Think teen baby mama Bristol Palin has it easy as the daughter of a famous politician and the ex-fake fiancee of a successful nude Playgirl model? Not so.
"[My parents] are there for support when I need it emotionally, but I'm on my own financially. I work an 8-to-5 job, five days a week," Palin told People.
"My parents help, but they're not at my disposal. That's a huge misconception."
So true. Poor Bristol Palin is like all other single mothers, getting herself up for tabloid cover shoots and Secret Life of the American Teenager cameos.
Bristol's mother, Sarah Palin, has earned millions since leaving office last July. But not a lot of that money is apparently going to buy diapers for Tripp.
"I'm doing it by myself," Bristol says. "I live by myself."
"I'm working to provide for [my son]. Financially, it's very difficult. I'd say the majority of any check I ever receive is going to Tripp. Child care is very expensive, formula is expensive, diapers are expensive – you don't think about that as a kid, at all."
You don't think about that when you're having unprotected sex with Levi Johnston apparently, either. Just saying ... does she really want credit for dealing with the consequences of her own actions and not being spoiled by her rich mom?
You have kids, your life becomes all about them - wow, stop the presses!
At least she and Levi are getting along better lately.
