It's only been two months since Bristol Palin joined the cast of Teen Mom: OG, but it seems the daughter of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is already looking to move on from the show.
We suppose it shouldn't come as a huge shock that Bristol doesn't feel much in the way of loyalty toward her employers, given that her mother just up and quit being in charge of a whole ginormous state in the middle of a term.
It seems the apple really didn't fall far from the tree in this case, and like her famous mom, Bristol believes she's destined for TV mega-stardom.
Of course, it's anyone's guess as to why she thinks that, as thus far audiences have been as indifferent toward Bristol as they are toward Sarah.
The Palins seem to have a distorted view of just how fascinating the rest of the world finds them, and in Bristol's case, that egomania is resulting in some intense conflicts with her Teen Mom bosses and co-stars ...
Back In Action
After spending some time away from the spotlight, Bristol is returning to public life in a huge way -- with a starring role on one of TV's most popular reality shows.
Big Shoes to Fill
When the time came to replace Farrah Abraham, TMOG producers reportedly felt pressured to do something big.
Times Have Changed
The original girls (the OGs, if you will) were unknowns when the show started, but now they're full-blown stars with millions of social media followers. Unless the new additions to the case existed on a similar plane of popularity, they would likely be viewed as disappointments.
So it was that Morgan J. Freeman and company focused on two established talents -- The Challenge star Cheyenne Floyd, and Bristol Palin, who was once the most famous teen mom in the country.
Big Bucks Bristol
Production insiders say Bristol is already being paid more than any of her co-stars, and it looks as thought the investment is not paying off for producers.
A Little Late
What the top brass at MTV failed to consider is that Bristol's fame peaked ten years ago, a time when much of the current TMOG audience was in elementary school, and thus, generally indifferent toward matters of national politics.
A Disappointing Response
As a result, viewers aren't as mad with anticipation for the upcoming season of Teen Mom OG as producers had hoped they would be.
The Palin Ego
By all accounts, the decision to add Bristol to the cast is shaping up to be a disastrous miscalculation on the showrunners' part. But it seems Bristol doesn't see it that way ...
Too Big For Her Britches?
According to an anonymous source who spoke with the website Crazy Days and Nights, Bristol imagines herself only doing one season of TMOG before moving on to bigger and better things.
The information was originally posted as a piece of "blind item" gossip, but CDAN later revealed (or at least speculated) that the diva in question was Bristol.
Wonder Who That Could Be ...
"This former A- list reality star who probably has A list name recognition and is not the most famous person in her family is already badgering producers of this long time franchise to have her own show," the post begins.
A Seasoned Vet
It may seem strange to think of Bristol of as a reality star, but in addition to competing on Dancing With the Stars, she's starred in two series of her own, as well as one that was based on her family.
Many Have Tried ...
"She doesn't want to share the spotlight beyond this season," the source continues. "So many others have asked and all have been turned down. She is probably going to get it though which is going to cause some epic words for a week."
So Bristol's not the first Teen Mom to try and land her own series? We wonder who these others might have been ...
The source points out that the other moms will NOT be happy if the network decides to give Bristol her own show ... but ultimately, their hands are tied.
"The people shouting out the words will realize they would have to get a real job if they lost the television job and will do what they do every season," the insider claims.
Trial By Fire
So we suppose this season can be viewed as a sort of trial run for Bristol. If she proves to be wildly popular, she'll soon have her own show.
Don't Count On It
Remember when we said Bristol starred in two previous reality shows? Yeah, they were both quickly canceled.
Back to Alaska
Given how indifferent TMOG fans seem to be about her casting, we're guessing Bristol will only appear on the show one season ... but not for the reasons she expects.
