She's got 14 children to care for, but Nadya Suleman is taking some time to sort out her own problems. According to reports, Suleman, aka Octomom, has checked into a rehab centre to seek help for a prescription drug problem. TMZ.com has reported that Octomom checked herself into the Southern Californian Chapman House Drug Rehabilitation Centre over the weekend. A spokesperson for Octomom told the website that she had become too dependent on the anti-anxiety medication Xanax, which she had been taking to help her "deal with stress". The website quotes the spokesperson as saying: "Nadya wanted to get off the Xanax she was prescribed by her doctor and learn to deal with her stress, exhaustion and anxiety with professional help with a team of doctors. She wanted to deal with her issues and make sure she is the best mother she can be." While Octomom is being treated in rehab, she has reportedly employed a team of three nannies, and two friends to help look after her children - dividing up duties including transporting the massive brood to and from school. TMZ also claim that Octomom is not paying for the treatment herself, as the rehab centre has offered to pick up the bill.

'I chased my career instead of chasing guys'

With her glamorous career as a TV presenter, not to mention her own reality show, Giuliana Rancic has much to envy. But following a very public battle with infertility, she has revealed she had no idea pursuing her dreams of a career would jeopardise her hopes of having a family. The 38-year-old was 35 when she and husband Bill began trying for a family — but had already left it too late. "I always say how I chased my career instead of chasing guys," she reveals in the November issue of the US magazine Health. "And everybody was patting me on the back. No one ever told me, 'Oh, by the way, your eggs change when you reach a certain age.' I didn't think 35 was old! So when the doctor said, 'It's not as easy as you thought it would be,' it was a real blow. Because I felt so young."

As she explained, she thought she was in perfect health. "I mean, this is a girl who was running six miles a day and eating healthy, so how can you tell me that I'm not healthy in that department?" Rancic admitted she found it tough to see others around her seemingly falling pregnant with ease. She said she experienced jealousy, thinking: "I'm a good person, and I could give someone the greatest life of all, but yet I can't get pregnant." Her wish to have a child had a happy ending, however, when she and husband Bill, 41, finally welcomed their son Edward Duke on August 30 through surrogate.

Kerr stuns in racy shoot

She is one of the sexiest women in the world, and Miranda Kerr has credited her flirty nature for her sizzling photoshoots. The 29-year-old Victoria's Secret beauty and wife of Orlando Bloom has shown off her stunning figure again — posing seductively for the December issue of Esquire magazine. The arty shots by photographer David Slijper see her flashing her fabulous-looking legs as she wears just underwear and a coat. Kerr has no problem with the racy photoshoots, insisting she has always embraced her looks. Asked about fulfilling male fantasies as a Victoria's Secret Angel, she said: 'We always have so much fun when we shoot and my temperament's flirtatious, so it's second nature to me. I believe in celebrating the female figure and embracing what we've been given, not hiding that."
