Bristol Palin Reality Show Sneak Peek: I'm a Grounded, Normal Mom!

by at . Comments

Bristol Palin insists that viewers will see a more "normal" and "grounded" side of her on Lifetime's new reality show, Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp.

"I think I have tough skin and I know that God is on my side and my faith is everything to me," she said on Good Morning America earlier today.

"It's just the root of my life and my family's life and I think it will do well."

Robin Roberts' MDS revelation dominated the show, but the daughter of Sarah Palin sat down for a brief interview regarding her new program.

Bristol Palin says people will find her a lot more normal than they think when they see the show, premiering June 19, but she's no shrinking violet.

Sarah Palin's daughter, who gave birth to son Tripp with fake fiance Levi Johnston in 2008, says she has turned haters (like Bill Maher) into her motivators.

"When people talk poorly about me, I think it just gives me more motivation to want to do more and want to speak up even louder," she says.

"They're just not doing themselves well by doing that."

Bristol says Sarah Palin supports the show and trusts her judgment always. Little Tripp was also open to the idea of having cameras at home.

"Tripp didn't care if cameras were there or not," Bristol said. "He's still going to be rowdy, still going to be a little terror, but it was a lot of fun."
