LOS ANGELES, CA -- When Nadya Suleman received more than $165,000 in disability payments for an on-the-job injury, she did the only sensible thing: she got a divorce and started having babies via IVF. Now, the unemployed but college educated "Octomom"- of 14 is being offered a sweet way to feather her copiously populated nest thanks to a $1 million offer from Vivid Entertainment.
According to a press release from Vivid and a flurry of judgmental and gossipy bloggers, Suleman has the opportunity to join the Vivid Girl team of mainstream turned hardcore cuties that includes Kim Kardashian, Pamela Anderson and former Miss USA Kelli McCarty.
In addition to any fame and chance at actual intercourse that the opportunity might afford the 33-year-old Suleman, the move could also save her home from foreclosure, as well as give her own over-worked and financially bankrupt mega-babysitting mother a much-deserved rest.
To further sweeten the pot, Vivid, Vivid has offered Suleman a year of health insurance for herself and her family for a year.
Of course, the press release actually says that the financial offer is worth "up to $1 million,"- meaning that, insurance benefits aside, the final dollar amount could be far below the much repeated sum.
However it plays out financially, Vivid co-owner Steven Hirsch has a point when he states that "Nadya obviously needs income to assure that her children are secure,"- which he says is the motivation for his company's generous offer of cash, prizes and a more traditional approach to sexuality than a visit to the fertility doctor and a chilled Petri dish filled with zygotes.
"We've had many single mothers work for us over the years,"- Hirsch points out,"- and their income from Vivid has been very important to them. We would schedule production so that the movie could be shot in less than one week."-
Now is an excellent time for Suleman to consider prospective media ventures, given that death threats lead to at least one PR agency backing out of its pro bono representation of the fecund divorcee with dual pregnancy and Angelina Jolie obsessions. Making matters worse is the fact that her book agent has also opted out of handling her headline hoarding story, all while an increasing number of frustrated and suddenly moral-minded Californian's feel comfortable shouting insults at her, including claims that she will worsen the states financial woes with her prodigiously public agency reliant household.
Hirsch prefers to put a positive spin on the situation, observing that "There is a tremendous amount of interest in Nadya and we can help her capitalize on that interest and put some real cash in her bank account."-
If Suleman chooses to accept Hirsch's offer, hopefully the money will indeed go into her bank account -- and not into another bout of plastic surgery or in vitro fertilization treatments.
