Bristol Palin’s Next Step: ‘Dancing With the Stars’?

leave a comment »

Can Bristol Palin dance?

We might find out if she ends up as a contestant on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” the second biggest show on television behind “American Idol.”

Bristol, 19, the oldest daughter of Sarah Palin, may be tangoing on season 11 of the dance competition. She could be appearing along with David Hasselhoff, Audrina Patridge, The Situation and Brandy in the upcoming season, which premieres Sept. 20. ABC would not confirm any guest stars for the season. The official lineup will be announced Monday.

Earlier this summer, Bristol and her on-again, off-again fiancé, Levi Johnston, were rumored to be shopping for a reality television show. Johnston and Bristol are the parents of Tripp, who was born in Dec. 2008. Bristol is reportedly taking her Tripp with her to Los Angeles where “Dancing With the Stars” is filmed.

Johnston will appear Friday on CBS’ “The Early Show.” He reportedly will say he regrets apologizing to Sarah Palin in a People magazine interview. Johnston, too, wants a reality television show and plans to run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, in hopes of landing one. Sarah Palin once served as Wasilla’s mayor.

Last month, Bristol made a guest appearance on ABC Family’s teen drama, “The Secret Life of the American Teenage,” in an episode centered on teen pregnancy.

Sarah Palin has been filming her own show, “Alaska,” for The Learning Channel. She also appears on FOX News as a commentator.

Earlier this week, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported that Bristol will be paid $14,000 to speak at the Louisville Marriott Downtown on behalf of Lifehouse, a home for single mothers in Louisville. She often speaks on behalf of abstinence and pro-life programs.

“Dancing with the Stars” has hosted a few political types, including Jerry Springer (remember, he was once mayor of Cincinnati), former U.S. Rep. Tom Delay, and The Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson.

Will Sarah Palin appear on “Dancing with the Stars?” Betcha she’s looking for some dancing shoes right now.
