If you fart really loud in a crowded room, a TV executive will pitch you a reality show about it, so it’s no surprise that Balloon Boy’s family might get a reality show out of all this fuckery. TMZ says that the Heene family began pitching a reality show to the networks months ago. They billed themselves as a “wacky family,” and approached the company who produces Wife Swap. When they got shot down there, they took their idea to TLC. TLC confirmed that the Heenes did come at them, but their show idea was turned down.
Since all the networks farted on their idea, maybe the Heenes felt they needed to pull some real shit to get noticed. The “popping a kindergarten class out of your vagina” thing has already been done, so they got creative. However, the police announced today that they completely believe that it was not a hoax and that the Heenes are telling the truth. The police also confirmed that after the balloon went up in the air, Daddy Heenes called 911 first and then called a local TV station. Daddy Heenes told the cops that he knew the local news station had a helicopter and could monitor the balloon. The police will interview the family again tomorrow after all the morning vomit has cleared.
So back to the reality show thing, I think we all should get one. ALL OF US! I mean, I should be able to turn on my TV and see you in your cubicle reading this while scratching your crotch and smelling it. You should be able to watch me pluck my nose hairs in the morning and eat microwaveable oatmeal out of a large yogurt container. Reality shows for everyone!
But if the Heenes MUST be on a reality show, they obviously need to go on Hoarders. Here’s their garage:
After they are done with Hoarders. They can pay a little visit to Intervention. Their addiction? FAMEWHOOOOORING.
