Since it’s April Fool’s Day, I simply couldn’t resist. Except this story is totally for real.
Nadya Suleman, better known as the Octomom, is back in the news again Seems that Octonut’s daddy bought a house for his daughter to raise her 14 children in, who are between the ages of 1 and 8. But when the $450,000 balloon payment came due, Big Daddy didn’t have the coin to make good on the note. So he defaulted, which of course threatened to put mom and her litter out in the street.
But not to worry. Because the People for Ethical Treatment to Animals (PETA) threw Suleman a bone. PETA offered her $5000 if she’d put a sign in her yard that said “Don’t let your dog or cat become an octomom, always spay or neuter.” And to sweeten the deal, PETA threw in a month’s supply of veggie dogs and veggie burgers.
Suleman has the sign in her yard and presumably a freezer full of non-meat products.
But PETA was not the only association to jump in with offers of help. One other philanthropic group threw a bone(r) her way – Vivid Entertainment, the world’s largest purveyor of adult entertainment, generously offered to pay off her house if she would, you guessed it, make a porn film.
Of course you know where this is going. Don’t make me say it.
I can’t fathom Roger Moore or Maud Adams find this amusing.
“No porn. Just PETA,” Suleman reportedly said through her attorney. “Nadya prefers animals over men.”
Don’t you think the attorney could have phrased it just a little better?
It seems a bit odd that any ethical fertility doctor would allow a single woman with six children to conceive eight more in vitro when she is living on disability, worker’s comp and student loans in her mother’s house. At least the Duggars had their 19 the old fashioned way and apparently have not resorted to porn to pay for their tribe.
I suppose Suleman was counting on offers of everything from diapers to six figure reality show deals rolling in after the miraculous octuplets arrived. Now Octonut wonders why she has to contemplate offers of making a porn flick to pay her bills. Who’s the fool?
