Farrah Abrahamis threatening to sue a company she claims told TMZ no one wants her DNA.
The woman who made backdoors more famous than ever fired off a letter to ZTPR, a public relations firm that reps a company that worked with Farrah to create necklaces with vials of her DNA.
Farrah cut a deal with the DNA company to sell the necklaces, and the lion's share of profits would go to a charity of her choice.
Now here's why she's threatening suit. TMZ got hold of a letter ZTPR sent to Farrah, informing her she was fired because she was more concerned with self-promotion than selling the necklaces. And the necklace thing was a big bust ... the letter says not a single person wanted Farrah's DNA.
So she sent ZTPR a letter -- which we also got -- accusing the company of leaking the termination letter to us and defaming her. Farrah's lawyer wrote, "My client has zero tolerance for defamation, as her reputation is her brand."
The lawyer says Farrah is "beyond perturbed" and wants $20,000 from ZTPR to make things right.

Under the deal, Steve-O has to turn himself in for a 30-day sentence in December with 3 years of probation. He also has to pay $7,409 in restitution fees and stay out of Hollywood temporarily. He can only perform pranks or stunts in the LA area during his probation ... if he has a permit.
However, Steve-O didn't seem too worried about the whole thing this morning at LAX.
Caitlyn Jenner's medications may have triggered her fatal car crash ... so claim the stepchildren of the woman killed in the accident.

As for what type of meds ... all we know is that Jenner was tested after the accident and authorities determined she was not impaired at the time of the crash.
According to the legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Caitlyn has already taken the deposition of a paparazzo who was at the scene of the PCH crash, to determine if the photog caused or contributed to the crash.
Nikki Mudarris is accusing her ex BF Mally Mall of not only leaking their sex tape ... but also hitting her, destroying her property, and threatening to blackmail her.
The "Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood" star says Mally is obsessed with her and told her he would "EXPOSE UR DIRTY P" if she didn't stop being a bitch. She says a week later, he leaked a sex tape they had made.
Mudarris makes the accusations in her request for a restraining order against Mally Mall. In the docs, she also says he's threatened to kill himself. As for violence against her ... Mudarris says Mally injured her nose back in February, and has destroyed her phones multiple times.
Nikki seems to fear Mally's exotic pets, because when asked about any weapons he might own -- she points out his collection of wild animals and snakes.
Mudarris says Mally's been hitting her up for money, and believes he's recorded other sexual encounters without her knowledge to blackmail her. In other words -- don't be shocked if another sex tape leaks.
A judge granted the restraining order ... which requires Mally Mall to stay 100 yards away and have no contact with Nikki.
Last night Mally sounded like he was just as done with Nikki as she is with him.
Randy Quaid can't seem to get things right north of the border ... he was just detained in Canada and it could lead to his deportation.
Law enforcement tells TMZ Quaid was picked up in Montreal where he and his wife Evi live. It appears Evi was involved in the incident as well, she tweeted, "i love that Canada needs to learn how to wake up and criticize its crappy government ... ps we got arrested by an actual tall midget."
It's unclear why Quaid was detained but an immigration official tells TMZ he will have a detention review hearing on Thursday.
A law enforcement source in Santa Barbara -- where Quaid has several warrants out for his arrest -- tells TMZ they'll pick him up once he's brought back to the US.
The couple has been in Canada for years after legal troubles in the US, reportedly living in Montreal since January 2013.
Former "American Idol"contestant Corey Clark's arrest was the result of a conspiracy -- set in place by his estranged wife and her detective stepfather ... at least that's what Clark is claiming now.
Clark got busted September 23 in Yuma, AZ, and was eventually charged with misdemeanor domestic violence. But Tuesday in L.A. he told us the whole thing was a revenge plot.
Clark says he'd filed a report against Monica Clark just prior to his arrest, claiming she was violating their child custody agreement. Clark thinks it's no coincidence he was arrested right after that, especially because his wife's stepfather is a Yuma PD detective.
We've reached out to Yuma PD for a response ... so far, no word back.
"Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" star Dylan O'Brien is getting called to the principal's office -- after he bragged about stealing Native American artifacts from the movie's set, he'll have to answer to 20th Century Fox studio execs.
O'Brien spilled the beans about jacking the stuff a couple weeks ago on "Live with Kelly & Michael" -- and did it in a pretty insensitive way ... admitting they'd been warned to leave any native artifacts they might stumble upon during filming. He said they took stuff anyway, and joked they'd been cursed because several cast members got sick.
TMZ spoke with Roch Hart, who manages Diamond Tail Ranch in Albuquerque -- where the movie was shot -- and he was pissed about O'Brien's comments. He told us he wasn't sure what, if anything, O'Brien and his co-stars really did take -- but said, "If the artifacts are not returned, we will be contacting our attorney."
Hart said he called 20th Century Fox, the film's distributor, on Tuesday to see if it would offer any assistance, and a few hours later he was told Fox would reach out to the cast and crew. Hart says he's been told the studio will find out if anything was taken, and if so ... make it right.
Oakland Raiders superstar Aldon Smith is fighting the charges in his DUI case -- pleading not guilty to allegations he smashed his SUV door into another car and then drunkenly drove from the scene.
Aldon was arrested on August 6th -- after cops say he tried to get out of his car in a lot about a mile from Levi's Stadium when he swung the door open into the car next to him, causing roughly $500 in damage.
Cops say Smith got back in his car and left ... only to return to the scene on foot, where cops were waiting. Aldon then bombed a sobriety test and was arrested for DUI, hit and run and vandalism.
If convicted, Smith -- who has been arrested for DUI twice -- faces up to 2-and-a-half years behind bars.
Bill Cosby was just sued by the woman who has triggered an active criminal investigation against the comedian.
Chloe Goins -- who says she met Cosby at the Playboy Mansion in 2008 where she allegedly was given a date rape drug -- outlines in the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, the claims 40 other women have made and then says, "The nature of these activities establishes a history of a serial rapist that has been conducting these horrendous activities against women for over the last 40 years."
She says she woke up naked in a room with Cosby who was at the end of the bed biting one of her toes. Goins claims Cosby quickly left the room when he noticed she was awake.
The case is now under review by the LA District Attorney.
