"Octomom" Nadya Suleman and her 14 children could avoid being evicted from their suburban home if the mortgage holder cuts a deal with a porn kingpin.
After giving Suleman repeated warnings to pay the $450,000 that's due or get out, Amer Haddadin said he's now considering an offer from Vivid Entertainment co-founder Steve Hirsch to foot the bill.
Suleman has repeatedly declined Hirsch's offers - $1 million at one point - to appear in porn videos.
Haddadin says half a million dollars is nothing to Hirsch, whose company is one of the biggest pornography companies based in California's San Fernando Valley.

"I am open to any option that (allows me to) finish with this matter," Haddadin said.
Hirsch told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he's not trying to pressure Suleman into porn, but he would use her housing woes to start a conversation that brings her to work for Vivid.
Hirsch said Suleman could keep her clothes on and work as a Vivid representative, a role similar to a master of ceremonies, welcoming people to Vivid parties.
The work could help cover Suleman's monthly costs, Hirsch said. Associated Press
Deen will show off parade wave
Paula Deen is out of her element. Instead of a kitchen, the Food Network's Southern-cooking queen was holding court Thursday in a lavish hotel suite. And instead of being home for the holidays in Savannah, Ga., she's ringing in the new year serving as grand marshal of today's Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, Calif.
"I have rehearsed my wave," she announced, with a playful grin. "They informed me that there are four or five different waves. One is the figure eight. One is the queen. One is screwing in a light bulb. But, would you like me to show you the Paula Deen wave?"
Deen then raised both arms in the air, shook them frantically, and laughed long, loud and hard.
"I am not going to be able to be that regal and calm about it," she added, smiling. Associated Press
