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.

Furthermore, how the hell can she afford to fly? Doesn't she have 14 kids? The octuplets are 2.5 now-- too old to fly free. People need to stop watching interviews/reading magazine rags about Suleman. That puts money in Suleman's pocket and subjects Kristen Johnson to two hours of he** on an airplane with that nut and her kids.

I'm surprised they flew her and the kids business class.

I can imagine it was tough on all. Even adults don't do well with a two hour delay. Probably the time to break out the benadryl, Leapsters, etc.

How the hell can she afford to fly all those kids around when she's whining about having trouble making house payments?

OMG, just listening to all those damn kids screaming. I would've Casey Anthony'd all of them.

I would have gotten off the plane as soon as I saw that many kids! Either that or I would have shot myself in the head somewhere over Kansas!

If she wants to be on TV she should leave her damn kids at home with her parents, subjecting innocent people to her screaming brats is totally unfair, and yes Nadia, some of us don't like children and don't want to be subjected to them.

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.


Oh STFU you idiot. Flying is a privilege not a right. It's Octomom who is the self entitled no class bitch, not to mention a rotten excuse for a mother.

And you want people who paid a premium to fly business class to pick up the slack and offer to help this clueless **** control her brood? Good grief...

Um, isn't it illegal for those kids to not be in car seats?

On the bright side; she hasn't killed her kid(s) too party.
The airlines need to issue a warning when this lady travels with all those kids; I would change flights! On the dark side Octo Mom is crazy like Aunt Mazy!

Sammie is right. Many parents do not properly discipline their children, especially in confined spaces (planes, restaurants, etc.). When you let your child stand up in a chair/booth of a restaurant, their stool-encrusted shoes are contaminating the seats for everyone else (shoe bottoms DO NOT belong in a chair!). Also, letting your kids run around a plane, restaurant, store, etc., is just plain rude. I know there are some good parents out there, but there are TONS of awful ones.

This story is probably exaggerated. We often travel over the holidays and they're quite a few young children on the flight. Most are well behaved but others want to stand, cry or yell. The same goes for the parents. Big deal.
Octomon and her helpers should sing, talk or read softly to the children. Try coloring or story books with bright pictures or a soft toy to grasp their interest. Even a lollipop if they're old enough. A delayed flight frustrates everyone. One of our flights during Christmas holiday was delayed eight hours.

Children under 2 fly free if they are in your lap. Yes - all 8 will be sitting in my lap.
