British Journalist Enters the War Zone: Octomom Nadya Suleman's La Habra Home

Babysitter
To plagiarize the words of the great Kent Brockman, British journalist Pete Samson might be inclined to say, "Ladies and gentlemen, I've been to Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq, and I can say without hyperbole that this is a million times worse than all of them put together."

The headline over today's piece in The Sun newspaper also reveals Samson's grueling assignment: "I Babysat for Octomum." Yanks, of course, know her as "Octomom," or La Habra single mother of 14 Nadya Suleman.

Samson reports that he was invited to spend a day with the Octomom brood, but what he didn't know until he arrived was their nanny had called in sick--"leaving me on the front line looking after her army of kids."

Here's one, Pete, lemme go find the other 13.
He admits to having been skeptical going in that motherhood is the hardest job in the world. He isn't any longer. Among the horrors he dealt with were walls soaked in red crayon, "deafening screams" echoing around the house, rugrats rolling over a floor covered in the remains of their lunches--and a "frazzled mum" frantically running around like a chicken with her head cut off.

The journo got something out of Octomom I had not read before: contriteness. She concedes it was a mistake to get shot up with sperm, take fertility drugs and carry eight children to term when she already had six hungry mouths to feed.

"It was a stupid, immature choice I made," Suleman reportedly told Samson, who was also informed of a reversal from a previous statement she made on daytime television about possibly adding to her baby battalion.

"I will never have any more," she reportedly said, adding later that she is happy living a celibate life. "God help me, no. I have no interest in babies. If I am out and hear a baby crying I feel physically sick."

Imagine your neighbors.

I believe if the press left Suleman completely alone, refuse her phone calls due to lack of interest, Nayda would consider giving the children up to foster care. As long as her face is plastered in print...good or bad...we will have to hear about lack of money, book in the making, everyone taking advantage of her, blah, blah, blah. STOP giving in to her and her need to be noticed.Matt you are the best, nice to see some truth and get a good laugh

Closely listen to an Inception dvd made before the January 8th Tucson shooting, especially during the dialogue, "Do It."

 as a Mom of young children one of the most blatant and disturbing observation I can say is I have never seen a picture of any of the octuplets smiling, or any video of them happy or playing.   Never.   Almost every picture of my kids they are smiling!   They should be laughing easy at this ago too.   These babies faces have the same look as the babies at Romanian orphanages!

Always looking for a gimmick,,first being the earth mother and having over a dozen kids didn't work. Now trying to break free from being said mother. "Octomom" adopt the kids out to loving homes and commit yourself to the local psych ward. Now there's a gimmick you haven't tried, and the best thing for all involved.

 she's still saying she had '6 frozen embryos' implanted to this reporter when the fact is that she INSISTED on TWELVE fresh embryos implanted during the IVF that resulted in octuplets....promising she would selectively reduce if too many took , then disappearing after she got pregnant to where neither the Dr. nor any staff could find or reach her.   She STILL has frozen embryos she's paying for.   So much for her sob story of not wanting to kill the remaining 6 embryos, and not being able to afford storage huh?   Everything she says is a LIE.   She states in this article she's not even maternal...huh??  14 babies back to back and not even maternal?   That's perhaps the most honest thing she's ever said, and so telling (not to mention obvious).   The real story is that this woman managed to conn the system and so many people and had the money pay for 6 almost continual back to back IVF at $18,000+ per attempt (and admitting several IVFs failed) while qualifying for food stamps, medical , ssi, wic, and other assistance with very strict income guidelines...and has gotten away w/ her entire scheme.    The Medical board has access to her medical records and confirms the 12 embryos transferred.  http://www.businessweek.com/ap...

 Will you please take a look at this link listed below. In the 1st photo of the reporter and the Suleman Octuplets, there are 3 of those babies with bruises on their face (look to the right of the photo, top to bottom). According to the reporter the bruises are from the babies fighting with each other over toys. Who told him that ? Octomom?

Well, all the bruises are on the the same part of the face, and it looks like they were slapped, and slapped in the same place. Could it be by the same person ? Can a baby be that accurate each time ? Who ever did it appears to be left-handed. 

 This Octomom is dangerous to the extreme, and is doing serious harm to 14 kids. Follow this up. Even the dippy reporter said the babies all have speech problems. Nadya even admits in the article that she locks them in the room when it gets too much for her.

Why aren't there ever any reporters that ask Nadya Suleman how she feels about killing off 28 live embryos --i.e live babies--and maiming many of the surviving 14 kids? Making her the most prolific serial child murderer as well as child abuser in history. Does Guinness give out medals for that, too?

Why aren't the reporters ever reporting the actual physical condition of these kids. Many of them clearly show distinct physical signs of  abnormality.What is the extent of sibling abuse to these babies? Why hasn't a 2 year old with a cleft palate that should have been fixed within the first six months of his life had it repaired yet?

Why don't these kids ever seem to even have shoes to wear? Why does the media keep unsuccessfully trying to pigeonhole this into some failed example of crazy creepiness when it is an example of serial child abuse 14 repeat FOURTEEN times over?Why isn't the press looking into what CPS is actually doing to make the lives of these pathetic lost kids any better? Why doesn't the media seem to understand how dangerous this neglect and absence of any kind of normal security is to 14 kids. Two year olds fighting each other to get something to eat for lunch? How would you like to live like that three times a day? Presuming they get fed three times a day. There was a video of her slopping down food in a trough for the babies while the older kids crawled through the cabinets looking for something they could eat. Didn't one of the nannies file a report saying there was very little food in the house? While she wears $450 mink fake lashes.

Or at least find out why they have to live in literal hole in the wall squalor and neglect. No day care center would be allowed to have that many kids with so little responsibility for them.And probably no kennel would be allowed to keep animals in the conditions kids live in.

Why is Orange County so enabling to this appalling instance of serial child abuse that has been continuing for two years?For you who live in Orange County, it is your taxes that this criminal is using to shortchange these 14 kids and keep treating herself to every costly bizarre whim she desires.

 It's always about her...if she had ever put the kids first people would have more respect for her. She is now saying she needs mental help and hoping to make a reality show about that...still, it's never about the kids. When is she gonna realize that no one and I mean NO ONE is interested in what she has to say about herself. The only interest she generates is about the children.

 She's also shopping a reality show. Her agent is the one that rehabilitates the images of 'mistresses' and others who have been tarred and feathered. Check out Perez Hilton for the promo video. Gag.

Well, if you feel so bad for the kids, maybe you could have them come and stay with you. You could feed them, change them, wash them, comfort them, and educate them. Pretty much be their mother.

That's gotta be the dullest Serial Child Abuser video ever. Snore. And snore again.Dontcha just love how this innocent mom is going to break through her hated image (obviously she was drugged and forced by someone to make that fetish video and squander her kids future at the mall) and the way she plans on breaking through it is to chant the exact same threadbare lies syllable for syllable that she's been spewing for two solid years.And keeping the camera tight on her fake frontage and face full of plastic parts. Instead of wasting time showing us normal, well, happy kids who aren't peering through basketball-sized holes punched in their bedroom walls.Now THAT scene mighthave made for some interesting television.

And as for that agent. That's quite a career move. It must do wonders for her resume to be representing someone who deliberately chose to hurt so many impoverished disabled kids.And then steal all the money donated to them.
