“Ah yes…Bristol-the-diva! Silly critics! See her diva-ish-ness,” Palin Tweeted Thursday, as web chatter continued to mount over her daughter’s controversial placement in the final three of Dancing with the Stars.
The former Alaska governor isn’t the only one in Bristol’s corner.
DWTS alum and other celebs gave plenty of sympathy to the 20-year-old single mom at Us Weekly’s Hot Hollywood: Stars Who Care bash at the Colony Club in Hollywood Wednesday.
“You can find ten reasons why she deserves it and why Brandy deserves it,” Louis Van Amstel told Us. (Brandy was famously shown the door on Tuesday and told Us Thursday she’s feeling “better.”)
“Brandy is the better dancer,” Amstel admitted. “But then again, Bristol had to fight for several weeks to be accepted as Bristol and not Sarah Palin’s daughter.”
Said former DWTS champ Kym Johnson: “She’s had a different journey [from] Brandy — she had no dance experience, so I think Bristol’s what the show’s all about.”
What do you think of Bristol going to the finals on DWTS?
Sarah Palin has another teen pregnancy scandal on her hands – and this time it’s Bristol’s younger sister Willow!
The former Alaska governor recently flipped out after learning that her 16-year-old daughter Willow was not only having sex, but feared she might be pregnant by her 18-year-old boyfriend, sources told The Enquirer (consider the source).
“Sarah was shocked,” a close source divulged.
“She felt like she was reliving a nightmare!”
According to the source, Willow began to panic when her period was a week late.
“She went out and bought a home pregnancy test and was on pins and needles,” divulged the source.
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.
