And we're back to this.
Just when you thought the book had finally, mercifully been closed on the Heene family, none other than Balloon Dad is back in our face, denying that his infamous hoax was a hoax at all.
In other words: It's a bird! It's a plane! It's his last vestige of credibility flying away!
In an interview with Larry King set to air Friday, erstwhile fame-seeker Richard Heene insisted that he truly believed 6-year-old son Falcon was inside the runaway homemade craft and not simply biding his time in the family's attic, awaiting the chance to spew and spill on his dad's misdeeds.
"We had searched the house, high and low," Heene said. "I knew he was in the craft…In my mind, in my mind there was no other place."
So why would such a paragon of truth then plead guilty to a felony and accept jail time for something he had no part in? Well, he may suck as a father, but to hear him tell it, he's a damn good husband.
