Is She Okay?
We’ve all seen what being famous from a young age can do to people. Sure, many child stars grow up to be well-adjusted and stable adults, but just as many go on to lead difficult lives with their names in headlines constantly for a variety of erratic behavior. The young cast of Teen Mom has an even more extreme experience when it comes to child stardom, as most of them have been on camera since the literal second they were born.
Many of the cast members have done what they can to make sure that their children grow up humble and stable, like Gary Shirley, who constantly reminds his daughter Leah that her family is no different just because they’re on TV. Then, there’s Farrah Abraham, who has an entirely approach to parenting.
Sophia has had a very unique upbringing, and has been the center of parenting scandals from the day she was born. Is it possible that all of this is taking a serious toll on her mental health? This recent clip from Teen Mom OG is pretty difficult to watch, and it might reveal a seriously messed up state from Sophia.
A Unique Childhood
Ever since Sophia Abraham was born, she’s been making headlines for her mother’s choices. Fans were scandalized after Farrah revealed she had plucked Sophia’s eyebrows when she was only one year old. In another instance, people worried about Sophia’s spoiled nature when the “Tooth Fairy” (aka Farrah) gave her $600 for losing teeth! Sophia now has a Twitter account, an Instagram account, and even has started a modeling career. It goes without saying that not much of this is what your average child would experience. In fact, Farrah was recently slammed for promoting her adult entertainment videos on Sophia’s Twitter account and even for allowing Sophia to post “suggestive” pictures to her social media!
On top of all of the fame and attention, Sophia has been undergoing some pretty drastic life changes as well. Her grandmother and mother, Debra and Farrah, have been constantly fighting because of Debra’s new husband, David Merz. This rift in the family seems to have upset Sophia more than she’s let on, and this clip makes it seem that it’s taken a serious toll on her.
In the clip, Farrah, Sophia, and Debra go out for lunch together, and Farrah reveals one of Sophia’s upcoming milestones: She’ll be walking in a fashion show. “Can I come see you? I would love to see you there,” Debra coos.
Farrah asks where David is, and that’s when things start to get a little bit strange. Debra reveals that she and her fiancé will be planning for the wedding soon, and Sophia throws her crayon on the table. She starts growling, saying in a low tone, “Oh my God, I can’t believe you!” She continues to grumble, pushing her crayons around on the table.
Don’t Hit Yourself!
Debra shows Farrah and Sophia the back of her wedding dress. Farrah turns to ask Sophia how she likes the dress, but Sophia is busy — punching her own arm out of anger!
Farrah begs Sophia, “Do not punch yourself! Are you angry?” Then she takes Sophia into the bathroom so that they can talk in private. “You’re not happy hearing about the wedding?” she asks. “Cause it’s upsetting?”
Apparently, Sophia can’t even stand to be around her own grandmother! “I never want to see her again if she gets married to David!” she says.
It’s no secret that Farrah is not the biggest fan of Dr. David, and apparently Sophia has picked up on her feelings. The child has made it perfectly clear that she wants nothing to do with her current step-grandfather!
