Everyone needs a guilty pleasure in life; whether that's chocolate or any show on the E! Network is a personal choice. However, most tend to pick a fun TV show when we need an hour to chill out or have an evening to ourselves. Reality shows are popular guilty pleasures because they are so enjoyable to watch and not be apart of. We can't believe the dramatic things that are on screen and love to see what people are tweeting or saying about while watching the same show. One could say there's a community when it comes to reality TV.
Often, the women on these shows live fancy, fabulous lives and we can't relate to them on that level. That's why we can't look away. Sometimes, though, we watch a reality show and find few relatable people. If there are moms who come across a reality TV star who is also a mom, then they may be more willing to watch because they have motherhood in common.
Two famous reality star moms are Darcey Silva from 90 Day Fiance and Farrah Abraham from Teen Mom. Whether we've watched both of these shows or are only a fan of one, we're most likely pretty familiar with these two women.
As it turns out, these two stars have a lot in common with each other, as well... like, a lot. Read on to find out 20 things that Darcey from 90 Day Fiance has in common with Farrah Abraham from Teen Mom.
20 Fame Game
First of all, Darcey and Farrah have this big thing in common: they both became famous because they appeared on a reality show.
Darcey was on 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, which is one of two spin-off series that was created after the original 90 Day Fiance.
Season one aired in 2017 and season two aired later this year. Farrah was originally on the MTV show 16 & Pregnant and was one of the four girls who appeared on the spin-off Teen Mom from 2009 until 2018. News broke in the spring of 2018 that she won't be returning to the show.
19 Drama Time
Do we watch reality shows because they are peaceful and lovely? No, not really. We watch this genre of television because we want to see drama! We need a break from our own hectic lives and would rather focus on someone else's.
Something else that Farrah and Darcey have common is that they've both been involved in dramatic situations.
According to People magazine, Darcey's fiance Jesse was going to call the police at the beginning of September 2018 because she threw shoes at him. Fans of Farrah might also remember that back in 2010, Farrah and her mom Debra were involved in a domestic dispute. According to TMZ, Debra was accused of choking her daughter.
18 Love Hurts
Sometimes love is painful, which is one reason why it's so exciting to find the person that you're going to marry. If you're married with a happy family, you know that you feel lucky every day. You've found that one person you love waking up to every day. On the other hand, if you're involved in a truly complicated and dramatic relationship, it can be another story...
*Cue Farrah and Darcey*
This is something else that Darcey and Farrah have in common: complex relationships. Darcey has had a dramatic relationship with Jesse and Farrah's relationship with her (now ex) boyfriend Simon was chronicled in many episodes of Teen Mom.
17 Dropping The Pregnancy Pounds
It seems like every time we open up a magazine or go online, we see photos of celebrities looking different (and sometimes very thin). We also see tons of headlines saying that a certain star has lost too much weight (is anyone ever happy?). Both Darcey and Farrah have been the subject of news articles saying that they have lost weight too much or too little weight.
Farrah, in particular, talks about weight loss products on her social media accounts, and people don't seem to like that. According to The Inquisitr, she promotes lollipops that are said to help you drop pounds because they stop you from feeling hungry.
16 Business Babes
We always love seeing a strong businesswoman. It's so inspiring to see women going after whay want and achieving something based on the dreams and goals that they have. Likewise, Farrah and Darcey both run their own businesses, which is really inspiring.
Farrah is an author (her book My Teenage Dream Ended came out in 2012) and she also has several stores, including a home decor store (Furnished by Farrah) and a frozen yogurt store (the latter of which closed down this year).
According to In Touch Weekly, Darcey is a fashion designer. She and her twin sister, Stacey, have their own design business called House of Eleven.
15 Family Feud
Any fan of Teen Mom knows that Farrah and her mother, Debra, have had a really tough relationship. In any given episode, they are either fighting, not speaking to one another, or getting caught up in lots of drama. Farrah and Darcey have this in common, too: having some tough times with their family members.
In Darcey's case, she and her twin sister, Stacey, have been known to have some pretty big arguments. According to Blasting News, Stacey and Darcey had a fight in February 2018 and while Stacey says that Darcey hurt her, Darcey says that she didn't.
I guess drama between sisters never ends?
14 No Wedding Bells In Sight
Both Darcey and Farrah wanted to get married... but neither one is currently married. As Newsweek reported recently, people aren't sure if Darcey and Jesse are still a thing. At the very least, they don't appear to be husband and wife yet, so we'll have to see what happens (and if they're on another season of the show).
In Farrah's case, fans of Teen Mom know that she wanted things to work out with her ex-boyfriend, Simon, and she even bought herself an engagement ring. (And, as fans also know, she wanted him to give her the money for it but said that he didn't have it... More and more drama, right?!)
13 Moms To Little Girls
Both Farrah and Darcey are mothers, and they have something else in common: they are both girl moms.
Farrah has her daughter, Sophia, whom she gave birth to back in high school. Her pregnancy and early days with Sophia were profiled on 16 & Pregnant, so fans are very used to seeing this adorable little girl from Farrah's time on Teen Mom. She is sweet and fashionable and they seem to have a lot of fun together. Farrah is outspoken, but does seem to be a great mom on the show.
According to In Touch Weekly, Darcey has two daughters, herself: Aspen and Aniko.
12 Singing Dreams
Many celebrities are double or triple threats: they act, sing, and dance. It's pretty normal at this point to learn that a reality star is doing something else, like coming out with an album or clothing line. Darcey and Farrah have both been singers and released their own songs. Farrah released an album called "My Teenage Dream Ended" that had 10 songs. It was the same title of her book for a reason: because these two things were released together. (Classic, Farrah).
In Darcey's case, she kept it all in the family when she came out with a song. She and her twin sister, Stacey, recorded a song together. As Starcasm reported, the song's called "Lock Your Number."
11 Looking Different As The Show Goes On
We're used to seeing celebs have huge makeovers or try out different hairstyles or beauty products. Sometimes our favorite stars look so different whenever we see them, based on their clothing choices and whether they're dressed down and running errands or heading to a more elegant event.
In Touch Weekly has noted that Darcey seems to have gone through a "transformation" as of late.
Darcey and Farrah both look totally different depending on the photos that we see. They seem to sometimes have darker brown hair that is almost black and other times, their hair is light brown with some blonde-ish highlights. And that's just their hair. We've all seen Farrah document her lip fillers and breast implants.
10 A Tale Of Two Arrests
Darcey and Farrah have both been arrested and have made news headlines for the various situations that they were a part of. When Darcey had an argument with her twin, it seems that she was arrested, according to Reality Blurb.
When Farrah was in Beverly Hills this past summer, she had an altercation herslef and was arrested. As People magazine reported, this happened in June and "A rep for the L.A. District Attorney confirmed to PEOPLE on Monday that the Teen Mom OG alum has been charged with one misdemeanor count each of battery and resisting, delaying or obstructing a peace officer."
9 Scalpel Speculation
It can sometimes feel like everyone in Hollywood has gotten plastic surgery. It's honestly impossible to tell who has or hasn't. If we go by the many gossip magazines that are sold in supermarkets and bookstores, we would believe that everyone has gotten at least one thing done. But we don't always know what to believe and what is actually true.
Both Darcey and Farrah have been the subject of several news articles saying that they have gotten plastic surgery. According to In Touch Weekly, Darcey hasn't said that she has had plastic surgery but people wonder because she doesn't exactly look the same in more recent photos.
8 Pretty Confusing
Something else that these two have in common is seeming to have very complicated and confusing relationships. Fans aren't really sure if these couples are together or not. Farrah and Simon definitely seem to have broken up, but there was a time when they seemed on and off-again, and fans aren't sure about Jesse and Darcey's status anymore.
We all know what it's like to be in a complicated relationship. You don't always know where you stand, you're always wondering what's going on and what the future holds — it's kind of dramatic. Of course, you didn't have those love stories filmed for audiences to watch, so it was a little bit different...
7 Family Matters
Single moms know that it's really tough to date because you know that at some point, once you are serious enough about someone, they have to meet your children. It's nerve-racking! You want to make sure that all goes well and that everyone meshes.
Both Darcey and Farrah have gone through this: they had their partners meet their daughters and they had to figure out the right time to have that happen.
Fans of Teen Mom often saw Simon around Sophia and interacting with her (and sometimes Sophia would even ask if they were going to get married... kids say the dardnest things...).
6 Height Story
When you're famous, people want to find out all kinds of stuff about you. The same thing is true if you're on a reality show. People might be interested in learning even more about you because you share so much about yourself and your life.
As The Hollywood Gossip says, Darcey and Jesse aren't the same height. He is much taller than her. The same thing is true of Farrah and Simon (when they were together).
Darcey and Farrah really do have so many things in common, even something like this. It might be a small detail but it's still kind of comical. Should these two meet up for a photo op?!
5 Possible Matchmakers
Have you ever seen the show Millionaire Matchmaker on Bravo? It's pretty fun to watch singles try to find their one true love, especially if you have gone on some bad dates and can relate to it (okay, so in other words, we can all relate to it because we've all gone on bad dates).
Farrah was on this reality show for one episode and it turns out that people think that it's possible that Darcey was as well. According to In Touch Weekly, no one knows if this is actually the case or not because she wasn't called by the name Darcey Silva... It very well could have been her sister Stacey, but that quick scene looked a lot like Darcey.
4 Wait... There's More Matchmaking!
According to Starcasm, Farrah and Darcey were actually on the same episode of Millionaire Matchmaker (that is, if it really was Darcey, of course). If that is true, that would make this a really small world! It's truly amazing how similar they are when you look at their lives and backgrounds.
Hmmm. The plot thickens, right?! Or, well, not the plot, since a reality show doesn't have a plot since it's not a fictional show... At the very least, this is an interesting fact and it seems like we'll just have to live with the mystery.
3 Reality Stars
Darcey and Farrah have been on various reality shows. Yes, they have been on the shows that made them famous, 90 Day Fiance and Teen Mom, but they were on some others as well.
People love to dig deep into a star's past and find out things about them, and that is definitely true of Darcey Silva and her fans. According to this post on Reddit, Darcey was also on a TV series called The Twin Life which people say was her very first show. Likewise, Farrah and her parents appeared on a reality show called Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition.
2 Trouble In Paradise
Both Farrah and Darcey have had ex-boyfriends talk about them to the press and say some not so nice things. In Farrah's case, according to The Hollywood Gossip, Simon learned that she has a new boyfriend and said, “Good for her. She needs an older man in her life. Plus she needs the financial support from him. Guys like that are more willing to give [that].”
As for Darcey and Jesse, according to Monsters and Critics, he said, “In my relationship, Darcey doesn’t per se have bad intentions, but getting to know her more, you get to see that a lot of it is fake."
1 Strong Females
There is something else that these two reality stars have in common and it's the coolest thing of all: they are both really strong and often stand up for themselves. They are okay with talking about their relationships and why they're fed up or why they deserve better.
We all need people like this because the more that we hear that we deserve to be treated well, the more that we'll believe it ourselves and live our own lives according to that motto. Let's all be super strong (and watch more reality TV... because that's always a really great idea).
