Octomom And Brood Wreak Absolute Havoc On Live Television

Well. Normally I'd not bat an eye at Nadya Suleman appearing on the Today Show — this is, after all, the program that interviews the Duggars every time they've been infected with another pregnancy — but this morning's segment was so positively insane that it really is worth noting. She of the gargantuan womb was in-studio with her 2½-year-old octuplets, who really are gorgeous, and one of the other kids (the poor dears really will be known as "the other ones" for most of their lives). And I'll be damned if the woman wasn't on speed. Granted, you certainly need to be jacked up on something to handle fourteen kids.


The entire segment went on for nine batshit minutes, but the whole thing is just so special — David Gregory scoops up a wandering kid, Natalie Morales babysits another, and Ann Curry rushes to help a third child who has fallen on his face — that it's worth watching in its entirety. If you can stand it, anyhow. By the time they cut to commercial, I was frantically snorting my Tri-Cyclen.


I can't judge Octomom. She was on Howard Stern recently and admitted that she was nutty. She was an only child and her parents were not very loving or affectionate. Her mother raised her believing men were disgusting and only wanted sex, so she feared men and intimacy. Having children was pretty much her only way to feel loved, but she is also super paranoid that any man she meets would try to molest her kids. She definitely has mental issues, some that are exacerbated by her psychology studies (she has a tendency to diagnose herself a lot) and she's ADHD along with OCD. She knows she's crazy. She knows she's fucked up. She knows she has to deal with this. But watching her with her kids, she seems to be sweet and loving.

So, now that that's cleared up, what the fuck is she on The Today Show promoting again?
