All of the haters who believe Nadya Suleman should have her kids taken away got a glimmer of hope yesterday. Suleman, aka Octomom, received a visit from the police with the department of family and children's services in tow. This after one of the mother of 14's confidantes rolled on her. According to TMZ, Suleman's hairstylist Stephanie notified officials that big brood's living conditions are absolutely deplorable. Among the charges she levied was that there was only one functioning toilet in the house. Some of the younger children were using training toilets in their bedrooms and the backyard. In addition, she says the kids are dirty and seem like they're not receiving proper nourishment. While getting her hair done, the overwhelmed 36-year-old even propped a chair against the bedroom door to keep them locked inside. Based on the allegations, a cop and three DCF employees paid the struggling single mom a visit. Sources tell TMZ that although officials determined the kids were not in danger, they plan on following up. TMZ also got its hands on shocking photos of the nasty living conditions that show piles of laundry, graffiti, as well as the kids going to the bathroom on the training potties outside. A handful of the kids aren't even wearing pants. Octo's hairdresser reveals to police that although one bedroom shows two cribs and a mattress, some of the children sleep on the floor. Stephanie tells TMZ, "The kids are in desperate need of help, and I tried to help and she's not open to anyone helping her."
