Olivia doesn’t just have to answer to The Bachelor ladies! When new villain Olivia Caridi compared her competitor Amanda Stanton’s custody problems to “an episode of Teen Mom” on the Monday, February 1, episode of ABC’s smash competition, things got awkward. And naturally, Teen Mom OG star Farrah Abraham couldn’t let the comment slide.
“Now you can see why it's offensive of others to judge someone's parenting drama no matter what age,” Abraham, 24, tells Us Weekly exclusively. “The women on The Bachelor got a dose of the Teen Mom bad stigma.”
Abraham is the mother of 6-year-old Sophia with her late ex-boyfriend, Derek Underwood. And though Abraham is offended by Caridi’s words, she doesn’t think Miss “Dragon Breath” is completely off base.
“If you are dealing with Teen Mom–like issues with custody and such, maybe it's best to not go on a show looking for a new man like on The Bachelor,” Abraham adds. “Olivia Caridi had a point.”
Stanton opened up in this week’s episode about coparenting with her ex, talking with some of the girls on the show about dropping off her children at their dad’s house.
“I feel like it’s an episode of Teen Mom that I watch … freaks me out,” Caridi replied, while the other girls looks horrified.
After getting her start on 16 and Pregnant in 2009, Abraham has gone on to make a name for herself, appearing on several reality series and launching her own products.
“I am older then most of these women on Bachelor, with my life together and organized,” she continues. “Maybe as women we can all agree — no matter how old, how many difficulties life throws at us, as parents or not — to support one another and hope for the best. Good luck, ladies! And may the best woman win Ben's heart!”
Abraham went on to tease that her costar Amber Portwood could meet up with Bachelor Ben Higgins, when he’s back in their mutual home state of Indiana to “catch an episode of Teen Mom on MTV Monday nights!”
