“Star” is redefined again, and the Emmys should think about saluting John McCain for all his contributions to the reality genre.
Nineteen-year-old Bristol Palin - the longtime abstinence advocate famous for, among other things, the lack of contraception that resulted in the 2008 birth of love child Tripp Johnston – will compete on the next "Dancing With The Stars" alongside former “The Hills” star Audrina Partridge, former “America’s Got Talent” star David Hasselhoff, former “America’s Got Talent” star Brandy Norwood, former Laker Rick Fox, pop star Michael Bolton and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino from “Jersey Shore,” according to E! sources.
Palin was back in the news recently when she briefly renewed her relationship with baby-daddy Levi Johnston -- but no word has yet emerged on whether or not she maintained her stand on celibacy as the couple renewed their friendship this summer.
Palin’s mom, who says she believes David Letterman likes to joke about rape on his late-night chat show, has her own reality show, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” coming this fall to TLC. The father of Bristol’s toddler, Levi Johnston, is reportedly pitching a reality show about him running for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.
