Farrah Abraham: Suffering from Multiple Mental Illnesses?

Whether you love her or hate her, one thing is certain about Farrah Abraham: she's been through some stuff.

She got pregnant at 16 with her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Derek Underwood, and during the pregnancy, Derek passed away in a car crash.

After that happened, she didn't get a ton of emotional support from her parents, and we saw how much it all affected her in therapy sessions featured in those early seasons of Teen Mom OG.

We also saw her mother, Debra Danielsen, slap her, and while the incident itself wasn't filmed, we also saw the aftermath of an incident involving Farrah, Deb, and some police officers.

You remember — they got into some sort of fight, Farrah called 911, and when officers arrived to their house Deb answered the door holding a knife, because cooking waits for no one, not even the law.

Farrah has maintained that she suffered horrific abuse during her childhood, but her parents have denied it — it really is a mess.

And now, Debra is introducing another little piece of this sad puzzle: she's claiming that her daughter suffers from both borderline personality disorder and narcissistic personality disorder.

Debz made an appearance on a webshow called Shot Topics, where she discussed Farrah, Teen Mom, her wedding, and more.

To start, she was asked about Farrah being fired from the show — she says she actually found out about it from the tabloids, which is a neat way of learning your daughter pretty much cost you your job.

She also says that she doesn't know much about the whole thing, since her relationship with Farrah is a little tough right now, but she does know that "she terminated any relationship or agreement" in regards to filming those adult webcam shows.

And that's strange, since that pretty much seemed to be the reason she cut ties with MTV, because she wanted to be able to work in the adult industry.

But still, Deb says that the reason she's not doing Teen Mom is that she wants to focus on scripted television, which should be a fun adventure for all of us!

Later, she starts talking about how it might have been a good idea for Farrah to take a step back from filming anyway, so she could focus on her own wellbeing.

From there, she starts making some general statements about mental illness, how there's nothing shameful about it and how treatment can help so much, which is a wonderful sentiment to express.

It's also pretty clear who she's talking about.

"If you have borderline personality disorder, if you have narcissism, if you have any of these kinds of things," she says, "they're all highly treatable."

"All is not lost, but I will say deep down inside I know my daughter, she's kind, she's loving, she's sweet and very compassionate."

She adds that she thinks Farrah works hard, "she just needs to step back a moment and take some time and get healthy and take time for her so she can heal."

When asked specifically if she thinks Farrah has those disorders, she said that she does.

It's kind of a weird thing to reveal about your daughter in an interview, but Farrah once claimed Debra has Asperger's, so maybe that's just a fun family activity for these people, you know?

Whether or not Farrah really does suffer from borderline personality disorder and/or narcissistic personality disorder, it seems pretty clear that Deb is right about one thing.

The girl could definitely use plenty of time to focus on herself and work through some stuff away from cameras, whether the cameras are for Teen Mom or porn or anything else.

Mike MacDonald Dies; Stand-Up Comedian Was 63

Mike MacDonald, a popular stand-up comedian well known and respected throughout Canada, passed away on Saturday at Ottawa Heart Institute as a result of heart complications.

He was 63 years old.

mac, mike

MacDonald’s brother confirmed this sad piece of news to CTV News early on Sunday.

The passing has especially resonated in Montreal because MacDonald had performed at the Montreal-based Just For Laughs comedy festival more times than any other performer.

Tweeted this event from its official social media account:

“Saddened to hear of the passing of our dear friends and Canadian comedy legend Mike MacDonald.

“Over the years he has graced our stages more than any other comic and will be greatly missed.”

The son of a Royal Canadian Air Force officer, MacDonald was actually born in Metz, France.

He started his comedy career at the age of 24, moving to Toronto in order to perform at various venues once he quit his full-time job in order to focus on this industry for a living.

In the wake of MacDonald’s passing

Over the years, MacDonald was featured on such programs as Late Night with David Letterman and The Arsenio Hall Show, while also starring in three specials for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

They were: “Mike MacDonald; On Target,” “My House! My Rules!,” and “Happy As I Can Be.”

In 2013, MacDonald underwent liver transplant surgery after a hepatitis C diagnosis two years earlier progressed to the point of organ failure.

It is unknown at this time whether that condition contributed to his unexpected death over the weekend.

Amy Roloff Prepares for Easter, Hears It from Jesus Fans

Without intending to do so, Amy Roloff has managed to make a plateful of cookies seem controversial.

The Little People, Big World star jumped on Instagram last week to share a delicious looking photo.

It features Amy sitting alone at a table, except for the yummy items in front of her; from mini muffins to some kind of bread and even a few painted eggs.

“I’m already planning for Easter,” she wrote to open a lengthy caption, continuing as follows:

“It’s a special time and celebration to me because what Jesus did! And I’m with my family. Amy Roloff’s Little Kitchen is all about sharing what I love with you.

“Recipes, food and why I love being in the kitchen making delicious baked goods and meals. That gather people together and around the table.”

So… why the aforementioned controversy?

Because Easter is arguably the most sacred and important of all Catholic holidays.

It is meant as a celebration for the surprising resurrection of Jesus Christ.

And Amy is using it as a way to shill for her website and her company?!? Does she have no sense of decorum or respect?!?

So argues a few harsh critics, at least.

“Really, Amy?!? Must you exploit this holiday for your own selfish gain?” wrote one follower in response to this post.

The post, meanwhile, goes on a bit more:

I remember how I loved coloring eggs w/ my kids and hiding them before they woke up to find them. And making Easter baskets with something special in it that reminded them what Easter truly is all about. I

’d baked a lemon poppy seed bread (in photo) quiche, cheesecake, honey baked ham and other goodies for our meal. I get excited just thinking about it.

We get hungry just thinking about it.

But some get angry.

“Just stop, Amy,” said another hater. “Of ALL days, this one is not about you.”

In the past, Amy’s daughter also got dragged for using God and religion to pitch her own products.

Amy, meanwhile, typically hears it from trolls who don’t approve of her romance with Chris Marek.

But he wasn’t the source of contention this time around.

Concluded Roloff in her caption:

My kids are all grown up now and it’ll be fun to see them with their kids at Easter and start their own traditions. What are some of your Easter traditions and things you make? Check out Amy Roloff’s Little Kitchen at www.amyjroloff.com.

Thank you for your support and encouragement. Have a wonderful almost Spring day.

Roloff also used the hashtags “#amyroloffslittlekitchen,” “#Easter,” “#celebratetraditions,” “#familylife,” and “#sharingourstory.”

What do you think of this scandal?

Is it really a scandal?

Is Amy just doing what any entrepreneur anywhere would do?

Or should Easter really not be a holiday that gets the hashtag treatment because it is too sacred?

We want to hear your opinion, readers!
