Dr. Phil & Oprah -- Help Octomom, Stat!

3/22/2010 3:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The guy who sold Octomom Nadya Suleman her La Habra house is now asking Dr. Phil and Oprah Winfrey to help pay off her loan so the crib doesn't go into foreclosure.

Dr. Phil, Octomom, Oprah

TMZ has obtained an email sent Saturday by seller Amer Haddadin to one of Dr. Phil's producers, asking the famous doc for help. According to the email, "Dr. Phil and Operah (sic) took personal interest in the steps that led to Nadia (sic) moving to the house. I have a hope that both Dr. Phil and Operah will help me in timely and fair solution."

You'll recall Dr. Phil and his people were all over the La Habra house before Octo moved in.

As we first reported, Octo is late making the $450,000 balloon payment to the seller and he'll initiate foreclosure proceedings if she doesn't pay by the end of the day tomorrow.

The seller's rep tells TMZ Octo's lawyer told him she shouldn't have to pay because the roof and plumbing are bad. And, her lawyer wants to mediate the mess -- not go through foreclosure.

No immediate word from Dr. Phil or Oprah.

UPDATE: According to the big O's rep, "Oprah has not financially assisted Ms. Suleman in the past and has no plans to do so in the future."

UPDATE 2: A rep for Dr. Phil tells us, "Dr Phil has no plans to become involved in the Suleman family's current situation."

NO NO NO!!!! She made the choice, it was NO accident, to have the bazillion kids and leave a good job. It's time for her to pay the consequences of such a poor decision.

Why would this dimwit agree to a balloon payment that large when she knows she's living on government freebies? Where did she think that money would come from? Was she expecting another freebie?

Um...when you BUY a house, the plumbing and roof are YOUR responsibility. If you didn't get a proper inspection before buying, then you are SOL. I think she expected more people/media/producers were gonna fork over money for her story so she didn't think a balloon payment would be a problem. This is what happens when you intentionally make bad life decisions.

If they give in and pay for this, it will send a HUGE message to all of the people like her that live to work the system...OPRAH AND DR. PHIL PLEASE DO NOT ENABLE THIS PERSON! She made the choice to have all of these children, why does she expect everyone else to pay her way? She thinks she does not have to pay her way... wake her up!

IF OCTO-LEACH HADN'T SPENT ALL HER MONEY ON COSMETIC SURGERIES, DESIGNER CLOTHES, HANDBAGS, EXPENSIVE MAKE-UP, NEW CARS, JACUZZI TUBS ... AND ALL THE THINGS SHE SQUANDERED MONEY ON FOR HERSELF ... ETC ETC: SHE WOULD HAVE HAD PLENTY OF MONEY TO PUT TOWARD PAYING OFF HER HOUSE.
SHE GOT ONE MILLION DOLLARS FOR EXPLOITING THE BIRTH OF HER BABIES. TAXPAYERS GOT SOAKED ANOTHER MILLION DOLLARS - PLUS FOR HER BABIES' HOSPITAL BILL. TAXPAYERS SUPPORTED HER THE LAST DECADE ,,, FOR EVERY ONE OF HER FOURTEEN (14) KIDS, CLOTHING, FOOD, ETC ETC

SHE IS INCAPABLE OF HANDLING MONEY AND DESERVES NO HELP BEYOND WHAT SHE'S ALREADY SCAMMED FROM WELL-MEANING SUCKERS AND TAXPAYERS.

She and others like her are the reason California is in dire financial straits. She is a blood-sucking leech.

Does that take nerve or what asking Phil and Oprah to step in.
Maybe those of us who work every day to support our families which often isn't easy should ask someone to step in and give us a break.
Some nerve.

Dr. Phil of all people needs to mind him own business for once when it comes to Octomom, and Oprah should not get involved because the more you help her the more she spends money without any thought, the more she will always need more help and money.
Have you noticed that she is able to go out to clubs, shopping sprees, etc., I am working and I can not do that.


I think now is the time that all of the children need to be removed from care her but she would need to work to pay for her all of the children's cost of upkeep.

Now why in hell should Oprah, Dr. Phil or anyone pay almost a half mil so she is free & clear of any responsibilities. She should look into subsidized housing like everyone else who has too many kids & can't pay for them. The government(we taxpayers) will always be there to help the irresponsibles.

I guess expecting this creature to spend her money wisely is asking too much. If it had brains to begin with, it wouldnt be in the mess it and its brood are in now.
This is a microcosm of the free-loading macrocasm that this country is plagued with. In the end, she and the rest of the moochers will get their way, like they usually do, or you will be labeled a hater if you dont.
