And to think I go CRAZY with just 3 !

I like to watch Jon & Kate PLUS 8 all the time. It's one of my favorite shows, actually. I often sit back and giggle thinking "Better them than ME!" and I love the opening where Kate says "I could very well lose my mind.". OH HONEY, I FEEL YOUR PAIN!

I have also watched 17 Kids and Counting (The Duggar Family). That family.....Well, that family amazes me. They have it together and are very CALM and LOVING like ALL. THE. TIME. While they do not have Sextuplets or even twins, they do have A LOT OF KIDS and again I think to myself...... "Better them than ME!" (However, they think differently and may even have more kids) MORE POWER TO THEM!

Well, now we are hearing about the lady in California that had Octuplets.
I just don't know what to think about this. The lady already had 6 other kids and claims she is not in it for the money. Ok, if she is NOT in it for the money then why did she hire a publicist and why are we hearing about all these endorsements she is trying to get?
Seriously? Please tell me someone is not out there going through fertility treatments and actually trying for more than one baby for the FAME and FORTUNE.
Of course no one knows but the lady who had the babies.......Maybe she was not supposed to be implanted with that many eggs.....Maybe she did want a HUGE family?
But come on! It does kind of seem odd, right?

What are your thoughts?

I think she is crazy!!!! I CANNOT imagine. There is no way I could handle it... my 2 make me pull out my hair sometimes...
It does make me sad to think that she did it for the $$ I hope not!

I'm with ya! She should just speak the stinkin' truth!
I'll admit right now...If i had octuplets, God help me, I would be ALL over the hand-outs and publicists. Yes, ma'am! You'd see my pajama wearing butt on TLC, and ABC, and NBC. lol

LOL, Amy you would "Jon & Kate" it to the bank, huh? ROFL!!

They would have to do my show from the mental hospital. I WOULD DEFINATELY have to BE ADMITTED!

There's no way I could have 18. That's outrageous.

Funny you should ask! I just blogged this at The Bowl yesterday too. There is sooooo much more to this than we are getting already! I'm beginning to think maybe the publicist was hired to help her look like less of a whack job when all the news comes out.

I do not understand it. She lives with her parents, already has 6 kids so why fertility meds? The age ranges of her children indicate she was almost in a constant state of pregnancy, maybe her body was saying hey, let me rest.

I do hope it was not for money.

I have three kids and I could not handle more.
