Kim Kardashian has ruled the reality roost for some time now, with her and her family being known the world over for their lavish lifestyle and ability to brand themselves. Whether you love Kim Kardashian for her style, fame, and personality, or hate her for being rich and famous through luck and association rather than talent, there’s no denying that she’s a big deal. However, one young celeb thinks that Kardashian’s time has passed and that she is the new queen of reality stardom: Farrah Abraham, who has previously appeared on 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom. And in a move reminiscent of The Beatles calling themselves “bigger than Jesus,” Abraham has dropped the gauntlet on Kim Kardashian, saying that she is a bigger deal than Kim is! Just who is Farrah Abraham to be making this boisterous claim? Here’s everything you need to know.
Who Is Farrah Abraham?
Farrah Abraham first appeared on 16 & Pregnant as a cheerleader from Iowa who hoped to become a model and/or cook and who had learned she was expecting with a boy named Derek Underwood; sadly Underwood died in a car accident before the birth of his child. After rumors regarding her pregnancy spread, she dropped out of high school and went to community college for her education. Her daughter, Sophia Laurent Abraham, came into the world in February 2009. Abraham would go on to appear on the 16 & Pregnant spin-off, Teen Mom, where she was shown to have a strained relationship with her mother, who was charged with assault after an altercation became physical. She later returned for Teen Mom OG, where her presence wasn’t appreciated, being cited as a bad influence on the children.
Following her time on reality TV, Farrah Abraham has released a memoir, a music album, pasta sauce, a YouTube show, and two professionally produced sex tapes, originally claiming that the first was “leaked.” She was also the first person to appear alone on an episode of Couples Therapy, her “boyfriend” claiming he was paid to pretend to be in a relationship with her. She most recently appeared on Celebrity Big Brother and the Bit on the Side after-show, from which she was removed, released a line of sex toys, and was banned from using Uber after claiming a driver sexually assaulted her (if you think that sounds backwards, it’s because the driver filed a complaint and she didn’t).
Farrah Abraham Surpassing Kim Kardashian?
But despite her history of outlandish claims and heated arguments, her latest statement may be the craziest yet! In an interview on the Nik Richie Podcast, host Nik Richie compared Abraham to Kim Kardashian, saying that the two both make the news whenever they pretty much do anything. When asked if she puts herself “into that category,” Abraham responded, “I’ve been beating out Kim on a lot of things.” But then, when asked if she’s surpassed Kardashian, Farrah Abraham said this: “I think I’ve surpassed her in certain aspects. Then again, I conduct myself and my brand in a different way and my life in a very different journey,” adding, “I think I’m doing very well, if not better.”
A bold statement to be sure, but only time—and their subsequent net worth values—will tell if Farrah Abraham has or will truly reach Kim Kardashian’s level. Unfortunately for Farrah, she’s become more of a laughing stock than an international superstar.
