Bristol Palin to ‘Dance’ again, since media won’t leave her alone

The Palins are creeping up on the Kardashians in their campaign to become the First Family of reality TV with news Friday that Bristol Palin had been cast in ABC’s fall all-star edition of “Dancing with the Stars.”

“I don’t think it’s our business,” Bristol said of her family, when one TV critic asked about the Palin family reality-TV dynasty.

“I just think you guys are going to be talking about us either way, so we might as well be doing something enjoyable and fun.”

“You haven’t gone Full Kardashian,” “Dancing” host Tom Bergeron joked, jumping in.

“No — not at all,” Bristol answered seriously.

possible!

I know have them do a Reality show about Alaska in Alaska! They can ride snow machines and build bridges to no where, make lots of babies with stoopid names, and they
can forget all about D.C. which would be far far away.

You can't tell me they couldn't find 100 people who wouldn't be better contestants.

Good grief.

She was a lousy dancer the first time around...don't know why they didn't bring
back contestants who placed 2nd/3rd in other seasons. All-Stars? Geesh,
a person with notoriety isn't necessarily a 'star'.
