The drama’s coming, y’all! On the April 20 episode of ‘Teen Mom OG,’ it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for — the return of Farrah! Well HollywoodLife.com spoke exclusively to Sophia’s mom all about the struggles she has, the catfights with the girls, and of course, her boyfriend being shown on camera.
“I think Teen Mom OG now finally gets real, and it is an actual show,” Farrah Abraham told HollywoodLife.com about her big return to the MTV series, Teen Mom OG. Of course, she hasn’t been featured in the first few episodes since she was hesitant to rejoin — and she’s had some feuds with the other ladies. We told you that she finds Maci Bookout to be rather “fake,” but this time around, she’s focusing on herself and Sophia, and we can expect to be very entertained.
Farrah Abraham Returns To ‘Teen Mom OG’ — Interview
So, how has it been not being on the first few episodes of Teen Mom OG?
I said to the producers when they said they wanted to move on without me, I wish you all the best. I even threw a little Teen Mom party the first opening episode. So believe me, I’m supportive for whatever they wished it once to be without me. But I know that I live a greater lifestyle and I hope that others see how I’m moving forward rather than staying in the past.
Have you ever felt like an outcast with the others?
I always felt I had a different life, whether that’s being an outcast or not. I’m taller, I’m more outgoing, I’m a little bit of my own person and I really don’t like to persuade people and suck up and be fake. You know what? I don’t believe in that. And hopefully, I’m a leader in some way and inspire others to be better than what they are.
One man on your side is your new man Simon, who will be on future episodes of Teen Mom OG?
Simon! Yes, of course you will see him on the show and I think MTV has really tried to make that happen. And I think when I feel the pressure from MTV to have my boyfriend on the show, I can’t imagine the pressure and everything else that the other cast members get for bringing on new boyfriends and having kids and every other thing, so I am just trying to deal with that. But I really don’t feel like overly exposing any relationship because I don’t think that’s healthy.
How does Simon handle all the cameras and attention?
Simon doesn’t really care. He has his own life and he’s pretty focused and honed in and trying to grow his own companies, so he’s really doing it out of the love and kindness of his heart, dealing and putting up with it for me. So I’m happy that he got to be around.
Do why did you keep Sophia’s dad, Derek, off of the cameras in the beginning?
I let the cameras impact in a way of I didn’t want Sophia’s dad to be involved, I feel like the producers were trying to rush me and I actually stopped a relationship because of the cameras so because of those wrong reasons and wrong options at the time, I don’t let that affect this anymore. I honestly didn’t want him to be on TV. I really thought that it would take us the wrong way in our relationship. And I think not including Derek, I mean, you saw some small conversations, but not including Derek has made me very regretful because that took away precious time to me before he passed away.
How does Sophia feel about Simon?
You will get to see their first meet up and you will get to see how it all really happens!
Well that is something we can’t wait for. Are you excited to see Farrah return, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
