Tuesday Weisblog: For once, I actually agree with her

3447251263_a893b1228e_m“What the heck am I going to do? I have to put on this strong face, and I have to pretend like I don’t regret it.”

These are the words of the one-and-only Nadya Suleman, a/k/a “The Octomom,” who has been the subject of a couple of my blogs in the past.

In an interview with “Radar Online” (whoever they are), Suleman comes clean with her feelings of guilt … but one wonders if they’re real feelings or if she’s just thickening the plot for her upcoming reality show.

She claims she has “romantic feelings” for the man whose, um, “bodily fluids” were used to create these kids – and here’s the best part – she didn’t tell him she was going to have more kids with said fluids.

“I blame myself for bringing this on my own,” Octo said. “These are my choices. I coerced him into helping me every year. … The more kids I had, the stronger connection I had with him, and I couldn’t even imagine anyone else, and he knew that. I went behind his back, and I feel so much guilt, and I want to apologize to him.”

She continued with this nugget of wisdom: “I screwed up my life. I screwed up my kids’ lives.”

Well, Nadya, you’ve made millions off his whole thing, and you stand to make even more. You still have a chance to make it right for the kids. As for you and the “fluid donor,” well, I don’t know if that situation can ever be repaired.

I want to at least believe her conscience is still intact, even if her mind isn’t. But it’s mighty suspicious that she makes these startling confessions a short time before her reality show debuts.

Folks, this woman is a train wreck. But you know that old saying about train wrecks … even though you know it’s going to be awful, you just can’t turn your head away.

For the same reason, I’ll probably watch the first episode or two of this freak show. I’ll just make sure I do it on an empty stomach.

Friday Weisblog: Octuplets revisited

If you are not already questioning Nadya Suleman’s decision-making skills, this will most likely steer you in that direction: American taxpayers will be picking up the $1.3 million hospital bill incurred when she recently gave birth to her octuplets.

Don’t get agitated yet, folks … because it gets worse. Significantly worse. Here’s what else you get to foot the bill for: The unemployed Suleman had already been caring for her other six children by living in her parents’ house and getting $490 per month in food stamps. Additionally, she gets Social Security disability payments for three of her children – and the food stamp total is pretty much a certainty to go up with the new additions to her family.

Octuplets. Can you imagine?!

Octuplets. Can you imagine?!

That’s still not all! According to the Los Angeles Times, the hospital where the octuplets are expected to spend seven to 12 weeks has requested reimbursement from Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program, for care of the premature babies.

Over the course of these 14 kids’ childhoods, that means untold millions of dollars being sucked up by this family.

The $64,000 question begs to be asked: If she’s on food stamps, where did she get the money for the fertility treatments?

Forget the big banks and insurance companies. The government needs to earmark some of the bailout money to the American people for paying for this woman’s blatant misuse of a system put in place for those who really need it.

I try the best I can to keep this blog relatively noncontroversial, but this woman’s actions bother me. I’m sure a reality show/movie/book deal/talk show appearances are coming soon, which will make this even more of a mockery of the system than it already is.

I was at least glad to see that even Nadya’s mom blasted Nadya for this. Good for her! After all, her “golden years” just went down the toilet. Now, she is saddled with the chore of raising kids because her daughter couldn’t even afford the ones she had prior to adding eight more health-challenged infants into the mix!

This is an outrage, and I hope the rest of the country can see this for what it really is.
