'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: So about that Octomom fetish video...

The woman who became famous for having eight babies at once has done something so outrageous and so over the top, I'm wondering if she should have all of her 14 children taken away from her!

Today we have the cringe-worthy sexual fetish video that the Octomom may have taped in the home she shares with her children.

We'll also be talking about Ricky Gervais sounding off with CNN’s Piers Morgan in his very first interview since the Golden Globes – he’s still got no filter and he’s still ticking off just about everyone in Hollywood!

And are you digging the new “American Idol” line-up? Post your thoughts here.

Plus, today on "Showbiz Tonight," we have an amazing, all-star panel - “Entourage’s” Debi Mazar and former teen sensations Tiffany and Deborah Gibson - debating the day’s most provocative stories.

See you on "Showbiz Tonight" at 5 p.m. ET and again at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN today!

Watch Showbiz Tonight Weekdays Exclusively at 11PM ET on HLN.

    I must admit, I really bust a gut laughing so hard! Personally, I don't have a problem with it. Lighten up folks! It's a little bit of harmless role-playing! She's strapped for cash and this provided some urgently needed money. No harm was done to any of the children, the children will benefit as a result of this so it's all good.

    Her kids need to be taken away by the state and put in loving foster homes ASAP. She needs to be arrested on child endangerment charges right away and given a psych eval to go along with it. For the sake of her children, she should never be allowed back int heir lives again...she is a walking train wreck of a human being...

    Well what else is she supposed to do for money? A regular job won't support all those kids she has. And yes she shouldn't have had them in the first place, but what's done is done. The kids are here and they need money.

    Someone should take those children away from her and the Doctor that implanted all those children should pay the bills to raise them.

  11. Our Fault

    It's all of our faults because we clicked on the story, so we make this type of behavior popular. If we just didn't click these stories the news would stop reporting on them. The person then would not be popular and society would start to change. But we know we cant help but click and view these stories of waste less people.

    What a creep cretin. She is so fugly inside AND out. Is there some kind of contest going on for who can creep out the world the best? Is this what she really wanted to do with her life? The kids thing, then the cavorting in the kids playroom (ewww) with a fat man? Talk about stooping to a new low. I think she needs a good shrink AND a rubber room. Its a case of really dumb and dazed and confused out of control. Who was watching the kids when this was going on?

    If her kids weren't there, who cares? Its not like they were watching or part of the crew. I'm sure the same ppl who complain that our government intrudes too much in the lives of its citizens are the same people here dictating what this woman should do with her personal life.

    If the kids weren't exposed, then no harm no foul. Mind your own business and if you want to complain about problems...look in the mirror.

    I wish she was an African American, then the media would have ignored her from day one and we would be spared all the stories. She is not the only woman in America with many children, so please can we give this a rest?

    as long as you have the media that reports on any thing these stupid people do, then these stupid people will continue to do these moronic things! the American media has sunk to a new low. they will put anything in the news today. I do not know who is the creepiest? the media or the idiots that do these things. I did not watch the video.

    Let's see: No job, producing 14 children she couldn't afford to raise in the first place, wanting yet more children,fetish videos that inevitably will humiliate her children once they are old enough to hear about it and understand. Nope, nothing about that raises questions about the mental stability of this total sack of crazy.. No, not at all. I could just throw up . Suddenly, just like that, I am bulimic.

    Not surprised. She has to pay to get another plastic surgery. Not that there is anything wrong with a little nip tuck here or there but damn keep it real.

    If she is broke she can move up here to Canada. Welfare would love to pay for her to keep having babies. Why is it that welfare moms have so many?

      Because they get more money.

      I tried to give this woman the benefit of doubt. However, after seeing this, all that's left is doubt. Very sad.

    What else do you expect when society idolizes "stars" like Octomom, Snookie, Paris Hilton, and their ilk? Was anybody actually expecting class, intelligence or sophistication? Today it's no longer necessary to be talented, attractive, or even mildly interesting to become famous. All you have to do is tape yourself doing something really stupid and post it on YouTube. The dweeboverse will do the rest. And let's not be hypocrites here; websites like this eat it all up. The tabloids promote useless wastes like this lady, and then cut them down again seconds later because it sells ads and generates lots of clicks. Whatever happened to the real stars? Where are the heirs of Jean Harlow, Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart? Certainly not to be found among the sad, trashy, talentless losers that pass for "celebrities" today.

    The person that said a regular job won't support 15 kids is correct.The doctor that did the invetro admitted that he was experimenting with her and that she did not sign anything giving permission and she was not told she was his experiment.All these things are against the law. Where is the civil suit to help these unfortunate children? Where is the lawyer to step up and look out for these kids. This nut job of a doctor is the most responsible person for this whole tragedy. With out him this could not have possibly happened and he should pay with every penny he has to make sure his experiment is feed and clothed!

    My 1st thought is, oh my God! These poor kids are going to be so screwed when they get older cause this video will be forever out on the web and there friends will see it and it will be their legacy.She may be desperate but do do something so damaging to her kids is not OK.Again she proves she is incapable of thought beyond the moment or beyond the point of I want.I really believe she has mental challenges and should be evaluated.She seems incapable of bringing the children and their welfare into her decisions.

    She should be declared an unfit mother, have her children taken away before she does further damage, and then sterilized so she doesn't create any more burdens for society.

    There's no "may have" about it. She absolutely did film this in her home. Not only that, she used her own childrens' toys as props. It looks like it was filmed shortly before her yard sale. 'Disturbing' doesn't even begin to cover it.

      No telling what she was doing while they were not recording! No telling where her children were! No telling who her kids were with! She deserves to live on hud, medicaid, wic, food programs and welfare. Her kids should have no better future than all the other poor kids in America. She should be responsible for their low income status and live it.

    Creepy, and embarrassing for those kids (when they get older). What the heck is wrong with a normal job. Yeah, they suck for the most part, but can be good. I looked for a long time and wound up liking my job. People are lazy and want quick riches. Fantasy.
