Bristol Palin Hates Twitter and “Life’s A Tripp” Gets Slapped With A Couple Awkward Lawsuits

Bristol Palin is the second child and oldest daughter of former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin and her husband, Todd Palin. After Bristol Palin became a single mother at age 18, she began to publicly advocate teenage pregnancy prevention and is now a paid speaker on the subject of teen pregnancy. Bristol now works on the speakers’ circuit asking between $15,000 and $30,000 for each appearance. She has signed with Single Source Speakers and is currently listed on their website. She’s available for conferences, fundraisers, special events and holidays, as well as women’s, youth, abstinence and pro-life programs. “Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp” on Lifetime is a reality docu-series that provides an exclusive glimpse into Bristol’s daily life as a single mother making her way in the world, while living under the constant spotlight as a member of one of America’s most high profile families. With never before granted access to Bristol’s real life experiences, the reality series will reveal how she adjusts to her new life in Alaska. Where she faces the many pressures raising her toddler son Tripp alone and maintains the close relationship that she holds with her parents and siblings. Unfortunately Bristol Palin’s “Life’s A Tripp” is another one of those really stupid reality shows that should have never made it past the bargaining table. To bad Bristol’s reality show just got a legal smack down…

This first lawsuit to originate over “Life’s A Tripp,” is with a heckler whom Bristol confronted on camera while she was riding a mechanical bull at the Saddle Ranch nightclub in Hollywood. The heckler filed a lawsuit accusing her of defamation. The plaintiff Stephen Hanks has also named Lifetime in the lawsuit, claiming he had not given permission to be filmed. Video of the bar incident was widely circulated in 2011. Stephen reportedly yelled at Bristol and she then confronted him in defense. The bar fight went down like this. Stephen screamed, “Your mother’s a whore!” Bristol got pissed off and marched up to the man. Stephen: She (your mother) is evil. Bristol: You want her dead? Stephen: You know what, if there is a hell, and I don’t think there is one, she will be there. Bristol: OK, why is that? Stephen: She’s evil. She’s evil. Bristol: Is it because you’re a homosexual? Stephen: Pretty much! Bristol: And that’s why you hate her? Stephen: And why do you say I’m a homosexual? Bristol: Because I can tell you are. On the way out she got into a fight with another pair of angry drunks, including one who yells, “White trash Wasilla!” and “You fucking bitch!” as Bristol and friends storm out of the bar. Bristol said the incident helped her decide to leave Los Angeles and return to her hometown in Alaska. No kidding…

Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp is produced by Associated Television International, along with David McKenzie, Jim Romanovich and David Martin as executive producers. Lifetime’s Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and Noah Pollack and Robyn Schnieders is the show’s co-executive producer. Lifetime has surprisingly ordered 10 episodes for original broadcast. Before Lifetime’s “Life’s A Tripp,” Bristol had another reality show in the works, as she worked with a charity and lived with her close friends, Kyle and Christopher Massey. According to Deadline, the pilot never made it to air and the Massey brothers are now suing over it. Angel Massey and the brothers are suing ATI and its head, in an effort to try and stop the new Lifetime reality series, which premiered on Tuesday, June 19. The Masseys are angry and suing for “copyright infringement, fraud and deceit, breach of contract, bad faith, misappropriation, tortious interference and unfair competition.” They’re also seeking a “permanent injunction and monetary damages.” Luckily Bristol was not named as a defendant in the 31-page lawsuit, which was recently filed in Los Angeles Superior Court against Associated Television International, Helping Hands LLC and the shows main executive producer David McKenzie.

In a November 2011 interview with Rumor Fix, the Massey brothers shot down rumors that the show had been scraped, saying it will most likely air on BIO sometime in December 2011 or January 2012. Kyle also revealed during the short interview with the gossip site, “Right now we’re in the final stages of finishing production up.” Christopher said, as for living with Bristol and Tripp, “It’s crazy. It’s something that we definitely had to get used to.” The show was originally titled Helping Hands and was created for the Bio Channel, which A&E owns that network and Lifetime. The awkward reality show was going to feature Bristol and her toddler son, Tripp, rooming with the Massey brothers while embarking on various charitable ventures together in the Los Angeles area. Angel told E! Online the following, “It is unfortunate that after months of trying to resolve this matter the professional way, we were left with no other course of action than to take legal action to protect ourselves. If you read the entire complaint and particularly pages 8-11, you will see how we created the show, registered the show and did all the leg work to bring this idea to TV and to the defendants, who stole our concept.”

The drama doesn’t end there as everyone knows that Bristol is vocal about her feelings, frequently hopping onto her soapbox to preach to the masses. In a June 12 blog post she said, “I’m not on Twitter, but my name is definitely mentioned in Tweets.  For those of you who have read the comments on posts like “Mr. President, When Should I Expect Your Call?” and “Hail to the Chiefs: Malia and Sasha Obama,” you’re familiar with the hate that is thrown my way.  You know, bullying in the name of tolerance and all. However, someone brought Michelle Malkin’s tweet to my attention tonight. She tweeted that it’s Time for a Bristol Palin HateFest on Twitter. That, my friends, is why I’m not on Twitter. I love talking to you guys on Facebook and on this blog, but that’s as much of an internet presence as I need now.  For those of you who are on Twitter, please feel free to tweet out my posts and to spread some love for me there. You can tell I need it! Yes, I know she was pointing out the Twitter hate. Thanks, Michelle Malkin for pointing out the liberal hypocrisy! I appreciate your work!” 

Here’s what I understand from her statement. Poor innocent Bristol doesn’t want the hate she gets on Twitter, she also wants to control the comments she receives, that’s fine. But at the same she only hinders free speech and opinions of naysayers. Fact of the matter is NOT everyone is going to like her and she is no one’s role model. She only appears to be attention thirsty and hungry for fame. I would think that she would want more of a presence on the internet making her more “famous.” She could save face and have her Facebook posts automatically post to twitter, so she never has to log on and read all the hate comments that she can’t do anything about. Bristol has been bitching about her life for years and broadcasting her problems for the world to see. She is also a big time deleter after she posts really stupid rants. Why must she play the victim role? She chooses to keep her life in the spotlight and this new ripped off reality show of hers is only making matters worse. I can’t believe that Americans are supposed to feel bad for her and only give her praise. You serious? I predict she’ll be running for office soon, as she keeps attacking politicians.
