Teen Mom's Farrah Abraham on Catelynn, Daughter Sophia's Fashion Boutique and Moving to L.A.: 'I Made the Right Choice'
The single mom shares her daughter's recent milestones and the latest on her relationship with Simon Saran
Farrah Abraham is on the move!
The Teen Mom OG star is getting ready to start her life in Los Angeles. “[I’m moving] hopefully Monday,” Abraham, 24, told PEOPLE at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards on Saturday at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California. “I just passed the house on the way here because it’s by the studio so I’m like, I made the right choice.”
That choice also suits her 7-year-old daughter Sophia. “I really felt like for my personal life – to see my daughter happy at the beach and we can do so many other things while we’re here, so to be closer to the beach is a big deal for us right now.”
“What I’m most proud of is Sophia is really into fashion,” she continued. “She’s opening up her own Sophia Laurent boutique store in Austin, Texas. She’s mentioned in New York Fashion Week. She’s in children model magazines. I’m so proud of Sophia and that doesn’t even really impact her real life. She’s just been so successful on her own so that’s just awesome to me.”
Abraham also seems to be in a good place with her ex-boyfriend, Simon Saran, who was with her at the award show. But she makes it clear that they are just at the event as friends.
“I mean right now we are under Dr. Jenn’s orders. Dr. Jenn is our therapist. Really just take it one day at a time right now,” she said. “We are doing [therapy] on our own right now. You’ll probably see that on the upcoming season of Teen Mom OG.”
Speaking of the Teen Mom OG, does she have any well wishes for her costar Catelynn Lowell, who recently announced on Twitter that she had entered a treatment facility for mental health last month? “Yes, of course. And you know what? That is such a good thing to do,” Abraham said. “As we all know, mothers need to take time out for them and wherever they are it’s good to be healthy mentally, physically and soulfully so that’s good.”
