Farrah Abraham is no stranger to controversy. The “Teen Mom O.G.” star made headlines in 2013 for appearing in an adult film,which she maintains is a leaked sex tape. Rather than run from the drama, Farrah capitalized on it, launching an empire that includes sex toys, racy novels and a camgirl business — but is it holding her back when it comes to matters of the heart?
The mother of one is all set to star in Patti Stanger’s new series, “The Million Dollar Matchmaker,” where she will be put to the test and have her proverbial walls broken down. In a preview for the episode, Patti sits down with Farrah, 25, to discuss some of her issues and she’s not sugarcoating anything. The modern day relationship broker questions many of Farrah’s career choices, telling her they are certainly going to create issues when looking for love. Patti calls for Farrah to leave the adult industry in her past. Farrah defends her decisions, calling them “legitimate businesses.”
“Where is the shame button on you?” Patti asks (via People magazine). “You are a woman and a mother with a 7-year-old daughter.”
On May 31, Entertainment Weekly reported that Patti, 55, was returning to reality TV to help rich folks find love. After the success of her series “The Millionaire Matchmaker,” which aired on Bravo for eight seasons, she landed a deal with WE tv. Rather than helping just anyone find love, Patti is setting up camp at Harrah’s Resort Southern California to revisit some of her most difficult cases.
Patti announced in 2015 that she was leaving Bravo. The news came amid rumors that she and Andy Cohen, creator of the “Real Housewives” empire and host of “Watch What Happens Live,” were feuding. Patti shared the news on Twitter, telling fans to pay attention to her social accounts, where she would be announcing a new project on “a wonderful new network.” At the time, a Bravo spokesperson said they “loved” Patti’s series and sent her well wishes for the future.
“We loved watching Patti Stanger find love for so many people over the last eight season on Bravo,” the spokesperson told EW at the time. “We wish her the best with her new endeavors.
It remains unclear whether Patti will be able to get through to Farrah. Tune in Friday at 9 p.m. EDT on WE tv to find out. You can also see more from Farrah when she returns to “Teen Mom OG” next month.
