'Octomom' accepts public assistance

April 5, 2012 at 2:12 PM   |   Comments

LA HABRA, Calif., April 5 (UPI) -- Nadya Suleman, the "Octomom," admitted Thursday to accepting California food stamps, saying, "I feel ashamed."

Suleman said for the past two months, she has received $2,000 a month in food assistance from the state of California to feed her 14 children.

"I feel ashamed, but who cares how I feel," she told NBC's "Today" show. "It's 100 percent about my children."

She recently posed topless for a British magazine for $8,000; however, she refuses to do pornography even if someone offered her "100 million dollars."

"I won't touch other human flesh," she said. "I will not lose my grip of my deeply indoctrinated morals and values."

She is also creating an online venture called "Octomom TV" as well as working for "Dial-A-Star" which allows people to talk to celebrities.

"My priority is my children -- their health, their well-being, their safety," she said.
