Octomom Documentary Preview: 'What Was I Thinking?'


For those of you simultaneously fascinated and revolted by Jon & Kate Plus 8 and Discovery Health's Deaf and Blind Triplets, program your TiVos to record Fox's Octomom: The Incredible Unseen Footage on August 19. The network is capitalizing on multiple birth-mania by broadcasting two hours of the controversial Radar Online footage captured from seven months of round-the-clock filming, child labor laws be damned. In the preview clips released today, a defeated Nadya Suleman admits that maybe the whole eight babies thing isn't as glamorous as it seemed.

The trailer shows the Octomom struggling to quiet and feed a litter of squirming babies while her older children scream nearby. In another particularly vulnerable (or cash-motivated) clip, Suleman admits that "I screwed myself [...] I screwed up my kids lives [...] What was I thinking?" The remaining hour and forty minutes will likely be devoted to the financial and emotional stresses of raising fourteen children in a single-parent, paparazzi-targeted home.


  • Old No.7 says:

    I bet this was a real challenge for the audio techs on location, what with the walls of her vagina banging together in the wind and making all that noise.

  • Lowbrow says:

    If Octomom could somehow convince Goro to put a ring on it, he could really help alleviate a lot of this baby drama.

  • Nemo says:

    That question is mispunctuated. It ought to read "What--? Was I thinking?" To which the answer is, of course, a resounding "NO."

  • Boo Hearne Carroll says:

    What she should do now is find homes for as many of the eight as she can and give them up for adoption. She could find couples in California who would be close to where she and the other kids live, and they could remain part of their lives. For her to keep all her children under these circumstances is insane. At some point in the near future when the cameras are no longer there and she has no money coming in, she is going to snap. Her older kids are emotional messes already. Kicking her, slapping her, biting her. I've seen the previous videos. She thought when she got her plastic surgery to make her look like Angelina Jolie, that she would become Angelina Jolie. She is not on good emotional footing and probably never will be. So tragic for the kids.

  • LickyDisco says:

    What a lying, manipulative hag. Earlier videos of her right after they were born had her clearly saying she knew what she was doing, that her parents tried to talk her out of it, but that's all she wanted - a lot of kids. I guess she feels she'll look more sympathetic to the public if she now says "Oh I wasn't thinking..." blah, blah, blah, and that the same public will start opening their checkbooks to her. She should have lost custody a loooong time ago.
