There was a time not too long ago when becoming a mother out of wedlock was shunned in society. For decades those who ‘got in trouble’ were judged heavily with their secrets hidden from family and friends. But that was a long time ago, and now being a teenage mother is a lucrative business, especially in the world of reality television. And thanks to the groundbreaking MTV reality television series Teen Mom business is booming with a cast of characters that are now part of our daily lives.
Fans of the ‘Teen Mom’ franchise will remember that when it originally aired it was called 16 and Pregnant debuting in 2009 and running for five seasons before changing its name to Teen Mom and ending its run in 2012. Eventually, the show returned as Teen Mom OG in 2015. The original series followed the lives of young mothers Maci Bookout (now McKinney), Catelynn Lowell (now Baltierra), Amber Portwood, and Farrah Abraham. They all experienced tons of drama while attempting to raise their children, though Abraham’s story arc took many twists and turns.
Abraham experienced many trials and tribulations during her time in the spotlight, but even leading up to her successful run on the series she endured many heartaches. Her child’s father, unfortunately, died before she gave birth and she also has constant friction with her mother. Years later she attempted to a singing career, but it didn’t go as well as she’d hoped. Her album, My Teenage Dream Ended, was widely panned by critics who were not impressed with what she had to offer.
Her single “On My Own” was derided as one of the worst works of pop music ever made, eclipsing Rebecca Black’s “Friday”. Feminist website Jezebel called the lead and sole single, “Finally Getting up from Rock Bottom”, “the most horrible combination of sounds to ever be assembled in the history of audio recording,” suggesting that while Farrah may have kept her baby, the song should have been aborted.
Soon after Abraham had a quick stint as a porn star and made some rounds on more reality television series. But in the past few years, she’s remained relatively quiet, focusing on her child.
Now, according to Pop Culture, Abraham is taking to social media to let everyone know how thankful she is this holiday season.
Farrah Abraham shared a “thankful” post with her fans via Instagram and teased a little something in the mix! The 28-year-old posted a photo of herself posed in pray hands with a black jacket, accessorized in diamond jewelry and fans loved every bit of it. In her caption, she teased that there would be an amazing print coming fans way real soon, and her photo could be a sneak peek into what fans can expect.
