Sarah Palin Defends Bristol Reality Show as "Realistic," Slams Teen Mom

by at . Comments

With Bristol Palin under fire for the recent word choice of son Tripp on the latest episode of her Lifetime reality show, Fox News contributor Sarah Palin has come to her daughter's defense.

"Haters are going to hate," Palin told Salon at an NBC cocktail party on Tuesday, adding of Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp: “I think it’s clever, it’s absolutely real and I’m proud of the girls.”

Palin, Sarah

Despite the presence of cameras, her increased level of fame and the six-figure salary Bristol is banking from the series, Sarah Palin insists the program does not encourage young women to give birth.

"Her show today I think is very positive, it’s very realistic in terms of showing what single motherhood really is,” Palin said. “It’s not like the Teen Mom  — partyin’, woo-hoo! – fun, glamorizing single motherhood."'

We know we say this often, but: WHAT THE HECK IS SARAH PALIN TALKING ABOUT?

Has she ever seen Teen Mom? Debate all you want over whether these girls should be covering magazines and thrust into the spotlight, but that show on its own features nothing but crying children and ugly arguments with boyfriends/parents.

It also depicts teenagers who are struggling to hold jobs and attend classes while trying to raise children... without a stable, ultra wealthy family offering support.

Palin once said she is knowledgeable about foreign affairs because she can see Russia from Alaska. But this may be her most ridiculous statement yet.

@Don't even like Palin Palin said "you can actually see Russia, from land, here in Alaska." in an interview w/ Charlie Gibson. Katie Couric followed up on that statement w/ Palin, as Sarah cited the proximity of Russia to Alaska, as giving her foreign policy experience. It is true that SNL added "see Russia from my house"... because SNL is a Comedy show. However, Palin's statement and premise is nearly satire itself.

Sorry but sarah palin dont know what she is talking about first of all sarah palin I am sure helps her daughter unlike the girls from teen mom the only help they get is from themselves and even if there parents do help them I am sure they dont have the financial resources that bristol palins momma has.Sorry but thats just the truth of it and I think that bristol palin shouldnt have her own show because she has enough help from her momma

Of course she thinks her daughters life is tougher then the mothers on "teen mom". Then again she is also a grown woman the uses the phrase "Haters are gonna hate".

HOWEVER, SHE NEVER SAID THE STATEMENT ABOUT SEEING RUSSIA FROM ALASKA. I AM SICK OF SEEING THAT. TINA FEY, PORTRAYING HER, SAID IT ON SNL. If you disagree with her, fine, but research your damn facts.
