Bristol Palin Gets a TV Show

Bristol Palin Plastic SurgeryFinally, Bristol Palin is following in her mom’s footsteps. No, she’s not running for student body president at Arizona State University where she was supposedly going to attend college and where the house she purchased with her Dancing With The Stars earnings is located. I’m talking about her mother’s reality show footsteps; you didn’t really think I was talking about politics, now did you? Instead, the younger Palin is moving out to La-la land (or Los Angeles) to work for a charity and shack up with brothers Chris and Kyle Massey and to capture it all, A&E and the BIO channel are turning it into a reality show. (Though I’d believe it if it turned out that things happened the other way around, if you know what I mean.)

The show aims to show Palin’s move with her two-year old son, Tripp, from Alaska to Los Angeles over ten episodes according to The Hollywood Reporter, but I think that refers to likely adjustment period that comes along with it rather than literally 10 half-hour episodes of a road trip with a two-year-old (because that would be absolutely hellish — they’re called the terrible twos for a reason). Palin is only 20 years old and a single mother and she’ll be taking her son into a brand new environment, so I can’t imagine this show won’t be without some sure-to-be-hyped drama — perhaps something like MTV’s Teen Mom, but Palin style and with more L.A. glitz. The show will air at the end of the year and I’m sure it won’t help her escape media scrutiny any more than going on Dancing With The Stars did.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
