Bristol Palin: THANK YOU AMERICA! I appreciate every single vote cast.

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 10, 2012

Bristol thanked her fans for voting for her on DWTS All Stars Week 3:

Thank you guys!!  I know that I have the most wonderful people voting for me — I appreciate every single vote cast.  This week was a hard week, as everyone saw.  But you guys were there to support me, and I’m so thankful for that!

For fun, I thought I’d celebrate making it to Week Four by showing a dozen photos from the first three weeks.  Enjoy!  (You may have already seen one or two of these.  And oh yeah –warning — the last one is gross, but I wanted to show you what dancing in high heels does to feet!)

Governor Palin also posted a comment and photo on her Facebook page:

The boys are busy waiting for mom and mom/grandma to exit the DWTS studio! Thank you to all Bristol & Mark supporters who voted for them to keep on dancing! They honor you.

Bristol Palin: A Little Perspective about DWTS from Afghanistan

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 9, 2012

A Little Perspective about DWTS from Afghanistan

October 9, 2012 By  19 Comments

Typical Palin picture – the day Track left for his second deployment.

As many of you know, my brother Track is in Afghanistan.  This week, I got the rare chance to talk to him over the phone, and I was so excited to hear his voice and know that he was safe.

While we were talking, I told him about Dancing with the Stars All Stars and he sounded confused.

“What show?” he asked.

He had no idea I was on DWTS!

There’s a lot of talk about being “in jeopardy” on this show, but most of us never experience real jeopardy.  The fact that Track didn’t even have the time to think about Hollywood or a dance competition put all of this in more perspective for me.

Thanks, Track, and all of the United States military.

For the perspective and everything else you do!

Track says goodbye to Tripp at the airport when he went back to Afghanistan.

Gov. Palin: Happy Columbus Day, California resource exploration, and DWTS All Stars tonight

  • Happy Columbus Day. Thank goodness for the determination of all bold explorers and innovators—yesterday and today—who don’t let the critics hold them back. May their courage and determination always inspire us to greater heights and encourage us today to seek responsible resource development opportunities.

    Speaking of resource development, I’m in California again today and the gas prices here are just ridiculous. One solution to this problem is of course increased exploration domestically in order to tap our plentiful supplies and not let the naysayers hold us back.

    I’m in California today to support Bristol. I’m sorry to see that she’s again getting those annoying death threats and more “mysterious white powder” sent to her while on DWTS this All-Star season. These threats sure waste a lot of time, production and public resources; but do the haters really think this will stop Bristol and Mark and the show’s producers from keepin’ on keepin’ on? Silly critics — after all these years of goofy antics like this we find these efforts are actually quite motivating! Bristol’s not letting this get her down. Anyway, tonight is a “double elimination” night, so hopefully everyone who has supported her so far will do so again! I’ll be sure to post the call in number and voting instructions later today before the event. Thank you again to everyone. It means a great deal during this fun and highly competitive event, and it’s sure appreciated!

    As Bristol shares with anyone targeted by the naysayers in life: “Hey, the haters will hate anyway; the critics will criticize, so you might as well dance!”

Mark Ballas: Bristol and I will dance the paso for ‘Iconic Dance Week’ on DWTS

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 6, 2012

From Mark’s ‘DWTS’ blog at USA Today:

Last week, we had a rough time with the judges but our awesome and loving fans pulled us through, for which both Bristol and I are super grateful.

It was definitely a challenge doing a country quickstep, but I was happy to try it since dancing to Bristol’s favorite Gretchen Wilson song inspired her. Ultimately, we want to enjoy this process and if it takes a country quickstep, we’re going to do it!

Since my dad’s side of the family is from Houston, shooting guns was not new to me. We had an awesome time and I think Bristol was surprised at how well I handled a revolver! I do have to say, she was a hell of a shot with the shotgun.


The judges slammed us a little for breaking hold this week, but it’s OK. We wanted to use the song to its full capacity and really capture the country feel. Breaking hold is a risk and you never know whether the judges will let you get away with it. We weren’t the only couple to do it this week, although we were the only couple that paid for it.

As always, we want to thank our fans for keeping us alive to dance another week. It’s never fun to see anyone go home and we will all miss Joey Fatone. He’s is such a goof and so much fun backstage that I know his absence will be noticed.

This week is going to be interesting because the celebrities have creative control and get to choose the theme, the costumes and choose a fan favorite song from past seasons. The theme is “Iconic Dance Week,” which should be pretty fun.

I’m enjoying Bristol’s creative input. So far, it’s been a good time, and a new challenge for her. Our dance is the paso, which was one of her highest-scoring dances last time around, so we shall see how this one goes.

Bristol and Mark dance the quick step to ‘Red Neck Woman’

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 2, 2012

Video retrieved from  

Bristol and Mark danced the quick step to “Red Neck Woman” on DWTS All Stars last night.  The judges didn’t seem too pleased with the improvisations in their “Wild West” version of the quick step, so their total score was 18.   Therefore,  it will be up to the voters (and the good Lord) to decide whether Bristol and Mark stay tonight.

Here is what Bristol posted on her blog this morning:

All That Really Matters

October 2, 2012 By  21 Comments

Thanks, Grandma!

We agree.  And we hope that all our votes helped too and that Bristol and Mark will go on for Week 3 of DWTS All Stars!

Mark Ballas: Next week we’ll be dancing the quickstep to Bristol’s favorite song

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 29, 2012

DWTS Ballas Wk1

From Mark Ballas’s ‘Dancing With the Stars’ blog:

10:32AM EST September 29. 2012 – Week 1 down, nine to go …

Bristol had such a great first week, and she received the “most improved” award from the judges, which I think is 100% deserved! On the dance floor, she was more outgoing than she has ever been and I firmly believe she’s got even more of that magic in her.

Our next dance is the quickstep, which promises to be a lot of fun because it’s not exactly conventional. At this stage, I’ll do whatever it takes to get Bristol to exude confidence and personality.

MORE MARK BALLAS: Read last week’s entry

TWITTER: Follow Mark @MarkBallas

This week we are dancing to her favorite song. It’s been a bit of a challenge for me because I’ve never danced quickstep to this genre of music, but I’ve never seen her so excited and enthusiastic about dancing. She is loving it and that’s all that matters!

We also did something extra special this week to help get into the spirit of the dance and it was a blast. .. Put it this way: I hit the bull’s-eye quite often, and did it in true Houston fashion!

Bristol and Mark Dance the Cha-Cha-Cha for Their Dance 1 Performance on DWTS

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 25, 2012

Video retrieved from  

Bristol and Mark danced a lively Cha-Cha-Cha on DWTS last night.   Governor Palin, husband Todd, and Tripp were spotted in the audience early on and again during Bristol and Mark’s  performance.

Emily Yahr at the Washington Post wrote:

During her performance, Bristol appears to have about 10 times more confidence in one dance than she did in all her dances on the previous season — but that’s possibly what happens when a girl has two more reality shows under her belt. Plus, her whole family came out to support her. We get our first Sarah Palin sighting, sitting in the crowd with her husband, Todd, and Bristol’s son, Tripp, who is adorably covering his ears.

Carrie Ann seems shocked by the performance, and declares Bristol “most improved,” and says she was confident and sassy. Len agrees she had a great deal of confidence, and it’s a great improvement from her last time on the show, though she still has to work on her technique.

Scores: 6.5, 6.5, 6.5 for a total of 19 points.

Here is a backstage photo with comment that Governor Palin posted on her Facebook page afterwards:

Tripp surprised his mama backstage at DWTS tonight. You can vote for Bristol by calling 800-868-3409. AT&T subscribers can text the word VOTE to 3409. You can also vote online at the DWTS website and via Facebook.

Gov. Palin: Hope you’ll tune in to DWTS tonight and vote for Bristol and Mark!

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 24, 2012

Governor Palin posted this photo and comment on Facebook today:

Bristol goes from joining Willow, Todd and buddies looking to fill the freezer a few weeks ago in the wilds of Alaska to the wilds of LA on the dance floor tonight! I know how many worries we all have about the challenges facing us today, but in the midst of it all I’m really looking forward to taking time to just be a proud mom and cheer on Bristol as she does her thing on “Dancing With the Stars” tonight! It’s good to take a break from the heavy stuff and recharge your batteries with something like this uplifting, energetic, and positive competition. If you tune in tonight (at 8/7c on ABC), I hope you’ll vote for Bristol & Mark (online at the DWTS website, by calling 800-868-3409, and for AT&T subscribers by texting the word VOTE to 3409), and I sincerely hope you have an enjoyable evening.

Paparazzi were waiting as the DWTS contestants arrived for Sunday rehearsals yesterday.  Bristol is at 1:34 minutes.

Here is a Behind The Scenes photo of Bristol from the DWTS website:

Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas DWTS All-Stars Photos Released by ABC Today

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 23, 2012

Earlier today, ABC released promo photos of several DWTS All-Star pairs, among them these photos of Bristol and Mark.   Photos of additional pairs can be found here,  here, and here.

Allison Corneau at US Weekly writes:

They’re all dressed up and ready to hit the dance floor!

Bristol Palin, Pamela Anderson, Melissa Rycroft and nine other celebs are set to return to Dancing With the Stars for its first-ever All-Star season next month, and on Thursday, ABC provided a first glimpse of the stars in costume with their professional partners.


“[Critics] are going to be talking about us either way. I might as well be doing something enjoyable and fun and with a good group of people, and that’s why I’m doing it,” Palin said of her motivation to return to the ballroom in her quest to finally take home the mirrorball trophy.

“I won’t be dancing in a monkey suit, but it’s going to be awesome,” she hints of her second time on the dance floor.

Joining Palin, Anderson and Rycroft for Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars will be Helio Castroneves, Joey Fatone, Shawn Johnson, Drew Lachey, Gilles Marini, Kelly Monaco, Apollo Ohno and Emmitt Smith. Competing for the final, 13th slot, to be determined by viewers are Sabrina Bryan, Kyle Massey and Carson Kressley.

The Palins, Margaret Cho and the Leftiverse

Posted by joshpainter on December 5, 2010

“My mom did not ‘force’ me to go on DWTS”
Leftists live in an alternate universe where lies and rumors become their “truth,” and the laws of nature and even common sense don’t apply as they do in the real universe. In the liberal “leftiverse,” rumors, especially those about All Things Palin, are accepted as Gospel, while the Gospels themselves are questioned by many of the leftiverse’s inhabitants. For example, “dirt” on Sarah Palin and her family in the leftiverse media water cooler doesn’t settle at the bottom; it percolates very rapidly to the top. It begins on gossip websites and moonbat blogs, both of which are fueled by Haterade, and is quickly sucked upwards to major media outlets such as CBS and CNN.

Case in point: The gossip websites were all abuzz last week with a rumor that Bristol’s onetime fellow DWTS contestant Margaret Cho had repeated on her personal blog, and in no time at all the rumor had become “Marquee” news at CNN:

“I heard from someone who really should know (really should seriously know the dirt really really) that the only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do it,” Cho wrote on her blog on November 29.

“Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly (in the circles that I heard it from) for not winning the election, and so she told Bristol she ‘owed’ it to her to do DWTS so that ‘America would fall in love with her again’ and make it possible for Sarah Palin to run in 2012 with America behind her all the way.”

To sum things up, Cho explained, “Instead of being supposedly ‘handicapped’ by the presence of her teen mom daughter, now Bristol is going to be an ‘asset’ – a celebrity beloved for her dancing.”


“Keep in mind there are other forces at work here and it’s not just for the love of dance,” she noted, adding, “Now I am scared I am going to wake up with a decapitated moose head in my bed.”

There was just one major problem with this rumor: It wasn’t true. But in the leftiverse, facts are not checked for veracity, and no one who passed this lie on bothered to ask Bristol — not Cho, not the gossip reporters, not the lamestream major media outlets. The lie became a rumor, and the rumor became “news.” This is commonplace in the leftiverse, the same alternate reality in which Tina Fey’s joke that “Sarah Palin could see Russia from her house” was attributed to Gov. Palin herself, not the SNL character.

Bristol Palin set the record straight on Facebook late Saturday night:

I was somewhat taken aback to read about me in a blog by my friend and fellow contestant, Margaret Cho. In a post she called “Pistol Whipped” she wrote that “the only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do it. Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly . . . for not winning the election,and so she told Bristol she “owed” it to her to do DWTS . . . .” Let me shamelessly steal from Saturday Night Live: “Really, Margaret? Really?”

I will give my friend credit for creativity, and extra points for getting so many “facts” wrong in so few sentences. Let me be blunt: my mom did not “force” me to go on DWTS. She did not ask me either. The show approached me. I thought about it. I made the decision. After first worrying for me in terms of being exposed to those who hate us for what we believe in, both my mom and my dad became my number one supporters. Anyone who watched the show could tell I performed better, and I felt better about myself, when they were in the audience. I wanted to make them both proud, but politics had nothing to do with it. Loving my parents had everything to do with it.

It saddens me that people would think that my mom would “blame” me for anything that occurred in the 2008 election–much less “harshly” and “openly.” I think that canard (there, I said it again), has been floating around since then also. I will set the record straight, though my mom already did in her bestselling book “Going Rogue”; there were a number of reasons President Obama won in 2008, but the primary reason was that the economy was starting to falter and the majority of voters thought Obama could do a better job than my mom and John McCain. It turns out, two years later, the majority of voters were wrong, but we can talk about that another time. The point is, I seriously doubt anyone who considers herself a student of American politics truly believes I impacted even one vote in that election.

There you have it. Why do I want to set the record straight? Because it is this type of hurtful and false narrative that people promote to make my mom look bad. For 20 years my mom had my back–and for the rest of my life I will have hers.

To my friend Margaret Cho, if you ever have a question, call me girlfriend. Don’t ever rely on “sources” who claim to know me or my family. You will be taken every time.


Bristol has learned, as her mom learned from the School of Slings and Arrows, to quickly shoot down these lies from the leftiverse before they take hold in the real one. If Cho, who has been viciously attacking Bristol’s mom since long before she met The Pistol on DWTS, had only shown her new friend Bristol the consideration and common decency any real friend has for another by going to the 20-year-old to check out the rumor before going public with it on her blog, Bristol’s Facebook post would not have been necessary. But in the leftiverse politics trumps all, even friendship.  Cho is the kind of “friend” that will run a sword through Bristol to try to get to Sarah, her intended target. With friends like these, who needs enemies?
