Suleman takes to video blog to defend her parenting abilities
Nadya Suleman has had share her share of bad press and bad luck this month.
First, she admits to the world that she had to resort to welfare and food stamps to keep her 14 children fed. Next, her hairstylist turns her into authorities for claims of severe child neglect and now, Suleman’s house appears to be going up for auction today, after it was foreclosed upon last year. If the house is sold at auction, Suleman and her children, including the 3-year-old octuplets, could be forced out onto the streets if someone doesn’t take the large family in. And all of this happened over the course of one month.
Suleman’s hairstylist reported to the police last week that her children were made to defecate in Suleman’s backyard because there were no working toilets in the home. Now Suleman speaks out about he incident on Octomom TV, an online video blog, and said that the whole thing was a misunderstanding and that the reports were false. Suleman said, “We were literally down in the dumps. We had one toilet that wasn’t working for one day. We called a plumber and had it fixed. Please don’t believe everything you read and see out there. The news is not always right.”
During the video blog, one of her children ran on to the video home set up and said, “She’s crazy.” Suleman nervously agreed but said there was a difference between ‘crazy’ and ‘mentally ill’.
Earlier the video was presented with an embed code on Octomom’s Facebook fan page but has since appeared to have been taken down.
