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


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 ...

Broads and their thinking or in this case not thinking. You kept your legs open like 7-11 then you want everyone who is not like to pay for the high number of weights? You're insane. Women having 14 kids played out a long time ago.

She let it slip a few months back that she's been getting WIC. No doubt she's been getting these "temporary resources" since the kids were born.

Everyone laughed at Dan Quayle for his Murphy Brown single motherhood comments. However, the number of single mom's has sky rocketed since it has become 'fashionable' to have children without being married. Most of those single mothers are on some form of welfare/foodstamps. I know a woman who has 4 kids all under the age 9, and she doesn't work. She has a boyfriend but lies on birth certificates so he won't be forced to pay child support. Octomom is the same way, no one would have been the wiser if she didn't have 8 at one time. By the way, the state paid millions for the birth of those 8. Plus, she chose to have more kids after already having an disabled son.

Tmz stop milking this. She already had 6 kids she could not afford or take care of yet, she did In-Vitro on purpose. She had 8 eggs implanted and they all took. Only problem is she didn't get a fake reality show out of it she was expecting to take care of it all.

What a bunch of losers to degrade her for trying to feed her kids. You have a lot more families costing you twice as much as others need housing, cash and food stamps. SHe is trying to find work, because she doesnt choose porn as a career doesnt make her a bad person.

As someone who lives in California and works two jobs and about 60 hours a week this makes me sick. These piece of **** women who have way too many kids than they can afford and the working people and taxpayers have to pay for their mistakes. Stupid skanks and ghetto whores do nothing for anyone but themselves.

All she has to do is hang in there until the kids are legally old enough to do their own porn.

She had her kids in private school, hasn't paid her mortgage in a year, has a new car, lip injections etc...but she HAD to go on welfare...

We all know you had to...there is NO other way to feed all those kids with your limited marketability. The problem is, you (in essence) are no different than that black woman in the news 2 months ago who has liie 10 kids by 5 or so different men stating "Someone has to pay for all these kids...I need help and the government has to do something."

She had kid after kid knowing full well there was no way to feed them, clothe them or shelter them...and at no point was she willing to take responsibility...OR close her legs.
