Balloon Dad -- Felony Payday

11/13/2009 2:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

For a convicted felon, Richard Heene claims he has some serious job opportunities flyin' in from N.Y. -- where there isn't a high demand for carpenters or balloon builders ... you know what they do need?
TV show guests...

Richard Heene: Click to watch
In court today, Richard Heene's lawyer told the judge that Balloon Dad wanted to roll to NYC -- to seek "an opportunity for employment" in the next week ... while he still happens to be relevant.

The lawyer also stated that Heene, "has other plans to go to California." Of course he does...

Wonder if he'll wind up on "Entertainment Something."

UPDATE -- Heene's lawyer tells TMZ his trips to NY and Cali are not for media interviews and that he has advised his client to "shut up."

Great idea. Let's not make him the celebrity that he "isn't". Leave this for the 6:00 news.

The only place he needs to go is TO JAIL. Where he can learn a "stiff" lesson with "BUBBA". ;=}

I thought there were laws preventing people from profiting from their crimes. Unless he is doing free interviews he could be crossing that line.

I think people would pay him money to see his butt fly around in that crazy balloon. TMZ should start a vote.

In most of his pictures, somehow he looks constipated.

They must have sprayed him with pepper spray as a pre-emptive move before he started acting like an idiot in court.

They were in it for the money    

What does this noodle thinks he's gonna do out here? Manage the Michael Jackson fortune or something? I think he needs better to go over to a quiet place like Louisiana, they dont take no mess there

I've got a great show for this guy which he can not refuse! It's called: I thinks I'm a celebrity .... Please send me to a Russian Gulag. On day two, the film crew just stops filming, packs up and leaves. Fortunately, Henne won't be returning with them.

Another option....Let's Find Heene.....Take him to Russia, give him a bottle of wodka then 2nd day, the crew packs up and leaves. He won't even know he's missing.
