This season of Charm School 3 has been filled with some major drama. Evidently mixing the Rock of Love Bus girls with the Real Chance of Love girls was a bad idea, or perhaps a genius idea? Depends on who you ask.
Two girls – one from each show- ended up quiting during the last episode. In this new interview with VH1, Farrah talks about her reasons for quitting and defends her “ghetto” comments. Below are excerpts from her interview plus more pictures of Farrah below -
I didn’t really understand why you were getting so upset at the elimination that led to your dropping out.
I was so pissed, I was actually pacing back and forth. Whenever they were up there, the girls from Real Chance of Love were standing there acting like they were total angels, and that’s fine. When I do stuff that’s wrong, like locking Brittaney Starr in the bathroom, I try to act like an angel, too. But they were making little comments. I don’t remember what they were, but it was just pissing me off. They were that mad that one of the Real Chance of Love girls was up there. Two of the Rock of Love girls were up there. Hello? Two Rock of Love girls already got sent home. It was hard to stand there and listen to all their comments, and it was frustrating that Ricki couldn’t hear them.
So it was just comments that bothered you enough to want to leave?
I knew that as soon as one of the Real Chance of Love girls was sent home, the rest were going to explode, because that’s what they do. It was never-ending. They were yelling the whole time, and when I say “they,” I mean Bay Bay Bay, So Hood, Ki Ki, Risky, K.O and Brittaney Starr. All that yelling was hard to deal with. I had to drink a lot to tolerate it.
Did Ricki momentarily convince you to stay after that?
I felt sorry for Ricki at that point. I know she didn’t want us to leave, but I was thinking at that point that she didn’t know what she was getting herself into. Neither did we, and I’m sure the Real Chance of Love girls felt the same way, because they didn’t want to be around us, either. Ricki didn’t know what to do, and I felt sorry for her because she’s a really sweet person.
You definitely did seem more willing than most to bridge the gap between the shows. You reached out to So Hood after Marcia called her “So Ho.”
Yeah, I tried to talk to her and she was like, “Whatever.” I talked to Ki Ki on the bus on the way there. She was nice and I was nice to her. Bay Bay Bay and I had a really good conversation one time and she was really sweet. The Real Chance girls really didn’t do anything to me besides saying, “Kiss my black ass,” and setting Brittaney Starr up to say stuff to me. But they weren’t looking to be friends, I don’t think. I really regret leaving because I know once a few people left, the group would be smaller and everyone would blend together.
At what point did you regret that?
The next day when I woke up in my hotel room. I was really sad and I had anxiety all day. I should have stuck it out. Sometimes you don’t realize you’re making the wrong decision until it’s too late.
Where are you with stripping?
I’m not doing it as much as I used to. If I need money and I’m not hosting events, I may go in. Most of the time if I go into work here in Myrtle Beach, I basically don’t even dance the whole time because so many people recognize me and ask me for pictures and buy me drinks, so it’s basically just like I’m going out in small, skimpy clothes. I never go on stage. People just give me money for sitting with them.
Let’s talk about your classification of some of the girls as “ghetto,” since some people read that as racist.
First of all, I want to apologize to anyone who took offense to that word. Obviously, their definition and my definition are different. My definition is loud, obnoxious and inconsiderate. It has nothing to do with color. Ghetto is not a color. I know white people that are ghetto, I know black people that are ghetto. It’s not a race thing for me. The people I referred to as “ghetto bitches” on the show weren’t just the black girls. It was Brittaney Starr and K.O, also. Plus, I’ve been ghetto more than a few times. I’m that way when I’m wasted a whole lot.
I think some of the confusion arose because a lot of people, especially white people, swap in the word “ghetto” when what they really want to say is “black.”
I understand that, I understand why people think it’s a racial thing. But that’s definitely not how I intended it. And then it’s like, why say, “Kiss my black ass?” Why call us “white girls?” Why call Ashley and me whores and sluts just based on how we’re dressed? It works both ways.
What about when you said that you weren’t quitting Charm School, you were dropping out? What’s the distinction?
That makes me laugh my brains out. I was wasted and it means the same thing. I was just trying to say something clever, I guess. I don’t know.
