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.”

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.

Sarah Palin is exactly correct. Haters are gonna hate. Bristol's show is nothing like teen mom and is way more mature and just better. Teen mom is just an absolute joke. Its all of these inmature moms putting on drama for the cameras. Bristols show is real and excellent. She is a great person who is doing a great job rasing Tripp.

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
