Nadya ‘Octomom’ Suleman stopped by to promote an upcoming a ‘celebrity boxing’ match in New Jersey–an interview Howard has anticipated for years: “I’m fascinated by you.” Nadya said she was fascinated by Howard as well. Asked if she had ‘no life’, Nadya laughed: “I have too much life!” She added that she’d wanted a smaller family: “Like 6 kids total. Maybe one more.” Nadya said her fertility doctor still has a stockpile of embryos (“There’s still a lot there. Still.”) but she’s not planning another pregnancy: “I live from check to check. I have never been on welfare.” All the product offers she received in the initial rush of publicity proved to be empty: “Within two weeks, everything was rescinded…I started having panic attacks. It’s very hard, emotionally, to go to the grocery store.”
