OctoMom could lose her home. Nadya Suleman, aka "Octomom," may soon be handed an eviction notice. She may still be able to wrangle a new tv gig to save her skin, though -- then again, she could just bare her skin.

Porn video maker Vivid Entertainment has offered to be the knight in shiny Trojan for this mom of the longest living octoplets if she stars in one of its videos, Fox News reported. (Perhaps as "Naughty Nadya"?) Last year Vivid offered her $1 million to star in a film with eight guys and now its offering to pay off in full the remaining house loan of $450,000 -- a balloon payment that is past due, according to the financier, who is ready to begin foreclosure proceedings.
The financier, Amer Haddadin, calls himself "the kid saver" for selling the 2-story home as a contract-for-deed to Suleman's father, Ed, He told KABC News Los Angeles that the mortgage payments have been late for the past three months and he has not received any payment yet for March.

In exchange for monthly payments of $4,130, Haddadin agreed not to charge the family any interest on the cul-de-sac home until March 10, when a lump sum of $450,000 was due, according to ABC News.

The home, at 2051 Madonna Lane (fittingly!) in La Habra, Calif., was purchased by her father last year with a sizable down payment. It was last listed for $564,900 with Prudential California Realty, according to Trulia. Records show that in August 2000 the 1997-built home sold for $335,000.

If she's booted from the home, this would not be the first time Suleman has had a brush with mortgage trouble. Her mom, Angela, had fallen behind in payments for her 3-bedroom home in Whittier, Calif., for which she owed the mortgage company about $25,000 in back payments, Extra reported last year. In 2006, Angela borrowed $453,750 from IndyMac Bank, agreeing to make monthly payments on the loan, but in May 2008 she stopped making the payments and filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, claiming she had between $500,000 and $1,000,000 in liabilities. The bankruptcy case was later dismissed.

Suleman, who has 14 children including the octuplets, has starred in a TV special and made money from other personal appearances. However, her notoriety has not earned her as lucrative of a living as it has for other famous breeders, such as the Gosselins and the Duggars.

It is possible that Suleman, who leases the home from her dad, is trying to land a dating show to help pay the bills, E! News reported in February. Octomom met with execs from the Game Show Network to discuss various formats for a TV project.

Upon hearing about her financial woes, Vivid's president Steven Hirsch said in a press release, "We remain interested in working with Nadya and we're prepared to make a new offer that would secure her living arrangements by having her home fully paid for. We have sent Nadya a letter offering to sit down and work out details that would be most comfortable for her."

Who knows what deal will save the Suleman home, but I'd be surprised if it is with funds from an X-rated film, given the tongue-lashing Suleman gave Kate Gosselin after viewing photos of the bikini-clad Reality TV mom. But let's hope she works something out, for the kids' sakes.

UPDATE 03-25-10 12:30 p.m.:
PETA, the animal rights organization, has offered to pay Suleman if she lets them advertise in her yard, according to a post it put on its website. PETA special projects manager Michelle Cho sent a letter to Suleman's lawyer stating that a deal with PETA to post the sign would be a "win-win situation: It would help you and your children to keep your home and also reduce the number of homeless dogs and cats," reports LA Weekly. Suleman has signed the deal for presumably $5,000 per month of advertising, according to AOL News.
