Looks like Farrah Abraham really is on a mission to be overexposed -- in more ways than one. Right on the heels of her Vivid sex tape's release, the Teen Mom star has signed a deal to be the spokesperson for a "diet and fat-loss pill" called Raspberry Tones. In turn, she's gonna score a paycheck in the low six figures. It's unclear whether or not the company tapped Farrah before or after porn tape went public ... TMZ was told it was the bikini photos that surfaced last month that piqued their interest. Either way, they seem happy to have her shill for them.
A rep for the company told TMZ, "Farrah represents a growing audience of young, active people who take care of their health and use only natural products to look and feel great. Farrah looks fit and fabulous and takes care of her body, and a lot of health-conscious people can look up to that." Oookay ...
Meanwhile, Farrah herself posted a video gushing about how people always ask her how she stays "fit and fabulous as a busy mom" and notes that she's a "big fan of all-natural ingredients with no side effects." Ugh, where to even begin?
More from The Stir: 6 Reasons You'll Want to See Farrah Abraham's Sex Tape (VIDEO)
First off, let's be real: Who in their right mind is "looking up" to Farrah Abraham? And I'm actually not judging her for being a teen mom-turned-reality star-turned-porn star! There are so many other much more fit -- mentally, physically, emotionally -- and fabulous role models this company could have hired to promote their product. You know, a young woman with some, err, credibility.
Then again, let's not forget what kind of product we're talking about here. Even people who fall hook, line, and sinker for this campaign know there are much better, smarter, cheaper ways to get/stay fit than popping diet pills. But all right, say we give the company the benefit of the doubt. Say it is more natural than your average Hydroxy-Metabo caffeine-and other sketchtastic ingredient-packed diet pill. Say it really is side effect-free and it provides a pure form of raspberry ketones, which Dr. Oz has actually advocated as a supportive aid for weight loss. Even then, it's not going to work on its own. You have to already be eating a clean, healthy diet and working out to get results.
In other words, saying this product is Farrah's secret or the key to being "fit and fabulous as a busy mom" is straight-up BS. Just like Farrah's rapid, cringe-worthy rise to "fame." Hey, that said, maybe this endorsement deal really is a match made in hell!
Are you surprised Farrah scored this endorsement? How do you feel about diet pills like this?
