Famous mother of fourteen Nadya Suleman has told Anderson Cooper that she charged Britain’s “Closer” magazine just $8,0000 when they approached her recently to appear in the buff.
And you know what?
The 36-year-old single mom says she’s not all ashamed of her decision - besides, she needed the cash.
“You wanna know how much I got?" Suleman asked Cooper on an episode of his talk show, which aired Friday. "I got $8,000. I have to do what I have to do to take care of my family, and I'm not ashamed," she said. "I'm not ashamed at all. I've never sacrificed my morals and values."
And lest you think the fit mommy is sporting not one stitch of clothing in her images, she confirmed: "I am covered,” perhaps referencing her nude-colored, barely-seen underwear. “I had to think about that,” she said. “I reflected on that quite a bit before choosing to do it. I discussed it with my children openly."
Her kids may not care about the risque photo shoot, but having a roof over their heads? Suleman says that’s another matter.
She told Cooper that she is "struggling" with mortgage payments and will have to move because of it. Still, giving her kids too much information about her financial problems is not something she’s willing to do.
"I don't feel it's appropriate to burden [the kids] with that kind of stress," she said. "I do my best to have life for them every day as happy as possible. We play, we enjoy the moments we have together and that's all that really matters."
wasn't she offered over a million dollars to do this just a few years ago? anderson cooper is the slickest pimp out there.
I'd do her after 6-7 Wild Turkeys.
Hey, take care of them babies and do whatever it takes. I have more respect for her then some of these right wing hating politicians..
I would have more respect for her if she left California she is going to drain our welfare system for the next 20 years, these kids need to be put in loving homes with 2 parents. She must have mental problems.
She was paid $8,000? Sounds like she was over paid by about $12,000.
For $8,000 I would by a few Cows and have the beef to eat rather the is worn out retard.
I have no problem with the pictures, but I think that's why they don't recommend that you have 14 kids..... because you won't be able to afford them. DUH
$8000 for breast pictures??? Udderly ridiculous
All you motXhXerf*Xck*er*s out there who dare to badly judge this woman who did not give up her kids but is doing what she can to take care of them. Do you equally judge the likes of Pamela Anderson who did it for more money than she ever needed. What about the rest of Hollywood actresses who bare all in movies to make millions
I for one say, in this case short of commiting a crime, this woman should do whatever the law allows. The hell what anyone thinks (including me)
But Pam's hot.
Did she report that $8,000 as income? No way!!! This trash is EXACTLY why we are in the situation that we are in nationwide.
And Pam can AFFORD 14 kids...this unemployed loser CAN'T!!!
These kids will be teens soon and that is a whole other ballgame. We'll see what happens when the pedal hits the metal.
Sounds like she will be owing Uncle Sam by this time next year as I doubt she is setting a cent aside to cover her taxes.
At $3k a pop per child per year, she's not paying ANY taxes, not a cent. Its OUR taxes that are feeding the breeder.
8,000 dollars? That can't go far in her total budget.
Pair her up with Casey Anthony. That way her financial burden decreases and Casey gets to entertain herself. Its a win win situation
Takes a real salesman to sell snake oil.
It was actually $20,000, but $12k of it went to makeup to cover up her stretch marks.
i am glad i didnt know about it, and did not was my time looking at it.
Posted on I think the striped and the arygle ones are actually pretty adorable, and the others are not that creepy. It's the lips, I think, but that's what makes them unique! Most of those re-craft dolls end up looking the same, so I like unique touches like that. You should definitely revisit this project good luck!
I have absolutely no desire to see those wrinkled melons.
With 14 kids, she apparently doesn't have a problem getting naked. She probably thinks the joke is on the magazine for giving her money for something she would have done for free!
to those who claim they've forgiven her..........seriously? she didn't wrong you. your supposed 'forgiveness' is misplaced and erroneous, purely inapplicable. to those who laud her current efforts at semi-self sufficiency, pls some rudimentary math spells out her utter and permanent inability to ever adequately provide for or support her ill-gotten brood. those children will be a burden on all tax payers til at least reaching adulthood, and in all likelihood beyond. her plan to fame/fortune failed. her children will pay the ultimate price for her selfish, thoughtless behavior. she does them all an extreme, unloving, disservce attempting to 'parent' them herself.
So where can we see the cans?
"I'm not ashamed at all. I've never sacrificed my morals and values."
Hard to sacrifice that which you've never had.
Hear, hear! I find her pathetically amusing.
She has no dignity anyway so what's the big deal? It is a shame that someone is lighter $8g's for something the public will ignore.
C'mon, after 14 kids, does anyone really want to see what she looks like below the Mason Dixon line anyway?
I saw the interview on t.v and just to clarify she got $8,000 not $80,000. Plus, when they say 'nude underwear' they mean 'underwear' the rest was definitely natural. She said she discussed this decision with all her children first and explained the reason she was doing it. I'm sure they totally understood. The oldest is 10.
Another desperate Z-level "celebrity" clutching to the last thread of a fame she never really had. Maybe Kate what's-'er-name needs a room-mate. Stay tuned as she slides even further into desperation.
Blame the doctor who was and admitted to experimenting with her fertility. She is young and made a
But she's still taking care of those kids. She's taken on the responsibility.
She deserves a chance. I feel for her. She could walk away, but she doesn't .
But we're all perfect.
Also, Nadya is not a drug user or engaged in any illegal activity, like other people who receive AFDC, SSI and Medicaid.
She engages in physical exercise and promotes healthy exercise and nutrition. Sometimes she mis-speaks and parrots what she thinks other people, like you cruel posters, want to hear – thus saying snippets of juicy things for the tabloids to run with. As much as I hate her (and her quack doctor's) artificial insemination choice, her children are here and we as loving people need to forgive and move on.
I am disgusted by these immature, cruel, and non-productive comments. Nadya did make some bad choices, but she keeps fighting to earn money to help support her children. I am not sure what you people would've wanted her to have done once it was clear all of the embryos "took" – selectively abort? She stated she could not psychologically do that. Give the 8 up for adoption into separate homes? Then the children would've grown up messed up because they are siblings. Her children are here and they look healthy and cared for. On the Today show the kids were active and exploring – what did you expect? For them just to sit there and drool? The autistic boy appears to receive care (courtesy of SSI and Medicaid) and would you have him not receive it? The split lip on the other one was fixed at the right time when his teeth had come in. I really hated Nadya at first, but it looks like she is at least trying and her children will be okay. THe kids are here and all of your cruel comments accomplish nothing.
She said she didn't compromise her morals/values and that's because she doesn't have any. Her children are suffering from her choices now and will continue to do so until they are grown and gone. They should have all been placed in loving homes, where they could be properly nutured, their health problems could be addressed, and where they would at least stand a chance. I saw on a talk show in the recet past where she claimed her kids were well adjusted. On the same segment they filmed her and her kids, and I don't see how she could make that claim with a straight face. What little brain function she had in the beginning is now gone. She's totally delusional.
I see no evidence that she doesn't love her children. Stop making stuff up.
so, if you're poor your kids should be taken away and given to rich people? That's one of the more ignorant things I've ever heard. Thank you for ranking #1 in dumb comments today!
Newsflash, people that can't afford kids can have them too, it's their RIGHT as human beings and her right as a woman. Deal with it and worry about your life.
Now, the real question is at what point do we cut off gov't support in these situations. We are not obligated to provide for people that can't afford their kids and I think we shouldn't. Once that decision is made, you'll see a lot more adoptions (and unfortunately abortions).
If she is receiving Social Security and food stamps & MAKING $$$$$, isn't she required to report these earnings to
Social Security and the food stamp people ? By the BY, she is very unattractive & that ugly mouth she has.ewwwwww
good grief, i wouldnt give her 8cents
seriously.... does she have boobs? I can't tell, I thought for a second she is a man. Maybe they want to take a pictures of showing her tiny boobs that call freak show.
This is like the "Little old lady who lived in a shoe" story...so many kids, etc. Can't immagine what those big floppies must show off like! Ugh!
How much does she charge to keep her clothes on, take a vow of celibacy, and retire from the media spotlight?
And it was a British magazine ... $8K is more like $4.5K to them LOL!
They don't have dollars over there sweetie.
Please spay or neuter - NOW!
"I discussed it openly with my children" - that's kind of f'd up... :-X
I'll pay her $8,0000 to not take her clothes off... seriously who wants to see those 2 things flopping around dragging on the ground behind her.
She should be sterilized now that she's had 14 kids and is using taxpayer money for food stamps.
14 minutes, 57 seconds of fame, and counting....When will it be over?
She ought to do porn!
bpod Posted on OMG, this is an awesome acucont of your fail.While your bummer basket had less than spectacular results as a gift, your cautionary tale certainly succeeded in making me laugh. Thanks for sharing this!
Who the hell wants to see the floppy breasts of some idiot breeding machine? What was Michelle Duggar busy that day?
My best friend's step-sister makes $12 hourly on the laptop. She has been laid off for 7 months but last month her pay was $8536 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Here's the site to read more makecash30comO
One word comes to mind: Photoshop
Now the state of california is supporting her folks. They are giving her $2,000.00 a month for food. Thats alot of food for baies. Will be 4,000.00 before you know it.
Is that all she got $8,000 for what?
What's done is done. The kids are here and she is trying to figure out how to support them. I'd bet 8k only lasts about 2 months max, it must cost a fortune to feed those kids and just do laundry never mind figure out housing. Sorry to say it may not be long before the kids must be split up and fostered out at least until she can get her life together.
You're awesome Elizabeth for your comment...I'd rather read all the positives here and there are only a few and I appreciate the positives....Nadya has made sooooooooooooo many mistakes with the money, and the way she did this whole thing and now shes paying for it and she know it. And now she is doing what she has to...to make it up to her kids. So many people here suppling negativity are not thinking about that they can fall to from the realities of life and can loose their financial abilities not thinking of the consiquences and the reprocussions that could apply to them that this can happen to them. What's done is done...people get a grip....this can happen to everyone here. At lease I have a heart to forgive and move one and give positives and say think of the kids aspects...so what if Nadya goes back on her word not to receive welfare...she had no choice....Thanks Elizabeth for your wonderful comment.
Why so much hate on this women what is wrong with you people leave her alone i appluad her for doing what she has to do to take care of those kids. People have done horrible things to support their families and no one should be ashamed by any of it. What people should be ashamed of is coming online to bash someone get a life you miserable people. Id marry her in a sec shes very cute.
I agree with you so much gerald...everyone is so busy here trashing Nadya and not considering if they were in the position Nadya's in what would they do...so busy trashing this woman and don't know the flavor and what skeletons are in their closets. What's done is done...Nadya had made many many many mistakes she's trying all she could to provide for her children...whatever she had to do and people just trashes her for doing it...applying for welfare...what other choice she has if no one is paying her enough to take care of her morgage or put food in her kids mouths...that's not her fault if offers she get not paying her enough...she had no choice in the matter....who's to say and what if everyone here who is giving this woman negativity falls from where they are and trying to make it...what would you do if that happens to you? This is why I forgave Nadya in the beginning for her faults and what she did. I saw myself..."what if this is me?" I did something stupid like she but now I got to make it up to them and provide the best way I can. I couldn't handle it...to tell you the truth. I see that Nadya has to do something..whatever she has to make it up to the children...and she gets trashed for it. Everyone who is negative...all of you can fall at one point what would you do if that happens and no one is there to help or give you enough to survive what would you do?
ewwww for real? then I feel sorry for you....
She really thinks she is hot stuff. I saw her on an interview and she said guys chase and run after her in public begging to sleep with her. That is mega sick.
thats ur life babe
She is disgusting and is mentally ill
What an ignoraymi.
God, when will these D list "celebs" go away? Hearing about Nadya Suleman getting chump change to show her breasts? Ew. Since we didn't get to see her succeed at being a mother, we have to watch her trashy downfall into the money game. She'll be in Hustler before you know it, and all her disabled kids will be neglected and taken away. I'd like to cheer for her and see her children happy with their needs met...but it AIN'T happenin'. Not by a long shot.
Since the dr impregnated her and no other father stepped forward he is responsible and should be paying child support to the state for those kids....He knew she was unmarried and because of her craziness she would never be yet he impregnated her anyway which makes him responsible for those kids..the state needs to sue him for support.....
Nadya, is desperate to pay her bills on her on, without help from the Govenment! which is more than can be said
about a lot of folkes, they'll take all the hand outs they can get. Sorry she had to reach this point, where is
Oprah, and other big time Celebs who are always helping kids in foreign countries, what about right here
in the USA?
I wonder how much she could get if she were not a media sideshow freak? $100?
She would probably need to pay someone to look at her grossness.
Clearly this woman thinks that she can have all these kids and that people will feel sorry for her and support her financially. There are so many people out there with 2 and 3 children who have lost their jobs, their homes and live in shelters. Those are the people that I feel sorry for. She did this to herself. She's an idiot.
Well said. Not to mention, shame on the doctor that did the procedure. Do they not do any background checks, or psychological testing before the proceed? I feel sorry for all those kids!
that's 4K per boobie!
You mean someone actually paid to photograph last weeks helium filled ballons?
...and she's fit to be a parent?
What happened to her mouth? It looks stretched out, like, all those babies came out her mouth.
Her lips have had surgery to make them bigger. She admitted that.
that is so hilarious! U get a gold star for that comment
14 future crack addicts on welfare. Great. Thanks so much for adding to the world over-population. They would love you in Mexico or India.
Wasnt she from Mexico?
Why is this drunk stinking pig on CNN?
Hold on a sec.... When this thin popped out those kids it was widely reported she was on Social Security Long term Disability for a back injury.. ( like having 8 kids helped that injury?) Now let us not forget that Social Security pays you half your benefit amount for each child in your care... just assuming she gets 800.00 a mnth as her benefit.. then she would receive 400.00 for each child under 18.. thats is a huge payday.. what is she doing with the money? she has admitted getting food stamps, and also ome of her kids are on disability for their own ailments.. supposedly Autism... and ADHD.. so someone is LYI|NG!
You are incorrect about the Social Security payments All the childred combined must divide up the 50%, they do not each get it. A fact- I was an authorizer for SSA
As usual, we get saddled with the consequences of people making irresponsible decisions.
SSDI does pay some to your kids, but not half, and not for each one. A SSDI payment of $908/per month, with 3 children under 18, and each child gets $68. $68 x 3 is not half of $908. If she gets $800 each child may get $10, but I doubt it is that much. js
She did think she would get a windfall, a TV show, something, and be set for life when she had all those kids. Sadly, for the kids, it proved otherwise. She is a joke.
The Octopig is a disgusting human being.
The Octopig is so ugly...her face can stop a clock.
The Octopig has the I.Q. of Snooki....(if Snooki had down syndrome, which is totally plausable).
The Octopig should have her own show...on Animal Planet, called "The Octopig Show".
not exactly the cash she was expected to collect after expelling these eight babies from her in-vitro adventure. She is now struggling instead of being rich, comfortable and having round the clock care for all of her kids. Her plan failed but...hey....she is looking good, even if the kids are out of control and out of luck. That's life !
She should take 12 or 15 of babies to Hong Kong. Sell for much much money. Be very rich. In china babies used to make delicious stew. Very healthy. Also good for complexion.
You have a sick sense of humor. Also very funny. Made me laugh, anyway.
She's doing a better job raising all those kids than some cracked up freaks locking their kids in a closet.
Ms. Lori, you are the only person on this blog that said anything worth reading. Let's get this woman some credit for at least trying to be a mother to her children. She obviously cares enough for all of them to manage the best way she can. Besides how many of you out there could raise 14 children by yourself? We all make mistakes and she is no different than anyone else. So what's in your closet???? If its emplty than you can cast the first stone, if not than SHUT UP!!!!!!!! We are all past the point of talking about why she had so many children, that's no longer the point..... they are here and nothing can be done about that but to care for them the best way she knows how.
Ms Lori and People Please I think you're both awesome in this matter because whats done is done..Nadya made a lot of mistakes in the past with her thinking and the way she did this whole thing with having all those kids and I forgave Nadya a longtime ago for it. Nadya is doing everything possible to provide for her family..she can't help if no one is paying her enough to take care of the $450,000 morgage or put food in the kids mouths even if she has to go our and humiliate herself no one is giving her enough to make ends meet so if she has to make her way to applying for welfare then it has to be to help put food in the kids mouths. If I had it to do to provide for my family I would go out and do what she did. I often wonder whats in everyone else closets here. What if you had no way of providing for your kids and you're loosing your home...and you've made mistakes and trying to make up for them...to all negative people here what would you do if you were in that situation?
Eight thousand was bout twenty eight thousand too much.
Mr Ed, I think you are stupid and wish you crash your truck.....
YOUR THE ONE THAT'S NASTY MR.ED A BIG OLD NASTY IGNORANT RED NECK WITH A BIG RIG THAT IS NOISY NASTY AND STINKING JUST LIKE YOU!!!!!!
I wonder if the paid her the 8 thousand to put them nasty things up where nobody has to look at em?
When I'm out hauling loads of produce and tater chips in my big rig I don't want to be day dreaming bout no disgusting thing like her. Us Americans need some pretty gals to be thankin about. Not some scary witch that had 14 kids.
Dear Mr. Ed
While we "git yer point", please try not to make all of those very fine American "Truckers" look ignorant.
Well that is pretty gross. I'm a big rig truck driver from Texas and even I don't want to see them nasty things.
Mr. Ed, you sound like that nasty truck driver in "Thelma and Louise". Careful, remember what happened to his truck.
Oh well Ed. You still have the Glory Hole.
Was it $8,000 or $80,000?
Might be time to actually hire an editor.
I've noticed the entire website could use better editing. Give THIS girl a job hey!
Oh please. . how impressive can her boobs be? 80k Seriously? She's hideous inside and out.
REAL Job ? As if taking care of i4 kids isn't a real job .......................
Of course that doesn't pay the bills-----so why did she have 14 kids......That's the REAL question.
answer: BECAUSE SHES AN IDIOT WHO WANTED TO BE FAMOUS! now shes an idiot with 14 kids who WAS famous and still wont find a job
Where's the real fathers, and where is their real support?
so where are the pictures?
Google is your friend.
Does she have a real job? $8OOO? Why didn't they pay that to someone worth looking at, like me! Lol Just having some fun, you all seem to like that kind of stuff and it's Friday!
Oh silly me! They put the , in the wrong place, I thought $8OOO, it's $8O,OOO. @ Dave down there. Yea, taking care of all those children is a giant job, I agree. She still needs a job to care for them, though, right? I don't have any children and I need all the hours I can get. Lol
Well, send me some pics and we'll see;)
That what happens when you decide to have 14 children.
That is almost 8 months of salary at full time minimum wage
All because she had a bunch of kids,which is something anyone can do,and took off her shirt,also something anyone can do
I think Im gonna go rob a bank or something
...but plastic surgery IS ok before taking care of your kids.
Maybe her and Trayvon's family can get together. She can show off her breasts and Trayvon's family can show off his dead body. Just another ne gro if u ask me
Ok so she got paid $8000. I hope the IRS and state is paying attention. She receives public aid and should have to pay all of that money back to the state department of social services. I'm tired of my tax dollars going on to aid people who are of able body to work or at least make an income.
@ericmccowans racist remarks:
ericmccowaneatablakdik – I hope u burn in hell for those remarks U sissy, bet you wouldnt dare say that to anyones face, if so meet me at the st louis bread in the loop and I will kikurazz.
$8,0000 you say? I will take infinity billion moneys
