Bristol Palin Eyeing Big Money Deals Post-'Dancing'

By Rob Shuter

Nov 29th 2010 03:03PM

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.

I believe that she was working as a receptionist in a Dentist’s office, she has only just turned 20.

Thanks for posting that, many have poor memories when it comes to the Bush twins.

Yep, they conveniently ignore the twins drinking and getting wasted, even making excuses for them.

I'll say this. Sarah Palin is separating the true conservatives from the RINO loving hacks here on FR.

I agree. Bristol is a lovely young lady, but the only reason she made it to the last week of DWTS is because her last name is Palin. It certainly wasn't her dancing ability which, although it improved, was just mediocre.

Bristol's had her fun and more than her 15 minutes. Now she should go back home and be a mom again to Tripp. And she should find a job the old-fashioned way - through hard work and personal initiative - not because her mother happens to be Sarah Palin.

Thats a shame then. One would think that she would have some respect for the office her mother is wanting to hold.
She has made enough money to sit back until the primaries are over.

If her name was Bristol Smith instead of Bristol Palin she'd be a single mom in a double-wide trailer in Wasilla. Being a Palin is all she's qualified to do.

We will never know what her life, or yours would have been like if they were someone else's lives.

What a 19/20 girl who couldn't even make it out of high school without getting knocked-up, has done to merit any of this attention, is truly a great mystery

Apparently she has merited your attention.

Why an "Old" DeckHand feels the need to trash a 20 year old kid who made a mistake, I think would be a great mystery to most reasonable people.

Looks like Bristol has some career choices ahead

What do guidance counselors call a career of being exploited with televised opportunities to embarrass your mother?

Oh yes , I know the stock answer... She made a lot of money, so it has to be good.

I hope when Hannity books her to bite heads off chickens, he allows the audience to participate. She draws votes better than Dale Earnhart Jr. or Ron Paul.

"Apparently she has merited your attention."

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.

Now what is Bristol going to put in a book?,/i>

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!

If I were Bristol Palin I'd be thinking “if they are stupid enough to pay me for this you dang right I'm going to take advantage of it!” She'd be a fool to not do so. How many of you, if you were 19 and had a child, would turn down an opportunity to make big bucks?

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.

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.

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?

And our sexual predator in chief who was impeached for his unlawful behavior is worth over $100 Million. while the WACO children rot in their graves he travels the country weaving his lies and earning money.

Personally I believe that his impeachment choice should have been firing squad or hanging!

The media had a “hands-off” code with regard to Ms. Clinton. She is hardly a saint and yes some photos of drunken Chelsea did find their way onto the internet. Don’t kid yourself regarding the supposed “virtue” of Chelsea. You would do well to remember she comes from a mother who is in full support of “choice” and if Chelsea were to have been “knocked-up” (as you so colorfully put it), she would have quietly (again the media would stay silent) had it “taken care of”. Do you really believe that Chelsea, daughter of free-lover Billy Bob and a lib Mom like Hillary abstained from having sex during her teen years? Really?

“I hate this about our country... Rewarding people for doing nothing.

“This will come back and haunt Sarah. Mark my words.”

______________________________________________

Yep. What I find particularly despicable is how if an unwed mother sees an upswing of an economic situation, she still gets her child support payments. Bristol could very well become a millionaire and still hold out her hand for child support payments.

What this tells me is that the Palin stance of ‘rugged individualism’ or ‘conservatism’ is actually a charade. It tells me that the Palin stance is actually ‘grrrrrrl power’.

If you want to understand slavery in America, talk to a divorced man with kids or a man who has a child out of wedlock. The transfer of money from man to woman under the guise of ‘child support’ has no oversight and even if the woman becomes wealthy, she still gets the money. There is a reason why Obama made child support a signature issue of his (very brief) Senate career. It fits the distribution of wealth he loves.

In his famous essay on the Ruling Class, Codevilla also mentions this issue.

If women actually had to marry men in order to get access to their money, you would immediately see a dramatic decline in premarital sex, in shack-ups, and such “relationships”. I find this to be the most pressing issue in America today because of how it destroys the family.

Anyone cheering Bristol in this should also cheer Levi when he makes money. After all, both Bristol and Levi are making money based on no achievement. Perhaps Bristol and Levi have more in common than we imagined.

Bristol needs to make money somehow to support herself and her baby but she shouldn't be turned into some kind of celebrity. That will send the message to many impressionable girls that teenage pregnancy is cool and can turn you into a star.

Let’s wait and see what Bristol does before passing judgment.

The reality shows are hard for me to watch. For instance, American Chopper, the motorcycle-building show. We’re lucky to see ten seconds of motorcycle building. They shoot a lot of personality stuff and edit it together in scenes lasting about 5 seconds.

Too bad Sarah didn’t do a series for PBS but let’s assume she has a strategy.

Yeah, the Who's Who self-listing of Freeper RINOs on this thread is exquisite.

I particularly want to hear more about the "collective" family values of the Clintons. It would be especially nice if it included a discussion of the difference in taste between the bottom of Hillary's and Bill's shoes.

LOLOLOL!

You know Hildy... I see more hate coming from you than I have ever seen come from a Palin supporter and as to hypocrisy I think you have mastered that as well. I posted kind words to you once, truly concerned about a situation (for which you asked for prayers) in your life, only to find that meanwhile you were on other threads trashing fellow Freepers. It truly surprised me to see your behavior. Perhaps you should take care in how you trash others and look for the log in your own eye.

“What a 19/20 girl who couldn’t even make it out of high school without getting knocked-up, has done to merit any of this attention, is truly a great mystery.”

Well, I suppose if Chelsea has gotten “knocked up” Bill and Hillary would have argued for an abortion, you know - so that Chelsea wouldn’t have to go through life with big target on her back.

Quite frankly, I’m really proud Bristol kept her baby. It shows a level of understanding, maturity and love many liberals don’t possess.

Further, if Bristol’s options are to make a shit load of money and make life a little easier, or go back to Wasilla and work as a receptionist - I suspect she is thinking of her future earnings. Again, Chelsea doesn’t have to worry about money because her public servant parents are multi-millionaires. Gee, how does that work again? Public servants with millions? Oh - but let’s beat up someone who has an option to make money - even if it is entertainment?
