Blago out of ‘Cathouse,’ Peterson in?

Rod Blagojevich's publicity manager said his client will not appear on a Nevada brothel's reality show -- but Drew Peterson might be interested.

Glen Selig, who handles publicity for both the disgraced former Illinois governor and the suburban Chicago man suspected in his wife's disappearance, said Blagojevich was offered a guest appearance on HBO's Cathouse, but declined, saying it would not be appropriate, the Joliet (Ill.) Herald-News reported Wednesday.

However, he said Moonlight Bunny Ranch owner Dennis Hof might be interested in bringing Peterson on the show in Blagojevich's stead.

We're going to talk to (Hof) about it, he said.

Peterson, a former police officer in Bolingbrook, Ill., has been named the sole suspect in the disappearance of his wife, Stacy, a year and a half ago. State police said the case is considered a potential homicide.

Hof said Tuesday he is still hoping to convince Blagojevich to change his mind.

We're going to entice him to come out here, offer him money and (sex) and everything, he said.
