    This isn't the show deal I had in mind...to be the star of the new reality show, "CELLIE SWAP."

    Media: Where you shocked when the Judge started singing your song " Science Detective"
    Heene's: We plan to sue!

    Richard, we should call The Salahs and warn them. They are next.

    The Heene's adamantly deny the rumor that their son will be leading Santa's sleigh on Christmas Eve.

    Richard Heene (exasperated): Now c'mon, folks...sheer nonsense. Mayumi never claimed that she dated Tiger Woods.

    The Heene's are disappointed to learn that the new 3 hour curb on flight delays includes personal balloons.

    "C,mon hon, we're on our way to THE ultimate reality show: 'Rich and Muyumi Go Bye-Bye Prison".

    On a brighter note, there's still a possibility of a reality show on Fox.

    Based on the Heene's balloon design and prototype, the Judge let them walk out of the court room apparently feeling they were definitely not a flight risk.

    A stunt gone wrong comes back to bite the Heene's in their heinys.

    He might have been naughty, but Santa's still giviing him what wished for.

    "Twas two nights before Christmas,
    and all through D.C.,
    Paparazzi are hanging 'round,
    to get a photo of little criminal me....

    My stockings are drenched,
    and won't hang by the chimney with care,
    St. Nick may not come -
    but surely "Us" and "TMZ" will be there!

    A group of cameramen here: I think there’s a potential market out there.

    It will take quite a while to get a grip on exactly what it takes to be successful.

    This makes me think that maybe he’s starting to get it: people get into hot water with each other because they fail to anticipate what the ether is thinking.

    I told you that getting off hook is more important than admitting that you were wrong.

    In his dreams, Richard Heene fights his way through adoring throngs and a swarm of paparazzi with wife Mayumi by his side.

    A simple hoax... I frankly don’t see why people got their knickers in a twist over this.

    December 23, 2009 at 4:44 pm |
  47. Isabel Siaba

    Fine, jail... another thing that really gets my knickers in a twist is when my Blackberry doesn’t work.
