Shocking & Predictable: "Octomom" in Talks For Reality Show

Shocking & Predictable: "Octomom" in Talks For Reality Show

Nadya Suleman isn't going away anytime soon. The mother of 14, who already has the tabloid-ready nickname "Octomom," is in talks for a reality show to be broadcast either on TV or online, according to In Touch Weekly.

While America already has Jon & Kate Plus 8 and 17 Kids and Counting, Nadya's show has a new twist: it will be about parenting and the single mom's quest for love. Seriously? She has time to date?

While there's no you-must-have-your-life-together" requirement for reality TV (in fact I think it's the exact opposite), chronicling this woman's life for entertainment purposes just sounds depressing. Still I can't think of many people who wouldn't feel better about their life situation after watching this rumored show. I guess we need that in these tough times?

I'd like to think everyone is a little Octomomed out at this point. But clearly Nadya Suleman needs the money, and the American audience seems willing to watch so she can get paid.

The duggars are a perfectly natural loving family and I admire them greatly JOn and kate, not so much Octomom? needs to go away.

"The duggars believe birth control in wrong and God blesses them with the number of children he desires them to have. Whether you agree with that plan or not, it is understandable" I actually don't understand this at all. I don't understand the thinking that you will stop having babies when god thinks it's time, that seems crazy to me. With that said, I think Octomom is a whack job too. But if a reality show will provide those kids with food, shelter, and clothing, why not?

That pic is hilarious. NS showed signs of mental issues when she had plastic surgery to like Angelina Jolie. She has esteem issues that cause her to act irrationally and out of character. I don't watch any of these shows because I prefer not to watch frustrated parents and gaggles of children running around. It would give me nightmares.

I'm very intrigued... Yet, I think I might feel bad for watching it because I may be just supporting her cause - babies for fame.

Every time I think about the families with a lot of kids at one time, I think about what my mom says when she hears about stuff like this--"They remind me of all the little piglets on my farm growing up. People shouldn't try to be like pigs!" Personally, I don't have much of an opinion, but I always think of this: ...and I giggle.

I think Jon and Kate are sane... I've watched a few of their shows and I think they are quite funny. Im just hoping the reality show with octomom is a rumor :please:

I think she's irresponsible for doing what she's done. I don't know if she's crazy or not. I'm not watching the program if it does become a show.

Actually, dm8bri, I think you're right.
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 8 years
dm, I could agree about the duggars in that situation, but Jon and Kate not so much.
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 8 years
oh, maybe it is a grandkid. The oldest is married now.

At the risk of being jumped, I'm going to say that I think all of them could draw questions of being crazy - you'd have to be a little bit to want to raise (at least partially with all the extra help) that many kids. And, none of us can really diagnose them as clinically crazy, anyway. I won't be watching Octomom, nor any of the other hyper-reproductive shows mostly because I think they're annoying and irresponsible. But no one else needs to share my opinion.

No expert opinion here. Doesn't take an expert to see that NS is crazy.

I agree Jon & Kate is probably one of the few family friendly shows these days. I haven't watched in a long time. I have only watched one or two of the Duggars' shows. They seem like a good family, but I agree, they do rely on the older kids too much. Maybe their big announcement is that grandkids are on the way.

One good thing about the Duggars and Jon and Kate is that it has really put how "busy" I think I am into perspective which has really helped adjusting to more than one kiddo.

I think she is well into her 40's strange. When she had her 15 she was considered high risk because of her age. Watched that show last night. They were all so young.

Jon dishes it back as good as he gets it. I have seen just about every episode. I started watching in the hospital and my daughter fell in love with it so we started recording it. It is one of the only shows out right now that we can have on with her in the room. Shows that used to be ok, i.e. no cussing etc, have added gratuitous language. It's getting frustrating. That and at three o'clock in the afternoon on a Sunday a couple of weeks ago on network tv a condom commercial came on followed by a KY one.

I don't think Kate is crazy. I just think she treats Jon like a dog too often. Duggar Mom is getting too old. She well into her 40s isn't she?
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 8 years
She is getting to the point where it is dangerous to she and a baby at her age.
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 8 years
I don't think Kate is crazy at all. She is organized and a neat freak, does that make you crazy? You would have to be. When I see that show, I see two people who are really trying to give their kids a normal life. And the cameras aren't on all the time. They come and film on average once a week or every two weeks for a specific pre planned event. It isn't like the Real World on MTV. The Duggars, on the other hand, have more issues in my opinion. The older kids end up doing way to much of the parenting and my feminist side gets irked quite a bit sometimes. I like a lot about how sweet the kids are, etc, but it goes to far sometimes. But, to each their own. Octomom is just out of line though and so is the doctor who impregnated her. There is just so much wrong with her situation.
