Bristol Palin Has No Acting Ambition

by at . Comments

Bristol Palin says her acting debut on last night's episode of The Secret Life of the American Teenager was probably her last venture into that career field.

But don't expect her to line up any more acting gigs in the future.

Asked if she wants to pursue an entertainment career after her debut effort, she says, "Not acting. I like doing speaking engagements and stuff like that."

"Right now I'm just focused on raising Tripp," Bristol Palin adds.


The 19-year-old mother of 1 1/2-year-old son Tripp, whose father Levi Johnston, says she was happy to film the episode of The Secret Life just the same.

She appears as a friend of Amy (Shailene Woodley) at a music program for teen moms in NYC: "I didn’t have many lines or anything like that," says Palin.

"I just hope that this show opens up a dialogue between parents and teens - and teens amongst themselves - about the consequences of teen pregnancy."

Is she discouraging or promoting teen pregnancy?


That show does show that it's okay to ask your parents for birth control. It uses the basis that one teenager made a mistake --don't do the same. but it does show a teen asking her dad for birthcontrol. And it shows other teens being open about sex with their parents. It also showcases the consequences of not being responsible. Of course the girls are pretty ---it's television. Don't you get dressed up to go out because you might be seen by many? They're made up and made cute because they're seen by millions.


Instead of having skinny, fashion savvy, good looking teenagers having children on the show how about they show kids what a condom is. Or better yet, teach teenagers that it's okay to ask your parents if you can go on birth control.

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.

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