Debt-Ridden Octomom Sells Her Bra for Cash

In an effort to keep her home, Nadya Suleman sold personal items -- and photos with her kids! -- at a yard sale on Saturday

Nadya "Octomom" Suleman has gone from shocking overnight sensation to a tabloid cautionary tale. But the (in)famous mom is remaining optimistic, despite her latest financial woes.

So just how bad are things for 35-year-old Suleman and her brood? On Saturday the Octomom held a yard sale at her California home (which is in danger of foreclosure) where she sold off some of some of her personal items -- including her underwear!

According to CNN, Suleman auctioned various undergarments, including the post-babies bikini she wore on the cover of Star and a signed nursing bra. Suleman even used her kids to bring in money. If visitors wanted a picture with her and her 14 children, they had to shell out $100. She also sold her couch, baby clothes and her refrigerator.

While Suleman admitted the yard sale was "a matter of survival" due to "financial troubles," her attorney Jeff Czech claims the cash-strapped celeb remains optimistic.

"Recently, things have begun to get dire," Czech told People. "But several times in the past, just when things got bad, the money comes in. She's hopeful things will work out."

He also says that while Suleman (who's rumored to be on welfare) "loathes the limelight," she realizes it's a big moneymaker for her and her children. But, Czech assures Suleman will continue to turn down porn offers. "She thinks it's sick," he says. 

We admire Suleman's decision to not stoop to that low, but it seems she's going to have to think fast to pull in more cash. Amir Haddidan, the man who Suleman owes more than $7,000 in back payments, plans to evict the family from their home. "I'm sick of it," he told People. "I want my house back."

What do you think Nadya Suleman should do next? Chime in below!
