Bristol Palin is back in the reality-TV game — and her new show is going to air on a major network.
Palin, 21, has signed a new reality show deal that will pay her close to $2 million for the first season.
The docuseries will feature “never-before-granted access to Bristol’s real-life experiences growing into womanhood,” according to Lifetime.
And Bristol is excited about the title of the show – Trippin’.
The “Dancing With the Stars” alum and eldest daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin decided to move back to her home state last September after she was challenged over her mom’s politics while riding a mechanical bull at L.A.’s Saddle Ranch bar.
She vowed to live a quiet live in Alaska for the rest of her life.
“I wasn’t really into the Hollywood thing,” she said. “After that, I just realized that I was over it. I was ready to come home.”
Now she wants to be back in the spotlight.
Twenty-four Trippin’ episodes have been ordered and will appear on one of the three broadcast networks (though they are not saying which one). There is no air date yet, but according to sources close to Bristol, “she wants it to be soon. She hates being out of the limelight. And she wants to exploit Tripp as much as possible before he gets old enough to understand it all.”
Will Levi Johnston appear in the show?
“Of course!” one of the shows producers told WWN. “It’s Trippin’ for a reason. It’s about Bristol and Tripp, but it’s all about the wild and crazy life she’s going to be living in Hollywood again. Bristol is ready to ride the bull again!”
