Who could forget this charming story? One of our very favorite famous fathers, Michael Lohan, was in charge of sending one of our very favorite famous mothers, Octomom, to rehab. Michael claimed that Octomom’s manager reached out to him and told him about Octomom’s problem with Xanax, and Michael was like “no problem, I got this.” He staged her intervention, and he set up a treatment program for her.
Except apparently this never happened.
Here’s the statement from Octomom’s rep:
“Michael Lohan’s only participation in this was that he gave me a number to a California rehab. [The TMZ story] also said that Michael and I arranged the treatment, which is not correct. Nadya wanted to check herself into treatment and came to me for help and I got her in.”
Right? But here’s what Michael said about that:
“I was contacted by Gina Rodriguez [Octomom's rep] to put together a TREATMENT PLAN and FACILITY for Nadya! Those things only! The most important thing is the willingness to realize and surrender to the issue and commit to getting help! Nadya was willing to!”
So it sounds like someone’s fibbing here, doesn’t it? And after this little exchange of statements, Octomom herself took a brief break from rehab to make her own:
“I chose to seek treatment after consulting with my manager regarding my recent use of Xanax, which was prescribed by my physician for panic attacks. There were no other people involved with me entering treatment other than my manager and myself. There was no intervention that took place. I am working in therapy every day with my doctors and therapists regarding the origin of these attacks so as not to have to rely on medications to handle it. I am paying for my own treatment; I am finding my voice here.”
This forces us to ask a very tough question: who is more trustworthy, Michael Lohan or Octomom?

Can you imagine a world in which there is any connection between someone like Michael Lohan and Octomom? It would be like a world in which there’s a connection between Amanda Bynes and Courtney Stodden, or between that crazy unpredictable friend who drinks too much from high school and that crazy unpredictable friend who drinks too much from college. It’s a world where things don’t make sense, where forces can come together and the ramifications are terrifying.
This is the world that we live in.
He failed miserably at getting Lindsay Lohan to enter rehab — but Michael Lohan was one of the main reasons Octomom is now getting help for drug abuse … because he personally arranged for her treatment program … TMZ has learned.
Michael tells us, he’s been running a nonprofit organization based in Florida for the last nine months that stages interventions for people in need of substance abuse treatment … and so far, he’s already performed over 25.
Sources close to Michael tell us, Octomom’s manager recently voiced her concerns to him about the mother of 14′s Xanax dependency — so Michael decided to take action last week, making arrangements for Octomom’s treatment program.
According to sources, Octomom’s team — with Michael’s help — then staged an intervention, and Octo agreed to get help.
Michael tells us, “The most important thing is the willingness to realize and surrender to the issue and commit to getting help, which Nadya did!”
He adds, “If it wasn’t for her manager Gina, my good friend, Tim Chapman at the Chapman house/Teen savers and Gina’s daughter, this would not have been possible. They deserve a lot of credit!”
Octo’s currently in a 30-day in-patient program, but she still gets to call her kids twice a day.
Thank you so much, Michael. You are the patron saint of making awful choices, never learning from them, and then teaching people from your mistakes that you never even understood. Never change. Unless you change in every conceivable way.

Emily told you guys earlier today that Octomom—or as some know her, Nadya Suleman—checked herself into rehab for a prescription pill addiction, but that’s not where today’s Octomom story ends. Nope. Sources are saying that Octogirl’s been out of control for awhile, and one of the casualties of her f-ckery included her eleven-year-old son, who was said to be watching her porno video on one of the sites peddling it. From TMZ:
TMZ has obtained correspondence between nanny Gina Bryson and the Orange County Dept. of Children and Family Services … in which she claims on June 28, Nadya ran to her crying, claiming she found her oldest son watching porn on his phone.
The nanny says the 11-year-old had found the website that posted his mom’s masturbation video and decided to sneak a peek. The nanny says Octo handed her the phone and asked her to block the site, but when the nanny said she needed a passcode, Octo told her to forget it.
UCK. Seriously—UCK. Tell me that is not way f-cking creepy. You know, I get that young boys (and girls) are curious or whatever when they’re starting to head through puberty, and with the rampant availability of porn on the internet coupled with an absentee mother who’s too busy capitalizing off of the fact that the looks like Angelina Jolie dipped in battery acid, I can understand that a kid might get into doing things that said kid maybe shouldn’t. But why would the same kid want to look up HIS MOTHER of all people? And don’t say curiosity, because I know that if *my* mother had a pornographic tape floating around out there, it’d be the last damn one I’d be seeking out.
Talk about one messed up family, Lord.

Nadya Suleman has checked herself into rehab for a prescription drug problem … leaving her 14 kids without a mother for 30 straight days … TMZ has learned.
A rep for Octomom tells us … Nadya admitted herself into the Chapman House Drug Rehabilitation Center in Southern California over the weekend after acknowledging she’s become dependent on Xanax … an anti-anxiety drug … which she began taking to “deal with stress.”
Suleman’s rep tells us, “Nadya wanted to get off the Xanax 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.”
As for the kids … we’re told Nadya is using 3 nannies and 2 friends to divvy up the child care duties. She also has a driver to take the kids to and from school.
Neither Nadya’s mother nor father have been tapped to care for the kids.
We’re told Nadya can afford to pay for treatment by herself — because she’s been making a ton of money from her porn career — but the rehab facility offered to pick up the tab anyway.
Well, this is kind of unexpected. Not that she went to rehab, that part’s awesome – when you’re a single mother with fourteen kids, I imagine you have to be in your best shape possible – but her drug of choice. She’s always seemed kind of unbalanced, you know, with the whole crazy pregnancy thing and all, but Xanax? I thought people who were addicted to Xanax just kind of sat there and nodded off. Is that wrong? I would have thought she was more of an uppers girl. But then again, maybe she got addicted to being chill, which would have been a problem with her before. Because she has fourteen f-cking kids.
Get well soon, girl! For real though, work on your issues because, no shame, but you’ve got a lot of them.

Right? I mean, obviously the house is new, but what about her face? It’s nothing drastic, but when the camera zooms in, it kind of looks like she got Botoxed to the max. Is that just me?
The house is nice though, so that’s good. Hopefully it will be a good long while before she has her kids pooping in the backyard again. Either way, I’m mad jealous of that playroom. Can you imagine having a playroom like that as a kid? Wouldn’t it completely blow your mind? I imagine it would be less cool having to share it with your thirteen brothers and sisters, but still.
On a completely unrelated note, I can’t even wait until this weekend to show you this picture I took of my cat:
The vet won’t neuter him until he’s nine months old. No judgement.

You see that picture? You see what Octomom is doing up there? She’s pretending to breastfeed a couple of baby dolls. Because that’s what Octomom did on Friday night: she went to a drag show in New York, popped out her titties, and breastfed baby dolls.
She also let the baby dolls get a few sips of vodka before she started her main event: a clip from her porno flick.
But hey, here’s another photo of that breastfeeding:
Where is this woman’s Mother of the Year award? Presented for her mothering of the baby dolls, of course, not her actual children.
