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.

    I just started watching your show, love it! your show has really showed me you as a person. You seem like such a great person and i love how you stick up for your family and how your not even afraid of a grown man when it comes to sticking up for your family. :) im not to much in to politics and all that jazz haha but i can say from watching this show that your mom is wonderful you can tell shes a great mother and its really made me respect her and you while watching this show :) i plan on buying your book for sure!

      Hi Bristol, I’ve been watching your show and I have some advice for you. I obviously don’t know what the past things that you say Gino did but I think that you totally overdramatized the argument in the car where you put him out. So he was annoying you? he really wasn’t doing anything, just mouthing off a little and your not his mom. If thats the worst he does consider yourself very lucky. It was very immature of you to put him out like that so you wouldn’t be ‘uncomfortable’ with Tripp clutching his arm and begging him not to go. Then you tell him you’ll find him a good daddy?! You seem to think that you have matured in every way as much as anyone can get just because you had a baby. While it does mature you, giving birth does not give absolute wisdom. And you can be very immature. I was shocked that Gino even wanted to meet you in Seattle and then you blame him for you having to leave Tripp and drive yourself when that was all you. And when he offers to drive the rest you got up on your hind legs and told him you didn’t need a hero you could do it yourself! Of course you can do it yourself Bristol but people need people and you need to learn to accept help and not be so quick to bristle at men, proving over and over that you don’t need a man. We get it, you’re an indepentdant woman. But wouldn’t it be nice to have a partner so you don’t have to do it all yourself? If Gino’s not the one so be it but you will have a hard time maintaining relationships if you remain so defensive and bitter. Can’t hug a porcupine:) Another example of this is the argument you had with Willow on Valentine’s day. You repeatedly told her to get out. You can leave now, really you need to get out of my house. She ignored it til the fifth time and she left. Then you said ‘I can’t believe she left!” What?! You threw her out then spent the rest of the show claiming she abandoned you, stuck you with everything! you have a lot of growing up to do. One last thing I wanted to tell you. I have worked over 7 years in childcare. You need to discipline Tripp. You aren’t doing him any favors by not. Time is running out, the first 5 years set the tone. When he hits you you need to get face to face with him and tell him he absolutely cannot hit mommy. Put him in time out. After he sits, tell him again why you punished him and make him apologize and hug him. He is going to get to school and teachers will not coddle him. He will constantly be in time out and miss activities and furthermore, when a child cannot be controlled they kick them out. There is no legal obligation. Trust me, he can’t bite and curse and hit, it won’t be tolerated and you shouldn’t either. You laughed when he cussed. I know that they are so cute often you’re first instinct is to laugh but you have to keep a straight face, laugh later. And just remember you still have a lot to learn but you need to lighten up with the talk of how mature you are and realize you are young and sometimes you’re wrong. And forgive Levi. I think it will help you move on and not let that experience affect your outlook. Pray about it, i do admire you’re faith.

    GOD BLESS you, Bristol. Keep up the good work. I love your Lifetime show. I record it and watch it on Wednesday nights. It really is something I enjoy. I don’t usually watch DWTS, but I did when you were on before and will do so again. God is working in your life and will continue to do so. Just enjoy life.

  • Misty

    Yay! The first and only time my kids and I ever watched DWTS was because you were on there Bristol! Congrats, we will be watching you again! We like the Lifetime show too. God bless you and your family!

    wonder when God will step in and suggest you raise your son in a decent fashion. hopefully they’ll pair you with a gay dance partner.

      ava ,
      You are judging when you suggest she is not raising her son in a decent fashion. You don’t
      know that to be a fact. That little fellow gets alot of attention from his mom. Bristol is very
      seldom separated from him it seems. He is in a family that really loves him.
