Former “Teen Mom” star Farrah Abraham is none too happy after appearing on Bethenny Frankel’s talk show. She said she thought the episode was going to be about empowering women, but the teen mom-turned-porn star was apparently blindsided when the audience asked her rude questions about how she is bringing up her daughter.
The episode was supposed to be “no judgment,” but that’s not the way it came across to Abraham. Audience members essentially bickered with the “Teen Mom 2” star about her decision to pluck her daughter’s eyebrows when she was sleeping. Abraham defended it by saying her fans wrote and said they wished their mothers had done the same, even though her daughter was only three.
But the audience members weren’t the only ones who put Abraham on the spot; apparently the former “Real Housewives of New York” star also had some tough questions for the 22-year-old on how she was raising her now 4-year-old daughter Sophia and the show didn’t turn out into the upbeat chatfest Abraham had hoped for.
“Before going on the show, I was told that it would be a positive and inspirational talk for mothers and businesswomen,” the reality star-turned-adult film star told Radar Online. “But as soon as I met Bethenny, it turned into a judgmental zone. She did not like how I valued my daughter’s opinion and care so much about her that I allow her to have her own voice.”
Abraham didn’t go into detail about her daughter’s own voice, but she did elaborate on her toddler’s unibrow. “She brought up very old, misconstrued tabloid topics like my daughter’s unibrow and had judgmental women who were in the audience act disrespectful towards me and twist my opinion -- as a mother, I care about my daughter’s hygiene -- to suggest Sophia would not be beautiful, even if she had a unibrow,” the 22-year-old said. “It was rude and I felt Bethenny siding with these women and their untrue statements.”
Abraham recently launched a line of sex toys and didn’t like the way Frankel talked about that either. But the former reality star had an easy explanation for why she wasn’t so well-received on the show: Frankel is “degrading to women” and her sex toys are for men, not women, anyway. “Perhaps her ex-husband Jason will be purchasing my sex toys,” she snipped. They’re not for “women like Bethenny,” she added.
“During the show, she brought up my sex toy line… and tried to encourage the audience to not buy my line because ‘I’m a Teen Mom and that’s all I will ever be,’” Abraham concluded.
According to Radar Online, the episode of Frankel’s show that features Abraham is set to premiere on Monday at ABC at 3 p.m. EST. Check out a clip from the show below:
