Nadya Suleman, aka Octomom, got a reality check from Suze Orman on yesterday’s The Oprah Winfrey Show.
The 35-year-old mother of 14 children owes $450,000 in mortgage payments on her home in La Hambra.
Financial guru Orman took Octomom to task. “Why, when you couldn’t afford the six kids to begin with, would you even have thought about having one more kid, let alone eight more kids?”
It was 2009 when Nadya, a single mother-of-six who was on welfare, announced that?she was expecting octuplets. Nadya understood the financial hardships she faced but says she expanded her family out of an emotional need.
“I’m looking desperately outside myself and using an inappropriate filler to fill something that I should be filling from within,” said the controversial mother.
Nadya agreed with Oprah’s statement that she is addicted to having babies. “I still ask myself why,” Nadya said.
Do you feel sympathetic toward Octomom?
