No stranger to controversy, Farrah Abraham is at the center of it again. We never want to judge any mother's choices, but the former Teen Mom 2 star pushed just about every button under the sun during a Monday appearance on Bethenny Frankel's talk show Bethenny.
The self-described businesswoman (she has a sex toy line), who recently starred in the "sex tape"/porn film Backdoor Teen Mom, once again defended her decision to wax her now-4-year-old daughter Sophia's eyebrows. Abraham has talked about waxing her little girl's brows before -- which she had referred to as being a unibrow -- but was called on the carpet for it by a Bethenny audience member for trying to make her daughter "pretty for pictures."
In the clip below (one of the most uncomfortable talk-show moments we've seen in forever), Abraham explains her daughter was asleep while she did it. Okay, we haven't done a lot of home waxing, mostly because it hurts so much. Sorry, but we don't believe that a 3-year-old would be able sleep through that. Watch and decide for yourself:
Since the appearance, Abraham has lashed out at Frankel for bringing up "very old miscontrued tabloid topics like my daughter's unibrow" and being "degrading to women." “Before going on the show, I was told that it would be a positive and inspirational talk for mothers and business women,” the reality star told RadarOnline. “But as soon as I met Bethenny, it turned into a judgmental zone. She did not like how I valued my daughter’s opinion and care so much about her that I allow her to have her own voice."
Abraham also took issue with the talk-show host "siding with these women (in the audience) and their untrue statements.” And she felt that Frankel was discouraging people from buying her sex toy line. "This was very rude as my life has moved on from all of this, plus, it made no sense at all being the first release of the sex toys are for men not women," she told RadarOnline. "Perhaps her ex-husband Jason will be purchasing my sex toys… not women like Bethenny.”
Ouch. Probably not the best way to win friends and influence people, Farrah.
