Culture: Octet Mom Nadya Suleman paid $5,000 for PETA sign

  • Hey, when you’re broke and desperate, these things start to seem like good ideas. Nadya Suleman, a.k.a. Octomom, is about to lose her house due to a pending mortgage bill. While PETA’s $5,000 is only a drop in the bucket (the family owes hundreds of thousands of dollars), it’s a very helpful one, because it also includes free veggie food for her family. Here’s something we don’t say often: PETA wins. source

Culture: Octet mom Nadya Suleman won’t be able to have more kids

  • She’s having an operation to have part of her uterus removed. Suleman, who probably has more kids than she knows what to do with already, is having the procedure after doctors found benign fibroids – possibly pre-cancerous – in her uterus. So, those of you waiting for the possibility of Octomom, mark two, it’s not happening. Darn – we were wondering what 22 kids by one mom would be like, too. :( source

Culture: Speaking of octet mom Nadya Suleman, she’s going reality TV. Sigh.

  • She wants to find a man! Must like kids. In Touch is reporting that Suleman is in talks to be the topic of what promises to be the worst reality show ever, which combines the tabloid-friendly topics of dating and child care into a cluster&(*% of a television show. And, sadly, you will watch. Because she ticks you off and that’s what makes good TV. source

Culture: Like watching child birth? How about eight at once, say, an octet?

  • There’s a video. TMZ was offered it for sale. The video, which shows the beauty of childbirth more times than you might want to see in one setting, was offered to numerous media outlets, but the agency brokering the deal put a temporary hold on the sale on Friday. Yo Nadya, please leave this treasured moment in the family video collection – we beg of you. source
