Debra Danielsen: I Need to Get Sophia Away from Farrah Abraham!!
Her mother has expressed her concern for her 9-year-old granddaughter. She says that Sophia would be better off with her.
In the mean time, Farrah has released her own statement about the incident. And it is bonkers.
Debra Danielsen is horrified by Farrah’s arrest. It doesn’t sound like she’s surprised, or even especially worked up over her daughter.
As she tells RadarOnline, Debra fears for her granddaughter, 9-year-old Sophia.
“She needs to be with her family,” Danielsen insists through tears.
Farrah is her daughter, but she’s also an adult. Sophia is just 9 years old. Her mother’s arrest could be traumatic. Especially since Farrah remained in jail for a while.
And Danielsen says that she knows exactly what isn’t a healthy environment for a child.
Sophia, she says, needs to be somwhere that’s not “Not [around] strangers and volatility and her mother being arrested.”
For the record, Sophia was at the hotel, but was up in her room and was presumably asleep. Hours earlier, she had been hanging out with her mom by the pool.
Reports say that Sophia remained with her nanny during her mother’s time behind bars.
Debra Danielsen, who is clearly feeling very emotional about this situation, laments:
“It’s very disgusting,” she says.
It sounds like there’s so much more than just Farrah’s arrest that’s on her mind, and it all comes boiling to the surface.
The emotional grandmother says: “She needs to go to school…”
Farrah homeschools Sophia, which … is probably very interesting but perhaps not what is best for the innocent 9-year-old.
Keep in mind that requirements for homeschooling vary from state to state, but many of those requirements are inadequate and none require a healthy level of socialization.
Danielsen makes it clear that she’s worried about more than just Sophia’s education and socialization.
“She needs to not be dragged on a party all over the world,” she says.
Visiting places like Capri is cool, but arguably not as cool as being a well-adjusted child who knows how to interact with strangers, make friends, and function in society.
(Which we of course hope that, no matter the obstacles, Sophia will nonetheless manage to do)
Farrah Abraham was released from jail on Wednesday, and took to Instagram to share the news.
“Looking great in @prettylittlething,” she writes beside a paparazzi shot of her exit.
That’s right, folks; she begins her post with some of the least appropriate product placement that we have ever seen.
“No charges & no jail time,” she brags.
This is Farrah, so … the truth of that statement, if any, is unclear.
Farrah begins her rant, which takes on the usual word salad elements that remind us to be worried about what she may be teaching Sophia.
“I chose this life and I handle being targeted as a public figure & public punching bag,” she says.
So … she seems to be suggesting that she is being framed or harassed because she is famous-ish.
“ALL is Fair In Farrah’s world,” she says. “I will never believe the lies that people need to sell to make a dollar off me.”
Why would someone believe lies about themselves? Sorry, we know better than to try to make sense of Farrah’s words.
The rant continues.
“Happy it’s all recorded and documented,” Farrah says. “As I should never feel unsafe and be targeted at a hotel I’m staying at.”
She accuses the hotel itself of misconduct.
“The Beverly Hills hotel truly allowed misconduct by staff to a paying guest.” She then adds: “There’s no need for me or anyone else to be treated this way.”
Farrah is accused of having gotten into an argument with another guest, and then of having struck and pulled the ear of a security guard.
Farrah also has a bone to pick with the police.
“The Beverly Hills Police officers should stop having power trips and lying and selling stories to TMZ,” she writes. “While you let all of Beverly Hills be robbed, car break ins, stealing go on…”
We must have missed that story about the largest heist in history — entire neighborhoods of multimillionaires — stripped bare while the ingenious thieves used Farrah as a distraction.
“Focus on really protecting the public and doing good for Beverly Hills,” Farrah advises. “Instead of creating made up problems.”
Farrah is a real piece of work, but there’s no sign that Sophia was actually exposed to any of the hotel drama.
Still, it may have been a scary experience for Sophia. When mommy’s in jail, you can feel alone and powerless and afraid for the future.
But while Debra Danielsen may have been responding emotionally to Farrah’s arrest, she has a point.
Maybe Sophia deserves to have a real life beyond her mother’s globetrotting adventures.
That said … Danielsen might not be the answer. Remember, this is the woman who raised Farrah Abraham.
This is also the sort of mother who gives out tearful, backstabbing interviews while her daughter is in police custody.
Sophia deserves … so much better.
