ANCHORAGE (AP) — Bristol Palin says her mother didn’t force her to go on “Dancing with the Stars.”
The 20-year-old daughter of 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin used a Facebook post to react to a blog entry by a fellow contestant, comedian Margaret Cho. Cho wrote that the former Alaska governor blamed her daughter for the 2008 loss and told her she “owed” it to her to go on “Dancing with the Stars” to win back America’s love.
Bristol Palin — who was an unmarried teenager when she had her son, Tripp — says it saddens her that anyone would think her mother blamed her for anything that occurred in the election. She says her parents were her top supporters on the show.
Bristol Palin finished third in the contest.
