"Bristol Palin is the daughter of Sarah Palin. She got pregnant by accident just as her mom was added to the 2008 Republican ticket, at which point she pretended to be engaged to Levi Johnston, then attempted to cash in on her 15 minutes."
Lifetime's press release for Bristol Palin's new reality show COULD say that, and it wouldn't be incorrect, but alas, their bio is a bit different.
Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp (get it?!) premieres on June 19 with two (!) episodes. Here's Lifetime's explanation of why you should watch it:
"Viewers will get the chance to experience the life of one of America’s most famous young mothers, Bristol Palin, in the new docuseries ... showcasing Bristol’s journey growing into womanhood with her young son, Tripp."
"With never-before-granted access to Bristol’s real-life experiences, the show follows her everyday life as a single mother living under intense media scrutiny that comes from her lineage as the daughter of former Alaska Governor and V.P. candidate Sarah Palin."
"The series follows Bristol’s move from Wasilla to Los Angeles with Tripp and her sister Willow, and back to Alaska as she deals with parenting and disciplining her toddler without Tripp’s father."
"Giving viewers a unique look at the difficult decisions she makes for relationships, career and family, Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp will capture how true-to-life challenges test her resolve as she single-handedly writes the next chapter in her and Tripp’s life.""The former first daughter of Alaska, Bristol has become one of the country’s most high-profile teen mothers after the 2008 birth of Tripp."
"She has since dedicated her life to being a leading advocate for the prevention of teen pregnancy, working with such organizations as the Candie’s Foundation to educate people about the issue."
"In 2010, Bristol appeared on ABC’s hit reality competition series Dancing with the Stars, on which she placed in third. Most recently, she published her New York Times best-selling book, Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far, which candidly chronicles her public and personal life."
"Bristol also launched her own blog, where readers can get her views and opinions on various topics such as politics, pop culture and parenting."
Eh, our bio is still better. There's something to be said for brevity.
