Blagojevich On 'Celebrity Apprentice'

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich will be among 14 contestants on the new season of "The Celebrity Apprentice."

NBC says others competing for their favorite charities include baseball great Darryl Strawberry, singer-actress Cyndi Lauper, TV personality Sharon Osbourne and Olympic gold medalist Michael Johnson.

Blagojevich is charged with scheming to auction off President Barack Obama's former U.S. Senate seat and with other offenses. He was removed from office but has denied any wrongdoing.

Last spring, he was barred from traveling to Costa Rica to compete in another reality show. His wife, Patti, took his place.

"The Celebrity Apprentice," hosted by Donald Trump, returns March 14 on NBC.
