Not sure what the hell these parents are thinking. First on Larry King, and the very next day on the morning show rounds right away. Can you say, "Fatally starved for attention? Media whores?" The whole thing was spilled right away when the kid, who, was NOT in the balloon that floated all over the place and which sucked in the main stream media like a crack addict, spilled the beans and said "we did it for the show".
So the parents are possibly behind this hoax, and then when asked on the morning talk show rounds - when being asked about the question - has to walk off set and puke --- and then pukes ON camera, into a container while still sitting on dads lap and mom wipes his mouth.
How about THAT family entertainment? Don't you think if the kids sick... or getting sick, that one of the parents should not have the kid on camera after the first incident, and then just cancel the rest of the media whore engagements? WTF! These parents are seriously ****ed up and this clearly identifies a problem with our society - that feels it's worth almost anything to get their 15 minutes of fame and to hang onto it. Where the hell is social services? This is a teachable moment...
FORT COLLINS, Colo. — The 6-year-old boy at the center of the runaway balloon saga got sick twice on national television when he and his father were asked during separate TV interviews what he meant about his comment that "we did this for a show."
Sheriff Jim Alderman says his investigators believe there was no hoax, but will seek a new interview with the family after the CNN broadcast to clarify the statement.
During an ABC interview, Falcon Heene (HEE'-nee) said Friday: "Mom, I feel like I'm going to vomit." He then left the room with his mother and could be heard gagging.
During a live interview on NBC shown simultaneously on Friday, Falcon threw up into a container when his father was answering the same question.
