Nadya Suleman Reality Show Planned

Nadya Suleman, the woman now famous, or infamous, for giving birth to eight children at once, is planning a documentary series, although it sounds very much like a reality show, about the lives of her children:

"It is official. I'm going to be doing a show, but it's not a reality show," Suleman told Life & Style magazine, adding that the series would be made by the British arm of independent production company Eyeworks.

"What I'm doing with this TV show is basically creating documentaries about the lives of my children. It's going to be an ongoing thing, and it will follow them from now until they are 18," she said.

However, the Live Feed says that these reports are premature and that most networks "cringe at the prospect" of a Suleman reality show:

And according to Eyeworks, even they don't have a deal with her yet, though the parties are in talks.

"At this time we are in active negotiations with Nadya and her attorney for an unscripted format following the life of Nadya and her children," said Eyeworks CEO Reinout Oerlemans in a statement. "Nadya's story is a very unique and exciting one that needs to be told in the right manner ... We are confident that we are the right party to tell their story around the world."

Suleman has a total of 14 children, and presumably the documentary would include the previous six kids she had before birth the octuplets.

Suleman has come under intense criticism for having these children because she was recently receiving welfare and living with her parents when she became pregnant with the octuplets. However, in a bid to raise some money, Suleman is seeking to trademark the name "Octomom" to attach it to her own brand of products, and she has launched a website to facilitate donations from sympathizers.
