Farrah Abraham has back-door'd her way into the 7-figure range ... 'cause the former MTV star tells TMZ she's a bona fide millionaire.
The 22-year-old just called in to "TMZ Live" to discuss her crush on Charlie Sheen ... when we asked her straight up if her foray into the world of adult entertainment has turned her into a millionaire.
But Farrah's swollen bank account isn't just from the sex tape -- we broke the story, she scored in the high 6-figures when she sold her sex tape to Vivid Entertainment. But she's also locking down endorsement deals ... and collecting checks for public appearances.
Bottom line ... the Kim Kardashian Sex Tape Playbook sure as hell worked for Farrah.
Bob Tur -- a legendary news helicopter pilot who captured the Reginald Denny beating that triggered the L.A. Riots, the O.J. Simpson slow-speed chase and countless of other seminal news events -- is in the midst of a transgender procedure that will make him a woman.
Tur was on TMZ Live Wednesday ... and explained he always felt he was a woman trapped in a man's body. He's currently in the early stages of the procedure, has been receiving hormone injections and says he's already "thinking like a woman." When the procedure is done, he says Bob Tur will be "dead" and he will become Zoe.
Tur -- whose daughter Katy is a star reporter on "NBC Nightly News" -- did say something troubling. He says he doesn't believe women can make the same quick, decisive decisions like men when piloting an aircraft.
Now that's a scary proposition.
TMZ broke the story ... Glanville returned home from Palm Springs after her assistant informed her someone had broken into Glanville's home and made off with her chihuahua Chica ... but nothing else -- nothing.
Glanville said it seemed odd that the dog was the only thing taken, but told us, "I don't wanna blame my assistant. I don't know if she lost them and is making up the story and only found one … But I have to believe what she tells me because I don't know."
Glanville is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of the dog.
