Since the news came out of about Nadya Suleman having the eight babies I knew it was about fame and money. Then we find out that she had six other kids at home, her parents home, because she was still going to college. I told myself that I was not going to watch any of these shows that have interviews with her. So this morning I am reading the paper and what do I see but an article about how her interview on Dateline NBC was seen by 11.3 million people.
So here is a woman that risked the life of all eight babies and her own to become rich and famous. Sadly the general public will make it happen for her because they watch and support these shows that have interviews with her. Mark my word that someone will offer her a reality show that will make her lots of money because so many people tuned in to Dateline. It really makes me sick to see someone so obviously use her children for attention and here people are given it to her.
I feel for all 14 of her children.....and hope that they are taken care of, but I will refuse to watch any show having her on it. Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of Jon and Kate plus 8, but they did not have a careless doctor implant her with 6 babies, it was a over reaction to medication and not done on purpose. They also both had jobs and a stable loving home for the twins before they got pregnant with the six. There is a difference between these two ladies, but it makes me ask myself a question, what if Miss Suleman was sitting at home watching that show and got the crazy idea that "Hey I could make money if I had more then six, my doctor will do it!" I mean at that point hadn't her doctor done it with all six children she had previously.
Maybe I am becoming bitter because the TTC journey has been long and hard for me. Two years of trying, and both times I did get pregnant ended in a m/c. I waited 12 years to try for another baby. I had my DD when I was 17 , then graduated High school and went on to college, so that I would be able to offer my DD a better life before I brought any more children into my life. Now I am happily married, have a stable life and can offer more then I could have before. Everytime my AF shows I feel like a failure, like I am broken. So when I see this woman with 14 children with nothing to offer them but love? Am I wrong to find that heartbreaking. That many of us would love to have IVF to have just one, but the cost is crazy, and here is a woman that had all her children with IVF and it did not cost her a thing, because she had something worked out with the doctor? Oh yeah that doctor should lose his medical license for his poor judgement and actions.
Sorry for my super long rant but I really had to get this off of my chest. Again I will not watch any shows with her on them, I will not raise any shows ratings thus helping this woman to achieve the fame and fortune she is after.
I just hope I am not the only one that feels this way.
