Bristol Palin: 'I Don't Pay Much Attention' to 'Dancing With the Stars' Controversy (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Nov 22nd 2010 5:35PM
Bristol Palin has certainly been a lightning rod for controversy on this season of 'Dancing with the Stars.' Last week, she advanced to the finals ahead of Brandy, who was eliminated the night after notching a perfect score on the tango.

The twenty-year-old sat down with Greta van Susteren (weekdays, 10 PM ET on Fox News) -- long the go-to media outlet of the Palin family -- and discussed how she deals with all the controversies that have surrounded her improbably long run on 'DWTS.'

"I don't pay much attention to whatever is being thrown around out there," Bristol told Greta. "I'm more focused on doing well each week, more focused on learning these dances than the controversy that's surrounding us."

Bristol's laid back attitude toward all the haters is a direct contrast to her mother Sarah, who's been known to respond in hair-Twitter fashion to even the most minuscule of perceived slights.

She didn't pay much attention? HA! So why the disappointed look on her face? She fully expected to win. What a shame that a parent teaches a kid that it's ok to cheat to get what one wants.

THIS MAN ASLO SAID HE VOTED FOR BRISTOL 300 TIMES. FALSE ADDRESS WERE USED. WE DON'T HATE BRISTOL. WE APPRECAITE SHE HAS BEEN TRYING AND IMPROVING, BUT SHE IS NOT THE BEST DANCER AND YOU HAVE TO WIN BECAUSE YOU DESERVE IT, NOT BECAUSE YOU ARE CHEATING.
IT IS SO FRUSTRATING TO SEE THIS HAPPENING. TOM I HAVE LOST ALL MY RESPECT FOR YOU.

I totally agree with you,she stayed not because she could dance, but because of all the cheating, it was the only way,she would have been on. Lets face it dancing with stars was also looking for ratings as well. The star was used too loosely!
