Bristol Palin wants a reality show with her sister, wants to be like the Kardashians


Back when Bristol Palin debuted her new face earlier this year we heard that she was working on some kind of reality show with her fellow Dancing With The Stars competitor, Kyle Massey, and his brother. The plot was supposed to be Bristol moving to L.A. with the Massey brothers. The Bio channel even made an announcement that they were on board with the show and that it would air in the fall of 2011. Only nothing happened whatsoever with that show, and it never got off the ground. Well Bristol hasn’t given up her dream of becoming a reality star. She’s gunning for a Kardashian-type show centered around her life with her family and boyfriend. Bristol’s mom, the abrasive Sarah Palin, isn’t happy with putting her younger 17 year-old daughter, Willow, on television, but she can’t really object since she’s already shown her family on their own docu-reality show for TLC, Sarah Palin’s Alaska. Meanwhile Sarah’s husband Todd wants his own reality show about snowmobile racing. And of course Sarah is still gunning for more episodes of Sarah Palin’s Alaska, the first season of which concluded in January.

The Palin family is embroiled in a war over reality shows, with husband Todd and daughter Bristol blasting “Mama Grizzly” Sarah for promoting her program while failing to fully support their bids, sources tell The Enquirer.

“Sarah is getting flak from both Todd and from Bristol,” said an insider.

Todd’s proposed show about his snowmobile racing was shot down by both Discovery Communications and the A&E Network. And Bristol is struggling to reinvent her scrapped Bio channel reality show, this time under a Kardashian-style format featuring her boyfriend Gino Paoletti and her 17 year-old sister Willow.

“To Sarah’s credit, she helped pitch Todd’s show,” noted the insider. “But he’s still furious. He thinks she didn’t work hard enough because it wasn’t centered around her.

“And Bristol’s upset because Sarah wants to stay out of negotiations for her show. Sarah isn’t thrilled with Willow being involved. But Bristol believes the show will be more marketable with Willow – that they can be the next Kardashian sisters.”

Meanwhile, after Sarah announced in October that she wasn’t going to run for president, on Dec. 19 she hinted that she might. But sources charge it’s just a plot to raise her exposure as she seeks to bring back her own TLC reality show “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.”

I love how all of Sarah Palin’s family now feels entitled to their own reality shows. There are enough other fascinating reality shows about non-famous people with weird jobs. I truly enjoy Storage Wars on A&E, for instance, and that show is incredibly popular. A quick glance at A&E’s website shows they have a show called Parking Wars, which is about meter maids. I’m not sh*tting you. They also have Shipping Wars, about people who ship stuff, and American Hoggers, about people who catch wild hogs. On Discovery there’s American Chopper, American Guns, Moonshiners and Deadliest Catch. So some Palins are not going to compete, even with snowmobiles, fake hunting and lots of plastic surgery. The days of the Kardashians and the family reality show are hopefully grinding to a halt.

    Oh honey, that you even think you can build an empire like the Kardashians did…. That’s cute.

  2. SolitaryAngel says:

    Isn’t that sweet…but it’s WRONG!!!!

  3. Agnes says:

    Money grabbing famewhores. No wonder she’s trying to look like a budget version of the Katfaced family (that might be an oxymoron, though…). Besides them being just awful on every level, I have a special dislike for them since I lived in Alaska, so I might not be the most objective judge here. :)

  4. Daff says:

    What a sad thing to aspire to.

  5. J O'C says:

    She used to be so cute until she got that plastic surgery and ruined her face. Now she looks like a witch.

  6. debbiecdc says:

    So the Wasillabillies want more TV time. Another famewhore family that can’t get any real jobs. Just go the f away, the whole grifter clan & take your uptown cousins the Kuntdashians with you

  7. Darla says:

    Parking Wars is awesome!!

    If she wants to go to being considered brainless trash with absolutely no respect, she’s almost there. There is NOTHING good or admirable about this platstic faced little hypocrit.

  8. Justalark says:

    Whatever happened to Bristol’s plan to go to college and study broadcast journalism?

    Is that path to success too ________ ? (Select your adjective: difficult, anonymous, time-consuming, conventional, unglamorous, low paying, self-sacrificing, intellectually demanding) for this Kardashian wannabe?

  9. Laura says:

    Poor thing doesn’t realize that her face looks worse after she messed with it.

  10. Franny says:

    I find it disgusting that someone who wanted to be the VICE PRESIDENT of the USA (and was pretty close to being it) now wants to appear on reality television? Shows where her standards are. Stay in office, learn about the world, and do something good for your state while you are in position to do so. Don’t appear on another worthless TLC show.

    seriously, its gross.

    • Lisa says:

      Did you see the election night returns during the last POTUS election?…Palin was NEVER close to being VP (thank HEAVENS)…

      I remember YEARS ago when A&E first came on the air…when it truly reflected its name of “Arts & Entertainment”…now I look @ it, TLC and Discovery as…

      Well…our society is OBVIOUSLY getting EVERYTHING it deserves…

      SIGH…

      • Rio says:

        I fully admit that I watch “Intervention”, “Hoarders” (love Matt Paxton) and “Heavy”– I call it my “Feel Better About Yourself Monday Night Rock Block”, lol– but I remember a time when it took serious bribery on my mother’s part to get me to even sit in the same room when A&E was on. It only seemed to feature “Biography” and roughly 30,000 hours of Jane Austen adaptations.

        Of course I also remember when TLC was still called “The Learning Channel”. I feel old.

  11. lucy2 says:

    Glad no networks are buying this. The best thing for Bristol would be to quit trying to be famous, go back to school, and make a good life for her and her son.
    On a shallow note, when did she acquire Paris Hilton’s hook nose??? She looks totally different, and not in a good way.

    Franny, I tend to agree. Seems the ultimate goal is fame/money/power/self promotion, not doing anything good for anyone else.

  12. cerulean says:

    These Palin fools need to realize that they are over. Nobody cares.

    I love Storage Wars too. Regular people are much more entertaining than moneygrubbing grifters from the hinterlands.

  13. djork says:

    A reality show that starred the Palins should center on their hatred of non-whites, their desire for Alaska to secede from the US, their cruelty to animals, their abject ignorance and their desperate need for attention. THAT’S their reality.

    • Kelly says:

      And stupidity. And gall. Don’t forget that!

    • DesertRose says:

      While I agree with most of your comment djork, what do you mean by cruelty to animals? The hunting? Hunting for food, and yes, we saw the Palins’ freezer was full of IQFs from the butcher, is not cruel. Is the meat you eat somehow processed in a less cruel way? Doubtful. Probably it was feed hormone-filled grain, kept corralled in a small area, then put to death in an assembly line fashion. I have hunted, and my family also owns a ranch that produces USDA Prime beef. I am very familiar with the food chain, you should stop judging people who face the facts about what they eat and where it comes from. Sorry for the rant, it’s a hot-button issue for me.

  14. Kelly says:

    I used to watch Storage Wars, but the people (except Barry) are too annoying. I thought if I heard Dave’s “YUUUUUUP” as he tries to run up an auction one more time, I’d go mental. Parking Wars is an awesome show – the parking enforcement officers, in general, have a positive attitude, and many are quite zen. Which is great, as people go batshit crazy when their cars are towed.

    The difference between these shows, and celebutard “reality” shows, is that they’re about the interaction between real people (like the people who have a zillion outstanding tickets and a lapsed registration and still get mad when their car gets towed), which is unpredictable and interesting. However, shows that hinge on “personality” don’t work when said “personalities” are completely boring.

    Also, it’s fascinating that the entire family is trying to create a career out of Sarah Barracuda’s onetime failed bid for the White House. And the only interesting thing about Sarah is how little self-awareness she has (you betcha!).

  15. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    OMg i thought that was Ashley Tisdale for a second. The resemblance is crazy!

  16. taxi says:

    Enough Bristol. She did DWTS. There isn’t anything about her which is interesting enough to watch.

    She wasn’t properly parented during formative years & is now just pathetic.

    Her plastic surgery did not improve her looks, either.

  17. Darklady says:

    I thought the premise for this farce was that Bristol was moving to LA to live with the Masseys and do charitable work.

    Given that the Palins never do anything charitable without a profit motive, that seemed pretty fanciful… Literally.

    I mean, what kind of person needs to relocate to LA and be followed around by a camera crew before they’ll donate their time to charity?

    Ultimately, it sounds like everything depended on Tripp, because he’s the only Palin other than Trig who has a personality.

  18. Deb says:

    She needs to concentrate less on famewhoring and more on her child (or two children, if you believe the conspiracies regarding Trig).

  19. BerMan says:

    Oh my isn’t this the last 15 minutes for this young lady?(Go home young Palin saves the Turkeys from you moma :) I will like to see Rick Perry’s family on a reality show… that would be “educational” or just white noise background while I’m cooking… Bring it!

  20. samira677 says:

    Why do the Palins think everybody loves them? I haven’t watched or read their interviews but a lot of their soundbited are racist, homophobic, and stupid.

    I love Storage Wars. I hate the Texas version. It seemed like they went after characters. They seem too cheesy.

  21. GirlyGirl says:

    Sorry Bristol, Reality TV has all the idiots it needs right now.

    Call back later, don’t bother leaving a message…

  22. original kate says:

    bristol has the intelligence of a turtle and a face like a canned ham.

  23. CeeCee says:

    way to aspire. for gods sake, further your education, work for a charity, do some volunteering, make a difference and get your head outta your ass young girl!

  24. bettyrose says:

    I’d actually forgotten this girl existed before this post.

  25. JaneWonderfalls says:

    Well she’s ugly enough and has a shyte for brain mother, I say she’s already there!!! It amazes me how people really don’t even make an effort to have a talent anymore, but I blame the public partially because we make these people famous than rip them down inch by inch, that is my favorite part *evil laugh*

  26. whatevs says:

    bad bad idea.
    she looks like jlh a bit
