For reasons unknown, Lifetime has ordered 10 episodes of Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp, a half-hour documentary series about Sarah Palin’s eldest daughter.
Bristol Palin, for those unfamiliar, is best known for being:
- The daughter of former V.P. candidate Sarah Palin
- Knocked up by boyfriend Levi Johnston in 2008
Since giving birth to son Tripp, she’s appeared on DWTS, fought with Levi a lot and published a best-selling book, Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far.
Whoever ghosted that must’ve done a bang-up job.
“From the moment she was thrust into the public eye, Bristol and her son have been the subjects of a huge amount of curiosity and misunderstanding,” said Rob Sharenow, the executive V.P., Programming of Lifetime Networks, in a statement.
The show will “provide an exclusive, rare glimpse into Bristol Palin’s real life as a young, single mother forging her own way in the world while living under the bright, constant spotlight as a member of one of America’s highest-profile families.”
“This show will reveal the real Bristol Palin and her journey as a daughter, a mother and a young woman trying to make her way in this world.”
Life’s a Tripp is scheduled to air sometime this year.
