As if she hasn’t been in the spotlight enough, Bristol Palin will definitely be joining the cast of Dancing With The Stars (along with stars like Rick Fox, Jennifer Grey, and Kyle Massey)–and she doesn’t care if anyone, especially baby daddy Levi Johnston, thinks she’s a fame-chaser. After last night’s live announcement of the DWTS season 11 cast, the young mom of baby Tripp and daughter of 2008 Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, spoke about her decision.
Palin told RadarOnline that, despite what Johnston may say, she’s not doing the show for “that kind of spotlight,” but rather just wants to participate in something “fun and positive” for herself.
“I want to get in shape, I want to learn new dance moves and I want to step out of her comfort zone,” Palin said. Regardless of what anyone else might say, she insisted she’s absolutely not joining the reality show for any added fame or attention (really?). But according to Palin, she doesn’t really listen to what others say anyway, and has completely removed herself from Johnston’s whirlwind of comments.
“I don’t pay attention about what he’s doing,” the 19-year-old said. “I haven’t heard anything. I don’t pay attention to the tabloids.”
