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.

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.

Are We Crazy

I am so tired of hearing about this woman.  I know that people for a long time have talked about other americas and looked down on them because they have too many children.  But you Dr. Phil are willing to help her over and over again.  I do not  understand because she is playing on everyone.  I don't think that she should be allowed to bring the children home because she can't care for them.  And we as a hole are giving her a place to live, food, utilities, clothes, etc.  If we are not doing it directly it is indirectly.  This really angrys me.  And need to a place to live and can't get any help.  My children are going to be out and no food but I keep on trying.

what is wrong with this woman

I need to say, that this whole situation that this woman put herself and these innocent children through is ridiculos. 


The doctor that performed this procedure should be investigated.  Who knows what other things he has done.  How can someone in their right mind knowing Nadya's situation agree to implant these embryos. 


I respect Nadya's beliefs that these were her children, however if she where to have had 50 embryos was she going to have them all implanted?  


One of the things that really gets to me is that she lied in the beginning, saying that she was not receiving any type of goverment help, and after further investigation she was.  Why lie?  You know why because she knows what she was doing was wrong and she was hoping that people would take pity on her and send her money.  Well, I surely don't feel sorry for her, I feel sorry for those kids that have to grow up with a mentally unstable person like her. 


I have 2 kids, and I would love to have many many more.  The problem is that I know what my limits are.  I know that with my financial and living situation I would not be able to give more children the proper life that they would deserve, and I do not want any children to suffer because I needed to fill a void in my life.  If thats the case get a pet. 


Why should I, as a taxpayer have to pay because some nut wants to "feel loved", and I have to struggle to survive in this economy.  I have to go and work and juggle my time with 2 kids, and I do not depend on the government to pay for anything.  Why not leave that help fpr those that really need it. 


Nadya, STOP having kids.  Get off your butt and go out and work like the rest of America does to support their families. 


America instead of sending this woman money, someone please give her a realty check and find her some mental help.

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 !!!

Where is the accountability??

OK -- I get taking care of the children, but now she is given a new home, round the clock nursing care etc etc. all the time she is on Welfare??  I fail to see how this woman learns ANYTHING from this deplorable and selfish act that she has perpetrated on these innocent children and the rest of us that now are faced with paying the bills for her bad decisions.


PLUS -- when is this so called "doctor" , that performed the fertility implants on this obviously unprepared and slightly disturbed woman, going to be forced to PAY for his part in this debacle?  Perhaps instead of stripping him of his medical license the state should instead hold him culpable for the financial support and care of this scientific experiment that he performed.


The enabling of this woman must stop.

I am so disappointed with Dr Phil on this topic. Attention is exactly what this woman is after and you are feeding right into it. As you so often say, "you gave away your power" on this one.

I'm absolutely disgusted that Dr. Phil is promoting this woman and collecting donations on her behalf.   This woman is totally selfish and irresponsible.  If she had any concern for her original 6 children, several of whom have special needs, why didnt she take the money she got from her lawsuit and buy a home for them all to live instead of spending so much money on her obvious plastic surgery?


I don't believe this woman is stable, or capable of caring for 1 child, let alone 14, and to burden taxpayers with her 'need for love' is just so wrong on so many levels.


Dr. Phil:  if you want to help this woman, get her some psychiatriatric help.  If you want to help the children, find them homes where they will have a chance in life.  My suspicion is that this woman loves her children, but she is mentally a child herself and has no concept of reality.


Shame on you Dr. Phil for encouraging her bad behavior.

Are you kidding me??????

So what Dr. Phil is saying is that it is completely "normal" to not be married, have IVF several times which results in 14 kids, not be mentally stable AND live off of others???? Seriously? She has proven that she is incapable of taking care of all of the children. Why should she keep them? Where is child protective services in this? She can't possibly take care of all of these children - but we should be estatic that she will be provided with 12 "nannys" to take care of HER children? On whose dime? Personally, all 8 newborns should be put up for adoption - there are many families out there that would love to have children and that can't and who would take care of them properly in a sane household. The other six children should be constantly looked after by Child Protective Services to make sure they are being cared for - if not, they too should be put up for adoption. Why are we "rewarding" her? Giving her so much air-time? I am shocked Dr. Phil that you are condoning this insanity.

The House

Just how did she get this home she is moving in?

I just don't understand this at all. Someone is paying her big bucks. Has it even been considered how she is going to be able to make the payments on this home, that is if she has to make the payments. The utilities alone are going to be very high. Feeding the children, something just does not click with me. Are we the tax payers paying for all of this? On the show she said the home is nothing special,  I know I could not afford a home like that.

As I see it, she got exactly what she wanted HANDED to her.

I am glad that there will be help for the children, for they all are going to need it.


I agree that Dr. Phil is putting this all out there and this saddens me.

This woman still makes me sick.  Dr. Phil, I am surprized at you.  Do you think that now OK, everyone is going to trust and embrace this pyscho because you are guaranteeing that all the money that is sent in is going just for the babies.  I didn't believe it yesterday and I don't believe it now.  You don't know that is true.  Why did you suddenly change your opinion.  So many people say you are all about the ratings and I never believed it but now I do.  I would not do anything to promote this fool.  Let the people take care of her kids since she in not capable but send her money, I don't think so.  You should have been pushing for her to let them be adopted so they can really get loving care.  Now round the clock strangers are going to care for them and do you really think she is going to be home holding and cuddling them?!!? Of course not. She has 24 hour babysitters now.  She is free to do what she wants. How do these children ever bond with anyone when they get shift changes and their mother is an airhead.  She agreed with everything you said.  Oh no Dr. Phil, I never said those things.  Oh no Dr. Phil the 2nd promoter (or whatever he is called) also left me because he was not good for my kids). Yeah, I'll believe her over him in your dreams. No dr. Phil, my parents are not going to have to take care of these kids.  OF COURSE NOT, YOU JUST PROVIDED HER 24 HOUR CARE!!!  They sure had to take care of the first 6 though didn't they?  She knew the agenda.  Agree with anything Dr. Phil says so he can turn public opinion around on me.  Maybe you have Dr. Phil, but not 100% because you did not get me.  I am very disappointed.
