Octomom Nadya Suleman has done exactly what she promised that world she wouldn’t do–resorted to adult entertainment and stripping to support her family.
Suleman, the mom of 14, made her stripping debut this week in Florida to mixed reviews. She took the part-time job after going on welfare and filing bankruptcy a few weeks before. Reports have also stated that she has agreed to do a pornographic movie.
The Octomom has been under some scrutiny after photographs were released of her home in complete disarray and reports of her refusing charity events and only wanting to make donations if she gets paid.
In a 2009 interview with Dr. Phil, Suleman was adamant that she would not go on welfare nor resort to measures like stripping to take care of her children. However, hard times have apparently changed her mind.
“Any job I’m fortunate enough to get is for the kids. If I had no kids, I’d be in school trying to get my Ph.D. right now,” Suleman told The NY Daily News this year.
The News goes on to say that Suleman told HLN, “If it’s a job, and it’s a well-paying job, and it’s gonna allow me to get out of here and move in a very safe, huge home that they deserve, I’m gonna do it.”
Let’s suspend for a moment the debate on whether or not Suleman should’ve given birth to the octuplets in the first place. The kids are here and that fact isn’t going to change. So, put yourself in her place–if you were the sole caretaker of 14 children, would you take any job that you could to support your family? Where would you draw the line in the sand, or would you draw a line at all?
