Bristol Palin Wants to Set an Example For Moms!

by at . Comments

Dancing With the Stars' Bristol Palin says she wants to set a good example on the hit program for all the moms out there. But is she doing the opposite?

The teen mom, who just broke off her second engagement with Levi Johnston, plans to balance motherhood and work, far away from home in Alaska.

“I’m not the first mom to participate on Dancing with the Stars [but] I want to set a good example for all of the amazing moms out there,” she said.

Bristol Palin: Setting a good example? [Photos:]

Of the difficult task ahead, the 19-year-old says that “Yes, we can balance work and family, and we can also take on a new and exciting challenge.”

Bristol Palin shares custody with Levi and confirmed that their son, Tripp, will be living with her in Los Angeles during her time on the ABC show.

Living in a new city with as a single mom of a toddler might intimidate some young moms, but Bristol says she’s able to embrace her fame fears:

“I’m excited! It feels great to step outside of my comfort zone. I look forward most to getting in the studio and working hard. I’m in good hands.”

Is she really setting a good example, or is ABC doing the reverse by effectively rewarding the child of a famous politician for having unprotected sex?

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


I thought that part of the agreement between Levi and Bristol was that she agreed she would not talk about Levi in a negative way. I guess she just doesn't understand the English language--like Mother, Like Daughter.


Bristol seems like a nice young lady! star or not - jake wasn't a star either! lol! a pilot and reality tv show! Bristol keep moving forward - she also seems like a good mom! I wish her the best!


posters here are judgmental and ignorant. just because she has a different political view, you picture her as bad. if you have moms that have to work to raise her children, or set aside schooling to find a job, then you are putting them down, too! whether you like it or not, she's now a celebrity. and for goodness sake, she got a job dancing and having fun. she may not win, i hope she does for the haters, but it is still clean fun. grow up people, mind your own business and be not too quick to judge.


She's got soundbites down almost as well as her mom


If you want to set a good example, go to college, get educated, and have a profession that adds to the well being of others.


I have been watching Dancing with the Stars for all of the 11 seasons and everyone on there has been a star. Bristol is not a star she is riding on her mother's coat tail. I am trying to figure out when did she become a star. This is a publicity stunt and I am still not voting for her stinking ass mom or her for that matter.


I'm so sick of hearing that she shouldn't be on there because she is a mom. Mom's work everyday but are they told they should be at home with their kids instead of working. NO! She is trying to support her child and I'm sure that her baby isn't by himself while she's dancing. On the other hand, no she's not a star but how many of the contestants on there are stars. But people will tune in for at least 1 person they like. I'm interested to see this season because not very many of them are known to dance.


Quit kidding yourself, Bristol, you are not a star. You are on the Show only because of your Mommy's power and celebrity status and money. You criticize Levi and say that he is a fame whore--but the fact is that you are even worse. You call People Magazine and US Magazines almost daily and try to get paid for releasing news about your dysfunctional family--and then spread lies just for the money. You are not a role model for pregnant teens--you are a joke and you only care about making money and getting your pictures in the tabloids. What a pathetic person you are--your baby deserves to have a mom-- not a media whore.
