Nadya Suleman & Suze Orman on Oprah

Nadya Suleman visited Oprah for the second time around and this time it was to ask for financial help to keep herself and her fourteen children off of the street. Nadya insisted to Oprah that she was both "financially destitute" and "emotionally depleted."

Oprah arranged for Nadya to meet with Suze Orman to help with her financial crisis. Although Orman seemed to have been reluctant to work with Nadya at first, she did step in and help the single mother of fourteen. Orman probably gave Nadya the best advice there could ever possibly be; to pray and let go of her pride. She told Nadya to stop refusing to get an agent. She has to support those children. Nadya was very much concerned with how people would depict her if she hired an agent or accepted government funded help. She even said she thought people would hate her. Suze's response was; "Everybody thinks you’re crazy for having eight kids. You know it"

After that, Orman pretty much told the single mama to forget what people are or will say, and do what she has to do for those children. Suleman had Nadya get rid of all her nannies, except one. She had her sell things in her house that she didn't need. Nadya chose to do a yard sale and made $1500.00. She then took a celebrity bartending gig which earned her $1000. in two hours! Nadya hired a literary agent. Which I think is a great idea. I would definitely buy her book.

Another interesting point in the interview was when Nadya bashed herself, calling her past actions stupid. Orman pointed out,

"This isn't about you putting yourself down. This is your day in front of the world to go to the deepest part in yourself, to be honest with why, what and now where do we go? But not to condemn yourself."
This perhaps led to the most shocking parts of the interview. Nadya reveals that she felt something was missing from her life. She was barely making it with the six children she already had. Still, this didn't stop her from trying for more, because she was seeking an unconditional love that only children can give. Nadya admitted to Oprah that she was a "baby addict." She compared it to a drug addiction and told Winfrey,


"I think I could have been self-medicating with children."

Suleman even admits that when she couldn't afford to cover the in vitro with her savings, she borrowed money from friends to fund the procedure.

There were parts of the interview that, in my opinion were a little negative. Like, when Oprah and Orman drilled Nadya about plastic surgery and the porn industry. Those conversations, in my opinion, could have been left out. Also, the constant drilling to get Nadya to admit that she regrets having the octuplets, was not cool. Nadya never says that she regrets any of her children. She does say that if she new then, what she knows now, that she would have made better choices. That's a very normal and human thing to say. I admit it as well. I don't regret any my children. I love them dearly. However, I became a mom at the age of fifteen, and if I could go back and make better choices, I would. Who wouldn't? Overall, it was a great interview with lots of self revelations on Nadya's part.

  1. Good post! I didn't watch the hole show, but I didn't like what I see. This was supposed to be a financial procedure to help Nadya, not a show put her more down that she is right now. The whole say that you regret it didn't have its place in the interview. For screaming at Nadya, Orman lost it all. What a horrible show. I hope Nadya got paid to appear on Oprah. Its not Oprah helping Nadya, its more Nadya helping Oprah getting audience. Several times during the interview, Oprah laugh at Nadya. Did you notice? I didn't like that.

  2. Thanks for commenting.

    I agree with you. I didn't like their behavior and I really do hope that Nadya got paid to do this interview. I thought that both Oprah and Suze were being a little insensitive. I felt a little bad for Nadya, because she went to Oprah for help, not to be scrutinized and ridiculed. I think she handled herself well though.

Blurred Lines

Do you know what it's like to lay in someone's arms and feel completely empty? To have their body wrapped around yours, naked, skin touching, breathe on your neck, arms holding you so tight it feels as if they were meant to never let you go. I lose myself in the forehead kisses and the brushing of my hair behind my ears. In the soft whispers and the morning smiles. I lose myself most of the time. But sometimes, I just lay there wrapped in his naked body wondering if he holds everyone like this. Wondering why I keep coming back. Knowing, that I'll come back again.  *Photo by cottonbro from Pexels

Nine Easy to use Apps for Small Cash Advances

Photo by Yan Krukov   Cash Advance apps offer people the ability to borrow small amounts of money in the form of cash advances. Some may have additional features, such as credit-building, saving and budgeting tools, and bank accounts. Most require a monthly membership fee and/or service fees that will be deducted from your account at the same time as your advance repayment. You will need to have a bank account with direct deposit from your employer in order to use these apps. Here is a list of nine, no hassle, Cash Advance apps you can use to get from pay check to pay check. Before I list them, I want to advise against using these apps unless it is an emergency. These should only be used every once in a while. If you are having problems getting from paycheck to paycheck, there is likely a bigger issue at hand. I recommend going over your income and expenses and watching your spending, or getting a second job. Click here for the budgeting app that I use and how it

Trust

Years ago, before I was ever married, I remember asking a friend about trust. She was already married and had been with her husband for a few years. I asked her, "How do you know you can trust him? How do you have faith in him to do the right thing? Don't you ever worry he'll cheat on you?" She told me that you don't put your faith in your husband. You have faith in God. If your husband is doing something wrong, you trust in God to make it right. That conversation has always stuck with me. The bible says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths." (NKV Proverbs 3:5-6). I took her words, my Bible, and six weeks of marital counseling with our pastor into my marriage. Still, after only three months, my husband was having an affair. I felt sick. I felt stupid. I felt betrayed. I was angry, and everything they told me went null and void. When y
