Two Left Feet, But Dancing Anyway!

Recently, I mentioned that I will be guest blogging at Access Hollywood during Dancing with the Stars!

Well, here’s my first one:

When I first did “Dancing with the Stars” as a teenager, I was shy, nervous, and had two left feet. Now, I’m shy, nervous, have two left feet… but am two years older!

Many people ask me the same question: Why am I coming back to the show? I know it’s a rare privilege to be on show like this. But everyone has experienced falling short of the goal you set for yourself. So when I had a chance to see if I could come back to the same show and improve – not even necessarily to win, but to perform better and to give it my all – well, I had to take it. I just want to show people that it’s possible to get back up and dance!

Read it all here.

    Taking any opportunity to improve yourself is always a good thing …

    We saw perfect timing and excellent footwork in your dance. So glad you got back up and danced. Keep dancing and we will keep voting for you.

    Bristol, you are truly an extremely humble person. You may have had two left feet before you started DWTS in Season 11, but with Mark’s tutelage and your hard work, you developed excellent technique in your first go-round. And now you have stepped it up tremendously with your performance skills. You are now a triple threat, Bristol Palin. You have the technique, performance skills and are extremely likable. And that’s how you win the MBT!

    You did great, I only watched the show because of you. You did better than the judges gave you credit for, I am so glad you got enough votes to stay, even though the show is so boring when you are done and win the trophy I am done with that show, unless Hinds Ward comes back (Ha Ha)
    Love you Bristol, good luck, keep your head up high. Glad to see Mom and Dad there for you love them also. Mark is so funny love him to.

    I also watch DWTS because of you & Mark! you look great & keep that booty shakin! ;-P I’m such a big fan of yours & I just wanted to say that I think you’re a great person/mom & I love that you don’t let the negative affect you. I always wondered why so many people were hating so I decided one day to watch your show & really people are just hating because you are who you are..a beautiful person, inside & out. I love your reality show & I’ m so glad you have a 2nd season..hopefully a 3rd!

    I think you are a brave young woman! I love your mother’s principals as a politician and wished more women were as courageous and brave as you and she! I have two sons and if they came home with a gal like you, you’d certainly pass the muster around here. LOL My rules for my sons are any girl they bring home has to like dogs, like horses, laugh at my jokes, eat my cooking and NOT be a democrat :-)
