    I think Bristol and Sarah will say things just for money. I remember how Bristol went against abstinence and totally did a flip flop and said she didn't say any of that stuff, then she started getting a paycheck from Candies to promote abstinence. I guess that organization was so upset to see her going against conservative principles, that they bought her opinion.

    Riveting Television. One thing is for sure. she just made herself fair game. Sad.

    Can someone please define for me "fair game", who is and who isn't "fair game" and why? Thanks.

    I'd watch. I loved the Sarah Palin's Alaska reality series. It was like visiting their beautiful state and getting to know acquaintances better with the aid of technology.

    Let's be honest about it. Gov. Palin and now her daughter make their money through notoriety. IMHO having a reality TV show is an honest living, lucrative and gives them name recognition and/or reinforces the following they already have to advocate for issues important to them outside of the TV shows. Good for them. In Bristol's case, this is her second realty show as she was also a popular contestant on ABC's Dancing with The Stars last year if that counts.

    Just got around to reading through all 19 pages. I think you guys are waaaay too harsh on Bristol. As I recall she became pregnant at best as a result emotional exploitation by someone she adored. At worst, she submitted to peer pressure giving into underage drinking, he got her drunk, took advantage of her while she was unconscious which led of her becoming sexually active and the rest is history. Because of what IMHO can only be described as hostility driven by political motives she was vilified for sharing the details of her relationship leading her to publicly exonerate him for any wrong doing taking full responsibility for the consequences of her adolescent behavior herself. I think he should have been prosecuted but I wasn't there and that's just my opinion. Nevertheless, if you ask me she's a good girl who let her emotions override sound judgement.

    I caught bits a pieces of last night show. It seems like the theme is she made poor choices and has to live with the consequences. Life isn't over but its not easy either. Families can come together and be a strength to each other when in need. It seemed to give hope to young girls in similar situations and/or to encourage them not give into the pressure she gave into. She came across as intelligent, responsible, a great mom and yes beautiful.

    I find it somewhat humorous that you'd use the adjective "responsible" when it comes to an unwed teenaged mother.

    We'll agree to disagree.

    Based not upon her teenaged years but today.

    Wow you can change gears quickly. You start off the thread announcing her show and say "sad".


    Then turn on a dime and the venom flows. So I'm guessing you weren't all that "sad", yes?

    Perhaps not.

    I don't watch reality shows. Have never watched "Survivor" or "Big Brother" or "American Idol" or "Dancing with the Used-To's and Wannabes." Or "Storage Wars" or "Monsters In-Law" or "Intervention." Do you, any of you?

    If so, then explain why Bristol Palin's trying to make money is any different than anybody else who participates or watches crap like this.

    Pretty much. But I do have minor experience with being "spotlighted" in public, and so I really can see, although I did not make this decision lifelong myself, deciding to go for the money if you're going to be spotlighted whether you like it or not just because of your parents.
