Farrah Abraham Is Opening A Froyo Shop And Her Logo “Coba The Poppin’ Boba” Is Beyond Creepy

Where to start with this one? Farrah Abraham, erotic novelist and star of such films as “Backdoor Teen Mom” and several seasons of “16 & Pregnant,” is opening her own frozen yogurt shop in Austin, Texas. Starcasm has the “exclusive” story on this gamechanger: Froco Fresh Frozen will be a “family-friendly” eatery, many of the foods will be Greek yogurt-based, and it is opening on October 1st. Also, their graphic design budget for the logo looks to have been about $25, tops. That’s the brand’s creepy logo, a bug-eyed critter named Coba The Poppin’ Boba. First of all, I had to Google the word “boba” to find out that it’s another term for bubble tea — which doesn’t explain why Coba The Poppin’ Boba is at a frozen yogurt shop, but I guess whatever, right? The important thing is that Farrah’s singing/vagina mold career was not lucrative and girlfriend is grasping at straws. Bubble tea straws. I wonder if James Deen is invited to the opening? (Probably not.) [Starcasm via WetPaint]

Farrah Abraham Cut From New Season Of “Teen Mom”

Farrah Abraham Wanted An Abortion But Her Mom Said “That’s Not Going To Happen”

Farrah Abraham Wanted An Abortion But Her Mom Said "That's Not Going To Happen"
"I don't believe in killing."

“She wanted to go get an abortion. … Then I turned to her and I just said, ‘We don’t believe in that. That’s a real person inside of you and we don’t believe in killing. That’s not going to happen.’”

There are all kinds of examples of why some of the parents on “16 & Pregnant” and “Teen Mom” are awful people. But if Farrah Abraham had the abortion she apparently wanted to have, as her mother Debra Danielson revealed on “Couples Therapy”? That wouldn’t have been one of those reasons. A pregnant 16-year-old Farrah apparently wanted to terminate a surprise pregnancy and her mother told her “That’s not going to happen.” While it isn’t clear whether Danielson physically prevented her daughter from getting an abortion — Iowa state law stipulates that a parent or guardian must be notified 48 hours before an abortion — it’s obvious that Farrah’s mother exerted pressure in other ways that took the decision out of Farrah’s hands. She didn’t have much of a choice in parenthood. As Jezebel blogger Tracie Egan Morrissey writes about this “Couples Therapy” clip, you actually feel really sympathetic towards Farrah. In all honesty, I find Farrah’s mom truly scary for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is because Danielson doesn’t believe in “killing” a fetus but is A-OK with hitting her daughter in the presence of her infant grandchild. [Jezebel]

Real Talk: Real-Life Teen Moms Sound Off On Study Claiming “Teen Mom” Reduced Teen Pregnancies

Real Talk: Real-Life Teen Moms Sound Off On Study Claiming "Teen Mom" Reduced Teen Pregnancies

There never seems to be a moment where young parenthood isn’t in the spotlight. But it’s gotten a recent boost this week after the The New York Times reported on a recent study purporting that shows like MTV’s “16 and Pregnant” and “Teen Mom” have helped in the reduction of teen pregnancies. The study suggested as many as 20,000 teen pregnancies were prevented in 2010 because of young adults watching those shows.

Many outlets have been reporting on this study, but very few are including the thoughts or opinions from those they’re talking about. So, after the jump, here’s a roundtable discussion conducted over email with Gloria Malone and Natasha Vianna, who are both tireless advocates for teen moms and their families.
