Octomom Gets TV Show

The Southern California woman who gave birth to the world's longest-surviving set of octuplets has reportedly signed a deal to star in a reality television series.

People magazine reported Sunday on its Web site that Nadya Suleman has agreed to be filmed by a British production company. Suleman gave birth to the six boys and two girls in January and also has six other children.

Suleman lawyer Jeff Czech (CHEK') says production company Eyeworks hasn't yet sold the proposed show to any American television network and plans to air the series on British TV.

He says film crews will not follow Suleman and her children 24 hours a day, but will document birthdays and special family events.

He didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press.

    Just look on the bright side, maybe she will make enough money that her kids can get off social security and she can stop drawing workers comp. Its all about money!!!!!!! Her kids are her ticket to the good life. She is useless, worthless, bad example to her kids, and leach on society.

    I will not watch any show that has this sorry excuse for a mother perform. I will not purchase any item from a company that supplies items or services to this octostupid.

    With any luck, this show will be as "popular" as that one about the cavemen from the Geico commercials...and suffer the same fate. One can only hope.

    Welcome too the USA, where you get rewarded for being stupid, lazy and worthless.

    If this means she will get off welfare and workers compensation let her do it. Then when the show fails don,t let her get back on workers comp or welfare. If you take the kids from her she will be just another worthless mother. She can,t take care of her self much less the childern.

    Well folks if this story makes you feel fed up perhaps the media should start to have the courage to adress the issue of teen pregnancy here in Eastern NC. We have so many 12-18 year old moms in our Junior High and High Schools-many of whom by the age of 24 will have several little ones being cared for by exhausted Grandmothers. It's not a pretty story but it's the truth and a terrible problem. Lack of prenatal care being obtained as well as birth control after the pregnancies, both of which are done by any area health department. We have a national epidemic of young girls with no self esteem or self worth. I'd like to see this worsening issue get all the press that the Octomom has gotten!

    Chris, Being worthless these days does pay off and we can all thank obama and his administration for making them even lazier, and others for becoming lazy.

    What is the name of the show.. "Welfare gone wild"?? I find it incredible that ignorant people that use and abuse the system somehow hit it "big". I guess being worthless does pay off over time!

    Great.....not another show. Nobody cares. She's a gold digger and wants her fame and fortune. I definitely won't be watching this show at all.
