Raise of hands: who thought the sudden reveal that Farrah Abraham had a boyfriend smelled like a hoax? We've suspected since early November that the Teen Mom star's relationship with Florida DJ Brian Dawe was yet another publicity stunt from the girl who filmed a sex tape with a porn star only to have it "leaked" and land her an actual porn deal. And now the jig is up!
Dawe has admitted the two cooked the whole thing up to land Farrah a role on VH1's fourth season of Couples Therapy. Of course, he's come out to say all this just as VH1 is set to air the show's premiere tonight. Interesting timing, wouldn't you say?

The rumors have always been that the relationship was as much for Dawe's benefit as Farrah's -- it got him national exposure. Now with the nation about to see him outed as a giant ass clown who abandoned his girlfriend on the first day of therapy meant to revive their relationship, he's realizing that he shot himself in the foot with it all. Instead of getting gigs, Dawe is doing major damage control. As he told Starcasm:
I got myself in this situation because I was only thinking about the profit I would be making from doing this show. That was wrong. In the back of my head I realized I could not participate in a TV show that would further exploit Farrah, and where I would have to lie to be involved.
OK. OK. We get it. He's sooooo sorry.
But should he be? Really?
Granted, he is an idiot for going along with it in the first place.
Buuuuuut, he helped Farrah land in therapy ... which she clearly needs if she's nutty enough to actually FAKE A BOYFRIEND TO GET ON A REALITY SHOW ABOUT COUPLES GOING THROUGH THERAPY.
The show may be focused on couples, but these shenanigans are simply proof positive that Farrah has some serious issues when it comes to relationships. She needs therapy. Plain and simple.
Sitting there watching real couples -- from Real Housewives star Taylor Armstrong and her fiance to Jon Gosselin and his girlfriend -- deal with serious issues such as finding a healthy relationship after domestic violence and learning to love again after divorce could be exactly what she needs to stop turning everything in her life into another publicity stunt and find something authentic.
What do you think of Dawe for going along with this hoax?
