Octomom

I Didn't Want to Go on Welfare ...

BUT I HAD TO

4/1/2012 3:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



0401_octomom_videoOctomom tried her best to avoid going on welfare, but she says "becoming totally destitute" forced her hand ... temporarily. 

As TMZ first reported, Nadya is getting $2,000 a month from the State of California, which can only be used on food. 

We spoke to her at her home today, where the mother of 14 said she's hoping she only needs the assistance for a month or two at the most.

Octo has been receiving death threats since the news of her welfare broke, but she feels people should be directing their anger towards those who are abusing the system and not at her. 

Plus if she doesn't get some help, we might see more pics like these. Lesser of two evils ...

I hope anyone making death threats is subject to the full weight of the law.

Tmz, you are getting a little too Jerry Springer for me. Leave her alone. Do I agree with her and all those kids? No but I give her credit for swallowing her pride and getting help. Why don't you investigate the millions that are getting benefits but don't need them?

I don't understand why people are so willing to give to people in other countries to help feed them but are so unwilling to help people in their own country. What a shame.

"You can tell who the welfare cases are on the site..." Adelle, what a gloriously ignorant stereotyper you may be. I suspect this is fundamentaly a matter of political view. Liberals with or without jobs tend to support the application of public assistance while conservatives with or without jobs tend to take the "not on my dime" attitude or oppose public assistance. Just another observation.

Poor poor Fraudya. She cannot pass up a media opportunity if her life depended on it. Just in the last few days alone, SHE has contacted TMZ, Dr. Drew, and Anderson Cooper. This week she will be spewing her LIES LIES LIES on the Today show. Really sounds like someone who hates the media and wishes to be left alone. (cough cough)

ummm?!    

I believe she was already getting food stamps on the 6 she already had. On a TV interview she referred to it as "resources made available to her".

The fact that she does not think "she" is abusing the system, just proves how stupid she is. She CONTINUED to spend thousands of dollars having MORE kids that she couldn't take care of financially. IDIOT
