During last night’s (Aug. 22, 2016) season six premiere of Teen Mom OG, Farrah Abraham revealed she’d recently purchased her own 14-carat engagement ring, but that’s just the beginning of the story.
In the episode, Abraham confesses to her mother Debra Danielson, she purchased the ring because her on/off boyfriend Simon Saran encouraged her too and promised to pay her back.
“He said to get it and was excited about it. I thought he was going to propose and nothing has ever happened,” she told her mother while showing her a picture of the massive sparkler. “I have this ring and Simon still hasn’t paid me back for it. I’m just really upset he did that.”
Later in the episode, Abraham invited her friend Jenna over to her hotel while she was visiting in LA, and relayed the same story to her gal pal. “I bought an engagement ring and it’s at my house,” she confessed. “I pretty much hid because I was like, ‘I don’t know what to do with this.’ And then he never pays me back for it or proposes and it’s like someone teasing me.”
Unlike Danielson, who seemed mortified that her daughter would buy her own engagement ring, Jenna was more concerned about her relationship with Saran, suggesting he hasn’t proposed because he just isn’t the one. “I’m not getting what I want and it’s really annoying,” Abraham admitted about her relationship. “So, we’ll see.”
Unfortunately, things didn’t get much better for the couple when Abraham finally asked Saran why she hasn’t met his parents, and he couldn’t muster up anything better than their “busy schedules.”
Eventually, Abraham circled back to the 14-carat sparkler sitting in her house, telling Saran, “I did pick one out. Then you said, ‘Oh. no. I didn’t want to pay you back for that one. I didn’t want to give that to you.’ I had it custom made. I still have it … it’s gorgeous.” To which Saran replied, “That’s nice.”
