Bristol Palin Headed To Small Screen

Bristol Palin is taking her life experience as a teen mom and bringing it the small screen, with a guest appearance on The Secret Life of the American Teenager set to air this summer. Palin, who will be playing a friend of Amy’s (Shailene Woodley) at a music program for teen mothers, tells US Magazine, “I am thrilled to be on this show and to be a part of a program that educates teens and young adults about the consequences of teen pregnancy.”

Executive producer Brenda Hampton is just as happy about Bristol’s appearance, saying, “Bristol Palin is the most famous teenage mother in America. We’re thrilled to have her join us, and I think she will bring additional attention to the issues facing teen parents that we’ve been exploring for a couple of seasons now.”

Bristol Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin, and ex-boyfriend Levi Johnston welcomed son Tripp in December 2008, split in March 2009, and are currently in the midst of a very ugly custody battle.

Consequences of teen pregnancy? I found MTV’s “16 and Pregnant” more realistic than “Secret Life”. Even the girl who preached and practiced abstinence gave it up before the second season was out.
