Octomom in Plane Fight with '3rd Rock' Star

7/9/2011 7:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Flying on a plane next to 12 screaming kids is enough to drive anyone insane -- and that's exactly what set Kristen Johnston off last night ... and the 12 kids belonged to Octomom!

Nadya Suleman was flying back from New York City last night and her and the brood took up most of the business class section of the plane. The flight was delayed for more than two hours and Nadya tried to silence the kids -- to no avail.

The crying babies annoyed the "3rd Rock from the Sun" star so much, she marched over to Nadya and told her keep it down.

Nadya's rep tells TMZ Nadya fired back, "How would you like me to keep eight 2-year-olds quiet?" To which Kristen allegedly responded, "Get more help!"

The rep says Nadya shouted back, "Why don't you grow a baby and get a life!" 

Eventually Kristen returned to her seat, but according to Nadya's rep ... Kristen got off the plane and never returned. 

We got Nadya when she belatedly landed at LAX, and she had no idea Johnston was a celebrity, telling us, "I guess there's some people that don't like kids." 


Attempts to reach Johnston's reps were unsuccessful.

More people should have complained and gotten octo & her brood kicked off the plane. If you can control your children, you have no business flying on a plane or being out in public, period. Your children are YOUR responsibility, others should have to put up with their behavior, especially if they are causing problems. She needs to have all of her kids taken away from her.

Look--its over, these kids are here to stay. Kristen was a real B---- to go over and tell this overwhelmed woman to keep so many kids quiet. Kristen should have quietly left the plane. Enough of the criticism for Nadya--how long are you going to punish her--at least she stays with these kids and tries to raise them.

if the today show paid for the plane tickets, then they also should paid for nannies to accompany the children on the flight. Octomom has no business flying that many kids without proper supervision and help.

The airlines should have taken Nadya and the kids off the plane instead of delaying the flight for two hours while she tried to get them under control.

Good for Kristen for speaking up on behalf of all the other frustrated passengers. If Nadya didn't have enough help to watch the kids, she shouldn't have flown.

Who the flip does this POS think she is? Octos***, seriously...You don't even HOLD your kids properly & uh, clearly Ameriaha (?) the 9 yr. old is a FAR better mom than you'll ever be! That poor child & your other 13 deserve a better life, ANY w/o YOU in it! I seriously wish you'd slither back under the rock you crawled out of. Oh & for someone with a T.V. IN EVERY ROOM OF THE HOUSE...really? You haven'*****ched t.v. in 10 years? Oh do you mean besides John & Kate's anniversary show where you did a video AFTER you just had more plastic surgery done to your hideous face? Everything about you makes my skin crawl!

How long? For as long as she continues to act like the clueless grifting mental patient she is, or until CPS takes her kids away, whichever comes first.

Can you imagine the STINK with 8 toddlers in poopy diapers?
Added on to the noise and miserable kids driving everybody nuts?

What does anybody expect from lowlife, selfish, sociopathic trash like Octo?

What did Octo think would happen with EIGHT kids at once?
A reality show?

Nadya cannot control those kids at all.
I wish the Child Protection Agency would take all of those kids away from her and put them up for adoption, she already said she hated her kids so why leave them with her?
Some of the pictures on the internet even shows it, she cannot control them, they are not disciplined children and she's a failure as a mother. The doctor who performed on her wanted to remove most of the eggs from her when she was pregnant but she refused, I mean come on, she doesn't even have a job to support those kids, she's living off her kids and I consider that child abuse, those kids should be put up for adoption else where since this woman is totally crazy.
She's a disgrace and a disgusting woman, I mean one or two ok but not 14 children? Especially now with such financial difficulties going on in America, living off of tax payers money. And Miss Jonhston is right, if Nadya cannot control her kids, either get more nannies or give them up for adoption.
Everywhere Nadya goes with her kids, you can see she barely has control over them and then ontop of that she wants a man???
Ha, which man in their right mind would want a woman with 14 kids???? Run fellas run :)

9 minutes ago Someone pays all that money to share a flight with this nut job and her ill- behaved children? There is no way AA should have allowed all these babies to fly without a better ratio of adult supervision (and Nadya doesn't rate as an adult!). What a concept - instead of 12 biz class seats, why not a charter jet NBC.

Exactly, that many sets on a NY/LA flight had to have been over 18-20k!

(2-3 adults / 12 kids / business class) A Round Trip charter would only have cost a couple grand more!

Who in the world wrote this article? What poor grammar! "Her and the brood"? I hope you mean, "she and the brood".

I can see both sides of this. I think some people lack tolerance of children, holding them to an unrealistic standard of quietness. I think kids are a fact of life and they're often noisy. On the other hand I've been on a plane with two arguing, very naughty, children sitting behind me. For a seven hour flight. It was hell. One hour would have been enough. Ten minutes would have been enough. Their parents did nothing. It must of been nightmarish for other passengers on Octomom's flight and, given how stressful it was, Kristen Johnston's point was valid. Although I doubt Octomom was thinking straight with all that noise. I think she should try really, really, hard to have more than one adult there, just out of politeness to other passengers. It's often hard enough for one parent with a toddler throwing a tantrum.

Actually it sounds like Kirsten was kind to her. I would have really ripped her a new a-hole by the time i've snapped and am confronting her for being such a miserable excuse for a mother.

I thought this slut doesn't have any help? So who's the chick carrying her children? Can you IMAGINE being on a plane with all those unwieldily sperms on the loose? F-CK THAT

What I don't get is she doesn't have money for her rent but can afford 13 (12 kids and hers) business class tickets? The women is an attention seeker, that's the only reason she had all those kids.
Instead of being polite to people as it is her fault her kids are loud, she has an attitude about it. The lady has made a mock of herself.
