She is now receiving death threats because the American people cannot stand to see her profiting from her situation when we are all doing so poorly in our economy. We can't even afford to take care of our own kids and now we have to take care of hers too? I am starting to think forced sterialization is not a bad idea after all.

OctoMom Gets Nailed - TMZ.com

Yep, she had time to get yet another manicure yesterday.

Eight premature babies & she has the time or even the mindset to worry about her NAILS?

Amazing.

Yes. All of the babies except one were under 3 pounds and a few were under 2 pounds. And she's worried about her nails?

If she was actually physically taking care of her children, wouldn't her nails suffer because of that and make the manicures completely impractical anyway?

This article says she is "at an undisclosed location and spending time with all her children each day." Well...if her safety is in such danger...why is she out getting manicures?

Yes...I remember my hands being in shreds during their stay in NICU because you have to constantly wash them before you can touch any of the babies and before entering NICU. Having well-manicured long nails just isn't practical or doable - unless, of course, you're not hands-on taking care of the babies anyway.

I had 2 in NICU for a total of 3 weeks & between everything I was doing at home for Baby B (who came home first) and getting to NICU during the day to visit Baby A AND deal with Baby B who came with me - well, I don't know where she even finds the opportunity to go out & get a mani! I don't begrudge any new mom some TLC when she can grab it but everything about Ms. Sulema's just shows where her priorities are and it sure doesn't seem like they are with her children.

Then again, I'm obviously biased against her.

Too bad about the human rights laws. Some sterilization would have been good in this case.

TMZ is all over this woman like white on rice...

They are going in hard on her, so that PR firm needs to catch up to the times, realize the impact sites like TMZ can have & keep their high profile client from looking really, really stupid.

I am, for the first time, going to give this woman the benefit of the doubt...she could have been having the nails removed.

Premature babies with compromised immunse systems & the chemicals on fake nails don't mix.

It could have been a medical recommendation to have them removed.

Still, pics of this woman getting coffee (which costs money) & manicures can be avoided.

The PR that is representing her is awful. Get a grip on the client & stop letting her do things that makes her look even worse than most already think.

The PR firm could have called someone to come to her home & remove the nails or give her a manicure.

Right now, having this nutcase in the spotlight buying video games, getting coffee, and manicures while she has a website asking for donations?? Is everyone who is personally associated with woman sucked into a black hole of stupidness?

As one poster mentioned, all moms need some TLC & down time. But there is a time & place. And if you asked to be in the spotlight like this woman has, expect to be nailed to the wall over everything.
