Unfortunately, this doesn’t come as a huge surprise for me. Octomom Nadya Suleman has a prescription drug and drinking problem? You don’t say? I’ve heard her on Howard Stern – OF COURSE she’s on something. She looks and sounds like a crackhead half the time. Luckily the mother-of-14 is seeking help for her problems by checking herself into a rehab facility for 30 days.
TMZ is reporting that she has a problem with Xanax, while other outlets are reporting she drinks regularly – while driving her kids around.
Here’s more from Radar.
On July 18, 2012, Gina [the former nanny] claims she had the eight youngest children at a friendÃ¢â¬â¢s house so they could swim and when Nadya came by to pick them up she showed up late, asked for a glass of wine, and then got so intoxicated she was unable to drive the children home.
RadarOnline.com has obtained exclusive video footage of that night in which Nadya admits sheÃ¢â¬â¢s been drinking and Gina is heard telling her that she cannot drive, as well as a photo of Nadya allegedly passed out on a chair in the house.
Ã¢â¬ÅI had the eight kids and she was meeting me with the older six. She was over three hours late and barely in the door when she asked me for wine,Ã¢â¬Â Gina said.
Ã¢â¬ÅNadya finally got some champagne as the host had no wine, but it turns out she was already drinking vodka cranberry from a water bottle while driving to the house.
Ã¢â¬ÅEventually she was packing theÃÂ carÃÂ to drive home but of course I would not allow her to take the kids so I asked an acquaintance of hers to pick her and the older six up. I took the eight babies back to my house.Ã¢â¬Â
Oh my gosh, how sad. 🙁 Here’s more from TMZ:
Nadya Suleman has checked herself intoÃÂ rehabÃÂ for a prescription drug problem Ã¢â¬Â¦ leaving her 14 kids without a mother for 30 straight days Ã¢â¬Â¦ TMZ has learned.
A rep for Octomom tells us Ã¢â¬Â¦ Nadya admitted herself into the Chapman HouseDrug Rehabilitation CenterÃÂ in Southern California over the weekend after acknowledging sheÃ¢â¬â¢s become dependent onÃÂ XanaxÃÂ Ã¢â¬Â¦ an anti-anxiety drug Ã¢â¬Â¦ which she began taking to Ã¢â¬Ådeal with stress.Ã¢â¬Â
SulemanÃ¢â¬â¢s rep tells us, Ã¢â¬ÅNadya wanted to get off theÃÂ XanaxÃÂ she was prescribed by her doctor and learn to deal with her stress, exhaustion and anxiety with professional help with a team of doctors. Nadya wanted to deal with her issues and make sure she is the best mother she can be.Ã¢â¬Â
TMZ has obtained photos of Nadya on her way to the treatment center (above).
While Nadya is in getting treatment, she reportedly has 3 nannies and a couple drivers to care for the kids. Is it wrong of me to hope that her kids get taken away from her? I just don’t think she’s got it in her to raise all those kids – the way they should be raised. The whole incident is so tragic to me.
