Octomom Nadya Suleman is back in the news again. Is that really so surprising? She's kind of like that pesky cold sore that just won't go away. Now, it would seem, Suleman is claiming that she was "set up" by her hairdresser, who, upon seeing the supposedly disgusting condition of the Octomom's house, took photos and turned her in to authorities.
Suleman recently spoke to Good Morning America in an attempt to clear her name and set the record straight. At this point, I think people have already made up their minds about the mother of 14, so I'm honestly not sure what, if anything, she hopes to accomplish by telling her story on national television.
"I think, maybe, me and my kids were set up," she explained in the interview. "We were set up."
Suleman went on to discuss the contents of these controversial photos, which include a picture of a door held shut by a chair placed beneath the knob. This, she explained, was done to prevent her kids from coming in and out of the room constantly while she was receiving her Brazilian blow-out. Speaking of which, the Octomom claims that this fee included haircuts for everyone in the family, herself included. Truthfully, this kind of makes sense, and the thought had actually crossed my mind when I first heard about this "story" earlier in the week.
However, last time I checked, barber colleges across the nation will cut hair for next to nothing. Something to consider if you're relying on government assistance. Just a thought.
"I am making money, though. I have jobs and I can afford it," Suleman said in her defense.
Regarding her half-naked children using the bathroom outside: The toilet inside was busted, forcing her brood to use the potty outside. The plumbing, she claims, was corrected as soon as possible.
In other words, everything has been taken out of context. The barricaded door, the half-naked potty party in the backyard, the expensive price of her haircut -- everything. Unfortunately, the damage to her reputation was said and done a while back, so I'm not entirely sure why she feels the need to address every single allegation.
What do you think? Is the Octomom trying to explain away her problems, or was this whole situation blown entirely out of proportion? Let us know in the comments section. While you're gathering your thoughts, why not take a look at what certain people on Twitter are saying on the subject.
Police investigated OctoMom and found her 14 kids neglected and malnourished. Basically the same conditions they experienced in her womb.
On the count of 3, everyone just ignore Octomom. 1 - 2 -
Would you believe the octomom spend $520 to get her hair done by a personal stylist. Spendind welfare money on a treatment for her hair..
I'm really afraid to click the link about the 'squalor of Octomom's hellhole' because I'm not entirely sure they are referring to her house.
