In 2009, Nadya Suleman didn't want people to look at her. These days,… (Nick Ut / Associated Press )
Even in this economy, Nadya Suleman, a.k.a. the “Octomom,” continues to find work, albeit with a killer commute: The La Habra mama has booked a stripper gig at a gentleman’s club in Florida.
Next week, Suleman will perform seven times over four days at T’s Lounge in West Palm Beach, according to the club’s website. And yes, the mother of octuplets, twins and a handful of other tykes “will appear topless at some point during her show,” her rep told CNN on Monday.
What audiences can expect during the rest of the show was unclear — though perhaps that’s for the best.
“This is not a new career for her,” the rep said. Rather, Suleman will be going topless to promote her other not-a-new-career in solo porn.
Octo’s newest employer has a decent industry reputation, at least according to Forbes, which noted Tuesday that T’s previously welcomed the talents of Long Island Lolita Amy Fisher, Jesse James paramour Michelle “Bombshell” McGee, and Joslyn James, the Tiger Woods mistress who really, really, really wanted an apology from the golfer because he supposedly told her he loved her.
In addition to spotlight gals like the Octomom, T’s lounge also offers “fully nude beautiful ladies” and “full friction lap dances,” plus “there’s never a cover charge for any military personnel.”
Fans who can’t make it to Florida next week can get a taste of what they’ll be missing thanks to a photo posted by Jessica Drake, a Wicked Pictures performer who coached Nadya through her adult-film debut.
“I am honored to have helped her explore her sexuality ...," Drake said Tuesday in a statement released by Wicked, which will distribute the as-yet-untitled, um, effort. "Nadya is truly beautiful, and I'm so glad her first experience in our industry was so fulfilling.”
The movie will feature a number of Octomom-on-Octomom vignettes taking "playful aim" at aspects of Suleman's public persona, Wicked said.
Meanwhile, Vivid Entertainment’s Steve Hirsch is offering some fully clothed work — at a rather obscene pay rate: He's offering Suleman $1,000 a day to work as a production assistant on one of his upcoming adult film shoots.
"Let me be clear, you will not have to perform sex and no nudity is required,” Hirsch wrote in the offer letter, posted Tuesday by TMZ. (And really, who doesn’t insist on that kind of clarity when considering a new gig? This is, however, coming from the guy who offered to settle her mortgage in exchange for a hard-core porn performance a while back, so maybe he has to be specific.)
Though Suleman filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection at the end of April, the case was thrown out last month, L.A. Now reported, after she missed a May 14 deadline to complete paperwork showing she couldn’t pay her debts.
Single-mom Suleman, of course, has 14 young mouths to feed and is almost a year behind on her mortgage payments. The planned foreclosure sale of her La Habra home has been delayed yet again — that’s five postponements — leaving note-holder Amer Haddaddin among those frustrated on the steps of City Hall in Orange last week.
