Wife Swap Question #4: Is Tripp Still on the Sticker System?

I appreciate all the love and comments I’ve been getting about my time on Wife Swap – it seemed like many of you really enjoyed seeing Melissa Rivers and me switching lives! Through Twitter and Facebook, I’ve gotten some questions about the show, so I thought I’d go through a few of them.

In case you missed them:

Question Number 1: “Why didn’t you just go on Fashion Police?”

Question Number 2: “Where did you get your cool headboard?”

Question Number 3: “How did you feel when Joan Rivers called your son illegitimate?”

Lastly, some of you have asked how Tripp is doing on the discipline system that Melissa started while she was here.  Actually, we didn’t keep that up!  However, you’ll be happy to know he’s been better about sleeping in his own bed though!

I’ve been getting him to bed at the same time every night, which is a huge success for us. I’ve also been better about setting a schedule and actually keeping to it.

Plus, I’ve been cooking dinner every night for the last few weeks.

I’m still learning how to do this whole motherhood things well.  But I’m so proud I’m actually trying!

    She acts like she just became a mother! The kid is 5, right? I became a mother at the same age & “real” people have to grow up quickly. I worked full time & went to school full time without my mother or tea-baggers throwing money at me. I’m not bragging but she acts like she is a young NEW mother. Stop playing the victim & get a real job! Another thing, she wants us to believe that the discipline issue is no more–overnight? Apparently this woman does not live in the real world.

      If you are bragging about your background … why the lack of grace and full of snarkiness and know it all attitude? These fruits of your so called background has prouduce all the these negative attributes and bitterness. Your and your ilk’s “victim” accusatons are not working… she keeps coming back happy and w/out bruises from you whiney litlle punches. Obviously frustrating because you & your ilk keep swinging these little whiny punches.

      • Pete

        The fact that Bristol has written several blog entries on this topic is proof that she isn’t happy or without bruises in regards to her poor parenting skills. She simply continues to make herself look like a thin skinned whiner. Joan Rivers never said that Tripp was illegitimate, She said when she was growing up, children born out of wedlock were considered to be illegitimate. Only a true coward makes false accusations against another to garner sympathy for themselves. Bristol needs to be called out for her very un-Christian like behavior!

        • Bree Merr

          Funny how we see things differently… you whiney, negative and arrogant… me.. enjoying the growth of a young lady learning lessons in life. Wheher we see things with whiney bitter, jealous eyes or seeing the growth with positive eyes…. it is a choice… no one is making you whine.. you choose to do so.

      • ManxMamma

        Bree, it’s so odd that I saw a person with very opposite views from you get attacked this morning for using the word ‘ilk’. And now here you are using the same word. What a small world.

        • Bree Merr

          meaning of the word “ilk”… people or things similar to those already referred to.
          I would use this word again..

    • Colleen Phillips

      How is Bristol not a real person? No one is throwing money at her – she has earned her own way and she does have a real job working for a dentist. How is she playing the victim? And she never said the discipline issue is “no more.” As a mother of 3 and a grandmother of 3, I know full well that the learning curve of being a good parent and grandparent is an ongoing process that is never complete. I’m sorry that your life experiences have made you such a bitter judgmental person. Perhaps when you have lived a little longer and matured a bit more, you will learn not to judge others so harshly.

        Colleen, true conservative was saying ” real” in reference to the reality most teen moms face: they have to work at dull jobs and go without in order to provide for their babies and they don’t have an abundance of people available to help care fir them nor the money to pay others to. As a result, they grow up fast. Bristol, given her celebrity status, has a much different situation and parlayed into into easy money. More money in fact than she would have made had she not been a pregnant teen.

        • Colleen Phillips

          Y’know, considering the awful ways in which Bristol and her family are constantly and viciously attacked, whenever they’ve never done anything to anybody, I think Bristol’s situation comes with its own set of challenges that other single moms never face. She was thrust into the public realm and smartly used her “celebrity status” to provide some financial security for herself and her son. And now she is attacked for that. My point is that the Palins are not “throwing money” at Bristol. How do you know what “most” teen moms do? I know lots of single moms, and the smart ones develop a network of helpful friends through church or other venues if they don’t have the moral support of a close family. Others simply depend on the gov’t to provide health care, day care, and groceries, which is okay, as long as they are at least working toward a better life. Being a single mom is a challenge, no doubt, but not an insurmountable one, regardless of one’s circumstances, and help is available for even the poorest of young single moms. Just because Bristol isn’t all alone raising her child in the ghetto, she isn’t allowed to talk about the challenges of being an only parent?

          • melinda

            Colleen, Bristol doesn’t know the challenges that most single moms face. She owns a house, fancy truck, boat, etc at the age of 21 thanks to selling her life and her sons to the tabloids and reality TV. And by the way, I wouldn’t call that “smart”. Smart would be getting an education or some skill and supporting herself an her son through a career as opposed to be famous for being famous. That can only last so long and is not a good way to raise a kid. How do I know what “most” teen moms do? It’s pretty obvious and it sure isn’t what Bristol is doing.

            And yes, teen moms and many single moms need help from other, including government in order to make a good life for themselves and their children. This help includes government assistance and programs and employment laws designed to help working mothers. I’m glad you mentioned this, because it is exactly what Sarah Palin idiotically dismissed this week.

        I’m far from bitter, which is why i wonder why this woman keeps calling everyone out on her mysery. I’m very happy and proud of my own accomplishments. I worked full time and got a masters degree in 3 years of hard work. So far from bitter I am very happy and proud. thanks!

        • Bree Merr

          wow a happy, well educated person on this blog acting whiney. There are a lot of people I don’t care for but spending time on their blog to whine?? Why waste such time? I’m curious.. what really is your problem?? There is something “off” about the whine club here.

        • Colleen Phillips

          Oops! I just realized you are nothing but a troll – “True Conservative” calling other conservatives “tea baggers?” Liberal trolls are the only people who use that ugly obscene term. You can say whatever you want. Your initial post was bitter, angry, and judgmental, or maybe just jealous? Or perhaps you would like to elaborate about how wonderful you are, having worked and gone to school simultaneously. After all, no one else has ever accomplished so much. Yawn. . .

      • ManxMamma

        Perhaps when you have lived a little longer and matured quite a bit more, you will learn to stick to the same story. Bristol words for a dentist? She has said and written that she works for a dermatologist.

        • Colleen Phillips

          I stand corrected – but really, dentist, dermatologist, what difference does it make? Point is, she has a real job.

          • melinda

            Colleen, it’s very doubtful she has a “real job”. Bristol has been absent so much in the past few years doing DWTS twice, her reality show, an extended stay in L.A. after the first DWTS woking on a failed reality show, living at the house she bought in AZ, book tour, junkets with Sarah….. What office is going to keep a full time job for someone away so much and for such extended periods?

      • notleft

        and out of the tree how far did the apple fall? were any of them married?

  • lil One

    If the woman had a discipline system, why did she wait until Mellissa switched roles in national t.v.–That’s very suspicious. I have a feeling that lil Sunny and Levi have done everything they can to make things normal, since they truly DO live like a normal family. I hope Levi appreciates that beautiful wife of his.

  • lil One

    now they are taking off the “likes” from posts which disagree with them. lol
    how childish!!! lol
    and yeah….I thought they had “thick skins” lol

  • notleft

    what a sad sack she is, can’t even raise one kid,

    • notleft

      with all the crap posted about what a involved mom, $araScam was and is, and this big loving family, why does barstool act like she has no clue on how to raise a child?

  • Susan Miller Schnock

    What a bunch of bull you people are full of. First off no matter what age you are there is no such thing as a perfect parent. PERIOD! Also there is no such thing as a Perfect Child! I am a mother of two and I know that I am not a perfect parent and my children are not perfect. My children can give me a run for my money. They are both teens now and they know how far they can push things, and boy can they push. With that being said I also know that when I send them out into the world they have good manners and behave themselves. Those who think they have the best behaved children usually have the brats and bullies of the world. (on a side note Joan Rivers is a loud mouth witch and bully who has never grown up! I have no respect for grown ups who like to make fun of others rather it’s by fashion or otherwise.)
