Nadya Suleman, known colloquially, infamously, as the Octomom, made yet another appearance on the TODAY show Wednesday morning -- this time, to address the latest death threats she received at her home in La Harba, CA.

In an exclusive interview, Nadya spoke candidly about an ominous note she received over the weekend that read, simply: "Leave California or die." (See the letter on TMZ.)

"My daughter found it and then when we read it, I was so terrified, I threw it out," she confessed, adding that she fished it out of trash later.

Nadya says this is the latest of "thousands" of death threats she's received since she became pregnant with octuplets through in-vitro fertilization, in 2008 -- a pregnancy that quickly made headlines around the globe.

"[The note] kind of exacerbated my anxiety and my fear of being out in the public, so I don't really go out often. If I do, I'll wear a wig or I'll disguise myself," she said.

Out of the spotlight for about a year, give or take, Nadya recently returned to the headlines in March when she posed nude for the British magazine Closer. The 36-year-old mother-of-14, who later told Celebuzz that she looked "corpse-like" in the photos, reportedly made $10,000 for the one-time gig, all so she could feed her kids and pay her bills.

Now, Nadya says the death threats are back, adding it's "highly possible" that they are directly correlated to her recent media appearances, and her reveal that she's on food stamps.

Still, despite the death threats and the negative press, Nadya insists her 14 children (yes, 14) are in the right hands. "They could never have a better home. A better home, physically, yes; we're going to be moving. But they could never have a better mother," she said.

Nadya, who admitted last week that she receives $2,000 per-month in foodstamps, also says she's open to doing a reality show. "I'm very open-minded to doing any type of reality show. But I'm planning on getting off completely the food stamps -- all of it -- within a month," she said.

    I have been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours these days, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It's beautiful value enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the internet will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.

    I do NOT agree with her ever being a heroine but I strongly agree with "I think she’s a lazy, greedy, unintelligent, useless thieving tramp who uses her babies to steal from the public. She definitely has histrionic personality disorder." Didn't want to confuse anyone with a thumbs up, sorry.

    The hair extensions, really? You get a death threat, "throw it in the garbage" lol call TMZ & go on a media tour, the Police contact YOU & would like to have the "death threat", you doon't know where it is? Duh, you gave it to TMZzzz. What do YOU do to protect your 14 kids? Why, you get hair ext. that make you look worse than Morticia Adams, eyelash ext., botox, Restylane & tons of makeup & do a media circus! YOU wrote the note & maybe one of your kids accidently broke the window. There is so much wrong with you Octomom but for God's sake, pretend to care about your kids...

    They discovered the note and threw it out? What person allows a 10 yo to see a note like that and throw it out?Even a kid knows to call the cops, she calls them everytime she saw someoen in her cul-de-sac in years past, why not now? She says the house is bad? That was a beautiful home til she and her family destroyed it, she showed us all a tour before they moved in, check it out.

    i think nadya has many issues. her children are just an extension of her issues. we don't choose our parents. sadly, the government has to pay for her choices. but in all fairness, the government does this for many. why single her out when many of us are guilty as well. she's a hot mess of confssion and delusion, leave her be and move on.

    When she was earning her own money, I thought she was a heroine. Now that she's on welfare, I think she's a lazy, greedy, unintelligent, useless thieving tramp who uses her babies to steal from the public. She definitely has histrionic personality disorder.
