Dreams really do come true!
According to Deadline, Lifetime has greenlit a 10-episode reality series featuring 21-year-old Bristol Palin, the Season 11 Dancing With the Stars contestant who is just slightly more famous for being the daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp will focus on Bristol’s life in Alaska as a single mother to her 3-year-old son Tripp, as well as what it’s like to be a member of the Palin family. (No word yet on whether Sarah will appear as herself — or be played by Tina Fey.)
Rob Sharenow, Lifetime’s EVP of Programming, said, “From the first moment she was thrust into the public eye, Bristol and her son have been the subjects of a huge amount of curiosity and misunderstanding. This show will reveal the real Bristol Palin and her journey as a daughter, a mother, and a young woman making her way in the world.”
Bristol missed the Teen Mom boat, so this is pretty much the next best thing.
