octomom Nadya Suleman, a single mom of 14 including IVF octuplets, turned to stripping and making porn videos to feed her kids, or so she says. She recently told the story behind her sex work and how she came to quit. And although it's melodramatic, like all things Octomom, it will break your heart. You might even find yourself cheering for this trainwreck that 14 little persons call "mom." 

Why Octomom did porn.

Octomom has gotten a ton of flak for a ton of good reasons. But 14 of those reasons aren't her kids, including octuplets she had via invitro fertilization while living with her parents on welfare with six more kids at home.

Those 14 children are the reason everyone gives Suleman flak. She's made some pretty poor decisions that have repeatedly endangered their welfare. She's been food stamps fraudster, pathological liar, child neglecter, disability scammer, porn star, drug addict and debtor. Her crazy lifestyle of $1 million in debt, plastic surgery and mind-boggling spending while collecting welfare have bankrupted the family and lost the kids their home. Nadya Suleman stooped to porn to feed and house these 14 little mouths (she says) while all the while she was bilking Medicaid, food stamps, welfare and pretty much everyone who got close to her. She has lied about almost every decision she has made. 

Why Natalie Suleman no longer does porn.

Octomom admitted she was ashamed of her career in porn. She wasn't in the wrong and was actually doing it all for her kiddies.

Top Videos of the Day

She exploited herself so she wouldn't have to exploit them. But beneath all the rationalizations, lies, denials and self-defense is a woman questioning herself. Nadya actually tried to get out of the dirty movies but she was bound by contract so she powered through. But one day a simple act changed all that. She found her daughter Amerah strutting around in her spiked heels, just like mama. She doesn't say she foresaw a career like hers in her daughter's future, but she kind of implies it. Nadya threw the shoe, it stuck in the wall and broke her free from pornography. And from the rubble of Octomom sprang Natalie Suleman, reformed porn star turned nurse (you were warned of schmaltz). So maybe she won't get best mom award, but at least Ms. Natalie is making an effort to be the best mother she can be.
