Octomom: 14 Kids ... and Counting?

by at . Comments

When you already have 14 small children you can't support and are one of the biggest drains on society, what incentive do you have to stop there?

Such is the conundrum of the Octomom.

3 of 14

In a new interview for Good Morning America, Nadya Suleman doesn't dismiss the idea of having more children down the line. It's what she does.

"If I wanted to do it the traditional way and get married, that's like another chapter," Suleman says of getting pregnant again ... God help us all.

The mother, interviewed in her home in La Habra, Calif., as she gets her kids ready for bed, says that she typically sleeps 2-3 hours a night.

No clue how much meth she uses to counter the fatigue.

ALL SMILES: Life is good when you sponge off others.

She spends $1,000 in food and 700 diapers per week, goes through 4.5 gallons of milk and eight loads of laundry per day, and her team of five nannies funded entirely by California taxpayers costs her about $10,000 per month.

That is part of the reason why, Suleman says, she agreed to allow a film documentary crew to follow her around for a series of documentaries (not a "reality TV show"), including one that's already aired in the United Kingdom.

Her payment: approximately $250,000 in the first year.

"I'm dammed if I do and dammed if I don't," she says. "Because if I don't do what I need to do in the media to support the kids, I can't take care of them."

Here's the problem with the giant attention seeker's logic, though. If it weren't for the documentary, she'd have no money. She clearly didn't plan on it ahead of time, and what happens when people lose interest and the bills keep piling up?

Having recently seen the documentary, I think this lady is coping very well under the circumstances, to only have 2 - 3 hours sleep a night is amazing with so many children. Her patience is amazing considering the stress she is under. Why do so many people have a go at her? She is beautiful and is doing the best she can for these super children. Get off her back and let her have some peace to do what she can for those children!
