If you’ve read celeb magazines at any point over the past decade, you’ve likely heard about Farrah and her XXX track record! But first, a little about her backstory: Farrah became a Teen Mom at the age of 17 in 2009 when she gave birth to Sophia Laurent Abraham. Tragically, Sophia’s father and Farrah’s baby daddy, Derek Underwood, died in a car crash just two months before Sophia’s birth.
After this girl from Council Bluffs, IA, found fame on 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom, she released a debut studio album and a memoir (both titled My Teenage Dream Ended, depressingly), got an associate degree in culinary arts from Florida’s Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, and launched a “Mom & Me” pasta sauce line.
In 2013, Vivid Entertainment released a “leaked” sex tape of Farrah and professional porn star James Deen, which she claims she sold to the company for $1.5 million. (By the way, we’ve got the intel if you wanna know how much the Teen Mom cast gets paid.)
Amid fan outcry, Farrah defended her X-rated decision. “You have been a single mom for four years, off-and-on, dating loser-ass boys who always try and sell information, lie to you, manipulate you,” she explained in a Keek video. “You have just realized you are an awesome person and you deserve someone. Now that you’re 21, you’ve pretty much been crying every night because you are single and alone. So, you make your own video, celebrate your awesome body [and] get your own sexy shots.”
FYI, Farrah has spent a lot of money maintaining that “awesome body” — she went under the knife for a nose job, and suffered through an unfortunate reaction to lip injections. See her and the rest of the Teen Mom cast before and after plastic surgery.
Farrah has also starred on Couples Therapy — famously appearing on the show with her mother instead of a significant other — as well as Celebrity Big Brother and Marriage Boot Camp. But, Teen Mom will always be the 26-year-old’s home base!
