    I love that you’re so open-minded and that you and THE notorious Joan Rivers bonded. And I hear Joan said Melissa loved your son. Keep on living happily. You’ve weathered more than most people experience in a lifetime, just because the political left has no priorities in their politics. I saw the things they said in 2008 just because you had a baby. Sick. And yet, I don’t see a chip on your shoulder or huge ego. Just an Alaskan girl loving her son, and it shows in his effervescent smile. You’re almost out of the battle stage of parenting, when little kids will do try anything to defy you and you’re always trying different ways of dealing with daily life, hoping to find your ideal method of parenting. Wife Swap, or the couple of shows I’ve seen, is great! The participants always walk away having learning how to be better, which is basically what life is about. Go forward and live a wonderful life. Tripp has his little buddy Trig by his side and can do anything he can dream up in the future.

    I am excited to see this, especially since Joan Rivers hasnt exactly been the biggest fan of your Mom, but who knows, maybe Joan can come to our side, but even if she doesnt, maybe she will have a whole new respect for the Palin family,. Melissa seems like a nice woman I know that you all will have a great time

  • Renny

    Ugh. Watching and not liking. Tripp is so much like my little nephs when they grew up. Rowdy! The tramp talk from Joan? Rude. Melissa’s son is quite a boy, but he is older than Tripp. Good kid.

  • Trueblood33

    I LOVED THIS EPISODE. Tripp is so smart and adaptable to new situations. And his bond with your dad is beautiful. That all shows a lot! I love that you brought family time to the Rivers home and how much growth in character was seen in every single person in the episode. It really does show a lot that Tripp easily picked up discipline without a huge fight at his age. It’s such a hard age to maneuver.

    I enjoyed it, Bristol! I’m glad you and Willow, and Joan and Melissa got along well! 🙂

    Bristol. This is my follow-up on the show, which I enjoyed thoroughly.

    Willow and Bristol are pioneers! They are courageous and willing to go into enemy turf to infiltrate the culture. Nothing worth fighting for gets done overnight. They were sweet, they were humble, and they were feisty like their Mom. Bristol defended herself as I expected she would. It was a good show. Nice cameo by Todd. Familiarity breeds confidence, not ignorance, which is what makes people trash the Palins the way they do, and make ignorant remarks like ones that were exposed on the show.

    I thought it was successful. A win-win for evreyone. Its time to continue cultural infiltration.. There’s much to be done! I commend you, Bristol!

  • Trueblood33

    The episode reminded me of this moment from last year. I think the fact that you all learned that An 18 yr old being an instigator with him, trying to engage in typical boy side, doesn’t do any favors is the biggest lesson of all. Because this picture of him praying is sweet. You can tell manners are in him; just got to encourage that and not the “gotta be a boy.”

  • Diane

    Joan Rivers may be crude at times…but, she certainly knows appropriate manners and without a doubt she loves her daughter and grandson. How sad to see Bristol and Willow allow Trip to rule their household! Absolutely pitiful to see how a 4 year old is allowed to RULE a household. Oh my….Trip is his Daddy made over!!!! No boundaries, “look at me!”, and rules don’t apply to me. I do what I want to do! Yep!!! You sure know who that kids Daddy is!!! And Bristol is allowing that low-class behavior to continue on in her son as well.

    • Guest

      I think the issue was Willow having fun with him and joking with him, undermining Bristol’s wishes. You saw that Bristol wanted him to behave. And by the end of the episode, you saw them both recognize what is needed. Life is learning.

      • mj58

        Don’t blame Willow, Tripp is not her responsibility.

        • Trueblood33

          But when you have someone joking with him, it makes it harder. You missed the point of that comment. It’s not like Bristol’s alone in the spoiling world. But it’s good she’s proactive about being better. NO ONE should ever think they’re perfect.

    • mj58

      His daddy don’t act like that, the behavior comes from the Palin…

    • melory3

      Low-class is you trashing a little boy and his parents at his mom’s website where the little boy can read it.

      • CarpeDiem

        He will also read about his dad being a rapist gnat and his mom a drunk.
        Per Bristol, Life’s a Tripp.
        But never mind, you are one of the GriftPac’s consultants, paid to keep the Palin brand profitable.
        You and fellow simpatico commenters here are worse than scum.

        • melory3

          Mind your language, this is a respectable place, guttersnipe.

        • otlset

          This is pro bono work champ, and a lot of fun to boot, although usually no contest when truth and reason and common respect on our side go against name-calling, falsehoods, twisted logic and endless regurgitation of phony memes from yours.

  • Palinfan

    I loved the show, and I loved seeing the real Joan also. She is truly a nice person, just a little jaded by her chosen life style. She is a very loving mom and grandma. You were awesome and I thought you did great. Mel was kind and honest and she did a wonderful job also. Willow is ready to fly and you will be there to help her out. I remember you when you first danced onto the stage with DWTS. You have grown so much and fear just drives you forward. You can help Willow move through her as well. Tripp will be just as fine a young man a cooper and you will be a great mom. 🙂

    • Guest

      Yes he will. He adapted well. 🙂

  • Trueblood33

    I was just thinking something sitting in traffic lol . I have random thoughts Melissa told Willow she could see Tripp doesn’t listen to her. BUT – that was right after Willow told him to sit on the couch, which he did without much hesitation. He also let her sweetly carry him to bed. There was also a few weird splices in editing, one big one at the end. I think the only listening issues come from her toying with him, making him laugh and goof off. It’s good she realized it’s much more fun and fun for him when he feels accomplished at a task. Thats something an experienced older parent could relay easier.

  • David

    Bristol, will you and Willow be on the show next Sunday?
    Sorry, I missed the show last night.
    Thanks for sharing.

  • bellagrazi

    So awesome! So proud of you, Bristol. Gracious, as always. My favorite part was when Joan got so emotional talking about how much she adored you. And then you got emotional. Very sweet moment. A very real moment. You have a good heart, Bristol. Even Joan Rivers couldn’t ignore that fact. She deserves a lot of credit for being honest.

    Really, What kind of mother has to tell her 4 yr old “no cussing”

    • mj58

      A mother who cuss in front of her 4 yr old.

    • Trueblood33

      A normal one. Go visit youtube and type in kids cussing. Kids pick up things from everywhere. And unless you’ve NEVER dropped one swear word in your life (right), you’re hypocritical for judging.

    • Susan

      Any child who attends even a Christian preschool, with children who have older siblings, unfortunately picks up swear words at school. You must really be out of the loop.

  • otlset

    I can’t figure out why it’s called “Wife Swap”. Where are the wives?

  • Erin

    I enjoyed the episode and liked seeing the lessons that Bristol and Melissa implemented! While this question may be irrelevant- it’s about fashion. I’ve never been able to find cute, functional boots like the ones Bristol is wearing during the opening with Tripp and Willow. So after many failed searches on Google I am reaching out on here. Bristol, what type of boots are you wearing? :o)

  • Ron Gilmer

    I tuned in on this by accident! Bristol, you have come such a long way! The remarks at the end by Joan Rivers were way out of line but you, your character, which to me is the most important, absolutely ruled the time! I know you were a credit to your family and your sister would not go past the point that she felt comfortable with; smart and sincere move! I felt that River’s daughter, alone, was not a piranha like her mother and you both, you and River’s daughter, walked the line tight but successful! I think and believe if you were picked to go up against River’s for any reason that was totally ethical you were perfect! If the reason was to try and embarrass you or your family in anyway the other side will be licking their wounds and I saw a lady fielding every move with dignity! Well Done!

    Does no one here see the disconnect when Bristol tried to claim she’s not into politics when asked about homosexuality at Joan’s dinner party. Ahem…. There was quite an opinionated piece on this blog against gay marriage. Sorry, but that’s cowardly of Bristol. If Bristol really feels that way and speaks up about it from the safety of this blog, she should do the same when asked face- to-face instead of running away. And as an aside…. Hurray for the SCOTUS ruling today! Now hopefully the White House will make sure these federal changes apply in all states

    • otlset

      What you call cowardly, others might call discretion being the better part of valor, depending on the circumstances when trying to be cooperative and friendly in other respects.

    • 1MiddleRoader

      I only caught the tail end of the episode, so I didn’t see the part you’re talking about, but I agree–She has every right to choose not to discuss it at a dinner party, but to claim she’s not into politics is a bit disingenuous when the description of this blog says it’s about how “faith, fame and politics influence her life as she seeks to inspire others.” However, she was probably wise not to get into a heated argument in which probably no minds would be changed, and it would have detracted from the premise of the show, which (I think) was about parenting styles.

    This just goes to show everybody, Pro- Sarah Palin, and Anti- Sarah Palin alike: The Palin Girls, Bristol and Willow have both follow the key advice from their mom, Sarah: ‘Get out of your comfort zone and have fun.’ They accomplished that feet with a smile and ease. We fellow Palinistas have both of your backs. Get’em!

    I Stand with Sarah Palin!!!
