When the recently broke "Octomom," Nadya Suleman, filed for bankruptcy, nobody was particularly surprised. But when she said she would consider entering the adult film industry to pay her bills, eyebrows were raised. As she told Showbiz Tonight, "If it's a job, and it's a well-paying job, and it's gonna allow me to get us out of here and into a very safe, huge home that (the kids) deserve, I'm gonna do it."
She wouldn't be the first mom to work in the porn industry. Earlier this week, adult film star Alana Evans appeared on the Dr. Drew show to discuss the balance between her controversial line of work and raising her family. She said:
It's definitely a juggling act. The real reason why I entered the industry was to take care of my family and make money for my kids. It gave me a way to be with my son, to be with him every day after school, except for the 4-5 days, at most, per month that I worked.
On the other end of the spectrum is former porn star Jenna Jameson, who sold her $30 million empire to Playboy back in 2006, and is now raising her twin boys with husband Tito Ortiz. "I really don't think I need to say, 'Mommy was a porn star,'" Jameson told W Magazine back in 2010. "I feel like they're going to know me and think, 'Mommy loved us so much that she quit everything and made us her job.'" What do you think?
