The pair have been seen getting chummy in Bristol’s home state of AK and were spotted holding hands and heading out together in LA to Mint Bar on Oct.
With just one more night of competition to go before we find out if Bristol Palin wins the hideous-yet-coveted Mirror Ball Trophy, the executive producer of "Dancing with the Stars" insists the show's security system is catching and expunging all those votes for her that are being cast by people using bogus e-mail addresses to game the voting system. As far as what's going on with this Bristol thing, I do feel sorry for her but I will always be highly irritated at Mc Cain and his ilk for turning that family loose on an unsuspecting public.
On the other hand, the executive producer, Conrad Green also insists he's shocked - shocked - to discover the Palin family could have such a polarizing effect on the American public, over a simple little dance-competition show. DWTS is now teaching our kids that getting a F weekly will automatically give you a trophy.
In this case, it was on doctor's orders due to stress fractures.
Sarah Palin has popped up on the show to cheer her daughter, appearing in the audience one week and this week showing up during a rehearsal of what she was told was going to be a "scandalous" dance.
Would it be, mother Palin asked, "lapdancey scandalous?
Bristol and her hot new dance partner, Mark Ballas, seem to be generating a lot of heat, both on and off the set of the hit TV show. Bristol, in case you have been living under a rock for the past few years, is a single mom to 21-month-old son Tripp and daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
While early in the season, judges may have been nicer to her because of her inexperience in the entertainment world, it's been the viewer votes that have saved Bristol in recent weeks, and there is no secret that there is a campaign out there of Sarah Palin fans saving her.
There has been a long Republican voting tradition on the show, dating back to season three, which began ominously with Tucker Carlson first to be eliminated, and included country singer Sara Evans, who had GOP operatives working on her behalf.
The country singer, he said, "has been a strong supporter of the Republican Party and represents good American values in the media." Citing competition that year from "ultra liberal talk show host Jerry Springer," De Lay said, "We need to send a message to Hollywood and the media that smut has no place on television by supporting good people like Sara Evans."Actually smut was cited in the ugly divorce case that caused Evans, in a surprise, to remove herself from the competition midseason.
De Lay himself went on the show in season nine and danced three weeks before, like Evans, taking himself out of the competition.
And Bristol's mom, Sarah, last week tried to capitalize on the size of her daughter's audience to boost ratings for her own, far less popular reality series, TLC's "Sarah Palin's Alaska." These are just the latest headlines in our ongoing coverage of "Dancing with the Stars": Decision 2010: America at a Crossroads: The Final Countdown. Like mother like daughter: Both Palins expect a reward for being retarded in their respective events. The problem I have with the show is one that I have had since the show started letting the viewers call in votes, and that is many viewers do not vote based to talent and I do not think that is fair to the contestants.
