Nadya Suleman may have a brand new reality show to brag about, but one thing is for sure: she won’t be the only one making money off of it.
An Orange County judge appointed a guardian to examine the finances of Nadya’s 14 children, especially with this new show in the works. At a hearing yesterday, a petition was filed by Gloria Allred on behalf of child actor advocate group A Minor Consideration.
The children will each receive a paycheck for appearing on the show, and the judge wants to make sure it stays in their hands, and not in their mother’s.
According to the Associated Press, each of the kids will be paid $250 per episode. And with a three year contract, that totals $250,000 over the full course of the show. It may not seem like a lot per child, but the combined amount could have gone straight to Nadya had child protective services not stepped in.
Filming on the reality show is expected to begin September 1st. Are we ready for round two of Octomom??
