In a recent interview, zero-time mom-of-the-year Debra Danielsen claimed that Farrah Abraham is suffering from multiple mental illnesses.
While mental illness doesn’t deserve its stigma, offering an armchair diagnosis of your famous daughter is … inexcusable.
Farrah is now responding by firing back at her mother.
As you may recall, Debra shared her “compassionate” words about Farrah in an interview.
“If you have Borderline Personality Disorder, if you have narcissism, any of these kinds of things, they’re all highly treatable.”
Whether or not you imagine that someone is having symptoms of something, it’s irresponsible to assign them a diagnosis. Um, especially in an interview.
“All is not lost, but I will say that deep down inside I know my daughter. She is kind, loving and she is sweet and very compassionate.”
Despite her upbringing, we guess.
“I think she works extremely hard, I think she just needs to step back a moment, and take some time and get healthy and take time for her so she can heal.”
Farrah tells People that it is “sad to hear my own mother would say these untrue things about her own child.”
We should keep in mind that Farrah has claimed that Debra has Asperger’s … which is also not an okay thing to guess in an interview, and seems better designed to malign the autistic community than anything else.
But Farrah goes in on her mother’s words.
“It’s evil and alarming. After all these years, I still have her best interests at heart.”
Evil is a very strong word, but honestly … people don’t use it enough. Not for the right things, anyway.
Farrah is perhaps not the best judge of what is and is not reasonable, but she’s right about this being a crappy stunt to pull on her mother’s part.
Farrah goes on to reveal how she views her mental health.
“Clinically & honestly, none of my TV show therapists & personal therapist have all said I’m balanced.”
That’s … an interestingly worded statement, but we think that she means to say that her therapists all say that she’s fine.
We’re not saying that they really said that, we’re just saying that this is what Farrah meant to say. Obviously, we don’t know what her therapists have told her, only how she’s apparently interpreted it.
“I started therapy in my past at the age of 14 due to my mother and I not getting along as our family therapist sided with me about my safety and my life choices that my mother has never been supportive or caring to help guide her own children.”
In the past, Farrah has accused her mother of terrible abuse. Which might explain some of Farrah’s … quirks … but not excuse things like Farrah’s race-fueled rants.
Farrah then shares that her therapists “have come to the conclusion my mother is jealous” of Farrah.
“I always wish my mother the best as I attended her wedding supporting her.”
As Farrah continues to talk about her mother, her sentence structure takes on exciting new forms.
“Saying horrible things about your own child after I’m the only one who has ever strived to overlook her demons she fights daily against.”
You know, Farrah’s said that she’s going into scripted television now that she was fired from Teen Mom OG. “Farrah Abraham: Demon-Slayer” sounds like an amazing trainwreck that I would watch every week. Just saying.
“This brings sadness to our family and I wish her all the best for the sake of my health & safety I wish her all the best.”
So … she wishes her mother the best … for the sake of her own health. Not very selfless, but that probably is healthy if Farrah means it.
That said, Farrah says that she and her daughter are getting the hell out of Dodge.
“I hope she has enjoyed the Teen Mom MTV ride that Sophia brought to her life as I’m moving on from that toxic environment she dwells in.”
In other words, Farrah plans to cut off Debra from her granddaughter after this.
“I hope she ceases talking about me since she does not love me she does not need to speak about me to stay relevant in a disgustingly hateful way. God Bless.”
Don’t worry, Debra … at least you’ll always have your bond with Amber Portwood, right?
