Remember that whole balloon boy hoax, wherein a terrible man exploited his family to achieve fleeting notoriety through national panic before being fined and jailed? I try not too every day. But Richard Heene is back, scummier than ever.
According to court records made public today, Mayumi Heene, Balloon Boy's mom, has admitted that the whole incident was orchestrated to make the Heene family more "marketable for future media interest." Nice parenting.
