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 who should get a Chris Brown beat down.

Does your brain ever shift gears? Seriously get some help you're obsessed with Chris Brown as your comments clearly show! This story is about Octomom, take your obsession to a psychiatrist!

Seems like a huge breakthrough for Nadya, not everyone wants to have kids.

Look at the poor older kids..... probably don't even get a thank you from their mother for helping her out..... and where were the other 2 kids ??? She's a joke and I can't stand to hear her talk.... people who constantly talk about being in control and being happy are only fooling themselves.....

It's a shame you weren't allowed to carry a gun with 1 bullet on board.

the real diva    

i don't blame kristin.if someone is paying the fare for a plane the last thing they need is to listen to crying kids throughout the flight.that octo mom should have her kids taken away. she is incompetent and she should not have that many kids. she is using them just to get money..that's all those kids are..money bags for her.

"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."

Good grief, who writes this stuf..."her and the brood"...grammar/english 101; it's SHE AND THE BROOD...i.e., her didn't take up most of the business class...SHE took up most of the business class. TMZ internals...did you even graduate from High School...?????

I think Nadya's rep hit right on it. Grow A baby. Singular. This eight babies when you already have six on welfare shows she doesn't care about anyone but herself. That many screaming kids on a plane is enough to set anyone off. Add a two hour flight delay because of the screaming and she's lucky she didn't fly home in pieces.

I would have tried to change planes, too. To yell at someone with a crying baby is stupid. Does she really want her children to cry? The problem is NO ONE likes octomom. She is trash and using those children for self-promotion. Best bet, just to get away from her, or try to help her with the children. It is not the babies fault. Poor kids, especially the older ones.

Wow, I can't believe how mean spirited you all are. I guess you're all perfect and have never made bad decisions that you've had to live with. I'm sure she is totally overwhelmed! I'm sure she can't afford "more help". Whatever the reasons for traveling with that many children, I'm sure it was paid for and probably something that might lead to more income for her. She probably has to sell her soul to the devil to support them all. At least she's living with her dilemma. She hasn't put them all up for adoption or just abandoned them.
To the person who thinks she wasn't carrying her babies properly. Have you ever tried to make a dignified exit with squirming toddlers, while keeping an eye on your other kids and handle your carry-ons, all while multiple judgmental eyes are on you, with few offers of assistance in a narrow, confined space? I'd love to see how well you do under such cir****tances!
Geez, why do we so love to kick people when they're down?!!

There should be a required ratio of adult to young child passengers in a party traveling on planes. One parent can NOT take adequate care of that many toddlers, and it is not other passengers' problem to deal with.

IN MY OPINION    

Good for the actress! It's bad enough you are in a confined space for amount of hours; then you have to deal with 8 screaming children. ARGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH I would have gotten off too.
