It ain't easy being Octomom.Nadya Suleman's manager says she had to endure constant harassment from the cabin crew on a Virgin America flight from LAX to NYC. She was forced to change seats, she never got the drink she asked for on the long flight and at one point a flight attendant kicked out of the bathroom for no reason whatsoever, her manager Gina Rodriguez told TMZ.

To boot, she says she could hear them laughing at her, and at one point she confronted the crew for being so rude. She's filed a customer complaint, but Virgin America didn't respond to TMZ.

"I was shocked to say the least how poorly they treated me on the plane. I would never book a flight on Virgin America again," she says.
