Sarah Palin Says Husband Todd Turned Down 'Dancing With the Stars'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 7th 2010 7:10AM

Todd and Sarah PalinWas Bristol the second choice candidate for dancing stardom in the Palin household?

CNN.com reports that at a speaking engagement in Houston, Texas Tuesday, Sarah Palin let slip that producers had wanted her husband Todd to be a contestant on the show, but she kept mum on whether he was asked before Bristol was.

"They wanted Todd to be on the show ... I think that would have been cool to see, too. But here Bristol is, out of her comfort zone, doing something all new."

So would Bristol's mom ever be a contestant on 'Dancing With the Stars'?



When asked by an audience member if she would ever join the cast, Palin laughed and said she would have to translate her basketball skills to the dance floor. "They would have to let me dribble back and forth and maybe pivot and do a jump shot or something as part of the routine," she said. "In fact, when Bristol said, 'I don't know how to dance,' I told her, just think of it as learning some basketball plays."

Bristol Palin is a contestant on the current season of 'Dancing With the Stars,' and although she and partner Mark Ballas have received low marks so far from the show's judges, they've been saved from elimination by viewers' votes. Sarah Palin defended Bristol's laid-back style and said she's embracing her new hobby: "She is way out of her element, out of her comfort zone, and she is the first to admit that."

both palins....todd and bristol are free loaders living off sarah. the whole family is a farse. boo to dancing with the stars for allowing this to happen. bristol is a unwed mother and todd is a dad that should be acting like the head of the household instead of hiding behind ma ma bear.

Beyond a doubt you have limited education, it shows.
Your spelling is 3rd grade level son, you need to work on that.
Be nice or no one will play with you.

Hardly poor Sweetie, and I had a feeling you had limited education, it shows.
Your emails show you are a boy wearing men's shoes in thought and deeds.
Your little stone throwing didn't ding my armor, I am secure in who I am. Obviously, you are not.
As you grow up, things will be clearer to you.
P.S. Tell Mommy you are online again.

I wasn't beating down the Palins, and I was surely not putting down beautiful Bristol. I reread my comment and I wasn't saying that the "Palins" were imorally unfit. Matter of fact, I like and respect Sarah Palin as a woman. All I was saying is that in the beginning the show was supposed to have "stars" in it and seems anyone can get to dance on that show.
I, like many people on here, aren't hating them, it's just that they should not be labeled as a "STAR."

You are one sad and lonely fella we can tell, my heart goes out to you. Empty heart, empty head.
Since YOU brought up God, I suppose YOU could try that route, if ANY ONE person needs help, you are it.
No I am not a born again Christian, but unlike you, far more richer than you will ever be judging from your posts.
Man up son, good luck with your future.
I actually do care what happens to you, just don't like your childish mouth.
TRY to be nice, work less on being hateful.

DEO you goofy son of a gun.
Obviously you do not know anything about Palins, even their names.
I am sure you know white trash when you see it.
Just like we do when we read anything from Catch 22.
Have a little pride son, you cheapen yourself with such childish drool.
Come on you can do it, act like a big boy.

Boy!!! It's easy to pick the jealous democrats on this board,that's what democrats do!! Are you afraid the Republicans will cut off your welfare and Government food cupons? Put good people down and try to intimidate them and their voters with their lies .My dear, it won't work. She's doing more to get her choices elected than anyone else and she has been very successfulso far in the primaries and instatustics. Some of you people on this board are just downright mean.If your candidates can't win on their own merits, don't try to destroy everyone else's reputation. TERI= You are so negative.I'll bet every man in town knows you. Do you have a single friend? Did you know that Sarah Palin can sue you for calling her a media W#####? That is unless you can prove it and I know Darn well you can't.VICKY, surely you don't think Todd Palin does the house work. They are millionaires. They have maids and nannies for their children. What a dumb statement.
