We’ve been thrilled to have Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham join us as a Guest Editor over the last few weeks to recap the final season. Today, Farrah dishes on dating Daniel and responds to all those negative comments about her.

Why do you think your mom’s visit was better after your sister left?
The reason why I was less critical of my mom after my sister left is because I feel like what more can I do to change my mom? Nothing. And honestly, I didn’t feel like yelling or upsetting myself anymore, so I knew she was leaving and I was happy about that.

What do you say to people who say your sister is/was an instigator?
They don’t see the full week in one episode, but clearly my mom is more of an instigator than my sister is. My mom came purposely because my sister was there to try to ruin our fun. She didn’t watch Sophia properly and she let the puppy get turned into a mess. I think if you can’t see who the true instigator is, maybe you should pay more attention to the relationship you’re watching because the facts are right there for you to see.

What do you like about Daniel?
You know, at this point in my life I just wanted to hang out and try to meet a normal, family-friendly guy. He seemed nice, but I hadn’t really figured him out yet.

What do you say to critics who say you moved too fast with Daniel having kissed him on your second date?
I would agree, it was too quick. But sometimes I see a perfect boyfriend/girlfriend setting and I want to make the most of it, regardless if I just started talking to a guy. It’s more for me, not anyone else.

How will you decide the time is right for Daniel to meet Sophia?
I feel the time is right to introduce Sophia when she seems curious. From there you can see if things will really work out or if they fizzle.

Do you think it will be too much to juggle motherhood, school and a new relationship all at the same time?
OMG I try not to think about it. That’s why with dating I really try to figure out as soon as possible if the person I’m dating is worth my time (let the tests begin!).

People have very strong reactions to you–why do you think that is? And how does it make you feel to have people say such nasty things about you?
I would say people are either crazy or normal–there is no In between. If you react by spouting horrible words and profanity, you are crazy. Learn to sound educated and have more class. For the normal people who see more than just a TV screen and real life situations, they know if they put their personal lives on TV through a life-changing experience they might look worse than me. Either way, good or bad, I don’t care how I’m judged. I don’t care to judge. I’m focused on being a parent, my career and my family. I would hope viewers do the same.

  • Oh dont worry about dating a guy, (not sure what all the questions were about) she will run Daniel off in no timd!! She doesnt know how to keep her Syble personalities under control. RUN, RUN RUN DANIEL!
    IF the producers are making up this character for the audience to despise her, they did a great job!

  • Well if there are two kinds of people, Farrah is definitely in the CRAZY category. This chick needs serious help. She must be bipolar or even schizophrenic. I’ve never seen an odder chick in my life. I don’t think she needs to worry about Daniel or any other guy. Trust me sweetie, no guy would EVER stick around to be with someone like you. You have a horrible attitude, temper and personality. How anyone, including your mom, can stomach 5 minutes around you is beyond me. Her daughter must be in misery 24/7! Its sad when people treat their kids the way this chick does. I love how she’s trashing her mom for not watching her daughter “properly”. Do you watch the show Farrah? You do not watch your own child properly. You ignore her and yell at her and let her beat on that puppy. You could not in a million years convince me that your daughter has not done the same exact things while in your care that she did in your mother’s care. Farrah is a selfish, ugly, ugyl chick!

  • Get off her back, haters! How come some people cannot handle an educated, driven female? For those of you who did not grow up with an overbearing, manipulative parent, you will probably never understand? Props to Farrah for doing it on her own, like a boss! At least she’s not leaning on her parents to provide for her every need or worse, on welfare like many single mothers…S he knows what she wants and makes it happen, thats more than I can say for many, many people …single mom or not!

  • LOL. She SO cares about how she’s judged. If she didn’t, she’d stay off T.V. and stop writing books.

  • I definitely think that her Mom has issues. However, as a grandparent, I think Farrah needs to understand the bond between Sophia and her parents. She acts as if her parents don’t trust her parenting because they want time with Sophia. Maybe that’s the case, and maybe its not.

    My daughter is one of the best teen Moms ever. She has taken care of her daughter every day of my granddaughter’s life without help from the father. I know she is an amazing Mom. She recently graduated nursing school and got married (not the bio Dad). Her husband is in the Navy and stationed 2,200 miles away. As a grandparent who was with my granddaughter almost daily for the first 3 years of her life, my heart broke when they moved away. I have never questioned her ability as a great Mom, but I miss that connection with my granddaughter. Farrah doesn’t understand that relationship, and she won’t until she it’s a a grandparent, but the distance is tough on everyone…including the little ones.

  • Seriously? She talks about people responding with profanity as crazy. Does she not watch herself on the show?! I’ve never seen a more disrespectful, angry, condescending person than Farrah. She has no self-awareness whatsoever. The sad thing is Sophia will grow up talking to Farrah like that because its been made clear to her that such verbal abuse is acceptable. I’ve never been more mad than I was after seeing what Farrah did to her father after deciding she wanted to move to Florida. She is spoiled, demanding, inconsiderate, selfish, childish, and I could go on for hours but I’ll stop. I cannot stand watching her. GOOD RIDDANCE.

  • I would say to her to watch the show so she can see what a horrible person she really is. I am disgusted with the one hour, I can’t imagine living with her. I am glad her mom finally told her. She does need to care how she is judged, to become a better person because her kid is acting just like her.

  • This whole new season of Teen Mom has been terrible. I’m glad that it’s almost over. AND FUCK YOU, FARRAH!!!!! YOU’RE THE CRAZY ONE!!! AND YES I WOULD SAY THAT TO YOUR FOOT-LOOKING FACE, BITCH ASS CUNT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Wow, Farrah you have a lot more haters than fans and for good reason. Trying to describe yourself using words like mature, assertive, driven or whatever other terms you use is disingenuous because unfortunately none of them are right. You’re a very angry, immature, mean spirited, lonely girl who lacks the ability to have a lasting relationship. You’re in need of serious counseling. Bring your daughter back to the grandparents home and get yourself emotionally stable so your daughter doesn’t grow up like you.

  • I can completely understand that you don’t want to be judged nor do you care. I also get that not everything is as it appears on television. But to sit there and tell people to learn to sound educated and classy is a joke! She is completely disrespectful and nasty to her parents. I hope her child is just as disgusting to her someday.

  • Farrah, you need some serious help. You think there are two kinds of people in this world? Wow…. that’s just stupid. People are unique in there own ways which makes them who they are. Just because you don’t Luke the response you get from about 95% of the viewers, you put them in a “crazy” group. No Farrah they are not crazy, they like me are so sick of you.acting like you do nothing wrong when it.comes to your parents. It was so clear to anyone who watched the episode with your vindictive sister that you BOTH were trying to humiliate your mother on tv. It was really sad to see how horrible you BOTH treated her. I’m so glad this is the last season with you. I’m sure you will die down from the limelight. Sofia is already taking after you with the snoty looking faces, hitting things while DEMANDING she gets something. You said in this interview that we don’t see everything. Well Farrah……. Thank the lord above we don’t. If you think the response you get is just “crazy” people now?…… Have Mtv show all of it…… you will then see crazy.people.

  • Lol people are so judgmental. Yeah she may be rude at times to her mom, but we don’t know what her life was like growing up, or what happens off camera with her family. I think Farrah’s doing a GREAT job at being a single parent, and Sophia has a great life. She’s doing what’s best for her and Sophia’s future, and in today’s society, sometimes it takes moving to a different city. You people are saying that Sophia is going to turn out to be a b**** because of Farrah’s ways of speaking to her mom. But maybe you should start hoping that Sophia will turn out to be independent, driven, and outspoken like her mom….. The kind of people who actually become successful in life !

  • Farrah has a lot of balls to say people need to watch their language and talk with some class. I have NEVER seen/heard anyone speak so disrespectfully to their Mother as she does. Those parents bend over backwards and kiss this girls ass – and it’s ridiculous that they seem to just sit back and take it so calmly. The fact that no one ever calls her out on it is mind-boggling. She had the nerve to scream at her Mom (after the Mom falls asleep after being up 24 hours & Sophia got into nail polish)………………then leaves her kid with the Mom AGAIN so she can go out drinking with her sister….where they talk about how crappy a Mom/babysitter their Mom is. She has no problem in using her Mom/Dad when she needs something. If you hate your parents so much, think they’re unfit, or they’ve done something horrible to you in the past that you’re making them pay for now, just cut them out of your life and move on. Obviously you don’t see everyone’s life in an hour tv episode, but Farrah’s lack of respect and horrible attitude are not just dubbed in. Also — excellent decision making buying a puppy. It’s doubly disgusting to me that she is making more than most teachers and people who actually try and do something to make this world a better place. If people had any sense, they wouldn’t buy anything she puts out or endorses.
