In the most revealing interview she's given since her husband's Dec. 9 arrest, Patti Blagojevich told the Sun-Times her love for Rod Blagojevich has not wavered.
"Through thick and thin. You're married. You made a commitment to someone. I love my husband. He's a devoted husband, a great father. He's loyal, hardworking," Patti Blagojevich told the Sun-Times. "I don't see why these circumstances -- which were wholly beyond our control, rained down on us -- would affect our relationship."
As she prepared to appear as a contestant on a reality TV show, Patti said her chief concern is for her two daughters.
"The big challenge is keeping things as normal for them as possible" she said. "That's why I'm doing the show. We're going to try as hard as we can to keep them in the same school they've been in since they were toddlers, to keep that kind of stability in their lives. That's why I would consider anything like that."
Mrs. Blagojevich said fears that a lack of income will create instability for her kids. She said she's doing the show, in part, to help keep the family in the same Ravenswood Manor home as well as afford the $20,000 annual tuition it costs to put both her daughters in private school.

Because taking them out of the white, north side Chicago private school they are in, and sending them into a school designed, staffed, and administered by liberal Democrats and the teachers' union would be torture! She'd rather eat tarantulas!

Heh.
