    This makes me ill. How could anyone think that this lady is mentally capable of caring for 14 children? We had a staff member defend her today in the lounge. She stated that her grandmother had 12 children. So did my grandmother. She was married, had older children to help when the younger ones came, lived close to my great grandparents and great aunts and uncles. And she and my grandfather owned a farm where they raised over 80% of their food. This is not a fair comparison. My Grandmother had her head screwed on correctly.

    If you see her picture from when she was pregnant before, and then compare it to a still frame from her interview, there is no denying she's had plastic surgery. So not only is she stupid for bringing in 8 children into this world when she already had 6 at home, she's a liar!!!!!

    And if she's trying to say she's still a virgin...well see above. You can't be married for any length of time and NOT have sex. I don't know too many men that would allow that.

    He certainly sounds like a shady character. Sounds like his procedure doesn't work for most women, but did for her.

    Another disturbing quote from the article:

    I think the wineandexcrement website is satire, like the Onion - I'm not sure she's been interviewed by Diane Sawyer.

    However, I do think she is just plain nuts.

    Well, I guess the media will continuously be following this family around for yrs, so we'll always keep hearing about them. :rolleyes: sigh!

    I think it is a very disturbing situation. I am glad she is getting the help she needs for the sake of the children, but I wish it was possible for the children to be taken care of and for her to get what should have been coming to her. To have that many kids when you have no support system and no job is completely irresponsible, and I wish she would learn her lesson, and be a lesson to other women and to teenaged girls. Unfortunately, life doesn't always give lessons to the people who need it most. :(

    And apparently she had plastic surgery to look like Angelina Jolie? Is that just a rumor?

    I think the media needs to leave her the hell alone. People are threatening her, and I blame it on all the media hype. It's like a bunch of parasites have latched onto her.

    A lady that I assume is the publicist was on larry King the other night. She helped the mom for free because she herself is a mom and a grandma. She quit, though, because of the threats toward her and the mom.

    Well, I am so glad that EVERYONE in the house puts the seat down. I have had a bird fly and land in the toilet (thankfully someone was there to rescue the bird) and also, I know that when you flush, the fesces/urine treated water sprays, what six feet into the air. And, hmmm, what's on the sink, oh just your toothbrush. ICK! Anyhoo, we all put the seats down, and we all put them up when we use them. Yup... that's how it works in our household... :cool:

    My newspaper reported that her mother is 10 months behind on her mortgage and it is now in foreclosure...
