Unlike some of her former castmates, Farrah Abraham hasn’t spent much time out of the public eye since her days on “Teen Mom.” She’s written two books (a memoir, “My Teenage Dream Ended,” and a children’s e-book, “Passy Perfume“), released a signature brand of hot pepper pasta sauce and, on the opposite end of the spectrum, caused much controversy by starring in a highly publicized sex tape, which has become the central topic of many group and individual counseling sessions throughout her stint on the current season of VH1’s “Couples Therapy.”
“Making a sex tape changed the course of my life forever, but some of my biggest challenges have been my greatest teachers,” the 22-year-old said in last night’s “Being Farrah.” “I live without regret.”
In the one-hour follow-up special, we saw how public criticism has taken its toll on the young mother, who recently relocated her family to Austin, Texas, where she’s trying to function as a normal person away from the flash bulbs of the paparazzi. In between media interviews and club appearances, Farrah strives to be home as much as possible so she can do “typical” mom things, like take her daughter Sophia to pre-school and dance classes.
Farrah lives an unconventional life, but on the show, she adamantly denied being a “porn star,” and seemed to long for the stability of a healthy, romantic relationship. Still, how easy will it be for her to find a good guy who is okay with her foray into adult films? Time will tell. In the meantime, she’s only concerned with the opinion of one person: her daughter.
“I don’t know if Sophia will understand my choices,” Farrah admitted, “but I hope one day she knows everything I’ve done has been to support us.”
