Octomom made headlines after using her settlement money from a severe car accident to have in vitro fertilization. Normally this is not a problem, except at the time she had no job, no money other than the settlement money and she couldn’t take care of the children she already had. The procedure was deemed reckless not only towards Octomom but the doctor that carried out the procedure; the result was octuplets, making her child count at 10.
Immediately following the procedure the state of California had to flip the bill for the care of these children. She applied for and was granted welfare by the state for medicaid for the babies and children, food stamps and of course money for living.
Normally we don’t care what people do with their money or their lives but Octomom did it again. She spent a total of $500 plus dollars on a Brazilian Blowout. A Brazilian Blowout candidate is someone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair. The result after the treatment leaves hair totally frizz-free, shiny, effortlessly manageable and with plenty of body and bounce. There will still be the option to wear hair curly/wavy (depending on the hair type) and the freedom to blow dry hair smooth and straight in a fraction of the time invested prior to receiving the treatment.
What really gets me upset is that she used the tax payer money she receives from welfare to have the procedure done to her hair… again, she can’t support her children and is still begging for money to help her support her children.
If you have to be on welfare, that is fine… nobody will judge you. There are times when you need an extra hand, the key is trying to get yourself straight so you can get off the government aid. However, while you are on welfare you should be responsible. That money should go to things like food, moderate clothing for the children and yourself – not designer labels, doctors and medical bills and stuff like that. A Brazilian Blowout costing hundreds of dollars is not a necessity. Nobody will die if their hair is frizzy or unmanageable. Heck you won’t die if you lose all your hair either, just alters your appearance a bit.
This action by her was totally irresponsible because the state of California’s citizens paid for this. Taking their hard earned money, giving it to the state, to help people like her live and feed and cloth their children. She betrayed everyone.
When Brazilian Blowout got word of her treatment using welfare money, they immediately decided to make it right. They reimbursed Octomom the $500.00 treatment and vouched to provide the treatment free of charge for life; just as long as she does not spend that money on her own selfish needs again at Brazilian Blowout. Honestly, that was a great gesture because you know she would go back for another treatment.
