Were you curious as to why it was Bristol Palin, and not her mother Sarah, who was selected for Dancing with the Stars. Well, according to Margaret Cho, it seems Sarah had something to do with that.
"I heard from someone who really should know (really should seriously know the dirt really really) that the only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do it," Cho wrote on her blog. "Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly (in the circles that I heard it from) for not winning the election, and so she told Bristol she 'owed' it to her to do DWTS so that 'America would fall in love with her again' and make it possible for Sarah Palin to run in 2012 with America behind her all the way." Yikes, that's pretty specific and totally believable.
Continued Cho: "Instead of being supposedly 'handicapped' by the presence of her teen mom daughter, now Bristol is going to be an 'asset' — a celebrity beloved for her dancing. I am sure the show wasn't in on this (but who knows anything really)."
Does Cho think Bristol's entire performance was a sham? Not at all! "I am proud of her for shaking her ass! But keep in mind there are other forces at work here and it’s not just for the love of dance," Cho wrote, adding, "Now I am scared I am going to wake up with a decapitated moose head in my bed." We would be scared, too.
What do you think? Does Cho's theory hold any water?
