Despite Bankruptcy, Octo-Mom Is Paying $500 A Year For Gym Membership

Filed under: Legal MattersOcto-MomGym Time

Octo-Mom gym membership

It looks like someone didn't pay attention in elementary school when they learned about the difference between a need and a want.

Octo-Mom filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on Monday, which is the most serious form of bankruptcy and basically means she is flat broke. The same day, however, she was seen strolling to the Total Woman Gym & Day Spa — a membership that costs her over $500 a year!

Listen, we understand the importance of working out, but not at the expense of your children's well being! Even with a monthly check for $2,000 from the the state of California, Nadya Suleman is about to lose the house that she and her 14 kids call home.

Exercise is essential for a healthy life, but there is no need to spend money you don't have on a fancy gym.

Go for a run outside, do push-ups in your living room or crunches on the floor. Whatever you do, don't spend your next mortgage payment on a gym membership!

Octo-Mom may not have a home next week, but at least her gym has a daycare center. They keep kids overnight, right?

Debbie Gibson got her plate full nowadays!

Lame! Michigan $2 Million Lottery Winner STILL Using Food Stamps

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueSad Sad

Leroy Fick evil laugh

What a SLAP in the face to the poor!

Leroy Fick of Auburn, Michigan won a $2 million lottery prize 11 months ago, but still uses food stamps to pay for groceries.

Michigan senator Rick Jones is not happy about it either, saying:

"For Leroy Fick to continue to use a Bridge Card, paid for by the taxpayers, after winning the lottery, is obscene. What a waste of taxpayer money."

Unfortunately, there is nothing he can do about it! Leroy's blatant abuse of the social welfare program is completely legal.

Food stamp eligibility is based on gross income, but excludes liquid assets. Take a lucky guess what lottery winnings are considered?

As long as Fick's gross income stays below the eligibility requirement for food stamps, he can continue to abuse them as he sees fit.

Sounds like the biggest problem here, besides Leroy Fick (doesn't that just sound like a bad guy's name in a movie?), is the federal government's requirements for obtaining food stamps.

Fortunately, Sen. Jones is taking action, explaining:

"The department is asking the federal government for an immediate change (in policy). They're hoping this case will help the federal government act."

As for now, we think this Fick guy needs a visit from the ghost's of the lottery's past, present, and future!

There is already SO MUCH wasteful spending in the government, why continue to be a part of the problem when he could EASILY be a part of the solution.

Do U think this guy's greed is totally bogus or is it okay because it's legal?

Octo-Mom Forced To Go On Welfare!

Filed under: Octo-Mom

octomomhelpwenn.jpg

Yikes!!

Things are going from bad to worse for Octo-Mom Nadya Suleman!

Since the media frenzy over her and her 14 children has died down, no one's knocking at her door anymore. TV appearances and book deals have fallen through as well as her much hyped reality show, which has left her in "financial ruins."

A source says:

"Nadya is running out of money very quickly. She's still hoping to pull off a deal that will pay her a fortune but at this point it just doesn't seem possible. Nadya has nannies and huge expenses raising 14 children. She needs a lot of money just to keep up with the basics. And now the income has dried up and she didn't make enough in the past year and a half to live off of it. Nadya will never come out publicly and say she's going on welfare but everyone close to her and familiar with her situation knows that it's going to happen very, very soon. She needs the money. She has no choice at this point. She's going on welfare and it's going to be very soon. There's just no choice. She's running out of money and those kids need to eat."

Those poor kids! We don't want to see any of them separated from their momma!

David Beckham's Sister Collecting Welfare!

Filed under: David Beckham

wenn2908738db.jpg

That doesn't sound good!

David Beckham's older sister Lynne is surviving on benefits of £164 a week, which is less than Becks makes every two seconds!

Lynne, who is going through a bitter divorce, lives in a house in Essex that David bought for her with a man she met on Facebook a few weeks ago!

A source close to the Beckhams says that Lynne isn't working at the moment, but David takes care of her.

So why is she milking the government?

Sounds fishy to us!
