Bad Parents! No TV For You!

Friday, Nov. 13, 2009 4:45 AM

Richard and Mayumi Heene, the parents behind the 'balloon boy' hoax panic last month, have pled guilty to several lesser charges stemming from the incident, including lying to investigating authorities.

Richard could face prison time, and Mayumi could be deported to Japan.

I think the only suitable punishment is to bar these attention whores from having or participating in any television show, film, or book deal.

And while we're at it, can we drop 'Jon and Kate' into the Laurentian Abyssal or something? The executives behind that train wreck need to understand they made a bad choice, take their lumps, and get both of those clowns off the air. It's not like they're providing a public service on good parenting and sound relationships.
