Hide the kids: Octomom, Nadya Suleman, who recently admitted to Oprah that she may have a ‘baby addiction’ is now allegedly shopping a fetish sex video – shot inside her L.A. Home – in which she whips a diaper wearing masochist until he develops welts on his back. This, of course, so she can feed her 14 kids and fend off said home’s foreclosure… Is it just me, or does this sound uncannily like the plotline of what should be the quintessential American Tragedy?
In any case, as TMZ reported: The video shows Nadya Suleman, dressed in a black corset, black leggings and her body is kinda smokin’. (If you couldn’t already tell from their candid ‘stretchy Octomom’ pics.)
If only we’d known this during her Oprah appearance when, as noted by the AP, financial planning superstar [Suze] Orman urged Suleman to get an agent and look into doing more television and other media with her children as she did in the months after they were born, something Suleman said she would no longer do for fears that she would be perceived as crazy or was exploiting her children.
Which makes a crazy kind of sense, considering that now she’s exploiting the idea of ‘Octomom,’ as a character, exploiting her children: one of the media’s deepest and most sadistically compelling tabloid fantasies. Especially considering that, as Orman told Suleman of the public at large, They already think you’re crazy.
In truth we don’t think Suleman is crazy, but in fact precisely the opposite. By taking Orman’s advice in seeking to keep her home and her sanity (foreclosure, in some schools of psychoanalysis is also the process by which one descends into psychosis) and appearing in this video she’s managed to avoid eviction and holding onto her 14 children. Whether she’s held on to her self respect is of course another question, but such a consideration may really just be moot at this juncture.
Suleman has, I suggest, furthermore taken upon herself the task of fully confronting the theatrical absurdity of the public’s own Octomom fantasy so as traverse it – to demonstrate that it is only but an illusion with nothing behind it. But then again, aren’t illusions what make Hollywood go round and keep Octomom off the streets this spring?
If only we could all beat the crap out of men wearing diapers whilst dressed in Hollywood attire, we’d all be warm this winter…
