This past Saturday (September 25) Octomom Nadya Suleman held a yard sale outside her La Habra, California home in efforts to pay her mortgage and feed her 14 children. While Suleman had hoped to make $100,000 to stave off foreclosure of her home, she netted a mere 3% of that figure, or $2,600.
According to a report in the Los Angeles Time, the Orange County Register stated that Suleman sold photos with her for $10 and charged $100 for those who wanted to pose with her and her bevy of octuplets.
Part of that $2,600 came from the sale of a Lakers jersey signed by Suleman for $125, eight devil Halloween costumes which netted $50, and a refrigerator that earned her $85.
Suleman also sold the red hot bikini she wore for the cover feature of Star Magazine in January (one year after the octuplets were born), a bra with gummy bear stains on it, and a “time-out” baby chair that Oprah Winfrey gave her when she appeared on Oprah’s show.
Suleman has reported to RadarOnline that she is “destitute” and is facing foreclosure unless she can come up with a balloon mortgage payment of $450,000 by October 9.
See Suleman’s latest video interview with RadarOnline here.
Just recently, Suleman was offered $500,000 by adult filmmaker Vivid Entertainment if she would give them “one hour for one scene.” Octomom is insulted and continues to steadfastly and very publicly refuse their offer. In fact, she swore she would don a burka if she met with Vivid’s President and CEO, Steven Hirsch.
