And then there's "Octomom," the public moniker for Nadya Suleman, a woman whose only claim to fame is that she gave birth to octuplets. She has a total of fourteen children, thanks to her obsession with assisted reproductive technology.
Oh, and let's not forget that she reshaped her face so that it resembles that of her celebrity idol, Angelina Jolie.
As you can imagine, there has been an investigation by the Medical Board of California of the fertility specialist involved. Here's hoping that they're checking into her plastic surgeon, too.
She was kicked out of her mother's home. I guess Mama figured out fast that all Octomom wanted was a free live-in babysitter.
She's not much of a role model–which, along with feeding and providing a safe enviornment for your children, is what we owe our children most.
Tell you what: I'll get off my high horse just as soon as Social Services gets off their butts, and the media finds another emotional train wreck.
Preferrably one in which the collateral damage isn't fourteen children who no one seems to care about.
