Patti Blagojevich will appear live on a reality show tonight that's being filmed in Costa Rica.
But should the former first lady be here, in Illinois, assisting in her husband's criminal case?
"She has absolutely nothing to do with the trial," said Rod Blagojevich's lawyer, Sheldon Sorosky.
Sam Adam Jr. said Patti Blagojevich is doing what any woman should do when faced with an economic crisis in her family.
"That's what you have to do to feed your family," Adam said. Adam said Patti is doing the show to support her children. "Dignity is not in play," he added, because she's doing it to help her family. Both Patti Blagojevich and her husband are unemployed.
The show, "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here," offered to pay Rod Blagojevich up to $123,000 for a month's work. Patti has likely struck a similar deal.
