Emergency Procedures: OctoMom in Surgery, Allred in Court
Yesterday, RadarOnline and Entertainment Tonight announced, OctoMom Nadya Suleman was recuperating in an O.C. hospital following some unspecified surgery. Relax, though, she remembered to leave the lights on at home for her 14 children (including the eight babies) -- and to arrange for someone to look after them. One Suleman watcher wasn't surprised.
"I bet Nadya had a melt down because of the Fox special coming THE DAY
thing. She's probably out of her mind with worry, cause she KNOWS
what's on that footage."
Meanwhile, L.A. attorney Gloria Allred's emergency motion to have a guardian appointed to oversee the finances of Suleman's kids during the upcoming Eyeworks reality TV shooting at Suleman's home was rebuffed in court.
Allred, nevertheless, can refile her motion as a non-emergency matter.
She'd originally submitted it on behalf of former child actor Paul
Petersen (The Donna Reed Show), who heads a kid-actor advocacy
group, A Minor Consideration. A judge approved the request for a
limited guardianship in July, but his ruling was stayed last week by an
appellate court. Finally in the OctoMom universe, the Whittier Daily News has pulled the plug on its long-running Octorazzi blog.
