Actress Kristen Johnston, best known for her role in the late '90s sitcom "3rd Rock from the Sun" was in for a big surprise when she boarded a Los Angeles-bound plane Friday night: the 12-kid Octomom brood.

Johnston, 43, did not take kindly to the noise Nadya Suleman's many children made on the flight, E! Online reports. As mechanical problems caused a two-hour delay, Johnson, who was seated in first class, complained about the noise the family, who was seated in business class, was making.

"How would you like me to keep eight 2-year-olds quiet"? Suleman, 34, is reported to have said, according to E!

"Get more help!" Johnston snapped back.

"Why don't you grow a baby and get a life!" the Octomom reportedly shouted.

Johnston then stormed off the plane, according to E!

Suleman's representative confirmed the incident and asked people to empathize with her client, E! reported.

"While Nadya had help from her friend and two older children, it's not easy to travel with one 2-year-old let alone eight 2-year-olds on a plane. She did the best anyone could," the rep said.

Suleman and family had traveled to New York to appear on "The Today Show," where the octuplets wandered around the set, the Daily Mail reported.
