Bristol Palin Eyeing Big Money Deals Post-'Dancing'

Bristol Palin didn't technically win 'Dancing With the Stars' last week, but financially, the 20-year-old mom is paso doble-ing all the way to the bank.
"Bristol made over $345,000 from being on the show and currently is getting $35,000 for each speaking gig she does," an insider reveals to me. "Yet, all that is going to feel like pocket change if one or two of the big deals she's currently working on actually happens."
Palin family friends tell me there is a major deal in the works for Bristol to be the spokesperson for a middle American fashion brand, as well as a book deal and a multi-million offer to appear on another reality show.

She just finished spending 12 weeks on the most watched television show in the country. You'd have to be dead, in prison or in a coma to not take note of her. She has her own IMDB page, for heavens sake.
"Why an "Old" DeckHand feels the need to trash a 20 year old kid who made a mistake"
Wow, you sound like a teenage girl defending Justin Bieber. Just saying.
Dirty jobs would be one
maybe she'll write about how hard it is to be a teenage mother. And maybe she'll be able to write it in words that will encourage young gilrs to listen.
She has a story that could depict how having a baby is not as glamerous as some of the high schoolers think it is.
Now that would be a book worth reading!
The Palin family has been hard working and as successful as they could be given their lot in life...up until the VP nomination. I believe they entered into it with no expectation of the horrible treatment they would receive. Now they are making money and living well. As I recall, the best revenge is living well. I like it! Just making gazillions of gallons of lemonade from all the puckered mouth lemons, haha.
I don’t regard a reality show as a career.
Maybe I’m just stupid that way.
Perhaps I like a sense of accomplishment for my money.
I love this country, where the government doesn't determine who gets rewarded.
Hate to agree with you, but she ought just stay behind closed doors until her mother decides what she is going to do come Nov. 2012.
They know they can derail Sarah by making her family a laughing stock.
Good for her. The palin family is great.
We like stories of American Exceptionalism.
Don’t care about it too much but I hope it drives Megan McCain insane with envy.
I have nothing against reality show personalities.
It’s just not what I want in a First Family.
If Palin wants to win she will need to at the very least pretend to get serious. Talk is cheap.
The country is a mess and all of this silly TV pap seems more like a popularity contest instead of postioning to be afforded the top job in the world.
“She has her own IMDB page, for heavens sake.”
So does Ron Jeremy.
Sarah Palin is going to have trouble in 2012, especially if Kate Gosselin runs for President and picks one of the Kardashians as a running mate.
She’s got the support of her family, she could pursue any field she wanted.
Wow, you sound like a teenage girl defending Justin Bieber.
No actually I'm defending against an OldDickHand who feels the need to trash a 20 year old kid.
What kind of old man feels the need to do that?
Personally I believe that his impeachment choice should have been firing squad or hanging!
"If you have been called a hater for not fawning over Palins. All others please stay out " thead?
