It hasn’t been easy for Bristol Palin on Dancing With The Stars. She continues to receive flack from the judges and viewers. Many believe she is still on the show merely because she is Sarah Palin’s daughter.
The pressure is surely starting to take it’s toll on Bristol.
Bristol and her younger sister Willow spewed a homophobic slur online when a classmate made fun of the Palin family.
Bristol took to her Facebook page to address the issues currently revolving around her. Nobody said fame was easy!
Of their derogatory statements, she said: “Willow and I shouldn’t have reacted to negative comments about our family. We apologize.”
She then took time out to thank her DWTS supporters: “On a nicer note, thank you for supporting the great competition in Dancing with the Stars!”
Hours later, she added, “Thank you supporters who continue to support. The haters are already pulling out all the stops this week to destroy.”
Kelly Osbourne might not be watching the same show we are, because she just released a statement saying that she thinks Bristol Palin has what it takes to win the Mirror Ball trophy on Dancing With The Stars.
Still, many have wondered how she’s made it as far as she has already, myself included. In a new interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Kelly says that you never know what’s going to happen.
“I really feel like Bristol Palin is going to give everyone a run for his or her money,” Osbourne, 26, tells Ellen DeGeneres on Friday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I have to say this you have to separate the person from the family. She’s out there and she’s trying.”
While she’s not banking on Bristol – or any other contestant – Osbourne does say she thinks Dirty Dancing Jennifer Grey will also make it to the final round.
“You never know with that show,” Osbourne says, recalling her own dance-floor days. “It’s crazy you don’t always see what the people see at home and why they vote.”
What do you think? Who do you think is going to win?
I have to admit, I do not watch Dancing With the Stars. It makes my skin crawl, I cannot STAND this show. But when I got online this morning and saw this video, I had to share. This here is a perfect example of why I can’t watch. I just do not find it entertaining in the least! Bristol Palin is a terrible dancer!
What’s hilarious is watching her partner, Mark Ballas dancing circles around her.
Apparently judges gave Bristol the second lowest scores of the night, the lowest going to Margaret Cho.
“Bristol is terrified,” a source tells Us Weekly of Bristol Palin, 19, who’s about to hoof it on Dancing with the Stars (debuting September 20 on ABC).
The mom — fresh off her broken engagement with Levi Johnston, dad of son Tripp, 20 months — “isn’t naturally outgoing,” adds the insider, “and doesn’t have any performing background.”
Palin’s partner, Mark Ballas, 24, even had to quell her anxiety. “Mark told her, ‘Just stop and breathe,’ in rehearsal, because she was so stiff,” continues the source.
But Ballas was in need of a chill pill too. The show alum, whose partner Shannen Doherty was booted from DWTS in the second week last season, “was bummed at first. He was hoping for someone more dance-inclined,” adds the source. “But he’s happy now, because he realized how much press they’ll get!”
And Palin’s biggest hurdle may not be the dance steps but the daring outfits. “My clothes will be the most conservative of everyone’s,” Palin tells Us. “That’s how I am, and that’s how I want to dress. But it’ll be good — and the rhinestones and spray tans. That’ll be fun!”
E! is reporting that Sarah Palin’s 19-year-old daughter Bristol Palin has been cast on the 11th season of Dancing With the Stars, set to premiere Sept. 20.
As for the reports that David Hasselhoff, Audrina Patridge, The Situation and Brandy will also be part of the cast, according to E!, the news is true!
There were rumors that Kirstie Alley would join, along with Bachelorette’s Ali and Roberto, but so far looks like they won’t be on the show.
A rep for ABC says: “We don’t comment on casting rumors. The real Dancing With the Stars cast will be revealed Monday, Aug. 30, live on ABC during Bachelor Pad.”
This will be Bristol Palin’s second gig with ABC, having guest starred last month on ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager. It seems this teen mom may be taking a page from Melissa Rycroft’s book, using DWTS to rebound after her recent breakup (with Levi Johnston).
Like we didn’t see this one coming! Remember mama knows best Bristol.
Bristol Palin calls off her engagement to Levi Johnston.
“I broke up with him,” Bristol told People. She added that she has seen Levi only once in the past three weeks.
“The final straw was him flying to Hollywood for what he told me was to see some hunting show but come to find out it was that music video mocking my family,” she added. “He’s just obsessed with the limelight and I got played.”
“Through this whole experience I know I need a man who’s going to be completely honest with me and someone who loves me and Tripp and wants to be with him all the time. I also want someone who has religious beliefs and a good family.”
Just recently news was spreading the Levi could have possible fathered a child with ex Lanesia Garcia. Bristol was said to be very upset even though Lanesia denies that Levi fathered her child.
I have to say, that I think Bristol is making the right choice for her and her child. She seems like a genuine person. I hope she finds someone deserving.
