Bristol Palin’s Tantrum On Dancing With The Stars Defended By Her Mom

October 09, 2012 10:00 AM by Lisa Princ

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.”

    Stupid spoiled cow.
    She has no talent, no figure and can’t dance.
    Riding mamma’s apron strings as long as she can make an easy buck.

    Bristol is lovely and has a great figure…She’s young-cut her some slack! People are always jealous of celebrities especially when they have no talent themselves…Some of the meanest people on earth are the ones who comment on public forums…And what’s wrong with making money? I’ll bet if someone offered you a lucrative job in the spotlight, you’d take it too! It’s sad that most people are quick to judge people who aren’t like them…

    How can it be that the worst dancer keeps staying and much better dancers keep getting knocked off .Is the same ballot box stuffing that kept Bristol on before going on again?Am I the only one in the whole world that can’t understand that worst is not best.

    I’m very annoyed with the producers of Dancing with the Stars for including Bristol on the All Stars Show. She was certainly never one of the better dancers and should not be here. When she was on in an earlier season, she stayed around much longer than she should have while better dancers were voted off. The same thing is happening again. It’s time for her to go!!! She’s not a horrible dancer, but she certainly doesn’t have the talent of the others.

    It is annoying and unfair that Bristol is still on the show and other performers are working hard and proving that they should still be on the show. The other performers are great actors because I would not be able to keep a positive look in my face knowing that she is still there because of her mothers apperances on the show. Get her off Judges before you lose viewers we can only take so much!!!

    I have been a fan for DTWS every season and vote every week. I am just in shock that Drew and Helio were voted off this week. I can’t figure out how
    Kirstie and Bristol are still there. Neither one can dance and its obvious to everyone they are not the same caliber as the other dancers.. Its pretty much a joke and surely they are embarrassed. They know they do not belong on DTWS. If they survive another round I will not watch this show again. Just to ridiculous.

    Man, I’m so glad I went a little farther down the page. It is so wonderful to know I’m not the only one that thinks something smells on that show. Bette is right, neither Kirstie or Bristol should be still there. I agree, if you don’t start being fair to the other dancers, I’m done with one of my favorite shows that I can hardly wait to get started. <3<3

    Long time watcher of Dancing with the Stars but not any more! Let the show be cancelled–this has turned into the Palin Family Show. Who else even knows that the package should go to CBS and not ABC and who else could drive onto the lot with the package rather than mailing it? Bristol was shown in an unflattering video and Palin’s damage control went into overdrive. Anderson Cooper just said what everyone expects–just a hoax just like all the Alaskan voters found that out that their money was spent to spin lies by Palin’s writers–wrote flattering comments in the newspapers and on the internet–trying to twist the truth so she looked like she had some common sense or didn’t look so dishonest. Good thing that some of these employees have now come out and told the truth about how Sarah Palin tried to make herself look better. If McCain had only asked the Alaskan residents if she was qualified rather than her hired cheerleaders who kept their jobs if they kept lying.

    Bristol is smoking hot! She looks great these days. By the way, it seems like most of the people that criticize her looks are you jealous women. I don’t know too many heterosexual guys that wouldn’t love to hook up with Bristol Palin!

    It is funny that nobody complaining here seems to have a big problem when the worst dancer on the show, Kirstie Alley, who has survived and is still dancing.

    It is only Bristol that gets you fired up because you liberals just can’t get over your hatred for Sarah Palin and her politics. Lets stop pretending people.

    Couldn’t agree more with what most have said here. WHY was Bristol brought back to the All-Star show, she is NOT an All-Star. I’m ok with Kirstie being on there even though she’s not the best dancer, at least she has a great personality and she’s fun to watch. Bristol is just blah! I take a quick snooze during her performances, and her attitude is rotten! I watched this season against my better judgement because of All-Stars, but I’m getting more angry each week as some group of supporters that don’t even watch the show are voting for her. I’m fed up!

    I like Bristol and I think she is trying very hard. She made it to the top 4 last time she was on DWTS, so go Bristol. I like it when a star comes on and don’t have any dance background, that is what I thought it was suppose to be about.

    The Palins have replaced the Kardashians as the most hated family in America. At least the Kardashians don’t constantly call the media and beg for more attention. They have learned that they don’t need to give political advise unless they are asked for it. And they don’t have to hire speech writers or publicity agents to keep reminding the American people how dumb they are. Seems like the Kardashians have all graduated from high school–the Palins found just getting the GED too challenging.

    Keep hearing about all the Republicans that turned down Dancing with the Stars–latest were Ann Romney and Cindi McCain. Beautiful, graceful, classy turned it down. Greedy pigs like Bristol jumped at the chance to act like the town slut and show her latest breast reduction and liposuction procedures. Just wonder what happened to the baby bump she had last season.
