She’s seen the clip now, and she’s not especially pleased with the particular brand of judginess Gosselin and Dr. Phil McGraw offered up.
“Yeah, it’s really the same for everybody, huh?” Suleman tells Radar Online while watching video of Gosselin’s appearance (it should be noted, too, that Dr. Phil set a lovely tone by noting the “apparent insanity” of Suleman’s decision to keep all eight kids, saying “clearly she didn’t make the right decision”).
Suleman — who’s nonetheless following in the Gosselins’ footsteps by pitching a reality show about her and the children — grows more agitated as the clip goes on, saying “Do I have to to watch this? It’s really annoying — she reminds me of my mother.” She later adds “She has her own obvious issues, and she needs to stop making judgments toward me. She doesn’t even know me.”
“My children are extremely healthy, strong and happy,” Suleman concludes. “Don’t you have, like, a lot of issues in your life? A lot of marital problems? Why are you trying so desperately to glom onto my life? For attention?”
