christine3: I think Nadya is an amazing woman, way above average intelligence.
Is this the woman who can't afford to feed her children and has been revealed to be letting her children go around dirty and half-naked in the house? I think her situation proves how much intelligence she has. That is not a compliment.
Because she is so principled, she accepts only food stamps, even though she is eligible for more money
So her principles make her bad at math.
How is that article condemning?
You are SERIOUSLY arguing that gross neglect is perfectly ok? We ARREST people for less than that!
I doubt anybody reading this post could handle that.
She ... can't ... either ... which ... makes ...her ... dumb.
Today's price for haircuts is $35. $520 is about right for 14 children.
Scissors cost a couple of bucks.
This was an in vitro pregnancy that went wrong.
Despite what the GOP wants, there are options for that.
Her reason for having as many eggs implanted as possible, was because she was afraid they would be disposed of.
And her solution was brighter ... how?
He has lost his license, which I think is appropriate.
He should be paying for the kids he created.
She has had her share of criticism, and she states she is exhausted from defending herself.
She's exhausted from defending the indefensible. No rational mind would do this crap.
When I first watched her years back, I was sorry for her, not hating or condemning her as so many do.
I thought she was dumb then and my assessment hasn't changed.
She is no sloucher.
According to the GOP, she's the poster child for sucking off the government tit without doing anything to improve her situation. Reality TV ONLY works if people care enough to watch. I don't. I think her kids should be taken from her and her uterus removed. She clearly is a baby hoarder. We arrest people for having too many cats. This chick has ISSUES. She does NOT know when to say NO.
lulu2: those children need help
Agreed. If we're all paying for her kids anyway, let's get them away from this obsessive baby oven. Ten bucks says in time she'll have some more. Seems like as soon as one batch of puppies is out of diapers she starts up yet another.
christine3: I'd be nuts with 14 kids. I'm sure she is at times.
From a previous post, you note she was nuts BEFOREHAND.
I can't watch that either.
You don't know how TV works, do you? The fact you don't watch is where your "but she's trying to support her kids through tv" argument fails miserably. You are paid when people watch.
I applauded her for holding it together, and she is doing that.
No she isn't! If she is not supporting her children and providing a safe environment, SHE ... IS ... NOT ...HANDLING ... IT!
Christ, MY parents were bad, but THIS woman ...!
Knock and the door shall open. It's not my fault if you don't like the decor.
From the link in the first post, Ms. Suleman explains the $500 haircut. But her explanation doesn’t make the situation look too much better. She says that “about half” of the money was for previous haircuts for her brood. Twenty eight cuts in all. But, that means that her cut was $250- still not reasonable.
The same day as her filing became public, Suleman said in an interview with HLN that she would consider doing porn — something she always said she would never do — if it meant earning money to take care of her large brood. "You know if the opportunity comes up I'll be the first to admit, I'm gonna eat my words!," said Octomom, who posed topless for a measly $8,000 in March. "Because all that matters is that I can take care of my family. If it's a job, and it's a well-paying job, and it's gonna allow me to get out of here and move [my kids] into a very safe, huge home that they deserve … I'm gonna do it."
Wow...yep...she sounds like she lives on a lot of 'principles'
Our need to learn should always outweigh our need to be right
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
Don't be afraid to be open-minded. Your brain isn't going to fall out.
