Balloon Boy's Mother -- It Was All a Hoax

10/23/2009 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The mother of the "Balloon Boy" has finally come clean, admitting the whole ridiculous fiasco was the hoax everybody knew it was anyway.

In a search warrant affidavit that was released today, Mayumi Heene told sheriff's deputies she and Richard "knew all along that Falcon was hiding in the residence."

In the document, it says "Mayumi described that she and Richard Heene devised this hoax approximately two weeks earlier ... she and Richard had instructed their three children to lie to authorities as well as the media regarding this hoax."

Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden has said he will recommend charges against the family including conspiracy, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, making a false report to authorities and attempting to influence a public servant.

Maybe they should get a reality!
Think about it. Every couple that's had a reality show has divorced or broken up on screen and then divorced. This way, they'll each get some money, let the kids have a normal life in school & friends over on the weekends and that will be the end of the Heenes . . . period!!

I say, give'em a reality show so we can see another relationship go down the tubes. And wifey won't have to listen to crazy. The kids will get trust funds of some sort and move away when they get over.

Anyone who has a kid in the back of a car, chasing storms with a fever of 105 degrees, needs to live alone. What a horrible parent! At least, leave the kid at home . . . in a box!!

Thank goodness someone in this family knows how to tell the truth. I hope that the family is forced to be responsible for all of the expenses the State of Colorado incurred. The family that lost their wheat crop needs to file suit against "Crazy Daddy greedy for attention" otherwise known as Mr. Heene. Those poor kids, being taught to be liars before they can even spell. I wonder if CPS is going to investigate them, AGAIN!
