when I heard this I wondered if maybe it was a snarky response to the porn offers.
As a point of curiosity I have wondered if anyone ever watches again the birth of any of their children, if their birth was indeed ever recorded in the first place, by an overzealous husband with too much anxiety to deal with in the moment and hiding behind a camera?

I can't imagine the relevance of ever seeing it again, for the husband or the wife or even the child involved.

Now this nut job thinks that people would pay to see her open her bomb-bay doors and carpet bomb Southern California with her brood? Just saying ... I think there's some real narcissism at work there.

several of my female online friends have been having children lately and its virtually the only thing they discuss in their blogs. so much so that I stopped reading them because I was so sick of hearing about pregnancy. in real life my friends who get pregnant don't come out as much of course but even the little that I saw them was much the same as those blogs. I think its just common for couples to become obsessed with their pregnancies to the point of even wanting it video taped.
trying to sell those tapes though is definitely pretty rediculous.

Eeww. For the record, I am NOT going to have my baby's birth taped. First, who ever watches their wedding videos again? (BTW, we didn't have one done... we did a nice old fashioned elope-at-the-courthouse wedding.) Second, I just can't picture my husband being able to do that. He'd be a stand-at-the-head-of-the-bed guy, holding my hand IF I'm lucky. BUT third... he's going to be lucky if I allow him in the room in the first place. If anything looks a bit off (even me being in a bit of pain), he's prone to going ballistic at the doctors and getting himself hauled out and threatened with jail-time.

As a chemical physicist, I feel configurations of 2 kids, 8 kids or 18 kids are optimal.

That post makes me feel like an empty shell.

The S orbitals are enough for most.

I think they are all deeply personal events and call for focus in the moment. Recording them with the distance or detachment of a cinematographer is not what is called for. Nor is it how they will ever be remembered.

Why distort the experience with the demands of clinical detachment?

OK. When your 15 minutes is up, isn't it time to leave the stage?

Now this?
Octo Mom Signs Reality TV Deal

The only reality show of this family I want to see is a Survivor show in a reptile infested swamp. (I think the reptiles would lose.)

She's been trying for this since the begining. I think that public opinion of her was too negative at the time for her to get any sort of contract.
