"octomom" Nadya Suleman, the single mom of 14 (including IVF octuplets) has worn many hats--porn star, stripper, convicted welfare scammer, and Medicaid-funded plastic surgery queen. Or really, she's put on an old one--psychiatric nurse. Octomom spilled her guts in a Woman's Day interview, saying she's renouncing the porn star job and has gone back to her old profession in psychiatric nursing and plans to finish her Master's Degree. But given Octomom has been caught in more lies than all politicians combined, is the return to nursing another fable?

Octomom stripped and made porn films for the kids

Octomom confessed she's ashamed of her career in pornography, but then defended herself, saying it was done to put food on the table. It was suggested she only had so many kids to get a reality TV show like the Duggars. But given Suleman was found guilty of welfare fraud (which she lied about receiving when she elected to have invitro fertilization), you have to wonder why she didn't use her food stamps to feed the kids.

Where did all the money she bilked California taxpayers out of go? Oh right--that was spent on plastic surgery, Brazilian blowouts, new eyebrows, lip implants, a boob job, probably tummy tuck, prescription drug addiction rehab and stuff for herself. Those are other things she lied about getting and which were proved to have been bought while receiving welfare payments.

Suleman was "almost homeless"  

According to Nadya, the stripping job was essential also to provide a home for her 14 children.

But she had a huge, beautiful home basically given to her which she and the children trashed. She was investigated for child abuse and neglect. If they did face homelessness it was down to $1 million in debt which forced her to auction the home to raise funds. Actually it was a lot of public welfare people who worked hard to make sure she kept her home, children, and helped Nadya learn how to manage her money. 

Nadya was a nurse?

Suleman said she's returned to nursing which is curious.

Can you return to a job you never had? There are many reports that Nadya exaggerated or lied about her actual position. She was said to have glorified her former occupation. Also dubious is Suleman's statement about finishing her Master's degree. So she has a Bachelors? Then why receive so much welfare? Why not get a job? And if she had nursing credentials why do porn she supposedly hated? If Suleman is going back to college, she's technically working toward the grad degree at some point.

But Master's sounds so much more glamorous than finishing your Associates. That college bill will probably be footed by the good people of California too.
