‘Teen Mom’ Farrah Abraham: “I’m Not a Whore”

July 06, 2011 12:10 PM by Shayla Perry

Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham recently opened up about being ready to start dating again, but one thing she’s not looking forward to is the continued criticism she gets for being out without her daughter, Sophia. See what Abraham had to say about the changes we can expect to see in Season 3 of the MTV reality show and why she’s telling haters that she’s “not a whore,” but a role model.

Here’s what Farrah Abraham told TV Guide about…

How she’s changed in Season 3 of Teen Mom

[I'm] focusing really hard on my education and becoming more serious as an adult. I’m growing into more of my parent responsibilities, which I’m very proud of.

Her plans for her education…

Right now I’m on break. I start school in about a week and a half for my Bachelors in culinary managent so I can own my own restaurant or business.

How she’s dealing with the death of Sophia’s father…

I’ve been going to counseling and dealing with my grief. Losing somebody I loved and planned on having a relationship with was a big shock to go through, and I didn’t want to do it if I was doing a TV show. That’s the hard thing I had to make a choice about: How do I present this on TV and still be in my comfort zone? It’s something that’s pretty emotional, and I work through it daily. I think I’m working on it better now and trying to have relationships. It’s a process.

What she thinks of all the haters…

I don’t think they realize I’m with Sophia a lot. I work hard, and when I go out, [viewers] just don’t want to let it go. They [are] mad I’m taking a break. I hear a lot of, “Where’s your daughter? Why isn’t she with you? Why are you out with some guy?” I’m not a whore, I’m just getting a free dinner and some drinks, so why not? I feel bad for other single moms that have to hear the same s**t. I hope it’s different for other people.

What she thinks of the newest girls on 16 and Pregnant

I’m going to answer this honestly: I feel like the girls that choose to be on the show should’ve learned from us. I allow cameras to be here even when I need a break… and I might make myself look like an immature spoiled brat sometimes, but I’m just trying to convey a message so other girls learn from it. I know that Maci, Amber, myself, and Catelynn have really improved, really worked hard. We have lots of stress, and we show that and try to grow from it. I just hope the other girls try to do the same.
