The Nadya Suleman AKA Octomom saga continues. Her father, Ed Doud (Octogramps?), made an appearance on Oprah today and had a few things to say about his daughter...
On her TV Interviews:
They took her out of the hospital by midnight to a secret location. They did not even give her a chance to rest, to sleep, where she's still under medication and not feeling well."
"They bombard her with all these cameras," Doud said. "I am not saying that they kidnapped her. What I am saying is that it absolutely should have given her a little time until she heals at least and not be under so much medication."
The NBC interviews with Suleman aired Feb. 9 and 10 on the network's "Today" and "Dateline" shows. She gave birth to the octuplets on Jan. 26th. She was released from the hospital Feb. 5th.
NBC released the following statement to The Associated Press: "NBC News stands by every aspect of our interview with Nadya Suleman. Contrary to her father's allegations, we did not take Nadya from the hospital and the interview, which was conducted with respect, took place at a time of her choosing."
When asked by Oprah if he felt Nadya was under duress during the interview, Doud said, "That's how I feel."
On Her Childhood:
In the NBC interview, Suleman said she "longed for certain connections and attachments with another person that ... I really lacked, I believe, growing up." She described her childhood "pretty dysfunctional."
Doud said No Way..."We gave her so much love," he said. "No child has so much love. I thought what she meant is because she is the only child. I'm sure that's what she meant. She really wanted a brother or sister."
On Her Mental State:
According to excerpts released from Harpo Productions, Mr. Doud questions his daughter’s sanity and calls the Nadya's behavior "absolutely irresponsible." "Now I’m no psychiatrist, but I question her mental situation," he said.
As some of you may already know, Octogrammy is in danger of losing the Octohome because she is, believe it or not, behind on the house payments. As we have said before in our other Nadya Suleman posts...fame does not always equate to instant riches. And infamy? Well, you know the answer to that.
Bottom line: The woman is nuts and was looking for a ticket to the big time.
