Octomom Signs Up For Reality TV Show

Octomom Signs Up For Reality TV Show

By Robert Paul Reyes


"The mother of octuplets born in Los Angeles last January has signed a 250,000-dollar-agreement for her children to star in a reality television show, The Los Angeles Times reported.

The newspaper said a series of contracts filed with Los Angeles Superior Court specify the children will earn the money over three years.

European production company Eyeworks has inked the deal with Nadya Suleman, the mother of the children. Eyeworks lists `Breaking Bonaduce` and `The Biggest Loser` among its television credits." AFP

It was inevitable that the Octomom and her unholy brood would eventually have their own reality show. Every psych case, whether it`s a child star matured into a train wreck, or a D-list celeb caught in a sex or drug scandal, is entitled to star in a reality series.

Back in the day when a celebrity was arrested or caught in a scandal, his career was over and he was ostracized by the public. Today when an entertainer is arrested, his first call is to his manager (not his lawyer) to try to arrange a reality show deal.

No American network has picked up the Octomom`s reality TV show, if there`s a god in heaven her reality program will only air on Belgian TV.

"Each of Suleman`s children will earn $250 per day according to the contracts."

By paying the Octomom per child, that might encourage her to deliver another litter.

We have seen how Jon and Kate Gosselin`s marriage was destroyed by their reality show. If we watch the Octomom`s show we are complicit in the exploitation of her children.

For heaven`s sake people, if her show is picked up by an American network: Don`t watch it!
