More than a year after it was first announced, Bristol Palins latest foray into reality TV will finally become, well, a reality, on June 19.
Only the premise has changed again slightly, bringing the premise tally to three, to date.
Lifetime announced Tuesday it will telecast two episodes of Bristol Palin: Lifes a Tripp each Tuesday night, following Bristols life as a single mom living under intense media scrutiny that comes from her lineage as the daughter of former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
Only now shell be moving from Wasilla to Los Angeles with her younger sister Willow. And, apparently, back to Alaska as she deals with parenting and disciplining her toddler without Tripps father.

Yes, claiming that a single mom who got pregnant in HS and is now using the kid to get a TV show is a demonstration of family and conservative values is ridiculous.
i agree with you and hg. this bugs me,and i’m an admirer
of sarah palin. exploitation of fame and fast cash-kind of a turn off. is she not “college material”?
Bristol Palin became a national spokeswoman for abstinence, and not aborting children, it is a formal role.
Her having sex with her high school sweetheart did not remove her from the human race, or condemn her forever, Bristol has become an inspirational representative of life and abstinence.
“In May 2009, at age 18, Palin started working with the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy to inform young people about the negative consequences of teenage pregnancy. The campaign’s spokesman, said that working with Palin made sense, because “she’s had the highest-profile teen pregnancy of the year.” Several interviews and pictorials for similar organizations followed. Also in May 2009 Palin was named a Teen Pregnancy Prevention Ambassador for the Candies Foundation, a teen pregnancy prevention organization that is a division of the Candie’s clothing brand.”
“Her duties as a paid spokeswoman involved attending town hall meetings, public service announcements, and giving interviews on morning talk shows.”
And then got back together with Levi behind her parents' back and after he had slimed the family in public.
It will be a cold day in hell before I would ever hold this dope up as a model for anything. And I have three grown, productive, stable daughters.
You are so full of troll hatred, that you can’t even seem to recognize that she works in conservative causes, and for abstinence and pro-life.
I think you are pro-abortion, and that is one reason that you despise social conservatives so much, but really, this white hot anger at the Palins is not sane.
"Unwanted" media scrutiny - ha, that's funny. She's starring in her own reality show. Seems like she's inviting "media scrutiny."
I don’t know about Willow but Bristol doesn’t want to be left alone.
She’s very active on facebook and actually sounds pretty darn smart.
I hope she stays true to her values and is a success.
I’ve always liked her and all the Palin girls.
The show turning out to be good or bad doesn't matter.....both the show and she will be panned because of the name "Palin"....nothing else matters.
Man, do you realize how childish you seem with that petty hatred, Bristol Palin and her son’s father resumed communication and talking to each other for a while.
That was a normal thing for them to do.
What isn’t normal is your passionate hatred against anything Palin or involving social conservatism.
And Levi will want half the money!
You just signed up with the biggest Palin hater left on freerepublic, and a pro-abortion liberal.
He has had so many close death brushes with JR, that we couldn’t begin to count them.
I don’t understand what this young woman and conservative activist could have done to create such antipathy among a handful of supposedly decent,loving Christian folks.
All kidding aside, I'm a HUGE fan of Sarah Palin. But, like you, I'm just not into hero worship.
I made an error, the number one Palin hater as designated by JR is still here, she wasn’t banned, wtc911 is second.
There is hero worship, and then there is white hot blind hatred.
Then there are those who hate social conservatism.
Bristol and Willow did not choose this life. This life was thrust upon them by the American people who called their mother to service.
It is likely that Bristol and even Willow will follow their Mother’s footsteps and become political commentators and perhaps even high political office.
I agree, 100%. If there were any blind hatred of a Palin here, I would jump on it, maybe even before you! But I just don't see any blind hatred here. I just see reasonable criticism.
It is not only the Palin name, but Bristol has her own conservative voice, the media will never give her fair treatment.
You could see the treatment of her book, although it became a best seller on the New York Times lists.
I could be if good intentions are outweighed by a life that, to date, is chaotic and unrepresentative of "traditional values and morality." Bristol should settle down, find a "father-figure" for her kid and make something of herself before she tries to become some sort of conservative example.
She's just trying to make some moolah while her Mom's still in the news. I'm way tired of it.
