Color Us Unsurprised

Well, get ready for some mega ultra super sad, because you know that "boyfriend" that Farrah Abraham had for a hot minute, Brian Dawe, that DJ that she dated back in the fall and the guy who was supposed to be on that "Couples Therapy" show with her? Yeah, according to Brian, that was all a sham. They were apparently never even dating, and after a couple of appearances and a weird staged photo shoot, Brian felt too guilty to keep it up. See, we knew he was too good for her!
Brian gave a recent interview, and in it, he revealed a whole, whole bunch of things. He says that Farrah herself asked him to be in a "pretend relationship" with her after they met at a nightclub while he was DJing and she was getting paid for being dumb and present. Her whole plan was to get on "Couples Therapy," and Brian had been on a VH1 show, "Master of the Mix," in the past. He said that "Farrah told me to lie to the network and tell them the relationship was real" so that they could get on the show and make lots of money. That sounds about right, doesn't it?
Here's specifically why he decided to back out of the show and the "relationship":
“I checked my bags and got into the airport security line. When I was in that line it really hit me what I was doing. I stepped out of the security line and made a life changing decision to stand up for what I believe in and turn down the check I would be receiving for my appearance on this show ... I got myself in this situation because I was only thinking about the profit I would be making from doing this show. That was wrong. In the back of my head I realized I could not participate in a TV show that would further exploit Farrah, and where I would have to lie to be involved ... My only purpose for coming out against it is to clear my name and to take a public stance against the culture of exploiting people through reality television and the media. Reality TV is about as far from reality you can get.”
Now isn't this a great guy right here? I mean, relatively speaking? It's pretty intense when someone is too good to even be your imaginary boyfriend. Maybe Farrah should consider that for a good long minute instead of coming up with more wacky ways to get reality television gigs.
