Nadya Suleman puts her kids to work in reality TV show

July 25, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Octomom Nadya Suleman has found a more lucrative way to cash in on her children. She has just signed an agreement for each of her 14 children to earn $250 a day to star in a reality television show. The infamous unemployed mother had been caring for her six other children with the help of food stamps and Social Security disability payments for three of the youngsters. Suleman has previously said that some of the disability money was spent on in vitro fertilizations, which was used for all 14 of her children.But now the camera-loving Suleman, has signed a deal with Eyewitness, a European production company whose TV credits include the train wreck Breaking Bonaduce as well as The Biggest Loser.  The contracts, which are awaiting a judge’s approval, guarantee that the kids will collectively earn about $250,000 over three years—though 15 percent of their earnings will be stored in a “Coogan Trust Account,” as required by California law, which can only be accessed once the children turn 18 or become legally emancipated. No word yet on how much Nadya makes directly in this deal. Just look at Jon and Kate Goselin for some insight as to how ‘not healthy’ these shows tend to be for the families.

The news comes as Suleman and RadarOnline have faced allegations of labor abuses in recent months for shooting video of her children.  On Monday, a hearing will be held over the lawsuit brought by Gloria Allred over the alleged abuse of child labor laws.  The show is set to begin filming September 1, providing there are no legal hangups.
