Octuplets in California (8 would be awful)


A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

Head of volunteer nursing group says Octomom doesn't care about her children, and more. Octomom fires back by firing the volunteer nursing group, says they bring a negative energy to her home.

Went on a $1500 clothes-shopping spree for herself, and also came out today that she was, surprise, surprise, a stripper.

With respect, guru....
I think that is a silly observation about strippers. What, are they all stupid,
immoral, unworthy? What an unhealthy stereotype that is, in my opinion.
If there were no paying clientele, there would be no strippers, obviously.

But even if she does really love kids, that's the same thing said by demented women who steal children from hospital nurseries.

Intent doesn't excuse actions.

I think the folks pointing to an unhealthy identification with Angelina Jolie are closest to hitting the mark here.

Octomom finally figures out: "I've screwed up my life".

Yeah, she screwed up, all right, but for one reason that absolutely no one has ever mentioned: She wanted a WR! What better way for her to get instant fame than to try and break the WR for a single birth to multiple infants, and have those babies survive longer than any other?

From what I've read and heard, she took fertility drugs without end! Why else would she do that if she weren't intent on doing something that would put her in the spotlight in a big way? It was all to tie or break the WR for multiple births, with all the babies surviving for at least a year. Seven was the record beforehand.

Of the women who have given birth to octuplets before Nadya Suleman, not all of their children survived beyond a month. Nadya's children are the first to survive that long and then some, but I think she was actually aiming for 9, or even 10 (which would have been a first), regardless of the possibility that she might have lost one or more of her babies. Three women each had 9, but none of the babies survived.

This is going to sound amusing, in a situation that is really no laughing matter, but if she was using fertility drugs to have at least 8 babies at once, doesn't that count as a performance-enhancing situation, which should technically disqualify her from Guinness?

And all because she wanted the WR for longest-surviving octuplets, or nonuplets. She thought a WR alone would launch her into stardom. Too bad she was hardly in a financial position to even think about having more children. And that is why she has earned nothing but ridicule. So much for the WR.

Octomom's doc booted from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, which does not affect his ability to practice 'medicine'.

She is apparently continuing her family tradition.
