Oh Octomom, what a neverending source of amusement you are.

Among others, Suleman owes money to her father, the city's water department, DirecTV and Whittier Christian School, where at least some of her children are students.

Great. Can't afford the rent payments, but still has DirectTV and enrolls her kids in private school. <Facepalm>

I really feel sorry for those 14 kids, growing up with such a snowflake of a mom. And, regarding her finances, I ran across her awhile back on some talk show and with her on the show was none other than Suzi Ormond, giving her some tough talk about "getting her shit together" (as MMM put it in today's blog post).

Apparently Suzi's advice went in one ear and out the other.

This is a good article on how the "10 kids and counting" family cut corners:

All though.... one of the posters in the comments section said the family claims their home and possessions as part of their church which makes everything tax exempt. I really hope that isn't the case.
