[UPDATED with "Celebrity Home" Upsale:] Octomom Nadya Suleman Selling La Habra House

Categories: Octomerde
house-for-sale-sign-150.jpg
UPDATE, SEPT. 27, 9:41 A.M.: Who knew a celebrity previously lived in the La Habra home Octomom Nadya Suleman has put up for sale?

He or she must have because the single, unemployed mother of 14 has listed the banged-up house that's been appraised at $500,000 at $525,000, noting it was a "celebrity home."

Um . . . what? She's the celebrity? Someone call the Truth Police.

Octo-pipe organ TMZ has the scoop in a post titled, "Who Wants to OVERPAY for My Celebrity Home?"

The gossip mongers call it a last-ditch effort by Suleman to squeeze more cash out of the fixer-upper before the bank declares it a foreclosure. Besides several future visits to the Home Depot to make the place inhabitable again, amenities include artificial turf in the backyard and a "desirable" cul-de-sac location.

"If ya want it, better act fast," advises TMZ, "and also, you should lick yourself, because you must be a sucker."

ORIGINAL POST, SEPT. 23, 8:58 A.M.: The good news for a certain La Habra neighborhood is Octomom Nadya Suleman is reportedly in the process of moving herself and her brood of 14 children out of her deteriorating house.

The bad news for another nearby neighborhood is the Octomom Media Circus plans to move in soon.

The single mother, who earns a living degrading herself with paid interviews and publicity stunts, has told TMZ that she has not paid her mortgage for three months because she no longer wants to live at 2051 Madonna Ave., La Habra.

She claims it's because she's sick of her neighbors, although her rep apparently conceded to the gossip site that Octo really wants to get rid of the $3,500 monthly payments.

Talk about a short sale: she's apparently trying to sell the place in week for $500,000 before it forecloses. She reportedly owes $450,000. See, she's a genius at finances as well as family planning!

By the way, this latest twist is not to be confused with all those months Octomom publicly whined she was behind on house payments and her lender threatened her with foreclosure because her financial trust apparently had other priorities.

So, what is the potential buyer getting at the house where Suleman famously held a showy garage sale for the media cameras (including . . . gulp . . . ours)? Let's just say it's definitely a fixer-upper, based on the "House in Shambles" video included with the TMZ post.

Perhaps Octomom should send her resume to Obama and see if he can help her out for life in one of his freeloader programs.

Well I see at least one person commenting here CLAIMS to have formally complained to CPS, perhaps they need an official complaint from a neighbor or family member to proceed? I dunno.One thing I do know, if OCW would stop falling into her trap for her media fix every few months she would be just one more homeless person. Please Matt, give us a break, you had 2 good articles posted in this issue, let octo trash get forgotten.

In response to your (CLAIMS) comment. I did contact CPS!!! Can supply, date, time & name if required. As to neighbors contacting CPS. They have done that. One neighbor even went on TMZ (video) to complain. Kudos to Matt for keeping the message alive, and in the event you are not getting the message, IT'S NOT ABOUT HER, IT'S ABOUT 14 HELPLESS CHILDREN. Matt's concern is that a evil shelfish, fame whore uses little children to search for stardom. Octotrash just used one of the babies deformed cleft lip as her vechicle for her latest beg fest. She said she could not afford the surgery, yet she spent millions on her own plastic surgery, lip enhancement, & designer clothes. The little boy Jonah should have had the operation 2 1/2 years ago. Octotrash had tons of money at that time, but she wanted to sell his deformed face as a reality show. Well, she got Inside Edition to do that.  Shame on Inside Edition !!!! Shame on all of her Enablers, her manager VaGina, her parents, and the Media who have her on their programs without doing their research. Any money she gets from these begfest's never goes to the 8 babies. It goes to her personal needs and to support the life style of the older 6 kids, their private school, expensive toys, dining out. She barely dresses the 8 babies. Octotrash feeds them like they are pigs at a trough. 8 kids to 1 room. Cribcages with no sheets, no blankets, no shoes. The only time these babies get out of the house is for a photo-op. A photo-op where she will be the star. These poor kids live in a filthy house, with a evil, evil certifiable nut case, who lies about everything & anything

Thank you Matt for being the only person, that I have seen, who tells the truth about Suleman. it is plain to see you research octomom and her situation before writing about her, more people need to follow your example. Thank you again I look forward to all of your articles, the truth is refreshing.

Looks like Toxomom still has her Ginormous publicist grinding out her own  ludicrous brand of  spam.

Over on TMZ there is a big sudden influx of approvingly sympathetic posts. And guess what.Every one of these posters all joined the site ONE day ago. What a coincidence, no?Just click onto the names of the posts and you'll see.

You can do the same with TeamNadya and see that while the publiocist goes into multiple personaity disorder mode, Nadya Suleman is  sticking to her alter ego and gainfully spending the last of her time before foreclosure writing fan mail to herself, as usual. Not like she has to find housing for 14 kids or anything.

I don't understand why anyone would think it  is kids putting holes in those walls. Unless they are driving little armored  tanks . The oldest kid is what, ten, and doesn't have enough strength behind him to go through walls. did anyone check to see if the old house had this same wall holes thing? The dirty damaged walls are the same. I believe that naturally or otherwise her way of expressing anger at not getting what she wants is to destroy something.  God help those kids when and if she escalates. Has anyone asked the neighbors if they've heard things being destroyed?

Has anyone even asked the neighbors in any in depth way whether they think it necessary for Child Protective Services to intervene?  Or if they are being left alone or neglected in some perilous  way? Or if she is behaving in some deranged or drugged manner? Tweakers are pretty obvious, after all.After all they would be the first to witness a lot of it.

Since the comment or accusations about the neighbors, I think they should be asked and have their chance to reply to the claims Natalie has made. First and foremost the guy/neighbor  that Natalie claimed was a pedophile . I would like to hear their side one hundred times more than I want to hear Natalie's LIES

Just to let everyone realize CPS will never come to the aid of these children. I know because I called them about the Inside Edition program where Octotrash was forcing the Octulet's into a Doughboy Pool in her backyard. That Trashy Mother was ordering the 8 babies out of the house into the pool. The terror on these children's faces was heartbreaking. Octotrash was pushing them into the water, trying to force them to swim, the little tkes were trying to hold on to her for dear life. Why was she doing this, well, it was going to be a segment on Inside Edition, Nadya Suleman was going to get more camera face time at the expense of 8 helpless children. The taping of this scene was so disturbing that Inside Edition ran it just 1 time, then scrubbed their site of the video, any questions about the video to IE go unanswered. Oh, by the way the POOL in the backyard at Octotrash's house on Madonna Dr. in La Harbra is illegal. It's been cited as a SAFETY HAZARD. And no wonder, 14 kids with a Mother who is mentally out to lunch,out of the house, out to the gym, who has no control over these children has an above ground pool. She has been cited & fined. The fine started out at $100.00 as of a few weeks ago its up to $600.00 and counting. Pool's still up. Oh yes, According to Nadya Suleman it's all the neighbors fault. TMZ ran the Pool story  live and while they were on the air, Nadya Suleman called in and said "A neighbor reported her pool and he is a Pedophile." That's what she said, live, on the air, and on TMZ.

This above scenerio was told to CPS. They could have cared less. CPS did not wish to be involved. Oh, but they did ask me if the pool was still on her property. When I said I did not know, here's what they said, and it's priceless, "I could always call the safety department and find out." There you are folks, your Orange County Tax Dollars working for you. CPS will never help any of the Suleman Children until one of them is hurt or even the worst happens.

Nadya Suleman has been taking money out of Tax Payers pockets for more than 10 years. She has produced 14 children without benefit of Father, Job or the ability to care for them. Of the 1st 6 children, 3 of them have been diagnosed as having developmental problems, and she receives $600.00 for each of those 3. Of the Octuplets who will be 3 years old in a few months, they all lack verbal skills. These are not babbling babies. Jonah was born with a cleft lip. It should have repaired in the 1st 3 months. 2 1/2 years later, it just was repaired, and only because it was a "Public Relations" embarrasment. Because the lip was not corrected in the early stages of life, his teeth grew in not doown but sideways. She still keeps all 8 octuplets in Crib Cages in one room. There are 4 cribs with 2 kids to each crib. Most of the time they are only in a diaper. no shoes, no shirt. The 8 babies, along with the 5 year old twins are not potty trained.

This is just a thumbnail account of what hell these children live in and CPS does not see a need to investigate. They don't want to get involved, but they do want to collect a paycheck.

Matt That is the important stuff  about how the kids are being impacted that we should be reading in the OCW articles. NOT only in the comments.

I know you do and I really appreciate that you, Matt,  have done just about  the only original work on reporting about her.  But to trivialize someone who has destructively behaved has she has towards so many helpless children also trivialises how serious their plight is. Who speaks for the children in the media? Isn't that just adding to their neglect? I also think enough of you as a very good writer to feel sure that you could really go a whole lot further with a story where 17 lives have been so badly damaged in order to perpetuate a fauxlebrity circus.  14 kids. 2 elderly parents. 1 well-meaning landlord.

Thanks Matt; we know you have the children's welfare in mind. That's the only reason any of us follow Nadya's story. She's an adult and she can take care of herself, but those children are helpless and dependent on her.

I love the composite picture with the article, Nadya in a jalopy with her junk duct-taped on the roof! About her failure to make the house payments: I think she's had enough money all along, but she didn't like the house and she was mad because the neighbors didn't appreciate her wonderfulness, so she planned to move anyway. So she just quit paying, to have an excuse to leave.

Funny thing is she keeps pretending everything is just hunkie dory- if only she can catch a break in the film industry and them recognize her talent and pay her accordingly. All she needs is one endorsement!! Just yesterday she bragged that the new series Haters was at her house filming and she is madly studying a script for some horror movie( starring her) nobody seems to know anything about while she does the StairMaster at the gym. She says they are beginning filming in October. She says other countries are being quite generous and open to her "uniqueness" and this isn't the only country folks! By the way, she doesn't just want to stay local but to move into a gated community! I guess we shouldn't be so concerned?? Keep your chin up Octo so your next opponent Amy Fisher can get a good shot!

What is even funnier? A mother can mention all that nonsense for hours but not once talk about one of fourteen kids she has. Not a mother ,  and it is ALL about her. Natlie should praise ALL those kids more because without them she would still be NOTHING.

The house is not deteriorating, it's being systematically destroyed by 14 out of control children and their lunatic of a mother.  I'm an adult and it would take a good deal of force on my part to knock a hole  all the way through dry wall like that.  It would also hurt like heck!  Imagine the anger propelling a child to do that not once, but multiple times. 

To be honest, I don't bellieve that the bank is truly going to foreclose.  I believe this is another one of her regularly scheduled  quarterly beg-fests, appealing to the suckers and idiots of the world.  Obviously, the boxing gigs aren't drawing the crowds she and her delusional manager imagined. 

Nope, I don't feel the slightest bit of pity for Octomom.  I do feel sorry for the kids because they are stuck with her as their "mother", but not so sorry for them that I will put them to the head of the hand-out lines in front of the other 1.5 million children who are homeless at any given time.

Matt Coker, you do keep my faith alive that someday those kids will get the help they need. I can tell you care and I know others do as well. It is easy to get snarky with Natalie since she is the main entity keeping those kids from getting any love and help from other people. Thank You for telling it like it is.

Why hasn't Child Protective Services done anything for these 14 trapped children?

When you see those holes in the wall, think about how they got there in the first place. Holes in he wall and structural degradation don't come from some small toddlers  playing.

Those holes are the result of something violent repeatedly or even systematically going on, quite possibly kicking or punching. Those holes speak of a violent level of anger not normally seen in children's homes .

 So, is this woman acting-out delusional or on drugs that make her very physically violent? Instead of being with her babies since hey were born, she spends all her days at the gym working out, so she can put quite a thrust  behind her punches and kicks, she "boxes" so she knows how to throw punches. So who is minding the kids, since she claims she now has no minders.

There are a large number of these holes , all with jagged, exposed edges . European TV has shown  the babies mouthing the edges of that shattered dry wall right at their level and partially crawling through those holes. Whatever chemicals are  in drywall are now in those babies systems..Then there is the level of dirt and neglect.   Veneer is peeled off f the dining table, dining chairs are broken and can easily injure a  child. The nursery has furniture with drawers missing creating another child hazard.  The floors and walls are very dirty.The unguarded  pool is a tragedy waiting to happen

If we can see this, how is it that California Protective services isn't looking?

So will the irony be that when one of these kids is further maimed or dies outright, Nadya Suleman will then be able to sue Orange County for child neglect and claim that the county did not help her to adequately supervise her family and therefore she can't be held responsible?

Will Aiden who is the most obviously autistic child so far, find an advocate to sue the county for him since he is not being in  any way provided with the kind of essential environment special needs children  cope in, let alone have any prospect of getting better in.

So , Matt, maybe it is time to stop treating this as fauxlebrity tackiness or skanky grifter stupidity and recognize the tragedy of 14 kids losing every prospect of hope for any normalcy at all.What makes you think they won't pay back the county for neglect in ther teenage years where juvee may have a special wing just for them that will be nicer than where they come from.

And bottom line. If she obviously has no clue how to support or manage 14 kids and shown us all for two and a half years what that is like when the money is running out, what happens now when the money is obviously gone?

Nadya  Suleman CAN'T sell that house.. It does not belong to her. Quite possibly it does not even any longer belong to the fool who sold it to her. If he's given it over to the bank then the bank may well own it. And may have to refurbish it just to put it on the market.

So where is she going to get the pile of money she would need to move? And, Matt wouldn't you really love to interview anyone who would rent a house to her? The only way Toxomom can even get housing is through social services who will be forced to have to do it.

We know that Matt. I think that was just Done's way of venting. Everyone is very frustrated  that this woman is so obviously an unfit parent, and nothing is being done about it.
