Octomom Nadya Suleman had her eight kids on the Today show this morning… talk about an exhausting and chaotic interview!
Nadya Suleman’s eight kids (plus one of her older children, on hand to help wrangle) were running around the studio, with even Ann Curry scurrying behind them to keep them out of trouble.
Octomom talked about the daily struggle of being a mom to 14 kids, saying, “I don’t want any help,” adding, “I never wanted nannies.”
Suleman is a single mom to 14 kids, with the octuplets now 2-years-old and getting into everything… and potty training, too?
Raising that many kids by yourself isn’t easy, as Octomom comments, “I’m so happy…it’s harder, but I feel so much stronger.”
Nadya also addresses that In Touch magazine article, where she was quoted as saying she hates babies – not true, Suleman assures, “I never said one of those words” and she’s never considered suicide.
One of Suleman’s goals is to buy a new house (Today showed the heavy wear and tear on her house from all those kids, including holes in the walls!), saying, “I want to earn it. I want to work for it myself.”
To that end, Suleman is trying to earn money, having just secured “management” to help her secure paid gigs like boxing, appearances, and interviews.
Does Octomom have any “mother’s guilt,” Ann Curry asks? Suleman says she “can’t waste energy” worrying about “good or bad choices” and has to “accept the responsibility” of her choices.
As for her kids tearing up the Today show studio, Octomom assures that at home they “are incredibly behaved children,” blaming their behavior on just two hours of sleep.
No doubt, toddlers are curious and wrangling that many is no easy task, but I’m finding it hard to believe they are so incredibly behaved at home, given the mess that her house is!
Pretty shocking stuff, but is Suleman one the Worst Parents of the Decade?
