“I’m certainly not doing it for the money, no! … Our family’s mantra is to live life vibrantly.”

– This is Sarah Palin‘s response to questions about her family’s embrace of television, which, if you are keeping count, started with “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” moved on to “Bristol Palin: Life’s A Tripp,” and will soon include Todd Palin in a new game show called “Stars Earn Stripes.” It’s all about living life vibrantly, everyone!

The Republican National Convention is August 27 to 30 in Tampa, Florida, and that means the area’s 40 strip clubs are scrambling to get ready. Strip club owners say that during the 2009 Super Bowl in Tampa, they doubled and tripled the number of dancers. What will happen for this GOP-palooza? Well, you’ll be happy to hear the Sarah Palin-lookalike stripper is booked. Another club has set up an online chatroom called the Club Cam where deep-pocketed Republicans can chat with strippers — for $4-a-minute, plus a $19.99 monthly membership — before their plane even lands in Tampa. Hey, what recession?!  [TampaBayOnline] [Photo: Getty]

Bristol's Bar Fight

I know you had better things to do last night than watch the premiere of “Bristol Palin: Life’s A Tripp,” so I watched Bristol’s reality show for you! The first 20 minutes or so tried somewhat admirably to depict her life as a young, single mom whose baby daddy is out of the picture — although I say “somewhat admirably” because most single moms probably don’t live in their own huge apartment and have piles of abstinence-only lecture fees to throw up in the air like Scrooge McDuck.

The part that really had me screaming at the TV? This video above where Bristol gets in a bar fight with some gay, sexist douchebag who called her mom a “whore” and then she calls her friend crying because this heckler was just upset about the family’s position on [snotty tone of voice] gay marriage. SO IRRATIONAL, right? It’s hard to feel bad for anyone here.

Life's A Tripp
Most Boring Reality Show Ever?

This is the Palin Conundrum: ignore them and hope they go away, or pay attention to the insipid things they do in order to mock them, thus contributing to their tick-bite hold on the public psyche.

The good news is that in Bristol Palin’s upcoming Lifetime reality show “Life’s A Tripp,” girlfriend may just encourage you to stop paying attention to her out of sheer apathy. The attempts at plot drama — paparazzi are taking photos! some man confronts Bristol in a bar about  her mom! — are the kinds of “drama” that would have ended up on the “Real Housewives” cutting room floor. The best part is when Bristol tells her sister “I wouldn’t wish this on anyone,” which is usually the feeling of someone who does a reality show. So grab yourself a double espresso and check out the series trailer. At least Tripp is cute? See an extended clip from the show, featuring mom Sarah, after the jump! [MyLifetime] Keep reading »

What the rest of us call “cohabitation,” or in some circles “living in sin,” the Palin family calls a “trial marriage.”

That’s exactly what abstinence-promoter Bristol Palin and her boyfriend, 21-year-old Gino Paoletti, are doing in a home she purchased in Wasilla. “Bristol and Gino are crazy about each other,” a source told The National Enquirer. “They’ve talked about getting married, but they think it’s a good idea to get a feel for living together before making it official.” They’ll be sleeping in separate bedrooms, I trust?   Keep reading »

Watch Video

I should probably be upfront and just make it clear from the get-go that I am not a Sarah Palin fan. But I watched her hosting gig on “The Today Show” anyway this morning, and found it to be about a 6 out of 10 on the pain scale. Still droppin’ her Gs? Check! Still crowing about the “lamestream media” (on a “lamestream media” show an hour before co-hosting that same “lamestream media” show)? Check! But it was not all bad. I found it refreshing that, during a discussion about Jessica Simpson’s pregnancy weight gain, Palin was the only person on the panel — which included “Today”‘s resident medical expert and that misogynist blowhard Donny Deutsch — that said how much weight a pregnant woman gains is none of our gosh darn business.

Still, the most cringe-worthy, and therefore most entertaining moment for me was when Palin started talkin’ family values with newly pregnant Tori Spelling. (Spelling, for the record, has an infant and two other children; she joked that her latest pregnancy is proof that you can conceive while breastfeeding.) Palin literally kind of fawned over her, praising her for “living life vibrantly” — whatever that means — and serving as a “good inspiration for others.” Anyway, it was an odd pairing. Watch a clip above!
