ne of the newest victims of the foreclosure crisis is infamous "Octomom" Nadya Suleman, who faces eviction from her $540,000 California house if she can't make a $450,000 balloon payment. Adult entertainment company Vivid is offering a bailout of sorts, promising to pay off the balance of Suleman's house if she agrees to make a pornographic film. With 14 children to feed and shelter, should Suleman accept Vivid's offer? (Watch Wendy Williams talk about Octomom's porn possibility)

There has to be a better way: "Please, please, please" let Suleman keep her clothes on, says Christie D'Zurilla in the Los Angeles Times. Yes, she has that "new 'bikini body,'" but this isn't the right way to use it — for her, or for us. Shouldn't there be "some provision in the stimulus bill to keep this from happening"?

Making porn is the responsible thing to do, in this case: Hasn't Suleman taken enough handouts?, asks blogger Radical Mommy at MomLogic. In this economy, she should be grateful someone's offering to pay off her home for such a small price. Suleman took on the responsibility of having 14 kids, and she needs to take care of them. Besides, it's not like a few pornos will "make people look down on her more than they already do."

If Octomom goes for it, she's not alone: Vivid knows what it's doing, says Tracy Clark-Flory in Salon. "Tons of people find hopelessness extremely titillating," and Suleman is the embodiment of "total desperation." Unfortunately, in "these dark financial days," Suleman's not the only desperate woman considering a turn to the sex industry.
