Reality show for Peterson and fiancee?
Drew reportedly in talks

BOLINGBROOK — It’s too bad they already have a reality show called “Survivor,” because there might not be a better title for a series starring Drew Peterson and the woman hoping to become his fifth wife, considering what became of spouses three and four.
A source said the recently engaged Peterson; his attorney Joel Brodsky; and neighbor-cum-flunky Steve Carcerano all are wheeling and dealing their way into a reality show with the help of a Las Vegas-based representative.
Peterson repeatedly refused to comment on whether he had a reality show in the works, but did say Friday during a “Today” show appearance with fiancee Christina Raines that he has interest in pursuing such a venture.
Professional poker player?
The Las Vegas connection identified by the source denied having a deal done with Peterson but did admit to being in contact with him.
“I have talked to him,” said Matt Palmer, proprietor of 11Management.
“That’s my company,” Palmer said of 11Management. “I own it.”
Palmer described his role with 11Management by saying, “I represent talent.”
His page on the Web site LinkedIn said he founded 11Management in May 2007 and that the company is in the business of “professional poker representation.”
Peterson did not respond to questions about whether he has professional poker playing aspirations, but Palmer confirmed having a face-to-face with the former Bolingbrook cop.
“I have met with him,” Palmer said, refusing to disclose the details of his conversation with Peterson, who state police have named their sole suspect in the disappearance of fourth wife Stacy Peterson. State police also are investigating the unsolved homicide of Peterson’s third wife, Kathleen Savio.
None of this has stopped the 55-year-old Peterson from living with Raines, a 24-year-old unwed mother of two. Peterson also said he plans to marry Raines — just as soon as he divorces Stacy, the wife who vanished nearly 16 months ago. State police have labeled her disappearance a “potential homicide.”
Link to Vegas
Two sources said Peterson traveled to Las Vegas around the last week in January. One of the sources said Peterson was meeting with Palmer, who was introduced to him by Steve Carcerano. Carcerano lives down the street from the Pheasant Chase Court house that Peterson shared with Stacy but now lives in with Raines and her two children. Carcerano resides even closer to the Pheasant Chase Drive home Peterson lived in with Savio and their two sons.
Carcerano was present the March 2004 night Savio was found drowned in her own dry bathtub.
Carcerano failed to return numerous calls for comment. Both sources said Carcerano is to be cut in on whatever revenue is generated by a reality series.
