Bristol Palin is following in her mother’s footsteps … at least when it comes to reality television.

Since her 2010 Dancing With the Stars third place finish, the poster child for conservative teen pregnancy hasn’t been in the media much—except to complain about President Obama listening to his kids regarding gay marriage. But now we’ll get to hear Bristol’s opinions on a regular basis as part of Lifetime’s “highly-anticipated docu-series,” Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp.


What to expect? According to the press release, the show follows the younger Palin as she moves to Los Angeles from Alaska and then back again, detailing her trials and tribulations as a single mom “under the intense media scrutiny that comes from her lineage” as Sarah Palin’s daughter. There are those who might at least find some solace in the fact that like her mother, Bristol has chosen the path of Reality TV over politics … for now.
