Octo-Mom Erupts! Video Showdown With Her Mom Over Babies

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This The tension has been building for months, if not years. Octo-mom Nadya Suleman has been publicly and strongly criticized by her mother Angela, who contradicts key parts of Nadya's story.

Now, in a world exclusive Nadya and Angela face-off on camera for the first time - and fireworks erupt! Angela denounces her daughter's decision to have the in-vitro procedure that led to the octuplets and Nadya loses her cool and lashes out at her mother on this exclusive video.

"I will never understand," Angela tells her daughter about Nadya's decision to have in vitro. "You should have considered your other six children."

"You can't go back and alter the past. Done, done, done," an agitated Nadya tells her mom. When the discussion turns toward adoption sparks fly and Angela gets an intense reaction from Octo-mom when she says her reaction to seeing the octuplets for the first time was: "I felt sorry for them."

Wow. What an extemely selfish woman. Nadya’s mother needs to let go?! What more can she let go? These years are supposed to be hers to enjoy. She raised her daughter. Her job is done. Now she’s losing her home, all of her retirement checks, and has to raise all of these kids! How ridiculous!

I felt sooooo bad for Angela. Angela had a good point. There was no need to destroy the embryos. What I think she meant to say was “donation” of the embryos to an infertile couple. Nadya is so selfish that she believes why should anyone be entitled to her “babies” yet she can’ possibly handle 14 kids now. Funny, but she benefited greatly from “donations” now, yet its unfitting for her to pay it forward.

Very selfish…

Wow, what a sad situation. The poor grandma! It sounds like she has a real pain in the behind daughter and now she has all of these grandchildren who don’t have the home life they deserve. So sad and what a very, very selfish person Nadya is. Sad, sad.

Did you see the look on Nadya’s face at the end of the film when she said, “Well, I guess I’ll just have to accept the help I’m offered.” She may end up a very wealthy woman from her decision to have these babies. I just hope that the money and goods she receives go to the children, not to altering her looks or towards her “celebrity” wardrobe.

The easy solution to this is a small section on the Invitro application that says, “HOW MANY DAMN KIDS DO YOU HAVE?” and immediately after that “HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU MAKE?” in addition to a substantial background check and social worker visit. Ta Da!!! Blame the system for lettin this clown buy sperm.

Very sad. This Gramma must be devastated. Losing their home, their retirement and potentially losing their grandchildren. Angela knows the right thing to do is put these innocent children in loving homes - but they are also her granchildren and that is hard to do. There are so many out there who would love to have children. I think Nadya counted on altering her looks to resemble Angelina, also having lots of kids, thinking it would pay off. Very selfish and ignorant. Poor children. Publicity is just keeping her going.

Here’s a excerpt:

“But in short order the public learned that Miracle Mom was also Single Mom, Unemployed Mom and Welfare Mom.”

Ms. Suleman, this is why a vast majority of people don’t “like” you.
( O _ o ) Get it?! Let me spell it out for you honey; You’re a “free loading, con artist, narcissistic, mentally unstable, manipulative person.”
Does it not bother you that millions of Americans are out of work due the recession? That some of those millions of Americans happen to be your fellow Californians? Also not to mention that the State of California is going broke? Los Angeles authorities are closing down two prisions because of the recession. As in they can no longer house 400 inmates due to the recession. And to top it all off, California tax payers are footing your medical bill of 1 million dollars. Doesn’t any of this not bother you?
( O _ o ) I’ve a question for you. How do you sleep at night?

tambria February 24, 2009, 7:41 PM

again I say why does the doctor not fit the bill and then some for his part in all this, you know he’s making money also from what he calls his success rate..come on dr help support this low life sponge and your action

Luis February 24, 2009, 7:43 PM

I would sue her and her doctor, for being such irresponsible persons,are both trying to break some Guiness world record on multiple births ? Very kool to live from donations, charity or even the government on behalf of your “poor sons” Nadya, you should be ashamed for your actions.


Dena February 24, 2009, 7:50 PM

The whole situation is ludicrous. The doctor who fertilized her should lose his license, Shild Prtoective Services should take her children away and let them all be adopted. The woman is obviously mentally unstable and has no business with any children—let alone 14. If she profits monetarily from all this it is a slap in the face to every average couple out there struggling to buy diapers for their newborns. How are these 8 any more special than 8 individual children with parents who need help?

Elizabeth February 24, 2009, 8:01 PM

This is the most ridiculous thing that I’ve ever heard/read about. It’s called “Survival of the Fittest” for a reason! If you can’t afford them, don’t freaking have them! I’m certainly not a cold-hearted b****, but I sure as hell won’t pay for someone else’s testtube babies! I’m with Tambria, the doctor that performed this invitro needs to foot the bill for these kids, to include childcare, so that lazy a$$ mom can get her butt to work!!! Angela, it’s called tough love, you gotta look out for you! Don’t lose your house for that crazy woman!

Elizabeth February 24, 2009, 8:12 PM

Oh yeah, one more thing, I would rather eat glass than watch “John and Kate Plus Eight” or that other one “17 and Counting”!! To me, it’s the same thing. They get all their stuff for free and from the networks that air their shows. How is that any different than this?!?!? I’m sick of the double standard. If they’re going to have all these damn kids, they need to start paying for everything! Why the HELL should they get a freaking free vacation to Hawaii and San Diego just because they have a litter??? It’s damn ridiculous!

Norm February 24, 2009, 8:20 PM

There was a young woman who lived in a shoe………

Heather February 24, 2009, 8:28 PM

She knew going under fertilization that there are possibilities of more than twins. But having all the other children before she shouldve just concieved one with a man. To have only had one but. If she doenst have anyone and wanted more children I guess there really isnt anything anyone can say about it. If she can afford the procedure and all the cosmetic things I’m sure she can save up to provide for her children. If not welfare can help. I know quite a few people who abuse welfare. When others can not recieve it. Its really a sad situation. I do think her mother needs to leave her alone about it. Those babies are human and when they get older they will not know what to think seeing all this online and everywhere about them being possible mistakes.

Amy February 24, 2009, 8:38 PM

I agree with the sentiments. Take her kids away Social Services, and re-home them. How good a mother can she be when she’s out seeking media attention and pawning them off on her mom.

Six neglected kids at home. Eight more in the Hospital to await the same fate.

And on top of it ALL OF US ARE PAYING FOR HER TO DO THIS! At least those of us in California are.

No one should give her money to keep these kids. The state shouldn’t. But maybe they should start imposing limits on children for those who live off the state. If you can support them yourselves have all you want. If you can’t then you shouldn’t.

Nadya and her doctors all need a slap and a wake up call. Selfish behavior all around in this scenario.

Peter February 24, 2009, 8:46 PM

What a shamless woman! The State should take away all the donations she received and/or going to receive to pay for her medical bills and get a court order to put all her children up for adoption. This woman is sick and is not a fit mom!!!!

Anon February 24, 2009, 8:47 PM

Wow, this video just shows that she is not only extremely selfish and egotistical, but also a SPOILED BRAT!!!
