Octo-Mom Nadya Suleman is benefitting from her own version of a U.S. government bailout -- and Kim Kardashian is one taxpayer who isn’t so happy about it!

In a recently taped video, Nadya admits that her kids are still on government-funded Medi-Cal and says she is considering applying for more federal assistance. And while lots of folks are angry at the single mom of 14 relying on government money, it’s Kardashian who put it all into context on her blog Thursday.

Kim writes: “Why is Octomom wearing my Jimmy Choo sunglasses!? I think it's a little ridiculous that she claims she has no money and is on welfare to take care of her 14 children, yet she is out shopping and buying Jimmy Choo sunglasses!

Good point, Kim! Meanwhile, Octo-Mom says on video that “Angels in Waiting” were threatening to abduct her babies. She also charges that nurses for the non-profit group put dirty diapers and bottles on the ground and photographed it, trying to set up Nadya.

Finally, in a scene that scared us as badly as the first Exorcist movie, Nadya describes the group and the “energy” they brought into her home as “Evil, evil, devil’s incarnate!”

Tsk, tsk. You knew that wouldn’t sit well with the group’s attorney, Gloria Allred. In a statement given exclusively to, Gloria said: “Nadya appeared to think that it was more important to bond with the sales people at JCPenney and Target than to be at home bonding with her newly discharged premature infants during the time that AIW was there."

"Nadya continues to attempt self-serving justifications to explain why she was not with her babies for a significant amount of time after four of her babies came home and while Angels in Waiting (AIW) was there to care for them."

"Also, she appears to avoid explaining why she has made a deliberate decision to force the taxpayers to pay for the nurses from Kaiser Permanente who are now caring for the babies rather than accept AIW nurses who refused to and did not take taxpayer funds for caring for her infants."

"Her remarks would be laughable if the consequences were not so serious for the taxpayers and for her babies.”
