DWTS Announcement: I’m on All Stars!

DWTS Announcement: I’m on All Stars! July 27, 2012


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!

  • Nightbird

    Will you get Mark for a partner again? Can’t wait to see this.

  • Ashley R

    I can’t wait to watch! Best of luck to you!

  • Laurie

    Congrats! Have fun with the show. I hope you and Gino work things out. He seems like a great guy.

  • TinaMarie

    You were my favorite on your season and DWTS is when I became a fan of yours. I can’t wait to see you perform again. This is very exciting, just what you need to lift your spirits and offer you direction. God Bless.

  • Holley

    AWESOME! I didn’t really get to watch you last time. Hope you win this time, even if you don’t, I hope you have a great experience!! Praying for you Bristol!

  • Wendy

    So happy for you Bristol — you’ve got a second chance on DWTS! I saw Mark & Cheryl last week at She! in Chattanooga & he mentioned you 🙂

  • Jan Page

    Congratulations! Can’t wait to watch.

  • Truth

    “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.

    • MFM

      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.

  • Jellybean

    I thought you were done with Hollywood bristol. Ah, what the hell, we know you will throw your values out the window for your love of money.

    • Piscean Gal

      right, Jellybean! The way she insulted the clothes she saw in the store they visited when they GOT to Bev. Hills, she decides to do DWTS again, wearing THEIR just as skimpy outfits? WHO does she think she’s fooling? I also gotta wonder, how many non fan’s TV’s are going to shot out this time?? LOL…

      • Jellybean

        She won’t last long this time, the lineup is filled with people who can actually DANCE!

        • Piscean Gal

          from your thoughts to God’s mind 🙂

          • Truth101

            But she is there and you are not. HaHaHa

    • RefudiateObama2012

      You should consider changing your name to Jellybrain. Your thought process has the consistency of jelly. If you don’t like and support Bristol, why do you bother to post here? This is Bristol’s house, and you should be respectful. If you were to come into my house and mouth off, you’d get your butt kicked. Everything you write here just shows what a miserable pos you must be.

      • Piscean Gal

        LMAO! Bristols house? no, it’s “Bristol’s Blog” for god’s sake. LMAO, threatening to kick someone’s butt for “mouthing off” on a blog? are you KIDDING ME!? AND you call Jellybean, “Jellybrain” HILARIOUS!

        Everyone has a right to their own opinion, but when you threaten, you’ve already lost the argument….

        KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON, JELLYBEAN! Some people CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH! It really wouldn’t surprise me in the least to learn that some of these other posters are Palin family members themselves…wow, how SCANDALOUS would THAT be!? 😉

        • RefudiateObama2012

          Look up the word analogy.

      • Pam

        a public blog is just that. People from any walk of life, thought process, political affiliation, gender, sexuality, nationality, race, creed or otherwise can post as long as they have internet connection and a desire to argue with nitwits. Now if Bristol or whoever wants to ‘purge’ out comments or let them stand; that’s their prerogative.
        A conversation would be very boring if everyone just agreed with what ever someone else said. As for people not being nice to Bristol and her immature decision making, poor parenting and life choices…hey, no one is making Bristol have a blog. By having a blog, she is inviting the good, the bad and the ugly. No one is making her make a fool of herself. No one is making you defend her. No one is making anyone do anything on this blog.

  • Stormie

    I’m so excited to watch!! My only concern is that both you & Shawn Johnson are on the cast list & I don’t know who is dancing with Mark Ballas or if either of you will be! I’m sure you will do an amazing job 🙂

    • Misty

      Not only that, but Sabrina could be voted to be on the show too!

  • bellagrazi

    Super excited about this, Bristol!!! It’s an honor to be asked to be on DWTS: All Stars. I hope one day God will lead you back to Gino, Bristol. But until then…you might as well dance! PS: Take that, haters! Bristol the Pistol is back!!!

  • Kirstin

    As a teen mom myself, I know how hard it is to raise a small son and the struggles it takes. I think it’s wrong to focus on a meaningless competition and NOT on your child. You said in your book how you never got to see your son while in the competition. And you said, “I’m done with the hollywood thing.” I’ve always loved you and your family, but this seems hypicritcal, Bristol.

    • Tavia Palmer

      She is trying to support her son and this is a great opportunity for her to do just that. She has a great family and support system for her son while she is away. I too am a single mother and I know that I would do what it takes to give my kids the best life possible. Thats what she is doing. Please don’t judge people you don’t even know. You have no right.

  • Jellybean

    P.S. this proves there is no god. I would think that he’d be busy trying to protect kids from being murdered in Syria, or starving in Africa. Not worrying about a spoiled brat getting an offer to do a tv show in the place she hates the most, Hollywood.

    • Tavia Palmer

      God loves everyone the same. Period! He cares about the lives of every one of his children. Even ignorant people such as yourself. I will pray for you. Remember, Jesus loves even you.

  • Misty

    Congrats Bristol! Hope you have a fun time! It’s not until Sept when filming starts, right?

  • Michael

    Congrats, Bristol!! I was so hoping they would invite you. I thought you were one of the worst dancers that had ever been on the show when you started, but I also saw how you worked your butt off every week. The improvement showed, and by the end you were pretty good. It may have been easier for me to notice since I didn’t see every episode. The difference from where you started to where you wound up was amazing. On top of that, even with all the hard work you were having to put in as well as the haters criticizing your very existence, you almost always looked like you were having fun. I’m really looking forward to watching again to see how you’ve improved!!

    @Jellybean — you’re an idiot! You’re just jealous. Admit it, if you were offered a chance to do something like this, you wouldn’t have the guts to do so. Bristol should be applauded for being willing to put herself out there AGAIN, especially since she’s already been through it and she must know she will once again have to put up with close-minded haters like you. I have a suggestion for you. If you don’t like the fact that Bristol will be on the show, DON’T WATCH!! Problem solved!!!!

    • Jellybean

      Brave bristol, heading back to hollywierd, ready to put on the skimpy outfits she hates so much, ready to not see her kid. Such a brave warrior. Our last hope for humanity.

      • Truth101

        You got that right!

      • Tavia Palmer

        Wow! Such hatred you have in you. Jealousy rears its ugly head. God blesses and uses people for his glory in all different kinds of ways. Even in “Hollywierd”

  • Maleena

    Awesome Bristol!!! Looking forward to watching you dance again!!!

  • Breanna

    I can’t wait to watch Bristol! <3

  • D. Jones

    Please help me understand.Why would anyone follow a blog of someone they do not like and then make only negative comments? Are they jealous of Bristol?Are they looking to get their name published on Bristol’s cocktails? Are they so full of hate,they want to make others live in the misery that they are living? Please,will someone help me understand?Thanks

    • Piscean Gal

      Bristol has cocktails now!?? WOW, I’m totally shocked, so much for that “born again Christian, no sex before marriage” thing she has going on…afterall, she accused Levi of practically raping her, because they had sex after she got drunk….(per her book)

    • Misty

      I don’t get it either.

  • Katlyn

    Bristol, I admire the fact that your showing your son that when life gives you an adventure, you take the offer and try new things. No matter how long your on the show or how well you do, your proving to everyone that your going to give it your all! Great job!

    For all of you who trash Bristol. Here’s a thought…Don’t read her blog. Find something more useful like showing your children that its not appropriate to negatively address someine else.

    I also am or was a teen mom, I am 23 now with a 4 year old and I don’t think its right to be expected to be with your children 24 hours a day. Show them what a work ethic is and show them to take risks and adventures in life.


  • Misty

    Bristol, I saw that Sabrina (another ex partner of Mark) is on the list of those that can be voted on to be on the show. Do you know if you have Mark or not?

  • Blue

    I do not agree or like everything you stand for, but I’m glad you have a strong voice. I wish you respected that about those who believe the opposite of you. I wish both sides would show each other more love, compassion and respect. I’m somewhere in the middle, and it makes me sick that people attack you for no good reason. You seem to be a wonderful young woman. I’m happy you have a second chance on DWTS, and I’ll be cheering for you. You are not a hypocrite. You’re taking advantage of a fun and challenging opportunity. Who cares that it makes you money? That doesn’t make you a money hungry hypocrite, you’re just a smart lady living life to the fullest. Best wishes. Stay strong.

  • MFM

    To all haters, if you don’t like something about a show, DONT WATCH. If you can’t understand that, you’re too stupid to be interacting with other people.

    Bristol, I commend you on your strength and passion. You always put your son first, you’re teaching him to live life proudly, and you’re instilling that family matters first and foremost while living your OWN life with zero regrets.

    That’s something to be admired. Tripp shines with love and happiness. I know the average 3 year old doesn’t recall many specific things from this time in his life, but he will rmember the incredible happiness you give him and the love you share.

  • With the economy being the way it is, anyone would be a fool to turn down a chance to make some money plus keep in shape at the same time. Too many college grads would jump at the chance to have a job even if it was only short termed so thanking God for this open door seems appropriate. When you were on before, you boosted the ratings and will again.
    As for Piscean gal and jellybean, these youngsters probably still live at home with their parents who don’t give a rip about them and seeing how much you are loved bugs the heck out of them, bless their hearts. They probably don’t have jobs and it bothers them to see you get “handed” a ton of money to dance. No wonder jealousy is known as the green eyed monster.

    • Piscean Gal

      HANDED is right, yet she likes to claim life is SO HARD for her, LMAO…what a joke. By the way, Eileen the ELDER, no, I’m not a teenager living at home, BTDT. 🙂 It makes me laugh how someone puts their life out there, and no one is supposed to comment on it, unless they agree…that’s not the way the world works, ELDER…you should KNOW this. Bristol does an awful lot of complaining and “second thought”-ing, so some of us, instead of brown nosing her, try and teach her to look at what she says and does and how it would make sense that people get the impression they do of her. She is a continual contradiction, and I really believe 1000% in what Willow once told her, Bristol is a 21 year old immature single parent, adding who can’t even discipline their child. Maybe her son WOULD be better off living with his REAL Daddy, Levi….

    • Misty

      I agree! I hope Bristol has a lot of fun.

  • Renee

    Congratulations on DWTS. I’ve only voted in one Season and I”ll be voting in this one. Love to vote for the Palins. Also love your lifetime show. Look forward to it every week.

  • Kimberly Sudduth

    I”M going to vote for you to win! Love your show and how patient you are with Tripp!

  • Tom

    Bristol you are so hot.i loved you on DWTS.

    • LickMeBristol

      You a chubby-chaser? Bristol looked grotesque the last time she was on DWTS. Her thighs jiggled like two bowls of Jell-o. Yuck.

  • Bristol,
    I am so excited about you being back on DWTS. I was hoping that you were going to be picked. I was
    with a Bristol and Mark fan group when you were on the last time and we still have that group. We
    will be voting for you every time and pulling for you throughout the whole time. Don’t let the nagative
    folks get to you. Just realize they are unhappy people. I know you can win I have seen your determination.
    And with season 11 under your belt I can only imagine what you will be able to do this time.

    Just remember you have alot of fans that will be in the viewing audience that have your back. And
    remember if God is for you (and you know He is) who can be against you.

  • Lena Cooksey

    Hello Bristol, reading the good news and hearing how you listen to God, touches my heart. You go for it young lady, God will never lead you where you are not supposed to go. Raising a child alone is one of the hardest jobs one could have but by allowing God to be first, you are on the right path. I will be watching to see you, the last time I voted for you every time, I imagine people will read this and think we are a peculiar people having a relationship with our Lord, but that is their problem. We know, don’t we?????
    Blessings to you and Tripp.

  • Surly Curmudgen

    The Gates after being sued from several directions now pay the Dane Geld so as to avoid further harassment. There are many wealthy conservatives who try to hide their charitable giving. That way the left can not excoriate them.
    As Peter Schweizer reported in his piece “Don’t listen to the liberals, Right-wingers really are nicer people, latest research shows,”
    Studies have borne out what I’ve always known: Liberals are cheap, ungenerous, uncharitable, unloving, self-centered, envious, greedy and covetous. They’re less likely than conservatives to devote time to ailing or needy loved ones, and they even hug their children less. And this reflects one reason why they support big government: they assuage their consciences by outsourcing their charity. I’ll add to this that they’re lustful, prideful, wrathful, often slothful and, if Michael Moore is any indication, gluttonous as well. In a word, they are the Seven Deadly Sins incarnate.

    • Pam

      Wow, I feel so terrible about myself now…as a liberal Democrat. After I work 8-10 hours a day in a public sector job, which DID NOT ruin the economy, by the way, I pay for my own retirement and benefits, contrary to the GOP), I devote some of my time to helping troubled teens and young mothers (who, unlike our Bristol here, don’t have 6 figure or more incomes to help them be single moms’). When not doing that, I generally help with fundraising drives for local charities (and donate generously myself), or volunteer my time on educational, community, state or church committees. (I’d mention that I was a huge part of our Pony Club in the area, but I wouldn’t want you guys to think that I took a larger-than-most-households-annual-earnings deduction on my taxes for my son’s horse. We didn’t use her for ‘therapy’ for him, but I sure liked going out to the stable to spend time with a wonderfully sound horse with a personality…one of God’s creatures. Huh…maybe I can claim the therapy for me and my busy life, I should call my tax lawyer.) I also find time to participate in a local community orchestra and a traveling choir. There are lots of things that I’d love to do, but I just don’t have time to do them all. Counting all my money that I’ve made from shady deals and being greedy isn’t one of them, though.
      Funny thing, even though I am busy with an activity at any given part of the day, I still have lots of time to spend with my kids, which(by the way) tell me that I hug them too much. In fact, I’ve been banned from hugs and Mom kisses in public. Poor boys, what will they do without their mom?! Who they really miss is Nana, who really gave them a lot of hugs (When they were younger, my mother came to live with us while she was dying of brain cancer…They really enjoyed spending time with Nana while my husband and I took care of her in her last days.).
      Now, I don’t generally fall to the seven deadly sins, although I must admit that flour-less chocolate cake could make me decide that gluttony might be an okay vice. Well, maybe not…
      Hmmm, what else…Okay, I also have to admit that I just purchased a not very cheap $6,000.00 road bike (made in the good old USA) to support a (self-serving) habit of wanting to ride really fast on a bike. I would have bought the Huffy, but it’s not made so well, and since 2004, they aren’t made in the USA any longer. (I know Chinese people have to eat as well as Americans, but we need to support US workers first.) So, okay, you got me on the greedy and self-serving part. At least my $6,000.00 went to US workers. So, what are we down to, lustful?…well yeah, have you seen my husband?!!! (NOT named Todd, thank goodness!) Slothful?.. Uh, no, I think I’ve established that. Prideful?… you bet, in my kids, in my family, in my president, in our great country, in all the good things I do everyday to help other people, ( and that I hit 35 miles an hour down a hill yesterday and didn’t crash my bike!). Wrathful? …Yeah, that people would be so narrow minded that they cast dispersions on me because of how I vote.
      I’d really like to have some links to these ‘studies’ that you quote oh so vaguely. Being a librarian in a high school makes me want to see you cite your sources.

  • Joseppi

    Good for you, I’m sorry though that you will be without Tripp for so long. Levi is not going to let you take him away this time.

    • Kimberly

      Levi does not give a rat’s backside about Tripp.

    • Truth101

      Levi has his hands full worrying about what he is going to do with the one on the way.

    • joseppi,

      And why would Levi have an choice in it!!

  • MiddleRoader

    Ever think that maybe God “placed this opportunity at [your] feet” to test your mettle? Maybe He wanted to you to decide that focusing on your family, your relationships, and yourself, was more important than DWTS. Just a thought…

  • GrizzlyMom

    I hope you remember that all the gay people from the show who help you don’t have equal rights to marry the person they love. Please keep that in mind as well as your comments which I’m sure they are aware of.

    • Shawn

      Head troll.

    • Kimberly

      Marriage is defined by God as one man and one woman. We do not have the right to change what God has defined. Every state that has passed laws for civil unions allowing gay people to have a contract similar to marriage is being sued by the gay rights groups, so it is these gay rights activists that are keeping gay people from enjoying a legal contract with the same legal privileges as traditional marriage. The gay rights activists are keeping gay people from the right to a legal contract!!!!

      • JR

        Is that to be found in the ten commandments?

        • CJ

          JR, it’s the very 1st commandment, actually.

          “And God spoke all these words, saying: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.”
          In other words, As CREATOR, it is imperative that His authority be be the foundation of our lives to maintain His ORDER. Disobedience brings DISORDER, chaos and suffering. Look at the world. Man has rejected His Authority and instructions. Mankind prefers to be his/her own god, his/her own authority. Ppl worship a myriad of false un-biblical doctrines and occultic practices to suit its own interests rather than do things GOD’s way. I can’t speak for you, but, I see quite a mess going on in this world and it’s getting worse and worse each day. We are seeing the results of human disobedience/rebellion = SIN. We are witnessing unspeakable global suffering….poverty, famines, disease, violence, greed, dishonesty, horrific disasters are increasing in frequency and intensity. After 6,000 yrs of this, we are headed toward major devastation and we will have no one to blame, but ourselves.
          The GOD of this universe will NOT be mocked. He has given us warning after warning because He loves us. We choose to deny it. But, there are consequences to our behavior. We need to wake up to His message to us, or perish.
          JR, there’s so much more to this. But, I hope this helps your understanding in some small way. GOD BLESS you 🙂

          • cj,

            Amen to that!!!!

          • MotherBushIsBack

            You can’t be serious CJ. Modern humans have been on earth for at least 200,000 years. Please tell me you are joking. If not then don’t pick and choose which “Facts” you want to believe. When your appendix busts DON”T go to a medical doctor and ask him to fix it. Pray to God and if God wants you to be healed he will heal you. If not then I guess he just needs you up in heaven. The stupidity BOGGLES the mind. Did any of you idiots go to school? Have you ever opened a text book? This is 2012. Do you have any idea how the world works?

      • MotherBushIsBack

        That is not true Kimberly.

    • Gary P Jackson

      “Grizzly Mom” a little fun fact from the Managing Editor of Conservatives4Palin via Twitter. 33% of the writers at C4P are gay men:

      Thank you for your “concern”.

    • Capital G

      Gay people have the same marital rights as a straight person. They can marry a person of the opposite sex just like a straight person can.

      I’m against gay marriage on a natural, scientific and logical basis. Two people of the same sex cannot naturally create offspring. Only a man and a woman can. Because this natural one man/one woman pairing creates offspring and the best environment to raise a child is in a home with a single mother and father then it is logical to extend certain financial incentives to encourage this pairing.

      If you allow same sex marriage you cannot ban straight people from marrying one another. That would be discriminatory. Allowing same sex marriage diminishes and dilutes the institution of marriage. At that point why stop people from marrying 14 different spouses including animals and objects?

      Same sex marriage just doesn’t make any sense. I’m not opposed to civil unions and granting same sex couple adoption rights in some instances – but since homosexuality (like most of our traits) is likely a combination of genetic and environmental factors I believe immersing a child in a gay environment is only going to make that child more likely to be gay – and that is not in the best interests of the child or society as a whole.

  • Me Here

    It will be fun to get you into the finals again. The media will go crazy. I hope someone shoots their t.v. again. Silly uninformed libs.

  • Becky

    Congratulations! God bless! We’ll be watching and cheering you on.

  • Kimberly

    Awesome!!! I will be watching.

  • Awesome!! Definitely want to be a part of this!

  • sodakhic

    These flaming liberals on this post are darn lucky they get to sound off. I went to Kos one time and lasted 30 sec. Obama sites, unless you’re a pilgrim of Obama your comments would never see the light of day. Way to go Bristol what’s the phone number again, this time you’re going all the way. Every Tea Partier and commonsense flyover citizen will be voting.

    • Misty

      It doesn’t start until Sept 24th or about that date. So, no numbers yet!

  • M P

    You’re pretty great Bristol. Tripp will love it once again. I love how you balance life. You know how to work and be an attentive parent. That is obvious by Tripp’s glowing smiles and laughs.

  • Maleena


    Bristol, this should be the first song you dance to!!!

  • Cathie

    I’ll be watching….just like I did when you were on before! And I’ll be cheering you on the whole way!

    Ohhhhhh, Bristol!!! I am so beyond thrilled at this news!!! So, so happy for you 🙂 GOD is sooooo AWESOME isn’t He? I so love the way you expressed it in this Blog today and YES…..He’s even in control of our Foxtrots!! LOL
    Well, you just take your precious little self back to LA and give it all you’ve got! Enjoy every moment! We’ll all be right by your side, each and every week, sending our prayers, love, hugs and support. I cannot wait! oxo

    Many celebs said they were asked around Christmas—good secret keepers lol. I know Mark recently said he wants Sabrina (he first said Shawn, but boys can be fickle too lol). I’m sad at the hate already circulating on twitter and the abc. com dwts site 🙁

    Well, if it can’t be Mark you compete with, maybe Tristan, Tony, or even Dmitry will be a good match for you. All three are extremely patient and nurturing. I know Tony wants his old partner Melissa, but Tristan is a newbie and Dmitry’s second place partner, Mya, isn’t on 🙁

    I wish you well….this is all-stars and the celebs with the exception of probably Pam Anderson have HUGE fan bases and many have won the MBT B4. The men will B tough 2 beat: Helio, Apolo, Emmitt, Drew, and Gilles <3

    Good luck…….BTW…..HINT—-don't keep repeating " I'm a single mom" or "People are gunna hate on me anyway"…..when the viewer survey was done during season11….those taglines were rated the most unpopular by you and turned voters off and they voted for Kyle. Just FYI ……. Re-watch your Paso, second, jive, Waltz, and Argentine Tango…..and remember to "play the part" while dancing!!!!!

  • Charlene Hansen-Kurtzhalts

    Bristol, I am 40. I live in Wiscondin…different, but NOT TOO MUCH THAT I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHERE YOUR ROOTS ARE….
    My mom told me about your Mom about 2 months before she was going to announce her bravery to try take on our nation with George. I am 100% republican (and really bad at typing on my new tablet fast with my kids asking for desert, so please excuse any errors!). When I heard you were going to be a young mom, I at first felt a little disappointed….in Sarah? in her young pregnant daughter? Was not sure…but learned to grow to understand that no one was to blame (maybe Levi..but is his name worth the space I just typed it in? Not sure he should be a father again either, but, God will handle that.) Anyways, I have seen the election race, your mom’s show and now yours…..YOU ARE A DELIGHTFUL, WARM, KIND WOMAN. YOU ARE A REALLY FANTASTIC MOM! YOUR VIEWS ARE HONEST, even when I do not agree with every one(although I usually do!) and I think you are brave and strong…and even at 40 years old you have impacted my life and thoughts as a momma & woman. Be nothing but proud, which you are,which is why I respest you so! Who cares what ANYONE THINKS ABOUT ANYTHING…. IF YOU &TRIPP ARE HAPPY…..THAT IS ALL THAT CAN REALLY MATTER. You are a tender mom, and I am proud you are the youth of my country.

    YAY!!! You’re coming back to DWTS! 😀

  • Deanna

    Yay! Good for you! Go get ’em, girl! Be free, let loose, and enjoy every minute!!

  • Mark Lopez aka Maze

    Rejoice with those who rejoice, thus I rejoice with you!! That is great news! It is so evident how God’s favor is with you. You are truly one blessed by the Lord! I’ll follow your DWTS as much as possible and with great enthusiasm.
    God be with You! †

  • LickMeBristol

    PLEASE tell me youve lost weight this time around- you looked like an over-stuffed sausage casing that last time. I almost hurled.

    • Tiffany

      GET A LIFE!
      ONE–Bristol looked perfectly fine and danced great!!!!!! I know she will do so well AGAIN!
      TWO– Get a Life!!!!!!
      THREE– You are just jealous and that is why you feel the need to write something mean.
      FOUR– You are probably just some TUBBA TUBBA so writes mean comments to make you and your ugly soul feel better!!

    • Capital G

      Check her out on ‘Life’s a Tripp’!

      You will be heart broken to know that Bristol has grown into a very beautiful and glamorous woman since her first appearance on DWTS. Bristol is simply GORGEOUS!

  • LickMeBristol

    LOL- Bristol is only “Done with Hollywood” until she smokes up her last paycheck and needs some more quick cash. Those are the Palin’s “principles” in a nutshell-
    “Fuck you, PAY ME”.

    • Capital G

      LOL – This is EXACTLY why I love hearing Bristol will be back on DWTS.

      The only check liberals think is an honorable check is a welfare check. If you have success on your own and are a conservative then you are doing something shameful. Only liberals can money for appearing on TV. ‘Dollar Bill’ Maher isn’t demonized for getting a Hollywood paycheck. Neither is ‘New York Money Man’ ::wink:: Jon $tewart.

    • lick,
      Ugly is not want on this page so you are out of your tree!!!

  • Amy

    I think you are an amazing Women looking to find your way in life!! I so enjoy watching you on your show and hope soon to read your book!! I am excited to watch you on DWTS All Stars!!!!!

  • Jennifer

    Keep your head up, everything happens for a reason. DWTS is another way for you to grow more into the strong person you have become. Ignore the lost souls with negative comments. You are a wonderful young woman and as someone not much older, raising a boy is not easy. You have a happy and healthy baby boy and that’s all that matters at the end of the day. You will do great on DWTS and we can’t wait to watch. Every one is entitled to their opinions, just keep the good close and let the bad roll off without a second thought. You have your family support when times get rough. Just wanted to let you know that there are people wishing you well and rooting for you again.

    “God never puts anyone in a space too small to grow in. Therefore if any man turns to Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; all things become new.”

    Congratulations! Don’t be bashful/embarrassed with your routines. Bring it because it’s ALL STARS! Your fans will back you 110%. Can’t wait to see what you and your partner will do!
    A little relationship advice:
    You can tell that Levi screwed you over and scarred you big time. And now your fences are up with Geno, because of what Levi did to you and your son. Not that I know Geno, and I am sure he can be an ass (what guy isn’t at times 🙂 ). But it really does appear that he loves both you and your son. Geno needs to understand what you have been through, and understand why you have trust issues. But at the same time, you need to put yourself in his shoes, and see that he really does care not only for you, but for your son. Coming from a divided family, it is hard to accept new kids/parents in a relationship. It takes a special kind of person to take on kids that aren’t their own, and treat them as if they were. As women, we tend to make a mountain out of a mole hill. Try not to let the little things piss you off so much.
    Believe me, my husband pisses me off about every second, and I know it’s hard 🙂
    Even if things don’t work out with Geno, just remember this little advice for your next relationship.
    Have fun and keep taking good care of your little one!

  • Congratulations, Bristol! I see the haters are starting already. Don’t worry, it’s just a bunch of ignorant people who are jealous. I know you’ll do your best and I’ll be voting for you!! Go, Girl!!

  • Capital G

    CONGRATS! I imagine you were at the top of the list with all the fans you will bring.

    I’m just loving the fact that the DWTS haters are going to go ballistic once again! WOOHOO! Nothing brings out the worst of a liberal like a Palin on Prime Time network TV!

  • Jilline

    Bristol, I love how you know how to have fun, live a fulfilling life, and always keep your son at the center of your attention. Way to be. It’s not natural to live solely for a child, putting one’s dreams away, because that will no doubt lead to resentment/regret. You’re doing well raising a boy at the worst age, attitudewise. I miss my kids’ toddler years but not that constant talkback. Everyday it was something. Kids are seemingly irrational with the moodshifts but it’s just the growth process. Any decent person can tell he’s an amazing kid, smart and endearing. He will admire you for being so strong and living life to the fullest. People yall meet love you both for a reason.

    God bless and continue living with zero regrets.

  • jojo

    SOOOOOO Disappointed in your former partner Mark…..hope U get Tristan, Dmitry, Tony, or even Derek.

    I will NEVER vote 4 Mark again!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEyUcDFb078

    • Capital G

      That is for the 13th All -Star isn’t it? It’s a choice between Kyle Massey, Sabrina Bryan and Carson Kressley.

      Mark isn’t dissing Bristol by supporting Sabrina. Bristol is in. Sabrina needs votes and Mark is simply helping her get votes. Kyle and Carson fans should be the ones who are mad at Mark!

    • Misty

      Don’t worry! Mark knew that Sabrina would need votes! He still keeps in touch with Bristol (and Sarah). Should have known something was up when I noticed that recently Sarah started following Mark on twitter, since Bristol doesn’t have a personal twitter.

  • Misty

    I have a feeling though that none of the stars are going to have the same couples. I think they are going to make everyone dance with a new partner. Anyone else think that’s the plan?

  • Sue Lynn

    I’m in…Good luck with the season!!!

  • Bristol,
    Congratulations! Rock it out and win that thing!

  • Jonathan coke

    Bristol, I am a huge fan of your parents and I am a right wing, Christian, Rush baby. It is great that you have a chance to make an impact on our generation, which is completely lost. But please understand that you are wrong about God being in control of our lives and our futures. I would be happy to talk with you and show you that we have free wills and God does not rule over us by cause and effect but rather influence and response. If God controlled our lives then everyone would be saved because He is not willing for any to perish. I hope and pray that you will make sound decisions especially since you are in the spotlight.

  • Georgia

    Bristol, you are going to be spectacular! We cannot wait to see you dance again!

  • Mariah

    Wow Bristol!!! I will watch!!!! Remember philippines 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who gives me shrenght”. I know you will do great!!! ;)~Mariah Boland

  • Sharon

    I am so happy for you , you and your wonderful family deserve much happiness. I will be watching DWTS and I wish the very best, God Bless. Always follow your heart after praying for guidance.

  • James

    I wonder if you ever question why the people who don’t like your ideas or actions out number the ones that do? Do you ever think you need re-examine your behavior or do you just shrug it off and believe everything you do must be ok?
    Good things foster more good things. If the things you do are fostering more and more hate and dislike maybe you should think about at the very least looking at yourself and see if there is anything you should try and open your mind to or work on.
    Maybe just maybe this DWTS thing is a test… if you believed before that God wanted you in Alaska to raise Tripp normally, maybe he dangled that fame and money carrot in your face to see if you would resist for Tripps sake. Just some food for thought.

    • James, it’s as if you read my mind and typed it out. I can’t watch Bristol’s show anymore after what I saw on the last two episodes. She very well may be training for dancing already and I think: “This girl has more money than she’ll ever know what to do with- WHY doesn’t she stay in Alaska and co-parent her child with his father???” (I’m the wife of a non-custodial father… I know in my gut that Levi can’t be as big of a monster as she makes him out to be)

      There’s nothing wrong with a quiet life!

  • James

    How is Tripp going to start pre-school now?

  • Stephanie

    This is so awesome and so happy for you! I’ll be rooting for you Bristol!

  • Christine

    CONGRATS BRISTOL! This is a great opportunity for you. You have prayed & worked hard. Do not pay attention to the haters. They just lazily sit around with their entitlment attitudes incredibly jealous of you & your family. While hardworking Americans are busy being productive, these haters lay around & wait for thier president to feed their bellies/pay off their debts, etc. I think it’s great that they read your blog!!! BRAVO & GOOD LUCK!

  • anonymous

    This will be a great opportunity for Tripp to be with his daddy while you are busy dancing.

  • Victor

    Hooray! Ranked number three after a phenomenal surprise winning streak. Hope to see you there. By the way I voted for you!

  • blackbird

    Bristol will you be paired with Mark? you both were great last time.

    • robhart

      I’d like to see her perform with a new partner only to showcase her ability to learn from someone different and improve all the same.

  • Laura

    I don’t know why people have to be so hateful with their comments. You can disagree with someone, and even not like them, but you don’t have to be nasty about it. If you don’t like Bristol or her family, then stop reading about her. If what she says, does, believes, etc., bothers you, then avoid her and any news about her or her family. Or if you do disagree, then be respectful about it. Do unto others…. Those of you who do write hateful comments — you are accomplishing absolutely nothing except showing everyone what kind of person you are. If your comments are intended for the sole purpose of hurting someone, what does that say about you?

  • Jud

    Congratulations Bristol – HE is providing for you so you can provide for your son. Looking forward to the DWTS new episode.

  • Grannie Annie


  • Terri

    Awesome Bristol. I never thought I (a democrat) would say this. You are an amazing inspiration to me and I am 40 years old. Thank you for reminding me God is in control. I will be following you. Good luck on the show.

  • Conservativechick

    Bristol, keep your head up. The nasty liberals are already in attack mode. How sad that they are so mean, angry and unhappy. I can’t believe some of the vile things they are writing. I look forward to seeing you dance again. (I hope it’s with Mark. He’s awesome and a good friend.)

    • joe

      How sad that Bristol is so mean, angry and unhappy (not to mention jealous) that she feels justified in bashing her child’s father on national TV and terrifying her child by kicking her boyfriend to the curb right in front of him. It’s also very sad that she she doesn’t seem to believe that God would want her to use her true talents (of which dancing is not one) to pursue a journey that would be fulfilling more than just her pocketbook. The saddest of all is that she seems to have such little confidence in her her own thoughts and ideas that she has allowed the true author of this blog to represent her as nothing but a parrot of her mother.

  • Tawny Jones

    Bristol Palin & Katherine Jenkins are the two most talented, attractive & adorable contestants ever to appear on DWTS. So glad beautiful Bristol is back for an encore.

  • Kay

    You go girl. I’ll be rooting for you!

    God had nothing to do with it you ignorant skank.

  • I am sooooo happy for you about being on the DWTS All Stars! Can’t wait to see you dancing again:) God is certainly with you and Tripp -always

  • Kena

    I just wanted 2 say I love the show & I think yr family is great, I’m a democrat from wv & 2 be honest I didn’t think I’d like yr family as much as I do but I see that yr real & yr just trying 2 make it in this lifetime! I think yr doing a great job at motherhood by the way. Oh & I’ve seen all the negitive comments about yr sister… Don’t listen & let it get u all down people are so cruel this days but I’ve got a teenage Neice that’s a lil grumpy at times 2 lol it’s normal!

  • Jacinda

    Cant wait to see you on DWTS!

  • Tana

    why is it that no-one seems to think anything about the revealing outfits and sensual movements on this program. It is nothing more than pornography in motion.

  • markk


    And about not knowing where your life is going. Yeah, you noticed that. Think about this: Unless you’re living in f ear, refusing to allow any change or opportunity, nobody knows where their life is going. Some have an overriding desire for one goal and may achieve that goal, or not. But that’s about them, not about life. You see, God wants you to have life and have it more abundantly. And that’s going to come with tears of joy and tears of pain. If you haven’t had both, you haven’t had an abundant life. At this point in your life, just knowing that you don’t know where you’re going, but not afraid to open each door and start each day, has taken you from being an unremarkable child of unremarkable people… To someone most of the nation has heard of. Let the haters hate, as you said, you might as well dance. Just remember go with God, be it dancing or fishing, or hurting over a relationship, He has felt the biggest hurts and knows the way.

  • Kirstin

    Bristol I apologize for my precious comment. I overreacted and I’m sorry! I wish you nothing but the best on DWTS!

    awsome i just got an a reason to actually watch dwts go out there and show them main landers what alaskan women have to offer

    • robhart

      Yep, we all have a good reason to watch now that you are going to be on. Looking forward to seeing you have fun again for a second time…but which partner will be yours?

  • MsDanielle

    Does THIS answer your question? I am a proud liberal, and guess who my two closest friends are? A Pakistani Muslim and an ultra-conservative Pentecostal. I’m agnostic, a supporter of gay marriage, and a woman’s right to birth control and abortion, and a truckload of other things they don’t agree with. There are some things we DO agree on, such as welfare reform, the right to own guns, and the like. However, this doesn’t matter, because I love diversity. All you are doing with this blog post is boxing all liberals into one category, and therefore, being the pot calling the kettle black. Are there intolerant liberals? Most definitely. Are there intolerant conservatives? Yes, there are. I find it irritatingly amusing that you’re so mad at intolerance exhibited by some liberals when you, yourself, exhibit the same level of intolerance and worse, hypocrisy.

      Oops, This was meant for the Chick-Fil-A post, but somehow wound up on here.

  • Pete

    So after your fight with Gino, while you were praying about your life, I’m not surprised it never occurred to you to focus on Tripp. He needs his mother now more than ever, he needs a stable living environment, he doesn’t need to be temporarily uprooted and taken back to Hollywood once again just because you were offered another reality show. You made the decision to return to Hollywood once again Bristol, not God. God simply gave you a choice, you chose to put your desires first, and the needs of your child second.

  • Tiffany W

    I didn’t see you on the show before I only watched the season with the foxy Hines Ward… But I am happy for you and you are right life is a journey. And, nevermind the naysayers they have NO IDEA what your journey is about. Trust God that this is His plan for you and everything will be ok. It doesn’t have to make sense to anybody else. I hope you and Gino are able to work things out. He loves you and your son & finding a man who is willing to step up like that isn’t easy. It’s not going to be butterflies and rainbows all the time, but if you can make it through the hard adjustment times, it will be worth it in the end…

  • kate

    Well done Miss Bristol. Good luck to you.

    Looking forward to watching you again, Bristol. That’s the only time I watched DWTS (when you were on there)!!!

  • Lisa

    Didn’t you say you were done with Hollywood?

  • 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!

    • Kate

      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.

  • Aaron Mackey

    My wife and I love your show!! Very excited for you to be on DWTS again. We just got back from the Disney Wonder cruise to Alaska. Fell in love with your state!!

    Just remember the new voting rules, pro-bristol’s : ONE email account per person, not 2,000,000,000 anymore

  • Taylor

    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!

  • ava

    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.

  • Lily

    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.

    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.

  • Congratulations, I will be watching every show…..so happy you made the all stars on DWTS. I will also have my voting fingers ready and will tell my friends to have their voting fingers ready.

  • Jessie Topper

    Bristol, I freaking love you! You are such a great mom! I read your book and could not put it down! Also love your show, I watch it every week! I can’t wait to watch you on DWTS! Good luck and keep up the good work. God Bless. Jessie

  • Beth Rotz

    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!!!

  • Diane Monsorno

    You go girl!! Just fun and dance your best!
