Farrah Abraham lied to get on ‘Couples Therapy’

Farrah Abraham

If one were to diagram Farrah Abraham‘s famewhore career plan, it might look something like:

  1. Trick a teenager into barebacking me
  2. Have baby!
  3. Use baby to land MTV show, at which point ditch the baby on Mom and then scream at them both
  4. Make a porn disguised as a sex tape
  5. Burn that bridge immediately
  6. $$$!

So yeah, not the brightest star in the night sky. Anyway, continuing along on her path of massive money for minimal work, she managed to get herself on VH1’s Couples Therapy … alone. Which she did by stringing along a fake boyfriend, Brian Dawe, until he realized how morally vacuous the whole thing was and pulled out (did I just accidentally describe sex with Farrah? Yes, yes I did). The fake boyfriend’s story, via FishWrapper

Brian gave a recent interview, and in it, he revealed a whole, whole bunch of things. He says that Farrah herself asked him to be in a “pretend relationship” with her after they met at a nightclub while he was DJing and she was getting paid for being dumb and present. Her whole plan was to get on “Couples Therapy,” and Brian had been on a VH1 show, “Master of the Mix,” in the past. He said that “Farrah told me to lie to the network and tell them the relationship was real” so that they could get on the show and make lots of money. That sounds about right, doesn’t it?

Here’s specifically why he decided to back out of the show and the “relationship”:

“I checked my bags and got into the airport security line. When I was in that line it really hit me what I was doing. I stepped out of the security line and made a life changing decision to stand up for what I believe in and turn down the check I would be receiving for my appearance on this show … I got myself in this situation because I was only thinking about the profit I would be making from doing this show. That was wrong. In the back of my head I realized I could not participate in a TV show that would further exploit Farrah, and where I would have to lie to be involved … My only purpose for coming out against it is to clear my name and to take a public stance against the culture of exploiting people through reality television and the media. Reality TV is about as far from reality you can get.”

Well, good on him for refusing to be one of those people that fakes a relationship just to get on TV. As for Farrah … well, let’s be honest here. She already ruined her kid, tried to throw James Deen under the bus, and basically made a ton of money off the fact that America loves watching shameless people be terrible to one another. Faking basic human affection must be like a reflex to her at this point.
