Nadya "Octomom" Suleman won't let a little thing like pride stand between her and a $5,000 check. Fresh off of making her first pornographic video, the bankrupt mother of 14 became a stripper for a night, earning five grand to dance topless at a Miami club on Friday night.
The 37-year-old newsmaker was paid to dance for two 12-minute sets on Friday, according to the Miami Herald. For the first dance, she wore a dominatrix outfit, complete with an Eyes Wide Shut-style mask, thigh-high leather boots and a riding crop. Her second time onstage, she donned a "naughty schoolgirl outfit" with knee socks, pigtails and a plaid kilt. Though she reportedly attracted 400 audience members (twice as many as usual), the other dancers didn't exactly see Nadya as competition.
"She's really stiff," a stripper named Jennifer told the Herald when Suleman took the stage. "Oh my God, she can't dance. But it's good for the rest of us girls because she made it a busy Friday night. We're going to get extra tips."
Apparently, the mother of octuplets had some trouble with even the basics of stripping, and needed another dancer to help her remove her gloves. Still, the Herald claims that her "obviously altered breasts" got cheers from the audience, and patrons snatched up the T-shirts that read: "I saw Octomom naked at the Playhouse South." (You can see photos of her performance here.)
Since declaring bankruptcy in May, Suleman has made it clear that she'll do pretty much anything to support her family. That includes the topless photos she sold earlier this year, her pay-per-minute phone conversations for Dial-A-Star, and her X-rated "self-pleasure" video.
However, her night as a stripper may end up costing Nadya more money than she made. Prior to her dancing debut, a different Florida strip club filed a lawsuit against Suleman, claiming she had already agreed to dance for them (as promotion for her X-rated video) and couldn't legally appear at a competing club. The rival club is demanding $15,000 to compensate for her breach of contract. Who knew that Octomom's stripping skills would be so in demand?
