Bristol Palin Reality Series, 'Life's A Tripp,' Coming to Lifetime
Bristol Palin's reality show, "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp," is heading to Lifetime. This series is different than the show originally ordered by BIO featuring Palin and her son Tripp living with fellow "Dancing With the Stars" contestant Kyle Massey.
"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," Rob Sharenow, executive vice president of programming at Lifetime Networks, said in a statement. "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."
"Life's a Tripp" will consist of 10 half-hour episodes and follow the single mom as she adjusts to life back in Alaska. Palin moved to Los Angeles following her time on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars." In January, Palin moved back to Alaska, saying that she was tired of the L.A. life.
"I wasn't really into the Hollywood thing,” she told the magazine. "After that, I just realized that I was over it. I was ready to come home."
Plans for her first reality show were scrapped in November. Here's how Lifetime describes the new series:
With never-before-granted access to Bristol's real-life experiences growing into womanhood, "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp" will reveal how she adjusts to her life in Alaska, where daily she faces the many pressures of raising her toddler son Tripp alone and maintains the close relationship she holds with her parents, former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin and Todd, and siblings. Steadfastly moving forward both personally and professionally, Bristol will be confronted by the many difficult life decisions people must make regarding parenthood, family, relationships and career - giving viewers a unique look at how these true-to-life challenges test her resolve as she single-handedly writes the next chapter in her and Tripp's young life.
