Deidre Scaramucci, the wife of former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, says her husband will try not to "blab" White House secrets while appearing on CBS's “Big Brother: Celebrity Edition," which premieres Monday.

“[Anthony is] known to blab sometimes when he shouldn't, but I think he’ll try to reign it in. I don’t think he wants to ruffle any more feathers at the White House than he already has,” she told radio.com in an interview published Monday.

She added that she's a "little nervous" about Scaramucci being surrounded by cameras on the show because he "has a tendency to say some crazy things."

"I'm a little nervous about him being around cameras 24 hours a day because he has a tendency to say some crazy things. And he loves four-letter words," she said. "I'm assuming they have the edit button on red-hot for him."

Scaramucci will be part of a cast that includes Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, former WWE wrestler Natalie Eva Marie and former NFL running back Ricky Williams.

“Big Brother: Celebrity Edition" features celebrities living in a house together while cameras and microphones record them 24 hours a day.

Scaramucci served as White House communications director for 10 days in 2017, departing after he went on a profane tirade while speaking with a reporter for The New Yorker.

He is the second former Trump White House staffer to appear on the show, following Omarosa Manigault-Newman last season.
