Let's do an experiment: close your eyes and think of three totally inappropriate places to take young children. What did you come up with? Strip club? Gun range? Marilyn Manson concert? We bet "sex tape negotiation meeting" didn't even occur to you, because who would do that? And the answer is...Farrah Abraham!
The Teen Mom star, who recently shot a "scene" with adult film star James Deen, had a meeting with pornographic film distributor Vivid Entertainment on Sunday. Not only did she bring along her 3-year-old daughter Sophia -- she also brought her dad! Talk about an awkward family outing.
"Like any business person, I need to handle this situation in the best way for my future, and my family supports me," Abraham, 22, told TMZ. "My dad's just here helping me out, and I wanted to bring Soph out here as well. I'm just getting a couple different offers for two other companies, and I think it's just smart that I'm hearing what each company has to say and really hearing out everything so I can process it."
And it was important to bring her daughter along... why? For solidarity? To remind porn companies of her Teen Mom cred? The dad thing is creepy, but the kid thing is inexcusable. No way should a child ever hang out in a place where pornographic films are made. Not to mention that the poor kid's photo is now permanently linked to "sex tape" headlines. This is a major parenting fail.
It's also one of many recent events that has us concerned about Farrah Abraham. First there was the DUI arrest. Then there's the sex tape, which she initially denied making, then admitted to making for "personal" reasons, and is now trying to sell.
When Dr. Phil McGraw confronted the reality star about all this on Friday's Dr. Phil show, her lies caught up with her. She denied that the video she made with a porn star was a "porn video." She denied that she was trying to sell the tape, but said she'd accept money for it. She admitted that she was drunk behind the wheel when she was arrested for DUI, but claimed she wasn't driving. ("I was actually parked," she says in the clip below.)
Later, in a quickly deleted tweet, Abraham claimed that everything she said on Dr. Phil was a lie. ("Lmao @everyone who believes Dr. Phil; qued audience, told by producer what to say & payed me 2go on his show= fake drama :) thanks haters.”) Because that's supposed to make her more trustworthy?
Dr. Phil identified Farrah's problem as "an incredible sense of entitlement." She definitely seems unable to take responsibility for her actions and their consequences. That's not a great trait in a young celebrity -- let alone a young celebrity with a small child.
