Scott Says: Octomom, What Are You Thinking Taking 12 Kids on a Plane From NY To LA…Without Help?!

Mon, July 11, 2011 5:13pm EDT by 5 Comments

Octomom’s behavior on a cross-country flight shows just how inconsiderate of others she really is!

It’s a story we all know too well. A flight is delayed and passengers are stuck on the plane for hours. Eventually, there’s a baby on board that is none too pleased to be kept waiting. The baby starts crying and the rest of the plane starts squirming. The baby’s parents are mortified, most passengers can sympathize with the parents, but at this point in time they would rather drop the baby out of the air hatch than listen to it cry for one more minute, and all the flight crew can do is offer the infant club soda and peanuts. So what happens when you’re on said two-hour delayed plane with Nadya Suleman and her 12 noisy children, eight of them 2-year-olds?

Well, just ask 3rd Rock From the Sun star Kristen Johnston who happened to be on a July 8 flight from New York to California with Octomom and 12 of her 14 kids.

TMZ.com reports Kirsten marched over toNadya and told her to keep the volume down. Nadya responded, “How would you like me to keep eight 2-year-olds quiet?” To which Kristen said, “Get more help!” Nadya then gave Kristen the ultimate dig (in her head, I’m assuming), she shouted at her: “Why don’t you grow a baby and get a life!”

Huh?! Perhaps this is Nadya‘s problem. Is it actually possible that she equates having children with having a life? Because I would argue that Oprah Winfrey (who does not have children) has a slight edge on Nadya in the “having a life” department.

But, that’s neither here nor there. My real issue is that Nadya had the audacity to bring 12 children on a commercial airplane and plop them in the middle of business class amongst innocent people. There’s no question that Nadya is free to do whatever she wants and conduct her life however she feels is appropriate, however, this seems like a basic courtesy.

If I was Nadya and the Today show asked me to schlep my 14 children from California I can imagine myself saying, “You guys are joking right? I think you guys forgot I have 14 CHILDREN!! How the hell do you expect me to get them across the country?! It would take about six hours at the security checkpoint alone!! If you guys wanted to pay for a private plane so that my 14 CHILDREN can run amok without disrupting the flights of innocent people that didn’t ask me to have 14 children and probably would have punched me square in the face if I told them I was even thinking about it, then be my guest. But otherwise, I think it would be a lot more effective for you guys to send five people over here with cameras and microphones and we can conduct the interview from the comfort of my own home.”

But, Nadya didn’t say that.

Nadya seems to have an air about her that says, “YOU try raising 14 children and tell me how it goes.” The thing is Nadya, I didn’t have 14 children. I’m a rational human being, so I know I wouldn’t be able to handle octuplets. Truth be told, I wouldn’t be able to handle one child. I don’t care for small children. My tolerance level for children is about one hour of Toddlers & Tiaras, which has commercial breaks.

Does that mean I think the people of the world should stop reproducing?! No. Do I think children should be kept from the public until they’re 18?! That’s for another column…

But, Nadya, you must know that there will be many things you want to do in life that your 14 children will prohibit you from doing. I’d assume sleeping is one of them. At some point you’re going to have to make compromises and think of the impact of your actions on others before you make these decisions.

The next time you need to travel from California to New York, might I suggest a road trip? Rent a van, take a few weeks off (I’m sure Celebrity Boxing can do without you for a little), and drive across the USA! You’ll be miserable! You’ll hate it! But, at least nobody else will suffer.

Maybe the eighth baby realized the circus it was living in and ran away :-) Would be the smartest of the bunch.

Nadya was invited for a morning show appearance w/ how many of her kids? The station should have provided her w/ childcare to help her get from A to B. It’s difficult to keep two children content on a long flight. At least Nadya was able to have a mini-vacation albeit w/ the kids. Old news, leave the girl alone, she has more problems than most.

I’ve been on a long plane trip with ONE crying baby and it was awful – I can only imagine what it would be like multiplied by eight. And I do love kids, but non-stop wailing hour after hour is unbearable.
Nadya acts as if she just “happened” to have 14 children through no fault of her own and other people should make allowances for her, as they would for anyone who finds themself in a difficult situation because of bad luck.
It wasn’t luck, Nadya – you made the conscious decision to be implanted with 12 embryos when you already had six small children you couldn’t support or care for.
