Octomom Tells All to Dr. Phil

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

After inexplicably biting the hand that was offering to feed her babies, Nadya Suleman found herself in a familiar place--talking to Dr. Phil.

Addressing the TV doc and his guests, attorney Gloria Allred and Linda West Conforti and Jackie Peebles from Angels in Waiting USA, Nadya Suleman tried to explain why she fired the nurses that Angels had secured to care for her 14 children.

Dr. Phil must be rethinking his initial decision to help Nadya so that she could provide a safe environment for the octuplets to thrive in!He succeeded in bringing Nadya national attention,donations of money,furniture,baby necessities galore,and a pricey jacuzzi for Nadya to relax in,after a hard day of shopping,nails and live interviews! Dr. Phil forgot that one can’t help a narcissist, only ENABLE them. Nadya played helpless victim of circumstance (14 children)long enough to get Dr. Phil’s empathy and attention!Unknowingly,he gave her what she so deeply craves-fame,notoriety and material wealth.All for FREE.Dr. Phil played right into Nadya’s dillusional scheme and fantasies.Hopefully Dr. Phil now sees her for who and what she really is, and promptly reports the imminant danger all these children are in, being in Nadya’s incompadent care. He has the power and the connections, to prevent a tragedy from happening to these precious children! Dr. Phil-HURRY,BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!!

Dr Phil! Please, do not give her not even a minute on the phone. She is mentally ill and she should be locked out.She is not a victim. She knows what she is doing.That was her plan to become a star and make everybody pay for her kids.Can’t you see it.

I think from the begining allred has been negative for failure to nadya from the get go,One being on larry king to prime news discussing ehr wishes and only for teh babies,never once considering nadya and her feelings. Dr.Phill should fo kept his nose out of it,because of him an dhis pushing nadya whom felt obligated to take help from the aiw and now is being bashed all over teh net because she let them go,is unfair.I am a nanny,I have been one now for 23 yrs an dnevr,. never have i ever told a parent how to raise their children,i did my jobs,cooking ,cleaing,feedings,helping the parents out,never did i pass judgement no matter how i felt,itw asn’t my place.These women walked into this with an attitude already,take over, scared the poor woman with jokes ic an steal your baby or abduction remarks,of course nadyas scared,she may also have PPD,nobodies stopped to think about her and her feelings,I feel bad for her and allred has insulted alot of nanny’s and now has given them a bad name altogether.

I’m sorry, but I think it is unfair to post this without also posting Nadya’s side.

Barbara March 26, 2009, 2:48 PM

I believe that Nadya chose to have these babies as a money making scheme and Dr Phil fell for it. There are many more people out there who are more deserving of help who have been overlooked. I think it is about she got a job and helped support her babies and not be given all the free handouts which she has been given. Let the Dr. who knew what he was doing when he impregrenated her help support her.

birdsfly, who gives a $h1t about nadya’s side? you’re still trying to hear “her side of it” after being bombarded by countless and repeated lies from her for the past 2-3 months? she’s a compulsive liar and manipulator. she deserves any and all vitriol directed at her because she invited it.

bill March 26, 2009, 4:51 PM

birdsfly, not to mention that nadya already gave “her side” already a few days earlier than Angels’. you idiots will fall for anything.

jo, you’re a disgrace to all people who genuinely take care of children. “never once considering nadya and her feelings”???? are you talking about the woman, er animal, who disregards the well being of her children and the responsibility she holds to society? why don’t you tell that to her first before criticizing the public.

ENOUGH about this psycho loon of a woman. ENOUGH with the media attention. Just ENOUGH already!!!!

Anne March 26, 2009, 5:41 PM

I guess I’m the only one who thinks the fertility Dr is also the sperm donor. Hey, it’s happened before. I think that’s how she “afforded” all those treatments. Those poor little boys are all going to be bald and ugly someday.

This woman is an absolute Grifter! She should raise Cobra’s!!

Dr Drew said it best “Nadya is an ADDICT (addicted to celebrity) … a narcissist personality disorder … ” ALL she CARES about is HOW SHE LOOKS. She is consciously EXPLOITING the babies -and taxpayers. Living OFF public assistance HER ADULT LIFE, she has a LOT to answer for! ALL public funds SHE squandered on repeated IVF procedures, cosmetic surgeries, designer clothes, hair extensions, French manicure FAKE nails that are a breeding ground for germs AND a danger to sensitive preemie skin. Claiming over the years, she cannot work because of a BAD back appears bogus when viewing the photos Nadya sold of herself & her gargantuan belly extended by 100-lbs gained to carry the 8. No woman carrying that SIZED belly could even WALK -let alone cope with a ‘bad back.’
The state, federal, county and city authorities are DUTY BOUND to investigate misuse of public monies, code violations at the new house and abuse of police/fire dept personnel due to the media FRENZY she herself creates daily.
Rather than bonding with her new babies and spending extra time w/older kids to smooth the transition — OCTOMOM is out every SINGLE day SHOPPING & SPENDING on luxury items FOR HERSELF.
Until she REPAYS everything public funds provided, she has no right to expect people NOT TO BE OUTRAGED at her appalling conduct. ANYONE who has cost taxpayers MILLIONS OF DOLLARS from her DELIBERATE multiple births and everything it costs to raise the 6 older ones and now the new 8…
On what PLANET would anyone view this as natural? The fact she demonstrates ZERO GRATITUDE to anyone *(including taxpayers) is ALSO APPALLING. She acts as if SHE IS ENTITLED to draining precious welfare sources —and anyone DISAGREEING with her conduct is “biased against SINGLE MOTHERS.” (HER words).

The best thing Dr. Phil can do for Nadya at this point is CUT HER OFF COMPLETELY! Dr. Phil did everything he could and then some for Nadya!Then she kept what “she wanted” (the contributions and the baby goods)and then slammed the door, after she kicked the nurses from angels in waiting out.Annie is correct in stating that you can’t “help” a narcissist, only ENABLE them. Dr. Phil needs to change his phone number a.s.a.p. Nadya now thinks he’s her “SUGAR DADDY”. Now she’s had her undeserved “15 minutes of fame”, thanks to Dr. Phil’s compassion for these 14 children. Nadya now will be searching for the next buyer of her bs, until they see what she’s really all about “herself”. Lock your doors, here she comes!!!

Octomom is a disgrace. It’s a travesty authorities haven’t done enough to stop her swindling of public funds. While I feel sorry for the now helpless infants, if she is allowed to keep all 14 kids, she will be raising them with HER warped sense of values and obvious mental illness. Plus, the scorn and chaos she has invited into their lives will affect them. Society will not be the better for 14 individuals raised under her. Shame on her, her parents, and her doctors.

when is this topic of “news” going to go away? We are sick of OctoMom!!! Leave her to her misery, she has had enough attention and donations!

I am no fan of the decisions that Ms Sulemna has made. But what right did Gloria Allred have in inserting herself into this situation. She threaten from the being to have the babies taken away. As for the nurses they seemed hostile from the get go. Of course Nadia Suleman isn’t going to be home 24/7. She still has four babies in the hospital and 6 other children going to school and theraphy. So what if she went shopping at the Gap? Maybe it was for her 14 children.
Gloria is the Gestapo here. Dictating Ms Suleman every move.
Remember BEFORE Gloria decided to but in the social workers at the hospital were already involved. They were the ones to audit the house for child safety.

OK so, she has a million kids that the state(we) are supporting. Well, what about all the Hasidics that have the same amount of kids and are married but, we are still supporting them. How come nobody attacks them? These are people that clearly can’t afford their kids yet, they are in the maternity ward on yearly basis. Clearly, it is a choice for them as well.
