Madoff AND HIS FAMILY should be made to provide financial restitution to every last victim. Madoff and his family have financially slaughtered thousands of people with premeditation. The equivalent of the death penalty is called for in this situation. White collar crime shall not be tolerated as it once was.

Michael C. McHugh   March 12th, 2009 6:56 pm ET

Once again, I think Madoff should spend the rest of his life sharing a cell with a heavily tattooed biker named Big Bubba.

Doris Steppe   March 12th, 2009 6:56 pm ET

A guest you had this week said that women on juries tend to blame the victim in rape cases. I believe the reason for that is that other women want to feel safe from such violence themselves. They think "That will not happen to ME (I am safe) because the way I behave protects me, and if SHE had behaved well she would not have been attacked." Of course it is NOT TRUE; it's a delusion! Domestic violence can happen to any woman; that is the reality that we need to publicize. There is NOTHING a woman can do that excuses violent behavior.

Janet Turvey   March 12th, 2009 7:00 pm ET

I would like to know if Bernard Madoff's wife is going to have to sell her luxury homes or was he pleading guilty as part of plea deal? Ms. Madoff should have to sell because the average person would lose their home or homes. She must have known what was going on.

As for Rhianna and Chris Brown, I am sick of hearing about it, if Rhianna wants to be with a man who uses her as a punching bag then so be it.

As for Octomom, Enough already geez leave the woman alone and let her in peace and quiet so she can consentrate on those babies rather than doing interviews.

As for Madoff, let the bum rot in Jail for the rest of his life and all of his assets and properties should be sold to pay his 'POOR' Clients..!

Gary Chandler in Canada   March 12th, 2009 7:18 pm ET

Hate to butt in on a Topic, but NOT one report has clarified if the 'billions' of losses with Madoff refers to the 'paper' amount or the actuall 'millions' that were handed over.
I mean, if someone invested $500,000 and BM told them it had grown to $4,000,000, they only lost 1/2 a million, right!? [though $4,000,000 makes for a better news headline]

Nathan   March 12th, 2009 7:25 pm ET

While I do not like the way Ms. Suleman has represented herself in the press, I honestly want her to succeed as a parent - for the sake of her children.

Lily Ibeh   March 12th, 2009 8:05 pm ET

Dear Larry King,

Why do people make someone who is a victim of domestic violence feel like they did something wrong by leaving the cycle ?.
I am a survivor for more than 8 years and for some reason from places I have worked to people who are friends of the abuser blame you for refusing to continue to be a victim.Even someone whose job is to help victims suggest s that I can get back for economic reasons,I cannot compromise my life and peace for comfort anymore.

I had sent you an earlier e mail about me on Monday,I was also interviewed about my struggles in having to survive this economic downturn after losing my Job recently and still looking going to Job fairs and so on .(check WUSA9NEWSNOW)in Virginia.
We should be treated fairly because of the pain and shame we had endured. I do not have to be a celebrity for my voice on social conscience to be heard.

Thank you .

Maria   March 12th, 2009 8:08 pm ET

Octomom NEEDS all the help she can get for those kids. I'm glad people are paying attention and stepping in.

Jamie   March 12th, 2009 8:21 pm ET

I hope octomom's children aren't held to a different standard just because of who their mother is. That would be a shame to make them pay for a mother who obviously has some issues. the whole world will be watching and waiting for one of her kids to mess up and then you'll see 4 days of TV experts talking about it. Not fair to put that burden on children.

Theresa   March 12th, 2009 8:33 pm ET

Call me silly, but I think it's octomom's kids that need all the help they can get to protect them from her.... what a whack-job. My fear is that once the novelty and commitments of external support wear off, especially as the recession wears on, she'll be the sole 'adult' in the household. She can't manage her own day-to-day issues, so how will she manage those of 14 children?

Mandi   March 12th, 2009 8:48 pm ET

I am wondering if anyone from your show was going to notify Bill Clinton that an embryo is fertilized. In other words an embryo is a human life in its earliest stage! I hate to think that he is going to continue being interviewed on this subject when he doesn't have all the correct information. It is almost as if he wants to mislead the American people. Hmm, imagine that?

Gail Barr   March 12th, 2009 8:49 pm ET

Concerning the way President Obama is handling the economy.
It seems we have a multitude of arm chair Presidents that absolutely know without a doubt that whatever President Obama does will definately not work. However, they don't have a solution... It seems to me that instead of whining and complaining about everything the President tries to do, they would at least give him a chance to try his plan. At least he isn't as the previous administration telling us to stay the course and it will soon trickel down. Eight years later from the middle class down the trickel never reached us. Get behind and help push or come up with a better plan!!!

gabriel   March 12th, 2009 8:58 pm ET

[madoff] why did the sec investigate when the sons came forward when they didn"t when markopolos came forward.

benjamin economico   March 12th, 2009 8:59 pm ET

just want to say hello larry i'm a disabled cop from yonkers ny .you are my favorite person

Alison   March 12th, 2009 9:09 pm ET

Is Madoff paying his attorneys, shouldn't he have a public defender, since he has no money of his own???

Linda   March 12th, 2009 9:10 pm ET

DOG (Madoff),SWINE, He needs to stay in jail for the rest of his life. Next his wife she knew what was going on, how do you accumalte 60 million dollars not doing anything. I hope they take everything they have from them, and the wife should get jail time too. If the kids were involved they should be punished. Hopefully people can can something back but its looking like they won't. I am sorry to hear so many people lost out, even Larry King.

chris   March 12th, 2009 9:10 pm ET

Please ask the group who will be caring for the octuplets if the nurses are volunteers or if they will be paid; if they are to be paid, does the group currently have money to pay them for the six months they have agreed to; is it true that this group has billed Medicaid in the past for nursing services; do they plan to bill Medicaid for the care of the octuplets? Dr. Phil said the group would be taking care of the newborns at NO cost to taxpayers.

T.E   March 12th, 2009 9:10 pm ET

The SEC was warned about this man and people knew he was corrupt. The SEC should not have turned their heads either. I would hold some of these people responsible too.

Mike, Zephyrhills, FL   March 12th, 2009 9:14 pm ET

Madoff, or Made off!!

.Larry , I understand you lost money with this guy too, it is just sad for all those who did think this guy had the answers. Many guys who were shorting stocks on inside info did make these kind of returns.

So it is possible and has been done, but limited to a few guys who work the system and leak info, rumors, and help each other.

This is also unfair in American Stock Markets but its been going on now for a 100 yrs.

So it teachs all of us , that Greed is what Greed does and becomes!

Andrea   March 12th, 2009 9:14 pm ET

Enough is Enough. This is overkill. Everyone has a comment – Oprah, Robin Givens, Ellen, Steve Harvey. Only people who have experienced domestic violence should speak...and we don't have the full story...just judgement. "He who is without sin...cast the first stone".
Where was everyone with R. Kelly. Everyone talked about Britney-and then we found out she was bipolar. Why don't Oprah and Tyra join forces and discuss why women stay with men who cheat on them? There is to many things going on in the world for CNN, on every news show, to be talking about Rihanna and Chris Brown. Enough is Enough!

Mike, Zephyrhills, FL   March 12th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

Dr Phil is a guy who goes out and takes advantage of anyone and anything to score his own personal benefit and the Knight on the Horse Riding in to save the day!!

Janice Connett   March 12th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

Get a CLUE: MADOFF= Made Off with their money.
Now is the time that the veils are coming down and the vermin under the rocks are being exposed. If we all demand that laws be changed so that people like this will be held accountable...with no special privileges no matter how much money or "power" they have, and put them immediately IN any other citizen would have been...and not be under "penthouse arrest", we may start turning the tables and putting the fear of God into those that are greedy and feel they are above the law.

Demetri Papacostas   March 12th, 2009 9:20 pm ET

Is that Jenene Pirro hosting your show about Madoff? Unbelievable! She is asking if Ruth Madoff knew? She claimed she did not know about her husband and the Mafia. Please. We finally got her out of the District attorneys office now get her off out TV.

angela   March 12th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

I am so sick of hearing about Rihittme. Both of these people are spoiled brats, thumbing their noses at all the experts, not listening to anyone. They are so immature and disrespectful they can not even make a statement. Personally I WILL NOT FEEL SORRY FOR HER, WHATS SAD IS SHE HAS A WAY OUT AND OTHERS DONT , WHO WANT OUT. ANOTHER CULTURAL THING LIKE DOG FIGHTING? IS THAT IT?

T.E   March 12th, 2009 9:26 pm ET

We have had enough of this about the Octomom. This whole thing makes me ill. No woman who has more over three children should be allowed to collect welfare. Using children just to get money is sick. Not unless they have a proven record of being responsible before they fall into bad times and are taking courses to better their own lives. If you can take care of them, have a husband and have the money to send them to college, it is fine if that is your choice but she could not.

Linda   March 12th, 2009 9:27 pm ET

Thats why I don't look at Oprah or Dr Phil they are both opportunist, they are milking this Chris Brown/Rihanna thing for the ratings, I am sick of them, and don't let me go on about Robin Givens, althought I do like Ellen. They are going to do whatever they want to do and their is nothing that we say thats going to change that. Just look they have already gotten back together, so leave it alone, let them handle their business.
Women are being abused evey single day NOW Oprah wants to talk about it, Please.

hal robinson   March 12th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

I take issue with the "it's-too-good-to-be-true" axiom for those who invested with Madoff. Funds in the '90's produced returns of 20, 30 and 40%, as well as in the early part of this century. Do I consider those people greedy? No. I say good for them! So why begrudge those who were interested in hitting singles, not homeruns?

Janet   March 12th, 2009 9:32 pm ET

I think people should mind their business and let Rhianna and Chris Brown be!!!! Let it go already and let their live their lives!!!!. People "media" need to stop forcing this issue on Rhianna to leave Chris! The one thing people should know when someone is madly in love with someone is that they are going to follow their heart not the people that she doesn't know "media".You keep forcing it down her throat the more she is not going to listen to anyone. Let her do what she wants.

Chris H.   March 12th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

Your comments suggest Chris Brown can not ever have another woman to date. If Rihanna was beaten, wouldn't the next girl. Where does it end? Should he ever have a girlfriend again?

Frankie in the OC   March 12th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

I just want to know as the Madoff Company traded stocks, where did the traders actually call? Where did they confirm the trade? Where did they actually dial to complete the trade sell or buy?? As accounts transferred into the company from possible outside trading accounts, what happened to those assets?

Come on, this was a whole family doing this. Completing reports and statements. Sorry Bernie, you do not look like you were the most computer savvy guy to run and auto populate spread sheets, ROI, and investment loss statements!!

Uso   March 12th, 2009 9:35 pm ET

Chris/Rhiana probably don't care about what America thinks as he beat her and she went back for more. So if they dont care why should we? If she left the situation she would have my full support but she is partying it up with him making records its ridiculous. Why do we care?

They both should lose all endorsements and no one should support their concerts or records. Period. For all we know they're probably both sitting at home laughing at us making such a big deal over them.

Elena   March 12th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

Rihanna and Chris-

How come no one is following up on the woman, Tina Davis, a 40 yr old, that started this mess by texting Chris.??????

What's the scoop.!

Ram   March 12th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Fame, finance. foolish and may be fear. That's why Rihanna is back with Chris.

Elena   March 12th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

How come Chase Manhattan Bank, didn't pick up this suspicious activity?

Chris H.   March 12th, 2009 9:40 pm ET

Octomom is a disgrace to a civilized society.

josh   March 12th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

i heard that she started the physical aspect of that fight. if she did then she is not a victim. there is just as much domestic abuse against men as there is against women. however there is no funding or anything for men. why it is socially acceptable for women to hit men. you see it all the time on tv, people laugh when a women throws a lamp or throws a pan at a man. however if the roles are reversed it abuse. both of the individuals sound like they are perfect for each other.

Elena   March 12th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

On the economy, why hasn't anyone thought of fining the executives of the Corporations that took Tarp money, bought jets, invested other peoples money, etc, lets just fine them for the amount of bonuses received plus 30% penalty. They can put it back into the taxpayers account.

Kayla   March 12th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

Gloria said that if the public donated money they wouldn't have to go on medicaid, but it isn't the public's job or the taxpayer's job to take care of donating money. If she already has 6 children and no job the children should be given up for adoption to people who do want to provide for their children and not be irresponsible!

David Y   March 12th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

Now is an opportunity for both abused women and the men that abuse them to seek help. Rhianna needs the support to help her understand NO ONE should be beaten for being in an arguement, PERIOD. It is the law for good reason.

Chris and other abusers needs help as well for they just can't be left to go on without some support to change. It is not a coward that seeks help but a man who wants to love a family and care for others – to fulfill their lives. Society needs to change the abusers as well.

Hopefully we can all support those involved in domestic violence and not just try and sweep it under a rug or deny it exists.

Stephanie   March 12th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

OMG!!! Enough is Enough!!! Charges were filed and she took him back!! That is her choice!!! This is alot of the problem with the world, people are too busy staying in the middle of other people's personal business!!!! They are both at fault.....Neither one are role models....they both drink underage, use profanity, etc. etc.....I am 34 and I like both of their music and Chris' movies....Quit trying to ruin their careers and let them make their own choices!!! Quit judging the both of them and move on to real news and not Entertainer Invasion!!!

Patrice Palmer   March 12th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

1 – It's really too bad that people don't exercise better judgement in whom they choose as a role model. Famous doesn't mean smart or ethical.
2- I find it horrifying that so many believe Rihanna "asked for it." Unless she physically took Chris Brown's hands and hit herself, there is no way she's responsible.

When are people going to hold others, especially abusive men, responsible for their own actions? The "perfect little angel" who can do no wrong is a fallacy. Mothers and fathers should make their children take responsibility for their own actions. Nobody "makes" anybody do anything.

As I say to my students – you are the person in control of your own actions. Keep your hands and feet to yourself. Purposefully throwing or kicking something at someone else to hurt them is the same as if you used your hands or feet. Rihanna did NOT make Chris Brown do anything. He is absolutely responsible for what he did! Pushing the responsibility onto the victim is what is fuels the high rates of domestic abuse and violence in our society.

Patricia in Edmonton, Canada   March 12th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

Good evening,
My comment is for Linda commenting at 9:27pm ET...I think that Oprah is simply taking advantage of what is known as ideal timing. So many issues we have heard of over and over with little impact...they are brought up and heard but so often it makes no impact. To address this on the level of celebrity is necessary because there are so many people who still think of their favorite performer as the be all and end all of what they consider as valid and acceptable. Rhianna just going back is just modelling for so many young gals to tolerate that behavior.
I have had to leave a marriage because of an abusive spouse. The first return is just feels so full of passion...sort of like going through a dangerous territory together, and so often the deep issues remain buried in shallow solutions to this issue... Eventually ,as time wears Rhianna will find that after her well being, her esteem and worth and her resiliancy goes, she'll eventually is recognise it for what it is...violence and abusiveness and no one should have to tolerate it. It is only a story line of a sad movie....not for real life.

chad   March 12th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

Wow, I just can't seem to figure out why this has turned into a 26 billion dollar industry?

Amy Jones   March 12th, 2009 9:45 pm ET

As an abuse survivor, it's hard to beleive so many people don't understand; in an age where myself and so many others have come out and spoken so many times, it's amazing to me that the cycle continues so viciously. Maybe it always will.
At any rate, I believe that the reason so many young people feel Rhianna is responsible is, for the boys – self explanatory, and for the girls – looking for approval from the boys. So many many women looking for the approval from men – we are considered weak when we have the courage to deal with our feelings, and we are considered tough and strong when we are actually wimpy enough to take abuse.

Men also think they are being tough and strong to not show feelings – but when you come down to it, feelings is all that drives this stuff. Inability to deal with intense feelings, so they beat and they kill, showing their feelings loud and clear. But for some reason we never want to acknowledge that simple truth – we'd rather John Wayne it and make it somehow a badge of cool tough. The bottom line is they're NOT showing any courage or strength. I know, I've been there. But I guess it just goes on....

marilyn   March 12th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

I don't understand why angels in waiting are helping her.
You should make her pay for their services because after this is all over with, she will be a millionaire.

Another thing I have a 2 disabled children and I do it all by myself everyday. No one helps me.

mrs darcy   March 12th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

As much as i like the idea of the "ANGELS", give $ to them, i can hardly feed myself much less give her any money. She needs to get in the real world!

Mr. Made-off with the money is a scourge to the U.S.A. He must know where the money went. I am so upset for the people he robbed. Thankfully, I am not one of them.

Sherry   March 12th, 2009 9:48 pm ET

Leave this Mom alone. Let her recover and bond with HER precious babies.

Joyce   March 12th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

The children need help send the Mother off somewhere no one in their right mind would bring children into this world under these circumstance. She is seeking $$ and does not care about the children. Who paid for the lip job...we did think about it

Jo Ann   March 12th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

How dare you use this show to ask for donations for Angels in Waiting? Octomom got herself into this mess. I wouldn't give a penny to get her out of it. There are far more deserving charities out there that help the needy – not the greedy.

Elena   March 12th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

Has anyone thought of the families that have had 18 brothers and sisters back in the south, around 1930's and 40's? These folks didn't have birthcontrol, it was common at one time to have a big family...........
So, now what's the buzz about `14??????

If a reporter could find people that have more than 8 kids, it is common in the South, check it out.........geez stop giving this octopus mom all this publicity, she laid in her bed and she has to make it.....................

Vickie Stevenson   March 12th, 2009 9:49 pm ET


Annamarie   March 12th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

Everyone thinks she shouldn't have had 8 babies, but fact of the matter is they are here and I don't think that the babies should be taken away from their mother unless there truely is a harmful place for the children and the mom is unstable. I couldn't imagine taking children away from their mother just becasue she had too many, those are still her children.

Lisa   March 12th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

I wonder if all of the money she gets for exploiting her children is being reported to the California Medicaid department. You can only have so many "assets" before you no longer qualify. It must be nice to have a new house "gifted" to you while taxpayers pay over $100,000 a month to care for her kids.

LaRyssa   March 12th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

You have got to be kidding me! Octomom needs all the help she can get?! Make the doc who helped her become pregnant with all those babies shell out the dough. Why should anyone else donate?

Patsy Capps   March 12th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

The octomom is getting big bucks for allowing various publications to print pictures of her 14 kids. She is getting big bucks to appear on various t.v. shows. I hope the California officials investigate this income and force her to pay the huge hospital bill for the 8 kids. The California taxpayers should not have to pay the hospital bills!!

chad   March 12th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

I have however found it very disturbing to see that the man is ALWAYS wrong for snapping under the manipulation that a women puts out? But hey, the feminist movement is strong in the USA! I think that men to get involved and start abuse groups and you might be surprised to find out what is really going on and why men abuse with physical violence. Nothing is ever brought up about the emotional abuse, financial abuse or the infedelity that leads to the physical part????

I know, I know, that doesn't give anybody the right to use violence! Then why are we SO caught up in the aftermath of the violence instead of preventing it? Women are some of the blame and feminism is mostly to blame. Anything you respond with can not change the fact that a woman is beat every 15 seconds in the USA with the current viewpoint of the feminist movement!

Jeff   March 12th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

The octomom brought this all on herself, she knew for a long that she could possibly have at least 6, and yet and she didn't do what she needed to do. Now are all suppose to give her a hand out to help her take care of these children.

Financially she should have planned way ahead, before she even thought about getting pregnant again.
She already had 6 kids at home, and could not care for them, what made her think she could take care of 8 more.

John J McKenna   March 12th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

Following this & can only think that at best the Octomom needs all the help that she get for her own good, however, her fertility M.D. should share a cell with Bernard Madoff, both bad people.

Dorothy   March 12th, 2009 9:51 pm ET is so unfortunate to see someone having 14 kids just for the name of fame......very disturbing.
somebody needs to help these kids....because they are the future of tomorrow.

Evelyn (Canada)   March 12th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

Why isn't anyone asking this question: "Why aren't all the pro-lifers and anti-stem-cellers pouring forth with offers of cash and assistance to Octomom? After all, actions speak louder than words." Can you imagine the financial burden to the health care system, not to mention the world's resources, if all the unused tiny embryonic "cells" were implanted into thousands of "Octomoms" ???

Joe From Oxford CT.   March 12th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

Re: Octomom

I think the doctor who performed the invitro fertilization on both Nadya's prior 6 children as well as the octuplets should be forced to contribute to the care of the children. Where is the oversight and responsibility on the part of the "professional" doctor ?


Emily   March 12th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

I think this woman is selfish. She knew she couldn't afford these children, heck she couldn't afford the 6 before. Why should the state and taxpayers of California be responsible for her unrealistic expectansies. Those children should not be taking care of those kids at all.

Mary   March 12th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

We are only keeping up with one octomom. I just wonder how many other Octomoms that are out there. I just hope each and everyone can be responsible parents and provide as much as they can.

Ken Snyder   March 12th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

After viewing tonight's broadcast on the Rihanna domestic violence case, I wonder why there wasn't a thorough discussion about the behavior of abusers. If there are 1.3 million DV victims each year, what about those 1.3 million abusers? Until the behavior of abusers is examined in detail, people will continue to pose that inappropriate question...why didn't she leave him? The more important questions are...what is the nature of abusive men? How do they think? Why do they abuse? Can abusive behavior be changed? Please consider these issues for a follow-up program.

First let's call her Nadia, her kids are going to have enough problems
without being referrred to Octo's kids. Let's hope for the best for the kids.

Alisa   March 12th, 2009 9:52 pm ET

While I don't condone violence against women at all and will never blame the victim, I wonder whether the focus on this case and Chris Brown in particular is not in some case based on race.
A few weeks before this incident, we saw a picture of Michael Phelps smoking marijuana; last I remember, that act was also a crime. However, I don't recall any of his endorsements being stripped; as a matter of fact, he is still considered a role model. A role model for breaking the law???
I don't think I want my children smoking pot nor do I want my children committing a violent act against anyone.
Please distinguish the two in terms of the media coverage and public backlah. Thanks.

Elida   March 12th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

Dear Friends,

I know of this Linda West cofounder of Angels in waiting, from what I have seen and know of this woman, I believe she is only in it for the money, I know she always as her hands in something for the money, I hope someone really investigates this woman. What I have experienced from this woman is not a good trustworthy character, I would not feel comfortable leaving my hildren with this woman.

Kathleen   March 12th, 2009 9:53 pm ET

I am so concerned about the welfare of these babies, as well as the other six children and the mother. I think the mother should give these children up for open adoptions. It would be an unselfish act and truly in the best interest of the children. It is wonderful how generous individuals and organizations have been to these beautiful little babies.

A 99% success of retrieving all information needed from Bernie to recover what is left could be accomplished if he were given a sentence to hang until dead unless all info was given within 30 days. Information would start to appear.

George   March 12th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

The people helped her to create the babies have to pay the cost for the care of those babies. They need learn a lesson by this incdent, it can not happen again. The clinic suppose to check her background and her ablity to support the babies.

Bhante Upananda   March 12th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

There could be many more Madoffs on the Wall Street shooting the people on the Main Street. Main Street is much more vulnerable to organized economic crime than ever, since the crime is being operated from the Wall Street.

Toni   March 12th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

I am disappointed with Nadya. She could not take care of her six kids without help then she added more kids. I think she knew she was going to depend on others to help her & the question is why??? Did she do this in order to get help for the others by bringing more children in with such a bang she knew she was going to get the cameras on her.

rosemary   March 12th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

Has Nadia ever considered putting some of the octuplets up for adoption for couples who are desperate and sterile? This could be the most selfless and loving thing she could do for the sake of the 6 children she already has and what a blessing for others. She could see them if they were adopted in her home town, too.

Nancy Morey   March 12th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

In this deep recession, we, the taxpayers are being asked to donate for these infants' care?! The state of Calif. needs to step up to the plate! They allowed this to happen (with no regulations for fertility doctors). The Native American population has the highest infant mortality rate in the country. Who is helping them? This Nadya Suleman obviously needs psychiatric help. Maybe the state of Calif. will pay for that, too, so she won't continue to victimize the system, consciously or not. What ever happened to zero population growth? Where is Paul Ehrlich when we need to hear from him?

Dennis Gershowitz   March 12th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

Octomom should be under psychiatric care and the 8 preemies taken from her and placed in foster homes. This way they can get the start in life they deserve. All this caregiver effort being offered now, will burn money faster than they can take in. At the end of the day, the money will run out. Octomom will then be left to her own devices, which she probably never considered.
This is an irresponsible adult, who does not deserve these or any other children.
By the way, there are many more important events to report on than playing to Octomom's need for publicity.
Dennis G.

R.Ross   March 12th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

If all these talk shows and Nadia are concerned about the well-beings of these children, strong consideration should be given to having them all adopted. Why is the public being encouraged to make donations to assist this mother? If she can't manage these 8 new children let alone the 6 she has at home, then what is everyone thinking here!! I am appalled that these children are actually being allowed to be put into the hands of a mother who is clearly imbalanced. Larry King, Dr. Phil and anyone else who is pleading with the public for assistance should be ashamed of themselves.

aliou   March 12th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

I hate what radio, TV and bloggers are doing to this woman. THis is terrible. Everyone is trying to gain fame or whatever from vilifying this woman.
Please leave her alone. She needs all the support for these children and to keep her sanity. Some even suggested medicating her. And so far, this lady is more intelligent than most of the people I see on tv, radio or blogs.
You all need therapy, not her.

Cassie   March 12th, 2009 9:55 pm ET

About Octomom... I do not think Suleman will let the "Angel" nurses be in control in the health and care of the babies, and therefore there will be liability issues right off the start

tina   March 12th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

He will be out of jail on a pass very soon. As soon as the hoopla dies down and the media goes away. His attorneys will say he is sick and needs to come home.
He took fall for all the others. Who at chasebank allowed that much money to be delivered? oh yes I forgot they were getting the interest off the money right? They should leave him in jail like they did Korvorkian.

Ashley Allen   March 12th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

I was shocked to hear Rihanna going back to Chris Brown, I mean is she kidding me?! Although noone really knows what happened , but to say the least , abuse and violence in any way is wrong. I think she is sending a wrong message to all of her young fans especially young women who look up to her SHE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HERSELF AND SHOULD CHRIS BROWN.

Dez   March 12th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

Gloria Allred is not trustworthy and controlling. How dare you call a press conference within hours after a 2 week deadline past; one you imposed upon Nadya to meet YOUR demands. There is no love in that. If you had it your way those children would be in foster care. Thank God for Dr Phil. Although misguided at the start of this process, Nadya obviously loves her children...all of them. You mentioned Nadya's panic call to 9-1-1 when she couldn't find one of her children. Any mother, who has ever been in a department store and has been unable to find their child for a moment because they strolled off in an aisle knows that feeling of sheer panic. That was Nadya felt at that moment. Stop persecuting her. She has paid enough. It is now time for people everywhere to embrace her and her children.

Mary   March 12th, 2009 9:57 pm ET

I think the Octomom should put the 8 up for adoption. It would be better for all of them

carole   March 12th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

Gloria is misleading the public with statements like the babies wont need Medi-cal if people contribute. Medi-cal is for the medical needs by docs and hospitals and meds. These "angels" cant provide that. I can't believe that Gloria believs what she said!

Devon Weekes   March 12th, 2009 9:58 pm ET

I feel that a lot of celebrities probably deal with domestic violence everyday behind their fancy mansion gates unfortunely chris and rhianna was in public when it happened

John Rette   March 12th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

The Suleman situation is a human travesty. There is simplyl no way that someone that is in her dire fiscal and personal straits can take care of the existing 6 children let alone 8 pre-mature infants.

She needs medical help not more media attention. The doctor who did this should be on trial or at least subject to suspension of his medical license. To bring these infants into the world in this way is simply an atrocity to these babies and to our society.

Georgina Ross-Douglas   March 12th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

I agree that the octuplets mom was a little off her rocker,however,my heart cries out for the rights,compassion,love,and support for Naydia and her fourteen children. A picture perfect shot of one of the babies with their eyes wide open,cries out to the world,'LOOK AT ME,I AM ALIVE AND NEED YOUR HELP!!!!

Shanice   March 12th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

I just don't understand why mericans use singers and sports stars and pop stars as role models for their children. It amazes me how once rihanna falls off the pedestal you build for her she is deemed as unworthy. It's pathetic! STOP USING RIHANNA AND OTHER STARS AS YOUR ROLE MODELS!!!!!!!! They are human beings just like us and they make mistakes just like us. Believe me when i say that rihanna is not the first woman to go back to someone who abuse her and believe me when i say she will NOT be the last. Maybe if the spotlight wasn't on the two of them every hour on the hour they can probably gain the ability to work out their differences. Unless you are in the situation, you should not judge rihanna for her decision. I am not agreeing with what chris did it was wrong. You never hit a woman but as a christian i learn to forgive those you do wrong because a saint is just a sinner who falls down but gets back up.

Ashley Allen   March 12th, 2009 10:00 pm ET


Tamara   March 12th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

I find this whole thing offensive. This woman planned this and everyone is falling right into it. Take the babies away from this woman and give them a chance. I don't think that anyone should give anything until she is out of the picture. she did not do this out of love she did it for herself and her pocket book. These kids mean nothing to her. It is all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$4

Laura   March 12th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

I was a single parent of one–with a college education and well off parents. To be a GOOD parent was a struggle under the best of circumstances. That child services is even considering allowing these vulnerable children to go home with someone who would even make a decision to have all those kids alone in the first place, without the proper circumstances for their truly good care, is an abomination. There are so many waiting for children to adopt...where is the good sense for and from everyone concerned????

fadima   March 12th, 2009 10:03 pm ET

Why is it that people are so upset with Nadia? Is it because she has a muslim name? What about the Dougers family who had 18 or 19 children? She has a tv show and a lot of help. I donot hear people fussing about her. Leave that poor woman alone. If we are going to help... let us do so for God sake. She has enough stress in her life already. This great country was built on Christian values. So let us do the right thing and help out our fellow human. The Bible says "yea without sin, cast the first stone".

Jennifer   March 12th, 2009 10:08 pm ET

Who can we trust?

Government has let use down; there should have been better oversight.

For too long society treats the RICH WHITES as if they're above reproach. This is the result. Bernie Madoff's operation for over 30 years.

James and Crystal Toney   March 12th, 2009 10:09 pm ET

The Octomom truly made a bad judgement. But she has been forced to committ to an agreement to where she is being tricked and blind sided to where these people have complete control of all of her children. And they will take all 14 of them because the donations will not be met. And after this program is over CPS will never leave her alone. Her days of motherhood are over. Sad but true.

Linda   March 12th, 2009 10:10 pm ET

@ Patricia in Edmonton

Let me see When Sean Penn was abusive to his partner(think it was Madonna, could have been another wormen but I am sure it was her) and the Rock Singer Tommy whatever with his abusive behavior with his wife, DIDN'T GET ALL THIS PUBLICITY. Media didn't go on and on and on like they are doing with Chris Brown and Rihanna. I don't condone violence agaisnt women or men, but the point is that the media is harping on this a little too much. Those people I mention above were allowed to go on with their careers and wasn't prosecutated or villified in the news. I am suspecting that Rihanna herself was doing some beating too and thats why she is reculant to testify.

mimi   March 12th, 2009 10:11 pm ET

What is Nadya's religious affliation? I haven't heard any comments from the "Religious Right" or the Catholic Church.

karlos anzoategui   March 12th, 2009 10:14 pm ET

i beleive the responsible person for these unfortunate and unnessary births which will now cost taxpayers and contributors hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars in years to come is the doctor who permitted this act of negligence! i think of all the woman who with good jugement have had children that have the same needs and who will never see such help-why are we glorifing this self-promoting and negligent woman with such celebrity status- she aas well as the doctor that permitted these births to happen should be put in jail! Karlos

Pat Pat   March 12th, 2009 10:14 pm ET

I agree with Sunya, this is all a farce. She is using everybody , Dr. Phill
is using her for ratings. Her parents started by saying they cant look after her, the house is too small rest you know they are fixing the house. Angels are not doing for kind ness in their heart, they get paid by donations or by maidicaid [either way its tax payers]. What happens after 6 months [dont forget the bill is $135,000 a month]
I feel sorry for the kids , what a life they are going to have.

David B Rodriguez   March 12th, 2009 10:18 pm ET

I have had many conversations about the octo mom, and the general concensess seems to be, we feel very sorry for all 14 children. But because of Nadia's relunctance to answer questions in a forthright manner and evasive responces, leads me to believe she never had a clear plan on how she would obtain the resourses to raise these children. So I am very relunctant to sign my check and send it to the octo trust fund, but in the end I will put the check in the mail. I hope she will soon learn to stop putting herself in the spotlight of her 15min of fame, because it seems she is unwilling to let go of the noteriety

Ann B   March 12th, 2009 10:20 pm ET

I before E except after C – How do you spell "thief?" It's not "theif" as you had in your intro to the Madoff story.

Dez   March 12th, 2009 10:26 pm ET

People have been having over 10 kids per family since the beginning of time. What makes this unique is that we are talking about octuplets. In other words, if the octuplets were actually 8 different births, this would be a non-issue. Nadya will need round the clock assistance for at least the next 3 years, then a fraction of the help for the following 3 years. Thereafter, she will be fine...beyond busy, but fine. She has love for those children. Ask any child who has been in foster care and moved around, or adopted children separated from siblings, and they will tell you they'd rather have been raised in a cramped space but surrounded by the unconditional love a a mother, than separated. Given the choice between a loving mom who needs short term help, and splitting up a is cheaper and better long-term for society if the biological parent gets the help needed to succeed. Do you know that 70% of the people in prison were raised in foster care? Bet many people haven't considered that. The best gift we can give to these 14 kids is to love their mother. Give Nadya the help and support she needs; stop judging. I am confident that if she got $1 Million, she would ensure at least 90% is secured for the children. Right or wrong, it was love for her unborn children (the embryos) that gave the world its first healthy and living octuplets.

Patricia in Edmonton, Canada   March 12th, 2009 10:27 pm ET

Western society has been worshipping and glamorizing violence for a very long really doesn't matter who hit who first and why didn't those other guys get that attention. Domestic violence is only one of the insanities that needs to stop....acknowledging that these insanities exist and take them off the unapproachable list is a start.

vicki   March 12th, 2009 10:33 pm ET

The Octomom is a joke! What a way to be in the news and become famous. I think the kids should be given up for ADOPTION, not foster care, as they could then be given constant care by one mom and one dad who truly love them and CAN care for them. She is definitely a mental case. We'll be hearing about her in the news for a long, as she loves it! I just feel the kids will NOT get the care they need unless they are ADOPTED.

olga   March 12th, 2009 10:36 pm ET

who will be cooking in Octmom's house? a lot of people to FEED 3 times a dau. maybe they will use paper plates !...does she think she is Angelina Jolie ?....full lips & plastic surgery, she has an irritating voice, very low, not very refined, /not a criticism, just an observation/ & where is the Dad of all these children ??..

John   March 12th, 2009 10:46 pm ET

About this Bernie Madoff thing. I saw one of a number of individuals who lost money with this person being interviewed and one of them has lost $10,000,000. So we have someone who already had ten million giving it all to Bernie Madoff thinking he would maybe have 100 million. Ten million is not enough? I know not everyone who was cheated by this man was a millionaire but a large number of them were. And I'm supposed to feel sorry for these people. There is just one word to describe this situation – GREED. I prefer to save my feelings of sorrow for all the millions of people who have worked themselves to the bone all their lives and if lucky, may have put a few thousand dollars away for their old age. These people losing everything they have is a much larger catastrophe then these wheeler dealer millionaires. I find some justice in seeing them come down and experience what the majority of hard working Americans are experiencing.

Donna   March 12th, 2009 10:51 pm ET

regarding chris and Rihanna I don't agree with anyman putting their hands on a woman, however we do have men who are abused but don't speak out for fear of appearing like a cissy or for fear of reprisal. Chris and Rihanna are both kids they will learn from their mistakes, and some of those holier than thou's who have a lot of negatives to say need to shut up. Some of them verbally abuse their spouse, women are known to do this as that is our strongest part 'our mouth'. Now I'm sure Rhanna did not sit by and let this kid beat her into submission, no woman does that and this island girl who probably went to public school in the island i'm sure did not sit back and take a beat down i'm sure she responded actively with whatever resources she had. Her decision to forgive him is totally between them, we should leave them alone, the more we get on their cases the more defiant they will become to prove their point. As for Oprah, Robin Givens , and attention seeking Brown they need to shut up. I don't think Oprah has ever loved anyone but herself enough to put away bitterness and forgive, as for givens and Brown, nicole was a gold digger just like Robin Givens, Brown is using her sister's situation to get attention. When OJ was using all his money to support her and the entire family they never made a sound about 'abuse' until her cheating sister got caught and whatever happened happened. Moreover they were all tough grown women, leave the kids to find themselves, and forgive each other and get over their situation without you all capitalizing on their situation

Patricia in Edmonton, Canada   March 12th, 2009 11:04 pm ET

Why don't they make Bernie Made-off work in a minimum wage job and have to pay rent in a basement suite and let him live like the people who he made poor. Of course he can only go from work to home, from home to work and once a week to the grocery store. Let him pay his own way. Have one of those tracking anklet and close monitoring. That would be the way to go...he won't be bleeding the American public another 40 some odd thousand to have a roof over his head and food to eat.

Johnny   March 12th, 2009 11:29 pm ET

I am absolutely fed up with the disingenous outcry of concern for the octo babies since it seems to false and ratings generated. Where is the concern for the thousands of children who are at risk, who live in poverty but do not have publicity hungry parents willing to exploit them at the drop of a hat. Nadya is playing this show, just as she did Dr. Phil and The Today Show. Enough already. How in god's name can you ask people who are did everything right, lived responsibly and within thei rmeans, to contribute to a woman who feels entitled to other people's money and support. She is totally irresponsible and narcissistic but definitely not stupid and knows how to play people. The best thing you can do is stop giving her the attention she craves.

kris hatfield   March 12th, 2009 11:44 pm ET

Octomom first said she was getting no government assistance, then said she was getting nearly $500 a month in food stamps. Hello-first of all that is gov assistance- second there are rules to that program. In Louisiana the first rule is no matter what your income/ # of people in your household is, if you have resources totalling $2,000 you can not recieve food stamps. By resources, the program means the total value of your automobiles, plus all your money in the bank, plus the cash in your pocket at the time of the application. So tell me how someone who has enough money to pay for the procedure 6 times prior and this time can recieve food stamps to begin with. Seeing as how food stamps is a federal program, even with the difference for cost of living between Louisiana and California, in my book that is food stamp fraud. But hey- lets donate our hard earned cash even though our used car is worth $500 and we have $1501 in the bank and 4 kids of our own to raise and can't get food stamps since we are $1 over our limit of resourcesand are working for $7.50 an hour. Maybe I should look up that doctor, then I can have 5 or 6 more kids and draw food stamps and live in a $565,000 house paid for with donations from other hardworking stiffs.

sabrina   March 13th, 2009 12:13 am ET

I'm so sick of hearing about this chris brown and Rhianna story. I swear if I hear more news about it, I will scream. First of all, Chris hasn't been announced guilty and everyone basically has already convicted him. This is my thing. If they're parents aren't worried about it, why are you? You should ask yourself, especially the parents of Rhianna, they really haven't protested this relationship. I think people need to stay out of it. You know how you say no, stop, don't do it. People tend to DO it anyway. We have a saying in the south, especially when your girlfriend is doing something stupid. If you like it, I LOVE it. The media is only doing harm then good. She (Rhianna) have to figure it out for herself. You see Rhianna is making records with Chris. So, stop it before they get married!

Purnell Kankakee IL.   March 13th, 2009 12:20 am ET

If anyone thinks that his wife and family never got a dime of that money they are crazy!

Purnell Kankakee IL.   March 13th, 2009 12:21 am ET

My grandmother had 13 children, would all of you put her down too!

Purnell Kankakee IL.   March 13th, 2009 12:24 am ET

Can any explain how the wife got her money, that she was able to pay for a 7 million dollar home, and have 50 million in the bank. Please explain!

Purnell Kankakee IL.   March 13th, 2009 12:27 am ET

Madoff's wife, and sons and daughters got some of that money, remeber that Madoff was trying to send some more through the mail and got caught, or do you all have every limited memory!

James Moore   March 13th, 2009 12:31 am ET

I'm glad that there's so much speaking out about abuse and how it should never be tolerated, by any man or woman, but, please, for god's sake, WHO the hell are Chris Brown or Rihanna? Seriously, I'll bet 98% of American has no clue who these 2 losers are, and even worse, from what I read they're both spoiled children who have NO talent and NO reason to be in the spotlight. People, give me a break!! This country and this world are in so much trouble with so many IMPORTANT issues, why do we care about 2 media hypes? Lets please MOVE ON....

Purnell Kankakee IL.   March 13th, 2009 12:31 am ET

Madoff and his family stole money for 70 and 80 years people how are they going to have money for the rest of their lives? Those people lost everything and no one is going to higher them at their ages, so how can Madoff and his family keep any money? Unless they come off of the money, and we will have to pay for their retirement too!

Purnell Kankakee IL.   March 13th, 2009 12:37 am ET


You are right Bill Clinton acted as if the egg and the sperm do not come together they become a human baby when the egg and sperm merge into an embryo, and until people realize that they will continue to not value human life!

Purnell Kankakee IL.   March 13th, 2009 12:41 am ET

The SEC worked for those crooks they knew something was wrong but did nothing, that one guy warned them years before but they refuse to do anything about the whole mess! How many times would you have to be warned that something is wrong with your money before any of you would act?

Derek King   March 13th, 2009 12:43 am ET

Larry, I know everyone needs a night of, but your replacement covering the topic of Rihanna and Chris Brown and the so called panel of experts left me very angry. At no point was it stated that domestic violence crosses all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic boundaries. This segment was nothing more than the typical tabloid coverage. A shame, so much more could have been learned by your viewers in the time allotted.

Don   March 13th, 2009 12:44 am ET

Boy! Larry King needs to get back to his show. How can you compare Chris Brown to OJ Simpson. The women on this show is just feeding the fear of a black men. Have any one on this show interview Rihanna? Gossip,Gossips. Too many chicken in the hen house.

Purnell Kankakee IL.   March 13th, 2009 12:47 am ET

At 18 and above you are an adult not a kid, stop making excuse for the both of them and their bad choices they are adults, they live with each other they are adults not kids!!!

Jill   March 13th, 2009 12:48 am ET

I admire your piece on domestic violence. What needs special attention is the military community. Spousal/girlfriend abuse is rampad and the culture really punishes the victims monetarily, medically, psychologically and spiritually. I barely escaped a 23 yr marriage to a Marine and guess what I was a Marine too! With the wars going on, it is just as dangerous for the families as it is for the terrorists.

La Keisha Cortorreal   March 13th, 2009 12:48 am ET

I have been following the Rihanna and Chris Brown story since I heard word of it the following night of the Grammy's and I am saddened to learn that both of their careers may "forever be changed". The public expects Rihanna to be a spokes person for what has happened to her but what I do not understand is, what is wrong with her taking time to get help to heal herself first? Rihanna is a grown woman and has the right to choose her own path. As for Chris Brown, what he did was wrong but I did not create him so therefore I cannot judge him. Regardless of what has happened, I think they both may need counseling because something like this may not go away. I have been there and when the arguments start up again I can guarantee Rihanna will remind him "but you hurt me". I am not perfect and I have yet to meet a man or woman who is, so I refuse to cast a stone at Chris or Rihanna for their actions. I am a fan of Chris Brown and I hope the both of them can heal some how. I would still purchase his music because I appreciate his talents. What ever they decide THEY are the ones who will live with their own decision.

lisa cusack   March 13th, 2009 12:51 am ET

i think people should leave the lady with all the kids alone its her right her body to have the kids their all heathy and she will make it through john and kate plus 8 and a few others ive heard off making money on their shows no reason she caint too those kids will be just fine theirs lots of people who have big family everyone needs help everyone should leave her alone and shutup.

Carolina Menapace   March 13th, 2009 12:51 am ET

While I agree that she needs all the help that she can get, for the sake of her children, I am appalled at the TYPE of help she is getting. Dr. Phil arranged for a celebrity nursery design company to donate cribs and design a nursery...I don't think the children are going to care what their nursery looks like. This is giving her exactly the attention she wanted and I don't think it's fair for her to get all of these added perks.

Debra   March 13th, 2009 12:51 am ET

Whereas, I don't condon the choice of the Octomom, I don't feel the children should suffer. Although, I have always been told, with choices, come consequences.

Terrance E   March 13th, 2009 12:51 am ET

It seems as if the media is exacerbating the incident with Chris and Rihanna. No one seems to state the FACT that Rihanna hit Chris first. But all of a sudden, Chris is the only one being blamed for the whole situation. So before all of these "abuse experts" start mouthing off, maybe they can blame all parties involved, not just the man. And may I ask, where was all of the scrutiny when Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee was going through the same thing? Seems like a media double standard.

Edye West   March 13th, 2009 12:53 am ET

We need to not blame the children for the mistakes of the parents. These are human lives. To speak of the "burden" that they will pose on taxpayers is sad. When they grow up, just like the rest of us, they will become taxpayers. They are Americans! Our tax dollars help non-Americans everyday. What of the other foreign born children that come to this country for speciality surgeries (seperating twins, etc). How are these children supposed to feel when they grow up to find out that most of the people didn't want them to be here. How cruel. There are parents with one or two children that can't take the pressure. Also, don't think for a minute that she is going to get rich off of the donations. Would you like to have 14 kids in a 4 bedroom house. I think not.

Lana   March 13th, 2009 12:55 am ET

It's kids first! I am wondering why it is such a big deal that this mother was on food stamps? Aren't there plenty of women in America that are living on food stamps & aide to dependent children? This woman has made history with the birth of these octuplets. I don't think racking her over the coals for making history is going to help the octuplets or her other children. Thank you for reading.

Purnell Kankakee IL.   March 13th, 2009 12:57 am ET

How in the heck do you lose 65 billion? And then say that no one in your entire family benefitted from the stealing all those peoples life savings? Did his family ever go on trips, give presents, give parties, bonuses to people, have holiday gifts,. Did any of his family pay for their children college tuition, clothes, food, water or drinks, to say that his wife never used any of that money is a total lie, so she and her evil children’s have to give up everything and/or go to prison too!

I hope they all told the investigator that they never took any of the money so that they can get caught in that lie, and have to spend even more time in prison along with Madoff!

A mom is to protect,make a child feel safe and loved. I feel Nayda had these beautiful babies for financial gain. I don't understand why she money in the bank and still is getting support from welfare.
I feel she is not going to be a hands on Mom,she is more concerned with what her wants and need. I feel for the children.
Also I do NOT want to see her on TV with her own show.
She needs to get more than help with the children , she need mental health care

Andrea Mulkey   March 13th, 2009 1:01 am ET

First, I just found it kinda interesting that Larry missed the 'feminine' day...was that planned in advance? Maybe he'll be in for the follow up show Ken suggested focusing on the abuser...

'Octomom' is obviously unstable. The Dr who agreed to this should lose his license. Their homelife should be monitored 24/7 to ensure the safty of those poor children.

Her neurosis is just an example of the larger neurosis of our society to consume, attain and accumulate.... we can never be satisfied with ourselves so we constantly reach outward... stretching our resources to the max while denying the dark parts of our personality... just as we individually repress, we societally repress... consuming and consuming, producing and producing... ignoring the greater effects of our choices on our children, family, community, and environment. Our greed propels us forward – ignorant to the fact that at the rate we 'achieve' we, as One organism, are only digging our hole further, killing ourselves...and our Earth...

Oh, and to whomever said "Thank God for Dr. Phil"......barf!...excuse me..

jason   March 13th, 2009 1:02 am ET

I agree we should all want whats best for the kids but what about all the single moms in this country that work two jobs to support there kids and live in the projects or government housing. Why not buy them a half million dollar home. thoes moms did the responsible thing by having 2 or 3 kids and octo mom does the irresponsible thing and gets rewarded for it. she gets a half million dollar home, a reality show some day and maby a book deal that will give her millions of dollers. Is this the kind of message we want to send to people

Peggy   March 13th, 2009 1:02 am ET

Never mind "where's the beef", Madoff, Where's the money???

Andrea   March 13th, 2009 1:03 am ET

I just have to say that I think that the Octomom is smart when it comes to money, she went public to receive money from famous people like Dr. phill. She aswel with other women have to do what they have to do for there kids. How ever, I am against the whole "angeles on waiting" thing. If they are so concern why not do it for free. If there volunteering there time to help this family why not do it for free....

Edye West   March 13th, 2009 1:05 am ET

There may be a reason that so many babies are being born lately. To have 8 births that are still alive. Some people can't even have one viable life let alone 8. I say, let go and let God. Maybe some or all of them may find the cure for some devastating illness or be a creator of something grand. Love the children.

Purnell Kankakee IL.   March 13th, 2009 1:05 am ET

There has to be a record of someone else other them him cutting checks, Madoff and his family deserve a million year for their actions!

Suzanne   March 13th, 2009 1:05 am ET

This woman is obviously in need of help. It is a shame that she is being held accountable for this, there is obviously a huge enabling group around her that allowed this to happen. All media must also be held accountable for this side show. Dr. Phil, in particular, is shameless. (is he really a doctor)? It seems to be a rating game, the "entertainment" shows, supposed "news" programming and all of the print media are using this unfortunate case to sell their goods. The bottom line here is that there are 14 children in dire need of someone to intervene for THEIR sake. There is an obviously disturbed and distressed woman with serious problems. The real news here will be when someone takes these children and gives them a chance to lead a normal life...her parents, she herself, the doctor(s) who allowed this to happen and the media should all ask themselves "why". There's your story.

Purnell Kankakee IL.   March 13th, 2009 1:08 am ET

I agree with you, It does not matter how many children a person want to have it is okay with me!

Manny Valle   March 13th, 2009 1:08 am ET

I am an 60 yr old, and disgusted with Naydia. You want people to donate money to her. She wanted to be like Jolie with all the kids and get the publiciity she loves. And she has. How many more woman are going to do the same to get a home and all the attention and money given to her. She isn't taking care of her children everyone else is and we are all paying for it . Mark my word there will be many to follow. Even at my age my friends and I would be willing to go thru the process and have 6 or more babies, we would'nt have to take care of them all of us would. Dr Phil,was upsetting, he gets everyone to donate, how much money comes our of his pocket. We want change .
Let all the rich who agree with him pay for her services. Ask jolie, Brad , Madonna and others to pay for this wacko and the many more to follow.

Tiffany   March 13th, 2009 1:09 am ET

I am so sick of Nadya Suleman. She is so selfish.....Did anyone catch the Hollister hoodie, designer sunglasses, and the newly injected botox she was sporting in the pictures they were showing on Larry King Live? How can she afford these luxuries? She is going to use the "handouts" she gets to raise her kids and the other money to buy designer sunglasses, clothes and probably her much needed tummy tuck and other various plastic surgeries.

tina watts   March 13th, 2009 1:11 am ET

This girl is sick! I think she knew from the beginning she would make money on all these kids. Now she's getting money for pictures, vidios, being on shows, she's buying a new house, probly more plastic surgry for herself, why isn't she having to pay the state back for all they are paying for her to have these children that she cannot handle or afford! It's annoying people are paying her for this and there will be people send her "donations" the state should take the children and put them in homes to people that "want" the children not "wanting" to make a meal ticket out of them.

Purnell Kankakee IL.   March 13th, 2009 1:11 am ET

How can they trace the money from all Madoff and his evil family, and not look for the money that was used in 9/11, remember that the commission said that the money did not matter to them, and they were all Bush flunkies. Tracing the money is how many cases are brought to justice!

La Keisha Cortorreal   March 13th, 2009 1:12 am ET

One last comment, I would like to state that I think the Chris Brown/Robyn F. (Rihanna) case is bad because there is constant talk about what has happened with them and like another person stated there are stars like Ms. Spears, Mr. Phelps, etc. who have done things out of conduct that young kids might question their parents about but how long did that coverage last. Like I tell my kids, "always watch yourself because you can change your actions but not who you are". There are so many people loosing their homes, jobs, life savings, and all the media keeps showing is Chris & Rihanna let them live their own lives. You all have already showed their faces enough in the media. Now if you all want to talk about something tell me how can I survive the economy and hopefully have a way to send my kids to college? LET'S TALK ABOUT SOMETHING THE AVERAGE AMERICAN CAN RELATE TOO LIKE MONEY.

Drew   March 13th, 2009 1:14 am ET

There is only one reason that Nadya had 8 more children. Think about it.......seriously. Already having 6 children; living with her parents; in a three-bedroom home; unemployed & needing food stamps. Obviously.........the 6 that she already has, wasn't getting her what she wanted & needed. There was only one solution!!! Have a multiple birth, which will definitely bring attention to her!!! She "KNEW" people would be angry about the decision she made. She absolutely knew that. But..........she also knew.........that eventually........people will come around & think of the babies (as well as the other 6) and she "WOULD" get what she wanted & needed!! A big, beautiful home and "alot" of donations!!!
Soooooooooo...........if anyone is in financial problems.........and could lose their home........heck, have a multiple birth & call Dr. Phil!!!!!

Gwen   March 13th, 2009 1:16 am ET

What's happened to Rihana won't stop until she begins to truly love herself FIRST, and not Chris, know who she is, where she is going, what she wants, and realize that she dosen't need Chris to validate her. I can attest to this because I was in an abusive relationship and the abuse didn't stop until I walked away and began loving myself.

Kate   March 13th, 2009 1:16 am ET

I really believe Nadia planned to garner all kinds of sympathy and attention. It's obvious, she had six, no way to support them, probably didn't want to get a job, so logically, get pregnant with IVF knowing multiple birth is most probable. How else to get attention, sympathy, and money by setting some kind of record, and she has set a record indeed. After all, past parents of multiples get all kinds of donations, attention, etc, and with being the biggest record setter, she surely assumed that she'd be on top of the world.

What aggravates me most is that she is currently getting government assistance. She had no health insurance at all, and it has been stated that the cost for a typical premie - for one premie - is $164,000. Multiply that by eight. Who is paying for that? The taxpayers of course.

Now we have this story about her buying a house. I believe the government hasa duty and obligation to tell the taxpayers what they are doing now. If Nadya has the money to buy a half million dollar house, she most definitely has the money to pay the hospital bill. And the hospital bill MUST come FIRST.

When people are getting handouts from the taxpayer, it is on the basis they are poor, they have no assets. We all know that elderly people, who worked hard for many years, scrimped, saved, bought a house, raised their children, all without government handouts, that if one should need to go into a nursing home, that person cannot have the government pay (medicaid) until that person gets rid of all assets.

Similarly, Nadya now has an asset, a very lucrative asset. With that being the case, Nadya must now pay the hospital bill, and no more SSI for the 2 or 3 kids of hers that she has been getting money on behalf of.

She lives in California. California is having major financial problems. I believe I read that the state is not currently paying out state income tax refunds. There are people that have worked for many years, even decades, did the right thing, saved money, bought a house, and then they lose their job in this pre-depression era after depleting their savings. And now they are living in tents.

But this Nadya tries to get the taxpayers to pay hundreds of thousands for her babies, she already gets SSI for a couple kids, surely some if not all of these octs will have major health issues making them otherwise eligible for SSI which is done "Pay to the order of Nadya." That is not right, and most definitely not when she ownes a posh expensive house.

Most of the news references kids should not be put in foster care because SOME foster parents are not good. Why foster care? Why not permanent removal and place them with childless parents who desparately want to adopt and can give a baby or two all the love and attention, and all the medical that the baby needs, at no cost to the taxpayer.

Ida Fortman waterloo il.   March 13th, 2009 1:19 am ET

Why did you only read ok comments about Octumom on the air?
99% of the comments said she was not fit to take care of these babies.

diana   March 13th, 2009 1:34 am ET

I pray for those 14 chilldren but I am struggling for myself and my 2 kids thank god my husband still works but I'm not I'm trying my hardest to find a job but with 2 kids and daycare costs being cut oout my options are limited. I would help if I can but I'm trying to make it myself but I will pray for the kids. I hope octo gets a reality chech and learns her lesson cause she's still a dumb nut in my opinion.

Suzanne   March 13th, 2009 1:55 am ET

Oh, and Mr.'s so convenient to find the greediest pig in the sty, isn't it? Hold him up and build the gallows...The bottom line here is that greed ran America for a very long time. We are all equally to blame, the something for nothing mentality had the entire world buying water in bottles because it made us look a certain way, wearing certain clothes because they gave us panache, living beyond our means because we certainly didn't want our neighbours one step ahead of us......It's time for now for pot roasts, tap water, good conversation around the kitchen table, books and music. EDUCATION. Honesty. Sharing our lives with one another. Being truthful again. Madoff and his ilk were applauded for a very long time and many people strived to be just like him. We have seen the errors now and it is up to all of us to not forgive the greed but to rise above it and to start anew. To hang one man will not erase our misdeeds.

JIMMIE VAUGHNBRYANT   March 13th, 2009 2:41 am ET

I was amazed on thursday night's broadcast, when the reporting on Mr. Madoff story, and what popped across the screen was.............

THEIF in red bold letters.

Does anyone proofread material before it airs?

the correct spelling is..........THIEF.

This is not a good example for young children to see misspelled words on television.

janette tx   March 13th, 2009 3:23 am ET

Madoff's wife sons and daughter should have to move to low-income
housing with only two bedrooms,ride the subway to work and pay
90% of what they make to the children of the people they stole from as long as they live – AFTER they return ALL of the 65 billion dollars!!!!!!!!

janette tx   March 13th, 2009 3:32 am ET

Octomom needs to be sterlized.This whole thing was a get rich

Rhonda   March 13th, 2009 3:37 am ET

I am a victim of domestic abuse only he did not hit me. I ran from him because of his words "I want to come pick you up and we'll committ suicide together". Rhianna needs to leave because he had already been violent. He won't stop. And his words can sometimes be worse and come to fruition quicker than the violence.

bombshell in oakland, ca   March 13th, 2009 3:44 am ET

I am soooooooooooooooo tired of hearing about Chris and Rihanna! Geez people!! I can't believe how out of touch people are about this crap nowadays... How about young people believe that if u hit, you will get hit back. Girls today FIGHT men! How about it if everybody stops victimizating Rihanna and make her take responsibility for own actions as well!! They are NOT role-models. They are very well paid entertainers. What have they done for the world that would qualify them as role models? And let's remember, they are humans.. and KIDS at that. I don't excuse Chris' actions, however Rihanna definitely played an aggressor's role in the incident that I think the media is ignorant about. I can't stand the freakin' DOUBLE-STANDARD. My 8 year old son is being told my his 8 year old counter-parts that basically, they can abuse him however they like, and they will not get in trouble. WTF? Where did our girls learn this distorted a** behavior? Because of spectacles such as this. Let this be a lesson for our kids (this applies to boys AND girls); don't get in stupid relationships when you're at a stupid age, learn from other's mistakes; and keep your hands to yourself! The media should concentrate on real domestic violent issues. Rihanna and Chris need to both go to jail for being so stupid. Let s move on America and focus on the people that really need the attention.

Melanie   March 13th, 2009 3:45 am ET

"octomom" needs to take some responsability for her actions. She should have thought about things before she acted. I am one of the meny women out there that can't have babies and here she is taking advantage of that. I beleive that she needs some serious help (mental) Whats with the doc that let her do something so crazy?! He should have his license suspended or something. This is an outrage! Now she has people asking for public help?! I think once again she should have thought about that to begin with!

decarlo from oakland   March 13th, 2009 3:46 am ET

it's amazing that you bring together all of these white women and one black woman to talk about a black male. then you compound the problem by bringing in one of nicole simpson's sister. drop the o.j. crap!

why didn't you bring in some stars or athletes who are white who have been involved in altercations with their significant others. you are treading on thin ice here. you seem to be implying that chris brown, as a man of color, is a murderer, or one in the making.
men of color already have an image problem, you are just making it worse.

think of it in this way, you lead off this show talking about bernie madoff swindling 65 BILLION from investors. would it be appropriate to have a bunch of christians circled around a table saying that america should be wary of people of jewish descent because they will steal their money? the answer is a resounding no! please be smarter about your shows and the people you select to put on for the topic.

p.s.: unless you know what has occurred all judgment should be held until it is specified by the couple.

ohio   March 13th, 2009 3:48 am ET

octo mom .. the only difference between the tax payers paying for all of those kids (and her), is..donations are given by individuals that WANT to give her payers are ripped off and the money is handed to her. one way or another..she is still getting hand outs from hard working people. she is crazy. i am really POd at the whole situation.

Iyapo Kontar   March 13th, 2009 3:55 am ET

Anyone who has watched this women knows she problems and she should not be around the childern until she is well.

Fame   March 13th, 2009 3:55 am ET

By no means do I codone domestic violence. Regarding the Chris Brown/ Rhianna situation I do have a few questions/concerns. First I am concerned about the media as well as influential talk show host jumping to conclusions about the situation as well as convicting Chris Brown without the facts. Excuse me, I guess my first question should have been how do the media and talk show hosts know all the intricate details of the case"that haven't been released". Next, can these all knowing sources tell us how the conflict started and are the pictures that were "leaked" real? Then they (media, talk show hosts, the public) say we need to remember Rhianna is a regular person, then out the other side of their mouth they say she needs to remember she is a "role model" and therefore she should not return to Chris Brown. Ok if Rhianna is a regular person then we must remember that she has feelings and telling her she should be concerned with the world , but not worried about sendig Chris to prison because she should come first is hypocritical. Nobody has even taken into consideration that what has been leaked or told is not even the truth. Rhianna was not even the one to make the 911 call. Nobody has talked to Chris, his friends, ore even given him the benefit of the doubt. I thought the law was innocent until proven guilty and I thought he had the right to fair trial.

nativewomen   March 13th, 2009 4:07 am ET

I think as far as the octomom the media needs to get out of her life now. In order for anybody to help her and make a safe home for the kids is the media needs to get out of her face and let her raise all her kids. I believe she will be good mother and with all the help she is getting she will be able to raise her kids. Now as far as Rhianna and her abusive relationship I am concerned about her safety, but all the pressure she is getting from people to leave Chris Brown and then the pressure of Chris Brown is not at all going to help her make the decision she would like to make. I know from experience there is nothing anybody could say or do to make Rhianna do what they want her to do or what is best for her, because it isn't as easy as people make it out to be. So that is another subject that needs to be left alone, because she needs to be helped outside of the media not with it all over the news.

Dick Cheney had hit squads to kill people across the world!!

It's about time that those war criminals spend a lot of time in prison! The U.S. has fallen so far and become just like Nazi Germany in so many ways!

Dick Cheney was in control of the air force before the 9/11 attacks it was very funny how no one new what to do that day, I think he let them in by having almost every one of our jets on the west coast, and the last four jets in the area head 450 miles away from protecting the air space over the capital of the U.S.

We all know that George Bush and his family were and are still very close with the Bin Ladin’s, George Bush got his money from the Bin Ladin’s to start his oil business, and his father was apart of the child molesting scandal with the kids from boys town!

Prescott Bush worked with IBM who aided the Nazis with their tracking system on the Jewish people they had in the camps, IBM made the machines that was not used any where else but in those camps that killed 6 million Jewish people. The whole bush family is full of war criminals and they need to be placed in prison for their actions!

This country is in real trouble if these people do not go to jail, it would be as if we supported these evil acts!!!

MizzBelfast   March 13th, 2009 5:39 am ET

I am just watching show about Rhianna/Chris Brown and would strongly agree that Rhianna is extremely vunerable at this time.

I note that people have highlighted concerns as Rhianna is a role model for young girls.

I feel it is important as a mother of three children teenage girl and 11 and 9 year old to highlight
Rhianna is a role model for young boys also
My sons love her music, find her attractive and cool
Rhianna is therefore sending out a very dangerous message to young boys by going back to her abuser

I would have much more respect for Rhianna if she had stayed strong and dumped Brown

I think Puff Daddys involvement is quite disturbing also! Is Rhianna being put under pressure to take Brown back?

It would be good to see other sstrong women like Beyonce to come out and support Rhianna at this time of need

I hope Rhianna gains strength and ends this toxic relationship

fatima malik   March 13th, 2009 5:50 am ET

Nadia the Octmom.

Nadia's behaviour is not only irresponsible, immature but pyschology prone for seeking attention. I think she is pyschological sick and wants attention and fame. She doesnt care if in the process she has endangered so many lives (of her kids). The problem is not od freedom of choice but rather balancing it with responsibilty.
However the children dont desrve such a selfish mother.

Kim   March 13th, 2009 5:51 am ET

I cannot believe that this woman is getting this much coverage for being so stupid. she could not afford her first children – the doctor that helped her conceive these babies should be stripped of his licence. Better still executied!!!! There are enough underpriviledged people in the world. How unfair and not carring of the people who are promoting and giving her stuff. I wouldn't be suprised if a lot more girls try this route for fame and fortune. THIS IS CRIMINAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kim   March 13th, 2009 5:55 am ET

Why do they not confiscate all of his property. Why should his family get to keep the stolen property and money. It is so unfair to think that his family is getting away with this!! He is as good as a murderer because of the people that have comitted suicide due to his theft of their hard earned money. There is simply no justice in the world!!

John Odumodu   March 13th, 2009 5:56 am ET

I think is time we give this woman a chance. No matter how good or bad her action may have or may not have been, we should realise that the life of eight kids is now at stake and life is sacred. So show some love.

John Fernandes   March 13th, 2009 6:00 am ET

I feel Mr. Madoff must be send to prison but, there is no use to simply keep him in prison, his skills as an investor be tested since he was the head of Nasdaq, and with the remaining money that the U.S. govt. has found in the custody of Mr. Madoff be utilised to setup a capital which in turn Mr. Madoff can invest under the eyes of govt. agents and the benefits of which to be disbursed to the victims of his scam. This can benifit the losers even if its a few millions or hundreds as well as if he is sucessful an organisation can be made and some jobs would also be created. whats the use of keeping him in prison, where govt. revenues would be spend on him and no benifts for the people who lost their money. Yes no one would trust him at this point in time but if he is forced to do, there is a possibility he would become a asset instead of a liability.

Peggy   March 13th, 2009 6:01 am ET

If the taxpayers are expected to pay for the octomoms delivery and the
8 babies hospital care, which should total well over a million dollars, can she be held responsible for paying this back if she profits financially?

Marilyn Macey   March 13th, 2009 6:14 am ET

Love your host guest, Madam Judge. She did a terrific job hosting Thursday's show. Should have her more often as she's very sharp and articulate.

Patrick from Bäle   March 13th, 2009 6:18 am ET

For the octomom there is a lot of care being organized for the children; primary care specialists, nurses, Angels, etc., but there is no father. Care and the costs are being taken care of, but where is the cost and care of a male figure being provided for. Isn't that important, too? The "whole" home care thing is being organized from outside the family. It's not per se a "family", it's a platoon of specialists and volunteers, etc., obviously necessary in such a situation, but shouldn't there be primary care men/father figures involved, too, or aren't they considered that important a part of the early care and development of the children?

Madoff should be given the honor of working for his money like the rest of us. Place him in a factory job for twelve hours a day, seven days a week for a few years. Give him a nice cot and wool blanket to cuddle at night. He can dine on hot dogs and macaroni and cheese like the rest of us. Let him really understand what a dollar is worth.

did his wife ever work?if no,so sorry.

Pattie   March 14th, 2009 9:38 am ET

My heart goes out to Chris and Rihanna because Americans will love you one minute and try to hang you the next. Chris is wrong but why should the same people who loved him a couple of weeks ago now condemn him. From his break down it is clear that he is wounded. Stardom is hard and challenging. He is someone's son and she is someone's daughter, who is clearly going through something. America needs to help, not destroy. Chris does not have a history of abuse he is a young man with too much going on at one time. God forbid if we fall in America because their is no Right Arm of Fellowship.

pat bailey   March 14th, 2009 10:35 pm ET

Wisdom, knowledge and understanding is grossly lacking in the hearts, mind and soul of Madoff, Rhanna and Octomom. The below synopsis summarizes this perspective.
Mad-Off= Greed
Rhanna=To rich to soon, without an American family with a sound foundation
Octomom= Emotionally lonely and seeking love through reproduction.

Marilyn Macey   March 15th, 2009 12:35 am ET

The world economy is in crisis, we are still talking about Maddof, Rihana and Octomom? It's time to move on and focus on important things. The rest of the world doesn't care what happens to these people as they are only tabloids sensation.

Keysha Myers   March 16th, 2009 10:13 pm ET

It is sad that a single, unemployed woman with six children can go to the doctor and get pregnant again. How did she afford the invetro anyway? From what I understand it is increadibly expensive and takes quite a bit of time. She has six children at home! Two of which have disabilities! Now because of the irrisponsibility of the doctor the state is now forced to provide care for all of those children. As a mother I want to make sure that all of my children are cared for equally and I don't know that octomom will be able to do this. I feel sorry for the children that will suffer from this. It is sad.
