Farrah Abraham Remembers Derek Underwood in Heartbreaking Tribute

Look, Farrah Abraham is awful. She’s really, truly just not a great person.

Like, at all.

But under that rough exterior, if you look past her rudeness and her inability to speak to literally anyone with the smallest amount of respect, you’ll see that she’s kind of a broken person.

Sure, she’s still awful, but she’s been through stuff, you know?

She’s hinted at some major trauma she experienced in her childhood, and we’ve seen on Teen Mom OG how bad her mother, Debra Danielsen, can be.

And then there’s the tragic story of her relationship with Derek Underwood.

Derek was Farrah’s high school boyfriend — and he’s also Sophia’s father.

They had a pretty dramatic relationship, as you’d expect with a couple of teenagers (one being Farrah Abraham). As she revealed in her book, her parents hated him.

At one point, her father caught them having sex in her bedroom and she claimed that he chased him out of the house with a knife.

Because of all those shenanigans, her parents wouldn’t allow her to see him, and so when he passed away in a car accident during her pregnancy, she’d never told him that he was going to be a dad.

If you watched the early seasons of Teen Mom, you know she really struggled with losing Derek.

And if you didn’t catch those old episodes, then all you have to do is check out this touching message Farrah wrote to Derek in an Instagram post commemorating the anniversary of his death.

Then you’ll see the heartache.

Along with a photo of his headstone, she wrote “In loving remembrance to Derek Underwood, 12/28/2008 father, son, nephew, cousin, friend, and so much more.”

“December 28th comes every year when we review all of our love, great memories, share stories and know how special Derek was and how all the special and highly favored charisma passed on to Sophia.”

(Yes, it doesn’t exactly make sense, but she’s trying, OK?)

“This past year Sophia was bullied for not having a father at her old public school,” she continued. “I thought why would any child not understand that’s out of ones control and no one would ask for that.”

“In a world full of ignorance and wrong doing I’m happy to say my daughter knows her truth and has strength in that beyond the ignorance.”

Farrah also touched on her troubled relationship with MTV, writing “This year I saw an employer long time production and my mother try to use my loss as their gain for heartache and to act as though they cared about my health and supported the struggles of the loss of Derek I go though …”

“But for years they could not let it be at peace as nothing needs to be relived and this year of review has spoken for those who can not live life peacefully with you and support your growth and are not excited for your future and living better, happier, healthier are no longer welcome.”

In a piece of advice for the team behind Teen Mom, she said “Don’t ever manipulate or take advantage of a mother or child as they go through loss & challenges it’s disgustingly evil.”

She also wrote “Thank you Daddy Derek for always watching over us and this year we’re at peace and happy with the loving support of family who live by this and we’re in loving spirits on our Hong Kong trip as Derek would love the heights & the water of Hong Kong island as he did of his rock queries.”

She closed her message “with love” from “Farrah & Sophia for those who want peace, life, love, happiness and a new chapter.”

Again, a lot of this doesn’t really make much sense at all.

But it’s obvious that Farrah really feels some deep, complicated feelings about what happened with Derek, and losing a boyfriend like that at such a young age must have been devastating.

Losing a boyfriend at such a young age while pregnant with his child?

It’s no wonder the girl’s got some issues.


Kobe Bryant’s Name ‘Keeps Coming Up’ for ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ Says Derek Fisher

Kobe Bryant … in the ballroom?? Maybe.  With “Dancing with the Stars” doing a full sports-themed competition with athletes next season, Derek Fisher told “Kobe’s name keeps coming up.” “He loves the show. He and the family watch…


Derek Jeter and Hannah Davis Welcome First Child!!!!!

Derek Jeter is the most clutch athlete in the history of modern day sports.

But he’ll soon be faced with pressure-packed situations that make plate appearances in the World Series seem like relaxing walks in the park.

How quickly can he change a dirty diaper?!? 

Can he heat up breast milk in efficient fashion?!?

Does he have a strong swaddling game?!?

These questions are now more pertinent than ever because Jeter is a first-time father!

Just a few minutes ago, The Players Tribune, an online publication started by the future Hall of Fame shortstop, posted the following message on Twitter:

“Congratulations Derek and @hannahbjeter on the birth of your baby girl, Bella Raine Jeter, born Thursday, August 17.”

No word yet on the child’s measurements or the exact time she entered the world, but we’re guessing she did so in dramatic fashion. Just based on the identity of her father.

The retired New York Yankees star and the supermodel announced in February that they were expecting a baby girl.

“Now, pregnant with our first child, Derek and I are looking to the future,” the model wrote on Jeter’s website. “Whatever her name is, I know she’ll run circles around him.

In a post that went viral, she added of her bundle of her impending children:

“They’re going to be born into such an extraordinary situation. They’re going to have to be some strong little people.

“We don’t want them to be defined by their dad’s name – for them, we want him to just be ‘Dad.’ That will be the piece of him they’ll have that the rest of the world doesn’t.

“It will be special, and it will be theirs.”

Following this afternoon’s big announcement, the Yankees also took to Twitter to send their well wishes to the new parents, Tweeting:

“Congrats to Derek & Hannah Jeter on the birth of their daughter, Bella Raine Jeter. We can’t wait to meet her!”

What great timing, too.

The Yankees are fresh off a four-game sweep of the New York Mets and start a three-game series against the hated Boston Red Sox tonight.

Hannah and Derek can rock their little girl to sleep while seeing if the latter’s former team can give itself a legitimate shot to win the American League East by taking a couple games in this series.

Jeter and Davis, it should be noted, began dating in 2012.

They tied the knot on a golf course at Meadowood Napa Valley Resort in St. Helena, California, in July of 2016.
