Bristol Palin’s Abstinence PSA Is Pointless, Insulting & Hypocritical


Bristol Palin has a message — teen pregnancy is only a blessing from God if you come from a privileged political family. If you’re one of the poors, having a baby at 16 will just make your hair ratty! So don’t do what Bristol did and have sex before marriage, because your mom isn’t Sarah Palin. Or something.

Bristol Palin To Guest Star On “The Secret Life Of The American Teenager”

In the most appropriate collaboration since “Tool Academy” with Dave & Busters, Bristol Palin has signed on to guest star on ABC Family’s “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.” I haven’t figured out what the secret is yet, but I’m guessing it is about to have something to do with retroactive abstinence! Bristol will be playing herself in an upcoming episode, as a teen mom friend of Amy’s. I guess they will be bonding about how awesome not having sex is and how it’s super effective for preventing pregnancy. Bristol has said about her new gig, “I am thrilled to be on this show and to be part of a program that educates teens and young adults about the consequences of teen pregnancy. Regardless of what I did personally, I just think that abstinence is the only … 100 percent foolproof way to prevent pregnancy. It’s a hard choice, but it’s the safest choice and it’s the best choice.” Foolproof is such a funny word. It will be interesting to see whether a real-life teen mom can lend insight to our protagonist. And maybe baby Tripp will also make his acting debut? [ABC News] Keep reading »

Andrea Friedman, “Family Guy” Down Syndrome Actress, Issues The Palins A Kick In The Pants

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her daughter, Bristol Palin, were in the headlines again this week, railing against Sunday’s episode of “Family Guy” featuring a character with special needs. In the episode “Extra Large Medium,” the elder son, Chris, goes out on a date with Ellen, a mentally handicapped woman who tells him, “My dad’s an accountant and my mom’s the former governor of Alaska” — an obvious reference to Palin’s son, Trig, who has Down syndrome. The Palins, of course, interpreted it as such; both Bristol and Sarah took to the ex-governor’s Facebook page, where Bristol wrote, “If the writers of a particularly pathetic cartoon show thought they were being clever in mocking my brother and my family yesterday, they failed. All they proved is that they’re heartless jerks.” Boom boom pow!

And yet … Andrea Friedman, the 39-year-old actress with Down syndrome who read the voiceover for Ellen on the “Family Guy” episode in question, said peeps needs to chill. In an interview yesterday with The New York Times, Friedman spoke out and said, “It’s not really an insult. I was doing my role, I’m an actor. … I was laughing at it.” She added, “[I turned on the TV and] I saw Sarah Palin with her son Trig. I’m like, ‘I’m not Trig. This is my life.’ I was making fun of Sarah Palin, but not her son.” Keep reading »

The Palins Won’t Be Tivoing “Family Guy” Anymore

Something very unusual is about to happen here. I’m about to agree with Sarah Palin. On last night’s episode of “Family Guy,” Chris goes out with a mentally handicapped woman. In describing her life, this girl says, “My mom’s the former governor of Alaska,” a pretty obvious allusion to Sarah’s son, Trig. Sarah has responded to the episode on Facebook. Or, err, let Bristol respond? Sarah says, “People are asking me to comment on yesterday’s Fox show that felt like another kick in the gut. Bristol was one who asked what I thought of the show that mocked her baby brother, Trig (and/or others with special needs), in an episode yesterday. Instead of answering, I asked her what she thought. Here is her conscientious reply, which is a much more restrained and gracious statement than I want to make.”

Here’s what Bristol had to say… Keep reading »

Baby Talk With Sarah And Bristol Palin

If you happen to pass a newsstand today and venture by a stack of In Touch magazines, do not worry—no one stole the Palins’ film from a Sears Portrait Studio. No, Sarah and Bristol, along with babies Trig and Tripp, posed for the cutesy cover shot, in which Tripp sticks his fingers in little Trig’s ear. They also invited a reporter into their home for an exclusive interview. Alas, the story is mostly a puff piece where Bristol says groundbreaking things like, “We’re both moms at the same time. It has brought us closer together.” (Side note: If your mom had a baby a year before you and named him “Trig,” wouldn’t you probably have picked something not quite as close as “Tripp”?)

Bristol Palin Gets A Big Girl Job, Opening Her Own PR Firm

Perhaps Bristol Palin was upset that everyone from Tiger Woods‘ mistresses to the woman accusing Shaquille O’Neal of harassment was running to spin doctress Gloria Allred for their scandal-busting needs. Because now Bristol is starting her own public relations and lobbying firm. Rachel Maddow dug deep to get the scoop on the new firm, which is called BSMP—short for Bristol Sharon Marie Palin. Bristol recently filed to incorporate the business, and it sure looks like it’s legit since the signature on the paperwork is a dead ringer for the tattoo of Bristol’s signature that Levi Johnston got on his finger. Bristol—who’s 19 and only has a high school diploma—already has her first client, the pro-abstinence Candie’s Foundation. She could start taking on new clients soon, or she could have gone through the legal rigamarole to save some tax money. I guess we’ll find out soon enough. [Media Bistro] Keep reading »
