Sarah Palin Shops A Show, Announces A New Book, And Goes Swag Crazy

Sarah Palin has been a busy lady in the past week. She tried her hand at stand-up on “The Today Show” on Monday, and today announced plans for a follow-up book to Going Rogue that will be a “celebration of American values and strengths.” Apparently, she is also shopping around a television show along with producer Mark Burnett, the dude behind shows like “Survivor” and “The Apprentice.” There are two different reports as to what exactly the show will be—the first source says it’s a “planet-Earth type look” at Alaska, while another (maybe jokingly) says, “it’s a sequel to ‘Commander in Chief,’” the show which made Geena Davis president.

But perhaps Palin’s most interesting move of the week? Hitting the Oscar gifting suites, with an entourage who “were like locusts,” according to one vendor.Supposedly, “she cleaned the place out,” said a source. “She insisted every person in her huge entourage get something, and there were assistants, nannies, security—insanity!” She and her crew grabbed hair products, jewelry, watches, headphones, robes, etc. Palin was supposed to donate her goodies to the Red Cross, for Haiti and Chile relief, but the word on the street is that she hasnt yet. Gone rogue, indeed. [Huffington Post]
