Octomom gets her own TV show....

What do you think? Will you watch? Personally, I think this lady is nuttier than squirrel poop, and she did this just to get publicity.

  • I really could care less. But, I don't care for those shows that delve into the lives of other families like Jon and Kate or the Duggars. Nothing against any of them, I just don't care to look into their private lives.

  • So? And what's the problem with that? if she has her own show she has the money to care for her kids. People will gripe that she can't afford them and when someone offers her a job, and money, you still gripe. Woman can't win for anything.

  • Sorry Anon, but I will gripe. Here's why:
    First, she already had 6 children at home. She went and got IVF with no thought of the burden it would put on her already stressed family. She did it out of pure selfishness.
    Second, I believe she did it just to become famous and get rich. She obviously wants the attention, because she is constantly on the internet or doing interviews.
    Third, I think that TV's shows like that exploit children. Jon and Kate, the Duggars, etc... What are these kids going to think when they are older and see these shows? "Hey mom and dad, did you really throw that birthday party because you wanted to or because your ratings needed a boost?"
    Sorry, I have no sympathy for her at all.

  • kuuipo - I'm sorry to hear that hon. Hugs to you and your family, and best wishes that things will look up for you!

  • I won't watch. For some reason, I just can't get into baby/kid shows like that. I never could watch the Jon & Kate Plus 8 show.
    I hope all the money made from the shows are used for the children's care and for their future needs.
    I also hope that some of the money gets the mom into psychiatric care, on medication, and in therapy so she can be a good mom to those children. It's the least that they deserve now that they are here.
