Kate Gosselin hilariously criticizes octuplets mom for having too many kids

Pot, meet kettle. Kate Gosselin, who parlayed the birth of sextuplets into a cottage industry of TV contracts, DVDs, best-selling books, personal chefs, a new $1 million home, etc., thinks the California woman who recently gave birth to octuplets will bring misery to her family "ranging from resentment of the complete chaos and lack of attention the older six will now receive."Kate, who only had two kids before she and her henpecked hubby Jon turned to fertility drugs to add to the brood, said octuplets mom Nadya Suleman faces "unimaginable" hardships...unless, of course, Nadya lands a lucrative TV deal and other assorted perks and freebies.

Excerpts from the interview:
Q: Do you think Nadya did the right thing in having these octuplets, after already having six children?

Kate: I believe that every life that is created has a purpose. However, personally, I would never have set out to even have a seventh child -- especially if I was a single parent!

Q: Nadya is not married, and there's no father that we know of. Is this a problem?
Kate: Absolutely. The workload that Jon and I share is often even too much for us! It is unimaginable the amount of work she will have to bear as a single mother raising eight preemies as well as six other children.

Q: Do you think Nadya is cognizant of what's in store for her?
Kate: No. I can honestly say that no amount of planning ahead prepared me for what I faced. And in comparison, I had 3-year-old twins and six preemies . . . And a helpful husband. And we struggled in every way -- physically, emotionally and financially.

At least until The Learning Channel came around. After some medical mumbo-jumbo about the differences in which the two mothers conceived multiple births, Kate goes on to vow, "I can honestly say that I will never have another child"
