Octomom

Pleads NOT GUILTY

To Welfare Fraud

Nadya Suleman just pled NOT GUILTY to all 3 counts of felony welfare fraud.

TMZ broke the story ... Octomom was charged with cheating the welfare system out of more than $16K by failing to report income she made from personal appearances and her masturbation video.

Octo faces nearly 6 years of prison, but here's the way it usually works.  If she pays what she owes, prosecutors will probably reduce the charge to a misdemeanor and judges usually don't send first time offenders to jail -- they get probation and community service.

Octo was receiving food stamps and other assistance because she stupidly had 14 kids.

It's not possible to handle this-much-stress.

For this long-a-time.

No one can.

My own parents snapped after two.

Poverty plus children equals see_ya.

Very disrespectful to refer to her as "Octo" TMZ.

Though Harvey might throw her some work.

Make her Welfare-Mom-Correspondent or something.

Kind of like the new sports thing TMZ is doing.

Nadya's no longer hot on the talk show circuit.

You cool off then they don't wanna know you.

Doubt Dr. Phil even takes her calls at this point.

Lets her leave a rambling 26 minute voice-mail msg.

He deletes after like three hysterical minutes.

I know I'm losing sight of the main focus, but whoever is next to her looks like he's borderline about to break out into a full sprint. What's that about?

I ask the same "why" questions about Harvey.

What drove and drives Harvey Levin.

To become The Prince of All Media.

Then a work-out phenomenon.

Couldn't handle one of Harvey's days, either.

Neither could you, by the way.

Question never was:

"What in God's NAME has Nadya done!"

Question was always why.

There's Well.

...There's Reasonably-Well...

There's Aguably-Well...

There's Faking-It but Very-Sick.

Then there's downright hysterical.

I've been all of them.

Thus don't judge.

I couldn't handle one DAY in Nadya's life...

Inconceivable!    

LOL - not guilty?!! Claiming 0 income while collecting all sorts of residual checks is laughable. The DA would not have gone forward of they didn't have all the proof they needed.

From what I understood when she was receiving welfare benefits a few years back, she can earn a certain amount of money while still collecting welfare (and it was A LOT more than $30-$40,000). The serious issue here is that she didn't REPORT that $30-$40,000. Maybe now she will learn?!?....*smh
