What an emotional episode of Teen Mom! What started off as a fun trip to Texas for Farrah Abraham and her boyfriend, Daniel, ended abruptly in heartbreak. Here, the Teen Mom star opens up about her regrets during those days in Texas and clears up more rumors about her battle with depression.

Do you have any regrets about the things you said during dinner with Daniel’s parents? Do you think it was rude to call Daniel’s stepmom a lone bird?

I was just being me at dinner with Daniel’s parents. It seemed that Daniel’s dad was cool, but Daniel and his stepmom were not meshing with me that well. I don’t feel saying lone bird was mean. She was over-dramatic and wanted to be negative, so therefore I don’t like how she turned it into a negative.

You and Daniel were dating just over one month – why you were in such a rush for commitment? Do you wish you hadn’t talked so much about marriage and children?

Honestly, I want to know someone’s intentions when they’re dating me. Given that Sophia is getting older and I don’t want men in and out of our lives, I’m happy that I talked about marriage with Daniel. Marriage is my goal! I’m not settling for anything less, so I need a better boy than Daniel… Where’s my man?

How did it make you feel when Daniel didn’t come back to the hotel or answer your phone calls?

To me, the way Daniel acted showed how immature he is. I also think he needs mental help because he acts one way on film and another way off camera. How he behaved just showed me he was a big waste of space.

Do you feel like it was your fault at all?

How an immature boy acts is not my fault. But there’s more to come on the next episode of Teen Mom. You’ll get to see more of how the relationship ended. I hope, though, that Daniel grows up given he’s older than me.

How will you handle your next relationship differently?

My next relationship will be with someone who is actually there for more than just being on TV!

Did you learn anything by watching your relationship with Daniel unfold on TV?

Yes, to not go to Texas with anyone ever again… cheers!

Last week, a story came out about your battle with depression after Sophia was born and how you considered suicide. Do you still have those thoughts?

No, those days of feeling depressed are long gone. I think it’s great that I talked about it in my book, My Teenage Dream Ended. P.S. Thank you fans for grabbing my book today! It means a lot!

Do you still struggle with depression?

I no longer struggle with depression or grieving. It was very helpful watching myself on Teen Mom, writing my book and also recording the book soundtrack. It has me feeling great! I hope others enjoy it all as well and that I help them.

So what’s been the key to getting over your depression and those thoughts of suicide?

As mentioned, the biggest reasons I’m happy and healthy now are because I was on Teen Mom, I wrote my first book and made my first album. That was my therapy and it worked! I encourage others to sing, write, and record themselves. You will learn what makes you happy and you will find your true you and a healthy lifestyle.
