Octomom Now Off Welfare – But Does Anyone Care?
After what seemed like an eternity of media appearances, the hype surrounding Nadya Suleman
or ‘Octomom’ seemed to have finally died down. This media frenzy came after Suleman announced that
she had given birth to octuplets in January of 2009. This birth has been said to be the only the second
case of octuplets born alive in the United States. But, if you thought that this was a natural occurrence,
you would have been wrong.
Following a struggle to get pregnant, Suleman heavily pursued in-vitro fertilization despite losing
support from her former husband Marco Gutierrez. Much to her delight, or dismay (depending on how
you look at it), the in-vitro fertilization was successful thus leaving her with an 8 child birth and the
nickname Octomom. Following the birth, there was a lot of protest that said Suleman wouldn’t possibly
be able to support all 8 children on her own. In turn, this would then mean that the tax payers would
have to foot the bill of this massive pregnancy with Suleman filing for welfare. Of course this isn’t after
Suleman attempted to cash in on her children with a reality show. Unfortunately, after things didn’t pan
on, Suleman filed for welfare as mentioned above.
In an attempt to accrue as much cash as possible, Suleman sought out deals to pose semi nude in
various magazines. Unfortunately for her, her efforts proved unsuccessful when she filed for bankruptcy
in April on this year. But, a lowly bankruptcy filing hasn’t stopped Octomom from hustling when it was
made known that she would be not only take up stripping, but actually release a fully nude pornographic
film. Quite obviously, the ethics of this were brought into question but this didn’t stop Suleman from
Regardless of the ethics associated with her latest ventures, Octomom has announced that she’s made
enough to get off of welfare. Of course, how long she will remain off welfare thanks to her new adult
gigs remains in question. But, at least for the time being, tax payers no longer have to worry about
supporting the mother.
