So much for her own reality show with all of the trimmings.
TLC’s president Eileen O'Neil announced on Tuesday that her network had been considering the family for its own show, but not anymore.
That’s no network subsidized home, no vehicles, no vacations, no free tummy tucks, no free anything.
Wise choice, TLC.
It had been reported that Suleman had signed with Nashville-based agent Wes Yoder, owner of the Christian-based Ambassador agency. Ambassador acted as agents for Kenny and Bobbi McCaughey, the parents of sextuplets. Yoder claims to have brokered licensing arrangement for family photos and explored the possibility of signing her as a client, but says his agency has no plans to sign her to a deal.
Wise choice, Yoder.
And today it was revealed that the three-bedroom home in Whittier that houses the Suleman family is ten months behind in mortgage payments. How did Angela Suleman get a mortgage when she has no job apart from taking care of the first six kids and she lives on some sort of retirement income? The house in Whittier has a $450K mortgage! I’d say that the value of that house is quite underwater, filthy interior notwithstanding.
And of course “media outlet” TMZ has photos of the bipedal superuterus out shopping again today at a MAC makeup counter.
So if some crazy network ever chose to feature this family on a reality show, would you tune in? I have never sat through more than 30 seconds of "Jon and Kate," or the Duggars, or even the McCaugheys back in the day. The answer for me is no.

TLC not interested in Nadya Suleman—thanks much
