Farrah Abraham has successfully transitioned from reality star to porn star — and in a big way. Her just-released sex tape has broken records and crashed web sites but she says that wasn’t her initial plan. In fact, Farrah is now claiming that she only sold her sex tape out of fear that someone would leak it.
She spoke with Entertainment Tonight on May 8 to answer the questions that are on everyone’s mind.
Right off the break, host Brooke Anderson asks Farrah point blank why she made a sex tape. “I have no relationships and I’m, like, sad sometimes,” the former Teen Mom star explained. “So, taking all this into consideration, which some find it hard to, that’s what brought me here today. I thought this was my way of embracing my sexuality and being happy for me.”
But the tape didn’t stay private and according to Farrah, that was because of her co-star James Deen. “I was under the belief [that filming with James] would help better protect me and my privacy. I was like, ‘If this guy is so professional, and everything is going to be fine, then I was like, I’m happier with this choice.'”
As news spread of her and James sex romp, Farrah became more and more concerned that the tape would eventually be leaked. “He kind of made it, like, his own thing. So that’s why I was like, ‘Let me be one step ahead and gain control of my own video again.’ So that’s why I was like meeting with different adult entertainment companies.”
But how would James have leaked the tape? Did he too receive a copy of the film? It seems unlikely considering that Farrah so desperately wanted to keep thing private. But if not James, who would have had the ability to leak the flick?
As for how much she made off the film, Farrah played coy. “I don’t want to talk about things financially — I’m pretty private like that — but I did make more than people hear. So, some information is wrong.” That’s odd, considering she recently bragged to press that she was “very happy with my seven-figure deal.”
Despite her contradictions, Farrah does seem to have a great plan for where she will go from here. “My plan for the future, number one, is opening up my restaurants. From there it’s just creating a great environment for my daughter. So, a home, a nice neighborhood. Her college is already paid for and those things I’ve taken care of.” Some other things she failed to mention, for some reason, including creating her own pole dancing DVD and endorsing a weight loss product.
