But 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom aren’t the sole two shows that Abrahams has participated in as an active contestant. So let’s have a look at her career and her net worth in 2022 in this article.
Early Life and Reality TV Shows
The famed TV personality was born in the largest city of Nebraska, Omaha, on May 31, 1991, to parents Michael and Debra. The TV star got her big breakthrough in the year 2008 when she got selected to be a part of the very first edition of ’16 and Pregnant’. She was 17 years old then. When she broke the news of her pregnancy to her family, it caused quite the stir due to insensitive remarks made by her mother, Debra. Her mother went out of her way to call her degrading terms like ‘whore’ and even stopped the mother-to-be from getting an abortion. But Farrah’s troubles didn’t just end here. She was absolutely shattered when her boyfriend and the father of her kid, Derek Underwood, died in a freak car accident just a month before her delivery. Derek had apparently lost control of the car.
After giving birth to her and Derek’s daughter, Sophie Laurent Abraham, she continued to star in another renowned reality TV show ‘Teen Mom’. Teen Mom followed the same theme of documenting teen moms all over the United States and their ordeals throughout their pregnancy. Her stint at Teen Mom was no joke, with her starring in an impressive 60+ episodes.
Debra, with whom Farrah already shared a tumultuous relationship, got charged with assault in January 2010 when she hit her 18-year-old daughter then. The strained relationship between her and her mother became a constant source of stress for the ‘Teen Mom’ star. She finally chose to seek professional psychological help to discuss her issues with her mother and to cope with her emotions of grief on losing her boyfriend, Derek Underwood, to a car accident.
Starring in a couple of reality TV shows is not the only accolades for Farrah. She also possesses a certification in culinary arts. After gaining praiseworthy attention in the reality TV arena, she tried her hands out in the music industry. She released her debut album, ‘My Teenage Dream Ended’ in the year 2012. However, this album didn’t do that well with garnering enough criticism from people in the music industry. She also released her autobiography that very year with the same name as her debut album. She continued to star in other reality TV shows like Couples Therapy, Teen Mom OG, Ex on the Beach.
However, the star is taking her own time to focus on academics by being a part of the esteemed Harvard University.
