Brazilian Blowout to Octomom

Stop Abusing Taxpayer Dollars

On Our Products!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Brazilian Blowout -- the company behind the hair procedure Octomom dropped hundreds of dollars on while on welfare -- is MORTIFIED by Octo's reckless spending ... and now, it's hatched a plan to make things right with taxpayers.

BB CEO Mike Brady tells TMZ, "We want to make sure that California taxpayers' money is not going to anything other than taking care of [Nadya Suleman's] children. We don't want to see those kids miss out on anything at the cost of a Brazilian Blowout."

So, a rep for the company tells us, BB is offering to reimburse Octomom the entire cost of her recent Brazilian Blowouts -- plus other hair treatments -- totaling $520.

But that's not it -- BB also wants to give Octomom free blowouts in the future at the company's salon in West Hollywood ... so she's not squandering her limited cash supply on luxury goods. BB will even cover the cost of a sitter while the mother of 14 is getting primped.

To top it all off, BB is offering to pay to fix Octo's toilet -- which might finally allow her kids to poop inside. One can only dream.

"people , when hyper inflation occurs and a wheel barrel ful of money wont be enough to buy a news paper all the people defending her and the kids are going to be hypocrites "

And all those holier than thou and cutting her down every chance they get, are going to be walking in her shoes. Worthless money buys as much as no money. Karma is a bitch.

Oh well    

I hope this backfires big time on that company, if enough people call and complain they will stop this crap. And if people don't, well when their prices go up you will know why.

Why do people keep GIVING her things?

It is as if she does all of this hoping to manipulate others to care for her children while she gets freebies.

She will never learn boundaries or to put her kids first if others keep stepping in to do her damage control every time she makes bad choices.

This is so uncalled for. BB obviously felt the need to jump on the free advertisement train.

Let me quote:
"The mother of 14 is getting $2,000 a month from the State of California. The money is deposited directly into a special debit card account (see above). The card can ONLY be used for food -- and it's closely monitored by the State to make sure the cardholder isn't making illegal purchases -- i.e., buying a bike at Costco."
It seems to me that a Brazilian blowout could be considered an illegal purchase.
On the other hand it also implies that Octomom cannot use part of the money to have her toilet repaired or to buy clothes for her children. The card can only be used for food.

The fact that The Brazilian Blowout Co. is trying to help Nadya out doesn't bother me! What bothers me is the fact that even after Nadya has been given help from people all over the world she still refuses to do the right thing as a person and a mother! She may be a present mother but to be inconsiderate enough to let your kids suffer and not want to do better and give them a better life is a disgrace. Why get all the publicity and handouts & not be smart enough to use it to your advantage! Yet you go on welfare and do **** like this just to piss people off!!

Looks like Brazilian Blowout just wants to ride this media train coverage, but who would want to get a blowout if it looked as awful as what Nadya's hair looked. Dry and looks unhealthy.

Opportunists who just want to ride the controversial headlines to get their name out there.

Transparent.

What is wrong with this picture? She gets taxpayer money, doesn't take care of her kids, let's her home go to hell, now gets free blowouts as a reward? Why not have some one from the state make her accountable for how she is spending taxpayer money? This woman should not have been allowed to breed.

Holy sssssssttttt! Teflon Suleman scores again! Boycott Brazilian Blowout. If they really wanted to help, they should have paid for a plumber to fix all four of her broken toilets, instead of paying to fix her nasty hair. Who cares what happens to her stupid hair, when those poor children are having to poop outdoors in plastic potty chairs?

TMZ has no clue how welfare works -- taxpayer dollars are not going to her haircut, or to her gasoline, or to her clothing etc. -- and TMZ brought on Brazilian Blowout's sponsorship of this with its ridiculously over-the-top coverage of how a family is spending its money.
