Bad move, Farrah
Three: Sophia and the Sex Tappe
Speaking of Farrah’s porn princess days… This list wouldn’t be complete if it didn’t include the time Farrah revealed that she planned on showing Sophia her sex tape, Back Door Teen Mom, when she was ready to start dating.
In 2013, Farrah did an interview on King Mac Radio, an online entertainment radio show. While there, she recited the infamous words: “When she’s around 13 or 14, gets on her period, and is like, ‘Ooh, I kinda want a boyfriend,’ I think that’s the year to be like, ‘Look Soph…’”
Farrah followed up, saying, “I have a baby box for her, it has all the DVDs of Teen Mom, it has my book and of course, my [porn] video. Us going through these things together will make her life a whole lot easier.”
Sharing your mistakes with your children will save them a ton of time, tears, and tribulations. Farrah’s logic behind wanting to show Sophia her tape is arguably admirable, but fans weren’t trying to hear that… They accused Farrah of not be ashamed of her indiscretions.
If we’re being realistic though… The internet is a cruel, brutally honest place. If a random stranger doesn’t send it to her one day, Sophia is bound to find her mom’s tape on her own eventually. The same could be said for Kim K’s little ones.
If, by some unfortunate chance, Sophia goes on to make her own sex tape, Farrah will be there to talk her though it. Farrah said: “She probably won’t be saying that, she’ll be like, ‘I HAD to try it,’ and then I’ll be like, ‘Oh, you already did it, so I’m just going to make sure you know what you’re doing with it,’ because, you know, I’ll be like ‘this is what happened to me as your mom.’”
Four: Sophia and Fans
While Farrah quickly adjusted to (and embraced) the spotlight MTV gave her, Sophia struggled to do the same. Farrah doesn’t allow Sophia to shy away though; as the loving, encouraging mom she is, Farrah is teaching Sophia “empathy.”
“Sophia is so quick to be like, ‘I don’t wanna take a photo,’ or, ‘I don’t really want to talk to them,'” Farrah explained. “I understand that there’s a lot of people on us a lot of time and it’s a lot of giving, but I also want her to know that these people probably waited hours to meet her … So it’s just really helping her be more, I guess, empathetic, with her fans, and really knowing what they’re going through to meet her.”
Encouraging a child out of shyness is one thing, but pushing a six-year-old outside of her comfort zone and into fame is another thing.
