What does Farrah Abraham’s dad Michael do for a living?

Anyone who has watched an episode of Teen Mom knows that Farrah Abraham comes from a financially stable family. In addition to their beautiful home, Farrah’s parents Michael and Debra also own a second house nearby, which Farrah and Sophia lived in during Seasons 2 and 3. Then, during the Season 4 back-to-back premiere episodes, Farrah’s dad helped with her move to Florida and even offered to relocate to The Sunshine State to be close to Farrah and Sophia as they adjusted to their new surroundings.

If you’re like me, all of this had you asking yourself, “So what does Farrah Abraham’s dad Michael do for a living?” Thanks to the internet, that question was easy to answer.

Ha! He even included his Teen Mom experience! That must have been odd to talk about during his interview 🙂

As far as education, Michael Abraham graduated from Glendale Community College and Arizona State University. (Remember Michael, Debra, and Farrah returning to Arizona for what turned out to be quite the unpleasant family outing last season?)

So by all accounts, Michael Abraham is a single (he and Debra’s divorce has gone through,) very skilled professional living in one of the coolest cities in the country. All you single ladies out there need to be pitching some woo! (Although your role as mother-in-law may have its difficulties.)
