Gov. Palin: “I hope you’ll join me in tuning in tonight” for ‘Life’s A Tripp’

  • Bristol’s new show “Life’s a Tripp” premieres tonight on the Lifetime channel at 10pm/9c! I think people viewing the show will see how independent and hardworking she is — as is Willow who is shown making the move from graduating high school early to working and moving on to her next school. Bristol’s show is the antithesis of any glamorization of single parenthood. Hers is a very real life (in fact, the show’s producer recently mentioned that Bristol has a very ordinary job, but that was one of the few places she wouldn’t allowed filmed because it is in a doctor’s office). Single motherhood is shown to be as difficult as it is — especially with the added challenges that come with having people irrationally dislike you. But I think people will also see that Bristol doesn’t see herself as a “victim.” She just deals with the challenges, learns from them, and moves on. The show’s first installment tonight lays the foundation of the show, so it has to delve into some backstory; but the series moves on from all that stuff and becomes a great Alaskana show that keeps getting better as it goes. I hope you’ll join me in tuning in tonight.

Sarah Palin husband Todd is among those competing in NBC’s new reality series “Stars Earns Stripes,” the network has revealed Tuesday.

[…]

Palin, meanwhile, is joining a list comprised mostly of celebrities who are serial reality series participants, including: boxing royalty Laila Ali, actor Dean Cain, former NFL player Terry Crews, singer Nick Lachey Olympic gold medalist Picabo Street, NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” trainer Dolvett Quince, and WWE star Eve Torres.

Each week on “Stars Earn Stripes,” the celebrity competitors, teamed with members of the military of law enforcement, will attempt to complete “missions” inspired by actual military exercises.

“This new series pays tribute to members of our dedicated armed forces and civil law enforcement and I know that the winnings, which will be donated to first-responder charity and veterans groups, will make a difference and send an important message,” Clark said in a statement about the show, which Burnett is exec producing with Dick Wolf; and which debuts in August.

Bristol Palin: Huckabee’s People Didn’t Schedule My Appearance

Posted by Dr. Fay on June 19, 2012

Bristol responded to Mike Huckabee’s criticism of her on his radio show in this blog post:

Mike Huckabee, the Scold

June 19, 2012 By Bristol Palin 77 Comments

Yesterday, I was at Track’s house for his last night in town before he deploys back to Afghanistan. That’s where I got an e-mail explaining that Mike Huckabee had just told his radio audience that he was very disappointed in me.  Here’s what he said:

We had earlier in the hour that Bristol Palin would be joining us about a new reality t.v. show that she’s going to be doing.

And apparently, she just didn’t show up.

So guess what?  I don’t guess we’ll be watching tomorrow when her new show lines up.

Too bad.

He goes on to say that he doesn’t believe children of politicians deserve to be criticized for their parents’ decisions.  He regrets his own children have suffered for his own choices as a politician.

There’s a different story once the child decides, “Hey, I like this spotlight. I like the limelight. I want to have more of it,” then, you know, they become fair game.

Then they are there by their own choice and their own volition. So if you go on Dancing with the Stars, or go on a lecture tour, or do a reality show, then, all bets are off…

He continues by saying he didn’t think David Letterman was fair to me during the 2008 campaign.  However:

I hope she’s ready for it, because now it’ll come not because of what her mother chose to do but because she’s said, “Hey, I want to be in the spotlight.

I understand Gov. Huckabee has a huge challenge creating a radio show he wants as the alternative to Rush Limbaugh. I understand he wants to fill his show with a little controversy – and what better way than to create headlines telling the world he now considers me “fair game.”

However, does he really believe I don’t understand what it’s like to be “fair game?”  Anyone who’s seen this blog – or the newspapers or the television – knows I’ve been through quite a bit of media speculation, ridicule, scorn. I’ve been writing about my own political ideas and have been “fair game” in my comments sections.  I’ve also defended myself from vile comments from leftists like Bill Maher.  Is Mike Huckabee joining into that scorn supposed to intimidate me?

You’ve got to actually listen to it, to get the full effect of his scolding tone.

(Warning: it might make you feel like you’ve been caught smoking in the high school bathroom!)

I would’ve considered it an honor to talk to his viewers about my show, my experience of single motherhood, and what a wonderful little boy Tripp is.

But the fact is, his people didn’t schedule my appearance. I’d said I’d do the show, I sent them my phone number, and they apparently neglected to schedule a time. Of course, mix-ups do occur in life.  Schedules aren’t communicated, errors are made.

But this isn’t the first mistake on his show.  Maybe instead of lecturing me on being irresponsible, he should get his own team in line.

Then, maybe, we could talk.

But I probably would just call Rush instead.
