Porn war breaks out over octuplets' mother

"The mother of octuplets born last month in California was targeted by rival bids from adult entertainment companies Thursday, including an offer of one million dollars to star in a porn movie.

Los Angeles-based Vivid Entertainment, the world's largest adult film producer, announced that it had offered Suleman one million dollars plus a year of health insurance if the unemployed 33-year-old starred in a porn movie.

"There is a tremendous amount of interest in Nadya and we can help her capitalize on that interest and put some real cash in her bank account," said Vivid co-chairman Steven Hirsch.

But rival porn company Pink Visual has responded by urging Suleman not to participate in the Vivid movie -- and offered her a year's supply of diapers for her octuplets if she turns down the offer.

Pink Visual's manager Kim Kysar said in a letter to Suleman that the company's offer was being made as a gesture of "social responsibility."
"It simply isn't in your best interest, and more importantly, in the best interest of your children, for you to become a porn star," Kysar wrote.

"As you know, there's a great deal of stigma attached to being a porn star. It's not something that a mother should take lightly, as this decision will most assuredly affect the lives of your children, and not in a positive way."

"It's not a million dollars but accepting our offer will directly benefit your children in two ways: they will be assured of having clean, dry diapers and their mother will not become the subject of endless ridicule," Kysar wrote.

Her case has provoked outrage from health experts and the public after it emerged the babies were conceived through in vitro fertilization and that Suleman already had six children under the age of seven.
