I don't agree with all of her actions, but when she had 8 embryos implanted, that wasn't what she expected or agreed to. Her doctor was the first to back-pedal when he discovered how outraged people were. She didn't agree to reductions once they were all developing.

That "hair-stylist" had previously given free cuts to her 14 children, so the money was for 20 hair cuts, and hers was so expensive because her hair was damaged and this person she trusted inside her home insisted she needed it. After taking pictures and collecting from Nadia, she went and collected more from that tabloid she sold the whole story to.

Her home has been inspected many times and she still has all of the kids. The one day one toilet wasn't working was because the plumber eventually found a harmonica in it.

She has refused welfare--she's receive $900 a month if she took it. She has accepted food stamps because her children need it. According to the interview with Dr.Drew, her monthly food bill for 15 people is $4,000 a month. She gets $2,000 in food stamps.

I will admit she seemed really flaky to me when she first revealed who she was, but consider what her hormonal state must have been like...I remember mine with just one child, and the idea of multiplying that by 8 is horrific.

When she was bringing a baby home, the feeding frenzy of photographers out for a buck was so extensive they were shing bright lights in the van drivers' face, rocking the van, blocking the street and driveway of her mother's home, and had been destroying the garage door, tearing it apart to get a picture. She couldn't get out of the van until the police came.

Dr.Drew would not be defending her at all. He didn't agree with her posing semi-nude, but she had bills to pay. He was the one who pushed her to apply for food stamps. If he says she's a good mother who never sits down when he's at her house and her children are polite, happy, well-behaved and obviously loved, I'll accept his word over anyone who pretends to be a friend until they get a story to sell to a tabloid.

For some strange reason, Nadia doesn't trust most people...

The $8,000 was for posing semi-nude. that's what was spent paying the hairdresser. She hated owing her for so many haircuts.

I'm glad Dr.Drew is still working with her to try to get her to not take money to do porn. I hope she doesn't, but if she does it won't cost a taxpayer a dime. Even after it was repeatedly mentioned that she was not on Welfare, callers were still blasting her for spending so much of her Welfare check on herself.

If anyone should be helping support those kids, it should have been the doctor who decided he'd make medical history with those multiple children and put her life and the lives of the children she had and the ones she might give birth to. What a sleeze--just one more person who used her.

You make a good case, Karbie. But I'd say she needs some advice on food cost and prep. She is spending, according to your figures, about three times, per person, what we spend to feed our little family. And we eat well.

I don’t see how you could look up to someone who went and had Invetro to have more children knowing she already had 6 or so that she couldn’t afford. As far as I heard that even while she was already a mother to 6 children, she still had a hole in her heart because she wanted more children (I guess the idea that she didn't have enough yet). The problem here is that no matter how true that is for her, or anyone else for that matter, if you already have children you can't afford to support, having more children is a bad idea, especially the way she did. I wonder where she got the money for the Invetro anyway.

To the last poster. I eat relatively well on an average weekly food budget of about $40-$50.
