Nadia Suleman has given birth to fourteen children in the last 7 years ALL by invitro fertilization. She is single. She is unemployed. She is a liar (she says that she has not had any plastic surgery). She is deranged.
Allan Mayer, a crisis management specialist and principal partner at 42West in Los Angeles says, “Ten years ago, this would have been a medical miracle — heartwarming, everyone would have been thrilled. If everyone was riding high and feeling flush . . . it would be more of a ‘live and let live’ attitude. Now everyone is counting pennies. There’s a lot less forgiveness these days than there would have been at the height of the boom. . . . The public is almost primed to go very quickly from joy to suspicion and fury.”
Allan Mayer is an idiot. Regardless of what the economy was like people are not going to think it’s heartwarming that this NUT keeps forcing births. She has no way to take care of them, or even the hospital bill that is growing by the day.
The LA Times article quotes another jackass, Michael Furtney, one of Suleman’s publicists:
I wonder how much Michael Furtney has been paid. Wait! That’s right. She’s unemployed and penniless. Surely he will be compensated a percentage of whatever circus fees are derived from the birth of these 14 unwitting subjects of outrage and ridicule.
Yeah, Nadya Suleman is a great mother! Read on:
“Nadya Suleman is receiving $490 a month in food stamps and THREE of her previous six children are DISABLED and RECEIVING FEDERAL ASSISTANCE.”
“Exploiting infants for financial gain and fame is not appealing to publishers,” Regan said. “And the publishing business is so in the toilet right now I doubt she’ll find anyone sane to support her endeavor.”
Molly Jong-Fast, an agent with Vigliano Associates in New York, said she would take Suleman’s book “in a minute.”
“What she did was amazing in her own way,” Jong-Fast said. “Is this a story that deserves to be told? Absolutely. I want her number.”
But he said it is very important that the babies appear “happy,” especially with the market only interested in photos that may lift people’s spirits.
“You want eight chubby, smiling, healthy faces,” he said. “That’s what you want.”
Frank Griffin, of the photo agency Bauer-Griffin, said he’s not sure what photos of the octuplets are worth in today’s tough economy.
