Many celebs consider Dancing with the Stars the best weight loss program out there, as they have managed to shed massive amounts of weight while performing on the show. Bristol Palin, however, was unable to count herself among the DWTS weight loss success stories. Read on for Bristol’s take on the reality show and her physique.
Bristol Palin has a few goals for the upcoming all-star season on Dancing with the Stars. Near the top of the list? Keeping her weight where it is right now. The Life’s a Tripp star confirmed rumors that she gained weight during her last appearance on the show, telling People, ”My goal is not to gain any weight.”
Part of being on one of the hottest reality shows is having your private life discussed on a national level. This certainly was the case for Bristol, who was party to snarky comments from the press, and at one point, from Kathy Griffin. Bristol said of the negative attention, “I think it’s hurtful for any girl when someone’s criticizing their weight on a national level. It’s an awkward position.”
While we were not particularly impressed with Bristol’s dancing ability, we did feel for the celeb wannabe when anyone and everyone was bashing her weight. If you’re going to criticize Bristol’s performance, you might be better off focusing on her two left feet, not the way she fits into her ball gown. Unfortunately, whether her weight goes up or down, Bristol will still probably be party to attacks on her appearance. But that’s all part of show business, a career that Bristol seems dead-set on pursuing.
