Farrah Abraham's Teen Mom spinoff is apparently a go.
The 20-year-old reality TV star and aspiring model told Us Weekly she's in the process of finalizing a deal to star in her own new MTV reality series.
"I'm just closing on it," Abraham toldUs. "It's gonna be just about me and my life."
Abraham's Models International agency in Beverly Hills had first announced she was in talks with MTV for the Teen Mom spinoff back in March, saying the project would follow her as she moves to Los Angeles and takes the next step in her modeling career. Abraham, a single mom from Council Bluffs, IA, had signed with the modeling agency in February.
MTV's fourth season of Teen Mom -- which also starred Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell and Amber Portwood -- was the show's last edition, and its finale aired on August 28.
Teen Mom's first season premiered on the network in December 2009 after Abraham, Bookout, Lowell, and Portwood had their unexpected pregnancies chronicled on the first season of the network's 16 & Pregnant reality series.
Teen Mom quickly became one of MTV's biggest hits, resulting in the network debuting its second edition in July 2010 and premiering Teen Mom 2around the same time the following year.
