‘Teen Mom’ Farrah Abraham: ‘I’m A Role Model, Not A Whore!’

The ‘Teen Mom’ with fake boobs claims viewers will see the REAL HER in the new season of the MTV show.

Farrah Abraham insists her image as a body-obsessed man-eater is all wrong — she’s a caring mom who spends her spare time counseling  pregnant teens and other young parents.

“I believe I’ve earned that title (role model).” Farrah, 20, tells TVGuide.com. “I take time and give advice to other teen moms and teenagers … and it helps their lives. I care about other people. That’s why I do this show.”

She’s convinced the original ‘Teen Moms’ are such great role models, the new cast of 16 & Pregnant — the show Farrah started out on — should be watching and learning from them.

Farrah says, “I’m going to answer this honestly: I feel like the girls that choose to be on the other show (16 & Pregnant) should’ve learned from us. I allow cameras to be here even when I need a break… and I might make myself look like an immature spoiled brat sometimes, but I’m just trying to convey a message so other girls learn from it. I know that Maci, Amber, myself and Catelynn have really improved, really worked hard. We have lots of stress, and we show that and try to grow from it. I just hope the other girls try to do the same.”

So it hurts Farrah when fans criticize her online, suggesting she’s a bad parent to her daughter Sophia: “I don’t think they realize I’m with Sophia a lot. I work hard, and when I go out, (viewers) just don’t want to let it go. They [are] mad I’m taking a break. I hear a lot of, ‘Where’s your daughter? Why isn’t she with you? Why are you out with some guy?’

“I’m not a whore, I’m just getting a free dinner and some drinks, so why not?” she adds. “I feel bad for other single moms that have to hear the same s**t I hope it’s different for other people.”

Farrah admits she’s started dating again — but she’s along way off from having a serious relationship. Sophia’s father Derek Underwood died in a car accident before she was born, and Farrah admits she’s found it hard to move on.

“I’m pretty positive you might see me on a date again. The fun thing is I get to go on dates and meet random guys and not be so serious.”

Her main man problem? Finding a genuine guy: “I get emails and letters at home like, ‘Find me on Facebook,’ but how many of those guys are really sincere? When the right person comes, then I’ll accept him into our lives, but right now I’m not trying to have a relationship. Dating is more fun than a relationship right now for me.”

We can’t wait to see the new Farrah. What do you think, HollyMoms? Do you think she has been treated unfairly?
