Historically, Farrah Abraham's behavior has often defied description, not to mention consistency, logic, truth and really any semblance of sense.
You can't take anything she says at face value, including what she's revealing this week about the dark past that made her who she is at present.
Then again, if these shocking revelations are true, that might actually explain a lot about her some of the decisions and comments she's made lately.
According to Farrah Abraham, in a new interview with In Touch, she endured beatings when she was a child and several brutal rapes as an adult.
“Violence has been a big part of my life,” she says, claiming now-divorced parents Debra Danielson and Michael Abraham “would beat me with a belt if I acted out.”
“I had cuts, bruise, welts, swelling and scars," she tells the celebrity gossip site. "The abuse tore me down and at times made me feel like not living.”
As a result, she turned to plastic surgery for a self-esteem boost, spending more then $30,000 on a nose job, chin implant, Botox and two boob jobs.
“Abuse made me feel that I’m never attractive enough,” she says. “I try to be so perfect.” There was also the whole foray into porn. Sorry, "sex tape."
Speaking of which, she says she continued to endure more pain after the staged "sex tape" video with porn star James Deen "leaked" last year.
In the PR blitz following its release, Abraham said she surrounded herself with “the wrong type of people” at porn conventions, strip joints, and clubs.
“I was drugged and raped more than once. It was a dark time,” she adds. “But I’m much more aware now, and I’m determined to break the pattern.”
“I still have a lot of issues,” Abraham admits, but with the help of Couples Therapy (even if she's on the show solo), she says she's getting better.
We can only hope.
