Did anyone see that Octomom interview last night? I’m disgusted. Yes, I found it all fascinating from a media and cultural perspective when she had the babies. I would really rather not fan her flames any longer. She’s got issues and needs to deal with that and 14 kids. Not national television or reality shows.
I saw about 4 minutes of it while flipping through channels last night. I happened to be on the station when she was ranting at John & Kate Plus 8. Granted, that 10-some has their own issues and I’m not writing about that now. So here is what I see. She’s on the bed, there were 4 or 5 crying babies on the bed around her, one attached to her breast feeding, not sure where the rest of them were. Her other kids – one was sitting on the crib railing, a few were wrestling on the floor, not sure where the rest of them are. Can only imagine how hard it is to keep tabs on 14 kids.
Anyhoo….Octomom was ranting on Kate about having 8 kids and she shouldn’t complain and blah blah blah. Um…Octobitch…you should be careful where you are throwing stones. Kate was married when she had her kids. Kate has a husband/ex who is still the dad of 8 kids and still shows up to be part of that family. As messed up as her life is, Kate is providing for her children and focused on being a mom (when she isn’t a reality star or on a book tour). I tend to believe the stories I read about Kate. Yes, I get she can be a bitch. But what wife hasn’t lashed out at her husband in the face of life and children. Do we really all believe she acted that way 100% of the time? Personally, I don’t think so. Also tend to believe the stories about John. Got married earlier, has lots of kids, pressures of reality fame and scrutiny…and is out sowing his oats. Seems more apparent that both had a hand in their marital troubles huh?
OK – I did get sidetracked there – didn’t mean to write about those two. So back to my original intent:
Kate has a support structure around her to care for her children that were born out of a relationship and (hopefully) love. She has not gone through ump-teen invitro procedures, when there was not a clear path of support. And this doctor – what sane, professional, up-standing medical doctor would implant a woman with 8 more knowing she had 6 at home and no husband or boyfriend (or girlfriend) or support system. She lives with her parents. She relies on their support. Didn’t the house go into foreclosure when she was in the hospital?
This woman needs serious help. Badly. Or she is going to mess those kids up! Can’t you see the headlines 12-15-20 years from now? Octobaby arrested for X, Y and Z….
To the title of this post – people like Octomom won’t be allowed to mess up another child.
It sick how many people that should not have children have children.
Or ones that desperately want one struggle and go to the most extreme measures to conceive or adopt.
It’s not fair.
It’s an injustice I would like to change When I Rule The World.
