When we first met Farrah Abraham on 16 & Pregnant in 2009, she looked a lot different than she does today! From her many hair colors to body transformations, it’s safe to say the glow up is real for the single mom of one.
The beauty was cast for 16 & Pregnant after she got pregnant in 2008 with then-boyfriend Derek Underwood. During filming, Derek died in a car accident before the birth of their daughter, Sophia Laurent Abraham, in February 2009. After her episode aired on MTV, she was asked to star in the spinoff series Teen Mom, which premiered in December of that year. She starred on the show for seven seasons until she was fired in 2017 for pursuing a career in the adult entertainment industry.
Since her reality TV debut, Farrah has built quite a name for herself. In 2012, she published My Teenage Dream Ended, which was a New York Times bestseller. In 2013, she made her adult film debut. She even released her own line of sex toys in 2014. In addition to having several businesses in the adult industry, she also launched Mom and Me beauty kits in 2015 with Sophia and Mom and Me Wine with mother Debra Danielsen in 2016.
Some of her defunct businesses included her online furniture company, Furnished by Farrah, Sophia’s boutique, Sophia Laurent Children’s Boutique, and her Froco frozen yogurt shop. In 2019, Farrah began offering sex and relationship advice for $10,000 an hour and launched her own online master class, “Ambition Into Reality.”
In 2020, Farrah graduated from film school before enrolling in a master’s of liberal arts program at Harvard Extension School, before burning her Harvard sweatshirt and claiming “educational abuse.”
Farrah is always brainstorming her next big project and has no plans of slowing down. “I already have shows ready to go. I am just really waiting. I mean, I just can’t say anything, but one thing I will say about moving forward is it needs to be more diverse so that is more cultures,” she exclusively told In Touch in July 2020.
While Farrah wants to increase diversity in her future endeavors, she also wants to focus on “lifting up other women.” Thanks to the reality star’s college courses in business entertainment, she’s “very aware” of the “lack of women” empowerment in the film industry. “It’s like beat down my throat every day to use my celebrity, my power, my drive, my work ethic and my profession to help and lift others up in my next projects.”
Additionally, the entrepreneur made it clear she doesn’t always have to be in the limelight. “By no means, do I ever want to just have everyone focused on me. I think kind of sharing like a show or a TV show is really what I like to be about,” she told In Touch at the time.
Whatever she does, she’s certain her next project will “definitely going to make the world a better place,” she said, adding, “It’s going to lift women up. And I’m just really proud of my next shows.”
“I hope to have a star on the [Hollywood] Walk of Fame and I hope to do that in a credible and a wonderful way,” Farrah said of her long-term goals. “I will fight for what I believe in. And I’m super excited about my next show, so fingers crossed.”
