EXCLUSIVE: Farrah Abraham’s Shocking New Claim: “I’m a Rape Survivor”
Couple’s Therapy star Farrah Abraham opened up about her past on the show— but now she’s exposing even more, revealing her dark past of rape and abuse.
In the new issue of In Touch, Farrah, 22, exclusively reveals, “I was drugged and raped more than once. I allowed the type of people into my life,” she says, adding that after the release of her porn movie, she booked appearances at strip clubs and porn conventions that put her in unsafe situations. – InTouch Weekly
“It was a very dark time.”
Are people who surround themselves with the porn industry more susceptible to “rape culture”? In today’s day and age one of the biggest problem our culture faces is the separation of fantasy and reality. The focus of this invisible barrier usually sits with gun control. A statistic came across my desktop the other day: there has been one school shooting every 10 days since Newtown. EVERY 10 DAYS. That’s mind blowing. I’m not going to attempt to go into the psyche of the people who perpetrate these shootings, but a solid bet would be that they’re mentally unstable. They see something in a video game or on TV and then go out and do it. Back to porn. Go on any porn website, literally any one, and you’ll find some very disturbing categories, including rape. All it takes is one individual who has trouble separating fantasy and reality to watch a “rape” video. That same individual can go to a strip club or porn convention and try to reenact that same video he just watched. Now is the person being attacked to blame because she put herself in that type of environment? That’s where it gets dicey. Porn isn’t promoting rape, but it’s also not going out of its way to typecast against it, either. If these allegations are true, then obviously its tragic. But you can’t help but think in a different environment, this all could’ve been avoided.

With the 48 Film Competition upon us I give you our 2011 submission to the contest. Dodging Reality.
A business man escapes the confines of reality to challenge his arch nemesis through an office fantasy.
Yahoo- For Judge Joe Brown, he pretended to be a drunk gypsy clown who trashed a bathroom at a kid’s birthday party. On The Trisha Goddard Show, he played Eddie the Trucker, a discount lothario who ran up $70,000 in debts by bedding hookers and playing the lottery. For Unfaithful, a show produced by Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN, he was an international security expert who was cheating on his girlfriend — who was also cheating on him. And on The Sit-Down, a show in which ex-mafioso Michael Franzese mediates disputes over dinner, he played a mope whose best friend had seduced his girlfriend and crashed his car.
In just a few months, Tarr had become one of the most prolific television hoaxers in U.S. history, merrily running an insurgent’s war against an industry seemingly immune to shame. He was fueled by a hodgepodge of intellectual challenge, a dissident’s sense of humor and, yes, a quest for some measure of fame.
Ken Tarr, huh? Well, I almost respect you. Love the enthusiasm, love the idea, don’t love the commitment level. Hoaxed 8 shows in 5 different cities in 5 months and then stop? Where’s the momentum? Where’s the dedication? You could’ve been a star, you could;ve been something! Everyone knows the fame is in American Idol and Survivor. You should’ve pretended to be a ten year old girl belting out House of the Rising Sun, or even a gay man from Rhode Island who wins the first ever Survivor! I don’t know why you stopped, but it would’ve been epic if you compiled all of these hoaxes into one film and released it’s wrath upon modern day reality T.V. burying it once and for all for the good of mankind and all that is humane…instead you stop short for your fifteen minutes of fame and then proceeded to admit it was for fame. Rook move. You were killing it, master of his craft, top of the reality T.V. hoax world and then you left the game too soon. Shame
P.S. I’m no super model but why are you flashing your belly chub in my face. It looks like your expecting something of me and, sorry, I’m just not willing to do it.
