FBLA Poll: Will The Heenes Get Their Reality Show?


Will the Heene Family end up getting a reality show?(poll)

Gawker has an exclusive by Robert Thomas who admits he helped Richard Heene in his publicity stunt.

Thomas writes:

Bells were ringing; whistles were whistling. I said, “Wow, Richard is using his children as pawns to facilitate a global media hoax that’s going to give him enough publicity to temporarily attract A-list celebrity status and hopefully attract a network.”

Well, dog fighter and ex-con Michael Vick is getting his own show on BET. The universally despised Octomom got her own show. Does anyone watch Jon and Kate er Kate because they like The Gosselins? Our point being: breaking the law and being horribly unlikable IS how you get on a reality show. Will it work for The Heenes?
