Personally, I think that bizzatch is crazy as hell. And dangerously delusional. And possibly an unfit parent. Like seriously mentally ill and desperately in search of fame and fortune starring on her own version of Jon and Kate Plus Eight and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. She has admitted to struggling with depression.
Is it just me or do you feel like if Nadya Suleman was African-American that this case would be covered very differently? Would she just be ignored by the media like the Chukwu octuplets? Or more likely, would her story be used as a way to beat black people down for our supposed low morals such as laziness, the crisis of single motherhood & deadbeat dads in addition to our deep desire to live off the state? If the mother was black (or Latino) wouldn’t the conversation turn in some way to an indictment of our culture and humanity?
I mean, we are talking about a disabled, unemployed, unmarried, graduate school dropout receiving public assistance (or “welfare”) who appears to be completely dependent on her parents and the taxpayers of California. Which includes me. Somehow, I’m getting the feeling I am one of the people who is going to have to pick up the tab for this. Just the hospital bills for the births alone are slated to be $1.5 – 3 million. I smell money — someone’s making some bank here and it is neither you nor me. It’s said she made $300K large from the NBC interview (clip above).
Anyway, I just had to put it out there. Maybe I’m being judgmental. I don’t know. I just think something has gone very wrong here. Babies are a blessing and certainly this is not the octuplets’ fault (nor that of the other 6 kids). But this just ain’t right.
