This woman makes me sick, and my heart hurts for her innocent children who have to grow up with this freakshow of a life.
Same here, Ruby. My heart just hurts for those poor kids.
yeah @ruby. she needs to learn what true parenting is.
It was butterscotch pudding. Is octomom on a death watch because she seems to be going the destruction route.
Why is this mess of a woman allowed to keep her kids? She is obviously struggling and I have a hard time believing she can keep up with every single child out of her 14. This just isn't a way of life for any child.
Years from now one (or several) of them will write a book revealing everything they had to endure while under the Octo's compound.
To me, just the fact that she already HAD 6 wonderful children before getting pregnant so irresponsibly with 8 more shows she was just hoping for fame/TV shows/endorsement deals…..she is selfish and thoughtless and should be in a locked down mental ward with her no-good doctor as a roomie. What happened to him, anyone know? Did he lose his license? (I hope, I hope)
How did she get money for the fertility treatment in the first place? This woman grosses me out.
She is unspeakably selfish.
@Puggle. That is a damn good question! Are/were they in cahoots to do the fame-whoring thing?
^They^ being docs and OctoPussy.
Sorry, still on second cuppa!
Who are the sick f***s who get off on watching a mother of 14 strip?
What a classy broad.
Someone HAS to take these kids away from her.
Most of us do stupid stuff when we're young, but she has really gotten herself backed into a corner with few solutions available. The children are really going to suffer. She's anesthetizing herself to the whole situation. I can't even imagine the day-to-day running of the house.
The doctor lost his license to practice in California. I think he might be able to slither over to another state to put up a shingle.
Just as there are medical doctors who will write endless prescriptions for the like of La Lohan, knowing full well she has addiction issues, there are medical school graduates (who apparently got their diplomas from matchbook universities) who will put 8 embryos in a womb.
Oh, and we use $240 worth of clear gelatin in our bathtubs because pudding tends to stain.
I don't understand why her children weren't taken from her in the beginning. It would have been far easier to find adoptive parents when their babies. Even if they are taken from her now, it might be more difficult to find them homes now that they're older.
Well, for starters, shes nuts. The kids should be taken away. Oh she'd cry and carry on, and a day later hit the pole.
Ehhh its florida if its f**k up it happends in florida.
I would just want the kids to stay together if they were taken away. That may be difficult to do. She got herself into one huge clusterfuck, and the kids are the ones suffering.
I don't know her full story but are you guys saying her children are better off in foster care because she's a selfish stripper? Is there more to this story because that seems harsh. Foster care is full of abuse and neglect so is she that type of mother? I'm not being snarky here? I know very little about her
@PuggleWugWanna feel real good? Octonut got her money from the government in student loans to pay for her fertility treatments. She was going to school. I cannot stand this woman.
She boxed herself into a corner, but I blame the doctor who made it possible more, and wish he could be made to support the children he's responsible for.
$240 worth of pudding. Looks like somebody loves "The State"!
Ugh, this is so sad.
I have no use for this woman. She is annoying and grating, and that is before she even opens her mouth. Her laugh makes me cringe and reach for the remote….which leads me to believe that is why she never got offered her own show like the other one with 8 kids. She just doesn't come across as likeable. That being said, she has 14 children and has to do something to keep the roof over their heads and food on the table. My moral compass may not be as high as some of you all, but if she is getting a lot of money for swinging around on a stripper pole—good on her.
There are tons of stories about siblings who where taken away from their parents and placed in foster care. It sounds like a solution, but then you have 14 kids who can't be placed in one home–because that is just over whelming. The foster care system is rife with abusers, and people in it for the money, so what kind of lives do you think those 14 kids are going to have? They will grow up being resentful and bitter angry adults because they were snatched away from their mother and each other. Who are we to say that is better than what they have now?Personally I could go the rest of my life and most of the after life without hearing this woman's name again. I think every time she gets a little attention it fuels the fires in her mind that she is a step closer to being famous.
Why do I feel sorry for her…must be because we are watching her self destruction. There's some kind of mental health issue there.
Not foster care. Adoption.
That's a pretty specific dollar amount for pudding.
Love The State reference with the pudding! lol
I too believe she has some form of mental illness. I think some of her kids have special needs plus the volume. Add of that n you have a formula for heartbreak. Those poor kids!
Faster care is the first step. The older children do have fathers, so they have to be located and willing to give up all parental rights. If you think this woman is going to just relinquish all her rights…you are wrong..and that is what has to happen before they are adopted. So you have several years bouncing around the foster care system, and in the end all you have is 14 more sad cases of angry adults with problems because of that.
She is the living "this trick" getting the side eye.
The poor 14 children will never have a chance unless someone intervenes. CPS is so slow, and it's all red tape.
That doctor should be in PRISON. He should have lost his freedom, not just his CA license.
She thought she was going to be the next Angie Jolie – with the plastic surgery and multiple kids. Fail.
I thought all the kids had the same dad???? I know a lady who adopted a ton of kids, begging to be famous – in FL…We are talking around 20 kids! DCF was called all the time, but she never lost custody of any of them, well the ones she kept…Just a different version of Hoarders to me…classic case of mental illness in both cases!!
I am shocked, appalled and outraged. Not. Somebody lock her up before she has MORE babies lives to destroy.
I don't think she did it for the fame, because she rejected reality show offers back in the beginning. I think she did it because she is seriously mentally ill, and I blame the asshole of a doctor more than I blame her. And look at the doctors who continue to provide plastic surgery to women (and some men) who have already destroyed their faces. Doctors are just as ethical/unethical as the rest of the population, which means there are some real doozies out there.
I'd need drugs too if I was living this woman's life–whether her problems are her own fault or not.
I honestly can't think of what would really help her at this point–if she had possibly let the little kids be adopted when they were babies, maybe she could have kept it together to raise the rest, but now they are bigger they know her and their siblings it would be so hard to do.
What a mess.
Her kids could be sent to live with the Duggars!
Also, in my latest Oprah magazine there was an ad for a "where are they now" show on OWN and it had Octomom listed in the ad. It's not like we never hear about her so I'm not sure how she made it on the list of people. Surely there aren't too many people who want to know, and it's not like places like CDN don't keep us updated.
That is all from me….
Her parents were pretty outspoken in the beginning, I wonder what happened with them? I've seen her interviewed and she's delusional as hell. It would be hard to place those kids and there really aren't any easy answers. Unfortunately I don't think she'll live a long life
I thought she got the fertility treatments with Workman's Comp money she won in a lawsuit.
You can't just walk in and take someone's kids (even in Florida) just because a lot of people on the internet thinks she's crazy. I agree this woman did all this to be famous. I agree she's annoying as hell and I feel really really badly for her children. But until she does something really bad and really obviously illegal, her kids will stay with her. She's doing porn and stripping, FCOL, its not like she's living easy.
Nothanksdarlin: Per the post that you're responding to, she is drinking and using drugs to the point of blacking out AGAIN. The allegation was made by a former nanny. So this post was not made because she's a stripper.
She was previously investigated by CPS, and although nothing was done by CPS, she immediately checked into rehab.
You don't need to know her back story, although most [all?] of the other posters here know it.
Allegations that Mom is blacking out due to drug abuse -> CPS investigates. No reference needs to be made to her [professional?] career choice[s].
Go climb back up on your pole or broom or soap box. We all know that strippin' is how you put yourself through academia
Yes. She got injured at Norwalk State Hosp in Cali.
If wishes were horses…This ill woman is doing her Best That we think it is sub par is obvious. The 8 set are four now, old enough to reason (somewhat) get all the kids into Therapy and ASK them WTH is going on. Ask THEM what they want (after a suitably lengthy period of time), they might surprise us all. As to the Fathers, according to Wiki, they are All in vitro births (her husband,divorced before the 8 pack, was not the father of Any.) SMH It says something that this chick couldn't turn off the Crazy Eyes long enough to get pregnant in the usual way,drunken One night stands. LOL
Enty gets +1 for the State reference. I'm Doug, and I'm outta heeeeere.
Wow. I didn't realize she was 40 shades of drunk mess. I just thought she was crazy mess for wanting all those kids. Don't get me wrong, I love my babies but even just 2 babies is enough on most days!
