For the past week, rumors that Farrah Abraham is pregnant have been circulating non-stop on social media.
Part of the reason that the unconfirmed reports refuse to go away is that Farrah's number one coattail-rider, Simon Saran, insists on dropping hints that he and Farrah are expecting a child.
So far, he's favored relatively subtle methods, such as posting photos in which it looks like Farrah might be sporting a baby bump, but today he decided to kick it up several notches:
Asked by Radar Online if Farrah is knocked up, Simon responded, “Yes, she’s 26 and pregnant."
Now, before you get too excited/devastated about the prospect of Abraham welcoming a second child, you should know that Simon has a unique sense of humor.
And by "unique," we mean bad, unfunny, and just generally very lame.
Radar notes that Saran's comment was "perhaps joking" when he made the remark.
You might be asking yourself, how is it possible for such a straightforward statement to be a joke?
That's a good and difficult question that we feel qualified to answer, having endured the arduous task of scrolling through Simon's Twitter page.
You see, Saran thinks any word play-ish reference to the titles of Farrah's reality shows is absolutely fall-down HIGH-larious.
So when he says she's "26 and pregnant," that's not necessarily his way of confirming that she's actually pregnant.
You have to imagine Simon nudging you in the ribs and saying, "Ya know? Like 16 and Pregnant!"
It's best to politely chuckle and hope that he'll go away.
The statement contradicts Simon's earlier remarks on the subject, in which he blamed Farrah's "baby bump photos" on ... Dr. Pepper?
Yeah, we don't get it either.
“She’s not pregnant. I believe she had too much Dr. Pepper to drink for breakfast that left her looking bloated," he told Radar last week.
Erm ... is Dr. Pepper for breakfast, like, a pop-culture reference that went over our heads, or something?
More likely, Simon is just batting .1000 with the nonsensical jokes lately and enjoying every second of the attention that comes with his ex-girlfriend possibly being pregnant.
Naver change, homey.
Just kidding, change immediately; your whole thing just isn't working for us.
