'Oprah' spends 24 hours with 'Octomom' Nadya Suleman

Nadya What's life like with 14 kids? Controversial octuplet mom Nadya Suleman agreed to let Oprah Winfrey's cameras into her La Habra home for 24 hours. "The Oprah Show" website says Suleman "sets the record straight on plastic surgery, reality shows and the letter she sent to Oprah" in the episode, which airs Tuesday on ABC.

On a video teaser for the show, Oprah questions Suleman, whom she describes as "the most scrutinized mom in America": "Will you ever name your children's father?" "Have you dated since the octuplets?" "Have you ever thought of putting a child in foster care?"

Suleman made news in January 2009 when she gave birth to only the second set of octuplets in the U.S. She drew immediate criticism for her decision to use in vitro fertilization as a single, unemployed mother who already had six children, also conceived through fertility treatments.

Her doctor, Michael Kamrava, has been accused by the California Medical Board of a pattern of gross negligence that could lead to the revocation of his medical license.
