UPDATE – Nadya Suleman turned down free nanny help because the agency offering it wouldn’t agree to being filmed for a reality show. No kidding! From LAist:
You would think the single mom from Whittier who was told this week she might not even be able to take her newborn octuplets home without proving she could properly care for them would jump at the chance to have the help. But OctoMom turned them down. Why? It wouldn’t make them famous:
Attorney Gloria Allred, who represents the group, said Suleman spoke with Angels in Waiting founder Linda West-Conforti and seemed to be more interested in “capitalizing on her infants” and doing a reality television show.
The non-profit told Suleman that they couldn’t agree to working in stride with a camera crew because of the risk it posed to the babies’ health and their ability to do their work. Allred has filed a request with the L.A. County Department of Child and Family Services asking them to look into Suleman’s ability to assure all 14 of her children are cared for.
Delusional, selfish nutjob. I hope the broke state of California gives her nothing.
payment to be impregnated for more children, resulting in eight babies being born and AGAIN SHE’S UNEMPLOYED IS A
I don’t care what race Nadya Suleman is. I don’t care about her socioeconomic class. I don’t care if she had a tough childhood. I don’t care if she goes to church or not. This woman has a very tenuous grasp on reality. She really believes that she is able to market herself as a ‘baby expert’ now that she’s made this stupendously mindboggling life decision.
There is no kind of excuse for this kind of parental malpractice. How do you decide to feed 15 mouths on a fixed income? In the same way, a person who makes $40,000 a year believes that they can afford to purchase a $400,000 house with no money down is a moron.
There should be a backlash against her for being dumb.
And if I lived in California, I would be hella pissed if any of my tax dollars went to help this selfish, myopic example of humanity support her poor lifestyle choices.
I would rather give my money to the other nut of the week Michael Steele, okay?
