Octomom To Undergo Financial Intervention On ‘Oprah’

LA HABRA (AP) — With the help of Oprah Winfrey, “Octomom” Nadya Suleman is about to undergo a financial

Suleman is scheduled to get a money makeover Friday on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” with personal finance expert Suze Orman.

Suleman already had six children when she gave birth to octuplets in January 2009 and has since struggled to pay her bills.

Her financial troubles have been widely publicized as have threats of eviction from her Southern California home.

Suleman has a $4,000 mortgage payment due on Feb. 1 and is months overdue on a $450,000 balloon payment.

Steven Hirsch, co-founder of adult film company Vivid Entertainment, has offered to pay her February mortgage while he considers buying the La Habra home. There has been no comment from Suleman on the offer.

    What intervention, short of handing her some free money? It’s not like she has ANY money for there to be an intervention. Why does Ms Suleman continue to think that by appearing on television, someone will take notice of her plight and will somehow rescue her–albeit financially.
    Ms Suleman should stop crying about her situation and do something about it: get a job and stop playing the accidental victim. Didn’t she say she was college prepared?

    I completely agree with the previous poster. I wish she would stop getting attention from those willing to pay for her appearance (assuming she’s getting paid for those appearances) in the media, and teach her a hard lesson. Suze Orman isn’t going to tell her anything she doesn’t already know, and other than welfare and her kids disability checks, she has no money that she is earning. What is she going to be taught? She’s just there for the airtime. Please rescue the kids and babies, and teach her how to be an ethical responsible person, instead of living off of everyone else.

    I’m suing CBS. I sat down to eat breakfast in front of the ‘puter this morning and saw her picture posted. I threw up all over the keyboard & almost choked to death. Thanks CBS.

    Lovely; she gets recurring 15 minutes of fame for doing noting more than throwing an occasional litter and acting like trailer trash in her affairs. What a great model for humanity.

    If this was any one else, the would be out on the rearend. Why is she so special. The fact that she has 14 children is not any reason for fame. the children should be taken into protective custody until and unless she is able to support herself.

  • Enough already

    Why the heck do people keep bailing her out? Don’t say it’s for the welfare of the children because the kids would be better off with people that understand how to be responsible. Something that she obviously doesn’t get and never will because folks like Dr. Phil and Oprah keep interceding on “her” behalf for ratings.

      As far as Steven Hirsch is concerned, I don’t think he’s bailing her out, he is most likely offering her a job as a porn actress. He not only will gain a film star, but also a new location to shoot his movies.

    Can I get some financial intervention as well??? I had 5 children, 2 of whom are serving our wonderful country in the military. I am losing my house due to the inability to continue making high mortgage payments, since my husbands business became slow. We are decent, law abiding citizens that have had and raised children we could afford. So why is it that this women who couldn’t afford the first 6, is now reaping such great monetary rewards for being an idiot and having 8 more! There is something definitely wrong with society when people like Oprah will showcase her as if she were an example to someone. Please I beg, do not watch the show, maybe then they will stop pushing her on all of us. As it is we are paying her out of our hard earned money through our taxes, do we really want to see such a loser. I say NO!

    Hey Oprah!
    Where’s my bailout? I am out of work, but i will work hard if there is an opportunity. I have not been living on tax dollars. I am struggeling to pay my rent. I did not have children I can not afford to support. I am not spending what money I do have, on Lattes and tattoos….Come on,,, I need a help too!!

  • Just Say No

    According the a clip I saw of the interview, Ms Suleman does not want to get rich, she wants to simply be happy in her “dilapidated” van.

    Then why is she constantly seeking television opportunities? The story has not changed.
    Tell us then, Ms Suleman, what it is that you hope to accomplish by inserting yourself in the
    limelight? Shouldn’t you be more worried about making your mortgage, taking care of your 14 kids versus making ridiculous television appearances to discuss your supposed happiness at being broke. I don’t believe for a second that you are sincere…NOBODY likes to
    be broke, particualrly when you have 14 mouths to feed!
