Single mother of octuplets Nadya Suleman faces an audience for the first time as she sits down with Dr. Phil to discuss the rampant rumors: the million-dollar offer to star in a pornographic video, her frantic 911 calls, the departure of her second spokesperson and the alleged sale of the octuplets’ birth video. Plus, hear about exciting new developments in the care of Nadya’s 14 children. Go inside Dr. Phil’s private meeting with the octuplets mom, attorney Gloria Allred and the founders of Angels in Waiting, a non-profit organization that has offered professional wrap-around care for all 14 of Nadya’s children. Will Nadya accept the help? And, Nadya has a new house, but this family’s needs are far from met. With the first of the octuplets ready to leave the hospital soon, will Nadya and her new home be ready in time? And, don’t miss the continuation of this two-part special on Wednesday, when Dr. Phil meets the octuplets and delivers a big surprise for Nadya. Tell us what you think!


Find out what happened on the show.

Disappointed in you Dr. Phil

I, too feel that the most important thing is the well-being of these 14 children.
I have a hard time believing that you have been taken in by this young woman. The help that this Angel organization is stepping in with is wonderful but it would have happened without you giving the "mother" all this TV time. She is in this for her moment in the spotlight. No, she didn't say she wouldn't sell the birth video. Her own mother has told you that she lies.
I really wish that social services would/could step in and let these children be adopted into two parent homes that could love and nurture them and have the time for each that they will need. The odds of these new eight having "special needs" is overwhelming.
I really think that you have lowered your standards.

octoplet mother

Im still wondering how she plans on paying for all 14 kids because i think its rediculous to think tax payers should or ought to pay  for her rediculous mistake.She is a mother and should be doing this alone with a little help.She should not be recieving 24 hour care.There are people out there that used to work and got layed of and theyare still trying to recieve unemployment. I'll pay soe her phsychiatric bill!! Thats what she needs..

ISNT THIS ENABLING

I am sick of hearing about Nadja and her situation. We all feel for the children. I think Dr. Phil is enabling Nadja by having her on and asking us for donations. It is very disturbing to hear her dad was on Oprah saying he only had one hundred dollars and to read Nadjas mother is forclosing on their home. Now several weeks later they are buying a half million dollar home and will get most care paid for. Meanwhile, people lost their homes and jobs and are now living in tents. But Yet the compassion for these people is not a priority or furthermore are not getting any kind of help. Do you see Dr. Phil or Oprah helping any of thse people? I just don't see why the attention would not be on someone who lost everything beyone their controL. Just go to show you where our priorities are. You would have to be crazy to donate money to this family. Go to a soup line and buy a homeless person a hot meal. IT would better in the long wrong. Get real people. She has you duped.

03/10 Octuplets: Breaking News

Quote From: pmazurek

I watch the Dr. Phil on a somewhat regular basis-- I am interested in most of the subjects that are addressed, however, I am bothered immensely at the fact that you (Dr. Phil) are promoting or even advertising the "Oct-Mom".  Being a triplet, I have some idea of the extent to which multiples can effect a family.  I am irritated that you are supporting this woman because not only does she have her hands full with many other children that she can't support, she is on welfare.  It's people like her who ultimately have to be supported by the taxpayers or by the people who have health insurance and are responsible for paying the medical bills (with higher costs of insurance).  I think you should be reprimanding this woman's entire situtation and behavior instead of condoning it and exploiting it.  I have no sympathy for Oct-Mom and believe that there should be regulations on who can be pumped full of fertility drugs. 

Dr. Phil-- I am dissappointed that you are even inviting this woman to be on your show.
I, too am disappointed that "Dr" Phil just won't  quit running shows on this gal. Has it become an addiction with him? His continuing focus on her has really eroded my respect for him. He's all "eat" up with her,  as they say down here in Dixieland. And, he's been so gullible, letting her play him like a fiddle. He's already aired six shows on her, including today's. Is airing a seventh tomorrow! And, continues "dunning"  viewers for donations. It's been too long since "Dr" Phil has ventured out of "Tinseltown" if he thinks most of his viewers have the means to support Ms Suleman's selfish, unthinking "decision" to be implanted with those six embryo when she already had six children she couldn't support. Most of "Dr" Phil's viewers, in these dire economic times, can barely afford to support their own two or three children, let alone Ms Suleman's 14!

My opinion

Ok,so my opinion of this women was suppose to change after this show. You said that Dr.Phil,and how was it suppose to change? All it did was cement what I already knew!! She wanted a new house,but of course the house someone gave to her really is only satisfactory and nothing special( beats the hell out of mine) and now she has around the clock care for her 14 children. Now Is this so she can go out side the home and work to provide for these children and to pay for the satisfactory house and the help she is receiving for all her kids,or is this so she can sit on the floor and kiss kids one at a time. So how was my opinion suppose to change...She is still a twit and now is repeating what a lawyer and you wrote for her to say,to make the people of USA not want to throttle her. But I think your plan backfired,I think the resentment level is only going to rise after this. I am really disappointed in all of this.

Nadya makes me sick

The audacity of this woman drives me nuts.  Why is America helping this woman, she gets money, publicity, and a HOUSE!?!?  For what? For irresponsibly and unethically implanting herself with too many embryo's and having more children than she could possibly afford or take care of??  How is it that she can be handed all of this stuff and there are 100's of good, hard working people living in tents in this country? It is so wrong on so many levels I am just furious!  This woman is a welfare case and a leech! I think she should GET A JOB, AND THAT HER CHILDREN SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM HER DEMENTED CARE!  MODEST HOME? MODEST SHE SAYS....IT'S OVER HALF A MILLION DOLLARS YOU SPOILED LITTLE BRAT!  Stop enabling this woman, she needs to stand on her own two feet by herself!  SHE HASN'T WORKED SINCE 1999! I am just infuriated!

american is crazy

Are we crazy? Asking to donate to this woman. She collects off of the system, gets money for three of the children with food stamps. Wic free medical care and now a 500.000 house to her just because of Dr. phils enabling. Wasnt public housing good ennough for her. I cant believe that people are living in tents with no hot water, hot meals or clean clothes and yet we give them no attention . Where is Dr. Phils priorities? And we are fools for watching his shows and believing this is the right thing to do just because God said so. Get real people . If you donate to this cause you are also enablers. Go to a shelter and buy a family a hot meal and some toiletries. Much better cause.

crazy people

Here's what I want to know. Now that you have been glorifying this stupid person, how much help are you going to give the next stupid person for doing this? First you said it made you mad she did this, now you  put her on t.v. What you are showing irresponsible people is, go ahead bring kids into this world you can't support, because someone will step up and get you what you need. Where is all this money coming from? Was  the house furnished for her? And I'm sure it was. Who furnished it? How did she get the house? I thought she had a back problem? How could she carry 8 babies with a bad back? These are questions I would like answers to. If you wanted to step up and help her, fine, but you should not put her on t.v.

Nydia

I believe she is still NUTS.    Other people have no homes, no jobs, have families and living homeless and this woman is getting all this at the charges of ZERO.  So wrong.  She is digusting.

I Totally agree!

Quote From: meandmy3girls

OK -- I get taking care of the children, but now she is given a new home, round the clock nursing care etc etc. all the time she is on Welfare??  I fail to see how this woman learns ANYTHING from this deplorable and selfish act that she has perpetrated on these innocent children and the rest of us that now are faced with paying the bills for her bad decisions.

 

PLUS -- when is this so called "doctor" , that performed the fertility implants on this obviously unprepared and slightly disturbed woman, going to be forced to PAY for his part in this debacle?  Perhaps instead of stripping him of his medical license the state should instead hold him culpable for the financial support and care of this scientific experiment that he performed.

 

The enabling of this woman must stop.

I've been saying this from the beginning!  They should make the doctor financially accountable for the care and feeding of these children!  Maybe then he'd think twice about doing it again.  It's outrageous!
