TLC President Says "No TV Show" For Octoplets Mom


I still am so sad about this whole octoplet baby story. I worry about those babies and their future. I almost was relieved (but also kind of angry) when I heard/read rumors that the mom, Nadya Suleman, would maybe be getting a show on TLC.

Relieved in the sense maybe those babies (and Suleman's other children), would financially be taken care of at least. And if they remained under close the public's eye, hopefully their lives would be happy and healthy in every way.

Angry because this "octo mom", who looks suspiciously like Angelina Jolie, would perhaps be using these little precious babies for her own gain. Maybe I am too cynical, but something about this woman irks the heck out of me everytime I see her on tv.

Anyway, today comes word from TLC President Eileen O'Neill that there will be no show for Suleman.

"TLC is not pursuing any program at this time with Nadya Suleman," O'Neill told Us in a statement. "We wish the family well."

And the "octo mom" has had to shut down her website where she had been been asking for donations to help with her eight babies. Seems that Suleman had been receiving death threats online.

Sigh. I feel sad. Poor babies.
