Rob Blagojevich.: I'm ‘Mr. Mom' In Wife's TV Absence

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (blah-GOY'-uh-vich) says he's "Mr. Mom" during his wife's tenure on an NBC reality show.

Blagojevich appeared Wednesday on CNN's "Larry King Live." He said he and his two daughters have missed the girl's mother, Patti, a contestant on "I'm a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!"

The impeached ex-governor says it's difficult to watch his wife perform stunts like eating tarantulas because he was supposed to be a contestant. But a judge didn't give him permission to travel to Costa Rica for the show.

Blagojevich repeatedly told King he'll be found innocent of all charges, including allegations he tried to profit from filling President Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat.
