    I shouldn`t laugh, but I live in Ohio, where all the blimps come from. This woman would never be able to go outside here, because the blimp is flying around all the time. When I saw this I couldn`t help but picture her fleeing in terror every time she goes outside!

    umm... where in ohio do you live? cuz... i live in ohio and well, there aren`t blimps like, anywhere. ever. i may have seen like three blimps in all my time here. and how did we manage to get all the blimps? Do we ohioans have a blimp monopoly on the rest of the country? i`m not being sarcastic man, i am genuinely interested in the blimp population here in ohio.

    I know she`s not laughing, and I think it`s real, but it sounds like she was laughing when she was running from the balloons. I honestly believe that people can be afraid of anything, so I have no doubt that there are people out there afraid of balloons, mustard, pickles, and what not.

    I do agree that the woman needs help, but what Maury is doing isn`t helpin at all. Mocking someone on national television and having the audiance laugh in their face isn`t going to make her any less scared.

    Maury. Just in case no one has told you lately...

    Strangely enough, after this was film, she was cured. In order to show she was cured she bit one of her grandchildren`s balloons and a piece lodged in her throat suffocating her.

    Maury you`re an non-nice individual and I hope that you get whats coming to you. How could you do that to someone? I hope you can`t sleep at night because of the way you have used people just to try and get ratings on your show. You are no better than Jerry at least all his shows are staged, you make fools of people who genuinely have a problem and need help.

    It`s actually a type of therapy what he does. exposing her to the overwhelming presence of them all. He surely could of done a better job of it i will agree with you on that and there is a large attempt to give viewers an idea of untamed reaction to balloons. But the initial shock could very well increase the chances of her handling the post therapy better, depending on how they conduct it.

    just thinking, exposure is a real type of therapy. Although I hardly think this is therapy more like "dude I heard a chick scared of balloons, lets get her on fill the episodes with balloons, ratings and some laughs baby" This could give her anouther phobia of like maury or tv. just as dumb, just as funny

    this is just improbable. a balloon can pop in your eye and it won`t even hurt that much.

    i have an idea. take her up to the top of a tall building, and slowly start to push her off. the only way she can save herself is to go inside a hot air balloon. brilliant.
