Eye on Octomom
Octomom TV Special Shows Chaotic, Heartbreaking Reality
Isn’t it time that someone does something for Nadya Suleman’s children?
-Julie Ryan Evans
Since the birth of Nadya Suleman’s octuplets in January, we have speculated about, sensed and seen signs that her 14 children are being raised in unhealthy environment. Last night’s FOX Special Octomom: The Incredible Unseen Footage confirmed every one of our fears and then some, and makes a clear case that someone needs to do something for the sake of those children.
If you missed it, the whole two hours can really be summed up in one word: chaos. There was crying, screaming, children running here and there, and one little boy hitting his mother, screaming “bitch” at her.
And all the while there was Nadya, always in makeup, always ready to pose for the camera in a different and clean outfit with her rehearsed prose about the life that she’s made for these children … while her children scream in the background.
Though she gained 138 pounds with the pregnancy, she has just 20 pounds left to lose. When asked if she would have a tummy tuck as did Kate Gosselin, she says with a straight, though eerily Angelina face, that plastic surgery is “cheating.”
“Some people are desperate for attention,” Suleman says. “Honestly, I’m not as attention seeking.”
If the above statement doesn’t provide clear evidence as to Nadya’s complete and utter detachment from reality … well, there’s also the fact that she believes her house is haunted and that she’s going to buy Bibles for every room to ward off the haunters.
“Anyway, I have a better shape,” (than Gosselin) she adds, and then goes on to trash the same tabloids to whom she sells her octo- soul stories. (And just in case you forgot, she is trademarking the Octomom name.)
She also says she lives in fear that her children will be snatched. “I catch myself living in fear to some degree … If a car starts to drive up the road, I’ll rush them into the house.”
The climax of the show comes with surprise footage of the actual birth of the octuplets, courtesy of the extremely obnoxious camerawoman Nadya hired to film the big event.
