Octo-Mom has been under fire since she admitted that went on government assistance to help feed her 14 children.
The state offers $2,000 a month to large families who earn less than $119,000 a year, which is something she now defends.
Nadya Suleman says:
"I made that call reluctantly. I needed to remove my pride, it was fear. I was terrified and I received thousands and thousands of death threats. I still am [working] as hard as I can to support them.
In my mind I was doing well with the six and it's three books in itself to rationalize why I wanted one more after six. But who cares how I feel – it's about my children. They deserve the best. My family is my priority."
Her family should have been her priority before she decided to have more children. We're just sayin'.
