It’s one thing to watch Teen Mom as a fan, but to watch your own life unfold in front of millions is what Farrah Abraham experiences every week with new episodes of the hit MTV series.
And Farrah is opening up to MomFinds about this past week’s episode where she plans a move to Arizona with her daughter Sophia as well as why she always calls her dad “Michael.”
Here is an excerpt from the interview:
Why did you decide to invite your parents to visit Arizona with you?
I wanted to invite my parents because they met in Arizona and my dad lived there with my grandparents for years. I thought they would help me find a great place for Sophia and me.
Do you think your parents really understand why you want to move?
My parents are not supportive of me moving, so asking for them to be understanding is completely unrealistic at this point. They still need time to take it in.
Do you feel like they are trying to holding you back or keep you under their control?
Yes, very much so. I think it was very noticable from last night’s episode.
Having seen the episode, do you have any regrets?
The only thing that would have made a difference is if I went to Arizona on my own. Other than that, I have no regrets. The fight with my parents in Arizona just confirmed to me that I can’t rely on them for helping me make choices for moving.
Do you wish you could take anything back?
I don’t take anything back. I’m open and real and true to my feelings. I have nothing to hide and my parents love me for that.
Also—random question—have you always called your dad Michael?
Everyone asks this. I have a sister and we have different dads, so in all fairness to my sister I call my dad Michael just like she does and everyone else in my family. It works out fairly this way in my family. I do call my dad “Dad” sometimes. If others look at this as a disrespectful thing then you can talk to my mom about it. I never started it, I was taught to do it this way.
