Kerik succeeds where Blagojevich fails: a slot on a reality TV show

If you missed The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Bravo this week, you missed a cameo appearance by former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, who was considered himself a possible candidate for Governor or U.S. Senator in New Jersey. Now under indictment, Kerik is no longer viewed as a potential player in New Jersey politics. In less than five years, he has gone from being the President's nominee for U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security to a cameo role on a cable TV reality show.

The Franklin Lakes resident appeared with close friend Caroline Manzo, one of the housewives. Manzo is known to some North Jersey political figures as part of the family that owns The Brownstone in Paterson.
