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.
