Bristol Palin Taps Her Inner Actress
Matt | On 24, Feb 2010
Word has it that Sarah Palin’s oldest daughter, Bristol, will soon grace the Hollywood stage. If you remember, Bristol and her then-boyfriend, Levi Johnston, had their first child in December 2008 – becoming a pretty recognizable teenage parents during the election season.
Well, the capitalism wheels keep turnin’ for everyone. First, Levi bared all for Playgirl (semi-NSFW photo) last year. Now, Big Mama Bristol is earning a few coins herself spreading the word about getting preggy too soon. The saying is true that babies are real people and they cost a lot of money!
Bristol will make an appearance this summer in “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” a drama on the ABC Family network. She will portray herself .. you know .. really stretching those acting chops! Her character is the friend of another teen mom on the show.
I applaud Bristol for getting her moment in the sun. But, an actress?! Wasn’t she just playing hockey a couple of years ago in the middle of nowhere Alaska? Then her mom is always degrading “Hollywood” – be it the size of the actresses, the liberal slant, or the fact that they roast the hell out of her. (Anybody seen Tina Fey’s impression of Sarah?! Classic). This power move seems a tad bit hypocritical for the Palin family. I’m just saying…
So, we’ll have to see how much “depth” Big Bristol brings to this role of .. ahem .. herself. I’m setting the DVR right now!! ::SideEye::
