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.

She's the chick from the show that gave us Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Yeah grow a baby first (or 8) then get a career you one step away from being a D celebrity.

People with kids don't realize how seriously annoying their children are. We all understand a certain amount of child whining and we also know the parents of said child most of the time ain't happy about it either. However, then there are a whole bunch of parents out there who let their kids climb all over things in doc offices and everywhere else and that irritates the hell out of me. Being a parent means you train your kids to behave in social situations, and if they know you're serious (cuz you make them behave at home too), they're generally good. Makes you wonder what their homes are like and just who runs them b/c it's not the parents. Guess those are the folks who expect everyone else including the public school system to discipline, educate & feed their children.

Hamptons dude    

This lady is crazy!! Child Protective Services needs to take those kids away!!
Suleman can't control, or care for, all those kids.

I sincerely hope Nadya Suleman reads this! You have NO control over these unruly children you say you are giving yourself to. YOU should be REQUIRED to attend parenting classes and be able to fully support all of the children you had your Dr. create in a petri dish, including 1 nanny for every 2 children! Your selfishness knows no bounds. Anyone who saw you and your small village on the Today Show yesterday knows you're in over your head. To see the staff of the Today Show caring for your kids you didn't even know had wandered away and then save them from mishap after mishap was horrifying and I assure you that if some never had a drink before yesterday, after YOUR segment, they TIED ONE ON!!! That poor man who sold you his house - the poor SOB knows even if he does foreclose he'll never get what the house used to be worth because you're allowing your kids to destroy his investment. You're a DISGRACE!

having one screaming baby in close proximity on a flight is one of the worst experiences ever. i've experienced it once over a very long international flight. Even with music and headphones it was downright miserable.

i can't imagine 12 kids. i'd probably jump off the plane mid-flight.

i don't blame kristen johnson one bit. Octomom should have had some help on such a long flight.

Octopus and her 12 screaming kids up in Business Class? I saw the airline logo as she left LAX baggage claim and all I can say there probably wasn't enough liquor aboard that Boeing 767-200 to dull the sounds coming from that unruly tribe. I wonder if that aircraft required major maintenance after they left.

I would have been pissed too. Bad enough when you are flying and there is one or two crying kids. I couldn't imagine having to hear twelve. Nobody should have to deal with that. And where is she getting the money to buy thirteen business class seats? I think the media should stop giving Octotrash and publicity and then maybe she would go away. She is not newsworthy nor is she a celebrity. Her only claim to "fame" is having six kids while on welfare and then going on to have eight more that she had no intention of supporting. She was hoping her kids would bring her fame and fortune by appearing on a reality show. When that didn't work out, she had to scramble to figure out how she was going to support them. She is a worthless piece of trash.

Her kids ALWAYS look unhappy. What s sh*tty life they are subjected to for Octonut's narcisstic need for attention and money. There is a special place for her next to Casey Anthony.

Thank you, Kristen. Its not about not liking kids. Its about not liking parents who can't control their kids. I get that flights are hard for small children. But if a parent can't keep the noise to a reasonable level, then they shouldn't fly. Flying is a privilege, not a right. Suleman is clueless, quite possibly mentally ill and a complete moron. I feel bad for her kids for having such a whack job mother.

Look, no one likes being on a plane with a bunch of screaming kids (or adults for that matter), that's why there's headphones.

Johnston acted like a complete idiot and bully. She took an opportunity to tell off this mom because she doesn't like her ending up with 14 kids and the media has been all over it. She's entitled to her opinion but not to get in someone's face who is just trying to manage and can't even defend themselves.

Sounds like Johnston would blow up on someone on crutches holding her up.

How about a little kindness and offer to help?

Blondy is a self entitled no class bi**h. Needs to be punched in the face.

Too bad so sad Fraudya. I bet she was hoping the airline would kick her and her village off the plane. Then she could add them to her long laundry list of people she is going to sue.

I've seen animals take better care of their young than this POS.

Yes, Nadya Suleiman was irresponsible in conceiving so many children given her cir****tances, but that ship has sailed. The children are here, and they're going to behave like children. Sometimes, that'll entail meltdowns and crying.

Ms. Johnston, however, is an adult who should know that the world does not revolve around her. She shares it with other people who, at times, are going to make her uncomfortable, whether by virtue o****e, disability, or something else. Instead of throwing a tantrum of her own and yelling at a woman in front of her young children (which is low), she should have either sucked it up or left without yelling.
