Nadya Suleman and her very large family are close to wrapping a deal for their own reality show, according to People.com.

The mother of 14 and her lawyer have been talking to various production companies about creating a show that might provide a solid income with which she could care for the children, the Web site reports.


"There's some decisions for her to make over the next few days," attorney Jeffrey Czech tells People.com. "I think she's heard enough ... Like anyone else, she wants to be portrayed in a positive light and she feels she needs to do something to get her side out."

According to the report, producers have expressed interest in following some of the daily chores associated with Suleman's extraordinary home life, from holidays to dating to driving a car big enough to transport all 14 kids.

Seven of Suleman's octoplets have come home, but the smallest child, Jonah, still remains under observation in the hospital as he weighs just 4 lbs., 6 oz. While negotiations are reportedly progressing toward a possible deal in the next few weeks, filming would not begin until the babies have grown a bit older, according to People.com.

In February and March, Nielsen reported giant ratings spikes for the "Dateline," "Dr. Phil" and "Oprah" broadcasts that included segments about the so-called "Octo-mom" story.
