Bristol Palin's Reality Show: If It Happens, Here Are 5 Things We Want to See

Levi Johnston, Bristol PalinFirst off, congratulations are in order: Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are engaged! Also, Kathy Griffin you have my condolences now that Bristol has reclaimed her man.

But, with this engagement, there's more news -- well more just rumors at this point -- that have sparked more interest in the young couple.

According to several blogs, one of which Gawker picked up on, Bristol and Levi's engagement is just part one of a two-part media bonanza. The second part? A reality show. Yes, the Palins are pretty much the new Kardashians.

Bristol Palin's reality show is reportedly described as a series about young parenting, with a story arc that leads up to her wedding with Levi Johnston. Mama Sarah is set for some cameos, as is her young daughter Willow.

The new series is like the Palin family's 'Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami.' Does that make 'Sarah Palin's Alaska' the flagship equivalent to 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'? If so, a name change is in order, perhaps: 'Palling Around With the Palins.'

In any event, here are five things that would be a hoot to see on Bristol and Levi's rumored new show:

Kathy Griffin
Yes, Levi's "lover" should be given an audience with Bristol. Griffin would probably focus her attention on Levi, maybe helping him secure his finances since she's actually pretty smart with her own money. Or, she could help Bristol find the perfect wedding dress. Griffin would be great for some comedy and a little controversy. On second though, the world may explode if Griffin and the Palins came in contact. Perhaps Maggie, Griffin's Bill O'Reilly-loving mom, would be the better Griffin to guest.

Hilarious wildlife scenes
'The Osbournes' started it all with their lovable pets. The trend continues on shows like 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey,' and Alaska is filled wildlife. Cameras always seem to capture the perfect moment and editors have the keen eye of juxtaposing said moments within the everyday life of the main stars. The Palin's pets are ready for their close-up.

A feud
Yes, Bristol and/or Levi needs to get in a feud with somebody. It's a classic reality TV situation. Just look at both 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' and 'The Real Housewives of New York City.' The feuds on those two shows were ratings gold. Perhaps Levi could televise his struggles with his sister Mercede and her blog MercedeJohnston.com.

Levi and Sarah
Please, just give us a scene with Levi and Sarah alone together. They can just stare at each other blankly like the cast of 'The Hills,' but it needs to happen. Awkward tension should be felt by viewers across the universe.

The wedding
This is a major "Duh!" but Bristol and Levi's wedding could end up being the wedding of the century for the right wing. Think of the conservative republicans who would show up. Now, think of the liberal musician the Palins would pay to come sing at the wedding like Rush Limbaugh did with Elton John. Is Bono free?

Tell us: Would you watch a Bristol/Levi reality series?

If you have more than three brain cells this is no surprise.
As for this "anything for a buck" show, no matter what it is, or os not about...I sure won't be watching their family morals show.

The Palins are the white trash Kardashians.

Oh, hell no. No way in hell. TV's bad enough without that train wreck.
