In the fifth installment of her comedy series, Abraham revealed why she stepped away from the celebrity boxing match. She said she didn’t feel the boxing match was being run professionally. Before making that statement, she said she’s cautious about the people she spends time with:

I’m not driving and staying out late with people who could probably put me in a bad situation, stalk me, or set me up, or put me in jail again. It’s just not happening ever again. It actually saved me from a celebrity boxing match that was also very politically ran and hatefully ran, and [unjustly] ran, because it was for anti-bullying and they were all bullying, and hateful, and lying to the press, and trying to hurt me. And through that, I fired a lawyer, through that I got rid of all these shady people, and through that, I stopped doing low-class reality television shows… I won in my eyes. I’m intact, I didn’t get touched, I made more money. That’s a win-win, folks.

This is what she had to say about jealous people in the second installment of her comedy skit series:
