(Newser) – A psychiatrist who has never met Nadya Suleman has filed a formal complaint against the mother of 14 with LA County’s child-welfare department TMZ reports. The doc, who frequently appears on talk shows, alleges Suleman “is not stable enough” and is putting her kids, including her newborn octuplets, “in psychological and physical danger.”

Carole Lieberman also claims Suleman is “exploiting her children,” but at least she won’t be doing that on TLC—the network is not pursuing a reality show about the family, Us reports. The network president had said a show was under consideration but later backtracked. And the family website, which Suleman was using to solicit donations, was recently shut down as well.
