Was anyone else as surprised as we were when Farrah said she was thinking of moving to California on last night’s episode of Teen Mom? We just had to find out what she was thinking.

How did you think your parents would react to your plans to move?
I first thought it would be a horrible thing for my parents to hear–and it was. But I did expect it to be easy so I wasn’t shocked by anything my parents said.

What were you expecting when you went to visit California?
I expected California to be better priced and that the economy would be thriving more than what it was. Thinking about Sophia and me, it just didn’t feel like it was the perfect fit and I didn’t want to move to a place that didn’t feel right. I love California, but it just wasn’t right the right place for me to live.

Did you have any concerns about moving away from your parents?
Honestly, at the time, I just wanted to branch out, move way and do it on my own. I was ready and excited for a change.

Were you worried about finding someone trustworthy to watch Sophia?
I was very concerned about finding child care. I interviewed nannies during my visits and checked out websites like Sittercity and some other different nanny services.

So did you eventually move?
You’ll have to continue watching to find out.

Okay, can you offer any words of wisdom for other moms who are working and going to school?
I feel the best choice I’ve made through working hard and trying to build a future is to make sure I go to counseling to have “me time.” I also try to keep good people in our lives and stay away from immature activity.

  • I don’t like Farrah because she is a spoiled brat, but my rant is aimed more towards MTV. They pay the over $250,000 a year. That is not what other teen moms have, they’ve lost perspective completely. Who would be able to afford boob jobs and nannies etc if they were a real struggling teen mom. I do watch the show, but have become increasingly frustrated. It’s becaome more a source of entertainment than a documentation of teen mom struggles. Also as of late a lot of information has been coming out about the show, like many MTV shows, as being scripted. Personally this show does not belong on MTV, the teen moms think of themselves as stars now, this should not be the case. Rant over!

  • @Mandy they don’t make 250k a year. If they did i don’t think farrah would have to take out a 5 thousand some dollar loan for her boob job. Fact.

  • I think Farrah is a Shitty person, she is so ungrateful she swears she knows it all…
    I think she has everything so easy thanks to her mom & dad…
    I think her attitude makes her an UGLY person…

  • Lilly and Mandy: Jelousey much..

    Not once have I seen Farrah have a bad or negative attitude. MTV doesn’t pay them that much either.

    I am proud of Farrah swimming up stream to build her career in the food industry all the while raising Sophie. It isn’t easy to be a full time working mom. She is lucky she has her parents and I don’t think she is ungrateful to have them. I think she is joyous she has such great support, but she is also an adult and mother herself. You can’t blame her from wanting to branch out and gain more independance from her parents. That is what growing up and becoming a parent is all about. Ease up on her. I am happy for her and wish her all the luck.

  • I don’t understand why everybody is hating so hard, Farrah is a hard working mother. As a mother who works and goes to school, its not that hard to find a nanny lots of them close to me don’t cost much more then childcare. And because farrah is a single mom she probably gets grants to help her pay for childcare. That being said even if she did make 250K a year its not anybody’s business what she does with it. At least she is working towards a career.

    Anyways, Farrah I love all your tips and I think you do a great job as a mother and as a person. Life is stressful and sometimes we need to vent and sometimes our frustrations come out in the wrong ways and most of the times at the wrong people. I look forward to seeing what else you have in store!

  • @Jill Are you seriously that gullable? Do you even know what the word fact means? MTV have to make it look like the teen struggle, when in reality they get a fat paycheck! Don’t believe me? Research Amber Portwoods courtcase, she had to let the court know she got paid $280,000k a year. The loan thing was all bull for the cameras.

  • ***********Just noticed i made put a ‘k’ at the end of $280,000. Typo!

  • Mandy is 100 percent correct. These girls make 250 to 280 a season depending on popularity. Google it. Farrah’s ex was on E the other day and SLAMMED her hard core. Said she is SO mean off camera. Treats the camera crew like crap. He said that she acts like an angel when the cameras are on. Can you even imagine? She is horribly rude and I can understand now WHY she has NO man and NO friends.

  • Farrah makes my skin crawl. I have a daughter and although not always perfect, I cant imagine helping her for 2 seconds if she used that tone with me or spoke with me like Farrah does her mom and dad. Please don’t move to Arizona…that is where I live and you make me sick.

  • WTF do you people give this b*tch a leg to stand on? She’s a CHILD. Who cares why she wants to move, she’s ungrateful and pure evil. Grow up sweetheart, you have no idea what it’s like out there on your own and you won’t make it with your sh*tty attitude.

    I feel bad that her mom was prosecuted for hitting her. if she was my kid I would have buried her by now.

    The most hilarious part is that she tries to act like she’s a Cali valley girl and and dumb beaver, but she’s from Iowa. But she doesn’t have to try, she’s absolutely transparent and is a complete idiot to her core.

  • WHY in the world does MTV have this girl on their show? She is the RUDEST bitch I have ever seen. I am so sick of the way she speaks to EVERYONE. I cant wait for her daughter to grow up and treat her the same way….because she will! She is an idiot.
    I love little Bentley. He is a such a cute little boy, and looks like his mom is doing a wonderful job.
    I was a teen mom 20 yrs ago, and my life was nothing like these girls when I was. I had to live with roommates, and eat roman noodles. This is not reality, they need to quit glorifiying it.

  • I don’t care for Farrah at all because she is mean and rude to her parents and she has a nasty attitude, it’s really sad to watch and I don’t know why she calls her dad by his first name, if I were her parents she would get limited help how she acts on t.v. Isn’t cute. So sad and you see even her daughter on the show talked back to Farrah and she didn’t like it. I feel sorry for her parents.
