Suleman had been charged with four felony counts stemming from $26,000 in welfare payments she took while also pocketing dough from the vids and personal appearances. Her attorney, Arthur J. LaCilento, said Suleman has reimbursed Uncle Sam the full amount.
Instead of jail time, LaCilento said she will do 200 hours of community service, spend two years on probation and pay what he described as a "small fine."
Suleman, of course, became an overnight sensation in 2008 by birthing eight babies from one pregnancy. The kids became the world's longest-surviving octuplets and Suleman's ticket to fame.
Like her six older children, the octuplets were conceived via in-vitro fertilization.
Out on a limb
In other reality-TV nonsense, the buzz along the Rialto is that next Tuesday's episode of "Real Housewives of New York" features what might be a television first: the use of an artificial leg as an airborne weapon.
The show is expected to feature a battle royal among all the cast members at Gotham's famous Le Cirque restaurant that climaxes with Housewife Aviva Drescher getting so agitated that she removes her prosthetic limb and chucks it across the dining room.
An unnamed source told pagesix.com that "during a wild argument" among the cast, "Aviva yells, 'What do you want from me? To crawl out of here?' All the while, she's shimmying out of her prosthetic leg under the table." She then "throws it, in front of a crowd of shocked people."
Perhaps the most astounding thing is that this occurred last fall, but witnesses signed nondisclosure agreements and have kept mum all these months.
Not so for a Bravo promo for this season that hinted at the limb-tossing with an unexplained shot of a detached, high-heel-shod leg lying on the ground.
Drescher lost her leg in a childhood accident she chronicled in her autobio, Leggy Blonde.
Party time at Hilton's
It was a real swingin' (as in fists) affair this weekend at the Malibu Beach house Paris Hilton is renting.
The we-never-sleep team at TMZ reports that cops were called to the $65,000-a-month (that's no typo!) shack in the wee hours of Sunday morning following a report that former "Baywatch" hunk Jeremy Jackson had been severely beaten by other guests during a party.
Per TMZ, Jackson told police that Hilton, Brandon Davis (son of late zillionaire oilman Marvin Davis) and others "were literally going Rodney King on my ass," and that he was also hit with a liquor bottle allegedly wielded by Paris' bud, actress Jasmine Waltz. Hilton's brother Barron wound up in the hospital getting stitches, too.
A Hilton rep claimed that only "five or six people" were at the bash when Jackson arrived uninvited. Told he wasn't on the guest list, he reportedly asked the eternal minor-celeb question: "Don't you know who I am?"
He added, helpfully, "I was on 'Baywatch.' And 'Celebrity Rehab.' "
No charges were pressed.
But Temp Tattle can envision a future Jasmine Waltz endorsement deal for a booze maker that goes something like: "I don't usually hit people with liquor bottles, but when I do . . ."
Call her JMomm?
