'Octomom' Nadya Suleman Off Welfare, Thanks To Stripping, Porn

Posted: Updated:

When Nadya "Octomom" Suleman was driven to seek government assistance, she told me she was deeply embarrassed about getting herself into such a financial mess. She said, "[I] would do anything to provide for my kids. I'm the one who got into the bad position, and I will be the one to get myself out of it.” And now, after just a few months, Suleman is no longer on welfare.

"Nadya has been working very hard to support her children," a friend of the mother of 14 tells me. "She has made over six figures since she was at her very lowest point in March when she was forced to get [government] help. She has learned her lesson."

With the help of her manager, Gina Rodriguez, who booked Suleman a slew of appearance deals (including stripping and boxing), a solo porn tape and several endorsements, Suleman thinks the future could be bright for her and her children.

"She is doing very good right now," Rodriguez tells me. "We are hoping the pace keeps up."
