For "Octomom" Nadya Suleman, posing nearly naked for cash appears to have been on behalf of the babies: The mother of 14, eight months behind on her mortgage, is facing eviction as early as this week, her lawyer said.
"We are working on it," attorney Jeff Czech said Tuesday, referring to a foreclosure notice the tabloid sensation received recently regarding her four-bedroom La Habra home. "The foreclosure sale is not likely this month," he said, but next.
Suleman reportedly got about $10,000 to pose in nude panties and not much else for the British magazine Closer, sources told TMZ, an amount that would allow her to move into a rental home.
Octomom told the mag -- which calls her, delightfully, "Octomum" -- that she doesn't take state aid, supporting her large family instead off of paid interviews and photo shoots, because she can't hold a regular job with all of her children. Her octuplets were born in 2009, with the other six children coming from five pregnancies, starting with her first son's birth in 2001.
Also in the Closer interview, Suleman bragged about her post-baby body, her celibacy and her parenting skills, pointing out that "I've trained them so well, they can brush their own teeth, dress themselves and scrub each other’s backs –- they’re so independent."
And as for the kids' general lot in life? "I can’t believe how fortunate they are, too," she said. "I'd love to be an octuplet -- their camaraderie and bond is amazing. They look out for each other; they're so lucky.”
In 2009 Suleman turned down a $1-million offer from Vivid Entertainment to do a hard-core porn movie, and last September her real estate agent was trying to leverage her fame to help sell the house.
