TV Star Fights With Octomom, Oscar Producers Downplay Oprah's Involvement & More TV News

Kristen Johnston, Nadya SulemanWhen Octomom became a household word, people everywhere dreamed of what they'd say to Nadya Suleman, the outrageous single mom of multiples who was grabbing headlines for all the wrong reasons.

According to MSNBC, Kristen Johnston -- best known for her role on '3rd Rock From the Sun' -- got the chance on a recent flight from NYC to L.A.

Apparently Octomom was having trouble keeping her 12 children quiet, even before the flight took off, and the outspoken Johnston was not gonna put up with it for the entire cross-country trip.

Suleman's rep told E!: "Nadya and her children were in business class ... apparantly Kristen became upset and came from 1st class to tell her to keep her kids quiet. They had an altercation and Kristen got off the plane and never returned. While Nadya had help from her friend and two older children, it's not easy to travel with one two-year-old let alone eight two-year-olds on a plane. She did the best anyone could."

When Johnston complained about the noise and asked Suleman to keep it down, Octomom reportedly snapped back: "How would you like me to keep eight 2-year-olds quiet?" Johnston didn't back down, replying (what most of us are thinking): "Get more help!" Johnston then got off the plane to find a different flight back to L.A.

If you can't take care of twelve children: A. You shouldn't have been so greed to have them. B. Don't take them on a plane by yourself. Airlines should have rules governing an adult to child ratio. You can't take a dozen infants on a plane and expect the flight to go smoothly. Besides annoying the hell out of other passengers, you're putting these unsupervised kids at risk. Don't you people have any sense or is life all about your egos?

Do you have anything positive to say about anything? I mean first you bash on the kid doing the lip syncing with the Glee actors, now your bashing on a woman trying to take her children on a plane? And on top of that, what 'risk' are they at on a freaking plane? Is this plane occupied solely by people that wouldn't stop a two year old from opening the emergency doors or stewardesses that don't notice a child in front of the drink cart?

Where would Kristen Johnson even get the money to pay for a flight? Has she done anything since 3rd Rock?

I'm sorry but this is insane! How does stuff like this make news and an inspirational show like ABC's Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition get little press? I love that show and find it to be so inspirational and motivational. Weight loss expert Chris Powell is ammmmmmaaaazing. I watch it every Monday night at 10pm/9c. I cannot wait for this weeks very special episode with Wally a compulsive eater.
