All right Teen Mom fans, are you ready for Farrah Abraham ... actress? Nope, we're not talking about another porn flick. Farrah has gone and gotten herself a bona fide acting gig!
The casting folks at Days of Our Lives took a look at her audition videos (more on that later), and they've decided to give her a spot on the daytime show. Of course, we are talking about Farrah Abraham here, so her upcoming role on the soap opera is, well, let's just say it's not one you call home to mom about.
Word has it Farrah will be playing a hooker named Destiny. You can't wait to hear how she's going to explain this one to Sophia, can you?
After Back Door: Teen Mom, this is actually a step up for Farrah. She can keep her clothes on!
There's no question why she'd take the gig.

There is, however, the question of why it's on offer to begin with. Is Days of Our Lives this hard up for ratings? Do they really need to sully their nearly 50-year history by bringing in a tacky reality star to bring attention to daytime?
Because this smells an awful lot like a publicity stunt.
Sure, a bunch of the old standby soaps were killed because they were just not making money for the networks, but remember the shit fits people pulled over the loss of All My Children and One Life to Live? They were so furious they actually got them back (albeit online)!
Days of Our Lives has a contract through this time next year with NBC, so it's not like they're even hanging by a thread.
I'd give Farrah all the credit for her acting chops, but remember those audition videos I mentioned? Yeah, well ... take a look:
OK, so she's reading the lines off her cellphone, which can't be easy, but come on! It doesn't get much better with actual scripts:
Maybe that's OK acting for a porno, but for the longest-running soap on a major network?
What do you think? Is Farrah ready for this or is Days of Our Lives banking off her current star status to get ratings?
