Octomom: 5 Things to Know About Nadya Suleman! (VIDEO)

You think Kate Gosselin has it rough with her "eight"? Try having fourteen kids. That's the fate of Nadya Suleman — a 39-year-old woman you may know better as "Octomom."

Check out the video above for five fun facts we bet you didn't know about this, ahem, goddess of fertility!

No, she's not the Octomom because she has eight arms — though we bet she wishes she did sometimes! She got the name after delivering octuplets in January 2009. That'd be a major burden on anyone, but Nadya had six older children.

When it was discovered that she was unemployed and living off public assistance, public opinion turned against her — she even received death threats!

That was just the start of a long and very strange relationship between Nadya and the public and the media. Case in point: a 2011 Life & Style interview in which she said that she is disgusted by babies and that she loves her octuplets but regrets having them (per CNN).

Add that to a porn star turn, bouts with bankruptcy, and multiple fraud investigations, and you have a stranger-than-fiction tale that's too real for reality TV. (Television networks reportedly balked at the chance of making a reality show starring Nadya.)

Check out the video above for more details on Nadya's goings-on.
