Blagojevich was sentenced on Wednesday (December 7) to 14 years in federal prison for attempting to sell US President Barack Obama’s Illinois Senate seat.
Peete co-starred with Blagojevich in The Celebrity Apprentice in 2010 and said she has nothing but admiration for the politician.
“I know everyone is making jokes but having spent time w Blagojevich on Celebrity apprentice—we bonded over our love of football (sic),” the actress tweeted.
“[I] got to know him as a man dad–so I feel awful for his wife and kids right now… they are tight-knit… Good luck Rod !”
Blagojevich was fired by Donald Trump early on in The Celebrity Apprentice 2010, lasting only to the fourth week.
In November, Peete commented that it was shocking to have been fired from The Talk after only one season.
