Watch: 'Teen Mom' Farrah Abraham calls herself a 'shattered woman' and details her life before fame
Farrah Abraham has always been in the news for being the bad guy in the Teen Mom series but this time the reality star is being an open book in the latest YouTube video she uploaded. In the video, Farrah detailed every aspect of her life, right from her parents to how she got involved in the adult film industry.
According to a report by The Ashley, the video showed Farrah in a light that no one had ever seen. In the video, the reality star referred to herself as broken and insecure. She recalled that the relationship she shared with her parents was not so good as her parents had an abusive relationship, her mother had a midlife crisis and the poor treatment she received from her mother did not make things any better.
“When you’re a shattered woman and picked apart to the core and people pleasing…it was just so much trying to me. I was falling apart," she said in the video. The reality star went on to reveal that she eventually got into the adult film industry because of the people she had surrounded herself with.
Quite ironically, her decision came right after she decided to to go get baptized. “I wanted to start living differently. So I went and got baptized," she said. "The oddest thing happened to me like a week later. I find myself around a lot of my friends who are in the porn industry. All my girlfriends were strippers or adult stars. That was the crowd at 21, with drinking, drugs, other things. That is where I found myself and I don’t know why.”
She agreed that not everyone who had been her 'friends' had the best of her interest. At the same time, she confessed that being a single mother is hard and it is often the reason some single mothers are forced into the adult industry. That’s just not who I am. I see so many mothers dabbling in [the sex industry],” she said. “We find ourselves in a very vulnerable place being single mothers… God knows if you’ve lost your baby’s dad, your parents are a little bit horrible to you, and you’re on TV trying to live out these other expectations from other people who want so much from you. It’s all about money, money, money.”
Meanwhile, Farrah also explained why there are times when she is believed to be racist. One of the reasons for this happens to be her family. “I grew up with a hateful aura in my family, and [they were] a little bit racist,” Farrah said. “I couldn’t be friends with certain people. I don’t know why that bothered me so much.”
