Farrah Abraham has shown she knows how to play the fame game, whether it’s her role on Teen Mom, her Twitter feuds, or her sex toys and tapes. And when Farrah dares to compare, not even Kim Kardashian is safe when it comes to how Abraham views the world, pointed out People.
When Farrah first entered celebrity land, it was via 16 & Pregnant in 2009. Now, at 24, Abraham likes to look back smugly at her accomplishments, including the adult entertainment industry, singing, writing, Teen Mom, Couples Therapy, and Celebrity Big Brother.
Both within the world of reality TV and in her real life, Farrah has paid attention to how other celebrities succeed, and Abraham has kept her eyes on Kim Kardashian, who seems to have the prize when it comes to parlaying infamy from a sex tape into fame and fortune.
Moreover, Farrah dished on her analysis of her success versus Kim’s during an appearance on the Nik Richie Podcast.
“I’ve been beating out Kim on a lot of things,” boasted Abraham.
“I think I’ve surpassed [Kardashian] in certain aspects. Then again, I conduct myself and my brand in a different way and my life in a very different journey. I think I’m doing very well, if not better.”
If you compare how Kim’s sex tape did with how Farrah’s did, the meaning of the different “journey” becomes clear. For example, Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom co-starring porn star James Deen initially was described by Abraham as a private “sex tape” that accidentally got leaked. But there didn’t appear to be anything accidental about the follow-up film, which featured previously unshown footage from her initial movie, entitled Farrah 2: Backdoor and More.
Abraham also has experienced her share of backlash. Recently, fans were horrified when Farrah insisted that she did not know who Leonardo DiCaprio was. That discussion occurred just prior to the Oscars, and Abraham was questioned as to whether she thought Leo might win the Academy Award at last.
“So Leo, who is he?” asked a baffled Farrah. “And why do you believe he’ll win? I don’t know where or what we’re talking about.”
Then there’s Abraham’s behavior on Teen Mom. At one point, Abraham took a stance against Teen Mom OG, angry that producers would not let her be featured on a different reality TV show. When they told Farrah that to do so would constitute a breach of contract, Abraham showed a breach of conduct.
“White trash…dumb, twisted, motherf—–,” swore Farrah at Teen Mom OG producer Larry Musnik.
Abraham claimed she would refuse to work with them again.
Then there’s the question of Farrah’s mothering skills. Abraham has allowed her daughter, Sophia, to wear makeup, given her social media accounts, and paraded the big bucks when she lost a tooth.
And not even Kardashian has (as yet) tried to expand her brand with sex toys. Farrah decided to do so with replicas of her breasts and, ahem, other parts, then adding to the publicity by videotaping it.
Just like the Keeping Up with the Kardashians clan, Abraham also has become social media savvy. Among her most notorious moments on Twitter: Feuds with Kourtney Kardashian and Nicki Minaj.
Farrah slammed Kourtney following the announcement that she was pregnant again in 2011.
“Im Shocked Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant again, Did she not learn anything from TEEN MOM? Maybe its a fake pregnancy like kims wedding. SAD.”
Kourtney hit right back.
“Why would I have anything to do with teen mom? I’m 32 years old! I may look young honey, but don’t get it twisted,” tweeted Kardashian.
Farrah then heated up Twitter again by battling Nicki Minaj. This time around, it was not Abraham who started the feud, however. It began when Nicki was viewing Teen Mom OG. The rapper criticized Farrah’s behavior with her mother and posted a retweet about Sophia.
Abraham fired up with her own ammunition, criticizing Minaj for having videos that resemble “porn.”
In addition, Farrah has attacked both Khloe Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, reported ET Online.
That feud began when Khloe made fun of Abraham’s battle with Nicki on Kocktails with Khloe. Kendall then responded.
“I don’t really agree with Farrah’s decisions in life,” noted Jenner.
ET notes that to Abraham’s list of credits, she’s become famed in the adult entertainment industry with erotic novels as well as those sex toys. But she gained infamy on Celebrity Big Brother UK, with a fight escalating to the point that the show had to stop and cut off its feeds.
