On Monday, human rights advocate and lawyer Gloria Allred filed a petition to appoint a guardian for Nadya Suleman's eight infants to help ensure they are financially represented.

"In the case of the octuplets, rather than choosing to provide her children with a normal life their mother has chosen instead to commercially exploit them," Allred said. "The Guardian will assure that the childrens' compensation is fair and that their money is segregated and supervised. In other words, professional management will help to safeguard the babies' separate interests and rights."

A hearing is set for June 22 though Allred said they are open to dropping it if Suleman agrees to help appoint a guardian.

Suleman responded to the statements telling "I feel like as though many, many, many, many people in this society are trying to distract me from taking care of my babies. And I'm gonna continue to live in my baby bubble with my kids. And whoever wants a piece of me or the babies, keep on trying. That's all I have to say."
