Say what you will about Dr. Phil, but this time he might be right on the money. Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham appeared on his program to defend herself over her DUI arrest and pornographic film, but received no sympathy from the celebrity psychologist.
Abraham has been the subject one head-scratching scandal after another in recent months, despite the generally sympathetic situation she found herself in while on Teen Mom.
Since those days, she has been busted for DUI, and found herself at the center of a sex tape scandal, in which she requisitioned a film to be professionally made between herself and pornographic actor James Deen.
Deen leaked the truth behind the tape to the media, and Abraham, feeling betrayed, has criticized him for breaking her trust while demanding millions of dollars for their film.
That’s the gist of her story, and of her reasons for appearing on Dr. Phil, where the 21-year-old seemed prepared to gather sympathy over her situation.
“You have an incredible sense of entitlement, and when you don’t get your way, you get upset.” Dr. Phil told a shocked Abraham while his audience cheered him on.
“You’re pretty much perfect, aren’t you?” Dr. Phil asked.
“That’s what I strive to be,” Abraham shot back.
The two traded blows, and the conversation got quite heated until the end, when Dr. Phil largely dismissed her recent troubles as conundrums of her own design.
“You would argue with a fence post,” he said. “You have a chip on your shoulder, and you argue instead of being accountable.”
“I just think you’re being really negative,” Abraham scoffed.
What do you think? Is Farrah Abraham a victim, or is Dr. Phil correct about her? Either way, whatever lesson Dr. Phil tried to impart to Abraham, it didn’t seem to stick. The reality TV starlet tweeted Friday after her appearance:
YAY Friday! I’m responsible , accountable & free from all the twisted BS you read & see PEACE:)
