Octomom

CANCELS Stripper Gig

Due to Trash Talk

6/6/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0605-nadya-suleman-stripper-pole-2_CANCELEDOctomom will not be coming to the stage of a Florida strip joint -- TMZ has learned she's canceling her stripper gig because she thinks club staffers are talking smack about her.

As TMZ first reported, Octomom was set to drop her top (and only her top) at T's Lounge in Palm Beach, FL next month -- but Octo's rep Gina Rodriguez tells TMZ they pulled out of the deal this morning.

Rodriguez says the straw that broke Octo's back was a WPEC12 interview with a club bartender who said, Octo has "a lot of mouths to feed so it was only a matter of time" before she started stripping. The bartender added, "She must be a little crazy, normal people don't have that many children."

We're told Octo, aka Nadya Suleman, was also pissed about a manager at the club insinuating she might go fully nude and do lap dances ... for the right price.

Let's get this straight - the club is not on Palm Beach it's in West Palm Beach - there is a HUGE difference. And club they are talking about is a hole in the wall!!

Terri...

'let her regain some of her dignity'

'let her?' Regaining some of her dignity remains within Suleman's realm of power. Retention of Suleman's dignity is not predicated upon the benevolence of an extrinsic individual,or entity. Dignity, or lack thereof,is an emanation of inherent character. Free dignity pass ? Not today, or any day...until she warrants it.

Something tells me the numerous threats to boycott the business might have had more to do with it. Not all publicity is good.

1) She would go nude and lap dance for the right price. Too bad it would be more than anyone would pay in their inebriated minds.

2) She quit because people were not kissing her ass? Wow, great example for your kids. Give up if people don't worship you. GREAT role model. Most jobs you have, your co-workers aren't going to kiss your ass. Did she forget about that since giving birth to 14 children?

She thought they'd be in awe of her because she's some kind of freak show 'celebrity?'

She's too sick to be taking care of children.

Revlon just released a press statement thanking Octo-miss Ed for not doing the gig as they did not have enough cover up makeup in stock and would have put the employees on triple time to help with the back up on the assembly line.

To those ragging on the bartender and the manager, remember this: at least these two women WORK for a living. Add to that, these women have seen the lowest of the low...if they are saying Octo is a loon, then you can pretty much assume she has scraped the bottom of the barrel.

THE WORLD CAN'T THINK ANY LESS OF HER, WHY NOT MAKE AN HONEST LIVING STRIPPING. NOBODY THOUGHT LESS OF DEMI MOORE WHEN SHE STRIPPED IN A MOVIE, SHE WAS HOT.

wow    

Perhaps Octomom can find an audience up here in Canada if she wants to go through with a stripping gig. They would probably treat her right.

There is developing news about the stripping gig. See website for WPTV in West Palm Beach, FL. Their June 6 article says T's Lounge owner Gary Odle apologized for his staff's remarks and said "a conciliatory dinner is planned for tonight in Las Vegas between the club's promoter and Suleman's manager." So the gig might be back on. Also see website for CBS 12 News in West Palm. They did the original interview with the T's employees. They have posted the raw uncut video of their interview, which is much longer than the edited video they aired. The manager, Stacy, did NOT insinuate that Nadya would dance fully nude and do lap dances. I quote Stacy: "She'll be on stage. She will be going topless, and down to a thong. Maybe after a couple of shows she will get more comfortable and we'll get to see more." When the reporter asked whether Nadya would do lap dances, Stacy said: "We don't require them to do anything they don't want to do. Whatever she's comfortable with." At no time did Stacy say, or insinuate, that Nadya would do full nudity or lap dances for the right price.
