Suleman is also selling some items on eBay, including a signed sonogram of her octuplets.
She says she's in financial trouble and needs to come up with a way to support her family.
"I could have taken that 'Octomom' fictional character name that was invented in the media and made millions," she said. "Instead, I was afraid and lost and confused and I ended up getting more and more lost, so we're here."
Suleman said she needs to pay $450,000 in two weeks to save her house.
In all, she has 14 children.
