Farrah Abraham of MTV's Teen Mom takes an enormous amount of flak and most of it is undeserved. Sure, she can come off as a little spoiled and disrespectful, but she is also trying very hard to make a good life for herself and her daughter. She wrote a book, created a tomato sauce, and may open a restaurant. So if she also wants a rich, ambitious man, who are we to judge?
Rumor has it that Farrah is seeking a "sugar daddy" or a man of means who could take care of her. If she is, so what? Doesn't an ambitious woman deserve an ambitious man?
This is a rumor anyway, but even if it's true, I wouldn't fault her one bit for it. The only reason anyone would is because they are jealous.
Oh sure, we can all go on and on about female empowerment and success. While I might feel differently is Farrah was some kind of loser who just wanted to sponge off a man, this isn't the case here.
Farrah is an ambitious young lady with dreams of her own. She is no one's charity case. So what if she wants a man who is her equal or who is even more ambitious? Is there really something wrong with seeking a man of means?
I say no. I say it's smart. As someone once said: "It's just as easy to fall in love with a rich man as it is to fall in love with a poor man." So why not go for the former? It will make both her and Sophia's life that much easier.
The truth is, I don't believe this rumor. But if it's true, then I also don't fault Farrah for wanting a rich guy. When you have kids to think about, it does change the stakes, and being rich is (shock!) superior to being poor. It just is.
Do you fault Farrah here?
