A war of words erupted on a Los Angeles-bound flight on Friday between Nadya Suleman (aka Octomom) and former "3rd Rock From the Sun" actress Kristen Johnston.

TMZ reports that the mom was flying with her mega-large brood of 12, taking up nearly the entire business class section on a flight from New York.

The flight was delayed for more than two hours, and her large gaggle of children weren't having any of it. That's when Johnston stepped in. The actress asked Octomom to keep her children quiet, to which Nadya implored: "How would you like me to keep eight 2-year-olds quiet?"

Johnston's response? "Get more help!" At that, Octomom told the actress, whom she claims she didn't know was famous at the time (would that have changed anything?), "Why don't you grow a baby and get a life?"

Johnston returned to her seat but at one point, according to Suleman's rep, got off the plane and didn't return.

Upon landing, Suleman told TMZ that she didn't know Johnton was a celebrity, saying "I guess there's some people that don't like kids."

According to the Examiner, Octomom's rep told the outlet: "Nadya and her children were in business class, apparently Kristen became upset and came from 1st class to tell her to keep her kids quiet. They had an altercation and Kristen got off the plane and never returned. While Nadya had help from her friend and two older children, it's not easy to travel with one two-year-old let alone eight two-year-olds on a plane. She did the best anyone could."

Last month, it was reported that Malaysia Airlines was considering banning babies from first class. In an AOL-conducted poll, 78% of readers said they agreed with that airline's right to do so. It turns out Suleman may even hate her own kids. Check out the video below.

This is why we shouldn't have more children than we're able to care for. She wanted a pack of kids but now everyone in her vicinity gets to be tortured by her lack of ability to control them. I wouldn't want to be her neighbor.
If she wasn't mentally ill she couldn't possibly raise this many children propertly, instilling in them morals, confidence and a sense of well being.....what chance do these children have in life? The children really should have been taken away as infants before they had bonded with this lunatic.

Some one needs to cement that hole between her legs shut. She should have all her children taken away from her and she should be placed in a spiked cell.

This lady needs to be fixed. It's a shame they don't take her out and shoot her but I guess that wouldn't be fair to the kids. I imagine we all will be supporting this woman and her kids util their 18 , then probably longer after most of them end up in prison, or start spitting kids out on their own. Shame these poor kids don't have a chance. This lady belongs in jail for child abuse, and so does the doctor who helped her. She only had these kids because she thought she'd get famous like jon and kate.

Seriously, to say that a mother, (even a mom of 122 exaggeration intentional) "hates" her kids just goes to show how very little the "gossip" media actually cares about journalistic integrity

I feel for Kristen Johnston. If "Octomom" wants to take her out-of-control circus on the road she should be required to fly privately chartered flights.

I am sure Suleman was paid enough by NBC to have gotten two more chaperones for her kids. That had to be the flight from Hell. I'm glad Kriston Johnson spoke up, although I doubt this happened mid flight like it was said, because Kriston could not have walked off the plane. Just saying.

How does an "unemployed" mother of 8 travel business class? i came from a family of 5, i first flew on a plane when i was 24 and both my parents worked. business class and first class are premium seats for the affluent and business traveler. kids have no business being in either section. when mine were little i'd never even dream of putting them in a position where they would offend or interrupt a fellow traveler, especially a person that needed the time to prepare or work while in flight. i understand eight 2 year olds is alot. maybe a different mode of travel to might work out better for the sake of the kids comfort.
