Wendy Williams Doesn't Mind if Bristol Palin's Reality Show Bar Fight Was Fake (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 26th 2011 7:00PM

A video of Bristol Palin getting into an argument in a bar, taken while she was filming her upcoming BIO reality show, went viral on the Web over the weekend. Some have questioned whether the trainwreck TV moment was authentic, or just a set-up to get people buzzing about the show.

In the clip, Bristol rides a mechanical bull, and then gets heckled by some of the bar's patrons, who clearly aren't fans of her mom's politics. With her show's cameras rolling, Bristol confronts one of the hecklers, and they get into a heated argument about why the man thought Sarah Palin was "going to hell." Bristol responds by telling him he probably hates her because he's gay.

Don Rickles Provides Color Commentary to Leno's Interview With Bristol Palin (VIDEO)

Don Rickles & Bristol Palin, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'What do you do when an interview is perhaps less than exciting? Why not have Don Rickles sitting on the couch next to the subject providing color commentary. It worked for Bristol Palin's appearance on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

Rickles provided the best reaction to the stories she told and answers she gave to Leno's questions. He gasped and made a cross with his fingers when she revealed that she lied to her mother so she could sneak out, get drunk and lose her virginity.

When Jay Leno asked her point-blank, not expecting an answer, if her mother Sarah Palin was going to put her hat in the ring and run for president, it was Rickles who was able to step in.

"Is there any reason she shouldn't run?" Leno asked when Bristol said they were discussing it.

"'Cause she could lose," Rickles chimed in.

Bristol Palin talks about Levi Johnston on 'The View'Bristol Palin made waves with her new book 'Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far' by talking about her sex life with Levi Johnston, losing her virginity and becoming pregnant. Most of her interviews since have addressed her claim that Johnston "stole" her virginity, a topic that surfaced once again Thursday when Palin appeared on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC).

Barbara Walters asked about the passage in the book where Palin described losing her virginity on a camping trip when she was drunk, and her claim about Johnston. "It must have been okay, because you kept on having sex with him, yeah?" said Walters.

Bristol Palin Talks Virginity, Chin Surgery, Mom's Presidential Ambitions (VIDEO)

Bristol Palin on 'Good Morning America'Sarah Palin hasn't announced that she's running for the presidency, but her daughter Bristol Palin said Monday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC) that if it does happen, it would be a good thing for America. Bristol, promoting her new book, 'Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far,' also talked about more controversial topics with Robin Roberts, including her memoir's claims that Levi Johnston "stole" her virginity and her recent corrective jaw surgery.

Pressed by Roberts about her allegations against Johnston, Bristol clarified that she wasn't accusing him of date-rape, but called losing her virginity a "foolish decision." She also addressed her recent jaw surgery, which caused a mini-media firestorm several weeks ago. Bristol put the procedure in the same category as getting braces or contact lenses.

Bristol Palin to Appear on 'The Secret Life of an American Teenager'

by Brad Trechak, posted Feb 23rd 2010 6:00PM
Bristol PalinThe eldest daughter of former Alaskan Governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin will be appearing on an episode of 'The Secret Life of an American Teenager.' She'll be playing herself, a role she is likely familiar with after all this time. The show itself centers around a teen pregnancy, which is a subject that Bristol is quite familiar with.

It's a pretty gutsy move on the part of Ms. Palin considering the anti-Hollywood rhetoric that Sarah has espoused again and again. In fact, this appearance is likely a response to that 'Family Guy' controversy with her mother, possibly to lend support to more "family friendly" programming found on channels like Disney and ABC Family.

The whole situation reeks of a public service announcement, albeit a fairly involved one. Of course, one could also argue that 'The Secret Life of an American Teenager' is an after-school special premise that was turned into a series.

'Family Guy' Actress With Down Syndrome Diffuses Sarah Palin's Latest TV Outrage

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 23rd 2010 10:00AM
Family Guy, Down Syndrome, Sarah PalinSarah Palin, a media gadfly who seems to have found more things to be offended about on television than the Parents Television Council, seems to pop up every time there is a joke about her and her family.

This time, Ellen, a character with Down syndrome voiced by actress Andrea Fay Friedman who also has Down syndrome, goes on a date with Chris and says that her mother is "the former Governor of Alaska." This sent the Palin family into an anger spiral that prompted her to trash the show and characterize it as an attack on her young son Trig, who also has Down syndrome, and everyone suffering from mental illness.

However, what Palin and the rest of the outraged among us fail to realize is that they suffer from a far greater disability: a lack of a sense of humor.

Palin had dirty bit cut from her SNL show

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 18th 2009 8:08PM
Here's a shocker: something from Sarah Palin's memoir that hasn't been disputed.

Saturday Night Live's Seth Meyers confirmed a claim made by the former Republican VP candidate that she asked the writers to remove a rather ribald joke from Amy Poehler's rap performance that referenced the phrase "drill, baby, drill" during her appearance on the show last year.

The full joke went, "When we're in Wascilla (sic), it's chill, baby, chilla/In the bedroom with Todd, it's drill, baby, drilla." That's weird, Take out the "with Todd" and you've got an exact quote from Levi Johnston's MySpace page (that joke so would have killed in 2008).

Letterman has the last laugh on Palin's "Jokegate"

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jun 28th 2009 9:03AM
David LettermanNot only did the "Fire David Letterman" crowd completely fail at their attempt to oust the late night host from his desk chair, but they actually helped him.

That makes them the least successful protest effort since 1977's memorable campaign to "Keep Pies Away from Anita Bryant." I believe it had something to do with preventing the spread of diabetes.

Variety reports that Letterman surpassed The Tonight Show in the ratings for the first time in nearly three-and-a-half years while the whole Palin family "Jokegate" debacle was still slowly being scraped off the fan.

Point/Counterpoint: Letterman's joke about the Palins was just that

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jun 16th 2009 2:01PM
Sarah Palin and David Letterman A lot of dissecting and exploratory surgery has been done on the jokes that David Letterman made about the Palin family. Even after Dave apologized and Palin accepted, people still want to perform a comedy autopsy to figure out what Dave's intent was and why Palin was so vocal in her reaction to it.

The problem is it's an unnecessary surgery and it fails to attack the root of the problem while the real cancer spreads like a California wildfire. E.B. White once said about such procedures that, "Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it." The only reason this frog hasn't died is because someone wants to keep it alive and no one has dared to touch the heart.

This is the side I will debate in the never-ending Letterman vs. Palin "Joke-gate" controversy while our very own John Scott Lewinski will offer a rebuttal later in the day that a public figure's children should always be off-limits.

Sarah Palin rips Dave a new one

by Brad Trechak, posted Jun 12th 2009 10:32AM
David LettermanIt looks like Sarah Palin got her chance to respond to Dave's inappropriate joke about her daughter. You know, the one he already apologized for. Palin chided that Dave should apologize to all young women around the country rather than just she and her family.

Was it a legitimate mistake on Dave's part and the part of his writers? I believe it was. Is Sarah Palin using this as a political opportunity to get her name even more out there than it is? Yeah, I believe that's the case too.

A more appropriate response from the Alaskan governor would have been to accept the apology and, if she wants to hold a grudge, simply never appear on Dave's show or give it him any further publicity. She's a public figure, and sadly so are her children even if they didn't choose to be. No doubt they will be the targets of inappropriate jokes time to time.

Video of her response is after the jump.

TV Squad Soap Report: Baby mama fever

by Allison Waldman, posted Sep 4th 2008 2:01PM
TV squad soapWhen I heard about the pregnancy, I was shocked. It was so unexpected, such a surprise, a complete unplanned occurrence that had me scratching my head and wondering what was going on. No, I'm not talking about the revelation that John McCain's choice for vice president, Governor Sarah Palin's unmarried teenaged daughter is pregnant.

I'm talking about Guiding Light's Reva Shayne's stunning discovery that she's having a baby well into her 40's and after a near-fatal bout with breast cancer.

Seriously, I was floored by that turn in the storyline. The writers had me and every other viewer fearful that Reva's breast cancer had returned. On the brink of her marrying Jeffrey, Reva learned that the drugs she'd been taking had actually acted like fertility pills and, bada-bing, bada-boom, Reva's having a baby.
