It's been a few weeks now since their birth, and yet the controversy surrounding Nadya Suleman's (aka "Octo-mom's") decision to give birth to her eight remaining embryos continues to swirl like a hurricane. One thing's for sure, though - for every bit of support she gets, she's also handed quite a bit of criticism (even from her own mother and that bald bastion of mental health, Dr. Phil).
Is it justified? Well, when it comes to the single, unemployed mother already raising six kids on top of the eight new bundles of joy and is also on food stamps, it's up to you, the reader, to decide.
How will she pay for the hospital bill? Food? Diapers? Formula? Isn't there any generous company out there who will help her???
Sure there is - the good ole' compassionate porn industry.
T'would seem major porn distributor Vivid Entertainment (yeah, like I'm gonna' provide a link to that) sent Ms. Suleman a nice letter offering her $1 million bucks and health care for a year if she'd star in one of their...uh..."movies". (Pretty generous! That's-what-three weeks of formula for her kids?)
But before she could even think the perverted proposition over, the president of another morally upright porn company, Pink Visuals (I love these names!) offered her a year's supply of Huggies provided she didn't take off her clothes.
Well, that's...um....insulting?? Oh, wait - "There's a great deal of stigma attached to being a porn star" and Ms. Suleman needs to think "in the best interest of (her) children."
Well, thank goodness these smut peddlers are thinking of the best interests of her kids.
(For the record, Nadya declined the offer to be a "star", saying "Those guys at Vivid video must be nuts! Who wants to see me naked? Maybe in a year when the baby fat goes away."
But she was joking.
All I can hope is that another upstanding industry comes forth to help out Ms. Suleman. Who could it be? I'm looking at YOU, big tobacco!!!
