Will the Nuevemom Hoax and the media obsession with Octomom give birth to more attention seekers?
Univision has just announced that ultrasound results secretly obtained show that the Nuevemom is not going to outdo the octuplets of the Octomom (Nadya Suleman) anytime soon. That is because Karla Vanessa Perez is not actually pregnant at all. A hoax devised for money, fame, or attention is all it turns out to be. Despite claims of fertility treatments to induce 9 children, her uterus is in fact empty. Octomom is surely happy the Mexican woman will not be taking the spotlight, but with the ease of embryo implants it seems that we will likely see wannabe mothers up the newborn infant count.
I think that anything that someone does that gets attention will have copycats. Octomom did and still does get a ton of media attention, and that just encourages people to do the same thing. It worked, in a way, for this other woman (though I haven't heard the story yet). People are obviously talking about her.
