Well I'm going to handle this as tactfully as I can and just present the information.
Farrah Abraham undoubtedly has issues (which she is currently exploring while appearing ALONE on Couples Therapy) and apparently the root of many of these issues stems from a rape trauma and childhood abuse.
“I was drugged and raped more than once. I allowed the [wrong] type of people into my life,” Farrahclaims to In Touch Weekly. The former Teen Mom star also alleges that following the release of her "sex tape" she booked appearances at strip clubs and porn conventions which further put her life in jeopardy.
Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham is now expressing regret over leaving her daughter Sophia behind in Iowa while she moved to Florida months ago.
As reported two weeks ago, Farrah left 2-year-old Sophia behind in Iowa to live with her mom Debra Danielson, while she moved 1,600 miles away to attend school at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and to also pursue her modeling career. In a new interview with Life & Style, Farrah, 20, opens up about the regret and painful consequences of her decision.
“It was a very hard choice,” Farrah tells Life & Style, adding that she was “depressed” at the time. “The first couple of days [after leaving Sophia], I cried a lot.”
It however appears that several months later, Farrah has had a change of heart. “I miss my daughter a lot,” she says. According to Life & Style, Farrah has decided that she wants to move Sophia to Florida to come live with her.
“Farrah is in the process of bringing her to Florida for good,” a friend of Farrah’s confirms. “She has been talking to her mom about moving to Florida with Sophia. This way Farrah can still continue with her studies and have her daughter with her, and her mom would be there to give her the extra help she needs.”
Farrah’s ex-boyfriend Daniel Alvarez is however telling In Touch Weekly magazine that Farrah doesn’t have her priorities right. According to Daniel, Farrah is more concerned with partying than being a mom to Sophia.
“Farrah sometimes left Sophia with neighbors so she could go out,” says Daniel adding that Farrah has “big dreams” and wants to launch a clothing line and star in her own TV show.
OK! magazine chimes in reporting that Farrah usually ignores Sophia whenever she comes to visit her in Florida. “Sophia is either with a babysitter, because Farrah is out, or she’s being sent back to Iowa. One of the most important things for a child’s development is routine and stability and Sophia has neither,” says a source.
Farrah has also received some criticism for making her mom Debra, who was arrested in 2010 for chocking her, Sophia’s primary caregiver. The source adds that Farrah “had told pals her mom’s hit her before” that 2010 incident.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? IS SOPHIA BETTER OFF IN FLORIDA WITH FARRAH OR IN IOWA WITH DEBRA?
Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham graces the latest cover of Life & Style magazine as she opens up to the mag about the reason she gave up her baby.
On the Sept. 13 episode of Teen Mom, Farrah sobbed as she struggled with the decision to leave her daughter, Sophia, with her mother while she attends school in Florida. “I would never leave [my daughter],” said Farrah.
Well fast forward to today and Life & Style is reporting she did just that by leaving the 2-year-old behind in Iowa with her mother Debra Danielson, moving 1,600 miles away to attend school at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale while also pursuing her modeling career. Farrah, 20, has been in Florida the past several months and Debra has since become Sophia’s primary caregiver.
In her interview with the mag, Farrah defends her decision. “Sophia is the No. 1 thing in my life,” Farrah says. “I’m just trying to be the best parent that I can. I take care of my responsibilities. I’m happy that I took the chance to move. I would never regret it.”
Farrah also praises her mother Debra for stepping in to help. “My mom is the best grandma,” Farrah says. “I want her [Sophia’s grandmother] to be there for Sophia when I need to take care of my responsibilities, my education and earning an income for both of us.”
Farrah however admits she is also using this time to find herself since a number of her teen years were spent being a young mom and dealing with the death of Derek Underwood, the father of her daughter. The mag states Farrah’s “desperately trying to relive the youth she feels she was robbed of.”
“I’ve been trying to grow personally and emotionally,” Farrah admits. “I’m very much taking time to get back to myself and enjoy my freedom.”
But as more days go by, Farrah reveals she often struggles with her difficult decision. “She tells me she misses me and loves me. I’m tugged in many different ways daily — but I don’t want to limit myself or Sophia,” she states. Farrah also admits she doesn’t know when she’s coming back for Sophia.

Following the huge success of season 2 of MTV’s Teen Mom, the NYPost is reporting that a third season is already in the works.
According to the Post, the show has averaged 2.8 million viewers per episode for MTV this season, while also bringing in young female viewers for the network. In fact, the finale episode last week brought in over 6 million viewers for MTV.
So what does this mean? It means we can expect a whole lot more from these popular teen mothers. MTV has reportedly already began filming season 3, and was on hand to film Amber Portwood and ex-fiance Gary Shirley’s recent visit to a Tennessee waterpark.
And though the all new season of 16 and Pregnant doesn’t kick off until Oct. 26, the MTV network has reportedly already handpicked a few of the girls from the upcoming season to appear on their own Teen Mom spinoff. “We’re always exploring new production ideas, but can’t confirm anything at this time,” said an MTV spokeswoman of the news.
Moving on to last night’s 2 hour reunion episode which brought us an emotional break-down by each of the teenage moms. Farrah Abraham broke down when discussing her mom’s abusive behavior towards her while her mom Debra Danielson also broke down telling her daughter she loved her in spite of everything that has taken place.
The biggest breakdown came from Amber, who revealed she also grew up witnessing abusive behavior by her mother. Dr. Drew Pinsky then explained to her that she was continuing the cycle of domestic violence by hitting Gary. Amber claimed she didn’t remember attacking Gary and cried as she admitted she’s is uncertain about what direction to go in her life.
