Octo-Mom Nadya Suleman expresses even more regret for trying to raise 14 kids on her own in a two-hour special that aired on FOX Wednesday night.

"I screwed up my life, and I screwed up my kids' lives," says Suleman, who recently told Us Weekly "it was a mistake" having so many kids without a father figure.

"What the heck am I going to do...I have to put on a strong facade," continues Suleman in the documentary, which consists of mostly RadarOnline footage repackaged by the producer of American Chopper, Craig Piligain. (Suleman says her kids received a "six figure" account as payment.)

Her mother, Angela, chides Suleman, saying she can't "frivolously keep procreating."

Cameras also trail Suleman as she gets a tattoo with 14 stars (one for each kid), talks about how her house may be haunted, calls 911, frets that she can't trust her nanny and displays paranoia that her kids may be kidnapped. Suleman also takes a stab at another mom of multiples, Kate Gosselin, for having a tummy tuck and then flaunting her bikini bod. (The footage first aired on Radar last June.)

"Honestly, I'm not as attention seeking, probably never, it's just my opinion, but some people are desperate for attention," Suleman says of Gosselin. Suleman admits she hasn't been intimate with a man for nearly 10 years. "As time kept going on and on, and the more kids I have, the less I remembered what it was like," she says of sex.
