Exclusive! Teen Mom Star Farrah Abraham Talks Letting Go of Sophia and The End of Teen Mom
August 22, 2012
It’s almost over! The final episode of Teen Mom airs next week, but before we say goodbye we’ve got two more exclusive with Farrah Abraham. This week, Farrah said goodbye to her daughter, Sophia, and we got the inside scoop on whether or not she has regrets.
What was going through your head in the days before Sophia was about to leave with your mom?
In my mind, I knew I had to have Sophia spend time with my family back home so I could make sure I got good grades and adjusted to living in a new area. I knew Sophia needed more attention, so I was sad for her to go but I knew Sophia and I needed the space. It always gets sadder as the departure day comes.
Do you think Sophia understood you two were going to be apart? How was she handling it?
Yes, Sophia knew we were going to be apart. We did phone calls and Skype a lot to make the time pass quickly.
People have commented that you shouldn’t have laughed when Sophia hit you–why didn’t you reprimand her?
Well, no one knows my child better than me. I know that Sophia likes to randomly smack because she thinks it’s funny and I personally think it’s funny, as well. She’s my sweet sour patch kid.
Was it hardest when Sophia first left or did it get harder the longer she was gone?
The longer she was away, the harder it got for me. I would start crying more without her. She’s my happiness and I missed her so much as the days went by.
Do you have any regrets about letting Sophia go?
I think it was a learning experience letting Sophia go back to Omaha for a month. She enjoyed the family time, but I would never do it again.
How are you feeling now that your Teen Mom journey is about to come to an end?
I’m happy to be done with Teen Mom. I hope many teens have learned from my story, and my fans can continue to watch Sophia and I grow up past Teen Mom in our future projects.
