Nadya ‘Octo-Mom’ Suleman has told RadarOnline.com the only money she and her 14 children have will last “maybe a week”, and she is on the verge of having her home foreclosed on.
“We’re destitute right now, we’re not doing well,” Nadya told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive new interview inside her home in LaHabra, California.
Octo-Mom is past due on her mortgage, according to the owner of the house, who told RadarOnline.com that he plans to start the eviction process on Monday.
“I am in default almost a month,” she admitted to RadarOnline.com.

Suleman said paying the rent was one of her priorities, but admitted “food is my first priority” for her brood.
She said, “It takes a couple of months or a few months to be really in default through the bank so it takes time and in those few months I’ll find a way to secure money to pay off the mortgage.”
As RadarOnline.com exclusively revealed, Octo-Mom is almost certain to go on welfare.
Octo-Mom received a flurry of media attention in 2009, however, fame was proved fleeting for the mother of 14 children.
She has not been able to translate her fame into a fortune and faces high living costs.
Octo-Mom said she was hoping to avoid going on public assistance in California.
“I will not,” she insisted. “I’m going to do everything I possibly can not to go on welfare. I believe in my mind whole heartedly there’s always a way.”
Octo-Mom, who confessed she is “worried 24 hours a day” about how she is going to feed her kids, revealed she won’t pose for Playboy or do a porn film, despite lucrative offers.
She told RadarOnline.com: “The biggest paradox is that they’re asking a woman who’s been celibate for almost 11 years to do a porno! What is the irony, what is the paradox in that?”
Suleman’s octuplets are 19 months old now, and she told RadarOnline.com that they are healthy and smart and thriving along with their six older siblings.
