Octomom

Files for Bankruptcy

Octomom files for bankruptcy
We all saw it coming -- Octomom has filed for bankruptcy ... TMZ has learned.

Nadya Suleman filed for Chapter 7 today in federal court -- a month after going on welfare -- meaning she's hopelessly buried in a mountain of debt.

Chapter 7 is the most serious form of bankruptcy -- it's basically when you go belly up -- something Octo is well-familiar with.

The legal docs we obtained do not specify her creditors or how much she owes -- but it's pretty clear ... she's dead broke.

The picture for the story about OctoNut has the word "BROKE" splashed across it. Is this referring to her financial situation, or OctoNut in general ? I'm thinking the latter .....

Who cares about the Duggars or the Gosselins, they exploited their kids first and came up with the idea. Octo just stole their idea and implanted 12 embryos hoping to cash in. She was late to the party and the public was already sick of the genre when Octo gave birth. She needs to get over it and plan on getting a job in the future.
In two years all the kids will be in school so she can start working, in 15 years they will be adults and she will be around 50. Retirement age will be about 70 so she HAVE to work for an additional 20 years. She needs to work for 30 years to collect SS when she's old.
Right now she is exactly where she was 3 years ago, living in a foreclosed home(her parents), with bankrupt parents (from supporting her 6 kids) and on welfare. She needs to grow up, stop with the schemes and get her life together.

Those children should NEVER have been allowed to go home with her. This is a totally predictable tragedy. They could all be in nice, adoptive homes by now living a normal life. But no - bleeding heart social workers sent them home with Octonut.

You think this is bad now? Just wait until those kids grow up. Do you think there's any hope that they'll be balanced, educated people able to live productive lives? No way. Taxpayers will be funding this debacle for decades to come.

Nobody wants to watch Nadya on TV. That's proved by her podcasts which nobody watches. The Duggars are a good hard working family, that people like, and they get good ratings (to this day...). They were well off before any of the shows came along. The Gosselins were a novelty at the time, and that is why people watched that show. Now it's been done to death, and nobody is interested anymore.

Give up your dreams of fame, Nadya. You will only be infamous...and not for the right reasons.

"there is a lot of differences idiot the duggars are married and have jobs and children of different ages who are willing and able to help"

So they are married big deal. 19 kids and 2 parents is nothing to write home about. Not that much different than one parent and 14. Sure they have jobs, TV jobs with great pay no doubt. Do you think they could afford all those kids on "normal wages." As for older kids willing and able to help are so sure its willing or is it have to. I kind of think that kids have to grow up to fast the way it is and a childhood should be something other than help raising your brothers and sisters, cleaning their butts, picking up after them, cause your mom and dad don't know when to quit and can't do it all by themselves. They'll be doing that enough when they families of their own. Your only a kid once. I will bet not one of the Duggar kids will have 20 kids when their day comes, not even 5. Because married parents or not, money or not, their life is no picnic.

How can she file Chapter 7 when she had no money to begin with?

Hey txcn...why not read about the Duggars, before saying anything about them. It's obvious you know nothing about them. Jim Bob was a successful businessman, and they own several pieces of property. They completely built their present house on their own (with their own hands no less), PRIOR to ever having a TV Show. They were never poor... and didn't need TLC or anyone else to make ends meet. Please read wikipedia about the family next time, before making comments about them.

Well she gave it her best go trying to feed all those children. With that many mouths to feed she really has no choice. She needs help, so the state will have to help now.
MUPPET...YOU ARE CRAZY TO SAY THIS! SHE DID NOT GIVE IT HER BEST! SHE DID THIS TO HERSELF! SHE DID NOT NEED ALL THOSE BABIES ALONG WITH THE KIDS SHE ALREADY HAD AND COULD NOT TAKE CARE OF. SO NOW IT IS OK IN YOUR MIND THAT THE TAXPAYERS FOOT HER BILL COZ SHE WAS SO STUPID TO HAVE SO MANY KIDS? THAT IS WRONG. SHE NEEDS TO GIVE THEM UP FOR ADOPTION. SHE WILL NEVER EVER GET OUT OF DEBT AND THE TAXPAYERS WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR HER KIDS TO BE RAISED NOW FOR A VERY LONG TIME AND THAT IS JUST NOT RIGHT. SHE DID NOT HAVE TO DO WHAT SHE DID, YET SHE DID. SO NOW, WHO SUFFERS? IS IT THE KIDS????? IS IT HER? HECK NO IT IS NOT HER. IT IS HER KIDS FOR ONE HAVING A VERY INCOMPETENT MOTHER TAKING CARE OF THEM. SHE DID THIS TO HER OWN KIDS AS WELL...SHE IS MAKING THEM ALL WELFARE BABIES!!! OH NICE. REAL NICE. NOT. NOT AT ALL. IT IS WRONG. SHE IS SICK IN THE HEAD TO THINK OTHERWISE AND SO ARE YOU IF YOU THINK IT IS OK THAT AS YOU SAY..SHE GAVE IT A GO..LIKE HELL SHE GAVE IT A GO! SHE IS NOT A PRETTY WOMAN, SHE IS DISGUSTING AS ALL CAN BE, AHD BROUGHT A LOAD OF KIDS INTO THE WORLD FOR WHAT REASON? OH YEAH..SHE WANTED A TON OF KIDS YET SHE HAD NO WAY TO SUPPORT ONE OF THEM!NOT ONE! SHE DID THIS TO HER KIDS AND TO HERSELF AND AGAIN I WILL SAY IT...WHY IN THE HELL SHOULD THE TAXPAYERS PAY FOR HER KIDS????? SHE WILL NEVER EVER EVER RISE ABOVE POVERTY NOW. IT IS UNFAIR TO HER KIDS AND SHE IS A VERY VERY VERY VERY SELFISH WOMAN. LET ME SAY IT AGAIN..SHE IS A VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY SELFISH WOMAN FOR DOING THIS TO THOSE POOR BABIES AND KIDS!

Why don't you leave this poor woman alone? She is at least trying her best to take care of all her children. Give it a rest and pick on some of the "drug Moms".

this woman and Kate gosslin(how ever her name is spelled) make me so freaking sick! there are people that really need help cause they are sick and this woman is getting welfare and I am sure medicaid for all her petri dish babies (poor kids to have that as a mom) they should make the doctor that did the procedure pay for her kids.

I almost fell off my chair when she said "I have 14 kids, I don't think people realize how hard it is" in her latest tv interview!!!! Seriously lady you choose to have 14 kids knowing you did not have the means to support them.... stop living off the charity of others.... grow up and take care of the mess you created!!!!

Best solution is to surrender her kids to welfare

Surprise, surprise; like she really thought in a rational world that she would be able to support all those children! Hope this isn't another bid for a bail-out. She really needs just to place them all out for adoption.
