Leave it to Farrah Abraham to start a pissing match with her reality TV co-stars! The Teen Mom has always been known for speaking her mind, and she wasn't pulling any punches recently. Abraham called out some of MTV's teen mothers as "very not intelligent."
Daaaaang! Them's fighting words, Farrah! But that doesn't mean she shouldn't have said them.
Awkward phrasing aside, Farrah is right. Some of the moms on Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 are really trying to straighten up and fly right. Moms like Kailyn Lowry and Chelsea Houska have shown us that they can prioritize their children and come out looking like pretty decent parents. Farrah herself has come a long way from dumping her daughter with her mom and heading out to hang with boys. These days she's got a spinoff show, book deals, a food business, and an obvious love for her daughter.

Some of the other girls, on the other hand, are still making problems for themselves.
Take Jenelle Evans, who recently attacked Farrah's plastic surgery. It was in responding to Jenelle, pointing out that the Teen Mom 2 star underwent her own boob job, that Farrah pulled out the big guns in the first place. In addition to the "not intelligent comment," Farrah added:
And I’m one of them [Teen Mom cast member] who really works hard, who really educated myself and really cares about people. And lots of the time they call me a b*tch and then act like my friend, but that’s normal because I think that’s what the world has become. But [the drama] is just not in my life.
I have to say I sympathize with the girls from this show who are trying to clean up their acts only to be dragged down in the dirt every time the tabloids report one of their co-stars' scandals. As Houska told The Stir a few weeks ago, each mistake one girl makes only adds to the stereotype that all teen mothers are massive failures. Farrah has every right to be angry that, while she is making good choices, she is painted with the same brush as the girls who aren't.
As for whether she should voiced this out loud, what exactly did she have to lose? She's clearly not friends with Jenelle. And she's certainly put the world on notice!
What do you think of Farrah's comments? Is it fair to say that these girls are not all equal?
