Dr. Phil comes face-to-face x8 with Octomom

The world's most popular babies make their debut to the public today on Dr. Phil, as mother-of-the-moment Nadya Suleman (a.k.a. Octomom) introduced her brood to the show's host, Phil McGraw. In the episode, Suleman gives Phil a tour of the hospital and discusses what's in store for the octuplets.

"They will only send two home, and then a few days later, another two," Suleman says of taking her kids home. "They're not medically fragile, it's extraordinary how remarkable they're doing."

The little whippersnappers have been a bonus for Dr. Phil, which has seen its ratings bloat as a result of interviews and exclusives with Suleman.

Dr. Phil airs today at 3 p.m. Check local listings for channel.

There is no doubt that I would like to see the Kids get more help and attention..since they are already here!! However, I disagree with Dr.Phil's decision to showcase the Mother every moment his Show is on! It is giving her a Celebrity status that she really doesn't need at this point in time!

I give Dr. Phil credit for getting her to face some hard realities but at the same time, she's just playing on his sympathy strings. I'm sure she does have a cushy book deal in place as well as some other opportunities to sell photos of the kids, but she's never going to be equipped to raise 14 kids on her own. She's never going to have a steady job to support her kids and will be content living off welfare for the rest of her life. While I'm not an advocate of foster care, I do feel that in her case, some of those kids should be taken away from her. Yes, she has a nice 4 bedroom house but it's still not big enough for 15 people. She needs to face reality and just admit that she can't take care of 14 kids on her own.

All of the kids should be taken away from her, until she can get a real job and not live on welfare and make the American people pay for her stupidity
