Controversial Mom?s in the News


The Octuplets mom, 33 year old, Nadya Suleman, might just give Britney Spears a run for her money this year when it comes to controversy and parenting. Her story just gets crazier and crazier, and here is the thing there are 8 tiny babies still in the hospital in Los Angeles plus 6 other children ranging from ages 2 – 7 needing a mothers full care and attention. Now I can’t say that I blame her, but the new mom is looking for deals to help foot the bill for raising all her children. She is looking to Diane Sawyer and Oprah Winfrey to bail her out with a $2 million interview. The new mom has also been inundated with offers for other TV shows, book deals and other business opportunities. She has hired a public relations firm and agent help her deal with all of this but at this time she has made no decisions.


More details have come out this week about Ms. Suleman. Not only is she a single parent but there is NO ex – to even help her out. IT seems that has been obsessed with having a big family since she was a teenager and it looks like her dream has come true. IT seems that she became pregnant through using a sperm donor. IT also appears that Nadya has been living off her parents in a small 2 bedroom apartment and has nearly bankrupted them. Although she is currently the most sought after mom there is so much controversy surrounding this situation both medical and ethical it will be interesting to see what transpires. But admit it, you want to see her, see all those children and watch what happens. I know I am curious. It seems like an impossible task caring for, raising and supporting that family. No matter how much help she has at the end of the day she is the mom and responsible from bringing up these children and that will be no easy task. I just hope she is able to accomplish it with as much heart and soul as Kate Gosselin of “Jon and Kate Plus 8”.
Ok, on to our other mom of the hour. Britney’s big news is that both her sons, Jayden and Sean Preston, will be joining her on the road for her 3 month Circus tour. Although Kevin Federline has primary custody, Britney has visitation rights that allow her to be with the boys about 50% of the time. Britney couldn’t be more excited about the tour and the boys. Things certainly seem to be looking up for the pop princess. The tour kicks off March 3, in New Orleans. Opening for Britney will be the Pussycat Dolls and a huge circus production will be involved in the show. It sounds like it will be an awesome comeback for Brit and her fans.
