Bristol Palin’s ‘Family’ Reality Show Official With Exploitatively Cute Promotional Photo
Bristol Palin may be busy calling out the president for his support of same-sex marriage, but the young mother has plenty of her own projects to promote this summer. Palin’s reality show on Lifetime is all set to air this coming June, and in the grand tradition of reality TV mothering, the 21-year-old doesn’t seem to be hesitant at all to place her 3-year-old son Tripp front and center.
As evidenced by this promotional photo, Palin’s adorable baby boy will be her co-star — and apparently title — in Bristol Palin: Life’s A Tripp. TV Guide reports that the 14-episode series will follow young Palin as she travels from Wasilla to Los Angeles where she accepts a job at a nonprofit — a scripted reality, I’m sure. Sarah Palin‘s daughter told the publication:
“My parents were skeptical at first,” she admits. “But they know I’m responsible. I won’t be getting drunk on TV. This isn’t Jersey Shore. It’s a family show.”
Bristol described herself as “game” when commencing production on the show and considers the platform an opportunity to show “how down-to-earth my family and I are” — direct PR translation for raking in dollar bills.
