Octomom Losing House, Goes Shopping

From the UK’s Telegraph:

Octuplets mother ‘set to lose home’

By Noam Friedlander in Los Angeles
19 Feb 2009

According to a mortgage default notice filed last week with the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder’s Office, Miss Suleman’s mother is more than $23,000 behind in payments on her house in the Los Angeles suburb of Whittier.

"It’s not my home. I got to move," said Ms Suleman. "Yeah, I need a new house." …

In 2006, Mrs Suleman borrowed $453,750 from the IndyMac Bank, agreeing to make payments on her loan monthly. However, last May, she stopped making the payments and, as of Feb 5, 2009 owes the loaner $23,224.98 in back pay, according to the Notice.

Mrs Suleman filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy last year, claiming she has between $500,000 and $1,000,000 in liabilities. The bankruptcy case was later dismissed

As the above article notes, it was the celebrity watcher site, TMZ that first broke this story.

TMZ then supplemented their investigative reportage with this update:

OctoMom Gets Her MAC On

Posted Feb 18th 2009

It just keeps getting better. OctoMom just left the MAC cosmetic counter at a Nordstrom department store.

She was at the Brea Mall near L.A. this afternoon. She bought stuff, though we don’t know exactly what. But here’s what we do know. Eye shadow costs around 15 bucks a pop.

She may soon not have a place to live but she’ll sure look good.

UPDATE: OctoMom blew some of her hard earned handout money on one tube of clear lip gloss — which ran the food stamp user a cool $14.50 plus tax. In comparison, a 48-pack of Pampers usually runs around $16.99.

Perhaps we are cynical, but it sounds like Ms. Suleman has decided to cash in on the mortgage crisis as well.

  1. I say we find 14 families who are current on their mortgages or rent and let them adopt her children.

    I’ve been writing about this woman on another blog … I have no doubt she and her family are waiting for TCO’s “stimulus package” to come stimulate them.

  3. CaliforniaBear says:

    What’s the big deal? It’s not octomom’s house, it’s her mom’s? (CaliforniaBear says sarcastically).

    This is completely rediculous. I agree with englishqueen. Let responsible people adopt the children. That way octomom can buy all the cosmetics she wants.

  4. pdsand says:

    Eeww, I wouldn’t want her crazy kids, they’d probably kill me in my sleep. You know she’s probably training them as classical ninjas or something else crazy like that.

  5. wardmama4 says:

    How is it her home, if she is living with her parents?!?

    Her mother is defaulting which makes one wonder why – if Ms Suleman has the $$$$$s to get more babies – doesn’t she have the money to assist with the mortgage? Bet that baby making procedure cost a damn bit more than $23,000.

    Of course, I’m thinking like a normal person – not a Fiberal. She went shopping at Nordstrom.

    Where are my priorities?

  6. Consilience says:

    Buying a little “dime-store topsoil” to attract mens, no doubt…this woman is truly disturbed—and yeah, wardmama, those priorities seem a little askew!

  7. curvyred says:

    I feel she is truly disturbed on so many levels – there is an attorney who was on Nancy Grace who said she called the California Department of child services to investigate Octo-mom, she feels she is mentally unstable and not capable of handling the six she already has (in fact I believe her mom is taking care of them currently.) let alone the other eight when they come home from the hospital.

    I still think the fertility clinic should be held liable for some of this, isn’t there some sort of testing/background check the patient with goes prior to treatment?

    Perhaps the grandma is so in debt because of her wanton daughter.

    I work with a woman (albeit not under fertility treatments) who currently has six children, actually delivered 8, one died in childbirth and one was adopted out. Six different daddies, and plans to have more, she only works 20 hours a week because she “has to”

    The sad thing is we reward this behavior with handouts, free housing, food stamps, medical care, education, etc. The woman I work with lives in a beautiful townhome on our dime. She has had two free college educations, and just like Anne C said she is the eternal “victim”

    This is a microcosm of everything that is wrong with socialism, et al. She has to use my (our) money for food, diapers and other necessities, but can shop for very expensive makeup. Sickening. Show should be spending her money (whatever it is, and wherever she gets it) on her necessities, then she wouldn’t have money left over for inane luxuries. And make no mistake, M-A-C cosmetics are absolutely luxuries…

    • Barbie says:

      Didn’t this woman have a nose job to look like Angelina Jolie (I think I heard that)? And injections (botox?) in her lips to plump them up (and this was right after she gave birth). Does anyone seriously think she’s not going to blow money on herself? I’m with wardmama4, Octomom should have used all that money to help her mom pay the mortgage. Of course, that’s a pretty hefty mortgage. How’d Octobmom’s mom qualify for this? If she has such a hefty mortgage, the house looks really dumpy. Couldn’t a $400,000 mortgage buy more than that? (I just remember hearing the house was really dumpy)

    • Colonel1961 says:

      A $400k house can be a ‘dump’ in some parts of California. Met with some friends in Manhattan Beach, CA about eight weeks ago, and houses that looked like $300k were actually worth two million…

      And, Barbie, don’t be surprised if these folks used Octomom’s children’s disability income (SSI?) to help qualify for the mortgage. That is, if they had to show any proof of income at all! I’ve heard bizarre (and true) stories from the world of mortgage brokers.

    • Barbie says:

      Well I must admit I’m clueless about housing costs,but if I spent $400 k on a house, it wouldn’t be a dump. But then a friend of mine in real estate a few years ago tried to interest me in the ‘interest only’ mortgage payments so I could buy a house. SILLY ME – I thought – well that’s dumb, I can’t afford to buy a house. If I’d only known about Obama then, y’all could be paying a mortgage for me. DANG. (btw, just being sarcastic about the ‘y’all could be paying a mortgage for me’)

    • Colonel1961 says:

      Barbie: not to worry. Sarcasm is legal tender at Sweetness & Light…

    • caligirl9 says:

      Actually the house they bought was valued at over $600K when Angela Suleman got a loan for (I think) $450K or thereabouts.
      I also believe that loan was acquired around the time that Ed and Angela had filed for bankruptcy (later withdrawn).
      This whole thing stinks, and honestly, there is enough outrage in California that she will end up on some sort of trouble …

    This is just nuts. There are people out there who desperately want children and cannot have them. Yet this one seems to think she has a clown car going on downstairs and that she can’t possibly be mistaken in thinking food stamps aren’t welfare.

    I truely hope that this family already has a caseworker with CPS (at least one) and close tabs are kept on them. While I hate to think of these poor children being hounded by paparazzi because of their unstable mother, it can’t possibly be doing as much damage to their emotional wellbeing as their own mother is doing. My goodness, children are a commodity to her. Don’t they come and take the cats away from the crazy lady?

    God help those poor kids. Maybe she would be willing to place some of the older children up for adoption since they aren’t quite as cuddly and cute as the new babies are.

    • Colonel1961 says:

      ‘Yet this one seems to think she has a clown car going on downstairs…’ A perfect (and hilarious) description.

  10. Confucius says:

    A few weeks ago, Miss Suleman said her welfare checks were not “welfare” because she had “legitimate needs.” (Which must be in contrast to other welfare recipients who have “illegitimate needs.”)

    So according to Miss Suleman, her welfare checks are not “welfare” because her illegitimate children “legitimately” need lip gloss.

    Hmm. I think I need to lay down.

  11. caligirl9 says:

    TMZ says she’s house-shopping at this moment … a $1.24 million McMansion in Whittier.

    Certainly the Franchise Tax Board is all over this woman’s (and her family’s) ass.

    TMZ also has a link to the litter’s birth certificates.

    The house of cards will fall soon … won’t it?

    • proreason says:


    • Consilience says:

      No is correct. This disturbed and deviant nitwit is mainstream (remember Moynihan’s “defining deviancy down”?)…the leftist socialists celebrate state-dependent wack-jobs like this!!! Hell,I wouldn’t be surprised for the thug messiah to invite her to Washington so we can all feel her pain!!!

    • caligirl9 says:

      I do think what will come out of this is the government having to put itself into another place I feel it shouldn’t be involved in—reproductive technology. Politicians are so stupid that they can’t understand taxes, economic theories, and plenty of other stuff. Medicine is not best learned by reading a book, and politicians don’t even read the damn book, they have an aide do it and then summarize. They have no business butting into regulating IVF but it’s going to happen.

      When medicine can’t police itself, government puts its ugly mug in the mess and really screws things up. At this point it’s insurance companies who are telling your doctors what they can or cannot do treatment-wise. Politicians will decide that no woman can have multiple embryos implanted and perhaps even go so far as to make the doctor financially responsible for a bad outcome. They may put age limits on carrying the pregnancy. Heck, they may even legislate how many IVF kids you can have at all!

      I also think the worker’s comp system will be tinkered with yet again and perhaps females who are too disabled to work are too disabled to be pregnant and they’ll have their benefits cut off. Which I do agree with, by the way. If injured workers can be surveilled and found to be doing something they say they can’t do, their benefits are pulled. Why should pregnancy be any different?

  12. Melly says:

    The more I see this woman in action, the less I blame the fertility doctor. Who exactly was taking advantage of whom???

    What a curious case.

    God help those children.

  13. sheehanjihad says:

    its too bad that the media wont stop…because the worst punishment for this smarmy douchebag would be no attention at all. None. See that look on her face? She feigns indignation while searching for more cameras to pan for…that smug media whore. Cut her off from the public, and she would do something very very stupid to get them back again. To think I am paying her bills out my unemployment…a tax that I already paid tax on…so she can be miss octopuss. Makes my blood boil…..
