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.

Do you want to be a part of my DWTS journey? Then, e-mail me so I can add you to my mailing list.  (My address is BristolsBlog @ gmail.com, without the space! Make sure to use the subject line: DWTS.) I’d love to give you the latest up-to-the-minute reports about the show!

    You have a right to your opinion on marriage but you can’t claim you like gays and you’re not homophobic when you’ve written posts suggesting that Obama’s daughters watch too much Glee and children are raised better by heterosexual couples.

    People are claiming we used thousands of emails last time. No, we just got the five or six that we have in our family and call in. When 5,000,000 tea partiers call in you get alot of votes.

    Bristol, I wish you every success on Dancing with the Stars. It is a true compliment that they asked you back – as you know, they did it because they are sure there is an established audience for you. Congratulations.

    Hi, Bristol — I love your show, not only to get to know you a little better, but to see your life with Tripp and Willow. You and Willow remind me of my sister and me — LOL! So many similarities (we are now 58 and 59!) — we still love each other!!! Keep standing up for what you BELIEVE is right. Hang in there with God!!!
