Nadya Suleman, a.k.a. “Octo-mom,” had a little victory over her rival reality mom Kate Gosselin. According to Fox, more people were interested in watching the single mother of 14 rather than the soon-to-be divorced mother of 8.

Wednesday night 4.2 million viewers tuned in to watch Suleman’s two-hour special while Monday’s episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 drew only 3 million eyes.  Suleman’s special also proved a winner, topping the charts for the coveted 18-34 year old demographic.

The Gosselins show numbers were down a half million from the week before, and less than a third of the record-setting 10.6 million who viewed the June show when they announced their separation.

Suleman first expressed her disdain for Kate in June calling her “desperate for attention” and “over-emotional.”

“She needs to stop being so judgemental and stop pulling at straws for attention,” she told RadarOnline.com. “My children are extremely healthy, strong and happy. Don’t you have, like, a lot of issues in your life? A lot of marital problems?”

Suleman also slammed Kate for showing off her bikini body after getting  a free tummy tuck. “Why are you so desperate to glob onto my life? For attention?” she added.
