CHICAGO - The father of the woman who recently gave birth to octuplets has told Oprah Winfrey that the actions of his daughter and her doctor were "absolutely irresponsible."
Ed Doud says in an interview taped Thursday for "The Oprah Winfrey Show" that he questions the "mental situation" of his daughter, Nadya Suleman. The 33-year-old California woman, who already had six children, gave birth to octuplets in late January after undergoing in vitro fertilization.
But in excerpts released by Harpo Productions Inc., Doud says Suleman and her children need help, and people shouldn't punish them for what she did by holding back on donations.
Nadya Suleman's mom's house in undergoing foreclosure because of $24k in back payments on her mortgage. Nadya Suleman, however, managed to make $1.2 million off her Today Show interview ,

It's strange according to this website , I have also attached the official documents, OctoMom and Octo-granny hadn't paid their mortgage in more than 10 months. If my math ability serves me well, that would be approximately from 3 months before the octuplets were implanted in Nadya Suleman? The octuplets being 2 months premature?
So at the time that Nadya Suleman decided that she needed/wanted more children she already knew they would soon have nowhere to live as they could no longer pay the mortgage on their home?
The story becomes more convoluted and disgusting as it continues to unfold.

According to an executive at a rival media outlet, Suleman’s father made it clear to those asking for the interview that he anticipated it would cost as much as $1.2 million to cover Suleman's expenses. After NBC secured the exclusive, Suleman's father told other media outlets that the network had approached them with "a real proposal," the executive said.
On Thursday, Suleman’s publicist, Michael Furtney, initially said that whether she is being paid is “between her and NBC.”
If People magazine will pay $100,000 for exclusive pictures, or NBC News will pay $50,000 to use her personal photos during its reports, or Doubleday will pay six figures for a ghost-written book on her tribulations, the financial picture starts to look a bit brighter.
