Chicago (AP) - An attorney says the wife of ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is considering reality TV after her indicted husband was barred from traveling to Costa Rica to be on a show.
 
Blagojevich attorney Sheldon Sorosky said Monday that NBC has offered Patti Blagojevich a spot on "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here," but she hasn't reached a deal.
 
NBC spokesman Gary Mednick says the network has no immediate comment. Sorosky says he has "no idea" whether Patti Blagojevich will agree to be on the show.
 
A federal judge has barred the former governor from leaving the country to do the show pending his political corruption trial in Chicago.
