Get ready, lower 48! Bristol Palin had so much fun on “Dancing With the Stars” that she’s moving south for good… but Hollywood isn’t for her. The 20-year-old single mom just bought a five-bedroom house in Maricopa, Arizona for $172,000 in cash.
The mayor of Maricopa, Edward Farrell, gave Todd Palin a tour of the town earlier this year, according to People. Bristol chose a brown stucco house in the Cobblestone Farms development, which is a quiet neighborhood in a Phoenix suburb.
The move prompts rumors that Bristol may be interested in attending Arizona State University, which has an acclaimed broadcasting program. Since Bristol has expressed interest in pursuing a career in public speaking (we’re guessing about abstinence, proper Facebook insults, or the rock tango), ASU would be perfect for her.
TMZ talked to Zachary Ziebarth, the president of ASU’s College Republicans, and unsurprisingly, he’d be thrilled to have her. Also unsurprisingly, not everyone feels that way. “Facebook has already been going crazy with status updates of excitement, mixed feelings and non-acceptance,” he says.
