Octo-Granddad Tells Oprah He's Not Happy With NBC

Says daughter was bombarded with cameras

OctoMom's father is none too happy with NBC.

The grandfather of eight children recently born to the California woman told Oprah Winfrey his daughter was "under completely disarray" when she gave an interview to NBC's Ann Curry.
Ed Doud said during Tuesday's episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" that NBC bombarded Nadya Suleman with cameras and took her out of the hospital at midnight to a secret location. Doud says NBC "did not even give her a chance to rest, to sleep, where she's still under medication and not feeling well."

Winfrey asked Doud if his daughter did the interview "under duress." He answered, "That's how I feel."

NBC said in a statement today that the network didn't take Suleman from the hospital. NBC also says the interview was conducted with respect and took place at a time of her choosing.
Suleman is a 33-year-old single mother. She already had six children when she gave birth to the octuplets in late January after undergoing in vitro fertilization. She is unemployed and lives with her mother in a three-bedroom home.
