Octomom Nadya Suleman Says She'd Do Anything to Pay the Bills -- Even Porn. Awful or Admirable?

Nadya Suleman (left, fighting adult film star Amy Fisher during the With her home in foreclosure and plenty of bills to pay, Nadya Suleman -- better known as Octomom -- is saying that she'll consider doing what she once swore she'd never do: pornography.

"I don't even give a crap if people think I'm a hypocrite," the 36-year-old mother of 14 -- including a set of octuplets -- tells CNN's "Showbiz Tonight." "If the opportunity comes up, I'm going to eat my words. Because all that matters is that I take care of my family."



On Friday, Suleman filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, listing assets of about $50,000 and debts of about $1 million. Her home is due to be auctioned out from under her on May 7. Desperate to pay the bills -- she gets about $2,000 a month from the state of California, but that money can only be used to buy food -- in March Suleman posed nearly nude for the European magazine "Closer" for about $8,000. The photos immediately went viral -- something that Suleman says took her by surprise, in spite of the fact that she knowingly posed for the publication.

"I'm being honest, I did it for money," she told Anderson Cooper. "I have to do what I have to do to take care of my family."

Since the photos appeared in a women's magazine, rather than a men's magazine, Suleman says that the nearly nude photos aren't hypersexualized or exploitative, which makes them OK. But, told the "Today" show just a few weeks ago, she that she would never do pornography, not even if offered "100 million dollars." (Adult film producer Steve Hirsch reportedly offered her $1 million to star in one of his films back in 2009.)

"I won't touch other human flesh," she told Matt Lauer. ""The only flesh I'm touching [in the nude photos] is my own. I would never, never accept anything. I will not lose my grip of my deeply indoctrinated morals and values."

That was less than a month ago. Now, when "Showbiz Tonight" host Nischelle Turner asked Suleman point-blank about doing porn, Suleman answered: "If it's a job, and it's a well-paying job that will allow me to get us out of here into a very safe, huge home that they deserve, I'm going to do it."

What do you think? Awful or admirable?
