Octomom Nadya Suleman's Latest Octo-idiocy: Having 14 Kids Necessary to Fill "Emotional Void"
And don't forget the TV appearances, like tonight's on Dr. Drew Pinsky's HLN program, where she explains she had eight more children to add to the six she already had "to fill an emotional void."
Humorously, in the teaser clip above, Suleman seeks Pinsky's approval as a fellow psychiatric professional. After all, she was the "valedictorian of my psychiatric technician program." Pinksy then has to explain he's a medical internist and addiction-medication specialist, not a psychiatrist. Suleman, of course, talks right over him, continuing like he's Sigmund Freud.
Suleman begins that interchange by noting, "I've created my own safe, predictable environment." Um, riiiiight, if by predictable she means one filled with chitlins running around like banshees as any reporter who's gone to her La Habra home or Today show set will tell you.
It's in the Pinsky-narrated intro that has viewers learning Octomom's brood fills the emotional void caused by her mother's controlling and detachment and her father's issues with rage, resentment and panic attacks. Thank goodness for in-vitro fertilization and today's welfare state, because they have allowed her to come out of it all stronger.
"I thrive off of my self-discipline and self-control," she is heard to say.
That loud bang you just heard was my head exploding. Expect to hear a bunch more pops shortly after Dr. Drew starts rolling at 9 tonight.
