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 ...

What was she doing for a living when she had this last batch of children?

Same thing she`s doing now! Spending other people`s money! Using 10 years worth of bogus Workman`s Comp funds to manufacture more mouths she can`t feed.

Time to get rid of the debit cards and go back to GOVERNMENT CHEESE AND POWDERED MILK. Food stamps and welfare were meant to assist people during times of hardship. It's turned into a generational job.
They went from government cheese to food stamps to these ridiculous debit cards because those receiving FREE food felt it was demeaning to use foodstamps.
I'm sick to death of entitlement junkies and freeloaders!

This is the life she chose. She wanted to be a big reality star, a rich and famous celebrity, and then she discovered that no one was intrested, and alot were disgusted, and as tough as times are alot of taxpayers are really angry. I feel sorry for her children, they have a tough road ahead of them.

I'm assuming that every hater here has no family or friend that has ever needed financial help. Oh, maybe they didn't have to go on food stamps or welfare, but is that because they had support from family and friends? Thought so. If you know no one in this unfortunate situation, you must have a very, very small circle of acquaintance. If your sister were knocked up and short of cash, would you advise her to do porn to pay the bills? Didn't think so. Why is it so easy to send this woman to that fate. Now, back to your hating ways, fools.

It's a shame she didn't kill herself a long time ago. We really shouldnt have to see her ugly face every few days. She is a total waste of life and a now a burden on society.

The public already gave donated tons of money to her, celebrities already helped her and she blew through the money using it on plastic surgery and a lifestyle she can't afford. If she got more money she would do the same thing. She will inevitably be a welfare queen, just let it happen sooner than later. Oh and she supposedly is getting scary death threats but answers the door with a child. This is just another stupid stunt to try to scam money out of the public again. She needs to just go away.

There are legitimate families who need welfare. Octomom is not one of them.

So wonderful to see my tax dollars paying for this idiot's mental disorder and need for so many children is something we are going to have to pay for, for years to come.

She should accept the offer for $1 million porn, god knows we are all taking it up the ass for her stupidity, might as well enjoying seeing her take it.

Oh well    

I sure don't agree with what octo did with bringing those kids into the world, but that said we just can't let people starve in this country... And no i am far from being a liberal.

How will you ever get off welfare, Octomoron? You have 14 kids, no job, and no plans on getting a job. No one wants to see you naked again after the first set of pics, so I imagine your days of "erotic photos" are probably over. After seeing you naked, no one really wants to see you have sex either, so porn is becoming out of the question as well. How do you plan on making money? Are you going to school? Are you putting in applications? Are you doing ANYTHING besides bitching an moaning and trying to make everyone feel sorry for you? You made your bed, now you have to lay in it. It's too bad you feel the need to make your kids suffer right along with you.

If these kids are in the foster care system, it would cost the state WAY more than $2000 a month. Do the math. Foster parents get paid at least $60...0 a month per child (probably more in California). Plus the cost of Medicad. Plus the cost of the courts system (Attorneys, Ad Litems, etc). People shouldn't be so judgmental and ignorant.

TMZ: I CAN'T BELIEVE YOUR NEWS ORGANIZATION IS HARASSING THIS WOMAN AND HER FAMILY FOR BEING ON WELFARE. HAVING TO GO ON WELFARE IS A VERY PRIVATE AND SOMETIMES EMBARASSING SITUATION TO BE IN AND FOR YOU TO PUT HER BUSINESS OUT THERE WORLDWIDE TO YOUR READERS, MOST OF WHOM AREN'T CALIFORNIA TAXPAYERS, IS DISGUSTING AND SAD. HOW DARE YOU SEND A CAMERAMAN TO HER FRONT DOOR. WOULD YOU SEND A CAMERAMAN TO ANOTHER POOR FAMILY'S HOME? THE KIDS ARE ALREADY HERE, AND THEY NEED TO BE TAKEN CARE OF, PERIOD!! WELFARE IS GREAT PROGRAM THAT HELPS SO MANY EVERY YEAR, AND FOR YOU TO MAKE PEOPLE FEEL LIKE THEY SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR USING THE PROGRAM IS JUST WRONG AND YOU KNOW IT. THIS COVERAGE MAKES ME SICK TO MY STOMACH. BACK OFF HARVEY!!!
