Octoplet mom attorney: Nadya Suleman close to inking reality TV deal
UPI News Service, 04/10/2009
Nadya Suleman's attorney says the single, unemployed U.S. mother of 14 kids, including newborn octuplets, is close to inking a TV deal.
Lawyer Jeff Czech told Usmagazine.com the unlikely celebrity met with four production companies this week about developing a reality show or long-term documentary about her and her family.
"Nadya has been interested in, and hoping to find, something not so intrusive to the family and babies while, at the same time, (something to) sort of focus on trying to make a little income for herself," Czech said.
"She got railed against for the kids being on (government assistance). It is heavy on her mind and she is simply looking."
Usmagazine.com said Suleman has no health insurance and her children receive medical services through California state-funded Medi-Cal.
She also admitted she may apply to the Women Infant Children program to pay her $2,000 a month formula bill and Czech said she is still accepting donations through her Web site.
"Production companies...would like to (do) some light filming now of the infants and then sort of wait until they are starting to walk and learning to talk and things like that," Czech told Usmagazine.com. "Maybe take some short clips in between but nothing (steady) until (the octuplets are) walking."
