Nadya Suleman’s lawyer confirms her reality show is in the works

Despite telling Life & Style in an interview that just came out that she is “absolutely not” doing a reality show, has “no interest in being famous” and would “love to vanish from the public eye,” octuplet mom Nadya Suleman is moving ahead with plans for a reality show, according to her lawyer. Octomom’s legal representative spoke to People Magazine and said it’s just a way to keep his client off of welfare.

She’s already made tens of thousands from photo licensing, interviews and video diaries and has been seen out shopping for thousands worth of new clothes and makeup. Her new home is worth 1/2 a million dollars and she had a jacuzzi tub installed in her bedroom, but she still said yesterday that she was considering applying for WIC in order to help pay for the $2,000 a month it would cost for baby formula for her octuplets. Obviously she thinks she can waste her own money on whatever she wants and let the taxpayers figure out how to provide formula, food and healthcare for her children. In the mean time she’s going to cash in with a reality show. We’ll soon get to see Suleman try to come across as a competent mother and fail miserably:

Those close to Suleman say she and her attorney, Jeffery Czech, met over the past week with four production companies and are due to meet in the next few days with executives at an undisclosed network.

Czech confirms that he and Suleman have conferred with producers to hear their ideas – and that although Suleman is tired of TV cameras and protective of her children’s privacy, she also wants to ensure she has enough money to care for them without public assistance.

Suleman has admittedly been on food stamps in the past, and told the Whittier Daily News this week that she was considering applying for federal WIC aid. Czech says Suleman doesn’t have health insurance and that all medical costs associated with delivering the octuplets on Jan. 26 were funded by taxpayers through state Medi-Cal.

“There’s some decisions for her to make over the next few days. I think she’s heard enough,” Czech tells PEOPLE. “Like anyone else, she wants to be portrayed in a positive light and she feels she needs to do something to get her side out.”

He says the ideas they’ve heard are similar – producers want to follow the same pattern of other reality shows, with episodes chronicling such themes as Suleman learning to drive a 14-passenger van, going on a date or having a big family Thanksgiving or Christmas.

He says that although a deal could be signed within the next couple of weeks, production would not start until the babies are a little older. So far, seven of the eight octuplets have come home, and Suleman goes to the hospital every day to visit Jonah, who at 4 lbs., 6 oz., is still too small to be released.

“For the most part, the idea is generally to follow her and her family around when the babies get a little older,” Czech says, adding that the amount of money Suleman would earn, and how long the show runs for, would depend upon the ratings.

[From People]

Yesterday JayBird covered a story in which Suleman claimed that the Angels in Waiting agency was trying to set her up and never intended to help with her babies. She said they already had foster families set up for the children and were hoping to snatch the newborns from her all along. She may have been telling the truth, but with the amount of baldfaced lies this woman tells it’s not like many people feel they can trust her.

People say they will boycott this woman, and a lot will, but tons of people will watch this show of morbid curiosity, even if they can’t stand her. I know I would watch this just to see what a trainwreck she is. She’s going to try to keep it together for the cameras but her true colors will show. She can’t even lie convincingly and she’s had plenty of practice.

Here’s Suleman shopping at Toys ‘R Us on 3/16/09. She told Radar she had to buy all new toys for her kids because the old ones were dirty and unsafe for the newborns. Yeah, right

    *shudder* there are no words for the travesty of this woman.

  2. Wow says:

    Awh man! I was giving the lady the benefit of the doubt, but she did obviously lie about the reality show. I still don’t blame her for trying to make her own money and support her kids, but why lie about the reality tv show when she knew she was pursuing it. The news would eventually come out about it being a go, so why lie about not even considering it.

  3. Gistine says:

    I would kick her square in the puss except I’d like to see my foot again.

    Me hates.

  4. DivaStar says:

    I don’t know any newborns that play with toys…

  5. Ryo says:

    What a worthless lying bitch. I hope it falls through.

    I must confess that I am not well versed in mental/emotional disorders so I am forming an opinion based on education in that realm of science… that being said is there some sort of wonder drug for a wackadoodle pathological liar? Because I would be more than happy to contribute to an ‘Alms for the Dotty Octomoms Psych Meds’ drive.

  7. TaylorB says:

    Oops, typo, I meant to write ‘based on no education’ in that realm.

    Mea Culpa.

  8. Debbi says:

    Figured out what the lips remind me of – that is definitely the joker’s smile in pic at top.

  9. lrm says:

    Totally! fundraising for meds for the crazy octo lady! I’m all for it.
    She’s so flippin’ nutty. I shouldn’t even post here-just fueling the fire.
    that show,i won’t watch it,cuz i dont have a t.v. and won’t add such toxins to my mind,even if i did…[such as watching her personality disorder]…but that show…whew-it’s going to be hilarious and mortifying at the same time,i predict.

  10. Chiara says:

    From the network that brings you the Osborne’s and ANS … America’s next product.

  11. Ggirl says:

    What is amazing to me is that she looks more natural and in her element when she is handling merchandise rather than children…

  12. SolitaryAngel says:

    Gistine, you’ve made my day and caused me to spit Coke all over my monitor! It’s worth it……THANKS for the laugh–I really needed it.

  13. lisa says:

    I despise this excuse for a woman. She is a disgusting human being.

  14. tasteT says:

    @Gistine Hilarious, I hollered loud, lucky I am at home.

    Seeeeeeee all of that damn lying!!!
    pycho diaper lips!

    Well like I said before, I will make sure to send out my mass emails to boycott the station, I have some people here that are on board to send out emails.

    I mean, one show is bad–but who in the hell wants to see that face every damn week..

    She is creepy and crazy..and that damn squealy voice.

    Everyone have a nice weekend

  15. Eileen Yover says:

    So if we follow the pattern she has set so far, take everything that comes out of her mouth and believe the opposite. “I do not plan on taking government assistant” Uhhh yeah. “I will not use my babies for fame” Mmmm hmmm. “I will use my grants for school” Oh ok. “I will not do a reality program.” Gotcha!

  16. sandy says:

    She is DISGUSTING, people HATE her and will not watch this CR*P! The show won’t last more than a season, they might get a few weeks of big numbers because of the “trainwreck-effect” and then it’ll be O-V-E-R.

  17. lisa says:

    Where is CPS? Why are they not looking into her when she is out shopping 24 hours a day without those babies?

  18. Duggie of SoCal says:

    If you are serious about boycotting her reality show, logon to http://www.thepetitionsite.com and and add your signature to the petition to boycott her show.

    This show has got to be a joke. Will it be an audience participation show? Can we vote after each episode as to whether she can keep the kids or not?

  19. Vibius says:

    I would rather her be on a reality show. Then she wouldnt be able to qualify for any government assistance. Let some stupid company pay her via the commercial slots during the show.

  20. Mairead says:

    Good lord – regular 20minute slots with the voice that would cut glass.

    EDIT… and YAY for the return of our beloved “Edit” :D

  21. MB says:

    Duggie–the show could be like “Survivor”, only every week the audience votes on a winner who gets to leave and live with normal people. Any ideas for a show name?

  22. DH says:

    Surely the proposed reality show will fail. I can only hope. The really interesting thing is that how can this woman that is making thousands off her children qualify for WIC? I’m confused. If the government issues WIC for her there is something terribly wrong.

  23. Pookie BD says:

    If her lips are moving she’s lying. OctoWhore is so mental she can’t keep her stories straight. And what kind of loving mom would allow a camera crew in with premature babies. Talk about filth! Oh but wait maybe if she’s dumb enough to do that Child Protective Services would have a valid excuse. We can only hope.

  24. Aleksa says:

    Gosh, I feel utterly lucky for not being able to watch american T.V.!

  25. the original kate says:

    “Me hates.”

    gistine,yeah – me hates, too.

  26. gg says:

    Quaaaaack, your roots are showing!!

  27. anastasiabeaverhausen says:

    Not only am I never watching any stupid show of hers, I really wish everyone would ignore her. Seriously.

  28. Gistine says:

    @Solitary and TasteT, YW! :o )

  29. Amy says:

    I’m assuming she’s only *participating* in a reality show, not starring in one. She’d be a shoe-in for the Pete Burns Lookalike Hour.

  30. Marianne says:

    Man, I wish people would stop giving attention to this woman. She’s just some chick who has many kids. What of it? She’s not important, interesting or relevant in any way. Not even in the Britney-Lindsay-Paris trainwreck way. She’s just bland and mentally disturbed. I don’t see why the press and the audience is so enthralled with her. Or with that other woman, Jade Goody, that died recently.

  31. heh-heh says:

    The authorities must put an end to this woman’s plans to exploit those kids — especially at taxpayer expense (WIC, etc). Otherwise a precedent will be set and more moms will OD on fertility drugs.

    Deca-Mom, anyone?

  32. Duggie of SoCal says:

    All the moaning and groaning on this blog is not going to get you anywhere. None of us has the authority to do anything about it. But we can complain to our congressmen. I found the website for the State Representative of the 33rd Assembly District Sam Blakeslee. Just type in Sam Blakeslee California on your search line and he has a very nice site for emailing your complaints. If he receives enough email asking that he look into the fraud that this woman is committing, he will be compelled to follow up. I know that this tactic works because I have used it before and within three weeks, I had my response. Remember these people are hired by the taxpayer and can be fired by the taxpayer. Ask Grey Davis if this is true. He pictured himself on the highway to the presidency and we California voters said NO WAY and recalled his butt out of office.

    Another tactic is to logon to http://www.thepetitionsite.com and search for Nadya Suleman. There are several petitions addressing her. Pick all that you would like to sign. The one that addresses future Octomoms is:

    Nadya Suleman’s Freedom From Welfare Petition
    The overall goal of this petition is inform our government in our displeasure of the spending of our hard-earned tax dollars on unfit welfare recipients. The deliberate birth of octuplets to an unmarried, unemployed female is going to cost huge taxpayer dollars for child care, food stamps, housing, etc. and a huge burden on the state of California, which is already in economic turmoil. This is an extreme case, however, welfare fraud runs ramped in our nation and must be stifled immediately….especially in these troubled economic times. I propose that we come together as one voice and stop this wasteful spending. The following items should be sent to our Nation’s Capitol to be addressed and reformed: (The site continues to lists the complaints).

    And NurseM, knock it off, you come from Somerset, Wisconsin. How do you know how we Californians feel. We have:
    the highest unemployment in the nation \
    Initiatives to be voted on May 19 which will raise each family’s taxes by $1,100 per year. We‘ve been warned by Arnold, if we don‘t vote Yes, the state will be bankrupt. Now his head is on a stick. You must be a Californian to enjoy the joke.
    God only knows how many layoffs are pending for our Teachers, Firemen and Police
    public school class sizes increasing to 45 (that’s why her kids go to private schools)
    the closing of our emergency rooms due to welfare fraud and illegal immigration.
    and the list goes on and on and on It’s not good.

    And then we have Octomom, committing welfare fraud left and right and flaunting it in our faces with her designer shoes, sunglasses and clothing. Even Kim Kardashian complained on another website that Nadya was wearing her Jimmy Choo sunglasses. And none of our state agencies seem to want to investigate her. It’s as if she and her family have diplomatic protection (her Dad is Iraqi). What a slap in the face to us Californian taxpayers. This is our frustration.

  33. tasteT says:

    Thank you Duggie!!! I will follow up as soon as I am done here AND ill pass the info on.

    FYI

    I read in a maazine that Octopussy’s sunglasses that she wears ae Jimmy Choo sunglasses…which range from $150-300

    Now is it still about “let her raise money for her children?”

    This came up because Kim Kardashian has the same glasses and people were teasing Kim about it. There is a pic side by side..

    “Jimmy Choo” Sunglasses, wow I don’t have kids and would not buy those trendy HUGE sunglasses.

    You think Jimmy Choo asked her to wear them??? nope, she used her exploitation
    money from her babies….
