Or so think the opportunistic peddlers at adult powerhouse Vivid Entertainment, who have made Nadya Suleman a halfway decent indecent proposal, offering the cash-strapped mother of 14 $1 million plus a year of health insurance in exchange for shaking her babymaker in a film.
“Nadya obviously needs income to assure that her children are secure so we are offering her up to $1 million to ‘act’ in one movie,” says Vivid cochair Steven Hirsch.
“We’ve had many single mothers work with us over the years and their income from Vivid has been very important to them. We would schedule production so that the movie could be shot in less than one week.”
And they say chivalry is dead.
“There is a tremendous amount of interest in Nadya and we can help her capitalize on that interest and put some real cash in her bank account,” Hirsch said, adding that, offscreen at least, they would do their best to make sure Suleman wasn’t put into any compromising positions.
“As with our Vivid Girls, she would have her choice of partners, including ‘Octodad.’ ”
The offer, while clearly not in the best of taste, couldn’t have come at a better time.
Suleman sat down with the marginally less exploitative Dr Phil McGraw this week, and revealed fears that the hospital will not release her octuplets until she has proven she can provide them with adequate care and living arrangements—this, in the wake of reports that she is being evicted from her home for failing to make good on more than $23,000 in mortgage payments.
The babies are currently receiving care at Los Angeles’ Kaiser Permanente Medical Center.
Suleman, who currently has no job and who has been receiving government assistance for her six older children, sat down with Dr Phil for a two-part special, the first of which airs today.
Staying true to straight-talk form, the good doctor didn’t hold back in his critique of the mother.
“I see somebody I do believe is very loving, but I see somebody that has such a Pollyanna disconnect with real-world realities, and what she’s getting ready to face, it’s like she’s on a Disney ride.”
Dr Phil told Suleman, “If you don’t have plans in place you need to say so, so we can help…People need to know you get it.”
“I think I’ll fully get it when they are ready to come home,” she said.
