Octomom: 'I Am Absolutely DISGUSTED By Babies'

7/19/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's the interview Octomom says she never gave -- in which the mother of 14 claims, "I am absolutely DISGUSTED by babies" -- except this time ... it's all caught ON TAPE.


Excerpts of the interview were originally published last month by InTouch Magazine -- via a freelance reporter -- but Nadya Suleman has flat out DENIED ever making the statements, telling TMZ, every single quote that was attributed to her from the interview is false.

But it's clear as day in the audio recording -- Octomom states, "Whenever I hear a baby cry, I cringe. I do not like babies." Nadya continues, "I am absolutely disgusted by babies. They make me sick ... I don't even look at them. I have to look away."

Octo also admits to locking herself in her bathroom just to get away from it all -- a statement she partially denied to us, claiming, "I hardly have 30 seconds to go to the restroom, I could never lock my self in the bathroom for hours."

Octo's rep tells TMZ, "Nadya never gave an interview to InTouch magazine. She never once said she was disgusted by her own children."

The only thing I find disgusting here is this woman.

She's a horrible excuse for a mother.

Where is child protective services? I mean, for the love of anything, she's doing PORN because she can't take care of her kids! With everything they keep finding out about her, why hasn't ANYONE from CPS intervened on behalf of those poor kids who HAVE NO CHOICE but to be subjected to that trash?

It was NADYA herself that lied, not her publicist.

In the Ann Curry interview Nadya stated, and I will quote her words: "I've never said any of that, none of it actually. I think they should retract it because it was all slander, all of it."

That is an out and out lie. No, she didn't give the interview to In Touch, per se. A free lance interviewer sold the interview to In Touch, which is perfectly legal. But for Nadya to come out and say she never said that, is a BOLD FACED LIE... and here is the tape to prove it.

If I had 14 babies I would be disgusted as well. I don't blame her for saying this. Who cares it was what she was feeling at the time. Stop making this woman a celebrity.

Well, OCTOMOM disgusts ME. How's that?

Give those kids up for adoption. They aren't safe with you. Give them a good life while they are still adoptable.

Everyone is well aware that Octomom is nothing but a sick disturbed fraud-committing liar and people are tired of her getting away with it.

As a children's mental health worker I find this very concerning. If her babies are already two and she is just working on bonding with them there is a really good chance that they are not bonded to her either. Children who don't bond in those early years can never bond and grow up to be sociopaths in their level of functioning int the world. Not all are dangerous but they are detached and self driven and unable to view how others are impacted by their behavior. I highly suspect Nadia herself is a sociopath. She is very self driven and has not understanding of how her choices have impacted her children and those around her. It is all about Nadia. She is not a mean and malicious mother but she lacks the capacity to bond to her own children and she in need of a lot of support to ensure her children do not become serious behavioral problems as they get older. Children who are not bonded have no incentive to limit their actions and tend to be the kids who get in to trouble all the time. Children's services should be supervising this family on a daily basis and providing daycare for the babies and support workers to help the older ones. This is a service to society....13 children at risk will grow up to be 13 adults who do not function well and will potentially become a huge drain on society....either in the prison system or the psychiatric/or addiction treatment system.

If I was doing my thesis I would do it on this family...this is a fascinating situation that is going unobserved...potential to learn a lot from the dynamics in this family.

I think she was saying she is disgusted by other babies in general, but she forces herself to take care of her own children as some sort of penance.

However, she is caught in her lies. Told ya she would be suing 'In Touch Magazine' if they falsely reported about her.

The bottom line is that she knew she made those comments to someone. Whether or not they were a freelance reporter is a technicality. Obviously her manager can't control her client.

I hope her managers "spin doctoring" skills are up to speed. She has already tweeted that the reporter twisted the story.

I am sure TMZ's attorneys would have had the tape verified before posting it.

Her older children are old enough to understand what is going on around them. I really feel sorry for them, having to live with her. As for her, she is another in the long and growing list or reasons why this country has finally come to the point of needing to license people to become parents.

Bwaaahaaahaaa... I can't wait to see how TeamNadya spins this one!

Let’s just recap shall we? First let’s make this abundantly clear, I personally never said In touch lied, I never said Nadya lied. I said; I willing to give Nadya Suleman the benefit of the doubt due to so many rumors, exaggerations, fabrications lies made up about this woman over the years. I said; in touch bare the burden of the proof since they are the ones that brought this story to life. Well they presented a audio tape but it’s got so many holes in it, you can throw a bag of rocks through it and never hear it land.

Octomom FURIOUS Over 'Fabricated' Interview
7/4/2011 12:50 AM PDT by TMZ Staff
Quotes from Octomom flew all over the Internet this week -- the most damaging being, "I hate babies, they disgust me" -- the only problem is ... Octomom says SHE NEVER GAVE THEM!!!

TMZ neglected to say she was referring to other people babies, not her own. According to the auto, the interviewer asked her what about her own? She clearly say NO these are her children and she's bonding with them since the nannies are gone.

Nadya Suleman tells TMZ every single quote that was attributed to her from an interview with In Touch magazine is false ... because she never even gave them an interview.

It's true, Nadya never gave "In touch" an interview; she gave it to a freelance who probably sold it to in touch. Or it's possible the freelancer misled Nadya and never told her they worked for in touch.

In another passage from the "interview," Nadya supposedly said she thinks her older children are animals and that she often locks herself in the bathroom and cries.

Hum... They must've cut that part out, because I sure didn't hear Nadya say that on this audiotape, never heard her say the crying part either.

To that she says, "I hardly have 30 seconds to go to the restroom, I could never lock my self in the bathroom for hours. I Love ALL my children, I do not regret them and it's ridiculous that I have to continue to defend mysel****ainst these disgusting fabricated lies."

LOL Nadya said she could never lock herself in the bathroom for HOURS. I do agree, it's ridiculous she has to keep defending hersel****ainst people who make up, exaggerate and flat out lie on her about something she may or may not have said.

Nadya Suleman tells TMZ every single quote that was attributed to her from an interview with In Touch magazine is false ... because she never even gave them an interview.

Well according to TMZ she gave the interview to a freelance reporter who could have been working for anybody including herself and sold the story to in touch. Does not mean she actually gave the interview to "In touch" itself. It's possible they lied there.

Ilovegossip, I'm not going to spin anything. But I will say this... In this audiotape above, I never once heard Nadya say she hate her kids (her babies) I never once heard her say her older kids are animals. I never heard Nadya say she goes into the bathroom and cry.

But most of all, judging by TMZ article above Nadya never did an interview with "INTOUCH MAGAZINE" she did it with a freelancer who more then likely sold the story to In touch who twisted her words and added their own. That's what I heard!

It's fair to say they lied okay? More so in touch and I think they do owe her an apology. BTW it also sounds like the tape was edited, cut off, chop-- because you hear some of the conversation skip to another topic (bathroom part for instant) Where's the beginning of this audio tape and the end for that matter? btw Nadya has always stated when asked that she would never have any more kids, perhaps far, far, far in the future when the 14 are older and if she meet someone that she'll probably have A baby but for now, never.
