Farrah Abraham and DJ Brian Dawe want us to believe they've been secretly dating since May. Yeah, no. But, I'm willing to play along for a minute to share Brian's interview with Orlando Weekly, where he pretends to know about Farrah learning from her mistakes and MTV exploiting young girls on Teen Mom.
First Brian says he was caught off guard when their relationship was outted by the press last week. So he didn't notice the paparazzi Farrah mostly likely invited to their "romantic stroll" in the park? "It's something I never expected to be brought into," Brian says about the media attention.
"I wasn’t really expecting for [our relationship] to come out," continues Brian. "I mean, I didn’t know when it would come out, or if it would, so it kind of caught me by surprise. But I knew it was a big ordeal when people started calling my mom’s house asking about it."

The interviewer points out that Farrah is not well-received by the media.
"I think a lot of people give her a bad rap," shares Brian. "She might not have the best reputation in the media right now, but I think she's improved herself a lot. She's fixed a lot of the past mistakes she made." Hmm. Examples please!
reads his script ponders why nobody ever calls out MTV for taking advantage of young girls on Teen Mom.
"I think the culture of reality television, especially with younger people, is very damaging," says Brian. "The fact that MTV and Viacom exploit 16-year-old girls – it’s clear they don’t care about the long term or the mental health of these people, and it’s a travesty that they are willing to sacrifice integrity for entertainment."
Brian continues, "These young people, they get thrust out into the limelight, and that’s something they have to deal with for the rest of their lives. You look at a lot of young people put into the spotlight at a very young age, from Miley Cyrus to Britney Spears to Justin Bieber, and they act out and they have to deal with this. There’s just this culture of exploiting young people. And it needs to change."
First of all, I don't necessarily disagree with Brian's opinion, but I'm not about to blame MTV for Farrah's issues. She showed her true colors from day one, long before her life was forever changed due to being on TV. And let us not forget that being cast on a reality TV show, including 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom, is a choice. Unless you're Farrah, I guess. Being famous is her destiny.
