Nadya SulemanNBC has announced that Nadya Suleman, a.k.a. "Octomom," will take part in her first-ever live TV interview Friday morning. Suleman will sit down with Ann Curry on NBC's 'Today' together with her two-year old octuplets and her two oldest children.

'Today' will also air Suleman's first at-home TV intervew since the octuplets were babies. The mom of 14 gave Amy Robach an up-close look into her La Habra, Ca. home, which has visibly deteriorated, and revealed what life is like in the house.

Portions of Robach's interview will air Thursday morning, with the full interview airing Friday. The much-critcized single mother told Robach, "I don't want to undo 14 kids. I love every single one of my children. I will for the rest of my life. I will die for them."

All of Suleman's children were born after she separated from her (now) ex-husband, and all were conceived through in vitro fertilization from a sperm donor. She opened up to Robach about raising her children alone, about dating and her thoughts on men, and about what she wants for her future.

TMZ
recently reported that she made $28,000 in one month thanks to her reality TV work and paid interviews. Discussing her financial situation, Suleman told Robach: "Everything I do, any kind of work, any kind of money I generate -- where does it go? It goes into their mouths or it goes into the house or it goes into their school. Their private school is twice as much as the mortgage. The goal in life for us -- one of our main goals -- a priority, is to buy a home and I would earn it. I want to work for it, and I want to buy it myself."

"My job as a responsible parent is to constantly protect [my children]," she added. "And unfortunately, as a result of hundreds of death threats that I started to receive over two years ago, directed towards me and my kids, it started to boil and bubble into panic attacks. So starting last summer about a year ago, I started having panic attacks, and I didn't want to leave the house. I'd go to the market, and I couldn't leave the car."

'Today' airs weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC.

What a horrible, horrible person who exploits her own children. The only good thing you can say about her is at least she isn't Casey Anthony.

Not going to watch anything with this woman in/on it. This is kind of low class for Ann to be covering for TODAY and I bet it will be some sympathetic drivel. I'll just be watching GMA instead.
