"Octomom": I have a lot of energy

OctomomWhen “Octomom” Nadya Suleman appeared on “The View” Wednesday, she explained how she provides for her children, her future plans and the fact that she might not be “all there.”

But the “Octomom” was unfazed when Whoopi Goldberg told her many people probably wonder what goes on in her head.

“Maybe you’re not quite all there,” Goldberg said.

Suleman simply responded with, “I’ve asked myself that for years too” before, once again, laughing at a decibel more suited for the pied piper.

“I digress very easily because I have so much energy,” Suleman said as the women of “The View” fought for her attention.

When asked if she was done having children, the mother of 14 said she would definitely be open to having another child if the time is right.

    i think this woman needs to be admitted to a mental institution or just loves pain cause 14 is way to many this ain't cheaper by the dozen its accually MORE expensive by the child...any have an opiion on that?

    This broad will say anything to get attention. Do you know how many times she was on Dr. Phil after she had her babies? Like at least 2 times a week – sometimes more! And do you know what she said on EVERY episode? "I'm definately done, 14 is plenty. I just wanted 1 more...not 8" And now just a few months later she "wouldn't mind having another" ?!!?!??!?! ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING?!?!?!

    I saw her on The View......one of those rare times when all 5 ladies paused...looked at each other and without words they all agreed...."this lady is truly a headcase!"

    Granted she is a little off, but she really seems to love her kids. If she's out hustling media events to make cash everyone hates on her, if she gets assistance people hate on her. She can't win. What's done is done and the kids are here. If she doesn't take care of them then the state will have to. What about the Duggar family? Come on, up until the 19th they didn't need assistance, but after having their latest so early unless they r multi millionaires they are going to have real problems. Each day the baby is in the NICU it has to cost a small fortune. Even after Ms Duggar had pre-eclampsia and a barely viable child they r still insisting they will have more. Octomom is no more off than they r.

    The whole thing is very sad to me. Whoopi is right "she's not all there" and I feel sooooo sorry for those little ones. Emotionally, psychologically, they will never get what all children deserve: lots of love, attention (the right kind) and a normal mother....

    And what doctor is going to give her fertility drugs-again-when the last time there was alot of controversy as to why this was done because this lady is not normal. Where does she have the free time for everything when, not only does she have 14 children, but she has a special needs child? I would think all these issues would take up all her time? Oh, thats's right. She has people doing all this for her!! , and we're paying for everything because I'm sure the government is paying for all her needs and it comes out of our pockets. She needs to get her head on straight, if that's even possible

    Why on earth are people rewarded for being stupid? This woman should have her head examined. This woman can't take care of the kids she has; why would anyone allow her to produce more; more for society to take of.... Is this fair to her children? Or to the public who is paying for their care. Give me a break!

  12. Get serious

    I have always wondered how a woman who was on disability for a back injury thought her back would be able to withstand a multiple pregnancy...she is nothing more than a welfare/ disability scam artist. Her children need to be removed immediately and she needs to be sterilized. She needs to be in jail for fraud.....

    She cant be that busy with all her children if she has time to appear on the View- please do not bring any more children into this world- I think you have your hands full- I am not sure it is possible for you to have a single child as shown in the past- just work on providing a quality life for all the children you have brought into this world- not by being an absentee mother

    @Diana – ROFLMFAO! You're hilarious...I totally agree!
    This chick is a "flippin idiot!" How could you possible think of having more children when 1) you already have 14 to begin with 2) you DON'T have a freaking job 3) you're crazier than a lobotomized psych patient??? Totally beyond idiocy!

    That maniacal laugh of hers was just too much today. She doesn't digress because she has lots of energy. She goes off on tangents because she's a flippin idiot!

    I watch the view everyday, but didn't today because she was on there. I think the exposure and fame is exactly was she is looking for.Why reward her behavior?

    I agree. She is just a scammer. A mom with two kids has a hard time enough to provide for them and care for them and raise them properly. What can one expect out of someone with 14 kids ?!

    No, she is "not all there". She cannot provide for the children she has. She is making babies for profit.

    Really? More children? 14 isn't enough? I personally always thought Eight was enough – ha! No seriously, it's not ok that she is having all these kids and didn't have a job. She is lucky that people became infatuated with her, or else she would be living in a van down by the river.
