Allred Knows Best: Files Petition for Octo-Guardian
|Paul Petersen and Gloria Allred|
Octorazzi, the L.A. Newspaper Group's OctoMom blog, is all over Gloria Allred's lawsuit that claims Nadya Suleman's eight infants need a conservator to safeguard their financial interests, now that Suleman appears closer to getting her own reality TV show. Octorazzi writer Raul Roa reports that Allred announced today she is also looking into securing a financial guardian for Suleman's six older children. She filed the petition in Orange County, where Suleman and her 14 children live.
Suleman released a statement to RadarOnline that said, in part:
"I feel like as though many, many, many, many people in this society are trying to distract me from taking care of my babies. And I'm gonna continue to live in my baby bubble with my kids. And whoever wants a piece of me or the babies, keep on trying. That's all I have to say."
Allred held the press conference in her L.A. office this morning. Joining her was former child actor Paul Petersen of The Donna Reed Show, who is president of A Minor Consideration, an advocacy group for child actors and workers. Allred filed the suit on behalf of Petersen's organization. City News Service quotes Allred's claim that Suleman can avoid a June 22 hearing if she voluntarily agrees to the financial guardianship of her eight youngest children.
