'Teen Mom' Farrah Abraham's Drunk Driving Arrest Does Not Make Her a Bad Mom

Farrah AbrahamOf all the moms on MTV's Teen Mom, Farrah Abraham was one of the good ones. Which is why her arrest Monday night for alleged drunk driving is so distressing. Luckily, her daughter Sophia wasn't in the car with her when Abraham was pulled over at 1 a.m. after allegedly hanging a wide turn and nearly hitting a police cruiser.

If this is true, then Farrah has become no better than Jenelle Evans or Amber Portwood, right? I mean, we EXPECT this crap from them, but Farrah? She seems to have it all together. But let's just hang on a minute there, shall we?

No one can or should or even would defend drunk driving. It's indefensible and she could have killed herself or someone else. But her daughter wasn't in the car and she is 21. It's a mistake a lot of people make. Does this make her a bad mom? I say no.


Sorry, but in the world of teen motherhood, there are much greater offenses committed every single day. She is already ahead of the curve just by not having Sophia in the car!

Maybe my expectations are low. And I will admit, this is disappointing. Farrah (and everyone else) should know better than to drink and then get behind the wheel of a car. It's a bad, stupid move. 

But the reality is, people do it every single day. Smart people. People who should know better. Farrah made a dumb mistake, but that doesn't make her a bad mom or a terrible person.

So let's not all get out our pitchforks just yet. This is a HUGE mistake, but I do think Farrah can learn from it. It doesn't have to be any worse than it is. She is allowed to make a dumb mistake.

Do you think Farrah is a bad mom because of this?
