It has been rumored for quite a while that Farrah Abraham and sidekick Simon Saran might be expanding their reality show résumés into the popular house flipping genre. Those rumors went into overdrive over the weekend after the couple posted a video and several photos at a property in San Francisco which Farrah hashtagged with “#houseflipping” as well as the networks “#hgtv #mtv #fyi #fbf.” She also used “#beingsimon,” which of course had people wondering if MTV wasn’t extending Simon the same courtesy they extended Amber Portwood’s fiance Matt Baier by offering him his own special.
We spoke with an insider who had no information about a Being Simon special in the works (yet), but who did confirm that Farrah and Simon are indeed filming a house flipping reality series! We are told that a cable network has already picked up the series, but we do not know which network or what the title of the show will be. (May we suggest Refurbished By Farrah? That ties in nicely with her Furnished By Farrah brand — although it does leave Simon’s name off the marquee…)
Here is a video in which you can see Farrah and Simon at a very challenging-looking property in San Francisco while a camera crew documents the process:
And another photo of Simon and Farrah with a couple of their house flipping fans:
I’m guessing Farrah’s hashtags might narrow the pool of potential networks to MTV, HGTV or FYI — but that is no guarantee. I think that of those three, FYI is the most likely. The network is still relatively new and willing to take some chances. Plus, this wouldn’t be the network’s first house flipping reality series starring former MTV reality stars, as they were the home for last year’s Nicole and Jionni’s Shore Flip, starring Jersey Shore‘s Snooki and her husband.
In other Farrahntrepreneurial news, it looks as though her Froco frozen yogurt empire may soon be expanding! She posted this next photo on Snapchat on Monday: it features Coba the Froco mascot and a map of the United States featuring eight highlighted locations along with the words “Coming Soon!”
Judging from the map, Froco will be adding seven new locations — two in Texas (possibly three, if that isn’t the flagship store being represented), two in California, one in Florida, one in Georgia, and one in Louisiana. It’s not clear if Farrah will be handling all the hiring and firing. 😉
Congratulations to Farrah on her ever-growing Abrahampire!
