How are kate and octomom the same?

Alot of people always seem to say that kate is just like the Octomom ( in a bad way) ... I dont get it... besides the fact that they had mulitples.

- Kate ( and Jon) only wanted 1 more, and got a surprise of 6, Octomom did it on purpose
- Kate and Jon had job, Octomom did not
- Kate & Jon were married, were ( at the time) in a stable relationship, and wanted to add to their family, octomom is a single mom.

- Kate & Jon had their own home, octomom lives with her mom and her 14 kids.
- at first Kate didnt want a show, OM did it for a show !

I am sure alot of people say Kate uses her children to gain fame, well at first she didnt even want the reality show and once it became a hit - she is using it to her advantage, she is making money by writing books on the other hand octomom is getting paid to keep a sign in her garden saying not to let your animals become an Octomom ( get them spayed) ..

  • I see tons of stuff about Kate not being a good mom and how horrible she is...... I think if we need to pick on a person it should be octomom!

  • She was a nurse, she already had multiples from a previous IVF procedure.Don't use the "They only wanted 1 more" excuse.

  • They did only want 1 more... they say it at the begining of the show....... just because you have multiples one time doesnt mean you will again ... MANY people use IVF and only have 1 baby.... there was no way they knew they would have 6 at once...

  • actually, Kate was in the hospital for "hyper ovulation" and was advised not to TTC because of their increase chances of high order multiples (it was all in her book) but they did anyways, so I call BS on the "one more " line

  • I honestly think people should just concern themselves with their own families and not worry about Octomom or Kate. But that's JMO.
