I have to admit, balloon boy, made good TV. In the end, the police have confirmed that the incident was a elaborate hoax. Another family desperate to have their own reality show. Who knows? It could have been as big as Jon&Kate.
Now the Heene family faces criminal charges for their elaborate prank. The Metro International had some fun ideas of what “type” of show they should star in. Here are some ideas for a new show.
- 1 “Parenting help.” Diane Sawyer teams with Dr. Phil to help the Heene parents improve. First lesson: Don’t make your kids lie about being stuck in a helium balloon.
- 2 “Ye ol’ projectile project.” The kids practice launching each other into the air with a catapult they make with scraps from the junk yard.
- 3 “Intervention.” Jon Gosselin and Michael Lohan come for a little man-to-man talk with Richard Heene about the dangers of reality television.
I have a suggestion, have the family star on “Wife Swap.” Wait a minute, they were already on that show. How about an episode of “Wipeout?”
They will probably a few $$$ off of interviews.
