Being a teen mom isn’t easy…except for when you’re Farrah Abraham.
The Teen Mom star recently sold her sex tape, titled Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom, to Vivid Entertainment for a good chunk of change.
“I am happy with the seven-figure settlement I have reached with what I feel to be the best adult entertainment company in the industry, Vivid,” Farrah recently said.
And now she is heading for solo stardom. The single mom to 4-year-old daughter Sophia has just signed a deal to shoot her own reality show.
“Get ready for better TV The News Is True,” Farrah tweeted Tuesday along with a link to a Starcasm story announcing her new venture.
“MAJOR NEWS!! Spinboi Films has signed Teen Mom Farrah Abraham to develop a new reality docu-soap! TV magic coming soon!” Spinboi posted on its Facebook page.
The New York-based production company also wrote, “@F1abraham Such a pleasure meeting with you today…you’re a star!!! @GRMediaFirm.”
So, apparently all you need to do to make it in Hollywood is:
- a) have unprotected sex;
- b) land an MTV reality show about raising a child as a teen mom;
- c) make a sex tape.
So just to summarize, everything we are trying to teach our daughters NOT to do, is actually what makes dreams come true in Tinseltown.
Not only do reality shows on teen pregnancy seem to glamorize teen motherhood, it seems they’re a gateway to fame and stardom for ‘breakout’ stars such as Farrah.
Are these lessons from the Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian school of celebrity?
Sure, it seems Paris’ stardom has almost faded, but Kim is one of the most famous women in the world right now…and, yup, it all started with porn.
Just like the path Farrah is on, Kim shot to fame after her sex tape and subsequent reality TV shows. She has since had an over-the-top wedding to a relatively unknown NBA star, Kris Humphries, and filed for divorce 72 days later. The brunette beauty is now expecting her first child in July – while still married to Humphries – with her new beau, rap superstar Kanye West.
Ahhhhhh, why do these women have more money than me after I slaved at university for seven years? What is wrong with our society?
Call me old fashioned, but why aren’t we shining the light and giving recognition to successful young women? Where is the reality show for young girls who excel at high school, give back to their communities, show leadership skills, invent new products, and fight for a better future?
But unfortunately, networks seem more interested in selling-out people and shining the light on those who compromise their integrity for fame and fortune.
Or maybe it’s just me?
