Sorry, Octomom Nadya Suleman and her Angelina-inspired lips are surely pouting now. She’s being taken to court by celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred for allegedly exploiting her kids.
Not that we’re surprised. Allred is no doubt still smarting over Suleman’s decision to can the nannies Allred arranged to help out for free, via Angels in Waiting. Then there are those pesky abuse allegations.
You know – after she said she hated the name and you couldn’t pay her to put her family in the public eye?
Allred is representing Paul Peterson, a child actor turned child advocate, and together they’re alleging the Suleman kids’ financial interests need to be protected as Nadya earns money off of them. They’re also citing concerns about child labor laws, pointing to an almost two-hour span when the infants were videotaped in March, the night they came home from the hospital, for Radar.
Although I’m with most of America in thinking this woman is nutty as a fruitcake, I am going to step up on this one and say Allred needs to make it clear why she’s doing this. Is anyone suing Jon and Kate Gosselin to make sure funds from Jon and Kate Plus 8 are being set aside for their eight kids? How about Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar? Neither of those couples would be raking in the dough without the kids either, but it can be argued that the parents are using the money to provide for their kids (Jon and Kate provide for their kids in a million dollar home thanks to their show).
Or maybe Octomom is just an easy mark? A woman who is obviously desperate for money (among other things). A woman who doesn’t have a partner to help her fight back (her fault there, I know, I know). A woman who is so money hungry it isn’t even funny. She’s her own worst enemy, folks. Does she really need Gloria Allred going after her?
