Octomom Admits Welfare Was Her Plan

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Nadya Suleman finally admits that she would have been on welfare if Dr. Phil wouldn't have stepped in and helped.

Nadya Suleman

"Had I not been offered a couple of little opportunities to secure some resources for them, I would have been forced to get government assistance until I was completed with school," she tells RadarOnline.com. "And then I would have been forced to work I don't know how many hours a day to support them as a counselor."

In another twist, Radar also reports that Suleman has fired Angels in Waiting, the non-profit that was brought in by attorney Gloria Allred to assist in the care of the infants. We called Allred for comment, but have not heard back yet. Suleman's attorney Jeff Czech confirms teh firing, saying the relationship between Suleman and the nurses started off badly because Allred publicly filed a complaint against her with the Los Angeles County Department of Children's Services.

What do you think about her belated confession?

Unfortunately it is not HER LIFE because she depends on OUR MONEY when she received welfare for 12 kids.

i cannot believe how people can be so mean these babies are here there is nothing that can be done to change things shouldnt we be more focused on her raising these babies and that theyre taking care of. its not my place to judge her even if i dont agree with her. we as people should have more respect than that dont you think her other children hear these things that people are saying have respect for the kids.

Gee…”forced to work” like the rest of us parents?? Welcome to reality Nadya!! They don’t pay for themselves ( unless you have IVF for 8 at a time I guess!)

And for debbie who posted “it’s her life”- you are correct…UNTIL money starts coming out of working California families paychecks to support them. Then it is their business!!

No one is biased against big families…just against those who push out babies knowing well ahead of time that they cannot afford them…who use babies as a meal ticket at taxpayer expense.

Welfare is there for those who REALLY need it..it is those who take advantage of and abuse it that we are biased against.

I am glad that you had welfare to fall back on when you needed it. But if people continue to abuse it like Nadya did and will, there will be no more money left and services are cut for those who really NEED it.

shouldnt she be allowed to take her opptunties like the rest of them like jon and kate plus eight ,the duggars and table for twelve your not going to try and tell me that they dont get anything for their shows arent they exploiting their children as well come on people lets be fair

QuattuordecimMom(TM) isn’t really a mom at all,she’s a billboard for some cell phone company. The next big news is where Agela “outs” the SpermDaddy(TM) to get hime to take part of the brood off their hands and she keeps the older 6.

“I wish that everybody would quit blasting this poor woman. BTW, I have accepted welfare before when I was a single mom. There are a lot of stipulations put on welfare and you don’t really get enough to even live on… After a certain amount of time you are cut off if you don’t go to work. My grandparents had 10 brothers and sisters a piece. When did everyone get so biased against big families? Don’t judge anyone until you have been in their shoes.
- mel”

That’s the point Mel. You aren’t supposed to live off welfare. It’s supposed to be a short term solution to assist people to become more self sufficient. Where do all you people think this money is coming from?? There is no government money tree! It comes out of the paychecks of working parents, single people, and senoirs who themselves are trying to get by and support their own selves and families!! No one is biased against big families. They are upset while struggling to clothe/feed/house their own children, people continue to breed who cant afford to then beg for money!

“You morons need to get a life. You couldn’t possibly think your tax dollars are paying her bills. Millions of americans pay taxes. Your portion is probably about three cents. Get passionate about something that is REALLY affecting YOU. Octomommy’s bad choices have absoulutrly no bearing on YOUR life. You don’t know her personally. If she is a bad mommy its between her and child protective services. GET A LIFE
- ya girl”

Spoken like someone who doesn’t pay taxes themself……

I knew this was going to happen. Suleman is not going to let anyone in that house that is a mandated reporter of child abuse. Angels in Waiting was on alert for potential abuse problems. So why deal with them and Allred when Suleman had already gotten an offer for free childcare from a nanny service in Whittier called Merry Poppins To Order.

Surely, Octomom would rather use this free help and get the donations for herself, Angels In Waiting wanted all sorts of donations, far more than what was really necessary. Octomom admitted to not paying her current babysitter overtime, saying the lady would work 12 hours a day. Bet she’s doing the same with these current nannies.

WOW… I am so glad to see some intellegent reasoning about this nut. Now that she fired her safety net to keep these children, what is she gonna do next ? Have Dr.Drew come in now and help her ? What else can she sell ? The poopy diapers from the babies? And the fact she wants to be a counselor? Who would hire her? You have to show you have the common sense given to a gnat… and I have serious doubts she can muster that and sound sane.

None of this is terrible surprising…

How can anyone let this woman attempt to raise 14 kids?

If an umemployed single mom with six kids tried to adopt a just one child, they would never allow it. Why should an obviously insane woman be allowed to take these children home? The multitudes of people who will be needed to provide just the basics to these babies for the next couple of years is astounding when you think about it; the sheer numbers are staggering — how many bottles a day? How many minutes to consume a bottle? Eight babies eating every three hours — 64 bottles a day, at maybe thirty minutes to consume each one — you’d need one person around the clock just to feed them, probably another just to change diapers…hell, you’d need a new room on your house just to hold one WEEK’S worth of diapers alone. In today’s economy where people are GIVING UP THEIR CHILDREN because they can’t afford to feed them — who in their right mind would add eight new mouths to an already large family? If she is not fulfilled as a mother with six kids, eight more is NOT going to help her…

How selfish this woman is to put her own insane need to accumulate children over the quality of life not only her existing family will have but these poor eight babies will have. There are not enough hours in a day for one mom to give 14 children the attention they truly need to thrive and become well adjusted adults.
How many will she have next time, an even dozen?

Mom of Five March 23, 2009, 11:18 PM

If she really loves these children she would want them to be raised in loving homes with parents who can provide for them emmotionally and physically. Unfortunately she (as their biological mom) can not. Give these kid a chance and let other families adopt them. She can not even meet their basic needs!

She needs to take the money from her little opportunities and pay the hospital bills and stop asking for public donations to support her kids instead of paying 500K for a house.

nathan March 23, 2009, 11:31 PM

Just another drain on society. Does anyone really believe the kids will be hard working tax payers or another set of leeches on society. Suppose the apple doesn’t fall to far from the tree in her case
