    Yeah, I just read that myself. The Octo-mom and her 14 kiddos could be forced out.

    *shrugs* Maybe there's a certain time that has to go by, by law, in order for them to finally did what they did.

    Once when we were two months behind (when DH got laid off of work), at the beginning of the second month we received a notice they were about to foreclose....2 months is a FAR cry from 10 months. And if there is a law that states that, I doubt it would 10 months. That's just too long.

    Then maybe it has to do with the media hype and outcrys over this. Who knows.

    But she hasn't been in the media for 10 months. They've only been in the media for a month or two.


    Oh, and btw, we are caught up now. ;)

    Guess so.

    Well, I have to admit. It makes me wonder where her and her 14 kids will be living if the house if foreclosed.

    Maybe she should move to Utah, find a single mormon man, consent to having other wives (and hands) help raise her children and live in some house that is truly "equipped" to handle 14 or more kids. :lol:

    Yeah, I guess that could work too. I forgot Mormoms inhabited other areas too thought most are concentrated in Utah.

    By the way, they're getting ready to talk about the foreclosure on the Octo-mom.

    The mom is $23,000 behind and the house will most likely go on the auction block in May.

    What do you do when you've just had 8 kids, making your total 16, have no job or income, and are facing foreclosure on your current home?

    Buy a $1.2 million house!!!!!!!!!

    This woman needs to be admitted to a mental facility.

    If their other house, that is worth less is undergoing forecloser, then what makes her think that they can afford this other house! :unsure::eek::huh:

    No. She just has to marry the mormon man that'll buy her the house. :lol:

    Well, it sounds like her mother owns the other one. Maybe she got a large amount of money for her interviews. People don't seem to think things through very well when they get large amounts of money. She probably thinks that she has a down payment now, and hasn't thought about keeping up on the payments or property tax. She doesn't seem to be in touch with reality, so she probably thinks the payment money will just 'appear'.

    Actually, my first thought wasn't the price of the house, but rather, "why is she looking at a 4 bedroom house with 14 children to house?"

    I thought that, too, mmswm!!! That's still 4 people to a room, almost!

    Seems like she needs at least 6 bedrooms. She could put 3 to a room, so that's 5 bedrooms for the kids (one room would only have two), and then one for herself.

    Wait...or she could do what my Aunt did....her husband had a ton of kids from his previous marraige, so by the time they put all the grandkids together, there's around 25 kids, and they lived in the mountains with hundreds of acres, so all the kids liked to come visit with their kids. Anyway, to solve the bedroom space issue, they built their house with two "bunk rooms". Each room had two rows of 5 o bunk beds and could sleep 20 people per room. There was one for the boys and one for the girls. It worked for them.....

    That sounds like a plan, mm!

    I honestly don't know what she's thinking. Even if she did get money for the interviews, that won't sustain 15 people for very long.

    That's very true. Most people do frivolous things with their large amount of money. They spend unwisely and don't invest like they should. Before you know it, it's gone.

    I have the news on right now, and they said she is looking at a $1.4 million house in CA. Centruy 21 has confirmed it (just reporting the facts, ma'am...don't shoot the messenger). Supposedly, she is counting on over two million dollars in interview money and a possible book deal. The realtor was showing her the house that she is "an interested buyer" because she has "good faith" money coming.

    Hmmm........

    Hum, guess I'll have to stay tuned for the next installment of "What Will That Outrageous Octo-Mom Do Next?"

    Gosh, this is a real-life soap opera playing out. :lol:

    Well, I just heard that the mom's father said that he thinks that his daughter and her doctor should be handled for their actions. He also stated that he thinks his daughter has mental problems, but his grandchildren should not have to suffer for her problems.

    Given the current economic freefall, one would hope that a bank would hesitate to give her a mortgage, knowing that KEEPING the house will be an issue for this woman.

    I wish her the best. Regardless of how incredibly stupid she seems to be, she's the mom of 14 kids. Parenting 3 can max me out; I can't begin to imagine how she'll do with her family, and alone nonetheless.

    I cannot believe people would give her money. This whole situation continues to make me sick.
