The parents who were on the show Wife Swap twice have some explaining to do after their 6 year old balloon boy son said on Larry King last night, “You guys said we did this for the show.” Ahh, six year old honesty. Now even if the parents were telling the truth and I am really starting to doubt it, no one will believe them.
What should have been a great feel good story looks more and more like a family that wanted their own reality show after getting a taste of fame on Wife Swap and being in the local news a few times. After the boy said that, Wolf Blitzer chose to ignore it and move on to another question. How can you ask a question and then get an answer and not listen to it for a follow-up? How is that possible?
