Octomom & Dad

Rehab

Table 4 2

11/4/2012 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1104_suleman_and_fatherYou know what they say -- the family that detoxes together ... Octomom's dad has joined his daughter in rehab ... TMZ has learned.

A rep for Nadya Suleman tells TMZ ... 71-year-old papa Octo (aka Ed Doud) -- checked into the Chapman House Rehabilitation Center Wednesday for a 28-day alcohol dependency program.

We're told Ed's alcohol addiction goes back decades -- and he was inspired by his daughter to finally clean up his act.

It seems the folks who run the joint want to keep father/daughter apart, because they haven't seen each other yet ... they're at opposite ends of the facility ... but we're told they'll definitely come together for some family therapy sessions.

TMZ broke the story ... Nadya's in a 30-day program for Xanax dependency, while her kids are at home on their best behavior ever ... in the good care of 3 nannies.

Maybe it's just me, but this seems like a last ditch attempt to either (a) get her own drama-filled reality show, or (b) to be asked to appear on a drama-filled reality show...

Wow, didn't we go through the Lindsay Lohan rehab stint then Michael showing up and the two of them mending fences story? Sounds like exactly the same only they put a different spin on this one. I can see we'll be getting the EXCLUSIVE tearful reunion, blah, blah, blah.

I applaud that he has the mental fortitude to address his addiction publicly despite having erectile dysfunction. And Nadya needs our support and love to help her through these rough waters until she can be rid of her addiction and fully commit to her children and future in wet & messy hardcore porn.

The look in her dad's eye's says: "My daughter is a crazy bitch."

I read that papa already checked out, after a day or two. This is all free rehab anyway, and probably has a payday associated with it, or she wouldn't be doing it.

Harvey. Enough about octoaddict!!!! The only reason why she is in rehab is so TMZ will write about her. Your her biggest "agent". Her whole family is a train wreck. You know that she is sitting in rehab just to get away from the kids...... She should never have had any kids to begin with. I feel bad for the kids. They never had a chance.

There's a problem here    

One cannot hope that there is a tragedy at that facility that spares everyone but that woman and her father.

A xanax addiction doesn't happen overnight. At least now we know how Nadya got by on just a few hours of sleep a night and how she lost weight.

hello    

Enough about Octostupid already! The only time I want to hear about this twit is when CPS finally takes the kids away from this nut. I could care less what she does, but it became a problem when she dragged 14 innocent kids into her bizarre world. No child deserves to be used as a potential moneymaker. Octostupid has already proved herself to be a liar. Ever time she opens her big fat mouth, all that comes out are lies. She has lied about being on public assistance. She lied when she collected workman's comp for her alleged back issues. She lied when she said she would never do porn. The list goes on and on. Now she expects people to feel sorry for her. She brought all her problems on herself and unfortunately, 14 innocent kids.

Give this poor girl a break!! She is doing the VERY best she can. Even resorting to things Im sure she never thought she would have to. BUT...... right from the begining when the story broke and everyone came down sooo hard on her she didnt want to burden the taxpayers and swore not to get cash assistance, when she truly needs it> Shame on this world, there has been people MUCH worse than her and all is forgiven. A BAD judgement call on her part yes, but these are children, it doesnt matter how they got here, they are here now. Good luck to you, I wish I were a rich woman so I could help you. Good Luck to you, I wish I could give you a BIG hug, your a good mom and dont let anyone tell you different.

Makes me wonder if her dad is paranoid that she may spill the beans about her upbringing, so is going as a way to exercise control over her. Maybe he molested her as a child? Something had to happen to her to make her such a messed up woman.
