Bristol Palin vs. 'Teen Mom' Coming to a TV Near You (VIDEO)
Are you ready for the battle of the teen moms? We've finally got an airdate for Bristol Palin's much hyped reality show, Life's a Tripp. And you'll never guess the time slot Lifetime has chosen to show off how the former governor's daughter and her son life life. It's directly opposite the final season of MTV's reality series, Teen Mom.
They'll both air at 10 p.m. ET on Tuesdays, beginning in June (although the teen moms get a week headstart on the Wasilla native with a June 12 start). And of course they'll both be about young moms who were pregnant teenagers. Maybe those rumors of theBristol vs. Teen Mom stars feud aren't just rumors after all?
Geeshhhhhhhhhhh...I forgot to ad all of the story on!
The talk a few years ago was that Palin had the stars of Teen Mom barred from ever appearing on ABC'sDancing With the Stars, whether it was on the stage or just in the audience. Then came the news that it was all a bunch of hogwash because Tripp's mom and Teen Mom star Maci Bookout were "friends" who'd met in person at events meant to discourage teenagers from becoming parents.
Let's hope they're the kind of friends who can handle being pitted against one another in the same time slot talking the same subject matter!
This is a particularly hairy situation considering the season of Teen Mom that premieres June 12 is the last for Bookout and co-stars Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood, and Catelynn Lowell. The show has been cancelled while MTV continues its Teen Mom 2 series and preps for a Teen Mom 3 spin-off. This is their last chance to get their side of what it's like to be a teen mother out to the masses for whatever reason they chose to be a part of the show.
Now they'll have Palin's 14-episode series to battle for viewers. She's sure to have her mom's fans watching out of devotion and more than a few of her mom's detractors watching to gawk. What are the chances it will be a fair fight between the two sides?
Get a look at the sneak peek of Life's a Tripp, which begins airing on Lifetime on June 19, and tell us: which show will YOU be watching on Tuesday nights?
This looks like it will be fun to watch!! Her little guy is just BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!
I might watch it just to see what it will be all about. Her little boy is adorable though. This might not appeal to many unless Bristol is like a lot of single, young working mothers who really are having to work hard to have a good life for themselves and their children. I don't have doubts she is a good mother and I like what I see and hear of Bristol. Some are going to say though, why shouldn't different, single and young mothers be getting paid to show what their life is like, rotating perhaps, to help out those who really need some help, the ordinary and everyday good young mothers who really are struggling.
I have no doubt the liberals will take this one and run with it just like they did when she was on Dancing with the Stars!! She will get more flak over this again!! To that I say fine...I think it will only help her and her Mom with the exposure to stay in the news. Plus she is one that has been an advocate of telling young women to be responsible and not get PG and to stop and think before deciding to have sex. I think there are a lot of people who crave Sarah that will watch this because they love the Palin family.
