Teen Mom OG star Farrah Abraham has gone to incredible lengths to ensure her daughter becomes a star, but this might be her most extreme yet. Farrah admitted Sophia is homeschooled so she can go to more press events. Yeah, let that one sink in. 


According to InTouch, Farrah let this little detail slip while she was talking to press on the red carpet at Sunday's MTV VMAs -- with Sophia by her side, might we add. Apparently it's better for Sophia's career if she's not in a traditional school, at least in her mom's mind, anyway.

But hey, if it works for Farrah and Sophia, it's all good. We just hope that becoming a mini-celeb is all Sophia's idea, not her mom's. She shouldn't get pushed into that unless it's what she really wants to do.
