For those of you that are out of the loop, Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham was arrested Monday night for a DUI. Abraham was pulled over around 1 a.m. after allegedly hanging a wide turn and nearly hitting a police cruiser and blew a .147, almost twice the legal limit of alcohol. Thankfully, her daughter Sophia was NOT in the car at the time.
One would think that something like this would be a MAJOR wakeup call. That it would be something to take seriously. Instead, the Teen Mom is writing it off as "drama," tweeting yesterday, "It's amazing what people believe & makeup (LOVE MY LIFE) #Thank #God #I'mSuccessful & I don't care about drama! #HaveAGreatDay."
... right. Because when you're "successful," you're just so above dealing with all of the "drama" that comes with getting a DUI.
It's time to face the music, Abraham.
A DUI isn't something you should have no shame about. A DUI is serious. Instead of running away from the truth, writing this off, and trying to ignore it, Farrah needs to face the music. The MTV star has loads of teen fans, all of which are looking at her every move. Right now, she's conveying that getting a DUI isn't a big deal. She needs to be more responsible than that. The right move would be addressing what happened, and talking about how to move forward effectively in a way that will better her life and Sophia's.
At the end of the day -- the fact that Farrah went out and got drunk is not the issue. The issue is that she attempted to drive home drunk to her child. Yes, people make mistakes. However, Sophia already doesn't have a father. I can only imagine how difficult it would be growing up without a mother, too.
Do you think Farrah is downplaying the severity of her DUI?
