OctoMom

Up to $1 MILLION in Debts

(But I Really Needed DirecTV)

Nadya Suleman claims she's so damn broke ... she owes between $500k and $1,000,000 to various creditors ... including doctors, lawyers, teachers ... and DIRECTV!!!!

TMZ just obtained a copy of OctoMom's bankruptcy documents, in which she claims she only has between ZERO and $50,000 to her name ... because she's blown a fortune on super important things like water and power and the ability to watch all of her favorite cable shows.

God forbid a destitute woman with 14 kids be kept from watching "Game of Thrones."

Here's the list of Octo's creditors:

-- Orkin Pest Control
-- Roberto Robles Gardening Services
-- Sparkletts
-- William F. Turner Attorney at Law
-- Kaiser Permanente
-- The DMV
-- Farmers Insurance Group
-- Verizon Wireless
-- City of La Habra Water Dept.
-- So Cal Gas Company
-- So Cal Edison Company (power)
-- Sylvan Learning
-- Superior Court of California
-- Whittier Christian School
-- DirecTV

In the docs, Octo claims she completed a debt education course -- as required from everyone who files for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Octo took her course on the Internet ... though it's unclear how she paid for the Internet access.

I'm guessing the public donated at least a million three years ago(Suze Orman said it was enough to support the kids to adulthood), she was given many services and products for free, she was paid thousands for appearances(remember she was bragging that she made 30k/mo)yet she hasn't paid for rent or utilities for almost a year and is one million in the hole. What happened to all that money? I know her kids are expensive, but over 2 million in three years? It doesn't seem possible one person could blow through so much money.

I don't think she should be allowed to declare bankruptcy. Her creditors should've known she wouldn't be able to pay them back with no source of income.

People who loan money to homeless poor people should not expect to be paid back, duh.

I wish people would leave her alone. Whst she and the doctor did was beyond irresoponsible. However the kids are here, and something has to be done going foward. She will never win. If she takes welfare, people will accuse her of working the systen. If she doesnt use wellfare then people will accuse her of being a negigent mother. CPS and police found nothing wrong with the living situation. People are so quick to judge and say that CPS should take away her kids. Really??? People think it's a great idea to rip some child away from their mother and siblings????

k - so. peeps file bankruptcy because they have a problem managing their money. like serious problem - like other peeps tried to tell them that they're doing it wrong...and it didn't sink in. clearly chickie here doesn't know the first thing about reality...so, we can't really expect her to make solid decisions that will leave her financially stable. she did pop out 72 gumball babies, right? does that scream stable to anyone? anyone out there? no? mmmmk. so i guess what i'm sayin is that this article, while highly entertaining, is really much more of a redundancy than anything at all. but, god bless her. she's managed to stretch that circus freak 15 minutes oooooooout.

It might help if she moved out of Southern California. There are many states where the cost of living is much cheaper. But the Paparazzi wont follow her in Georgia or Wisconsin, so I guess that is out of the question!

I am not an Octo fan, I think she went through with the octuplets for the chance of a reality show. The reality is that she now has kids to raise and no way to earn money. I don't see a whole lot of anything that is excessive on this list. I think some of her kids are special needs, so maybe public school wasn't an option or they need more help, hence Sylvan. Where I live DirecTV is actually cheaper than cable and we get more channels. She may just have a basic plan, but none of us live in a vacuum with no television. But when you think about it, when someone has little, if any, common sense and no one to guide her or she isn't receptive to guidance, she's always going to be on the radar. It's sad when you don't have enough skills to earn a living. Rubbing one out for an adult video is just sad.

You're scraping the bottom of the barrel on this one.
Direct TV is a necessity for managing 14 children. Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and Sprout (Barney) must be relied upon, to distract some of her brood, while she cares for the others.

I feel sorry for her! There's an intelligent doctor out there who should have known better than to impregnate her in the first place-let alone with 12 embryos-when she already had 7 kids! He is the party who should be footing her bills!!! He should have told her NO. This is ALL his fault. The kids suffer because of his ego.

I don't see anything wrong with the list of Octo's creditors. You need utilities, I won't even discuss that....and with 14 kids, you NEED television, for education and pleasure. I don't see WHEN Octo would have TIME to watch much TV herself.

Sad that we have more than enough Resources to provide the ENTIRE World with food, shelter, water, education, ADVANCED technology 10 times over, but we don't have enough MONEY to provide them for people. This is why the system makes ZERO sense. Instead of valuing our Resources and making sure everyone has them, we allow Money to dictate us into haves and have nots. Everyone deserves food, water, education and access to Technology. That should be a HUMAN RIGHT.
We are WAGE SLAVES. Our nooses and chains are invisible. We have to work to provide us with the very Resources we PHYSICALLY NEED TO LIVE. We allow the Rich and Powerful to HOARD all of our NATURAL RESOURCES that are OURS to begin with as human beings of this Earth. Then we trash the poor. Wake up people.

Think it was Dr. Phil that covered her internet course and the net connection if I'm not mistaken. I can see why she would want cable with all those kids, tho she would just need a basic package...though I do find it odd that someone claiming all those expenses yet she manages to pay $520 for haircuts
