Octomom

Begging Fans

for $150,000!

Octomom
may have stripped her way off welfare, but she couldn't strip her way out of foreclosure ... and now the mother of 14 is begging her fans for $150,000 so she can put a down payment on a new pad.

In case you forgot ... despite Octo's recent XXX endeavors, she still couldn't make the mortgage payments on her La Habra house and it was foreclosed on last month.

Sources close to Octo tell TMZ she's been given two weeks to move out, but the problem is she doesn't have enough cash to buy a house of her own ... especially one that can fit her giant brood.

Octo's solution ... set up a page on a website called GoFundMe.com, where her fans can send her money through the internet! All she's asking for is a cool $150k to get started. 

In the meantime, we're told Octo is trying to book as many jobs as possible, just in case her fans don't come through.

The bright side: at least she's not taking our tax dollars.

Why would anyone want to get an octoloan? GoFundMe.com is a far better idea.

She's a crappy spokesperson.

Paul I think TMZ has hurt itself getting involved with nobodies like Octo. I have to go to a British site to get info on American celebs now! TMZ came through with the Jackson saga but every weekend they feature a fake story on this loon so I avoid it. Bummed to see this still up on a Monday. Honestly I don't see how they are making money with her.

I cannot judge her. I have never taken a dime in my life from anyone, not even family. If she had plenty of money as you all have said and squandered it, then she seems to have burned a bridge with the people here that are so angry with her. I have never taken my clothes off and never could for money.

When I lost my job 2 1/2 months ago it coincided with the exit of my children's father and he has not been around since. Without notice I was laid off from the sole support of my family and now we face eviction. I have had several interviews in the past few weeks and so there is hope of recovery in the future, however, we need 1st month and security for a new apartment on Sept. 1st.
I understand there are those that find this frivolous, I assure you it is not my intention to offend anyone by asking for help. I have swallowed my pride and set aside ego to save my family from homelessness while I feverishly seek employment. Please, if you are able, give whatever you can. I was once the one to give, and I still volunteer...it is not a bad thing to ask for help when you truly are in need. Also check my wish list widgets on the page which offer work exchange.

To Octo-mom, you decided to have the litter...not us. You want the kids, get your ass out like the rest of us and support them. Look at 18 kids and counting, you don't see them begging for money to raise their brood. You just want your cake and eat it too at the expense of others, sorry...you are on your own on this one.

I feel for those poor unfortunate children, they are only guilty of having her as a mother. I can't believe she still has custody of them!
I work for my dime, work for yours!

Man I bet she's running to the site to get that money out ASAP!! She will be at Disneyland or shopping in the morning! Even if she buys a mansion, how she gonna keep the utilities paid etc?? Even pay the taxes?? It will be a pig sty in two years!! Good luck Nasty and all you suckers who are sending your hard earned $$ in. Wonder how many are fakers and their donations bounce?? Would be pretty funny if most were fake and no money in the bank. Even the major fundraisers on tv have problems collecting!!
