Octo Mom Hits the Internets

Lest you forget, it all comes down to L-O-V-E. But some money wouldn't hurt, either

It was bound to happen: Whittier's "Octo Mom" Nadya Suleman has her own website.

Set up by her PR team, the Killeen Furtney Group, the site is using photos culled from Suleman's Today Show interview, and seems to be focused mostly on brokering donations of money or items to help out the single mom of 14. Suleman, who has been supported financially via her parents, student loans, disability payments, and food stamps, is hopeful that people will donate money and goods to help her care for her large family, and is eager to use the media to tell her story.

Although the site offers the option to "leave a comment or well wishes for Nadya and her family" the guest book is not viewable; a prudent choice, since Suleman, and her Beverly Hills-based in vitro fertilization doctor, have come under much scrutiny following the January 26th birth of her 7-14th children.

Suleman's website isn't the first time the internet has been a place to profess your allegiance when it comes to "Octo Mom," though.
