'Bachelor' creator: Octuplet mom "too radioactive" for a reality series

By Christopher Rocchio, 02/16/2009 

Reality TV producer Mike Fleiss has produced more than his share of controversial reality projects over the years, but even he doesn't want any part of a new reality concept involving new octuplet mother Nadya Suleman and her 14 children.

"Yeah, don't call me.  It's too radioactive," Fleiss -- whose previous reality credits include Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?, Are You Hot?, The Will, and Superstar USA -- told Extra about a reality show starring Suleman and her kids. 

"I don't think anyone reputable will ever do this," he added.

Last week, TLC president Eileen O'Neill confirmed that several production companies affiliated with the network have contacted the 33-year-old Suleman -- who gave birth to octuplets last month -- about the possibility of developing a reality series.

However Suleman's story has received a lot of negative media attention and public scrutiny since she already had six other children under the age of 7 before having the octuplets.  In addition, all of her children were conceived via in vitro treatments and Suleman also receives food stamps.

"I don't think there's ever gonna be a market for her in mainstream media because most people think it's disgusting," Fleiss told Extra.

In addition to Fleiss, The Hills villain Spencer Pratt said he also wouldn't go near Suleman's proposed series.

"It's more of a horror film than a reality show," Pratt told Extra.
