Next Reality TV--14 and Counting?

Watching the mother of the octuplets on TV argue with her mother about her decision to have more children when she already had "six beautiful children" makes me wonder what her big plan is. Why would you choose to air your dirty laundry (so to speak) in front of millions on national TV? Nadya seems to be quite articulate and intelligent. The pregnancy was no accident, so you have to wonder---well, aren't we all wondering---what she was thinking? She has no home of her own, I haven't heard of any gainful employment, and she has no mate. She just might be more clever than we have given her credit for. She is already receiving assistance from the state for two of her children. Maybe the thought of rearing those six on state assistance, living with her mother and barely scraping by began to seem like hole she could never crawl out of. Add to that, the upcoming foreclosure of the home she is in. Maybe, just maybe, she could turn it all around...... Look at reality TV. Jon and Kate Plus Eight, 18 and Counting.... All she had to do was have those embryos implanted and go for broke; even if only half of them survived she would still have some notoriety with ten children. But she hit the jackpot and all eight seem to be thriving. All the interviews she has given, she claims to not have been compensated for. But she has gotten herself out there, everyone is talking about her..... Publicity, advertising, proving that she is willing to let the world see her life. I have to wonder if she is waiting for a TV producer to contact her...... Maybe she's not as thoughtless as we all think and this is all part of her plan to rise above what everyone can agree is a hopeless situation. Maybe......

I think you are spot-on with the reality tv. Add the resemblance she is trying hard to create to Anglina Jolie and a pattern emerges. Textbooks are full of mothers using their children to further hidden agendas. I feel sorry for the grandparents, and the doctor should be seriously looked at. He knew full well those children would need intensive and lifelong care. Who pays for that? Guess who.

The doctor is a whole different story....makes you wonder what motivated him to do something that would only discredit him. I'll have to think about that, ponder it awhile.
