First Look: The Crappy Octomom Documentary!

by at . Comments

Last night, a one-hour documentary called Octomom: Me and My 14 Kids premiered on British TV. It will air (as My Life As the Octomom) at a later date in the U.S.

In this low point for reality TV, the freak says "sometimes I think God is testing me," defending herself against her critics, adding: "I'm a competent, good mother."

Nadya Suleman, now a mom of 14, is open about her struggle to bond with each of her octuplets in the early stages of life, admitting that "it takes a while ... I found myself bonding with, like, three or four [more] than the others. It's so hard."

Also hard? Raising more than a dozen kids with no job. Oh wait, no it's not, taxpayers will gladly pick up the tab there. In fact, she should probably have more kids.

The show's producer and director, Luke Campbell, called Nadya "tenacious," as well as "completely approachable" with "a logical sense of the enormity of her situation."

This is the first time anyone has ever used "logical" and "Octomom" in the same sentence. Campbell did acknowledge that he worries about Suleman at times.

"She burst into tears for half an hour mid shoot," he recalled. "[Nadya Suleman] means well, but I don't think in the future she's really going to be able to really provide the necessary level of monitoring and mothering [that a child needs]."

YA THINK?!

Shooting for the documentary, and future installments to air at later dates, began in April. While distinguishing her show from Jon and Kate Plus 8, Nadya says:

"You live in my life one day and you'll see, you'll realize: it's ludicrous."

Indeed. Follow the jump to see a clip of this crap ...

I think she looks great..now that Angeline's got a new one(Poor Brad), Nadia you have enough!! No new ideas..

I think the initial idea of getting a little publicity to pay for her kids/nannies is a good idea, but only to an extent. She's totally milking it, and should try to actually work for the money.

I left a comment n you didn't post it. One of the kids looks mongoloid and her best friend looks 'buch', need I say more?

Isn't anyone else worried about that huge freakin camera perched on the absolute edge of the counter inches away from these tiny babies? Not to mention the fact that the camera itself is hanging over these kids? Comon what if one of the camera guys sneezes????

I am still trying to figure out how someone would plan to have 6 babies to make money (Remember, only 6 were implanted. Two split into twins). First of all, most pregnancies with sextuplets fail, and there was no reason to think that she could even carry the seven she found out she was having without profound disabilities. I believe she went through with the pregnancies because, like the documentary showed, she had 5-6 embryos put in each time and the most she ever got was twins. She did not want to destroy the embryos she had left, and these were a product of the last six she had left. She is doing pretty well for someone with 14 kids. My husband and I have half of that and we struggle at times (our family is blended due to the fact that I lost my husband). She is smart to have nannies to help so that she can give each child some individual attention.

I think it's pretty cool. I've always wanted a lot of babies but then I'd have to find a way to pay for them, like having a job, which is just too much trouble for me. Nadya is so smart, she got other people to pay for them.

Are you serious Ronan?? SHE's not raising those kids, the (paid) nannies are. This has always and will always be about her making $$$ without working. She complains about needing large amounts of money to raise those kids, so she can't get a job. Hello!! How do you think the majority of large families support themselves? It isn't by pimping out the kids!!! If she doesn't want people criticizing her, then she shouldn't be putting herself out there.

You go Deb!!!! And Ronan she is hardly a poor woman she is crazy like a fox scheming all the way through life,and we would gladly leave her alone if she would do the same and go into obscurity and leave us alone...she is the one who puts her business out to the world!!! What kind person has kids without a thought of how she is going to support them and then uses them as a bargaining tool to make money!!!!! Hec of a get rich scheme don't ya think!!!

This situation was brought on by one woman and her quest to become rich and famous, and doing it on the backs of 8 babies and 6 older children. Children that she didn't take care of but threw them at her elderly mother living on a fixed income. Of course the tax payers will end up paying for this family, we already paid for the birth, and SSI and student loans paid for the IVF treatments. This woman is not a mother but a scam artist and will lie even when the truth would work.
Shopping and getting her nails done are first on the list of things to do, then photos, then family. These babies are here for one reason and planned ahead of time to be put to work the second they were born. This is one of the biggest scams to date. Liar, scam artist, user, selfish, self centered, and by no means a mother,
