Nadya Suleman, better known as the Octomom, has signed a TV deal that will bring viewers a reality television show based on her and her fourteen children.
Shortly after the birth of the octuplets, Suleman was labeled "Octomom" in the media.
Octomom Nadya Suleman, who once swore that she wasn't interested in doing a reality TV show with her brood of 14 children, has signed a contract detailing exactly how much the family is to be paid for a three-year reality program.
According to the contract, each of Octomom's 14 kids will earn $250 per day, for a total payment of nearly $250,000.
Octomom became famous when she gave birth to the world's longest surviving set of octuplets on January 26, 2009.
Just when you think you've heard everything from the Gosselins and Octomom, comes this little tidbit from E!
Apparently there are (or were) plans underway to pair up Jon Gosselin and Octomom for a reality show of their own.
Several weeks ago, Octomom Nadya Suleman commented to the press that she thought Jon Gosselin of Jon and Kate Plus 8 was "hot."
Once that comment had left Octomom's lips, there were rumors swirling around that a reality TV show with the two of them was in the works.
Nadya Suleman, known to millions as Octomom, says that she's open to the idea of having more children should the situation be right.
Octomom caught media attention after giving birth to octuplets in January, 2009.
Octomom also spoke of the public outcry over her decision to involve her children in a reality show.
In addition, the woman known as "Octomom" noted that Kate was "desperate for attention" and further insulted Gosselin's body by calling it "straight" and "boxy."
Is an Octomom reality show in the works?
While there have been several reports that Octomom Nadya Suleman has signed a deal for a reality TV show, the details are still unfolding.
Nadya Suleman, who is perhaps best known by the moniker Octomom, is a young mother with a large stable of children at home.
Soon after the octuplets were born, rumors began to circulate that Octomom would be seeking a reality TV show along the same lines as the Gosselins of Jon and Kate Plus 8.
Finally, in the summer of 2009, news broke that an Octomom reality show would indeed go forward.
Octomom's kids will earn about $250 per day, collectively, for their appearances on this television show.
In September 2009, the Fox network aired a two-hour special called Octomom: The Incredible Unseen Footage.
It was hardly the ratings juggernaut that the network had hoped for, and could perhaps be an indication of just how well an Octomom reality show will fare.
The real question now is whether or not viewers will be interested in seeing more of Octomom and her family.
In the meantime, she has plans for a book, a line of baby care products, and she has even applied to trademark the Octomom name.
Well-know lawyer Gloria Allred, who has also been outspoken on the Octomom situation, said that it was necessary for the state to step in because the Gosselin kids were too young to look after themselves.
