Bristol Palin Excited to Move Those Hips

by at . Comments

Bristol Palin was good at moving her hips when Levi Johnston was around - if you know what we're talkin' about! - but how will she fare on Dancing With the Stars?

The 19-year-old, a member of the new Dancing With the Stars cast unveiled last night, says her challenge will be "showing my personality and moving my hips!"

THG NOTE: We were talkin' about those hips clamped down on Levi's Johnston! Then, nine months later, helping to bear his offspring! Okay, moving on now.

Bristol: Dancer With the Stars

As for Bristol Palin signed on for DWTS? [Photo:]

"I just wanted to do it because it's so fun," Bristol said. "It's so positive and it's a good competition. I wanted to step outside my comfort zone and have a good time."

Her mom, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, was supportive as well: "She's always been my No. 1 fan. Of course, she'll be here [cheering me on]."

But Sarah won't baby-sit her grandson Tripp, 19 months, while Bristol Palin is rehearsing. Said Bristol, "She'll be traveling the world doing speeches and stuff."

Maybe Levi Johnston is available every Monday night from 8-10?

As for Bristol's top competition on the program, she views Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey and singer Brandy as two of the favorites, for obvious reasons.

"They both have some dance experience," she said. "But everyone's so good and I'm so happy to be a part of it ... The pro athletes are pretty cool too."

As for those Dancing With the Stars costumes, Bristol says: "We did our title shoot today, so I got all glammed up, but I'm definitely excited to wear all those. I know that mine will be the most conservative. I will be the most dressed."

"That's how I am and that's how I want to dress," the youngster adds. "But it'll be good, all the rhinestones and spray tans, that will be fun."

What do you think? Does Bristol's appearance offer a good example of a single mom doing whatever it takes to provide for her child, or a negative example of a person rewarded with fame and fortune for having a child out of wedlock?

Tell us: Is Bristol going on DWTS right or wrong?


Well, Ive never watched Dancing With The Stars, and with a little twit like Bristol, I definitly dont plan on watching it anytime soon. Just like her idiodit, media whore mother. The apple didnt fall far, as they say.


I think she should do what she wants. She is her own person and shouldnt be punished for her mothers doings. If this is something she wants to do then more power to her! There are a lot of haters out there and thats ok, but at least she is doing something with her life. I think its a positive thing.


Like mother like daughter. Total media whores. Sarah Palin will support her daughter's quest into show biz and in the same breath scoff at a woman in Alaska for being a teacher (if you haven't seen this video - look it up!). This family needs to get their priorities straight.


who the heck cares about bristol, she,s only riding her moms shirt tail to see how much money she can pocket, her mother bailed out on the people of alaska, mainy in part because she made a fool of herself in the presidential race, 80% of the people in this country saids she not qaulified to be pres. she only went after the money, and by the way just who is raising tripp its not bristol otherwise she woudnt have so much time to spend with her mother


Palin fan, I am not, but I admire any young mother willing to embarrass herself on DWTS rather than to be out there stripping claiming that they are working their way through college to provide for their child.
The one drawback is Sarah is not going to be able to sit in the audience and keep quiet "if" the judge or judges criticize her daughter's steps. Everyone of the DWTS performers get a low grade at one time or another,but I do not believe that Sarah is going to be able to observe and enjoy the show without it being all about Bristol. Hopefully, Sarah will be able to take off her "governor's cap" and enjoy DWTS like the rest of the audience. Stay tuned!!


Anyone that believes that Bristol (who names their kid Bristol?) Palin is going on this hit show just to have fun is as naive as anyone that actually believes the Tea Party is NOT a Satanic cult out to destroy the world. PS - Her reason for being on the show is so that her mother can show her beak on camera while sitting in the audience.

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
