Oprah Winfrey has made headlines recently, thanks to a book by Kitty Kelley accusing her of lying about her upbringing, sexuality and other matters.
One way to take negative heat off yourself? Interview Octomom!
Though she has no regrets, Nadya "Octomom" Suleman the Big O via satellite that she lives with a "tremendous amount of guilt" for what she did.
That being give birth to eight babies as an unemployed single mother of six. She said she did it out of her "own childish desires to compensate."
Raised an only child, she said she was "trying to fill some missing piece inside." Oddly enough, they were conceived IVF - no actual piece inside.
Nadya Suleman: Just so wrong.
Instead of filling the void with a significant other, she filled it with Elijah, 8; Amerah, 7; Joshua, 6, Aiden, 5, twins Caleb and Calyssa, 3; and the 14-month octuplets, Noah, Maliyah, Isaiah, Nariyah, Makai, Josiah, Jeremiah and Jonah.
"I've always coveted that connection, that attachment to another being."
"The connection felt safer with children than with a significant other, more predictable," said Nadya Suleman. "The security. I was hungering for security."
Not financial security, obviously, but that's another ball of wax.
"We're surviving," she said (thanks to a bailout by PETA). "We're going, going, going, just trying to keep up. You don't have time to think, to reflect, feel anything. It is a choice. I own all of the responsibility for my poor choices."
Perhaps the first intelligent thing she's ever said.
