Octomom Cleans Up the Floor With Kate Gosselin

In last Wednesday's Fox TV "special" Octomom: The Incredible Unseen Footage, Nadya Suleman takes potshots at Jon & Kate Plus 8's Jon-less, down-on-her-luck Kate Gosselin.

"It's so staged," Octomom said of tabloid pictures of Gosselin in a bikini on the beach. "She's doing it to get people to take pictures of her. ... I feel like it's cheating [to get a tummy-tuck]. It's her choice. If she has enough money to fix herself, let her. I have a better shape, though. I'm sorry, no offense to her. I'm not as attention-seeking." 

The real smackdown came with the release of the national television ratings, and once again La Habra's biggest celebrity got the best of Gosselin.

The Nielsen service says 4.2 million viewers watched Octomom and her 14 kids compared to 3 million for Jon & Kate Plus 8 (Minus Jon?). Of course, both litter-producers were smoked by America's Got Talent, which drew a whopping 10 million viewers that night.

As for critical acclaim, the New York Times said Octomom: The Incredible Unseen Footage "failed to produce a second's worth of contrarian evidence that Nadya Suleman isn't a self-obsessed, publicity-driven lunatic."

But the best comment came from someone commenting to Nikki Dowling's anti-Octomom post on the celebrity gossip site "I've never regretted the fact that we cancelled cable," wrote "bravo287."
