Tonight, Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp begins on Lifetime TV. Tune in at 10:00 p.m. Eastern.
With never-before-granted access to Bristol’s real-life experiences, the show follows her everyday life as a single mother living under intense media scrutiny that comes from her lineage as the daughter of former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
The series follows Bristol’s move from Wasilla to Los Angeles with Tripp and her sister Willow, and back to Alaska as she deals with parenting and disciplining her toddler without Tripp’s father. Giving viewers a unique look at the difficult decisions she has to make for her relationships, career and family, "Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp" will capture how these challenges test her resolve as she single-handedly writes the next chapter in her and Tripp’s life.
Update: Governor Palin placed the following on Facebook and shared the link to the promo:
Bristol's new show "Life's a Tripp" premieres tonight on the Lifetime channel at 10pm/9c! I think people viewing the show will see how independent and hardworking she is -- as is Willow who is shown making the move from graduating high school early to working and moving on to her next school. Bristol's show is the antithesis of any glamorization of single parenthood. Hers is a very real life (in fact, the show's producer recently mentioned that Bristol has a very ordinary job, but that was one of the few places she wouldn't allowed filmed because it is in a doctor's office). Single motherhood is shown to be as difficult as it is -- especially with the added challenges that come with having people irrationally dislike you. But I think people will also see that Bristol doesn't see herself as a "victim." She just deals with the challenges, learns from them, and moves on. The show's first installment tonight lays the foundation of the show, so it has to delve into some backstory; but the series moves on from all that stuff and becomes a great Alaskana show that keeps getting better as it goes. I hope you'll join me in tuning in tonight.
