Octomom Nadya Suleman Signs On For Dating


Brace yourselves, Octomom Nadya Suleman is headed to reality TV. The controversial mother of the world’s first surviving set of octuplets says despite mothering a brood of 14, she’s never “dated.” That’s precisely why she’s agreed to star in Celebridate, a new HDNet dating show in which normal people vie for the hearts of “celebrities.”

“I was lucky enough to be invited to be a part of it. I have not watched TV in almost a decade, but I might just tune into this one! I don’t perceive myself to be a celebrity, but I guess they do. To a certain degree, I am in the public eye,” Suleman told PopEater’s Naughty But Nice Column this week.

“I’ve never dated. This is actually the first time I have dated in my life,” she added. “I’ve had one boyfriend, and it was very fascinating to me; it was an unforgettable experience. I am painfully shy and anxious. That’s just my personality. So it’s difficult for me to interact and to have eye contact.”

Celebridate premieres in October. Roger Lodge — who famously emceed the syndicated dating show Blind Date in the early 2000s — will stand in as host.
