Balloon Boy’s mom admits it was a hoax

In an affidavit released Friday, it’s been revealed that Balloon Boy’s mom Mayumi had informed the police the entire fiasco was planned two weeks in advance and was, as everyone suspected, a publicity stunt to land a reality show deal. This information is what allowed to authorities to obtain a search warrant for the Heene residence.

In the meantime, Richard Heene has refused to admit it was a hoax until the gecko in the backyard agrees not to launch a lizard revolution to steal our precious man-cheese.
