When jailed Teen Mom Amber Portwood starts to look like the pinnacle of parenting, you know Teen Mom Farrah Abraham must be in the conversation. While Amber's been arrested and subsequently thrown behind bars for domestic violence, breaking parole, and drug abuse, she at least had the wherewithal to turn down unsavory offers. According to Amber's brother's Twitter account, his sister was offered serious money to star in an adult film, but turned down the deal because of her young daughter.
WetPaint reports that TheAshleys found Shawn Portwood's tweet and Facebook posting (before they were taken down), which reads:
So funny Farrah sold herself for close to $1 million. I know a girl who was offered close to the same substantial amount of money but said she would never do it because of her daughter. Even when that girl was battling an addiction and could have used the money. Being an entrepreneur does not mean selling porn of yourself. Just saying.
Shawn's right on the money here. Amber's made some pretty terrible decisions, but she made a great one for herself, and for her daughter, by leaving money on the table and just saying no to porn. I'm sure like most Teen Moms, the notoriety and the cash were appealing, but unlike Farrah, Amber chose to see the bigger picture.
Farrah's too blinded by the promise of fame or infamy (I doubt she cares which ... and I doubt she knows what "infamy" means) to be able to see the forest through the trees.
Because when her video comes out on May 6, her life, and her family's lives, will be changed forever. She probably hopes it'll "work out" for her like it did the Kardashians, but the reality is, we're not ogling Farrah. We're grossed out by her.
What do you think of Amber's brother's comments?
