Farrah Abraham’s daughter, Sophia, is nine years old, which means that it’s been nearly a decade now that she’s been in the public eye.
And somehow, against all odds, she keeps on getting worse.
Things keep going steadily downhill for Farrah, but they seemed to have picked up speed last year, when she decided to get big into those cam girl shows.
After doing a couple of them, Teen Mom OG producers sat her down to talk about them, as well as her anger issues and her habit of disrespecting crew members.
She didn’t appreciate the talk, and when she was offered another chance to stay on the show if she’d just quit the porn and act like a decent human being during filming, she declined and decided to cut ties with MTV instead.
Things got really bad after that — she went on all these delusional rants about being a victim of hate crimes, and she really seemed to be in a bad place emotionally.
She sued Viacom for many strange, nonsensical reasons, she lashed out at anyone she could think of, and she made some incredibly bizarre statements.
Will you ever be able to forget the time she said that she and Sophia take nude photos of each other and save them on their phones?
We know we won’t.
The point is that things have been extra bad for a long time now … and that they got even worse last week, when she was arrested.
You’ve probably heard this story a few times by now, but it’s still a good one: Farrah was at the Beverly Hills Hotel when she got into an argument with some people that was bad enough that a security guard asked her to leave.
It’s Farrah, so she didn’t listen. Instead, she allegedly hit the guard, which is what got her arrested.
Not surprisingly, the cops who arrested her reported that she seemed intoxicated, and witnesses said that during the altercation, she was yelling things like “you should know who I am.”
She spent a few hours in jail, then was right back to being just as insane as ever.
She’s said more than once now that all the reports, including the police report, apparently, are all lies, and that she’s being bullied because she’s famous.
You know, typical Farrah nonsense.
But in this new interview she did with Us Weekly, she’s explaining what she told Sophia about the arrest.
And it’s … well, it’s not great.
“I actually did explain everything to her,” she says. “As it happens, you gotta just say unexpected things may occur and you just gotta keep your cool.”
“You can be so nice to a certain extent and then it’s like, ‘Whew.’ People will try to ruin your career and you do nothing to have that happen.”
She adds that “I’m just working hard and we are on track.”
“I’m just thankful I didn’t get really in trouble because I really would’ve been sad about that, if it were my fault.”
It’s hard to understand exactly what she’s saying here, as always, but the gist of it is that after being arrested for hitting a security guard, she simply told her daughter that people were out to get her and that it wasn’t her fault at all.
Which doesn’t seem like the healthiest way of explaining something like that to a kid, you know?
Farrah doesn’t sound too concerned about how Sophia handled the situation though.
Instead, she says “It was very confusing for me and I wish that no other single mom or person in the public eye has to deal with that. It’s a confusing place to be in.”
So how confusing must it have been for Sophia, who doesn’t have another parent to fall back on if this one keeps getting arrested?
She’s got a plan for that!
“We had to go out last night for events and I was just very strict with my team about — hey, if someone has to go to the bathroom, we’re not leaving each other alone,” she says.
“Always have a buddy. Don’t be left alone and don’t be out until a certain hour.”
She really doesn’t believe any of this was her fault, does she?
Thoughts and prayers for Sophia, please, who has a long road ahead of her as Farrah Abraham’s child.
