So it’s Come to This… (for Octomom)
With the rate Octomom is going, she’ll be a bonafide porn star in no time. Which is sad, as she won’t appear in my weekly media roundups. (I generally stick to a no-XXX policy, as it would be way too easy for this column to get too “inside baseball,” if you know what I mean.) So savor this while it lasts… or throw up your hands and thank god that the end is near — though I’m betting most of you are feeling both …
