Rodman tells Fargo TV station he plans to vacation with Kim Jong Un


Former NBA star turned reality TV celebrity Dennis Rodman sat down with Valley News Live to talk about his recent visit with North Korea's Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.

Rodman was visiting North Dakota for his first time last weekend to host the finals of the Liquid Ice Girl competition at JT Cigarro's in Fargo.

In what the Pioneer Press calls "the world's most bizarre friendship," Rodman tells the North Dakota television station that he and Un are planning an August getaway.

In the interview littered with profanity, Rodman went off on tangents and repeatedly asked the reporter about his personal life.

Rodman maintains Un doesn't want to go to war with the United States.

Rodman, who played for the Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls, among others, visited the country last week for a basketball exhibition with the Harlem Globetrotters, toured Pyongyang and had dinner with the North Korea leader.

Here's video, uncut. WARNING: this interview includes some suggestive content, however all the profanity has been bleeped out.
