This Biznatch Gets ANOTHER Job!

I bet that Jon & Kate chica schooled her in all the ways to exploit her bazillion kids on television, because OCTOMOM is getting her own reality show!!

Describing the as-yet untitled show as a “quasi-reality TV series”, Czech [her lawyer] said that the production company, Eyeworks, was moving ahead to make a deal with a network.

“They might be several shows aired during a year. There are all kinds of possibilities. It really depends on what the networks want,” her lawyer said.

Czech declined to comment on how much Nadya would be getting paid for the deal, citing confidentiality.

“Her television program will not be like the Jon and Kate Plus 8 show,” said Czech. “[Nadya] is looking forward to providing her side of the story.”

Oh Like This Is a Huge Shock

Delaware a “tax haven” really?!

I’ve been on the Amtrak going through that tiny state and seriously every credit card company and bank has a building within a two mile radius of the city center. The New York Times reports that the Obama administration will likely crack down on this well-known tax loophole, like they have been doing with those “offshore tax havens” such as the Cayman Islands.

Hurry get your monaaay out quick!

Quote of the Day

“You better find a full-time job before you regret your life.”
-My dad

Dear Dad,

A few things:

A. I didn’t ask to be born. You’re the one who had sex with my mother and produced me.

B. It’s not like I’m sitting around trying to be unemployed. I would LOVE to have a full-time job. Unfortunately, that isn’t in my hands.

C. Why couldn’t you have worked harder so you could be friends with people who can give me a job? Unlike many other people, I’ve had to climb the ladder on my own.

D. Even better, why didn’t you strike it rich so I wouldn’t have to work?

So if I don’t find a full-time job soon, what am I supposed to do? Regret my life and kill myself? I actually know many people who do have full-time jobs who are miserable. I’m actually much happier not being chained to a corporation who doesn’t give a sh*t about me.

Love,

You daughter

Geeze. Sometimes parents just don’t understand.

FAO Schwarz Gobbled Up By Giant Giraffe

big-piano

Today the legendary toy store FAO Schwarz was sold off to mega-retailer Toys R Us, according to Crain’s New York Business. Toys R Us said that it will continue to keep the New York and Las Vegas stores open under the FAO name. Yes we can keep the giant light up piano!

“This was probably one of the only ways to save FAO Schwarz,” said toy industry analyst Chris Byrne. “It solidifies Toys ‘R’ Us as the leading specialty toy retailer in the nation, and it adds a jewel in their crown—they’ll get more specialty brands.”

FAO will likely help Toys ‘R’ Us reach more shoppers. Though the retailer carries a hefty debt load—around $5.4 billion in current long-term debt—it has been holding its own through the downturn. Toys ‘R’ Us’ total net sales were down only 0.5% for 2008 to about $13.7 billion, and the company earned $218 million for the year, compared with $153 million in 2007.
