First Angela Suleman said her daughter Nadya was "obsessed" with having kids and that she wouldn't be around to help her when her octuplets came home, then they seemed to have kissed and made up. But now TMZ is reporting that Mrs. Suleman hasn't been paying the mortgage during the months of her only daughter's most recent pregnancy. In fact, the gossip site explains: "According to documents filed earlier this month, OctoGrandma (who owns the house) hasn't made any payments on her home since May, 2008 -- she's behind $23,224.98."The mortgage company says the notice is "still active," which means the home could wind up on the auction block. Now 33-year-old grad student and single mom of 14 Nadya might be without a home, and her prospects for landing the $2 million deal she set her sights on shortly after giving birth last month might be fewer than she thought.

Suleman's original pro bono LA-based management Killeen Furtney dropped the now-infamous Whittier woman as a client after they received death threats, and the Tennessee-based firm rumored to have picked her up are now denying they represent her. Those who think Suleman had hopes for a TLC network show along the lines of the very popular Jon and Kate Plus 8 can also think again--the channel is not interested in the starring the Suleman family on their airwaves. But at least Suleman can rely on the cold hard cash kindness of strangers, right? That might be tough, since the website Killeen Furtney launched to handle donations has disappeared.

Maybe Nadya's not so worried. After all, she thinks money is just "paper."
