Octomom Nadya Suleman: Officially on Welfare

by at . Comments

In sad, but not entirely surprising news, Octomom Nadya Suleman is doing what she swore she would never do and going on welfare, reports say.

The mother of 14 is getting $2,000 a month from the State of California, which sends it directly to a special debit account (see welfare card image).

Broke as a Joke

The card can ONLY be used for food and is closely monitored to ensure its holder isn't making illegal purchases ... i.e. toys, pregnancy tests, etc.

Just two years ago, after giving birth to children 7-14, she said she refused to become "a self-fulfilling prophecy" by accepting state assistance.

She also said we'd never see Nadya Suleman nude. It's a week of firsts.

Octo got for the card because her income is less than $119,000 a year and a family of 15 that makes less than that is entitled to welfare benefits.

The $119,000 figure is based on around $8,000 for each member of the household. The more kids, the more you can make and still receive welfare.

What exactly did that idiot think was going to happen after she had eight babies with no one to help support and care for them? Answer: she thought she was going to get a TV show and celebrity status like Jon and Kate (who IMO never should have been on TV themselves). Instead she acted snotty and insulted everyone who tried to help her and ended up, predictably, with herself and FOURTEEN children on welfare.

Never be on welfare ? That's a joke her other 6? kids, several are supposedly on SSI. She spent $80-100K having these embryos implanted When she already had 6 kids. The doctor should be forced to PAY support !!!!!

This woman really need to see someone so that she can get mentally healthy. Granted, her kids are her kids and it would be traumatic for them to be pulled away from her but she really needs help. Her doctor should have never implanted so many embryos in her at once and he also should have stopped once she had more than one child without a husband. Her obsession or compulsion to have a huge family on her own should is a sickness and he should have seen that. I feel bad for the kids.

Vanessa, Let's assume you are sitting there at home collecting "walfare" as you seem to be taking this all a bit too personally. Perhaps it would be in your best interest to take an English course with all your spare time...just sayin'.

I can't see why some of you all feels sorry for these crazy ass ladies. Put it this way, why should I feel sorry for someone that who used their kids for fame and money. Kate and oct mom, know damn we'll what they are doing to get money out from the public. I can't stand women, that lie and take from the govornment. Yes, I can understand that you would need help but, don't have all them damn kids just for money. Now, I feels sorry for the kids because they have to suffer, just because of their stupid ass mom's.

Vanessa she's a b**ch for pointing out stupid when she sees it? also since you can't seem to spell b**ch I think it's safe to assume you need to go back to junior high. Having good spelling abilities will help you in the long run. ;) Riley her kids are not safe in warm beds btw, her nannies have said she has no alarm system and there are people who shout and throw thing at her house at night.
