You'd think Dr. Drew would know better than to assume Teen Mom Farrah Abraham made an adult film to finance her dreams of opening a restaurant, but apparently, he likes giving the reality star a lot of credit. While he says he would've advised Farrah against starring in a porn had she asked for his opinion, he also says he doesn't think he could've convinced her otherwise.
Fair enough. But let's not pretend she did this for anything other than fame and fortune. Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom was not a last-ditch effort to get the money she needs to cook for people.
He told Zach Sang & the Gang:
Farrah is making horrible, horrible choices. Let’s say she takes that $2 million and opens a restaurant, which has always been her dream, how are you going to talk a 21-, 22-year-old out of that? I just don’t know.
Dr. Drew. Puh-effing-lease. He's making it sound like Farrah had sex on camera for money in order to fund her life-long dream of becoming a chef. He's making it sound like no one could talk her out of following her passion for opening a restaurant, which, come on.
Dr. Drew's been criticized for being too easy on the Teen Moms during the reunion specials, and here he goes again, letting Farrah off the hook.
By implying that Farrah's high hopes for being a restaurateur can't be reeled in, he totally skirts the issue and is ignoring the core concern. Farrah did porn for fame; to become a sex symbol; to somehow feel better about herself. Let's be real: Farrah's backdoor tape has nothing to do with her "dream" of owning an eatery.
What do you think of Dr. Drew's comments?
