Ex-Teen Mom Farrah Abraham has reportedly patched things up with her mother, Debra Danielson.
The two had been estranged since news broke of the existence of a sex tape featuring the reality TV star’s sex and porn star James Deen. Tuns out, the sex tape was actually a professionally produced skin flick purchased by porn king Steve Hirsch for nearly $1 million.
“We went after this movie as vigorously as any sex tape we’ve ever pursued,” Hirsch told the Los Angeles Times on Monday. “We felt it was definitely worth it, not only because of Farrah’s popularity, but because the footage itself is amazing.”
Farrah’s looks remind me of a young Kim Kardashian,” he added, “and we all know how her story turned out.”
Abraham denied that the tape was in fact porn, until Deen spilled the beans in early April. “I told them that I am not a prostitute and I’m not going to go on fake dates with people for the tabloids,” he told Today.com “If you’re going to make a celebrity sex tape and try to pass it off as an amateur home video, you don’t hire a well-known porn star!”
Though Danielson reportedly slammed Deen for “exploiting” her daughter, she apparently kicked Abraham out of the house.
Abraham told TMZ at the time: “After meeting with my counselor today, I’ve packed up everything and I’m not talking to my mom anymore. My mother will never be a good mother to me and it is too hurtful to deal with let alone have my daughter Sophie around it.”
But it seems Danielson is now ready to forgive her daughter. “Farrah & Sophia, I miss you both so much!” she wrote in an April. 25 letter that Abraham tweeted out the next day. “Love you and pray God will bless and keep you safe. Want our family to heal and grow. I will NEVER leave you or forsake you. You are a priority in my life.”
