Octuplet mom a fan of Jon and Kate?

How many of you think that she watched the show and saw all the stuff that gets donated to Jon and Kate, including trips and thought, Oh yeah, I want that?! That's one of my thoughts anyway. Anyone else?

  • It wouldn't surprise me. She probably thought it would be a good opportunity for a television show, book deals, Oprah, etc.

  • I don't know and I don't care. Jon and Kate suck and so does the octuplet mom. You are giving her the attention she wants.

  • I don't know, but I was standing in line at the grocery store last night and one of the magazines (actually, 3 of the magazines) had pictures of her and Angelina Jolie on the cover. With the plastic surgery and all of the kids, not to mention that she's tried to contact Angie, I'd say she's trying to be like Ms. Jolie.

  • i dont know if she was thinking she was going to get a free ride by having this many kids or not but, what she did was irresponsible. on the other i hand i find it crazy that people have sent her death threat messages through her web site. i might not agree with what she has done and all that but i would never wish that some one was dead because of it.

  • I don't think she did it to be like them, but I guarantee you it crossed her mind afterward.....oh and cheerios DO smell like pee. I hadn't thought of that until someone mentioned it. Interesting.
