Farrah Abraham’s Desperate Need for Fame Could Hurt Her Daughter

OMG 13

farrah abrahamI have to admit, the Teen Mom franchise has always been very hard for me to watch. Parenthood is tough enough when you are a mature adult with a job and a supportive spouse. It pains me to see these young girls go though the emotionally taxing process of raising a child when they haven't really had a chance to grow up themselves. So it's especially heartbreaking to watch Farrah Abraham make choices that won't just hurt her, but also possibly her beautiful baby girl Sophia.

Many of the stars seem desperate to extend their 15-minutes of fame. I can understand why. The show has changed their lives in ways they couldn't have imagined. They became bona fide stars. So with the end near, I expected them do as many public appearances and interviews as possible. But Farrah took this quest to a whole new level when she decided to make a sex tape. She is sticking the story that she had never intended for it to get out, but very few people are buying that. Who pays a porn star to be in a sex tape with you if you never intend for it to see the light of day?

When I heard about it, I immediately thought of her poor daughter. One day, she will know what her mom did and how will this make her feel? For her part, Farrah says she will be open with Sophia once she's a teenager and share her porn past. Who knows how that conversation will turn out. I can't imagine any child being proud of that. But even more worrisome is that Farrah continues to make decisions that don't seem to have her daughter's best interest in mind.

Coming off her sex tape success, she recently inked a deal for a new reality series and has been in New York City this week for meetings and interviews. In the past, she has said that Sophia will be apart of any show that she films. I have to wonder, though, is that really in Sophia's best interest? I know Farrah wants financial security -- that is top of mind for nearly every single mom. But is this the way to go about it? Even during the toddler years kids are very impressionable. What is best for them is stability and love, not a team of cameras following your every move or throngs of paparazzi and fans. That can be an overwhelming experience for a child, especially one who has already been through so much (her father died in a car accident before she was even born).

And the older Sophia gets, the more cognizant she will be of her mother's lifestyle and choices. I cringe to think of the first time some kid on the playground or at recess starts making fun of her because of her mother's porn tape. And as Farrah flits across the country for press tours or trying to get meetings with producers, there is the possibility that Sophia may get lost in the fray. What that child needs more than anything is a normal child with routines she can count on. My hope is that Farrah will one day give her that.

Do you think Farrah's choices will negatively impact her daughter?

Her daughter is a carbon copy of her, a spoiled brat.

Yes, of course she is hurting Sophia. If she cared one iota about that girl she would stop all this. But sadly I don't think she cares about anyone but herself.

I think she could def. be a negative impact but we don't live wih her so we don't know how she is at home which is the most important. She wasn't watching her mom make the porn. I believe it will hurt her daughter when shedoes find out though, but as of right now, I don't think so.

I dont agree with what this girl has done in any way but I live in New Zealand and know of a lady that has worked in the sex industry (its legal over here) most of her adult life and her now adult daughter has grown up knowing what her mum does and I believe they have the closest, most fantastic relationship with eachother. This particular lady did not make a sex tape but she HAS written books on her experiences and has been interviewed on tv, etc.Everyone has their own minds and noone nows what this little girls views of this may be in the future. People are all very quick to pass judgement. And because she will be growing up with this being in the public eye, you'll probably find she wont know anything different so it'll be normal to her. (the attention her mum recieves, not making sex tapes) There are MANY 'celebritys' that have done things very similar and they aren't ostracized quite the same way....

1) if kids young enough to  " make fun of her on the PLAYGROUND" know about her mothers sex tape, their are SERIOUS problems in their households. 2) 30 years ago we were ashamed if our family or friends post in a nude magazine. Now there is a certain type of weird pride. " Leaked" porn tapes have become so freaking common most of us don't even bat an eye or stop to read beyound a glanced at headline anymore. Who's to say if a 'leaked' sex vid will even get a second thought by the time she's old enough to know what it is?  Unfortunatly our society has developed a great deal of desensitization regarding things that should be private and we should be embaressed about. Sad that this is what we continue to consistantly leave our children.

This girl is just dumb, I feel bad for that baby.

Is that even a real question? Of course this is going to hurt that poor baby. I wish Farrah had just continued to ignore her the way she did when she was a baby.

Farrah is a NASTY BITTER BITCH, she is spoiled and treats her poor mom n dad like crap even though they've done everything for her n have been there good n bad!!! Farrah's parents need to fight custody of poor sophia. Beautiful young girl, with a poor excuse for a mom. Farrah wake up this ain't about You!!!
