We’ll soon be seeing a lot more of Octomom Nadya Suleman and her kagillion kids.
Oh, but don’t think it’s all about Nadya making a buck or two – each kid will be making about $250 a day for three years, totaling around $250,000.
Octomom has worked out the deal with a British production company.
…..she’ll get $125,000 collectively for 36 days of shooting the first year; $75,000 for 21 days in the second year; and $50,000 for 14 days the third year. Also according to the contract 15% of what the children earn will go into trust funds which they can’t touch until they are 18 or legally emancipated.
Filming will being in September and supposedly it will be more of a documentary type show than a “reality” show, focusing more on family milestones through out the years.
To be perfectly honest, I don’t know how I feel about this. On the one hand, it’s good gossip fodder, but on the other, it’s fairly exploitative.
Plus there’s a hole in reality TV now with the demise of Jon & Kate Plus 8 – Octomom and her brood could quite possibly be a successful replacement.
And, you know, I gotta give her props for making a buck off whatever she can – it’s the American way, after all; perhaps the naysayers are just jealous.
