Ex-Teen Mom Farrah Abraham has reportedly patched things up with her mother, Debra Danielson.

The two had been estranged since news broke of the existence of a sex tape featuring the reality TV star’s sex and porn star James Deen. Tuns out, the sex tape was actually a professionally produced skin flick purchased by porn king Steve Hirsch for nearly $1 million.

“We went after this movie as vigorously as any sex tape we’ve ever pursued,” Hirsch told the Los Angeles Times on Monday. “We felt it was definitely worth it, not only because of Farrah’s popularity, but because the footage itself is amazing.”

Farrah’s looks remind me of a young Kim Kardashian,” he added, “and we all know how her story turned out.”

Abraham denied that the tape was in fact porn, until Deen spilled the beans in early April. “I told them that I am not a prostitute and I’m not going to go on fake dates with people for the tabloids,” he told Today.com “If you’re going to make a celebrity sex tape and try to pass it off as an amateur home video, you don’t hire a well-known porn star!”

Though Danielson reportedly slammed Deen for “exploiting” her daughter, she apparently kicked Abraham out of the house.

Pop diva Mariah Carey said she hired increased security following what she described as threats reportedly made against her by fellow ‘American Idol’ judge Nicki Minaj, according to an interview on ABC News.

Carey, 42, one of three new judges to join the “American Idol” panel for the hit talent show’s new season on Jan. 16, told Barbara Walters in an interview airing on Monday, “it felt like an unsafe work environment.”

“Anytime anybody’s reeling threats at somebody, you know, it’s not appropriate,” Carey said.

“I’m a professional. I’m not used to that type of environment,” she said, adding that she hired extra security.

The diva was alluding to widely reported tension between her and Minaj, who were seen arguing with one another in a video from the show’s audition phase.

Walters has reported that, according to Carey, others on the “Idol” set heard Minaj go further and say, off-camera, “If I had a gun, I would shoot that bitch.”
