The most hated mom in America isn’t Casey Anthony, Andrea Yates, or the mommy blogger who poisoned her son. It’s a 23-year-old single mom who allegedly grew up in an abusive household, gave birth to a baby at age 17 because her mom refused to allow her to get an abortion, and lost her baby daddy in a car crash when she was eight months pregnant. A mom so controversial, the former Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Taylor Armstrong called her a “fucking rat.”
America’s current favorite Whore of Babylon is, of course, Farrah Abraham, the most controversial teen mom on MTV’s very controversial Teen Mom.
This week Abraham released her first erotic novel, In the Making (Celebrity Sex Tape), about a reality TV star named Fallon Opal who purposefully releases her own sex tape. If the plot sounds familiar it’s because last year Abraham starred in Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom with porn star James Deen. Despite the fact that a cameraman clearly recorded the porno, Abraham has claimed the video was a “leaked sex tape” she made with a boyfriend: “I am not involved in porn,” she said on VH1’s Couples Therapy, while discussing the porno and her sex toy line.
Deen has called Abraham’s bluff, telling TMZ that he never dated Abraham and she wanted to make a porno. Following the anal controversy, Abraham appeared on VH1’s Couples Therapy, where her other alleged “boyfriend” failed to show up for filming. Unsurprisingly, the media accused Abraham of lying to star on a reality show. I would dismiss Abraham as another famewhore who sucks at lying, but in 2012 she released a critically acclaimed noise album, My Teenage Dream Ended. On the album, Abraham cathartically wails about her traumatic experiences against a confusing medley of sounds, creating heartbreaking songs The Atlantic compared to the music of Daniel Johnson and other outsider artists.
Is Abraham a broken starlet who pathologically lies because she grew up on reality TV or the last outsider artist—the Bjork of reality TV, as my friend called her—who is using interviews and an erotic novel to fuck with the public’s perception of reality? I invited Abraham to the VICE office to find out.
and you are lucky enough to be able to watch the video
Farrah Abraham has no intention of reliving her tryst with porn star James Deen by watching her just-released sex tape, Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom. “Well, looks like Vivid released their version of my video,” the 21-year-old tweeted May 6. “I’m not watching, but thank you all for the positive compliments.”
Hours later, the former MTV reality star added, “I know what’s out. Don’t talk to me about it. Thanks.” The single mom also retweeted a fan who viewed the sex tape and thought Abraham had a “fantastic body.” Deen, meanwhile, has been jokingly plotting his next move via Twitter. “Am I supposed to have sex with Amanda Bynes? Is that what I am supposed to do? I am confused,” he wrote May 6. “Wait . . . what?”
After news of the tape’s existence went public, Abraham reportedly brokered a $1 million deal to distribute the video through Vivid Entertainment. She had initially hoped for a bigger payday, telling Us Weekly on Apr. 10, “I will not be settling for anything less then a couple million.”
(In a May 4 Keek video, Abraham said the sex tape was meant to celebrate her “awesome body” and asked fans to empathize with her. “You have companies interested [in the tape]. Why not sell it?” the Teen Mom alum asked. “That’s what I did.”)
The company’s founder, Steve Hirsch, said the footage is “amazing” and also quite graphic. “I think many fans will be shocked at how truly explicit it is,” he said in a statement. “Farrah is gorgeous, sexy and absolutely uninhibited. Farrah’s looks remind me of a young Kim Kardashian, and we all know how her story turned out.”
