Octomom Finally Admits Mistake

Nadya Suleman opened up to Dr. Phil and said that implanting more embryos was a "mistake." At last!

Nadya Suleman, Dr. Phil

On the Dr. Phil show, octomom Nadya Suleman finally admitted that having eight more children when she could barely take care of the six she already had may not have been the best idea. "In hindsight, I don't know what I was thinking," she says.

But Nadya tried to convince Dr. Phil and America that she has a plan for her babies once they come home. "The plan is definitely underway," she says, adding that she intends to live on her student loans.

She also says she will rely on volunteers to help her take care of the babies.

It seems there are plenty of posters that are willing to write Nadya a check!
I would not give this whackjob one dime.
She has been working the system for quite a while and will continue to do so as long as she gets away with it. Supporting her kids and living off her student loans? HA…I thought she was going back to school to get her Masters in counseling…..Yeah right! Who in the world would go to this loon for counseling of any kind??? These kids need to be taken away from her and given to loving homes that can give them the care they need now and will need in the future!

We need to ask why was she implanted in the first place, so this never occurs again. Why does a unemployed, single mom of 6 need ANY more babies? We all love a cute infant and miss them when our babies grow up, but this mom already could not handle the 6 she has, complicated with the special needs of 3 of them! What was this doctor thinking?? Aren’t in-vitro & fertility patients supposed to go through psychological testing and when did it become o.k. for condoning pregnancy in women with no support either psychologicaly or materially? It is all irresponsible both on the part of NAdya and especially of the one who should have stopped this unstable woman - her physician!! She is not mentally stable enough to raise the 6 that she has and it will be the best thing is these 8 new babies are adopted to families that have the resources as well as are psychologivcally fit to give these children a chance at life. Nadya needs to stop being selfish and unbalanced in her thinking and do what a loving mother would actually do, as hard as it may be and let those babies go to families that can and want to pay for their upbringing and make them grow up to be good citizens. The recent declarartion she has made of living off of student loans is not only insuffucuent, it is also fradulent and will not happen. She is scrambling for any plan where she can doas she wants and that should not happen any longer! There are now 8 innocent lives at stake and she needs to let go - the true mark of a loving mother!

I wouldn’t give this woman one dime. THe state should take the kids away from her. She has no job and is unable to support the kids. What was she thinking. Kids cost a lot of money and I don’t want my hard earned money to support her stupid decisions for the next 18 years.

This is insane! Take the babies away, make her get a job and start paying back the STUDENT loans!!!!

Appalled February 27, 2009, 3:33 PM

With no income and her mother’s home in foreclosure, I’d like to see her qualify for a student loan in today’s economy! Since my daughter got denied a student loan for next year, even with me as a co-signer, I will single-handedly lead the public outcry should this demented women be approved such a loan!

I cannot believe some of the comments in favor of helping this THIEF. First of all this is NOT A MIRACLE. This is SCIENCE. A miracle would be if she tried and tried to have kids, then suddenly became pregnant. Secondly, my friends and I are single, and working 2 jobs to pay off our student loans, how is going to repay her loan with 14 kids. Someone commented that all the negative press is going to stress out Nadya. Stress? She has 14 kids, no job, a home (she doesn’t own) in foreclosure, she should have been stressed before getting pregnant the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, etc time. She is a con artist and you are all falling for it. TAKE AWAY THOSE KIDS!!!!

you've got to be kidding February 27, 2009, 3:37 PM

So she is working on a plan—what was she doing for the 5-7 months she was pregnant and the month that the babies are in the neo-natal unit—OH, I FORGOT—HAVING HER NAILS DONE AND BUYING $14 LIP GLOSS AT NORDSTROM’S. What’s this garbage—she’ll live on her Student Loans—THIS WOMAN EXPECTS PEOPLE TO DIAPER, FEED, DO THE LAUNDRY, HOUSEKEEPING, AND “BOND” AND CARE FOR HER 14 CHILDREN while she gets to “go back to school” —Yeah—for 1 kid—But she had 6 kids—BEFORE SHE CHOSE TO HAVE 8 MORE—-using her disability payments to plump her lips, do in-vitro fertilization—etc., and now you want student loans (to pay for the 14 kids and herself and school and housing)—YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING. Californians—I feel sorry for you—your state’s bankrupt because of IDIOTS like this who we will all have to pay for.

I cannot stand that woman’s voice.

Gail February 27, 2009, 3:39 PM

This woman does not deserve to keep this children, they should be giving to loving families that want children, can afford children, but just can have any of their own. She isn’t thinking about these children, she is just thinking about herself.

Debbie February 27, 2009, 3:40 PM

To all who say give the babies up: when children are put into foster care, they usually wind up a mess. So what do you want to do? Pay now or pay later?

C February 27, 2009, 3:40 PM

They need to take all her children and find them good stable homes. Meanwhile, octomom needs to be mentally evaluated, and she should gain nothing from this, no money, no free houses,people should forget about her and try to help her children.

i think the big mistake this weirdo made was to underestimate how the american public would react to her giving birth. she probably figured she’d get a parade thru town, donations pouring in and thousands of volunteers offering their help. instead she got outrage and anger.

Catherine February 27, 2009, 3:42 PM

Has anyone thought about the obvious reason for her choice! She cannot wait to leave her parents’ home (after all she’s 32!!) and receive gratis a big mansion for her brood … she is not so wacko after all, she is very calculating … that is the only way she hoped to live on her own and have us pay for her better lifestyle and home. It is so obvious.

lola February 27, 2009, 3:42 PM

The Dr. that implanted these embryos should be sued for malpractice/negligence. He can pay for the babies medical care and upbringing. Gets the people of CA off the hook for paying for his egotistical act. Next time maybe he will sugget counseling to the next nutjob before he does anything this stupid.

Octo-mom should be SPAYED and ALL of her children removed. This moron had the children believing she would get a free ride and be famous. The ONLY ones who should be helped are these poor kids, they should ALL be removed forever and mom should disappear from view.

JMe February 27, 2009, 3:43 PM

Are you serious?!? She uses student loans to pay for her kids???? I’m busting my butt to go to school and I can barely get student loans!! The state should take away her kids… She shouldn’t be a mother. Just because you can bear children, doesn’t mean you should have them….

Anonymous February 27, 2009, 3:43 PM

there is nothing anyone can do about it now. so lets just leave the lady alone

Manuel February 27, 2009, 3:43 PM

To wacko-octomom,
Pretty soon it’s gonna be time to start picking up cans for recyling in order to support that many kids. Maybe some pro choice people can help you.
