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.

All you LIFE-loving people, these kids don't deserve put-downs. Two out of 8 two yr olds having a problem isn't so bad, and the older kids, well, yeah, sorry for that wild childhood but they were orderly. Hopefully everyone will grow up healthy and not dysfunctional. Lets make the best of it. Hope she makes money off our "shrieks of horror" - as for Ms. Johnson, biaahtch, very bad mojo. She missed out on a unique situation and future "dine out on" story, lol.

Where were the car seats for those toodlers???? Don't they have laws in Ca requiring car seats for kids. Arrest her on neglect and child endangerment and put those kids up for adoption.

"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."

What planet are you living on? Octomom is completely devoid of even the most basic parenting skills, probably mentally ill, and her children are out of control little monsters because of it.

Suggesting that she actually parent her brood is ridiculous. The ship already sailed on that a couple of years ago.

The airline was completely negligent letting that whack job unfit mother and her umpteen kids fly, let alone in business class where everyone has paid a premium to get away from that nightmarish crap she pulled.

Wow. That is a nasty situation with all those screaming children. I would have given my seat to someone in the last row in coach though if I didn't want to take another flight.

What is she doing in business class when her house is in foreclosure?? This woman is disgusting. And since when is telling someone to "grow a baby" supposed to be an insult? That's ridiculous. Maybe Suleman should have STOPPED growing babies and she wouldn't be in this mess. She needs help. Mental help.

I'm sure the talk show paid for her flight people! And if they were delayed and sitting there for 2 hours of course the kids are going to be restless! While I don't agree with her decision to have that many kids she seems to be a good mother and hasn't been on public assistance...good for her! Kirsten was only concerned about herself apparently and it seems quite rude of her to make a scene like that. She should've just got off the plane and went about her business.

Why didn't Kristen just step on them?

How can she afford business class for at least 13 people (she and her 12 kids), while every once in a while her house faces foreclosure and Vivid video offers her a role to save her house?

14 seats in business class and she can't afford her mortgage?

It isn't Nadiya's fault and more help wouldn't have changed a thing, more than likely. Kids that age often have problems clearing their ears and the pressure is excruciating. I had it happen with my 18 mo old and we did everything we could think of to get his ears to pop. Our other child did fine. We were exhausted and we did feel for the other passengers.

Be mad at the news organization that put her on the plane instead of either flying her privately or coming out to her. I think she and the kids we flown out for an interview.

As for Kristen, she could have offered to help instead of making matters worse. No matter what you feel about Nadiya's having these children, they are here and she's trying her best to manage. As for Kristen, what a jerk!
