Washington, Mar 26 (ANI): A nurse who had been providing care for some of Nadya Suleman's octuplets has blasted the Octomum, insisting that she cares more about her own celebrity status than the welfare of her children.
While on The Dr. Phil Show Wednesday, Linda West-Conforti, the founder of Angels in Waiting, said Suleman only voluntarily fed her kids when a film crew was there, and spent too much time away from home.
"This woman does not care for these kids," People quoted West-Conforti, as saying on the talk show.
"She is in [it] for the paparazzi, the media. That is my opinion. I've been there for a week. I'm the eyes, the ears and the mouth of these little children," she added.
The nanny, who was recently fired by Octomum, said Suleman was often unreachable - or out shopping - and showed no level of interest in learning how to care for her children.
"Nadya only fed her babies ... when a film crew was in her house," West-Conforti said.
"That's the only time that woman ever volunteered to feed a child. And I tell you what happened: During one episode she was done feeding ... she picked up the child [and] gave it to me on my chest. She didn't burp it; she didn't change the diaper; [she] walked out of that room and [didn't see] her for another 12 hours," she added.
While Suleman was not on the talk show to answer back - she phoned in early to discuss why she fired the AIW nannies - her attorney Jeff Czech denied all the allegations.
"Nadya is a very good mother and a very caring mother. The bottom line is the shoe just never fit," he said of the short-lived arrangement with Angels in Waiting. (ANI)
