Want to go on a date with "Octomom" Nadya Suleman? Now's your chance.

The La Habra mother of 14 apparently has opened an online account auctioning off a date, according to KTLA-TV. The starting bid is $500.

A profile listing the name "Octomom" on the site, www.whatsyourprice.com, includes the 37-year-old's picture and a brief biography.

"My name is Nadya. I have 14 children. I am a single mom and have been celibate for 14 years, all my children were through IVF," the profile reads. "If I have to describe myself I would say I am full of energy, love to work out (when I can get a chance), I am very athletic and love to laugh."

The profile goes on to describe an "ideal date" as "working out or doing something athletic and then having a nice dinner."

A call to Suleman's representative seeking comment was not immediately returned.

The account is the second online money-earning scheme opened in Suleman's name recently. On July 28, an account reportedly created by Orange County resident on gofundme.com began soliciting donations for a down payment on a new home, with a target goal of $150,000.

"I am having to move out of my home soon and i'm very close to being able to buy a home for my kids," reads the page. "Your support is appreciated. Thank you again, Nadya Suleman."

The page also features several photos of Suleman's children.

As of Monday morning, it had earned more than $2,600 in donations.

Suleman drew national attention — and her "Octomom" moniker — when she gave birth to octuplets in 2009. In the years since, Suleman has made headlines because of her financial troubles, most recently in June when her three-bedroom, four-bath house in La Habra was not purchased at a long-postponed auction.

A representative for Suleman told CNN last month that the mother had filmed an adult video and had booked a show at a Florida gentleman's club to help make ends meet.

Suleman filed for bankruptcy April 30, claiming in court documents that she had $50,000 in assets and up to $1 million in debts. The bankruptcy case was later thrown out after Suleman failed to complete the necessary paperwork.
