Former Teen Mom OG star Farrah Abraham out Farrah-ed herself this week when she sat down with Us Weekly this week to reflect on the sex talk she had with 12-year-old daughter Sophia, why she’s teaching Sophia that it’s “fun” to pee on pregnancy tests, social media trolls, ‘Teen Mom’ money and more.
To save your ears from the sweet, sweet sound of Farrah Speak, The Ashley has taken one for the team and is giving you the five weirdest statements from Farrah’s interview.
Buckle up. It’s about to get weird…even by “Farrah” standards.
1. “ … I don’t want any young ladies to be misled about their health, you guys deserve amazing bodies. You want to feel good. You want to be competent. You should play around with the fun pregnancy tests. Pee on it. And wow – you’re not pregnant!”
This was Farrah’s take on the importance of talking to Sophia about sex now that the 12-year-old has gone through puberty. (Naturally, Farrah had to announce this personal fact to the world because….Farrah.)
As for the “fun pregnancy test” comment, that was in reference to the controversial pregnancy test photo she allowed Sophia to post on social media last month.
Farrah claimed the company sent the tests to her – Farrah, not Sophia – because they were going to do a collaboration. She defended her decision to let Sophia participate in the almost-collaboration, stating that “when tweens go through puberty, they need to learn, first of all, about pregnancy tests.”
2. “I’m fun. Like, who wouldn’t be OK with talking about sex with me?”
Farrah had this to say when asked how Sophia felt about Farrah’s version of the sex talk… but let’s all take a moment to remember Sophia calling out her mom last year on the pair’s Abraham Gals podcast.
During an episode last summer, Sophia begged Farrah to stop talking about her pubescent milestones in interviews. That being said, we’re going to assume Sophia feels the same way about her mom recounting sex talk stories to anyone that will listen as she does about her mom talking about body hair/personal hygiene.
3. “ … Do you want to make a kid have suicide? I don’t know what we’re doing there.”
Farrah presented this slice of Farrah Speak when talking about “other mothers of children who, I guess want to bully” or “talk negatively.” She stated that she is worried about kids who might “have suicide.”
Farrah mentioned that she’s quick to “block, block, block” the creeps and haters that frequent her daughter’s social media.
“I do get mad when I see grown adult men messaging my daughter,” she told Us Weekly. “I got a big problem with that…”
Farrah says she solves this problem by monitoring Sophia’s direct messages on The ‘Gram.
She didn’t, however, cop to any of her own problematic social media antics…
(Yes, that’s Farrah hitting Sophia in the head with a sex toy.)
4. “I also don’t like when parents shame my daughter about me on her page because as we know in a real relationship, it’s not healthy to shame a dad or mom in front of the child. So maybe I would check that.”
Farrah complained of the hate she receives on Sophia’s social media page after mentioning the “grown adult men” that show up in the 12-year-old’s direct messages.
Call us crazy, but one of these things feels like a WAY bigger problem than the other.
5. “ … Just totally use it and abuse it like they do with you.”
This was Farrah’s financial advice to the remaining cast members of ‘Teen Mom.’ Farrah admitted that she (and Sophia) watched the show regularly back in the day, but stopped tuning in when the series became “about production and trying to be in our lives in such bad ways.”
Naturally, Farrah made sure to throw in a dig about her former show’s declining ratings.
“I know the ratings are going down,” she said. “I can’t even believe it floats.”
