Octomom Nadya Suleman has finally taken the plunge and inked a deal to star in a new reality television show to star her and her 14 children. Since the Octomom first started selling out her children to the media, it was pretty much a foregone conclusion that eventually she would end up exploiting them in a TV series.
According to court documents filed in Los Angeles on Friday, each of Sulemanâ€™s 14 children will earn $250 a day to star in the new reality show set to begin taping in September. The show will be produced by Eyeworks, the company behind The Biggest Loser and Breaking Bonaduce. Octomomâ€™s kids will be subjected to approximately 36 days of shooting during the first year and receive around $125,000 for having their private lives splashed across national television. Fifteen percent of the childrenâ€™s earnings will go into a trust they can access when they turn 18, as required by California law. Which means mom Nadya Suleman will at least only be able to piss away 85 percent of the money she earns by depriving her kids of a real childhood.
Back in April, Nadya Sulemanâ€™s lawyer told UsMagazine.com that the Octomom was interested in taping a â€œnot so intrusiveâ€ television series to â€œmake a little income for herself.â€ Considering that Suleman has spent most of her life popping out babies in some obsessive narcissistic need to populate the world with her questionable genetics, itâ€™s not like she has much else in the way of marketable skills.
Way back before the in vitro fertilization baby horde began, Suleman worked as a psychiatric technician, though most of her time was spent filing workerâ€™s compensation claims against the hospital â€“ for a whopping total of about $167,000 in benefits. She did manage to acquire a Bachelor of Science in 2006, but dropped out of a masterâ€™s degree program in 2008. Suleman also worked as a stripper in the past, though she prefers to avoid that particular discussion topic. In short, Suleman has basically succeeded never having a real job for the vast majority of her life.
Once Suleman squirted out 8 kids in one go, however, she had a great new excuse not to have to work for a living. Fame. Suleman has spent most of her time since the birth of her octuplets trying to figure out the best ways she can cash in on her dubious celebrity status in an effort to continue avoiding becoming a responsible, hard-working adult. Suleman, of course, claims she is â€œnot capitalizingâ€ on her kids. â€œIâ€™m using every resource I can secure to provide for my children,â€ the Octomom told UsMagazine.com. â€œWhat else am I gonnaâ€™ do?â€
We have a suggestion, Nadya. Let your children grow up in the peace and anonymity any child should have the right to enjoy and get a real f*cking job.
