Farrah Abraham’s Check-In at Rehab Means She Knows How Troubled She Is After All

Farrah AbrahamFarrah Abraham has gone from bad to worse since her sweet Teen Mom days. There was a DUI, porn, then there were parties, fights with Charlie Sheen, and now, finally, she has checked herself into a two-week facility for alcohol rehab. As much as Farrah has morphed into this different kind of person who is easy to hate, I am still rooting for her on some level.

The fact is, when you watch a reality show, you feel like you know the people on it. It's not like an actor or an actress who is playing a character. On a reality show, you get to know the actual people, and for better or worse, I feel like I know Farrah. 

The girl she has become is really not the girl she was. Sure, she was spoiled and pampered and maybe a little whiney, but she seemed like she would grow out of it. And then "fame" went to her head.


Maybe she is coming back to Earth now. One can only hope. After all, let's recall that her show was a show about her being a mom. That means there is a little girl -- 4-year-old Sophia -- who wants and expects her mother to be a part of her life. The way she has been behaving lately hasn't been very "maternal."

As she says:

At this time in my life, I need to stay focused on the positive to get through all of the negative that a DUI has caused in my life. I’m 22 and I just want to make better choices and ensure I can recognize when I am putting myself in a bad situation next time.

This is a huge departure from her making excuses and trying to blame everyone else for her issues. Maybe this is some shade of the old Farrah trying to come back? One can only hope ... 

She will be in rehab for 10 days in Florida and I am hoping she emerges in a better place. There is still hope for her yet!

Do you think Farrah will ever get it together or do you think she is too far gone?

Wow a whole 10 days? Yeah, she's definitely doing it for attention.

She doesn't need alcohol rehab she needs years of counseling. She should have checked in a mental health facility. She is doing this for the attention.

If she was doing it for herself she would have never made it public, its a publicity stunt yet again.

She COULD get better, do I think she will? No. She likes the spotlight too much.

Ha. She is probably doing this for her DUI, I live in Iowa and have plenty of friends with DUIs and one thing everyone has to due is have a substance abuse evaluation and if you fail you have court ordered treatment.

I feel so bad for her! I also.would like to say nobody is perfect!From the very beginning all the issues her and her mother had the way her mom tried dictating every single lil thing she doe

s or did! That for one has been a recipe for disaster. I just would like to remind ppl that she is human ppl make mistakes does not make u who u are.

I wish her the best in getting healthy and happy! I believe that ppl who say negative things only think so negative. Hope everyone would show this girl some hope and be not so judgemental we all make mistakes a lil more then others. But were only human and anybody can change if they really want to. I pray she gets better for her daughter's sake.
