DWTS Announcement: I’m on All Stars!


You know when something fun happens in life how you want to tell your friends first?  Well, that’s how I feel about this.  I wanted to tell the readers of my blog some amazing news. I appreciate you sticking with me through all of life’s adventures, and there’s another adventure headed my way.

I’ve been invited to be in Dancing with the Stars All Stars!!!

Many of you saw Episode 12 of Life’s a Tripp when Gino and I had our big blowout.  Well, it was very painful for everyone involved. After that fight, Tripp and Willow both dozed off, so it gave me – finally – some quiet time to think. I prayed about my life.

I asked for some sort of direction as to what to do, which direction to go…

After all, it’s complicated.  Should I focus on work? A relationship? Even after that terrible fight, I wasn’t sure about where Gino and I stood.

In other words, I prayed and asked for guidance.

After Lifetime wrapped up filming for the day, they took the microphones off Willow and me. It wasn’t ten minutes later that my cell phone rang.

It was the casting director of Dancing with the Stars.

I was ecstatic. It was like God placed this opportunity right at my feet. I called my mom right after our conversation and told her the offer I had gotten. I was totally brought to tears just thinking about the last few years of my life, and how abundantly blessed I am to have such amazing opportunities.  I’m thankful for my book, for this blog, for my Lifetime show, and now this. And, I’m thankful for you guys.

What I’m learning: God’s plan is much greater than our own.

Does that mean I’ll win DWTS?  Not necessarily. I’ll give it my all, and see what happens.

But this is what I do know. I’m trying to live every day a little more confidently, because I know that God is in control of our lives, our futures, and even our foxtrots.

    “After all, it’s complicated. Should I focus on work? A relationship?”

    How about focusing on raising your son?

    • A Mom

      She is raising her son. Who do you think you are? Your “Truth” is that of your own opinion, there is no “truth” to your statement.
      You must not have kids or maybe you do and you are the oh so perfect parent. Or maybe you are just upset with the attention and good things that have come her way so you are lashing out with a rude statement to say or do whatever you can to make yourself feel better.
      Either way, there is also a lot more to life then just being a Mom. I am a very good mom and focus on raising my kids, however I also focus on things that I need or want in my life such as work, marriage or a relationship, whatever it may be.
      What I have learned is that if you lose yourself while being a Mom and a Wife, if you do not remember that you also need to spend time doing things that are good for you and your well being mentally and physically, other then being a Mom, you will eventually be miserable. Or maybe people like you wont which is sad. You just live a very close minded and dull life.
      Some of us want to be more then just a Mom and a Wife or a Mom some of us want to do great things and be something. Those people are the ones who will look back on there life and be completely satisfied, life is so short, if a good opportunity comes your way then you need to take it. Look back on life with no regrets.
      Her son is just fine and very happy and well taken care off. He will be nothing but Proud of his Mom as he gets older and he is one lucky little boy to have her as a Mom.

      Her son is always there with her. Despite whatever opportunities that come her way, he will always be first. That’s obvious in his joyous smile.

      • Misty

        Yup. Tripp is always with Bristol and sometimes with Sarah and the family, if needed.

      • Piscean Gal

        I thought his joyous smile came from being able to do what he wants, say what he wants, and all Mommy and Auntie Willow do is LAUGH LAUGH LAUGH….no matter how inappropriate it is. Bristol admits she has no control, no discipline over her son…at 3….pretty sad….

  • Patti

    Congratulations! I will certainly be watching and voting for you. I’ve grown to really admire you and the whole Palin family. Thanks for sharing your life with us.

  • Tim

    Congrats! Hope you win.
