After a controversial career that began on MTV’s hit show 16 and Pregnant and its spinoff, Teen Mom, Abraham will reportedly head to the UK to star on the upcoming season of Celebrity Big Brother.
According to the Daily Mail, Abraham, who has starred in a pair of porn movies, was signed onto the show in order to up its sex appeal.
“Bosses want the show to be more X-rated,” a source reportedly told The Sun. “She’ll add real sex appeal.”
Abraham is no stranger to drawing controversy for her propensity to wear skimpy outfits to red carpet events. She’s the single mom of 5-year-old Sophia, who she raises alone after Sophia’s father was killed in a car accident before she was born. Many critics have taken aim at Abraham’s ability to be a mom after she left Teen Mom, got plastic surgery to enhance her breasts and starred in a pair of pornographic films alongside famous porn star James Deen, including Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom.
Some of Abraham’s former Teen Mom co-stars, Amber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell and Maci Bookout, called her parenting into question when MTV was considering reviving the show. They said Abraham is a bad role model.
“I’m a real role model,” Lowell tweeted about Abraham during a public feud last year. “How is porn gonna make girls do good?”
