Single mother of octuplets Nadya Suleman faces an audience for the first time as she sits down with Dr. Phil to discuss the rampant rumors: the million-dollar offer to star in a pornographic video, her frantic 911 calls, the departure of her second spokesperson and the alleged sale of the octuplets’ birth video. Plus, hear about exciting new developments in the care of Nadya’s 14 children. Go inside Dr. Phil’s private meeting with the octuplets mom, attorney Gloria Allred and the founders of Angels in Waiting, a non-profit organization that has offered professional wrap-around care for all 14 of Nadya’s children. Will Nadya accept the help? And, Nadya has a new house, but this family’s needs are far from met. With the first of the octuplets ready to leave the hospital soon, will Nadya and her new home be ready in time? And, don’t miss the continuation of this two-part special on Wednesday, when Dr. Phil meets the octuplets and delivers a big surprise for Nadya. Tell us what you think!

Find out what happened on the show.

Octuplet Mom!

I'm tired of hearing of this woman everywhere you look on the tv she is there. They need to only let the woman that can't have children get the invetro shot. They shouldn't be allowed to let someone that already has kids get it. She can't even remember all of her kids names for crying out loud. This is outrages and those kids should be taken off her and put into a good home where they will be loved and taken care of. She can't do it all her self and getting help well there goes the tax payers money in helping her get the help she needs. I have a son and being a single parent it's not easy at all I know I couldn't do it if I had 14. This is just a sad situation because all Nadya is doing this all for the money and handouts it's just sad.

I am totally disgusted by this woman, i am tired of seeing her get all of this attention, she deserves nothing.  I am a single mom with two children and live pay check to pay check i rent a 2 bedroom home.  Nobody helps me , nobody is giving me a new house, lots of help, and whatever i need.  In my opinion she does not deserve to have these children.  She did this for her own selfish reasons and people are giving her just what she wants.

It concerns me that so many parents are jobless and homeless, and their children are also at risk, and this woman is basking in the media attention, has a new house that appears bigger and nicer than the average American parent, can afford to hire lawyers and publicists, and is basically being rewarded for poor judgment.  Yes, the children are here now and need to be taken care of, but how many self-sacrificing, deserving parents and children are now homeless and hopeless in this economic mess and have not sought the freebies and attention this woman has.  They are no less deserving but are under the radar because they chose not to have 14 children.  Sad that such media attention focuses on Nadya and not the responsible parents who, through no fault of their own, have lost jobs and homes in this economy.

Phillip, you have suggested

that after watching your program today, I and many others on this planet will change our mind about this woman.  The answer to this is "NO, I WILL NOT CHANGE MY MIND".  Furthermore, I will also officially stop being a Dr. Phil fan.  Never thought in a million years that Phillip McGraw would do me for a fool.

03/10 Octuplets: Breaking News

Quote From: pmazurek

I watch the Dr. Phil on a somewhat regular basis-- I am interested in most of the subjects that are addressed, however, I am bothered immensely at the fact that you (Dr. Phil) are promoting or even advertising the "Oct-Mom".  Being a triplet, I have some idea of the extent to which multiples can effect a family.  I am irritated that you are supporting this woman because not only does she have her hands full with many other children that she can't support, she is on welfare.  It's people like her who ultimately have to be supported by the taxpayers or by the people who have health insurance and are responsible for paying the medical bills (with higher costs of insurance).  I think you should be reprimanding this woman's entire situtation and behavior instead of condoning it and exploiting it.  I have no sympathy for Oct-Mom and believe that there should be regulations on who can be pumped full of fertility drugs. 

Dr. Phil-- I am dissappointed that you are even inviting this woman to be on your show.
I share your disappointment in Dr. Phil and declare myself herewith a former fan.

Now watch the imitators creep out of the woodwork, especially when they see the digs she is getting.  Thanks a bunch, Phillip.

I have 3 children of my own and my wife and myself are employed and make a good living , and find it trying enought to make ends meet with all the are involveed in. I find it very selfish on her behalf to bring these children into this world when she already had 6 she cant look after . Now through you and your show this welfare case will be set up, hmm , maybe what she was looking for from the start? Dont get me wrong, the Children need to be looked after but maybe adoption would make more scence. This will only encourage more welfare women to do the same thinking there is a free hand out at the end .

I'm so upset watching today's show.  My daughter has a 3 year old daughter.  She married a man that she thought was the man of her dreams.  Little did she know that he was not...long story short, he's no longer in the picture and she recieves no child support.  She has a full time job at a bank call center and dosn't make enough money to cover her expenses.

I advised her that she should go to social sevices and see if she could get some help with daycare cost.  She was denyed. 

I'm sure that there are many women in the same sittuation as my daughter.  Why the hell should this woman have access to a beautiful home, round the clock care for 14 children, and no job?!  I can't believe this is happening!  Where is Gloria Aldrich in my daughter situation?  I know, in Hollywood getting as much free press as she can.

I'm completely discusted.

Nadya Suleman

I am currently watching your show with Nadya Suleman.  I have to say I am a bit outraged.  I sat here and listened to this woman just say that her new house is modest nothing extravagant.  I am furious about that statement.  This woman has no job and took it upon herself to have eight more children at the tax payers expense.  She receives a house which was I'm sure for free and has the nerve to say something like that when there are so many people loosing their homes.  I am sorry but I don't believe this woman deserves anything.  My husband and I are hard working people and don't even have a house as nice as that one.  I guess if you just give birth to multiple children you can rely on free childcare, free homes, free college tuition and many other things while the rest of America suffers in this economy.  I am sick and tired of people being rewarded for bad decisions.  I don't believe a word that comes out of this woman's mouth.  I believe she likes being in the spotlight.  Maybe every woman out there should go have IVF and have multiple births at once.  It is usually almost a given to get everything paid for.  I also feel that Dr. Phil perpetuates the situation even more.  I am a very pissed off tax paying citizen.  She is not right in the head and to let her raise these eight newborns is an injustice.

I agree!

Quote From: threekids1mom

I Have 3 children of my own so i know how much love there is , but come one , when you allow yourself to bring 14 children in to the world and not even know where they will live or what they will eat!  She has taken away from all of those children because she is SO NOT capable  of taking care of 8 newborns and 6 other children BY HER SELF! This  world is not for free hand outs and i think she is being selfish to all her children for her needs of having all the love and wanting to raise so many kids!   None of those children will be able to have a normal  life because she has soooo many that its not possible for her to give them a great life, at least on her own , she will have to say that tons of strangers had to help her because of her careless mistakes! I wish the best for the CHILDREN !!!

I am a single mother of 4 and love each, I love them and would die for every one of them if need be.  I, like most responsible Mother's have sacrificed my share to provide them with all that they need and work full time in order to provide for them.  They are my responsiblity not that of my fellow tax payers.   I also have a brother and sister in law that have been trying for over 10 years to have a baby...they are wonderful people with plenty of love as well as the finances to provide a wonderful life to a very lucky child. 


Every time I hear about child abuse cases and now the Octo"mom" I am infuriated!!!!!  How dare she think that she could give a decent life to these innocent beings?    What chance do these kids have with her as a mother???? Was it not bad enough that she inflicted these repsonsibilities on her mother for 6 children  never mind the 14 she now has???  Be a better Mom starting now.......allow those children to be adopted by the many loving, financially secure couples out there like my brother and his wife.....stop leaning on the tax payers to clean up your mess!!!!

what about a diagnosis?

Why is it that during this whole escapade, this woman is given free handouts, free handouts, free handouts... What about diagnosing the real problem.... She is obviously Bi-Polar and Borderline...  This lunatic, I'm sorry, mother shouldn't have custody of these children and we, the tax payers, should not have to pay for this negligence.  This woman can't even take care of herself let alone have legal rights to 14 children.  It appears that she has a serious mental health issue going on here and we ought to have her reproductive organs destroyed...  This whole thing makes me so mad, as a father fighting for custody of his son, I have to fight and pay and pay some more.  My son's mother is Borderline and Bi-Polar, and when I watch this woman on T.V. I see my son's mother... It's very scary!  My son was kidnapped from my home in Florida and brought to New York.  I filed custody papers 2 YEARS AGO.... I'm still fighting and only get to have my son 4 days every other week.  The system ought to take a close look at these mentally sick woman and take action.
