Bristol Palin in Harper's Bazaar: I'm a Hard Worker!

by at . Comments

There is nothing really controversial about Harper's Bazaar's new feature on Bristol Palin, but she does address sensitive, obvious issues such as teen pregnancy.

She admits "it was kind of humiliating" to get pregnant as a teen. "[I was thinking], 'Great, I'm 17 years old, I'm 40 pounds overweight with a big belly on me.'"

"All my friends are at school watching on the news. This kind of sucks. I thought I would be somewhere warm at college with my friends," the 19-year-old adds.

"But that was definitely not possible with having Tripp"

Bristol Palin, who is raising now 17-month-old Tripp as a single mom after ending her fake engagement from Levi Johnston, says life is not what she envisioned.

But that's also okay. Look what she got in return ...

"I love my baby more than anything. He's like a Gerber baby. He's the cutest baby in the whole world," she says. "I just want Tripp to be happy and healthy."

Bristol works as a medical assistant and serves as an ambassador to the Candie's Foundation - as an abstinence advocate, no less - to support her little son:

"I'm on my own. I'm really proud of it. I'm a hard worker. I don't have time for friends or anything. It's just like, crap, there is a hockey game tonight that I want to go to but I can't. Or, I do have to go to work today, because I've got bills to pay."

Sarah Palin says she's "very proud of her [daughter] for taking responsibility. It's not an easy road, but it's the right road. Decisions were made, and we can't unwind those decisions. Consequences are being dealt with. I'm sincerely proud of her."

Bristol says her parents had no idea she was sexually active with Levi Johnston, who says Sarah let them share a bedroom when he lived with the family.

"It's not like we sat down and were like, 'Alright, here's the birds and the bees,'" Bristol says. "Truly, my parents just assumed that I wasn't doing anything."

wow a baby... nice


No Bristol, you're a slut!


Truly Bristol's parents must have been incredibly stupid to think their daughter and Johnston, shacked up in the same room, were not sexually active. That did the Palin's think the teenagers were doing--playing monopoly?


People should boycott Candies or teen moms and others should protest Candies for making Bristol Palin the ambassador for teen pregnancy. She is not the norm, many girls do not have the advantages that Bristol does, and young women should ask for an ambassador that better represents them. Bristol is a farce.


Teen pregnancies are an epidemic in this country but it's not the teens fault, it's the parents, the teens are still children. Parents should start instilling what is expected from their daughters and sons right from the beginning. Also, parents should treat their children and instill in their children that they are better than everyone else on the planet, and always show them that they are. I noticed Sarah had to put her two cents worth in. She says that she is very proud of Bristol, ya, so she can put the blame on Bristol instead of telling the world that she f***** up as mother.


wait a minute: she wishes that she had been an unwed teen AT COLLEGE rather than AT HIGHSCHOOL? obviously, there are several retards in this family...


For-real-tho: I am very well educated. I believe you are using the word ignorance because your vocabulary is very limited. We simply do not share the same opinions, no big deal, so who is the ignorant one now?

Avatar are a looney is Bristol responsible for that poor girl that you are speaking of??? Was she the "blackmailer" of that naive mother you speak of??? Saying crazy shit like Bristol may "get these girls killed and their babies" is really out there....teen pregnancy and teen sexual activity is an ignored epidemic, anyone that sheds light and gives any teen insight into just a few of the sacrifices a teen parent may have to make, is encouraged by the masses...if you want to remain ignorant and keep naive girls in danger, that is your choice...stupid as it is; however, knowledge is power....toss that rock, that you are under, aside

Bristol Palin Quotes

Teenagers need to prevent pregnancy to begin with -- this isn't ideal. But I'm fortunate to have a supportive family, which is dealing with this together.

Bristol Palin

Tripp is so perfectly precious; we love him with all our hearts. I can't imagine life without him now.
