Cancel your Tuesday night plans this summer. Lifetime’s new series, “Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp,” about former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol Palin, premieres June 19 at 10 p.m. And surely you don’t want to miss this reality show “showcasing Bristol’s journey growing into womanhood with her young son, Tripp,” per a press release from the network.
The 14 half-hour episodes will air two at a time, featuring “never-before-granted access to Bristol’s real-life experiences … as a single mother living under intense media scrutiny that comes from her lineage” (the press release worded this much better than we could). The show follows Bristol’s move from Wasilla, Alaska, to Los Angeles with Tripp (baby daddy is, of course, Levi Johnston, who didn’t even get an honorable mention in the release).
Will you watch the new series? Do you think anyone will dare mention Levi by name on the show? Can Sarah ever possibly run for office again after this?
