Exclusive! Teen Mom Star Farrah Abraham Talks Regrets and Why She Gets So Annoyed With Her Parents

Large Editorial Image


July 11, 2012

Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham is back to recap this week’s episode, which saw her return home for a visit to Iowa and more drama with her parents.

Why didn’t you feel confident living on your own in Florida?

I feel like Florida wasn’t the place where I could have my career. It was only a place to relax, enjoy time with Sophia and get over my depression. I had doubts.

You seem to become annoyed whenever your parents talk to you–how would you like them to talk to you?

I do get annoyed with how my parents talk to me and how they try to sneakily get their way and nag me. My counselor, Deana, has spoken to my parents about how to ask me questions regarding Sophia and how to address closeness in regards to limitations and freedom. My parents insist on speaking to me separately about the same topic over and over again trying to get their way. They do not give me real support in terms of advice and being confident in my decisions and my life with Sophia.

What advice would you give to other single moms who live away from family? How do you juggle it all?

I think for other single parents who live away from family, the most important thing is to make sure you take 15 minutes out of the day for yourself. I know the stress of chores, bills, errands, daycare and work can get hectic. But something that has helped me juggle everything is incorporating activities and going places that allow me to have Sophia with me as much as possible. That way, I don’t have to stress over where she is so much.

Are you worried about the relationship you have with your mother repeating itself with you and Sophia?


I’m not concerned with history repeating itself. I think I have completely tried to show my mom and my whole family how to care and support for someone instead of adding aggravation and hardships. I’m very blunt and honest when there is wrong being done in my family. I try to have the best family as possible, and I work hard to keep my family together in a positive and healthy way. I make sure everyone communicates and that we confront an issue before it turns in to a fight. But talking, talking, talking is all it takes.

Looking back on the episode, do you feel like you overreacted at all during the weekend back in Iowa with your parents?


Well , I look back and I know there was way more that went on than what was shown on TV, so no I don’t feel I overreacted. I try to remain down-to-earth and I feel I have enough drama in my life that I don’t need to act out by being more dramatic. Maybe viewers confuse my frustration with my parents as dramatic, but it’s better then yelling and fighting.

If you had it to do all over again, would you still move to Florida on your own?


I would say, yes I would still move to Florida again. I can’t regret it. I needed Florida time.
