But could it be just the opposite– that Rodman has used Bae to reignite his image?

On May 7, Dennis Rodman tweeted: "I'm calling on the Supreme Leader of North Korea or as I call him 'Kim', to do me a solid and cut Kenneth Bae loose."

But in the months that followed, he has repeatedly told media he is not an American diplomat, but simply a friend and basketball fan.

Carol spoke with Terri Chung, Bae's sister, about the potential role Rodman could play in his release.
