Last night on Dancing with the Stars, fans watched as Bristol Palin had an emotional breakdown during rehearsals, but she and Mark Ballas managed to come out and give a decent performance. Now, mama bear, aka Sarah Palin is speaking out and defending her daughter’s behavior. No surprise there, right?
Dancing With The Stars’ alum Bristol Palin broke down during rehearsals, even accusing Mark of “not wanting to be there with her.” Clearly, the death threats and suspicious packages that have been sent to Palin are affecting her emotionally.
Sarah Palin recently explained on Facebook that was the reason that Bristol has been on edge: “I’m in California today to support Bristol. I’m sorry to see that she’s again getting those annoying death threats and more ‘mysterious white powder’ sent to her while on DWTS this All-Star season. These threats sure waste a lot of time, production and public resources.”
Bristol and Mark, despite the breakdown, are just fine now. Ballas told People Magazine after the show: “We love each other. Sometimes people piss each other off. We’ve swept it under the rug and carried on. We had a rough day out of many, many, many days that we’ve spent together.”
As for Sarah Palin, she insists that the haters can keep on hating, because it’s not going to do them any good. Palin wrote: “Do the haters really think this will stop Bristol and Mark and the show’s producers from keeping on keeping on? Silly critics – after all these years of goofy antics like this we find these efforts are actually quite motivating! Bristol’s not letting this get her down.”
