The bridge isn't burned!
If you’ve been keeping up with Farrah Abraham’s life on Teen Mom, you know all about her relationship with Debra Danielsen. Although the two never really saw eye-to-eye, their relationship has steadily been in decline for a while now, and it got to the point where the two weren’t even speaking to each other. Farrah and Debs took to Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition where they duked out issues of Farrah’s childhood and her upbringing.
Anyone who watched them on MBC knows that things didn’t end well between them. In fact, for many, it seemed that they would never be reunited as mother and daughter. However, it looks like Farrah and her mother are putting their past behind them, and trying to work it out.
In the context of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition, Farrah and Debra did some heavy digging into her past. Farrah recounted a time that her mother was so explosive and violent during her childhood that the police came to address it. “Police officers had a f*****g gun to your head because my whole face was bleeding,” Farrah said on the show.
According to Radar Online, Council Bluffs Police Department in Iowa reported that the two were arguing about “child care issues as well as other problems,” and that “the victim was yelling at Danielson over the shirt throwing and Danielson grabbed her by the throat. The victim pushed Danielson’s hand away from her. Victim stated that Danielson then hit her along the side of her head and hit her in the mouth.”
However, Debra has denied any kind of abuse in her relationship with her daughter. “She’s never been abused as a child,” Debra said, according to Radar. “Even if she was abused, look at all the millions of people out there who suffered. They don’t blame the world for it. They have to grow up,” she continued. “It’s time to grow up and get over it!” Needless to say, Farrah didn’t take well to Debra’s response.
They also have complications due to Debra’s relationship with Dr. David, who doesn’t see eye-to-eye with Farrah. In fact, the two have had their fair share of screaming matches and bickering on the show, and it has driven a wedge in the mother and daughter relationship.
Patching Things Up
But now it looks like the two have found common ground to spend more time together. “It was my mom’s 80th birthday so Farrah and Sophia came to Iowa to celebrate with my family,” Debra told Radar. “It was a great surprise.” According to Debs, they spent some quality time together. “We reminisced,” she told Radar. “I enjoyed our time together. It was good seeing Farrah and Sophia.”
That said, Debs doesn’t seem to think that all of their frustration and fighting is in the past. “There is common ground to be found,” she told Radar. “We haven’t found it yet. It’s hurtful that we find ourselves in this situation. I’m praying to God for reconciliation.” She added that there is still “work to be done.”
