Octomom Nadya Suleman sells nursing bra, kids' Halloween costumes
Posted by Sarah Anne Hughes
Just when you thought it was safe to go onto the Internet... She's back! Nadya Suleman, better known as the controversial Octomom, held a garage sale last Saturday on the lawn of her La Habra home to raise money for the bare necessities. "It's just a matter of survival: Food, shelter and clothing," Suleman told the Orange County Register. "There are financial troubles." I'll say. Suleman's home will go into foreclosure Oct. 9 if she can't come up with a $450,000 mortgage payment.
So obviously the best way to come up with nearly half a million dollars is... a garage sale! Items for sale included an autographed nursing bra, a fridge and eight devil costumes worn by her children. While the children themselves weren't for sale, photographs with the octuplets were available for $100.
If for some reason you feel that owning Ocotomom memorabilia is a good investment, you can purchase a piece online. Rick.com is hosting auctions for several items including the octuplets' first pairs of shoes. And with the current bid below $20, that's quite a deal.
"She's struggling right now," her lawyer Jeff Czech told People magazine. "Recently, things have begun to get dire. But several times in the past, just when things got bad, the money comes in. She's hopeful things will work out."
For the sake of her 14 children -- that's the octuplets plus her other six kids -- I hope Mr. Czech is right. But for some wacky reason, I think it's going to take more to than a garage sale to get Suleman out of her "dire" situation.
