Oprah and Financial Guru to Try to Help 'Octomom' Figure Out Her Financial Future

Octomom: Needing help feeding her babies since 2009.
"Octomom" Nadya Suleman won't be a part of Oprah Winfrey's popular "My Favorite Things" episodes, during which the audience is showered with free swag, but there will be something offered to her: financial advice. And maybe the chance to salvage whatever is left of her dignity.

On Friday's show, Oprah hosts Suleman along with "money powerhouse" Suze Orman, who will attempt to help the Octomom to figure out a way to pay the $450,000 balloon payment on her La Habra home, as well as create a stable financial environment for the coming months and years.

Surely, part of that plan won't include any more Bloomingdale's shopping sprees.

For Suleman, the hope is that Orman will help her figure out how best to stay on top of her finances and away from the charity of Steve Hirsch of the adult-entertainment company Vivid.

Can Suze Orman save Octomom? Can anyone?
​Orman is the host of a daily talk show, as well as a New York Times best-selling author. She's twice been named one of TIME's 100 Most Influential People. Despite her success, she'll have her work cut out for her with Octomom and her 14 offspring.

Suleman has already had the deadline for the balloon payment extended on several occasions, courtesy of her landlord, Amer Haddadin. But Haddadin's patience is wearing thin. Which is where Hirsch came in, first hoping to recruit her into a $1 million role in a film, then offering to make the balloon payment if Octomom joined Vivid as an employee. Suleman has refused Hirsch's offers.

Nadya is mentally ill. I don't think anyone could support a family that large. I wish the children could go into a foster care program or possible adoption. Nadya could still visit with her children. Clearly, Nayda needs behavioral and financial assistance for the rest of her life. The children have to be suffering and probably have some of their mothers mental health issues.

If I understand it correctly, Octomom would've have been entitled to Soc Security payments for each of her octoplets due to multiple birth low birth weight. Now that they are older they may have caught up in weight, but due to the extreme nature of the multiples, they will probably be entitled to Soc Security payments for things like speech or developmental delays. That, in addition to the payments she's already receiving is what she is living on.

Maybe someone at OC weekly could ask Octomaim if it is true she owns and has a gun in a house with 14 unsupervised children. Or maybe the OC Weekly could check registries and licensing to see what kind of heat she's packing.

And whether CPS knows she has a gun.

I am looking forward to seeing her called out on her extravagant spending. It's absurd the way she lies about things. She says: Mink eyelashes are real, No botox, No lip pumping, no tummy tuck (yeah, right) when it's apparent to the most casual observer that she is lying. Mani-pedis, fast food, trips to Disney and Knott's, too tight designer clothes, Starbucks, Mac cosmetics, weekly trips to Toys R Us for more plastic junk to distract the kids from realizing they have no parent, gym membership and personal trainer - if she took care of the kids she wouldn't need a personal trainer or have the time to go to the gym. The list goes on and on all the while she is crying poverty. NO ONE who lives in a half million dollar house in an expensive CA county gets to complain they are broke. NO ONE!!

Personal finances are simple: you need an income to support your necessary expenses at a minimum, and for discretionary spending, don't spend more than you bring in. That's all there is to it. Octomom's problem is, she has no income, and with 14 kids, she has huge necessary expenses. No matter how much she cuts out her selfish shopping sprees, she still will never cover her expenses unless she gets an income from somewhere.

Here's Lila's financial advice: Take Vivid's offer. Octomom does NOT have to perform porn; Steven Hirsch offered her $500,000 to appear, clothed, in an adult video. That would pay off her house with money to spare. Then he offered her $1000 per day to work as a production assistant. That is an IDEAL job because only a few days' work per month would pay for nannies, food, diapers etc. What single parent wouldn't jump at that?

Octomom says she won't deal with Vivid at all because porn is demeaning to women. Well, feeding your kids on government handouts and living in a shelter because of foreclosure is demeaning, too. With 14 kids dependent on her, she should take the work. She won't get any better offers.

Maybe that's why she doesn't speak to the tups and keeps them alone in a dark room with a closed door- so that they won't be able to learn to speak. Then she can collect more money for "their" disabilities. Perhaps that is why she won't get the child's cleft lip repaired- paycheck from SSI for that too? She had no problem fixing her own lips, and tummy tuck (I had one and her scar is EXACTLY the same as mine, as shown in the unaltered (meaning, BEFORE photoshop) red bikini pics.

Maybe she does get SSA payments for some of the kids, but those payments are never enough to cover everything. They only assist. She still needs to get some source of reliable income to cover all of her expenses... not even counting her discretionary spending on herself...

Oh for crying out loud, would you give this nonsense a rest? You've posted it all over the internet without offering a single single source for the claim other than your own obsessive delusion.

Porn is demeaning to women, but apparently stripping isn't- Natalie used to be a stripper and used the name Angelina at the time.

I believe she is deliberately trying to stunt their development so she will receive disability payments. She is pond scum.

DDD has a genuine concern for those children and she is 'crying out' for those children the only way she knows how. Maybe if it is repeated often enough CPS will inquire about it. Those children are feral with absolutely no guidance or control. A gun in that house WILL result in one or more of those children being killed! SOMEONE NEEDS TO LISTEN!

Well, guest, so have you read about her denying it anywhere? Hmmm? Why would that be?

Now you sound like a birther.

There are plenty of TRUTHS that CPS needs to check out- all caught on tape, such as the babies caged for 12 hours straight an left in their own filth while their captor/mother unzips the cage and HURLS a cold bottle at them, without saying anything to them- without even making eye contact. Romanian orphanages have a less cruel surrounding.

No, because no one with any credibility has ever reported that it even exists. You made it up. If you think lying about something so serious helps those children, you are dead wrong. It just makes most people roll their eyes at YOU the way they roll their eyes at anything and everything that comes out of Toxomom's mouth. And that does NOT help bring CPS' attention to those desperate children. But, if you don't mind harming them by giving CPS to ignore them because of your crackpot lies, go right ahead and keep pushing this BS.
