Octomom is on the skids: Things have gotten so tight for Nadya Suleman that not only did she give the world topless pictures that no one ever, ever wanted to see, she is now officially on welfare. And it seems that many a California taxpayer is incensed at the prospect of Suleman and her tribe of 14 kids taking public assistance, because TMZ reports that since it broke the story, Suleman has received scads of angry phone calls and even death threats. A typical sentiment: "Die, b****. I’m not working for your f***ing kids, you’re the one that wanted them." Suleman, for the record, qualifies for $2,000 a month in public assistance because her household makes less than $119,000 a year. (More Nadya Suleman stories.)
