Hey, remember when we were all crazy about Bristol Palin getting so far on “Dancing with the Stars”? Heady times, indeed. According to Margaret Cho, who was the third contestant eliminated this season, Bristol was only there because her mother forced her. Cho writes:
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. 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. [via E!]
Obviously, I have no way of verifying anything in that paragraph, but I can definitely attest to its hilarity. I like the idea of a parent not getting an open job and then blaming her child. “America loved me until YOU got pregnant, slut! Now DANCE! Dance, I say!” And then she laughed maniacally while flames spurted from the ground near her feet. True story.
