In the make-believe world of reality television, anything is possible ... So long as it's marketable.
Take Teen Mom starlet Farrah Abraham, the 21-year-old aspiring chef-turned-model-turned-author who snuck into America's collective heart with her charming smile and piercing gaze, who's looking to capitalize on fame by dipping her toes into the music industry.
According to inTouch, Abraham recently completed her debut record, and the album's first single, "Finally Getting Up From Rock Bottom," is a real banger.
Listen after the cut.

She's best know for hugging Joe Biden after allegedly sneaking past Secret Service and crashing a White House state dinner honoring Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Jo De La Rosa, Real Housewives of Orange County
Here's a video of a train wreck. It'll help put Jo De La Rosa's music into perspective.
