"I never got an apology, not even when it was mentioned in the press," Abraham exclusively confirms to OK!. "Courtney luckily got a message of apology and then was blocked."
Referring to friend Courtney Stodden, the former Teen Mom star found herself at the center of the recent bullying scandal surrounding Teigen, whose past hateful tweets have come back to bite her. John Legend's wife lashed out at a number of starlets over the years including Abraham, Lindsay Lohan and Stodden, who — while a teenager at the time — was allegedly told to go kill themselves. (Teigen issued a public apology last month to Stodden, but the non-binary model has maintained that Teigen did not personally connect with them; meanwhile, Teigen's career seems to be suffering from the scandal.)
Abraham found herself on the receiving end of a particularly mean tweet back in 2013 where Teigen mockingly wrote on Twitter, "farrah abraham now thinks she is pregnant from her sex tape. in other news you're a w***e and everyone hates you whoops not other news sorry."
"I remember when she said those comments, she was really desperate to be famous and really trying to marry her now husband," Abraham recalls.
"I also noticed when she had to take a break for her mental health, then you see her coming back hating in a worse way," she says, referring to Teigen's brief hiatus from Twitter earlier this year.
"It’s kind of like you’re victimized by her," she explains. "She doesn't stop, and she doesn't really apologize, and she silences her victims. I despise people who treat people like prey. We’re not prey, we don’t need to be hunted. I’m a real person, who works really hard, who has real talent, who is essential.
"I would hope that she doesn't treat her kids like that," she adds. (Teigen shares daughter Luna, 5, and son Miles, 3, with Legend — and she was extremely open with her fans and followers about her September 2020 miscarriage.)
The Couples Therapy star wishes that the mom-of-two would have had some compassion for what she was going through at that point in her life instead of mocking her on social media.
"I think at the time I was going to sex therapy and I was also grieving someone I loved," Abraham tells OK!. "I'm not the only person who after losing somebody isn't in the right mind. Also, I wasn't dating the best of men, and I had to go to trauma therapy with my parents."
The 30-year-old can't help but wonder if the source of Teigen's hate is simply a projection from another source of pain.
"I don't know what kind of husband she has, because damn!" she says. "I would hope her husband's not abusive, I hope that his smile and calmness on his shows isn't just for show, but when I see how ugly Chrissy acts in public and has no fear, that’s never going to repair."
And just because she's still waiting on an apology from Teigen, it doesn't mean she's expecting one nor needs one.
Abraham asserts that she doesn't have "any more energy or time to give to somebody" who she believes is "mentally ill." She adds, "I really hope she gets the mental health help she needs, just like I do. If your mental state is at the best, you will do the best, even when you get knocked down like I am."
Teigen isn't the only famous hater Abraham has had to deal with over the years.
"It's the worst to be objectified. Like Kim Kardashian saying Teem Moms can't be role models. Or Nicki Minaj, her disgusting, vulgar words about myself and my mother. I don't even know how she is a mother. And Wendy Williams, if she's not one to [objectify] and silence women — she really likes to shame younger women.
"I think I've been hurt so many times by women," she admits. "They should be empowering other women and protecting them, like I speak up all the time."
Breaking the cycle, Abraham is determined to be a champion for other women. She has a new self-help book memoir, Dream Twenties, giving readers guidance on how to achieve their goals and putting forth the lessons she's learned throughout her life.
"It will prompt people to be motivated, be inspired and reflect in their own way for their lives," she says of the book. "I also have good reminders of affirmations, like keeping your mind positive."
And this isn't Abraham's first turn as an author. She has published several other books in the past, including her 2012 autobiography, My Teenage Dream Ended, which went to No. 11 on the New York Times' Best Seller List, and she anticipates successful sales once again.
As a way to connect with fans, Abraham is scheduled to headline a "Books and Botox" tour, during which she'll host meet-and-greet book signings and treat fans to Botox specials at her favorite injectors' offices, Flawless Aesthetics by Melanie Speed in Beverly Hills, on Saturday, June 19, and Beauty Lounge Medical Spa in San Marcos, on Monday, June 21.
"It's all about standing up for yourself and using your resources within yourself that you always have," she concludes.
