Octuplets Mom may have to turn to Porn to pay for the babies…The things people will do for money…

February 27, 2009

In continuing with the theme this week of winning the lottery ( yes, I have my MegaMillions ticket and yes, I have been dreaming about winning during my drive to work today and the company that I would start.  For the really curious, it would be a sports/entertainment/advertising legal representation firm)

When I got to thinking about Ronin and his comment about how having money means not wasting time.  I waste a lot of time looking for bargains, both at Safeway, where I try to only buy things that are Club card values, or on Craigslist, where I scored the Too Old 73 inch Mitsubishi HDTV set that we watch all the games on. I only paid 150 dollars to buy it AND to have it moved from Redwood City to the Too Old HQ.

You know how we do!  Sports look great on this...

The issue is all the time that I had used to find the good deal, then to drive out there from work to pay the guy and to have E around (priceless, or worthless, either way…) to have someone home when it dropped it off to help him (again, thanks Ronin for the mid day assist)

If I had a truckload of money, I would not have to wait around for the good deal.  That is why I wasn’t really mad at Bush the elder when he didn’t know the price of milk or a loaf of bread.  HE IS THE LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD? When does he have time to clip coupons and go shopping at Safeway or Lucky?  He doesn’t, but someone does all of it for him.

This, brings me to the point of the post.  What would you do to get by?  For some, that is not a tough question.  Many of us would talk the Malcolm X rhetoric, “By any means necessary”… If you are the Mom to 14 children, with no discernible income, what would you to do pay for the kids?

At least she isnt spending her loot on starbucks...

Porn war breaks out over octuplets’ mum

February 27, 2009 – 8:34AM

The mother of octuplets born last month in California has been targeted by rival bids from adult entertainment companies, including an offer of $US1 million ($A1.54 million) to star in a porn movie.

Nadya Suleman, who has been at the centre of a fierce debate in the media and medical arenas since giving birth to eight children last month, is now embroiled in a public relations spat involving rival purveyors of porn.

Los Angeles-based Vivid Entertainment, the world’s largest adult film producer, announced that it had offered Suleman $US1 million ($A1.54 million) plus a year of health insurance if the unemployed 33-year-old starred in a porn movie.

Who knew that porn companies had a heart?  A million dollars is a lot of money and then she could start her own website and sick and twisted pervs would log in to see her do things… I mean, people are sick and twisted…but damn, health care is expensive and its a year.  Babies do get sick and then spread it to you and others…

But, when life is at its bleakest, a ray of light shines in, and guess who rides in to save the day?  Its from another porn company, although this time, they really have the best interest of the family and mother

But rival porn company Pink Visual has responded by urging Suleman not to participate in the Vivid movie – and offered her a year’s supply of nappies for her octuplets if she turns down the offer.

Pink Visual’s manager Kim Kysar said in a letter to Suleman that the company’s offer was being made as a gesture of “social responsibility”.

“It simply isn’t in your best interest, and more importantly, in the best interest of your children, for you to become a porn star,” Kysar wrote.

“As you know, there’s a great deal of stigma attached to being a porn star. It’s not something that a mother should take lightly, as this decision will most assuredly affect the lives of your children, and not in a positive way.”

The company said it was offering Suleman one year’s supply of “real cloth nappies”.

“It’s not a million dollars but accepting our offer will directly benefit your children in two ways: they will be assured of having clean, dry nappies and their mother will not become the subject of endless ridicule,” Kysar wrote.

Suleman was not immediately available for comment.

The porn public relations offensive is the latest twist in the saga of Suleman and her octuplets, who were born on January 26.

Her case has provoked outrage from health experts and the public after it emerged the babies were conceived through in vitro fertilisation and that Suleman already had six children under the age of seven.

To make matters worse, think about what she did to have the treatments to have the baby… The Huffington Post continues on this thread…

An in-vitro procedure typically costs between $8,000 and $15,000. Asked on NBC how she was able to afford the treatments, Suleman said she had saved money and used some of the more than $165,000 in disability payments she received after being injured in a 1999 riot at a state mental hospital where she worked.

She also told NBC that she does not intend to go on welfare, though her publicist confirmed Monday that Suleman already receives food stamps and child disability payments to help feed and care for her six other children.

Suleman’s publicist Mike Furtney said she receives $490 a month in food stamps. Furtney said Suleman did not want to disclose the nature of her children’s disabilities or the nature of those payments.

If I could but in here for a moment and say something that some of us have been thinking… How does this chick have a publicist if she 1) does not have a job or a stable source of income outside some student loans and some aid from the state 2) is not looking for a job, or has finished college?

All of these people just see this woman as the next meal ticket.  At least the guy who “finished in a cup” for her has offered to help out, since he knows that she is kinda trifling…

“In her view these are just payments made for people with legitimate needs and are not, in her view, welfare,” Furtney said. “She just believes that there are programs for people with needs and she and her children qualify for some of them.”

Part of me just says take the porn money, because its the first time that you have done something honest to earn a buck since you have become part of the chatter of the country…maybe this is the reason that Kaiser doesn’t want to release the babies to someone so shiftless and lazy…
