Octomom is firing back at critics who think she's ripping off the welfare system. Octo called in today to explain why she's using food stamps now -- and as for how/when she's getting off the dole? You gotta hear her "I have dreams" speech. Apologies to MLK.

Also, MTV says it warned Situation about his booze issues -- but now that he's in rehab ... is this whole mess headed for a lawsuit? Plus, Chevy Chase's nasty voicemail sparks a civil war on the set of "Community." We've got scoopage straight from the crew.
