What is disgusting is that she chose to have an elaborate in-home beauty treatment rather than have the plumbing repaired. Spin all you want folks,

Well, her kids are really, really cute. And the CPS did not remove them from her care. I wonder if her hair stylist was paid by TMZ for those photographs.

what kind of mother would think that it was okay to have in vitro when she had no husband and no chance of a husband, no money, no talent, no skills, and literally nothing with which to help all those little children go forth and lead a decent life?

you don't really have to answer because i know the answer to that question.

she is a delusional nut who, unfortunately, came into contact with a greedy pig of a doctor who didn't give a rat's behind about what might happen when he "helped" her.

for the record, wikipedia says that she is back on welfare, quote:

As of 4/1/12 it is reported she is back on welfare
It is true. There are a LOT of children who live in less than ideal situations with less than ideal parents who put themselves there because they do not seem to have any common sense or a sense of priorities.

People have more kids than they can afford, buy bigger houses than they can afford, buy fancy cars, buy luxuries instead of paying the mortgage/rent and lose their homes.....it happens all of the time. People who are already on welfare procede to have MORE kids anyway.

Some parents drink, do drugs, ***** around and bring all kinds of trash home to their kids......at least Octomom isn't guilty of that.

She certainly isn't the only parent who makes bad choices.....they are everywhere.....and parents who are much worse than her do not lose their children.

As far as the toliet breaking.....it happens....especially with kids around....and not everyone has more than one bathroom.....and you can't always get a plumber out to the house within hours. Sounds to me like she was making the best of a bad situation.....and I believe she said she did have a plumber there the next day.

Believe me.....I certainly do not approve of her having all of those children, far from it......but I am willing to admit that she seems to do a pretty good job taking care of them. When I was growing up, there was a Catholic family with TWO parents and 11 kids who lived in squalor and sent their children to school filthy dirty. When I was about twleve I remember a first grade teacher bringing one of the little girls into the restroom to wash her she was so filthy.

So yes, there ARE worse parents out there....just take a look around.....and their kids aren't taken away from them.....that is ALL I am saying.

She hasn't done anything to justify taking her children away......yet.

did you even read that article? i hope everyone reads that article before they comment (thanks to the poster):

http://omg.yahoo.com/blogs/now/octom...180648499.html

her priorities are totally screwed up---- raising 14 children alone would be impossible for any mother, and this woman isn't sane.

CPS is essentially worthless as an agency in this country.

it is a tragedy in the making that this woman is allowed to have children and keep her children. they don't even look happy in that photograph being with her. she is living in a delusional world, and cannot possibly give her children what they need.

In a June 2011 interview, Suleman purportedly told In Touch: "I hate babies, they disgust me. … Obviously, I love them - but I absolutely wish I had not had them."[38] Suleman later stated she did not give an interview with the magazine,[39] but a recorded audio tape surfaced three weeks later.[40] (wikipedia)

nobody should be defending her, because she is seriously disturbed and needs help.

her children also need help.

Nadya was recently paid $10,000 for her topless photos in a woman's magazine, so doesn't that sort of dispel the notion that the tax payers paid the hairdresser who came to the house? She's also got a movie role coming up in horror film where she's playing a pregnant mom. She does take media odd jobs like these when they are offered. Who can deny that looking good really is a requirement for her getting work?

But I guess it's not enough. She just went back on welfare (4/1) and is collecting $2K/month in food stamps.
The woman has no steady employment.

How could she possibly have steady employment with 14 children to care for? Good that she takes whatever jobs are offered or that she can find.

Yes, I read the article, from top to bottom.

If you're so certain that CPS is worthless, and you're so outraged and feel no one should defend her, why don't you offer to just move out there and help her take care of the kids?
