things we'd like to see:

-- Mommies Sharon Osbourne, Cyndi Lauper and Holly Robinson Peete (eight kids between them) run a daycare center.

-- Olympic champions Summer Sanders and Michael Johnson try to sell their medals to gold-obsessed Glenn Beck at above-market prices.

-- Sprinting through midtown on a task, Bret Michaels gets the willies at the first sight of Radio City Music Hall, where he was attacked by rogue scenery at the 2009 Tony Awards.

-- Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Selita Ebanks avoids dismissal when her boyfriend, New York Giants lineman Osi Umenyiora, charges The Donald and sacks him for a loss of fifteen.

-- Comic and "Seinfeld" writer Carol Leifer leads her team in taking over a double-decker sightseeing bus, and installs guest tour guide Michael Richards.

-- Cast members – which also include wrestler Goldberg and comedian Sinbad – roll their suitcases into Trump Tower on March 14.
