NBA legend Dennis Rodman is going back to North Korea!
The Worm materialized at a charity gala tonight in Miami Beach, and announced he is heading back to impoverished nation whose supreme leader is threatening a nuclear holocaust.
“I’m going back August 1,” the former rebound getter told Gossip Extra exclusively. “We have no plans really, as far as what we’re going to do over there, but we’ll just hang and have some fun!”
“We,” by the way, meant Rodman and Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.
The former ball player returned last month from a first visit to North Korea, where he met with the strongman several times.
When asked about Un’s escalating war rhetoric, Rodman said the Soviets’ rhetoric was worse in the 1950s and 1960s.
“The Russians were way out there, and they were acting on their threats,” Rodman said. “He (Un) just wants to be loved. He just wants to sit down and talk. That’s all.”
Rodman added he still hopes to meet with Pres. Barack Obama before his departure, although he realizes it’s unlikely.
More than 700 guests, meanwhile, attended the yearly fundraising fiesta at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach. It was organized by criminal defense attorney Roy Black and his wife Lea, one of the stars of The Real Housewives of Miami.
Roy Black introduced Rodman to the guests as “the U. S. ambassador to North Korea.”
“The good thing about Dennis being here is that it makes us pretty sure this city will not be bombed by North Korea tonight,” Roy Black said.
