Nadya Suleman Signs On To Reality Show

Mom-of-14 Nadya Suleman – also known as “Octomom” – will soon be hitting the small screen.

Nadya’s attorney confirms to US magazine that she has signed on to star in a “quasi-reality” show that will focus on her family life with the kids.

“[Nadya and the producers] are hoping to have an arrangement whereby several events in the children’s lives would be filmed in a documentary series. One of the events in the children’s lives might be their first birthday.”

The news may come as a bit of a surprise seeing as Nadya insisted as recently as last month that she would not be bringing in her brood to TV. Asked about a potential reality show by Life & Style magazine, she replied, “Absolutely not! I have no interest in being famous. I’d love to vanish from the public eye as soon as I can.”

Nadya, 33, gave birth to octuplets in January. She also is mom to six other kids ranging in age from 2 to 7 years old.

Will you be watching Nadya’s new show?

I will NOT be watching. I will not add fuel this fire. This woman has serious psychological problems.

and Lucia, I totally and completely agree with you.

No, I will not be watching. I never liked the idea of those shows from the beginning, and I’d be giving Nayda exactly what she wants – attention. I believe in my gut that this was her goal throughout her pregnancy and I will not help her attain it.

Yep, I’ll be watching! Why the heck not? The Gosselins don’t work and support their brood by the same means why can’t she? There is no difference. I just hope the money and freebies won’t go to her head and make her greedy as it has Kate.

Dianna, Kate Gosselin also didn’t have 8 kids after having 6 under 6 years old, and Kate Gosselin wasn’t on welfare while getting in-vitro. Jon & Kate had twin 4 year olds, and then waited 3 years to have more. I don’t really think there’s anywhere you can compare the two.

Unfortunately your facts are wrong. Do some research on the Internet and you’ll see Nadya Suleman and Jon and Kate Gosselin are more a like than you think. We’ll just have to agree to disagree.

Kate has never been on welfare and she did not have six children before having her sextuplets. What part of that needs to be researched?

Well obviously we won’t agree, apparently you think Nadya’s a good person. But that’s ok, it’s your tax dollars going to her, not mine 🙂

I’m not going to turn this into a debate debates bore me. Never did I say Octo-mom was a good person (how do I know if she’s a good person?).. I’m honestly looking forward to her train wreck of a life being on TV. As for Kate (whom you seem to know fairly well.. Kate! Is that you??!) do a little looking around on the net and you’ll be surprised what you find out.

I don’t want a debate either really. I just don’t see how you can support this woman. All the research on the net won’t prove that kate has 12 kids, nor will it prove that kate was/is on welfare. I don’t understand why you’re arguing two extremely obvious points. I don’t even care for Kate too much and I don’t know how much parenting she does anymore, but I know she doesn’t have psychological problems that make her want to continue to have children after not being able to afford their first ones.

The Duggars are just as repellent as the Gosselins and the Octomom, if not more so. Every time you watch any of these shows you just encourage these families and the stations that enable them – please don’t.

I will not be watching. If less of us would watch garbage like this, then perhaps they’d stop making these kinds of shows! Unfortunately, people are probably going to make this a hit show 😛 I wonder what’ll be next…..

If viewership increased sharply for the “…Plus Eight” show once the “controversies” began, well, what does that say — about the producers, the public, and the odds for the success of Nadya’s show? Seriously … Schadenfreude is jet fuel for the “reality” show ride to the bank. I shall try to resist the undertow and ignore the Suleman circus as I have the Gosselins and all the rest. 😛

Nope I wont’ watch. It’s like watching a car wreak and doing nothing to help. I’ve got my own baby to look forward.

Will not be watching this greedy woman!
So what if she’s got 8 babies? it doesn’t mean she should drag them through the media, how discusting!!!

This has been bothering me for awhile. Why are people upset about the Gosselins and Nadya Suleman’s show but yet I never hear any out cry about how the Duggars are exploiting their children. I just don’t see a difference. I am genuinely curious if anyone can help explain this to me.

Because, the Duggars don’t use their children for money. When started have their big family they ACTUALLY had the money to support it through Jim Bo being a former legislator and is currently a real estate agent. Unlike John+Kate who got freebies & had the jobs but didn’t make enough money to support their family, and Nadya who is unemployed & did it deliberately and is actually exploiting her kids for money.

The Duggars do not do it for the money. They do it with the hopes that maybe they can evangelize people in the process. They view it as spreading the Word of God. Also, and it pains me to judge other people’s parenting styles, but have you ever seen a scene with Kate and the kids where it did not end with her yelling non stop at them? Their house does not seem like a happy home. They do it completely for the money, and in my opinion they are dealing with the current controversies very poorly. The Duggars are… Read more »

I will definitely not watch.

I really don’t understand the complaining any more than I do the hype. Every time I sit down to watch a nice Dr. G ep there’s a new family with yet another documentary being advertised. And you know, all of these children on reality shows – and we see everyone from the identical quints, to the two large families that merged, to the Dilleys, and also that new Table for 12 – have it a lot better than a huge portion of the children in this world. We may get glimpses of these kids crying (God forbid), but from what… Read more »

There is no comparing this freak to the Duggars. This woman is clearly doing it for the money, has mental health issues and should not be dragging her kids through the public eye. And as annoying as it is to me there are some people out there who are truly enraged by her/this using the system for her benefit. Especially in this brutal econonomic climate people are angry seeing someone who has no job get freebies like this! Some nut could harm her kids for crying out loud. Doubt she is considering that. Anyway I will not watch this, there… Read more »

Why support any of them- who cares about all these people, seriously?? If I never heard a word about Jon/Kate/Nadya/Duggar/whoever again, I wouldn’t lose a single wink of sleep, or devote even one thought to any of them. My goodness, how utterly boring and mundane it all is. These people haven’t done anything for this society except make it more crowded- I can’t imagine sitting down to watch anyone, let alone these people, live their lives every day. Good luck to all of them.
