Bristol Palin gets paid $$$$ for teen pregnancy work

Guess who made bank in 2009?

Bristol Palin, of course!

According to tax documents, the former ‘DWTS’ star made more than $262 thousand in 2009 for her role as a spokesperson for a teen pregnancy prevention campaign

The former “Dancing With The Stars” contestant became an ambassador for The Candie’s Foundation in 2009 when she was 18 … just a few months after giving birth to her son, Tripp … and according to tax documents, the job PAID OFF.

The foundation’s website says Bristol “plays an important role by helping other teens understand the incredible challenges teen parents face, and encouraging them to wait until they are socially and financially independent to start their families.”

According to the website, Bristol is still working for the organization.

Bristol Palin is “Not Afraid of Life”

Guess who is 20 years old, a mom, actress, reality star, and now author? None other but Bristol Palin.

The ‘Dancing With The Stars’ alum is currently writing her memoir, Not Afraid of Life, which is set for a summer 2011 release.

Not Afraid of Life will offer “an inside look at her life, her world and the things that matter most, including her family and the faith that keeps her centered,” the publisher said in a statement Tuesday.

Expect details from her time as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars, on which Palin was a runner up during season 11. The book will reveal the “grueling practices and the criticisms she endured,” the Times reports.

In addition to her writing duties, Palin also tours the country for speaking engagements. She lives in Maricopa, Ariz., with her 2-year-old son, Tripp, and has recently been dating a 20-year-old Alaska pipeline worker.

Her book will be published by HarperCollins, which also released her mother Sarah Palin’s books, Going Rogue and America By Heart, and will have an as-yet-unnamed co-writer.

Bristol Palin DENIED!

Students at Washington University don’t want to hear about teen pregnancy prevention and abstinence from Bristol Palin, so they’ve dropped her from a speaking engagement that was scheduled for next month!

Us Magazine has the scoop:

Palin, who became pregnant with now two-year-old son Tripp at age 17, was invited by the Student Health Advisory Committee to talk about abstinence during the university’s Student Sexual Responsibility Week.

But after undergrads protested the use of student-generated money to fund Palin’s reportedly several thousand dollar fee, her appearance was canceled Thursday.

“People are getting so angry because of the opposition to Palin’s lack of expertise and the high cost she is charging,” said student Philip Thomas, who started the protest.

Fellow undergrad, Ryan McCombe started a Facebook page to petition Palin’s appearance and gathered several harsh comments about the daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.

“Bristol Palin got pregnant at 17, and rose to fame on none of her own merits, only the fact that her mother ran for Vice President, she has zero credentials in this area, and costs a ton of money,” wrote one member.

Added another, “I mean, is Bristol honestly going to say that she was trying to make a baby and lay back and thought of England? Or that that she had sex, without understanding the steps to be taken in order not to become pregnant?”

Student advisory president, Scott Elman said the decision for Palin not to appear was “100 percent mutual” between her and the committee.

HAHAHA! Can you blame them?

Bristol Palin & new boyfriend want another baby?!?

I’m finding this one a little hard to believe, considering how much Bristol Palin has blathered on and on about teen activism this and that, but we’ll bite — for a minute.

According to reports, Bristol has a new boyfriend. Not only that, but this guy wants her to have a baby with him. Her new boyfriend is a 20-year-old Alaska pipeline worker named Giacinto “Gino” Paoletti.

Sarah is said to be upset about it, too. A source said, “Bristol has known Giacinto for years, but the pair recently became a couple after spending time together in New York around Thanksgiving. Like Bristol, Gino is a Wasilla, Alaska, native.”

I’m not buyin’ it….are you???
