Dear Oprah and Diane: Please Mute the Abuser

Dear Oprah Winfrey and Diane Sawyer,

I implore you both to refrain from giving Nadya Suleman a bigger voice.

The woman is clearly deranged, she’s created 14 new people and subjected them to gross neglect from the moment of conception. Rather than exalt this woman, and give her the attention she so desperately craves, please ignore her. Feeding her illness is akin to telling an anorectic she’s plumped up a little.

Perhaps instead you’ll parade medical ethicists, malpractice attorneys and mothers of multiples in front of the screen.

I promise, we’ll still tune in (I actually use my DVR), and ladies, we’ll talk about you.

And if you listen to my plea, I’ll talk about you nicely.

Warm Regards,

Jessica Gottlieb

  1. Agreed. She is using pregnancy and raising multiple children as a means for fame. Parenting is about raising kids to become responsible adults. These children are tools of the mom from the start, and I doubt she has really thought about how she will give each what they need.

    Having a bunch of babies doesn’t qualify someone as an “expert” at raising children any more than getting shot makes you an expert on guns. She is a pitiable person, not a hero. The focus should be on the children, not on the mother.

    That is where I feel the worst. I feel that the kids are the sideshow in all of this. They are a spectacle – fodder for the tabloids and tabloid TV. The only reason this family deserves people to give money is for the sake of the kids, not the fame of the mother.

  2. This whole story makes me ill. I agree Jessica she doesn’t need more air time. The thing that is really driving me crazy though is that a doctor would acutally implant all of those eggs in a 33 year old, unmarried mom of 6. It concerns me that she will most likely end up on welfare and taxpayers will be paying for the hospital bills and childrens upkeep. Not to mention that as a single mom there is no way she can give all of those kids the care that they need both physically and emotionally.

  3. The doctors who helped her conceive these children (all of them) should be outed and held accountable, but in the meantime, she deserves our pity not 15 minutes of fame.

  4. Jessica, I completely agree. I would even to go so far as to say any company who dares to use her as a spokesperson should be boycotted for encouraging her. The doctor who allowed this to happen should be forced to support her and her 8 babies instead of us taxpayers.
    I hope that after all this the government finally steps in like they did in the EU and put a maximum number of embryos that can be implanted, to prevent this type of thing from happening again.

  5. Well said Jessica. This story is just begging to be turned into some kind of twisted combination of John and Kate Plus 8 and one of those specials on the Duggars. I sincerely hope it doesn’t happen though.

    As for Dr. Rob who said: “Having a bunch of babies doesn’t qualify someone as an “expert” at raising children any more than getting shot makes you an expert on guns.” AMEN!

  6. Wow. You hit the nail right on the head. I, however, will not watch Oprah no matter what. She lost me when she flogged James Frey on her show. Come on. The guy embellished his story for a novel. Is that so bad? It’s not as if he killed someone. The only reason she was upset was because she thought she might look bad. Poor James Frey probably started using drugs all over again after that. Oprah makes me SICK.
    just my opinion

  7. I agree completely. If this woman ends up with her own show like Jon+Kate+8, I will throw up. It’s only going to encourage more couples to out-multiple the latest multiples, and ultimately it endangers the lives and well-being of the multiples themselves!

    I’m a twin mom — I think 2, 3 or 4 pose enough of a risk as it is, and I can’t believe any responsible doctor would implant more than 4.
