“I was game for it,” says the 21-year-old single mom.

When a planned reality show about Bristol Palin and her Dancing With the Stars friend Kyle Massey and his actor brother, Chris, fell apart, Lifetime offered the daughter of Sarah Palin her own series instead. “I was game for it,” says the 21-year-old single mom. “I wanted to show how down-to-earth my family and I are.”
The result: Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp, a 14-episode show premiering June 19 that follows Bristol and her 3½-year-old son, Tripp, from their hometown in Wasilla, Alaska, to Los Angeles, where Palin takes a job with a nonprofit.
“My parents were skeptical at first,” she admits. “But they know I’m responsible. I won’t be getting drunk on TV. This isn’t Jersey Shore. It’s a family show.” The most fun for her? “Watching my son grow up over the series – some of the stuff he says is hilarious!”

    The Palin freak circus just won’t go away……

    Frank Bruni: Bristol Palin’s ‘Righteous Leadership’ Makes Limbaugh Proud:

    Soon after President Obama stated support for same-sex marriage, Bristol publicly weighed in. Because, you know, the world was on tenterhooks.

    In a blog post she focused on the reference that Obama made to his daughters — and to the same-sex parents of some of the girls’ friends.

    “It would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends (sic) parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage,” wrote Bristol, making her heady debut as the new Dr. Spock for a nascent millennium. She added that “in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview.”

    Fathers like…Levi Johnston? It’s with him that she conceived her child — out of wedlock, at the age of 17 — and by most accounts, his relationship with her and the Palin family isn’t any warmer than Juneau in January. A mother/father home is not what he and Bristol have succeeded in creating.

    What’s more, she has made sure that their son, Tripp, will at some point be treated to a worldview-shaping image of Dad as something akin to a date rapist. That’s the description of him immortalized in her memoir, one of her many efforts to monetize her surname. It recounts the loss of her virginity as a result of getting drunk and blacking out in the company of Levi, who pounced. What a gift that narrative is to Tripp, now being hauled into a TV reality show, “Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp,” already in production. Little children are known to thrive in such environments.

    I hesitated before picking on Bristol because she’s an easy target. It’s like shooting moose from a helicopter flying low over the tundra.

    But she so perfectly distills the double standards and audacity of so many of our country’s self-appointed moralists and supposed traditionalists: hypocrites whose own histories, along with any sense of shame, tumble out the window as soon as there’s a microphone to be seized or check to be cashed.

    She proves that they’re not going away anytime soon — a new generation rises! — and that they haven’t been daunted by the ridicule justly heaped on Newt Gingrich during the Republican primaries, when he dared to cast himself as a religious conservative.

    Certainly Rush thunders on. Last week he bellowed that Obama had decided to “lead a war” on traditional marriage. Seems to me Limbaugh started those hostilities long ago, if not with his first divorce then certainly with his second and third.

      Yes, and Bristol is a shining example of having a mother/father family. Father is a pimp & sex trafficker & Mother is a psycho. The nutz in the Palin/Heath family don’t fall far from the tree.

    Oh, she’s “game” all right. Since when has any Palin rejected the notion of whoring themselves out to make a dime for minimal effort?

    Please.

      Next will be the perfume line, and a clothes line, a toddler clothes line, another book, and US, People, Intouch articles, interviews on Today, GMA, Extra about her new show. Now that Bristol has worn out being Levi’s victim, she can take on a new victimhood with someone else. See, this could go on for years. There are still tv ventures, etc for Willow and Piper. Now that I have made myself sick, I will stop.

        You’re so right, they want to have the perfume line etc….the problem is of course, who’s going to buy it, whatever it is? They’re hoping the next thing will make them popular so they can sell stuff to their “fans” but will they ever have enough fans?
        Palins have alienated so many with their bs & the registering of their entertainment names is not worth the paper it’s written on now.
        Palin was invited to speak at SALT by the owner because as he said, “I like stirring up dirt”! Palins aren’t popular their Infamous!

    I love the comment, “But they know I’m responsible. I won’t be getting drunk on TV.” Kind of leaves one with the feeling that getting drunk off screen is a recreational activity.

    Does Bristol have any friends there? She seems like she’d be too fake for Wasilla. In fact, all the Palins seem too fake for Wasilla. I get the feeling they like the “glitz and glamour” and would love to live among the stars in NY or CA but can’t move ’cause they have to keep up The “I am Joe Six Pack” in case Palin teases another Presidential run in 2016.

    Do they flaunt their millions in Wasilla?

      I meant to add that Wasilla seems like a nice place, salt of the Earth people–except for the fakester Palin family. I don’t have a problem with wealth either but I have a problem with wealth built off of lies which is how I feel Sarah made her money.

    So Bristol thinks that marriage was only between a man and a woman for thousands of years? It looks like this allegedly Christian girl has never read the Bible. Does she not realize that having multiple wives was allowed during different eras and within various cultures? Of course not, she only knows what her mother tells her, which isn’t based on reality, only what’s in her pathetic little mind.

    Bristol doesn’t want things to change yet if her situation of being pregnant and unmarried had happened 30 years ago or more, she would have been shunned by people in her community and her church. Good girls didn’t get pregnant outside of marriage or if they did, they quietly married their boyfriend and had a “premature” baby. Instead, Bristol has used her unwed motherhood to promote herself and her son, raking in all the money she can. I recall her claiming how she didn’t want Levi to have custody of Tripp at any time because she was worried that he might exploit their son by allowing him on a prospective reality show! Is there no end to the hypocrisy of the Palin family? No!

    Please write to Lifetime and let them know how you feel about her upcoming show. If it’s anywhere near as bad as her show with the Massey brothers, it won’t last for the ten episodes they supposedly filmed. I doubt Bristol grew a personality worthy of television in a year or so.

      “Bristol has used her unwed motherhood to promote herself and her son, raking in all the money she can. ”

      There’s a name for women who trade off their sexuality to get money. As has been said, Bristol hasn’t read the Bible, or she’d know this. Or maybe not. She’s not the brightest bulb in the pack.

    I feel so sad for Tripp. He has no positive, thoughtful, caring adults in his life, certainly not a mother who puts his needs above her own adolescent, ignorant self. What kind of parent would use her son for nothing more than garnering attention for herself? Bristol is uneducated and ineducable and education was not a priority in her life. Her values were/are skewed–thanks to her mother and father’s lack of involvement and concern for her well-being.

    Unfortunately, the cycle will be repeated with Tripp. Children learn from their parents–good or bad. Tripp has been dealt a very raw deal indeed.

      Seriously, I think this kid has a great life. Right now.
      Toys galore and adventures and a house full of people to pick him up. Aunties and uncles and nannies and babysitters. All kinds of attention, 24/7.
      Mommy doesn’t have all those little issues that plague us in the real world. If she gets a flat tire, she makes a phone call and someone will pick her up, fix the truck. She doesn’t have to find babysitters or worry about being late to work. Wonderful!

      But this won’t last forever. The problem is later. Not too far away. In another year, he’s going to have to be in school. Somewhere. Bristol can come and go to Hollywood, but this child will have to BE somewhere. How is he going to play hockey or go to sports camps or get music lessons?
      Boy, if you think the Time cover toddler is going to have a hard time with other children in the future, can you imagine how it’s going to go for this little guy? Anywhere.

      And he’s learning to _read_.

      What, are they going to keep him out of school and away from children outside the family, sequestered like Piper?

    By now, everyone has realized that Bristol’s “blog” is just one piece of a calculated marketing/promotion campaign, right?
    Nancy French isn’t her personal “ghost writer”, but has gotta be under contract to deliver the “blog.” Like any other entertainment industry professional personality (I hesitate to use the word “celebrity”), she’s got a PR hack.

    It may be Lifetime’s marketing staff, or a PR agency, or a talent agent representing Bristol. Notice the timing of her bloggery, FaceBook, Twitter activity, etc. It’s for the launch of her reality show, to draw an audience. Seems to be working, too.

    Sure, happens all the time. The average American 21-year-old criticizing the president routinely gets a mention and their photograph on major television network shows like and photographs on SNL and The View. Gets articles written about them. Uh huh (eyes rolling). So, hey, do we have any other Alaskan unwed teen moms who want to weigh in on the president, have an international platform and media attention paid to their thoughts?

    So, Brancy, how do you feel about breastfeeding? Don’t you wanna comment on TIME Magazine’s cover? Don’t you want to tell your personal breastfeeding story? Your mom’s? Remember how Sarah had to go through such hell to nurse Trig in the governor’s office and pump breast milk and sterilize bottles for a medically-fragile preemie with birth defects and a cardiac issue and all that, while she was in office and campaigning with McCain?

    Brancy, don’t you want to tell us all about Bristol’s personal trials of breastfeeding while attending high school in Wasilla and also commuting 100 miles a day to work in Anchorage, at the same time?
    Wouldn’t that be more relevant and personal than the president’s conversations with his children? Wouldn’t that be more interesting for us?

    Yeesh. Transparent, much?

    Ob-vi-ous-ly, the PR guys are tapping the notoriety of Sarah Palin’s personal criticism of Barack and Michelle Obama, for Bristol attention.

    Could we withhold that, guys?

    I’d put the two lesbian couples that I know up against Bristol or Sarah any day! They are educated, professional women who manage to raise 7 children between the two couples, and they do it well.

    In other words, unlike Sarah and Bristol, they actually know where their children are while they’re at work.

    Oh, and I forgot to mention. All seven kids are adopted, and most of them were not perfect little caucasian babies, and were not terribly adoptable.

    It would be interesting to see statistics on how many handicapped kids get adopted out to committed homosexual couples in comparison to how many go to heterosexual couples. My experience leads me to believe that the homosexuals would come out looking pretty compassionate, and not nearly as picky as most heterosexuals.

      My one gay couple friends adopted three children. They are all wonderful.

      The oldest boy had been so obviously neglected by his mother – not only was he malnourished, but his head was misshapen because the doped up woman never bothered to move him from his prone position. The poor baby had to wear a helmet to reshape his head for over 8 months, this under the gentle and loving care of the two dads.

      He’s a beautiful, happy boy, a good big brother, and they couldn’t be in a more idyllic family.

    lol – my first thought when I saw that cover was it was Bristol with Tripp. Both of them are the biggest 3 year olds I’ve ever seen. Time’s baby was dressed in camouflage which made him appear older, plus standing on the stool was stupid. Do we normally see infants balancing on ladders???

    If Tripp was really born in 2007 as I suspect, he would be almost 5 now. He’s ready for school, no doubt. Hopefully he’s not behind most other children. It appears he is not socialized much outside of the family.

    “It would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends (sic) parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage,”

    It would have been “helpful”? How would it have been helpful? “I really wish Barack Obama had advocated for MY position, instead of his own.”

    I love it when people like Bristol try to put words in the mouths of others – especially when those words are the exact opposite of the opinion expressed by the other person.
