Octomom Checks Into Rehab For Addiction to Xanax — What About Her 14 Kids?
Nadya Suleman has 14 children — four daughters and 10 sons — so stress? Yeah. But right now most of the stress is probably felt by the kids, because Mama is in the middle of a 30-day rehab stint.
A rep for the woman known as "Octomom" told TMZ Nadya checked herself into a rehab center in SoCal late in October, acknowledging a dependence on the anti-anxiety drug Xanax. The rep said Nadya wants to get off the drugs she was prescribed by her doctor and make sure she is "the best mother she can be."
Here's the kicker: TMZ said Nadya can afford the treatment because she's reportedly been making good money from her porn career (!), but the rehab facility "offered to pick up the tab anyway." Huh? Why? Publicity? Maybe they just felt sorry for the kids. It's hard not to. TMZ said they are now being taken care of three nannies and two of Nadya’s friends.
In other TMZ news, Octomom’s 11-year-old son reportedly watched his mom’s recent porno... Ick.
