Did NBC Pay Octuplet’s Mom for an Interview? Did Octuplet’s Grampa Ask?

NBC says they didn’t pay a mother of 14 for her story and other reports have the grandfather with his hand outstretched.

From the LAT:

According to an executive at a rival media outlet, Nadya Suleman‘s father made it clear to those asking for the sit-down that he anticipated it would cost as much as $1.2 million to cover Suleman’s expenses. After NBC secured the exclusive, Suleman’s father told other media outlets that the network had approached them with “a real proposal,” the executive said.

On Thursday, Suleman’s publicist, Michael Furtney, initially said that whether she is being paid is “between her and NBC.” He later said he misspoke and insisted that she was not compensated for the interview.

“NBC News does not and will not pay for an interview,” said “Today” spokeswoman Megan Kopf.

Jossip says their informant told them NBC paid Suleman ‘upwards of $300,000′.

Why the denial, NBC? It seems more unethical to use a mother of 14 for ratings gold and not help her pay for cribs and child leashes. Shudder.

Also Wowowow says ‘eventually she wants to earn big bucks as a talking head on television as an authority on child care’. Yeah, wow is right.

Octuplets Story Promises to Get Even Creepier

In the video above, we love how the ‘media circus’ is seven people. This alleged circus is less than the amount of babies involved in this story.

Nadya Suleman, mother of a baker’s dozen plus one of artificially inseminated offspring says that she wanted to have a huge family.

More bits have trickled out from the Ann Curry interview. More will be broadcast on Today on Monday and on Dateline on Tuesday according to the LAT.

It’s just like the Katie Couric/Sarah Palin interviews. Just a little bits and pieces before we see the entire picture of the train wreck we have on our hands.

UPDATE: Bit of the Curry interview aired today on Today. Not Monday.

Eight is Clearly Not Enough…

What’s the weirdest part of the octuplets story?
( polls)

Everyday there is more weirdness in the case of Nadya Suleman, the single mother of baker’s dozen plus one of children from Whittier.

Today it’s that she was involved in two workers comp claims…so far.
