"Keeping Up With the Palins"? Bristol Wants a Reality Show!Shana Aborn
Not content to have been a Teen Mom before the show became a TV sensation…or to follow her mom on the campaign trail…or to endure months of gossip about her rocky relationship and custody war with ex Levi Johnston…or to pen a memoir about her life as a young mom and spokesperson for abstinence…or to try reclaiming her rep as a contestant on Dancing With the Stars…Bristol Palin has a new life goal in her sights.
According to the National Enquirer – and mind you, this should be taken with a gigantic grain of salt – the mom of young Tripp is trying to rev up interest in a Kardashian-style reality show featuring her, 17-year-old sister Willow and Bristol’s boyfriend Gino Paoletti.
Sarah Palin’s famous daughter was signed to a BIO Channel reality show earlier this year, which would have featured her new life in L.A. with Dancing costar Kyle Massey and his brother Chris. But a few weeks ago, it was announced that the network dropped the show before it ever aired, leaving Bristol with time on her hands and a serious lack of media attention.
The Enquirer claims Bristol is at odds with her mom, the former Alaska governor, for not giving her full support to the project. Reportedly, dad Todd says Sarah hasn’t been working hard enough to back the snowmobiling show he’s been trying to pitch to cable networks.
So it looks like Bristol will have to sell her show solo and hope that the world is ready to watch the Palin sisters’ antics week after week. (Well, it might be cute to see how Tripp has grown, but – stop it. No, no, no.)
Tell us – would you watch a Bristol-n-Willow show? Or would you rather see the whole Palin clan slip quietly into has-been history?
