We’ve been thrilled to have Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham join us as a Guest Editor over the last few weeks to recap the final season. Today, Farrah dishes on dating Daniel and responds to all those negative comments about her.

Why do you think your mom’s visit was better after your sister left?

The reason why I was less critical of my mom after my sister left is because I feel like what more can I do to change my mom? Nothing. And honestly, I didn’t feel like yelling or upsetting myself anymore, so I knew she was leaving and I was happy about that.

What do you say to people who say your sister is/was an instigator?

They don’t see the full week in one episode, but clearly my mom is more of an instigator than my sister is. My mom came purposely because my sister was there to try to ruin our fun. She didn’t watch Sophia properly and she let the puppy get turned into a mess. I think if you can’t see who the true instigator is, maybe you should pay more attention to the relationship you’re watching because the facts are right there for you to see.

What do you like about Daniel?

You know, at this point in my life I just wanted to hang out and try to meet a normal, family-friendly guy. He seemed nice, but I hadn’t really figured him out yet.

What do you say to critics who say you moved too fast with Daniel having kissed him on your second date?

I would agree, it was too quick. But sometimes I see a perfect boyfriend/girlfriend setting and I want to make the most of it, regardless if I just started talking to a guy. It’s more for me, not anyone else.

How will you decide the time is right for Daniel to meet Sophia?

I feel the time is right to introduce Sophia when she seems curious. From there you can see if things will really work out or if they fizzle.

Do you think it will be too much to juggle motherhood, school and a new relationship all at the same time?

OMG I try not to think about it. That’s why with dating I really try to figure out as soon as possible if the person I’m dating is worth my time (let the tests begin!).

People have very strong reactions to you–why do you think that is? And how does it make you feel to have people say such nasty things about you?

I would say people are either crazy or normal–there is no In between. If you react by spouting horrible words and profanity, you are crazy. Learn to sound educated and have more class. For the normal people who see more than just a TV screen and real life situations, they know if they put their personal lives on TV through a life-changing experience they might look worse than me. Either way, good or bad, I don’t care how I’m judged. I don’t care to judge. I’m focused on being a parent, my career and my family. I would hope viewers do the same.
