Multiple-friendly network passes on reality show By Matthew B. Zeidman HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Today) 2/18/09 – TLC, the cable network known for its reality shows featuring large broods, has decided not to pursue a program featuring Nadya Suleman, the mother of 14 who recently gave birth to octuplets. “TLC is not pursuing any program at this time with Nadya Suleman,” TLC president Eileen O’Neill told Us magazine Wednesday. “We wish the family well.” The family-friendly channel had recently expressed interest in basing a show around the mother of multiples, who sparked controversy with her decision to be artificially inseminated with her eight latest children despite collecting government assistance and having six older children to raise. TLC currently features two other programs centered on large families: “Jon and Kate Plus 8,” which follows a couple raising one set of twins and one set of sextuplets, and “18 Kids and Counting,” which follows an evangelical mother, who has so far given birth to 18 children, and her husband.

    I am disappointed: I was looking forward to watching a show featuring this family. I am afraid all this negativity is simply reflecting the economic problems in the country,especially in Ca. If those babies had born in the Midwest there probably wouldn’t have been nearly the outcry!

    Get real. Anyone living on assistance and not working should not be commended for having more children.

    Thank god TLC is not hand her and offer on a show deal..That’ the only reason she had them babies. Come on now you have 6 kids already and live in a 3 bedroom house which is already to small for the 7 of you, you go ahead and spend 100k on IVF .Now what mother well a mother who put their chilren first do that .I would of went an bought a bigger house ……She is nothing but a selfish Bi#$&

    Anyone who would sell their children’s privacy should not have them.
