Bristol Palin is getting ready for the launch of her new reality series, her second gig so far (the first one was shelved). To promote it, she stopped by Good Morning America to speak of what viewers at home should expect from “Life's a Tripp.”
Video of the interview is below, embedded at the end of the article.
One of the first things people should expect
is a healthy dose of the real Bristol, the woman (and mother) she is when the spotlight doesn't shine on her.
“People are going to see the real Bristol in this show. [I'm] a grounded, normal mom,” Bristol says.
The new show, “Life's a Tripp,” will focus on Bristol, her 3-year-old son Tripp and her younger sister Willow, and their adventure of moving to Los Angeles.
She promises it will be worth a watch, if only to see how she is in real life, stripped of all the lies the tabloids have been so busy writing about her.
“I think I have tough skin and I know that God is on my side
and my faith is everything to me… And when people are talking poorly about me, I think it just gives me more motivation to want to do more and want to speak up even louder and they’re just not doing themselves well by doing that,” Bristol says.
“I think the people who don’t like me, I’m not trying to change their opinion on it, but it’s going to be a good show,” she promises.
She doesn't usually like the spotlight but, she explains, working on this new show hardly felt like it because it was so much fun.
“I don’t really think you get used to all of it but Tripp was used to it the whole time. He didn’t care if the cameras were there or not. He’s still going to be rowdy, he’s still going to be a little terror, but it was fun. It was a lot of fun,” she adds.
In the same interview, Bristol explains that fans should also expect her mother, former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin to make a couple of appearances but, above all, lots of realness.
