Bristol Palin, 20, was on E! News last night to presumably promote her upcoming memoir, which is out this summer. Bristol and her two year-old Tripp gave E!’s Giuliana Rancic a tour of her new house in Maricopa, Arizona, which she paid $172k cash for and found online. The house was sparsely furnished without any pictures on the wall and just a few decorations, but it looked big and open. It has five bedrooms and two and half baths. Bristol talked about how good it feels to own a home at the age of 20 and said that Tripp calls her mom Sarah “nana” instead of “grandma.”
The room with the most decorations and personal touches was Bristol’s bedroom, which was in a tasteful contemporary style and included a photo on her nightstand of her boyfriend Gino after he’d just bagged a deer. I sh*t you not. She had some animal print furniture in the living room but it wasn’t overdone and didn’t look tacky or anything. Her house was pretty bare overall.
Bristol also has an elliptical machine in her house and she looked like she’d lost weight since Dancing with The Stars ended.
On E! she didn’t say much of interest and mostly showed the house, but they have more from Bristol on their website, including Bristol’s denial that she was disinvited from that speaking gig at Washington University after students objected. She also trashed Kathy Griffin, who made some pot shots at her expensee during a comedy show entertaining the troops last month.
On how she was never disinvited because she didn’t confirm
Luckily, in the meantime she has a lucrative career in speech-giving to fall back on. Er, when they’re not canceled, that is. And about that…
“I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? Is this a joke?’ ‘Cause I never committed to it. So I couldn’t be uninvited or cut off as a speaker. But it was really strange,” she said of her Washington University in St. Louis brouhaha. “It was definitely politically motivated…I never wanted to do it really.
“I feel like I am being pushed around, but I know that I am strong enough to handle it. So if they are going to pick on me, then so be it, but I just hope they don’t do that to other people.”
On how she felt about Kathy saying Bristol had gained weight on DWTS
“It didn’t [hurt my feelings] because it was coming from Kathy Griffin of all people, and I think it just shows her immaturity. I don’t think that stuff’s funny at all. Just very strange.”
Still, Bristol can not only take it, she can dish it as well.
“She has a weird hate for our family, just like her coming to Alaska and knocking on our front door. And it’s weird, also, that she would pick on my weight. She’s had botched liposuction procedures and stuff like that, so…It’s just weird that she would pick on something like that for another woman.”
Bristol went on to say that she’s never met Kathy and would like to keep it that way.
“I think she would just not be an enjoyable individual to be around at all.” Still, like any good Christian, Bristol said she would be willing to accept an apology should Griffin offer it.
“She’s never going to, but yes, I would accept it,” Bristol said.

So Bristol is saying that she never was really scheduled to do that gig, but that she was still being pushed around and picked on. Then she goes on to say that Kathy Griffin has it out for her family and that Kathy had botched lipo so she shouldn’t be talking smack about her. This is pretty much how her mom handles detractors too.
According to E!, Bristol has an offer to host a morning radio show in Arizona.
Here’s a segment that did not air on E! last night where Bristol talks about her new boyfriend. They’re going to air more of her interview tonight on E! News.
