And another one bites the dust. That's two publicists Whittier's Nadya Suleman has burned through since the birth of her octuplets (in vitro babies #7-14) at the end of January.

First, the Killeen-Furtney group withdrew their pro bono services after receiving a few too many violent threats (over 100) regarding their choice to rep the unconventional single mother on disability. Now publicist Victor Munoz has revealed "he quit as Suleman's rep Friday night," according to The professional ringleader explains why he's leaving the Suleman circus:

"It just got to be too much," he says. "It's pretty much a free for all over there right now. They are freaking out right now. "Not to sound arrogant, but those people depended on me for everything," he continues. "You have no idea what I’ve had to do for these people.

Suleman is under pressure to prove she can provide for her children; the Bellflower hospital where the octuplets are staying may not release them to her, while the home she shares with her parents (and brood) may soon be in foreclosure. No word on if she's interested in adult entertainment company Vivid's offer for her to earn up to $1 million starring in a skin flick.
