NBC interviewed the octuplet mom and the interview is going to be aired in its entirety on Monday during sweeps and will go head to head against the US Airways crew over on CBS which is devoting their entire morning to that story. Hmmm, airline crew saving 150 lives or mom who has created 14 lives. It will be interesting to see which show gets higher ratings.
The octuplet mom says a bunch of crazy things in her interview about how she felt powerless as a child. Ummm, most children feel powerless. I don't think that is a new feeling and doesn't usually make them want to go off and have 14 kids. The thing that gets me about this is that she says that she tried for seven or 8 years to have a baby before she finally had one. OK, lets do the math, shall we. She is 33. Her oldest child is 7 so that means she was 26 when she had her oldest child. 7 or 8 years of actively trying to have a child would put her at 18 or 19 when she started trying. Interesting.
Anyway, below is the excerpt from her interview.
